Heneghan not long for Niners?

Feb 17, 2007 at 9:45 AM--


ProFootballTalk.com had this to say about the 49ers' own Lal Heneghan:

The addition of Lal Heneghan to the San Francisco front office has not been regarded as, as we hear it, a successful move.

The opinion held by some is that Heneghan, a former employee of the NFL league office, brings too much of a league-office mentality to the operation (whatever that means), and that he is not a classic "football guy."

Heneghan's primary expertise is the salary cap, not the identification and/or evaluation of football talent.

He previously was the cap guy with the Browns, but was abruptly fired by former coach Butch Davis in 2004. Heneghan was hired by the 49ers in April 2006.

49ers set tone of dominance with long opening drive against Jaguars, even if it didn't end the way they wanted

As was the case against the Los Angeles Rams last week, the San Francisco 49ers sent a loud, and clear message right off the bat in their 30-10 win over the Jacksonville Jaguars on Sunday with a long opening drive that quickly established their dominance and set the tone for what would take place the rest of the game—even if what happened at the end of the drive felt somewhat disappointing. Whereas last week's opening drive in the 49ers' 31-10 win over the Rams came off a turnover and ended in a touchdown after lasting 18 plays, 93 yards, and eleven minutes and three seconds, this week's opening drive came after the opening kickoff and took up thirteen minutes and five seconds while spanning 20 plays and 87 yards before the 49ers took a 3-0 lead on a 20-yard Robbie

'This was never about this year': Rapoport says 49ers should not regret drafting Trey Lance over Mac Jones

By David Bonilla

Mac Jones is having an impressive rookie year. His New England Patriots have won four in a row and sit at 6-4. The rookie quarterback completed 82.6 percent of his passes and threw three touchdowns in a 45-7 rout of the Cleveland Browns over the weekend. Meanwhile, in Santa Clara, rookie Trey Lance, selected 12 spots ahead of Jones at No. 3 overall, hasn't received too many opportunities with the San Francisco 49ers. Of course, that was always the plan. Lance was drafted to eventually replace starter Jimmy Garoppolo, but use his rookie season to learn from the veteran quarterback and his coaches. Lance, after all, had limited experience at the collegiate level. Shanahan fell in love with Lance's potential. That's what made the 49ers trade to move up to select the
