Gameday approaches - San Francisco 49ers at Indianapolis Colts

Aug 14, 2010 at 9:41 AM--


After a week filled with news of nose tackle Aubrayo Franklin contract status, defensive tackle Kentwan Balmer being A.W.O.L., wide receiver Michael Crabtree's neck injury, and the shocker of running back Glen Coffee's abrupt retirement, the 49ers are about to put on the pads and play their first preseason game.

On Sunday, August 15 at 10:00 am, the San Francisco 49ers will play against the Indianapolis Colts. Many questions exist for the 2010 49ers, who many "experts" have predicted would win the NFC West.

After a "so-so" training camp, will quarterback Alex Smith finally be able to live up to his draft pick status? How will that offensive line, now starting two rookies, hold up against a pass rush? Can safety Taylor Mays eventually be the next Ronnie Lott? How will Michael Crabtree look after his first training camp under his belt? Who will step up to take over in place of Coffee?

Some of those questions may be answered on Sunday and fans are eagerly awaiting their team's debut.

San Francisco 49ers at Indianapolis Colts can be watched live at 10:00 am on NFL Network.

Who are you most excited to see play this week?

The offseason is underway for the San Francisco 49ers, which means the team's decision makers will soon have to determine which free agents they would like to try to keep and which ones they'll have to let go. One of the more interesting cases is defensive end Chase Young, whom the 49ers added during the regular season from the Washington Commanders in exchange for a third-round draft pick. It may be hard for the 49ers to prevent Young from being more than a rent-a-player, but Young's friend and former Ohio State University teammate Nick Bosa made it clear Tuesday he'd like to see general manager John Lynch and the 49ers brass find a way to keep Young on the team. In this edition of the 49ers Notebook, we delve into a range of topics starting with Bosa's

Fred Warner and Dre Greenlaw are arguably the best linebacker duo in the NFL, serving as the heart of the San Francisco 49ers defense while sharing a strong bond. Therefore, it's no surprise that Warner felt deeply for his teammate and friend when Greenlaw suffered a torn Achilles in the second quarter of Super Bowl 58 against the Kansas City Chiefs. The following video captures Warner's raw emotional response after Greenlaw was carted off the field, revealing the profound anguish experienced by the star linebacker, even as teammate Nick Bosa attempted to console him. This hurts to watch so much. Via

Klint Kubiak is among several assistant coaches departing the San Francisco 49ers for opportunities elsewhere. He will serve as the New Orleans Saints' offensive coordinator after his stint as the 49ers' offensive passing game specialist. Kubiak only spent one season with the 49ers. Of course, it's unsurprising to see the considerable interest in head coach Kyle Shanahan's coaching staff, given the success many of his proteges have found across the league. Upon his departure, Kubiak had nothing but praise for his time working under Shanahan. "Just being here a year, my experience is, Kyle really lets you into his brain in his game plan meetings," Kubiak
