Three very vague tweets spark some confusion among 49ers fans

Sep 4, 2015 at 2:35 PM--


Three bizarre tweets today are sparking some confusion among some San Francisco 49ers fans. No one is really sure what sparked the tweets or why the authors posted them in the first place.

The first was from earlier today by ESPN's Jim Trotter and was posted about an hour after Darnell Dockett's release.


The second came later in the day and was by 49ers WR Torrey Smith.


The third was by former NFL scout and contributor to CSN Bay Area, John Middlekauff.


What does it mean? No one seems to know. How does Smith's comment fit into it -- if at all. Was Smith posting about something personal or team related? He followed his tweet with two more posts about interviewing for jobs out of college ... so ... maybe not. Are Trotter and Middlekauff referring to the team's crazy offseason or some developing story? Are the players upset about the recent release of a player? Is a surprise roster move in the works? Is there some negativity in the locker room? Are Jed York and Jim Harbaugh now best buds? What?!!!

There were some somewhat surprising cuts today, but nothing totally shocking or signaling self-destruction. That makes the tweets even more bizarre.

It may be nothing. Hopefully it is nothing. We shall see.

Update:


Whew. We do now. Um ... Torrey ... any idea what Trotter is talking about?

49ers-Cowboys: Kyle Shanahan brings up old rivalry to give players a spark

By Kirk Larrabee
Jan 16

Most of the players on the current San Francisco 49ers roster are too young to remember when their team had a heated and historic rivalry with the Dallas Cowboys, but 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan made sure they were aware of it before the two teams faced off in the Wild Card playoff round on Sunday. The 49ers and Cowboys met seven times in the postseason over the course of the 1970s, 1980s, and 1990s, with one of those meetings (the 1981 NFC Championship Game) featuring the most memorable play in 49ers history (Dwight Clark's game-winning touchdown catch to help send the 49ers to their first Super Bowl). The rivalry peaked in the 90s, when the teams met in the NFC Championship game for three consecutive seasons, with the winner of each game going on to win the Super Bowl.



49ers' Kyle Shanahan on talented Cowboys: "It's very obvious why they're in this position"

After clinching a playoff berth against a star-studded Los Angeles Rams team in the final minutes of Sunday's thrilling 27-24 game, it seems like the Niners have a stronger opponent ahead of them: the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys had their best season, finishing 12-5 and making the playoffs as the third seed in the NFC with the help of a very talented roster and experienced coaching staff. 49ers Head Coach Kyle Shanahan knows he'll have his hands full in this matchup. "I mean you can see why [the Cowboys] are in this position. I mean just offensively, defensively, special teams; I mean their numbers are you know off the charts on both sides in both phases; they've got very good talent they've got very good schemes." Shanahan has high praise for the always



With some outside help from a former 49ers nemesis, Robbie Gould kicks his team into NFC Championship Game

By Kirk Larrabee

Had it not been for a couple of assists from the outside, it's possible that San Francisco 49ers kicker Robbie Gould might not have been able to hit the game-winning kick that sent his team into the NFC Championship. Gould accounted for seven points (two field goals, one extra point) in the 49ers' 13-10 win over the Green Bay Packers in Saturday night's Divisional Playoff game, with his biggest moment coming on a 45-yard field goal through wintery conditions as time expired to send the 49ers home victorious. Credit Gould with making the kick in such conditions, but he also asked for some help before the game that wound up making a difference in the end. In preparation for what he knew would be a difficult weather environment at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Gould
