Last night on SiriusXM NFL Radio Tim Brown responded, unpromted, to a general call about the Oakland Raiders' last playoff appearance with a bold assertion. Co host Zig Fracassi mentioned the high-profile distraction created this week by the report that Michael Crabtree had been accused of sexual assault in the hours following their victory to send them to the NFC championship...
BIRD IS THE WORD
With the team trailing by three points late in the fourth quarter, San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore took the ball nine yards for the game winning touchdown. San Francisco’s defense was able to hold on to the lead and beat the Falcons 28-24. However, one of the best moments of the day came when Gore decided to celebrate his touchdown with the dirty bird. Check out the...
After leading his team down to score a go-ahead touchdown, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick wanted to get something to drink. Evidently, whatever was in that cup was not what he expected. The look on his face is utterly priceless, and it is even funnier that he casually puts the cup back and grabs another. You have to wonder, what was in that cup?
Terrible timing and horrible allegations are proving to be a distraction for the 49ers right before the NFC championship game. San Francisco’s wide receiver Michael Crabtree has been questioned by police regarding a sexual assault allegation.

Here’s the statement released...
ATLANTA -- Frank Gore ran for a pair of second-half touchdowns and the 49ers rebounded from a 17-0 deficit to beat the Atlanta Falcons 28-24 in the NFC championship game Sunday, sending San Francisco to the Super Bowl for the first time since 1995.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the 49ers do not anticipate Michael Crabtree being charged in the sexual assault case against him.
Schefter cites a “well-placed league source” that says another witness interviewed by SFPD backed up Crabtree’s story:
A second female witness backed up Crabtree’s version of the events to police, according to the source, and there’s a...
