Team could trade with the Raiders – if Young is available

Matt Maiocco, of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat, reports San Francisco 49ers' vice president of player personnel Scot McCloughan is not ruling out the possibility that the 49ers and Oakland Raiders could end up speaking during the NFL Draft Saturday, April 29, especially if Texas QB Vince Young is still available when the 49ers pick at No. 6. "If he does fall to six, we're going to field some calls, and they (the Raiders) are going to know that," McCloughan said. "If that's the guy they've pinpointed, they're not going to want to miss out on him." The Raiders would likely have to part with their first- and fourth-round picks (No. 101 overall) to get the No. 6.

Steve Young says 49ers' late game fade in Detroit may be "a sign of immaturity"

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, and current ESPN analyst, Steve Young spoke on KNBR Radio on Wednesday, as he does each week during the NFL season. Among the other things he discussed on the Tolbert, Krueger and Brooks Show, which included labeling the 49ers quarterback situation as "fraught with terror," considering how it plays out, was how the 49ers finished the game against the Detroit Lions last Sunday. Specifically, how they went from having such a huge lead to almost losing that lead. Much has been discussed on this topic already, and debates have been held around the question of whether coach



Steve Young calls the 49ers QB situation 'fraught with terror'

The San Francisco 49ers are no strangers to quarterback controversies. There was a big one in the late 1980s that involved a couple of future Hall of Famers. That the team was able to replace one Hall of Fame quarterback, Joe Montana, with another, Steve Young, is remarkable. It set an extremely high standard in San Francisco. Then there was the blistering hot quarterback controversy between Alex Smith and David...wait...never mind. Montana and Young were great quarterbacks who coach Bill Walsh used to push each other. Montana made Young better. And Young certainly made Montana



Jimmy Garoppolo expects 49ers' young RBs to fill void left by Raheem Mostert injury

Garoppolo is optimistic the 49ers' inexperienced backfield is talented enough to shoulder the load in 2021. On Wednesday, the San Francisco 49ers held a press conference with reporters at the team's temporary home for the week -- The Greenbrier in White Sulphur Springs, WV, close to the Virginia border. Similar to years past, the 49ers chose to remain on the East Coast during a week bookended by a pair of 10:00 a.m. PT away games. Staying in the Eastern Time Zone will save the Niners roughly 4,000 miles of extra flight time and two additional disruptions to the circadian rhythm of the team. The Greenbrier is a common venue for NFL teams to use for training purposes; both the Houston Texans and the New Orleans Saints made the facility their home during multiple



Win over Eagles wasn't always pretty, but could it help propel the 49ers to lofty heights?

There will be more than enough things for the San Francisco 49ers to dissect and criticize once they get a chance to review the film of their 17-11 road win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, but it was clear after the game that they couldn't have been happier about the fact they were able to come away from the East Coast with a victory. And even though the 49ers still have their share of question marks after a 2-0 start to the season, it seems like they believe the win over the Eagles might wind up being the type of spark they need to have a highly successful run the rest of the way. The 49ers were far from being at their best against the Eagles on Sunday, but they delivered key plays on offense, defense and special teams when it mattered most to put
