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

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

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

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

Jim Harbaugh and the 49ers: a love story

All’s well in the land of Harbaugh. In fact, love is in the air. Post by San Francisco 49ers. “I love coach Harbaugh,” said Colin Kaepernick after the 49ers’ 22-17

“It was a good day.” — 49ers out-FG Chiefs, seal win with Alex Smith INT

It wasn’t a masterpiece. The 49ers needed five field goals and a fake punt to beat the Chiefs, 22-17. But with what this team has dealt with, both on the

49ers get back to basics (Gore, defense) in trust-building win over Eagles

Frank Gore couldn’t even bring himself to talk to reporters after last week’s loss in Arizona. The entire team seemed to be pulling in a million different directions, blowing assignments

49ers unravel, no longer enjoy personnel and coaching advantages

The 49ers started off 1-2 last year, too. They won 13 of their next 15, and the losses came by a combined total of four points against teams that would eventually make

Alex Boone tells NFL to let players play: “We’re not going to be able to walk 15 years down the road. But it’s fine.”

San Francisco 49ers right guard Alex Boone ended his weekly segment with 95.7 The Game’s Damon Bruce with a long, spirited rant about the current state of officiating and the NFL

Ugly game, ugly loss: Bears score 21 fourth quarter points to ruin Levi’s Stadium debut for 49ers

This wasn’t a night when the 49ers wanted to see history repeat itself. The stadium looked good, but the game was another story. The turf wasn’t a problem, but the flags

What pressure? Kaepernick does Superman impression in first post-extension start

With all the nonsense surrounding this team — the Aldon Smith suspension, the Ray McDonald non-suspension in the name of due process, the Levi’s Stadium grass — the biggest story

PFF grades look great for Kaepernick, Smith … not so much for Brooks, Wilhoite

The scores provided by Pro Football Focus are thoroughly done and very interesting. The whole shebang is also a paid service, so it doesn’t seem right to go through the entire 49ers roster

Seattle Seahawks first impressions (yeah, they’re still really good)

A ton of money was wagered on the Packers in the hours leading up, dropping the spread to 4/4.5, but Seattle ended up winning by 20. The Super Bowl hangover

49ers made some cuts, so here’s another roster projection

I wrote a final 53-man roster projection late last night, but forgot to publish and now it’s irrelevant because the 49ers made several cuts. I kept a lot of what I wrote,

Seven 49ers who could’ve performed better against the Chargers

It didn’t seem all that likely that the 49ers would win their third preseason game when the first quarter ended. The Chargers were up 7-0 and had a 111-22 edge in

“It was awesome. A lot better than Candlestick.” – the 49ers like Levi’s Stadium, despite turf troubles

The 49ers did a quick scoreboard tribute to Robin Williams before the national anthem. If his character in “Good Will Hunting” spoke to Levi’s Stadium after the new facility’s football

Jim Harbaugh getting impatient with backup quarterbacks

It seemed like a bad sign during pregame warmups that so many balls hit the turf on the 49ers side. Receivers were running outs, and the quarterbacks were throwing balls

49ers practice report (not that serious edition): Greg Roman shows off throwing mechanics in QB drill

The 49ers didn’t do a whole lot during their last practice in Santa Clara before boarding a flight to Baltimore. So instead of a standard report on today’s events, let’s
