49ERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

Almost Four Years Later, Jim Harbaugh’s 49ers Back to Square One

When the San Francisco 49ers hosted the Seattle Seahawks in the season opener back in 2011, expectations were muted. This was a team that had not finished over .500 in eight seasons and was being led by a first-year head coach who didn’t even have a full offseason to implement his scheme due to the labor issues surrounding the NFL. That very first game came at home against a Seahawks...

San Francisco 49ers Escape with 17-13 Win over Washington

The San Francisco 49ers did just enough. “Guys did what they needed to do when they needed to do it,” said head coach Jim Harbaugh after his team escaped with a 17-13 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday afternoon at Levi’s Stadium. “Good teams win those kinds of games. I’m proud of our guys. By any means necessary.” The 49ers (7-4) jumped out to a 7-0 advantage...

Aaron Lynch destroys Robert Griffin III, keeps ball as souvenir (video)

It wasn’t a banner day for Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III, as the San Francisco 49ers defense gave him fits. RGIII completed only 11 of 19 passes for 106 yards. He was a complete non-factor throughout the game. The 49ers pass rush, however, was a force to be reckoned with. They sacked RGIII five times. And the Redskins QB will certainly be feeling the hit that rookie...

Anquan Boldin withstands helmet-to-helmet hit from Ryan Clark

Watch and listen to this hit by Washington Redskins safety Ryan Clark on San Francisco 49ers Anquan Boldin… Colin Kaepernick fired a line drive pass to Boldin, as Clark lunged forward for the bang-bang hit. The helmets colliding made a thudding sound. It was a hit that would take down the strongest of men, just not Boldin. #459473646 / gettyimages.com The 49ers receiver...

Michael Crabtree Makes Ridiculous Sideline Catch

Michael Crabtree snagged this pass from Colin Kaepernick to set up a 49ers field goal right before halftime. Oddly, the play wasn’t reviewed to see if Crabtree maintained control of the ball, which I’m fine with, because clearly no one really knows what is and what isn’t a catch in today’s NFL.

Bad start leads to Redskins trailing 49ers early

    #459466852 / gettyimages.com     After a tumultuous week leading into Sunday’s game the Washington Redskins needed a fast start. Unfortunately, they did not get it, as the San Francisco 49ers to control of the game from essentially the opening start. Robert Griffin III was sacked on the second play from the line of scrimmage, as 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith...

Quinton Dial quietly making a lot of noise on defensive line

San Francisco 49ers nose tackle Quinton Dial should play a substantial role for the team in the middle of the defense going forward despite the eventual return of starting NT Glenn Dorsey (biceps). Dorsey could also return this week but Dial has made enough noise to gain more playing time. A fifth-round draft pick in 2013, he is expected to play a major role for the team...

Jim Harbaugh compares Vernon Davis to an olive jar

There’s coach speak, and there’s Jim Harbaugh speak. The latter came out in reference to struggling 49ers tight end Vernon Davis, who, apparently, is comparable to a jar of olives. “I just feel like he’s ready to break out,” Harbaugh said of Davis, via Profootballtalk.com. “I really do. You use the old olive jar analogy.  The olives are packed in there real tight and...

San Francisco 49ers fans would be wise to monitor these wild Week 12 bold predictions

Anyone can pick games. Whether selecting winners or making guesses against the spread, it’s essentially an exercise in flipping a coin. But providing some specifics about what’s going to happen in a game, detailing how things are going to play out, takes some thought, imagination and guts. And it actually provides some insight into what’s going to transpire on Sunday and Monday...

Moss is in town to cover the Patriots’ game Sunday against the Detroit Lions. “When I came from...

San Francisco 49ers would fire Jim Harbaugh if the season ended today

If the NFL season ended right now, with most teams having played 10 games, the playoff match-ups would be interesting. Some of the usual suspects (New England and Denver) would be taking part, while some preseason contenders (Seattle and San Francisco) would be on the outside looking in. Some surprise teams (Detroit and Kansas City) would be playing, while others (Miami and Buffalo...

NFL Week 11 Recap and Week 12 Picks

I’m fairly certain that the one thing I find absolutely infuriating in sports is when athletes quit. This past weekend we had 3 examples of football players quitting within 2 days of each other. 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks started the theme on Sunday when he took himself out of the 49ers game due to what he felt was inadequate playing time.

The San Francisco 49ers are probably the best under-performing team in the league right now. Good thing for fans of the 49ers is that there is plenty of time left in the season for them to get it together and get positioned for another post season run. What they need is to be sparked. They need something to get excited about; something that reminds them why they love playing football...

Michael Crabtree unhappy with role in 49ers offense

After a 2012 season in which Michael Crabtree caught 85 balls for 1,105 yards and nine touchdowns, many expected the former first-round pick to emerge as one of the best wide receivers in the NFL. Instead, a torn Achilles cost Crabtree most of last season. And this year, the 27-year-old doesn’t seem too pleased with...Read More

Aldon Smith will pay 49ers to play this season

When suspended San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith returns to action next week against the New York Giants, he will reportedly do so without getting paid a penny. In fact, Smith will owe the 49ers money when the season concludes. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Smith’s salary will be about $1.1 million ($525,000 after taxes). That $525,000 won’t be enough to cover...
