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?

Believe it or not, Kyle Shanahan found some good from the 49ers' loss to the Dolphins

By David Bonilla

It may seem like there was nothing good to take away from last weekend's embarrassing 43-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins, but that's not how head coach Kyle Shanahan sees it. "There was so much stuff that we did bad that is fixable," Shanahan told NBC Sports Bay Area this week. "And surprisingly, there was a number of encouraging things. (I know) that would be hard to believe, and I know people don't totally want to hear that." An embarrassing defeat like that is challenging for any fan to overlook. This week has seemingly been about placing blame via social media. The 49ers, however, are moving forward. Shanahan didn't review much of that loss with his team this week. He left that to his assistant coaches. But there were encouraging things upon which the team can

Kerry Hyder has been a pleasant surprise on a San Francisco 49ers defensive line that has been decimated by injuries this season.

He owns a pass-rushing-productivity grade of 9.9, which ranks as the fourth-best among NFL edge rushers. The only edge defenders who have made more of an impact rushing quarterbacks are Aldon Smith of the Dallas Cowboys (10.7 grade), T.J.
