San Francisco 49ers

Cover Your Eyes, Children! Here's what you would be doing if you loved your children this Sunday. Instead of sitting them down in front of the San Francisco 49ers and Minnesota Vikings football game, you would instead tell them that you love them, that you care for them, and that you want them to live a better life than what you have lived. That life includes transgender strippers, killing a man during a hit and run, and being a Vikings fan. More than anything, you don't want him to suffer through these atrocities and scaring life moments like you have, ESPECIALLY the 0-4 Super Bowl record. So you'll take him to the Mall of America, maybe, and let them go crazy on some rides. Or take the morning and afternoon at that kooky Renaissance Festival, and have them ride an elephant, buy them a wooden sword and shield, and stuff their little face with corn on the cob and a piping hot funnel cake. Or think small! Take them out to that playground that's been neglected ...

According to Aaron Wilson of Scout.com, the San Francisco 49ers worked out free agent linebacker Shawne Merriman on Wednesday, but ended up signing Eric Bakhtiari while Clark Haggans serves his three game suspension.
I’m not shocked at least one team has no taken a look at Merrman. I’m sure others have spoken to him as well, but I can’t imagine him getting signed by anyone...
The Minnesota Vikings' injury report looked much different for week three as they have finally left star running back Adrian Peterson off of the list. After returning from an ACL injury that he sustained last season against the Washington Redskins, he was always listed as out or probable. However, Peterson's injury is no longer a concern as he is "healthy"...
The day will soon come when Brett Favre and the Packers decide to play nice. The way their relationship ended was obviously less than ideal, but time heals all. When you consider the fact that Favre played 16 seasons with the Packers and brought Green Bay a Super Bowl, it would be crazy to think the feud will last forever.
During a recent interview with ESPN’s Mike Tirico, Favre...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Through eight months of rehab for a torn ACL, Adrian Peterson couldn't think of anything more than getting the chance to run the ball in a game again. Now that he has returned to the field, the Minnesota Vikings' top running back knows he can't do it alone.Preparing for Sunday' game at home against the stout San Francisco 49ers run defense, Peterson...
Sunday the San Francisco 49ers take their Super Bowl caliber team to Minnesota to take on the Vikings. And although the Vikings are not an easy opponent to take on, the game certainly doesn’t have the hoopla surrounding it like the 49ers first two contests against the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions did. The atmosphere and tension heading into Sundays game against the Vikings...
Minnesota Vikings linebacker Erin Henderson will miss the game against San Francisco on Sunday because of a concussion.
Henderson was injured last weekend in Indianapolis. But symptoms did not start showing until the middle of this week. The Vikings kept Henderson out of practice all week while he eases his way back.
His loss is a big one for a young and rebuilding Vikings defense...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Quarterback Christian Ponder and the Minnesota Vikings' receivers have taken the brunt of the criticism for the team's lack of downfield passing over the first two weeks.Ponder has completed two passes that traveled more than 20 yards in the air during the first two games, both in the season opener against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Last week, Minnesota...
Pundits across the nation are hyping up The San Francisco 49ers, claiming that they’re the best team in the NFL. They continue from last year praising the defense but this year they are also applauding the offense for its improvement. The 49ers retained all 11 defensive starters and made big offseason additions at wide receiver and running back. They brought in Randy Moss and Mario...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. The way Jared Allen sees things, he believes he should have about three sacks already this season while facing young quarterbacks Blaine Gabbert and Andrew Luck through the season's first two weeks.Allen, who led the NFL last season with 22 sacks, is still without one and is left to wonder about the occasions in which he had quarterbacks in his grasp. Allen...
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree may be a fashionisto — or whatever the masculine version of “fashionista” is — but even if that’s the case, the fact that he tweeted the above photo where he is modeling one of the most hideous and garish vests I have ever seen does him no favors [...]
Jerome Simpson has been counting down the days until he can make a difference on the field and start practicing with the Vikings again. That day is drawing near.
According to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee, the 49ers have listed both wide receiver Tedd Ginn Jr. and running back Brandon Jacobs as questionable for this week’s game against the Vikings.
49ers punter Andy Lee is probable.
Patrick Willis never will forget one of his first 49ers practices in 2007.
The then-rookie inside linebacker was going against guard Larry Allen, one of the biggest and most powerful men who ever played in the NFL, when he heard Mike Singletary's voice ring out behind him.
"He said, 'Hey, what are you doing, son?' " Willis said. "And I looked around...
Do you think Minnesota Vikings players play fantasy football?
It's a legitimate question, one where the answer would be telling. Not in just their simple "yes" or "no' response, but rather in seeing who they end up picking for their team. For instance, I'm sure they do. I remember big features in ESPN The Magazine where the showed the Minnesota...
Lions safety John Wendling was fined $7,875 for his hit on San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith this past Sunday.
Wendling hit Smith's helmet with his forearm, which resulted in a gash across Smith's nose in the final minutes of the 49ers' 27-19 win. Despite the hit, Wendling was not flagged by referees for his infraction.
Smith talked about the blow after San...
