AROUND THE WEB
When April 1st rolls around, you have to be extra careful of what ends up in the old inbox. Sometimes we aren’t sure if the tipster is serious, or if they really want us to fall for it. But we enjoyed this one that came via the San Francisco 49ers website, where they are touting a new line of clothing entitled the “Jim Harbaugh Collection.” Have you ever noticed that he wears...
According to Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle, running back Kendall Hunter and receiver Kyle Williams should be ready to go for training camp.
Both players season went up in smoke on the same play back in November. Hunter is a up and coming running back who will most likely get more playing time under incumbent Frank Gore.
Williams, largely known for his 2011 postseason...
According to Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle, 49ers’ running back Kendall Hunter is ahead of schedule with his rehab after tearing his Achilles last season. The good news is he’s expected to be ready for training camp.

During his time playing quarterback with the 49ers, Alex Smith always had somebody breathing down his neck. At various points, Smith was beaten out for the starting job by the likes of Tim Rattay, Shaun Hill and J.T. O’Sullivan, but the competition made him better and shaped him into a capable QB. But with Smith gone, who’ll do that for Colin Kaepernick while also giving the...
According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, the Browns have traded quarterback Colt McCoy to the San Francisco 49ers. The Browns have dealt QB Colt McCoy to the 49ers. Another QB on the move — Jason La Canfora (@JasonLaCanfora) April 1, 2013 I love this move. If anyone can help McCoy be successful, it’s 49ers’ head coach Jim Harbaugh. This also gives the Niners a viable...
DANGERS OF THE GAME
Michael Crabtree said in an interview that he temporarily lost vision after taking a hit during the Super Bowl against the Ravens.
The 49ers have one glaring need to fill in this year’s upcoming NFL draft and that is the safety position. With the departure of Dashon Goldson, who signed with Tampa Bay as a free agent, the 49ers currently have Donte Whitner who will hold down his starting spot and opposite him are a hodgepodge of names like Trenton Robinson, Darcel McBath, Craig Dahl and Michael Thomas.
