  There’s nothing like having a backup running back fire the opening salvo of trash talk just days before the first of two huge ballgames between the NFC’s top two teams. That’s exactly what 49ers running back Anthony Dixon did when he fired off this shot on Twitter about the She-Hawks, I mean the Seahawks. Extra weight on the racks all week getting less sleep preparing for these She-Hawks I love hostile environments Imma feel right at home… — Anthony Dixon (@Boobie24Dixon) September 12, 2013 Now the question is who on the Seahawks will respond. Paging Richard Sherman.

Anthony Dixon refers to Seattle as the She-Hawks

49ers running back Anthony Dixon referred to the Seahawks as the “She-Hawks” on Twitter. K.J. Wright of Seattle responded to Dixon, both players have since deleted their tweets. What’s really funny is that Dixon doesn’t even play that much.  It looks like his teammates will have to back up his boneheaded comment.     Need NFL Tickets? Loading... ZergNet ...

49ers: Key Players Must Deliver Against Seattle

Just like every NFL team in this league, none of them are what you call “perfect” on both sides of the ball. Evidently, the San Francisco 49ers did have some noticeable imperfections on both their offensive line and defensive secondary against the Green Bay Packers. On Sunday, the 49ers will face their long time nemesis the Seattle Seahawks, continuing one of the best rivalries...

Colin Kaepernick: Week 1′s Gem

To say the San Francisco 49ers lived up to the hype Week 1 versus the fellow NFC powerhouse Green Bay Packers may be a bit of an understatement. With their defense playing at mid-season form and their signal caller, Colin Kaepernick, looking like a 10-year veteran, San Francisco may have turned a few more heads in the home opener. From the very beginning Mike McCarthy’s Packers...

Niners sign special teams ace Kaseem Osgood

I have always loved Kaseem Osgood, and his play.  The guy could flat out play special teams.  He is not that big of a threat as a wide receiver, but when you look at gunners, he is one of the best to play the game. Osgood spent time on several different rosters, but had his […]

Anquan Boldin still has a little gas left in the tank

Coming into the season, the San Francisco 49ers lacked depth at the wide receiver position.  Michael Crabtree tore his Achilles tendon during the off season, and Mario Manningham is still rehabbing his torn ACL and PCL he suffered last year.  The Niners were going to have to rely on rookies (Quinton Patton, Vance McDonald) and unproven receivers (Marlon Moore, Kyle Williams) this...

Smith off to another fast start

Quarterback Colin Kaepernick and linebacker Patrick Willis engaged in a friendly game of one-on-one with a miniature basketball at one end of the San Francisco 49ers' locker room Across the room, Aldon Smith leaned back on a stool and waved off a suggestion this week's game against Seattle is any more important than the others on the schedule. Five days before the 49ers...

Kassim Osgood Re-Signs With The 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers have re-signed vaunted special teams man, Kassim Osgood. He is listed as a wide receiver but sparingly plays on offense. He is labeled an ace on special teams and has been in the NFL since 2003. Over his ten-year career, he’s only missed 10 games and played all 16 last year with the Detroit Lions.  Osgood was probably signed because the 49ers designated...

Undercover Seattle cops will pose as 49ers fans on Sunday night

getty The Seattle Seahawks will have police officers pose as fans of the San Francisco 49ers during Sunday nights game between the two teams. Seattle announced the plan Wednesday saying it was to create a safe environment for all fans attending the game. Staff will stop unruly behavior, foul language and verbal or physical harassment of opposing team fans. The plan will start with...

Nnamdi Asomugha Starts a New Chapter in San Francisco

At 31-years old and in his eleventh professional season, it’s safe to say that Nnamdi Asomugha may be in the twilight of his days as an elite NFL cornerback. If San Francisco is indeed the final stage in an exceptional and at times turbulent career, then Asomugha will have come full circle. First making a name for himself as a standout safety at UC Berkeley, and later as an All...

San Francisco 49ers: 2013 Week 2 NFL Power Rankings (#2)

The only reason the 49ers aren’t #1 is because they lost the Super Bowl last season. no team has lost the Super Bowl and come back to win it the following season in over 40 years. No reigning Super Bowl loser has even made the Super Bowl the following season since the early 90s Bills. It’s why I didn’t pick the Patriots last season. It’s very physically and mentally tough...

Richard Sherman has no problem with Colin Kaepernick’s bicep kiss celebration

Given that Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman is a known provocateur on the football field — as well as off it — perhaps it should not be surprising that he said he has no problem with San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kapernick’s patented touchdown celebration of kissing his bicep. Heading into a huge showdown with […]The post Richard Sherman has no problem...

Donte Whitner: Russell Wilson is careless with the football

49ers safety Donte Whitner told Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports that he believes they’ll have chances to make some big plays against Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson on Sunday night. “He does,” said Whiter. ”Whenever you play that style of football where you’re running around and some guys get open sometimes by (Wilson) running, you’ll give (defenders) some opportunities...

49ers, Seahawks rivalry gets better by the year

They engage each other in bitter verbal back and forth from their respective posts separated by some 800 miles of the Pacific Coast. They claim each other's waiver leftovers - not always, it seems, for a competitive advantage but rather in acts of gamesmanship. The men in charge, Pete Carroll and Jim Harbaugh, have been fierce rivals back to their college coaching days in the...

Matthews Not Dirty; He's Awesome

With a smile and a joke, Clay Matthews puts an end to the simmering emotions from last week's late hit against San Francisco and Jim Harbaugh's postgame criticism.
