Getting to the bottom of the 49ers’ play clock problem

There isn’t a player on the 49ers facing more scrutiny than Colin Kaepernick. It may not be fair, but such is the byproduct of a decision as radical as Jim

Numbers don’t lie: Kaepernick already Smith’s equal

Last time I waded into Colin Kaepernick/Alex Smith infested waters, I was accused of “cherry-picking” certain statistics to prove my point. And so, what I’m presenting to you is every

How can the 49ers stop Wes Welker?

It’s every 49ers fan’s worst nightmare on Sunday* night: Wes Welker spends the entire game Amendoling out punishment in the form of receptions, yards after the catch, and first downs

Michael Crabtree on playing with Colin Kaepernick: “The sky’s the limit for us”

All-22: Where is Vernon Davis?

Vernon Davis has been shackled up ever since “somebody took the handcuffs off” him against the Bears. He caught six passes for 83 yards and a touchdown in that game, but

Harbaugh unhappy with Jacobs, but is he angry enough to release him? (Actually, they suspended him)

Update No. 2 from Matt Barrows – Brandon Jacobs was suspended, not released, which means he cannot join another NFL team this season: Update from Kyle Bonagura (sounds like Brandon

49ers’ running game shines in win over Dolphins

Jim Harbaugh loves to tell us (the media, fans, and probably his own players when no one else is around) to “assume nothing.” So it almost makes sense that, with

Aldon Smith sets 49ers’ single-season sack record; media getting restless

Early in the game, the Dolphins used spread formations to force the 49ers to drop Aldon Smith back into coverage. But it was only a matter of time before Smith

Super Bowl XIX

49ers vs. Dolphins throughout history (translation: an excuse to write about Super Bowl XIX)

As one would expect, the Miami Dolphins had their way with the San Francisco 49ers in the early stages. The Dolphins were a dominant team from the moment Don Shula

Aldon Smith competes with Von Miller; you compete for free Amici’s pizza

Von Miller displayed his dominance to the Oakland Raiders and a nationwide audience last night. Again. This has been a habit of sorts for Miller, who effectively crushed the Raiders’

Another difference between Peyton Manning and Alex Smith (Non-expert NFL Picks, Week 14)

Remember when I used to writes those posts that compared Alex Smith and Peyton Manning? That was cute, I know. A real valuable use of time. Luckily for you, I’ve

Losing to the team who had the second worst record in the NFL a year ago causes people to get antsy. That’s when blaming occurs, and that leads to observers

49ers’ QB controversy forces fans to pick sides

49ers’ offensive line also to blame in loss to Rams

Several people shouldered blame following the 49ers’ loss to the Rams this Sunday. David Akers, Colin Kaepernick and Greg Roman headlined the list of scapegoats, and to a certain extent

Colin Kaepernick’s hand cools off as 49ers lose in OT

Before the game, Jim Harbaugh got all shoulder-slappy intense with Colin Kaepernick, who had trouble keeping a straight face. After the San Francisco 49ers lost 16-13 in overtime to the

Alex Smith

Smith was demoted for his play, not his concussion

There is no denying that Alex Smith has played well. He ranks in the top three in yards-per-attempt, completion percentage, and accuracy percentage (completions minus drops and throw aways). He’s
