Two years ago, both the 49ers and Miami Dolphins wooed Jim Harbaugh to be their next coach. The Niners won that courting competition and landed their high-profile man, luring him away from nearby Stanford and giving him a $25 million, five-year contract. And Harbaugh delivered immediately for the Niners, while the Dolphins had another losing season before firing coach Tony Sparano last December.

Apparently a tough loss isn't it - yet. Colin Kaepernick will make his fourth straight start Sunday as the 49ers host the Miami Dolphins, whose playoff hopes have dimmed while dropping four of five...

Brandon Jacobs lashes out at fans on Twitter

San Francisco 49ers running back Brandon Jacobs didn’t imagine that he’d be riding the bench this season when he signed on with the 49ers as a free agent this past offseason, after a successful career with the Giants. I don’t understand why people are angry at me because I wanna do what I am paid to do, I am a competitive person, I think people should be mad if I didn’t...

Pitiful Picks: Dolphins in for a physical fight, can they win?

The Miami Dolphins are about to have their toughest physical test of the season.  Though the playoffs are a distant hope at this point, it’s important that they play well and improve each week as they head into the offseason.  The primary thing I want to see if the continued development of Ryan Tannehill.  Tannehill and the Dolphins offense will have a tough matchup today against...

49ers' Gore, Brown set to play vs. Fins

Running back Frank Gore and cornerback Tarell Brown took a little time off to heal nagging injuries this week, but both are expected to play when the San Francisco 49ers host the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. Gore is nursing a wrist problem, while Brown's hamstring has been problematic. Both players said they will be ready to go and 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh confirmed that he expects...

Dolphins Defense Upset Because ‘Disrespectful’ Patriots Ran Same Play Over and Over in Week 13 Win

The Patriots beat the Dolphins 23-16 on Sunday, but the manner in which it was done isn’t sitting well with some of the Miami players. When the Patriots put the game away in the fourth quarter on a 16-play, 77-yard drive that ended with a field goal to ice the game, they did so thanks to a run-heavy attack. Of the 16 plays, 13 were running plays and what’s more, six of those...

Dolpins held in check against 49ers

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) -- Frank Gore, Colin Kaepernick and Michael Crabtree pulled off the kind of grind-it-out win Jim Harbaugh wants to see during the December stretch run. Gore ran for a 1-yard touchdown and reached 1,000 yards rushing for the sixth time in his career, and the San Francisco 49ers beat the Miami Dolphins 27-13 on Sunday.

49ers Trip Up Dolphins, 27-13: Hero/Zero of the Game

In the 27-13 win for the Niners it was pretty clear who the hero was. The defense played stoutly as it usually does. Aldon Smith came through with 2 sacks. The one player who outshined them all, in my opinion. was San Francisco quarterback Colin Kaepernick. He demonstrated why coach Jim Harbaugh had enough faith in him to take over the reigns as the starter in place of Alex Smith...

Some Dolphins players felt 'disrespected' by Patriots' repeatedly calling run plays that worked

No offense angers its past opponents quite like the New England Patriots'. Last Sunday, the Patriots were beating the Miami Dolphins by a touchdown midway through the fourth quarter. With just over eight minutes to go, the Patriots started a 16-play drive that ate more than seven minutes. During the drive, the Patriots ran the ball 13 times, with 10 carries going to Stevan Ridley...

Gameday Deciding Factors: Dolphins at 49ers

Coming off a painful loss to a division rival, the Miami Dolphins (5-7) must travel cross-country to face one of the NFL's most complete teams in the San Francisco 49ers (8-3-1). Ryan Tannehill leads a struggling offense on the road against the league's No. 2 ranked defense, all while being without his best offensive lineman, Jake Long. Miami's defense faces the multidimensional...
