The San Francisco 49ers announced that rookie safety Eric Reid will start for them right away.
“He’s getting better each and every day,” the respected coordinator said. “Overall, he’s just been steady. He’s grown into the position which has allowed his ability to come through more. He’s tackled well in the games, which is important for us… We think he’ll continue to improve as the season goes on.”
Of course Reid is happy with the good news.
“It’s obviously good news for me, so I’m just going to keep working hard and try to keep the spot,” said Reid.
The 49rs certainly didn’t draft Reid in the first round to sit and not play.

49ers punter Andy Lee is already considered one of the best at his position in the NFL. The three-time Pro Bowler could even get that much better if his plan to add a “knuckle punt” to his arsenal goes well in the final game of the preseason, during which Lee intends to try the gimmick punt.“It’s definitely something I want to do in a game to see how it actually happens in...
Listen, I know there have been a lot (and I mean A LOT) of controversial, ignorant, and just plain idiotic tweets in the handful of years that Twitter has been a social media powerhouse but, in my opinion, the one Brian Westbrook delivered yesterday takes the cake:

That Kaepernick fella will stir the drink that is the Niners offense. That leaves Colt McCoy as the back-up and seventh-rounder BJ Daniels presumably as the third-string...
