49ERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Fantasy Football: Run and Hyde from Niners Running Back

In general, the NFL combine is an overhyped and overrated event that football fans, myself included, use to fill that gaping football void in our souls during the offseason.

San Francisco 49ers Want Defensive Lineman Quinton Dial to Play More Outside?

When it comes to the defensive line teams typically like to see the bigger guys inside stuffing the run and the smaller, quicker guys on the outside so they can use their speed to get around the end and rush the quarterback. Yeah, it is nice if you have a big guy that is actually pretty quick and can line up on the outside, but finding one of those is easier said than done.49ers...

San Francisco 49ers: no margin for error

Compared with recent times, the San Francisco 49ers have experienced an unfamiliar offseason. In the Jim Harbaugh era, San Francisco was championship contenders with a Super Bowl or bust mentality.

What Anthony Davis’ retirement means for San Francisco 49ers, NFL

49ers implosion will invevitably extend home Super Bowl drought
