Jan 7, 2016 at 8:32 PM--


According to Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area, the San Francisco 49ers have met with former Philadelphia Eagles head coach Chip Kelly for the vacant head coaching job.


The team has also met with Buffalo Bills assistant head coach and running backs coach Anthony Lynn.


Saints head coach Sean Payton, who was reportedly a target of the 49ers, has decided to remain in New Orleans.

The team is also expected to pursue Cincinnati Bengals offensive coordinator Hue Jackson and has reportedly been having discussions with former Denver Broncos and Washington Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan.

Jackson and the Bengals are currently in the playoffs.

The 49ers also requested to interview Tampa Bay Buccaneers offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter. However, the Buccaneers have not yet granted that request and Koetter is expected to be a candidate for their own head coaching vacancy.

Following Sunday's season finale victory over the St. Louis Rams, then 49ers head coach Jim Tomsula was fired.

When it came time for the New York Jets head coach to speak to his team following an early offseason practice, Robert Saleh stood there behind his players, waiting to hear what would be said. Then he remembered ... "Oh shoot, that's me," Saleh said to himself. The story is similar to San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan nearly forgetting to name team captains before his first preseason game. "Honestly, if someone hadn't asked me, I probably would have been sitting there looking out at the coin toss and wondering why no one was out there," Shanahan said on



Fred Warner feels the 49ers have done a great job informing players about the vaccine

The NFL reportedly informed teams that it would not extend the 18-week season to accommodate a COVID-19 outbreak among unvaccinated players. Last year, there were multiple postponements as the league navigated through the bizarre season amid a pandemic. There will be no rescheduling of games in 2021. The league hopes players will take it upon themselves to get vaccinated and protect themselves and their families as training camps get set to kick off. Should there be an outbreak, the impacted club or clubs could be forced to forfeit, accruing a defeat, and not being paid for the lost game. A team with an outbreak could also be responsible for

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle spoke with Cam Inman of Bay Area News Group this week. In what was probably some prep-work for the likely-to-be top discussion topic once training camp kicks off next week, the All-Pro player was asked about the upcoming training camp quarterback battle ... which may or may not be an actual battle. Players may be tired of discussing Jimmy Garoppolo's job. It has been a big storyline the past two offseasons. Last year, the focus was around the 49ers possibly replacing their quarterback, who had just helped guide the team to a Super Bowl, with future Hall of Famer Tom



2019 49ers vs. 2021 49ers, Part 1 (Offense)

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Lately I have listened to some podcasts and read some tweets comparing the current San Francisco 49ers team (2021) to the 2019 team that fell just short of winning the Super Bowl. I find the comparison interesting. And since many people quickly assume the 2021 49ers are not as good as the 2019 team, I wanted to take a look for myself. So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.
