Getty Images San Francisco 49ers safety Donte Whitner scoffed at the New Orleans Saints players for having to use a bounty system in order to motivate themselves to play hard.  He believes a team shouldn’t need bounties to motivate themselves. “If you have the right type of guys in that (defensive) room, you don’t have to set bounties or pay money for guys to play physical and play hard,” Whitner said,  per the San Jose Mercury News. “It’s going to come naturally. That’s the type of guys we have on our defense.” I agree with Whitner, if an NFL player needs to have a bounty system in place to play even hard, they shouldn’t be player football on the pro level.  Just being able to play in the NFL and make good money doing so, should be enough of an incentive.

Jim Harbaugh blasts media for criticizing rookie A.J. Jenkins

The 49ers are going to try to establish a better passing game this season, and first-round draft pick A.J. Jenkins is expected to be a significant part of the plan. By adding Jenkins, Randy Moss and Mario Manningham, San Francisco is hoping their offense can become more dynamic and Alex Smith can be more effective throwing the ball. However, there has been some indication that Jenkins...

San Francisco 49ers 2012 Season Preview

I was trying to figure out a way to attack the San Francisco 49ers 2012 Season Preview when I realized this is going to be difficult. A lot of the things that went right last year are simply a result of excellent coaching, smart players and luck.  Two of the three of those things won’t, at least they shouldn’t, change but will the 49ers get the bounces they did during the regular...

Jim Harbaugh Retracts On Randy Moss Being Best 49ers Receiver

San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh recently retracted from a statement he made to former Oakland Raiders signal-caller Rich Gannon regarding Randy Moss being the best wide receiver on the team, according to Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com. Harbaugh cleared up the confusion, clarifying that a No. 1 receiver has not been named and the original statement was made in reference...

Peter King: “Randy Moss absolutely has something left”

Getty Images Peter King of SI.com told Rich Eisen of the NFL Network via NFL.com, that San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Randy Moss that there’s no doubt Randy Moss has plenty of talent left. “When I saw Randy Moss come off the line of scrimmage and fake Perrish Cox so severely that Cox slipped and Randy Moss ran across the middle and caught a beautiful crossing throw,” King...

Bowman looking to build on last year's success

With newborn twins waiting at home and plenty of work to do on the field, NaVorro Bowman is feeling a great sense of responsibility this summer with the San Francisco 49ers. That comes with the territory after Bowman's emergence last year as one of the NFL's best linebackers in just his second season. Bowman went from a reserve role as a rookie to becoming a first-team...

Niners' Gore ready for competition, more winning

Frank Gore doesn't much believe in being overworked. While the 49ers went to great lengths to expand their depth chart behind Gore, the team's leading rusher with 1,211 yards last season, it's not in the prideful 29-year-old's job description or genetic fiber to hand the ball off. He's not only leading by example at practice, Gore is giving younger running...

49ers' Gore still driven despite accomplishments

(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) Frank Gore may stand alone among all San Francisco 49ers running backs but he's not done working. The three-time Pro Bowler is still one of the first players to arrive each day at team headquarters, beginning his training camp ritual with an early morning conditioning session long before the 49ers take to the practice field...

Moss, Manning looking for revivals

Observations from around the league as training camps gear up ... What do you think of Randy Moss? He is not going to end up on any of my teams, and I'll likely be the person least interested in him at every draft. I have a few problems with taking Moss, who did not play a single NFL snap last season. First, he'll be 35.5 years old once the season starts, which means he...
