49ers surprises, Part II: the disappointments

Earlier this week we took a look at “six” 49ers who’ve played surprisingly well through the season’s first seven games. Now it’s time to look at some of the players who

Kaplan: Prosecutors not likely to charge 49ers DT Ray McDonald with domestic violence

Remember the Ray McDonald case? It’s probably going away. Sources have told South Bay court reporter Tracey Kaplan of the Bay Area News Group that Santa Clara County prosecutors are

49ers surprises, Part I: players who’ve exceeded expectations

It seems like the bulk of the coverage about the 49ers up to this point has centered on who isn’t on the field (I’m guilty of this as well). But

Did the 49ers hold back against the Broncos?

#49ers pass def. Vs #Broncos painfully basic and easy to read. Like 1st day of training camp stuff for P. Manning to figure out. #nochance — Louis Riddick (@LRiddickESPN) October

49ers could be a brand new bunch after the bye … especially if NFL reinstates Aldon Smith early

I could write 500 words just to hyperlink all the reports that Aldon Smith has a good shot at getting a game or two knocked off his nine-game suspension. If

What’s up with Michael Crabtree?

Generally headlines in the form of a question are worded that way to entice the reader. But I’m at a loss. I don’t know why Michael Crabtree’s numbers are roughly the

Broncos rout 49ers, who keep losing starters to injury

The only way this one had a chance of being close was if two things happened — 1) the Broncos overlooked the 49ers and 2) Ed Donatell’s overachieving secondary somehow

Trouble in paradise: Seahawks deal Harvin to Jets for draft pick

The Seahawks traded Percy Harvin to the Jets today for a conditional draft pick. This was a stunning move, since midseason trades are rare in the NFL — especially for

Two reasons why 49ers were justifiably stubborn about using natural grass at Levi’s Stadium

When the concerns about the grass at Levi’s Stadium reached a fevered … pitch (sorry), a lot of fans and observers asked two questions. Why are they fielding so many events that

What language rule did Colin Kaepernick break against the Bears? A few ideas …

Colin Kaepernick is a difficult quarterback to classify — is he a running quarterback with a rocket arm, or a strong-armed passer who’s fleet of foot? He’s also a difficult

Next men up: four 49ers who could be called on in Denver

Jeff Fisher and Gregg Williams shouldn’t be allowed to work together. The dirtiness of Fisher’s teams, combined with Williams’ known bounty history, should make such an arrangement illegal in the

Ahmad Brooks wasn’t all that familiar with Austin Davis … even after playing against him

Ahmad Brooks knew where to find the Rams quarterback throughout most of the game, as he came through with two of the 49ers’ five sacks in their 31-17 victory in St.

49ers take first quarter off, destroy Rams anyway

The 49ers are capable of running effectively, moving the ball through the air, and throttling opposing offenses. They checked the boxes next to the latter two areas in a 31-17

Seahawks “dynasty” still a work in progress

What every pundit out there picking “not Seattle” to win the Super Bowl fails to realize is that this team is full of sharks that have now tasted blood. One

More evidence that Perrish Cox is on the outside to stay

The 49ers are currently the No. 2 defense in the league in total yards allowed, and they’re allowing the fourth-lowest number of passing yards per game (205.6) and the third-lowest

49ers OC Greg Roman: field goals are not evil

The 49ers are the field goal kickingest team in the NFL, and it’s been that way since Jim Harbaugh and Greg Roman took over the team’s offense. Since 2011, the

Why the 49ers might consider sitting Culliver when Brock returns

Tramaine Brock probably won’t return until after the 49ers’ bye week (according to Matt Maiocco, who uses sound logic). There’s no reason to rush him back at this point, particularly

It’s time to do something about violent 49ers fans

We’re less than halfway through the season, and already two videos have hit YouTube containing extraordinarily violent scenes at football stadiums. One took place at University of Phoenix Stadium in

Best part about yesterday’s game: no more “should’ve kept Alex” talk

I’m a terrible multitasker, and as such it’s difficult to focus on more than one “hot take” discussion topic at once. So with all the discussion over whether Jim Harbaugh is
