Avg Points Allowed
The 49ers are coming off a stinging loss the Seattle. They need a win or a Seahawks loss to win the division. The 49ers are also no longer in the drivers seat for a first round bye. Defensive lineman Justin Smith had made 185 straight starts until last week. He will also miss this game. The 49ers will also be without Mario Manningham and could be without Vernon Davis.
Even with all the injuries and problems with the 49ers they are expecte...

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...
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...
During an interview with the media, 49ers tight end Vernon Davis didn’t sound very optimistic that he’ll play in tomorrow’s game against the Cardinals.
At various points during Friday’s interview, Davis said he felt “OK” and “all right” and acknowledged “taking it easy” during practice. He sounded not at all like a player expecting to return to action.
THAT'S NOT VERY NICE
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...

The San Francisco 49ers aren’t exactly the superstar team they were back in the 80′s, but with Jim Harbaugh coaching, and the team playing well the last few years, they’ve regained some of their swag. Actor Danny Glover stopped by practice to visit with Harbaugh, who he’s friendly with, and met up with Vernon Davis and some of the other fellas. Danny...
First off thank you Minnesota Vikings. They got the 49ers the No.2 seed and a playoff bye. The Vikings needed to win to make playoffs but more importantly that win gave the 49ers a much needed bye.
Now onto the 49ers game. The 49ers needed the win over the Cardinals to win the West and it started off slow, but they got clicking on all sides of the ball and beat the Cardinals 27-13...
Vernon Davis is anxious to get back on the field with the San Francisco 49ers and help them build momentum for the playoffs during Sunday's regular-season finale against Arizona but has yet to be cleared to play first.
Davis practiced in a non-contact black jersey for the second consecutive day Friday and is taking the necessary steps, according to NFL-mandated protocol, to...

Will any of the Cards’ four starting QBs this year be back in 2013? Why hasn’t the NFL’s 12th-ranked defense made the Cards a better team? Is Ken Whisenhunt on his way out as Arizona coach...
