The San Francisco 49ers have started their 2018 training camp. Tickets went on sale for fans to go and watch them live, but what if you live far away? What if you just can't get there but still want to be part of the action? Well you can pull out your phone (or any other device), open up your favorite social media app and within seconds you can have a live look at 49ers training camp. Just like that, you're there.

In today's world in which information is so easily obtainable, we never stop to think about what it takes to make that information easy to obtain.

Vice President & Executive Producer of 49ers studios and marketing Robert Alberino Jr. was hired by the 49ers in 2013 and has worked within the NFL since 1995, when he got his start working with legendary filmmaker Steve Sabol. Alberino Jr. is the man who makes it all happen. He oversees all creative design regarding the team, stadium, social media and television content. If you are reading or watching anything from the 49ers, chances are he was behind the creation of it in some form.

I recently had the pleasure of sitting down and talking with him about what goes into providing quality 49ers content that is different than the 31 other teams in the NFL and why it's so important to him and his staff that the team can reach the fans in as many ways as possible. He provided me with a lot of information that often gets thought about but never talked about. We as fans will sometimes take for granted how easy it is to feel like you're a small part of the 49ers with all of the ways to watch and connect with the team. But never do we actually think about the hard work and determination behind the scenes that makes it all possible.

Robert Alberino Jr. let me in for just a small taste of what it takes and you can listen below.

To Robert and the San Francisco 49ers, thank you for all that you do.

Greg Cosell has thoughts on why the 49ers ran Trey Lance so often in his first start

By David Bonilla
Oct 14

San Francisco 49ers players aren't around their Santa Clara headquarters right now because the team is on its bye week. However, they will return next week to begin preparations for the Indianapolis Colts. The off time is a good opportunity to listen to analysts like Greg Cosell, who joined KNBR today and shared his thoughts on rookie quarterback Trey Lance's first start this past weekend, a 17-10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. What did the respected long-time analyst think of the 21-year-old's starting debut? Lance ran the football 16 times for 89 yards, which was a bit unexpected considering head coach Kyle Shanahan had said that fans could expect the rookie looking more like a quarterback and less like a running back in the game,



49ers sign CB Davontae Harris to the practice squad

On Tuesday, the San Francisco 49ers waived cornerback Davontae Harris, a day after activating the defender from injured reserve. Today, the team announced that it signed Harris to the practice squad. San Francisco initially claimed Harris (5-11, 200) off waivers from the Baltimore Ravens on August 17. He landed on injured reserve on September 1 due to a hamstring injury. The 26-year-old cornerback has recorded 50 tackles, four passes defensed, and a forced fumble through his three NFL seasons. In addition to the 49ers and Ravens (2020), the fourth-year player spent time with the Cincinnati Bengals, the team that made him a fifth-round draft pick out of Illinois State in 2018, and the Denver Broncos



Analyzing 49ers QB Trey Lance's rookie season so far

When the 49ers drafted Trey Lance at No. 3 overall, I thought that he was specifically for 2022, because I felt the inconsistencies with his accuracy in college just needed to be fixed, similar to Josh Allen when he came out of the draft. Well, the inevitable happened, as Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a calf strain in San Francisco's Week 4 loss to Seattle, paving the way for Lance to make his first career start. Up to now, Lance is 25-of-48 for 354 yards, with three touchdowns, and an interception through the air, while also rushing 27 times for 133 yards and a touchdown. So, where does that place Lance? Well, in the limited sample size, Lance has primarily been what was expected, and then some. Coming out of college, Lance was a player



Better Rivals: DeMeco Ryans and the 49ers defense is doing a phenomenal job

By Marc Adams

If defense still wins championships, fans of the San Francisco 49ers must have been teeming with anxiety over the thought of having to rely on the defense, as they have been able to, in recent years. It has stressed me out. But you can rest easy, San Francisco fans, the tide may be turning. Through the first four games of the season, the 49ers defense looked a little Jekyll and Hyde. There were moments in each of those games where the defense looked like the dominant unit we have grown accustomed to seeing. But there were also moments in which they looked lost (see Rodgers, Aaron). The game against Green Bay was the low point, letting the Packers kick a game-winning field goal, even though they had no timeouts and only 37 seconds left. If the first four
