Niners may have trouble extending Gore’s contract

Jan 22, 2007 at 4:43 PM--


According to ProFootballWeekly, the 49ers may have a problem getting Gore to sign a new contract.

From ProFootballWeekly:
The Niners realize it would behoove them to give ace RB Frank Gore a healthy raise before his contract expires after the 2007 season. However, the way we hear it, negotiations with Gore’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, will hardly be cut and dried, since, regardless of Gore’s great success, they still consider him a 24-year-old running back in a 30-year-old’s body. Another valued young Niner with the same contract situation as Gore, starting ORG Justin Smiley, is a good bet to be re-signed first.

Why Kyle Shanahan feels the 2021 49ers O-line may be his best yet

The offensive line for the San Francisco 49ers hasn't been a huge focus for the team since Kyle Shanahan arrived as the head coach in 2017. In fact, the team has only drafted two offensive lineman within the first four rounds of the draft over the past five years: RT Mike McGlinchey in 2018 and G Aaron Banks this year in the second round. However, the team has made significant strides in other moves to improve the offensive line, trading a third and a fifth round pick for star LT Trent Williams during last year's draft before signing him to an extension this offseason, and picking up Alex Mack as the starting center this offseason as well. With Shanahan's run/play-action oriented offense, a strong offensive line is necessary to work both the edges



Balancing Garoppolo and Lance may be a challenge for the 49ers

On March 26, 2021, the 49ers traded three first-round picks to the Miami Dolphins to move up to the third-overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. Most knew trading to that spot meant the 49ers would be taking a quarterback. Since that point, the talk and debate over 49ers' quarterbacks has been constant. That increased even further after the 49ers did the expected and took a quarterback with the third-overall pick, Trey Lance. Fast forward to Week 1 of the regular season, and not much has changed. Jimmy Garoppolo will be returning as the starter, but there are indications that the 49ers may be implementing a two-quarterback system in some form, which is something you do not see very often in the NFL. There is the potential for both Garoppolo and Lance to

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



Joe Staley explains why conditioning changes may be reason behind 49ers' injury woes

By David Bonilla

Is recent history repeating itself? The San Francisco 49ers have already lost two starters for the season in cornerback Jason Verrett and running back Raheem Mostert. In addition, a report surfaced today that linebacker Dre Greenlaw will undergo core muscle surgery and miss six to eight weeks. The early losses have to remind players, coaches, and fans of the nightmare that was 2020 when the 49ers suffered through one of the most injury-plagued single seasons in two decades. Even in 2019, when San Francisco earned a trip to the Super Bowl, it had to endure several in-season injuries
