Here are San Francisco’s most pressing questions heading into camp. 5. Super Bowl Hangover – Fresh off a heart breaking 34-31 Super Bowl XLVII loss to the Baltimore Ravens, the most obvious lingering question following the 2013 NFC Champion 49ers is if they’ll fall victim to the fabled “Super Bowl Hangover.” In the 47-year history of the Super Bowl, the losing team has only returned the following season to win the championship twice (Dallas Cowboys, Super Bowl VI and Miami Dolphins, Super Bowl VII).

Jim Harbaugh is really liking what he sees in rookie WR Quinton Patton.
“There’s quite a jump with Quinton Patton from where he came in. He elevated himself,” said Harbaugh.

San Francisco 49ers defensive tackle Justin Smith says he’s coming along good after having surgery on his triceps.
He hasn’t been able to participate in full football activities, but after the torn triceps injury that limited him at the end of 2012, he has started putting his rehab behind him.
He says he’s still not 100 percent and the expectation is Smith will hit that...
When I wrote about Quinton Patton prior to the NFL Draft, I cited the fact the 1985 was much like the 2013 Draft.There were plenty of decent receivers, but none that stood out as "must have" talent.Amongst those players was some guy named Jerry Rice. I also stated that I didn't think Patton would immediately become the greatest receiver in NFL history.But being on the...
Frank Gore doesn't see turning 30 as a bad thing, even if it's the age when most NFL running backs start to decline.
If anything, the San Francisco 49ers' career rushing leader has embraced the milestone and sees it as another means of motivation.
Not that Gore has ever needed extra incentive.
Whether it was being bypassed in the 2005 draft when he was the sixth running...
Football is a cold business when a player starts to go north of 30 years old.
It’s the benchmark that says, ‘You only have so much time left.’
For every 30 year old veteran, there is a 23 year old ready to take their roster spot.
San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore just hit the dreaded 30 mark, but he’s not worried about anything or anyone, it just motivates...
ST. LOUIS - Craig Dahl should have kept his mouth shut.
It was standard operating procedure for Dahl, a Rams safety last year who now is with the 49ers, to tell his new team why he believes his old team was able to stop San Francisco last year.
"Any time a player that's involved in a system changes addresses, there's always going to be some sort of debriefing,"...
49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick took to Instagram to show off his decently large shoe collection, and we are glad he did. As you can see from the below images the young man likes his shoes. Word is that he has somewhere around 100 pairs, and there is no way he doesn’t grow that number in the next few years. Colin also does need to step up his game if he wants to catch...
Heading into the club’s mandatory minicamp, the focus on the 49ers was clear: how will the team compensate for the loss of its best wide receiver Michael Crabtree?
