San Francisco 49ers' defensive tackle/tight end Demarcus Dobbs, their top special teams guy, was arrested after a single car crash early Friday morning. His 25th birthday was also on Friday. Hate when that happens. "He was involved in a crash and we suspect he was under the influence of alcohol," California Highway Patrol Officer D.J. Sarabia told CSNBayArea.com.

After likening an NFL QB to a CEO, a columnist took 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick to task for his tattoos, writing, "you don’t want your CEO to look like he just got paroled.”
I don’t think there was ever a question there. I think it’s just a lot of gobble gobble turkey. Just gobble, gobble, gobble turkey from jive turkey gobblers … that paints a pretty good picture. He’s a very confident guy.

Second-year 49ers veteran Demarcus Dobbs was arrested early Friday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence and possession of marijuana, the California Highway Patrol said, and he did not travel to St. Louis with the team later in the day and won’t play in Sunday’s game against the Rams.
Colin Kaepernick has officially been given the chance to become the next face of the San Francisco 49ers, and so far he has answered the call. There has been little to criticize Kaepernick for in his first two NFL starts, both of which were convincing wins. While it would be difficult to criticize him for his play, one writer felt the need to bash him for something totally unrelated...
There's a price to pay for those who venture across the middle of the San Francisco 49ers' defense.
Dashon Goldson and Donte Whitner are making sure of that.
The territory patrolled by the pair of hard-hitting safeties has become a danger zone this season for San Francisco opponents, several of whom have had to be helped off the field after getting leveled by one of the...
Just as he was playing possibly the of his eight-year career, 49ers quarterback Alex Smith saw it all unravel in the last three weeks after a concussion sidelined him on Nov. 11 and second-year pro Colin Kaepernick stepped in. Now healthy, Smith finally spoke up Thursday, a day after head coach Jim Harbaugh named Kaepernick the starter for Sunday's game in St. Louis and, it...
Earlier this week, the Sporting News' David Whitley, seemingly without provocation, went after 49ers starting quarterback Colin Kaepernick ... for having tattoos.
"San Francisco's Colin Kaepernick is going to be a big-time NFL quarterback," Whitley wrote in a story published Wednesday. "That must make the guys in San Quentin happy. Approximately 98.7 percent...

The San Francisco 49ers got some financial help from three veterans in locking up NaVorro Bowman to a contract extension this week.
CSNBayArea.com reported Friday that tight end Vernon Davis, cornerback Carlos Rogers and defensive lineman Ray McDonald restructured their deals to create the cap room to grant Bowman a $7.5 million signing bonus.
The team agreed to terms with NaVorro...
There's a price to pay for those who venture across the middle of the San Francisco 49ers' defense. Dashon Goldson and Donte Whitner are making sure of that, roaming the center of the field with impunity and delivering the kind of pain that’s leaving fear in their wake throughout the NFL.
A quarterback switch is common place when a team is struggling but the San Francisco 49ers appeared to be one of the best teams in the NFL. When Alex Smith was concussed in a game against the St. Louis Rams in Week 10 he found out how quickly one can be replaced in the NFL.
“I mean, it sucks. I don’t know what else to say,” Smith said Thursday, per Matt Maiocco of Comcast SportsNet...
It appears Jim Harbaugh is staying with Colin Kaepernick despite his uneven performance against the Rams.
The 49ers and Kaepernick, who finished was 21 of 32 for 208 yards, failed to adjust to the Rams in the second half and also failed to stay in bounds at the end of regulation, which allowed the Rams enough time to go down the field for the tying score.
Kaepernick also air...
Only way a person believes that tattoos suddenly make this sweet faced individual look like a thug is if they’re one chromosome from having one chromosome.
So, let me guess…people learned zero, zip, nada, nothing from Allen Iverson?
Let me refresh your memory. Allen Iverson was lambasted for years for having visible tattoos and cornrows. Fastforward barely a decade after...
For the second time in three weeks, the St. Louis Rams and San Francisco 49ers battled past regulation in a hard-fought NFC West tussle but unlike their Week 10 meeting, Sunday's eerily similar tilt ended with a winner, as Greg Zuerlein connected on a 54-yard field goal with 26 seconds remaining in OT to give the Rams a 16-13 victory at Edward Jones Dome.
Both Zuerlein and...
