Is A.J. Jenkins a bust? The 1st round draft pick of the 49ers hasn't caught a single pass this year, which is rather glaring given the injuries the team has suffered at the wide receiver position this season. But what can history tell us about Jenkins' prospects?If we look back at other wide receivers previously drafted by the 49ers, those that didn't get off to a hot...
With David Akers missing two field goals during Sunday’s win over the Cardinals, 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh acknowledged that they’re going to “evaluate” their kicking situation. “I don’t know if we have to,” Harbaugh said when asked about possibly changing kickers. “We’ll evaluate the position.

I will say this, Bowman did just as bad of a job ripping that sign as the 49ers did playing defense on Sunday night. He’s a huge guy and he could only rip off a little corner? If you’re going...
First off thank you Minnesota Vikings. They got the 49ers the No.2 seed and a playoff bye. The Vikings needed to win to make playoffs but more importantly that win gave the 49ers a much needed bye.
Now onto the 49ers game. The 49ers needed the win over the Cardinals to win the West and it started off slow, but they got clicking on all sides of the ball and beat the Cardinals 27-13...
