    The birth of this beautiful baseball park on the San Francisco waterfront in 2000, AT&T Park (first Pac Bell Park then SBC Park), also signified the end of Candlestick Park.  The views are breathtaking from any seat in this ballpark that sports both an old time feel (think Camden Yards) and modern amenities. At AT&T Park, San Franciscans have grown to expect post-season dominance and ticker tape parades, with Bruce Bochy’s Giants having won the World Series three times in the past five years. I was lucky enough to be working on the parade route when it went down Montgomery Street…

The team sent him home Thursday morning from Colorado, where they are holding joint practices with the Broncos before playing a preseason game against Denver on Saturday night.

    After two weeks of preseason games, football fans are finally getting a glimpse of their starting teams play sustained football. The first couple games of the preseason are warm-ups, where starting players play one or two drives until they ride the bench. Also, playbooks are opened up a little wider by the coaches as they try new plays for the upcoming year. It’s week three for the San Francisco 49ers and they head to Denver to face Peyton Manning and the Broncos Saturday night. With many position battles and players fighting for roster spots, there are going to be plenty of story lines…

  • Taking a Look at the 49ers Option Run on Film

    28 Aug 2015 | 2:27 pm
    View image | gettyimages.com When Colin Kaepernick first rose as a prominent quarterback, the 49ers adapted their offense to allow for more read option plays.  They found ways to utilize the dual-threat skills Kaepernick has in his arsenal.  These were Kaepernick’s best games, as he was able to showcase his arm strength, while also keeping defenders guessing, as they didn’t know whether or not Kaepernick would hand the ball off, keep the ball and run for himself, or look for a running back downfield. With Jim Tomsula taking over as the 49ers new head coach, I think the 49ers may look to…
  • Fran Tarkenton: Only Colin Kaepernick can save Kaepernick

    28 Aug 2015 | 11:32 am
    Colin Kaepernick worked out with Super Bowl-champion gunslinger Kurt Warner during the offseason, but Fran Tarketon, a Hall of Famer, appears to question the value of the summer session. In an interview on KNBR, Tarkenton said it doesn’t matter how many times the San Francisco 49ers quarterback trains with Warner or a player of his caliber, because Kaepernick is the only one who can change the course of his career. Fran Tarkenton: "I don't care how many Kurt Warner's they bring in, the only guy that is going to turn around Kaepernick is Kaepernick." — KNBR (@KNBR) August 28, 2015…

    28 Aug 2015 | 9:34 am
    It’s no secret the San Francisco 49ers are dealing with one of the worst stretches of off-field problems in recent memory. Following the latest incident involving Ahmad Brooks, former 49ers cornerback Eric Davis, now with NFL Network, revealed Jim Harbaugh’s “coddling” approach to off-field issues could have been a big contributor to the franchise’s current issues. Davis spoke on this topic on Friday morning, and here is the link to the NFL.com video. When asked if he had ever seen anything like what has happened to the 49ers, Davis replied: “No, I haven’t seen anything like…

    27 Aug 2015 | 9:29 pm
    After Peter King reported that NaVorro Bowman needs two hours to get his surgically repaired knee ready for action, the San Francisco 49ers linebacker felt the need to set the record straight. After reading King’s column, many might have wondered if Bowman might be coming back too soon—a notion he utterly rejects. “I’m just a perfectionist,” Bowman said (h/t Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area). “I like to warm up my leg as much as possible and to go out there and have a perfect practice. If it takes three hours, I’ll take three hours. Some guys take a lot of things out of context. Me…

    John Elway is a big fan of Colin Kaepernick. The Denver Broncos and San Francisco 49ers held their final joint practice on Thursday, after which Elway addressed the media. One of the questions shot at the Hall of Famer was what he thinks about quarterback Kaepernick (via the team’s official website): “I’ve always liked Colin,” said Elway. ”I think he’s very athletic, and he’s a guy that can make a lot of big plays. He’s doing more within the pocket, which I think will continue to help him. He’s a great athlete, and he’s got that big-play ability to avoid things and make…
