Little hope for Harbaugh’s Niners without Smith

Sometimes you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone and without Justin Smith the San Francisco 49ers defense immediately becomes average. Since Smith left the game in the second half against the New England Patriots, the 49ers defense has given up 76 points. Let me repeat that – 76 points! That is just pathetic. If Smith doesn’t return for the playoffs the defense...

San Francisco 49ers: A.J. Jenkins Looking Like 1st Round Bust

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...

49ers Injury Report: Vernon Davis ‘Should Be Available’

Davis should be available for the 49ers’ regular-season finale against the Cardinals after sustaining a mild concussion...

Justin Smith’s uncertain playoff future would be a major blow to 49ers’ defense

The San Francisco 49ers have been gashed for big yardage after DT Justin Smith was injured on Dec. 16th against the New England Patriots, and he is unlikely to play in the season finale against the Arizona Cardinals due to his partially torn left triceps. Moving forward after the finale, his status for the playoffs is uncertain as well. He could either miss some or all of the post...

Jenkins could get opportunity this week

A.J. Jenkins' time is now. Following Sunday's season-ending knee injury to Mario Manningham, the 49ers' first-round pick finally figures to be a part of a game plan. He's been active three times this season, but has yet to catch a pass, while sitting behind the team's veteran stable of receivers. Jenkins has quietly gone about his business, trying to soak...

49ers optimistic even without Smith

Patrick Willis believes the San Francisco 49ers can still be a great defense even without All-Pro tackle Justin Smith. The 49ers might have to spend the rest of this season finding out whether or not Willis, their All-Pro linebacker and defensive leader, is correct. Smith is unlikely to play Sunday in the regular-season finale against Arizona because of a partially torn left triceps...

49ers linebacker rips Seahawks fan’s sign

I’m not really sure what the Seahawks fan thought Bowman was going to do to the sign when he handed it to him, but he couldn’t have been totally shocked that Bowman ripped it.  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...

Alex Smith Playing For Arizona Next Season?

It’s become more than apparent that the San Francisco 49ers intend to move forward with Colin Kaepernick as their starting quarterback, which means that Alex Smith‘s time with the franchise is likely coming to an end in the next few months. There are a number of teams in need of help at the quarterback position and Smith has been tossed out as a potential option for teams like...
