The 49ers-Seahawks game that could decide the NFC West is moving to prime time.
The NFL said Monday that San Francisco’s matchup with Seattle on Dec. 23 would be on NBC’s “Sunday Night Football.”
Starting in Week 11, the league’s flexible scheduling policy allows it to move a more appealing game to Sunday night. This is the first time this season a switch has been made. Read More
While their performance was neither pretty nor dominant, the 49ers maintained their streak of winning games following a loss by beating the Miami Dolphins 27-13 on Sunday at Candlestick Park.
San Francisco is now 6-0 in games following a loss under coach Jim Harbaugh, and Sunday was the first time the defense allowed a touchdown in those games. Read More
Frank Gore reached two milestones during the 49ers’ 27-13 win over the Miami Dolphins on Sunday, tying one franchise record and extending another.
Gore scored his 50th career rushing touchdown in the third quarter, tying Joe Perry and Roger Craig for the most in a 49ers uniform. Read More
What I’m about to address is a tad past its news cycle, but forgive me. More pressing issues have been at hand.
After all, I haven’t yet been ruled out as the 49ers’ starting quarterback, so I’ve been busy taking “first-team reps” with little Timmy, Johnny and Phil out on the asphalt of my cul-de-sac. Read More
As much entertainment as the 49ers’ second overtime game with the St. Louis Rams provided Sunday, the real fun starts this afternoon when coach Jim Harbaugh faces the media at his weekly press conference.
In recent weeks, Harbaugh’s pressers have produced more gems than a Bill Clinton deposition. How much yarn will he spin this week to defend Colin Kaepernick’s management of a game that Alex Smith would have clearly won? Read More
All aboard! Next stop, Crazy Town.
I’m your conductor, Jim Harbaugh, and all communication henceforth shall be liberally sprinkled with misdirection, outright evasion and, well, more than a little sheer lunacy.
Welcome to me. And get used to it, because quite frankly, I don’t give a damn what you think of me or the veracity of whatever might spill from my grill at any given moment. Read More
The backup quarterback always gets the most love from fans and it’s Colin Kaepernick’s turn now. But the way 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh has handled this situation will come back to bite him. Read More
Colin Kaepernick has earned himself a third straight start at quarterback for the 49ers.
Coach Jim Harbaugh made the announcement Wednesday that Kaepernick would go Sunday at St. Louis over Alex Smith after the second-year pro led the NFC West-leading Niners (8-2-1) to victories in the past two games, his first two NFL starts.
“The rationale is we have two quarterbacks that we feel great about as a starting quarterback,” Harbaugh said. Read More
When the 49ers’ official depth chart was released Tuesday, the starting quarterback was listed as “Alex Smith or Colin Kaepernick.”
That type of clarity is what we’ve come to expect from the 49ers since Smith went down with a concussion Nov. 11 and Kaepernick rode in on his white horse.
NaVorro Bowman had to tell someone about his hefty new contract before it became public. And there was pal Patrick Willis first thing Tuesday before they began their morning workout.
“He was excited as soon as I told him, when I wasn’t supposed to,” Bowman said about Willis, the godfather of Bowman’s twin girls born earlier this year. “I couldn’t keep it from him. I think he has lot to do with this, helping me out.” Read More
