Podcast: Breaking Down the 49ers’ Shutout Victory with Jason Aponte →

League interested in Cutler may benefit 49ers

Feb 17, 2006 at 7:35 AM--


According to Yahoo! Sports, a number of teams are interested in Vanderbilt quarterback Jay Cutler. One of these teams may be the Miami Dolphins (No. 16). Other teams that may be interested in picking up a quarterback in the first round include the New Orleans Saints (No. 2), Tennessee Titans (No. 3), New York Jets (No. 4), Oakland Raiders (No. 6 or 7 pending a coin flip on Friday, February 24th), Detroit Lions (No. 9) and Arizona Cardinals (No. 10).

How is this San Francisco 49ers (who will draft no. 6 or 7 pending a coin flip on Friday, February 24th) news? Many insiders believe that the key will be the 49ers and their pick since the team will be looking to trade down with a team coveting Cutler. Should the team end up with the 6th pick, they will have more options available to them since teams will likely want to jump ahead of Oakland and other teams looking to draft Cutler.

More on the front office search

According to Sportsline.com, the 49ers have interviewed 15 people for the team's open president position. While Seattle's Mike Reinfeldt was a leading candidate, he turned down the 49ers offer that reportedly would have paid him twice his salary. Others who have interviewed are Ray Anderson, the executive vice president of the Falcons; Bob Wallace, executive vice president of the Rams; and Bob Ferguson, former general manager of the Seahawks.

The team is looking for an individual with at least 20 years of experience in the league. It is also said that Nolan, who is pushing for the addition, has disagreed with director of football operations Paraag Marathe.

49ers Notebook: Shanahan happy with backup RBs in Mitchell's absence; 49ers overcome unusual week; Saints' impressive streak snapped

By Kirk Larrabee
Nov 27

It was a strange week for the San Francisco 49ers, who had to work through an unusual schedule that saw them arrive home from their Monday night game in Mexico City in the early morning hours on Tuesday, followed by Thanksgiving on Thursday. Still, they managed to work through it and prepare themselves to play against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, and in the end they came out on top with a 13-0 win. How did the 49ers work through that schedule? We'll look at that in this version of 49ers Notebook, along with some postgame thoughts from head coach Kyle Shanahan on the running back situation, a look at an impressive streak the 49ers snapped on Sunday, and much more. Let's get it started... (See also:



The 49ers' Defense is Becoming Elite Again: 5 Observations about Saints-49ers

By JD Salazar
Nov 28

This 2022 iteration of the 49ers is endlessly fascinating to watch. One of the best teams in football one week, getting humiliated the next. Back to the future, forward with the past. But as turbulent and ramshackle as it's been, the 49ers are morphing into a team ready to dominate in the playoffs, just as head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch have always believed. Here are 5 observations from yesterday's win over the Saints. 1. The Scoreless Streak Extends to 4… In the second half of the past 4 games, the 49ers haven't allowed a point. None. Zip. Zilch. Nada. The Rams, Chargers, Cardinals, and now Saints have all failed to crack the scoreboard once after halftime. While only this last contest has been a pure shutout, that mark remains



49ers' Psych Ward ready for the Cardinals' challenge

By Wayne P. Brown

This week against the Arizona Cardinals could be interesting for the San Francisco 49ers secondary. In the off-season, I remember creating a name for two of the 49ers' defensive backs—Jimmie Ward and Charvarius "Mooney" Ward. I called these two to the Psych Ward, and this week against the Arizona Cardinals, they may receive their first patient. Before the season began, safety Jimmie Ward went on the injured reserve due to a hamstring injury. Since his return, the nine-year veteran has been asked to play in the 49ers' nickel back position after starting outside corner Emmanuel Moseley was lost for the season to an ACL tear, and starting nickel corner Deommodore Lenoir was moved outside to replace Moseley. Ward has been targeted 16 times by opposing quarterbacks, allowing
