A few days into training camp, 49ers long snapper Brian Jennings had a nickname for his new special teams coordinator Brad Seely: The Professor. It wasn't just Seely's glasses and close-cropped hair - he really could be...
BEST OF MAXIM
Jim Harbaugh says he is less optimistic about wide receiver Braylon Edwards returning from right knee surgery Sunday against his former Cleveland team.
Edwards returned to practice Tuesday for the first time since his injury early in the game Sept. 18 against Dallas, the lone loss for San Francisco (5-1) so far. While he looked to be running and cutting well during the short portion...

Six weeks into the NFL season, and the 49ers’ bandwagon has started to creak under the weight of more believers.
At 5-1, San Francisco is the league’s biggest surprise.
Not only have the Niners knocked off the Lions, Eagles and Bengals on the road, but they’ve already built a big lead in the weak NFC West and appear to be almost a lock to make the playoffs as they come off...
