49ers will not break Branch’s fall

Apr 20, 2007 at 7:07 AM--


According to Don Banks of SI.com, the 49ers will not break Michigan DT Alan Branch's fall should he last past the top 10.

From SI.com:
And just FYI, if Branch does indeed last past the top 10, my sources say the No. 11 49ers will not break his fall, even though they could use a defensive tackle. Nebraska defensive end Adam Carriker continues to look like a good bet in San Francisco.

SI.com also states, "Despite his physical talent, some scouts question Michigan defensive tackle Alan Branch's intensity."

49ers OC Mike McDaniel focused on beating the Cowboys, not head coaching jobs

The Miami Dolphins requested to interview San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel for their head coaching vacancy. Obviously, that's a big opportunity for the 38-year-old coach in his first season as an offensive coordinator. However, the valuable knowledge he has learned from head coach Kyle Shanahan could soon make him a hot commodity. McDaniel doesn't have time to think about any of that right now, though. Instead, he's focused on Sunday's road playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys. After Thursday's practice, the coordinator was asked about juggling preparing for the game and thinking about the head coaching opportunity, and his response should set 49ers fans' minds at ease. "Yeah, it has [come to my attention], but as far as juggling, there



Peter King feels 49ers should keep Jimmy Garoppolo, but first-rounder in trade not unthinkable

The San Francisco 49ers are in the middle of a playoff run, their second in three seasons. They hope to extend their season beyond Saturday's Divisional Round playoff game against the Green Bay Packers. Still, even now, it's difficult not to wonder about the Niners' looming offseason quarterback decision. For many, there is no choice. The 49ers will have to move on from Jimmy Garoppolo, transitioning to the team's No. 3 overall pick, Trey Lance. Obviously, San Francisco would like to get something in return for Garoppolo, if that happens. Of course, Peter King of NBC Sports isn't so sure parting with Garoppolo is the best option. "I've had a two-fold opinion about Garoppolo," King told 95.7 The Game's Damon Bruce and Ray Ratto on Tuesday. "Number



DE Charles Omenihu praises 49ers organization after trade from Texans: 'It's not a circus show here'

It seems as if defensive end Charles Omenihu couldn't be happier about his change of scenery from the Houston Texans to the San Francisco 49ers. The 49ers acquired the 24-year-old Omenihu from the Texans in exchange for a sixth-round pick in the 2023 NFL Draft just before the league's trade deadline on November 2. Omenihu played two-and-a-half seasons for the Texans after being selected in Round 5 of the 2019 NFL Draft out of the University of Texas, totaling seven sacks and 24 quarterback hits in 35 games (seven starts). He's been playing in mostly a rotational role since joining the 49ers but had his most impactful game since the trade in last Sunday's Wild Card win over the Dallas Cowboys, posting 1.5 sacks, three quarterback hits and a forced fumble. Omenihu



Giants reportedly hiring Bills' Joe Schoen, not 49ers' Adam Peters, as next GM

It looks like the San Francisco 49ers might be able to hold onto assistant general manager Adam Peters for a little longer. He was a finalist in the New York Giants' hunt for a new general manager, and it looks like the NFC East team is going in a different direction. The Giants are reportedly hiring Buffalo Bills assistant general manager Joe Schoen to be their next general manager, per NFL Media's Ian Rapoport and Mike Garafolo. Peters interviews twice for the job—once on Monday and again on
