49ers WR Williams out for season

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver and return man Kyle Williams said Monday he will miss the rest of the season with a torn ligament in his left knee sustained in Sunday's win at New Orleans. Williams posted on his Twitter account that he has a torn anterior cruciate ligament in the knee. Surgery would be the likely next step. ''Regret to inform y'all I will be out...

After another big win, 49ers QBs still in limbo

Jim Harbaugh has watched each of his two quarterbacks lead the San Francisco 49ers to big wins in hostile, road environments - Alex Smith in the season opener at Green Bay's Lambeau Field back in September, and Colin Kaepernick on Sunday at the New Orleans Superdome. Which one gets the ball on Sunday at St. Louis? Harbaugh is still mum on that, though he did say Monday he will...

NOT VERY SAINTLY

Brodrick Bunkley kicks Alex Boone in head

In what surely will result in a hefty fine from the league, Saints DT Brodrick Bunkley did his best Ndamukong Suh impersonation by kicking 49ers OL Alex Boone in the head. He was promptly ejected from game. Via Doug Farrar of Yahoo Sports:With 1:13 left in San Francisco's eventual 31-21 win, the 49ers were set up to kick a 33-yard field goal, but the attempt was blocked by...

49ers use Kaepernick, defense to top Saints 31-21

Dashon Goldson turned Marques Colston upside down just as the receiver leaped for a pass over the middle. As Colston landed on his head and lay motionless for several seconds, safety Donte Whitner snagged the deflected pass on New Orleans 42 and weaved his way past Drew Brees and Co., all the way to the end zone. That was but one of the big plays turned in by a San Francisco defense...

It Appears Kapernick is the Answer for the 49ers

As you probably know by now, I'm a huge fan of the San Francisco 49ers and have been ever since I can remember. So can imagine how great I feel to see the 'Niners do well. Before last season, I haven't been able to say that for a while, since the 49ers didn't make the playoffs every year since the '02-'03 season. To be honest, I didn't expect the team...

Report: Alex Smith could be done in San Francisco

According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, this could be quarterback Alex Smith’s final season with the San Francisco 49ers if he doesn’t regain his starting spot now that Colin Kaepernick has taken over as Niners’ lead  signal-caller. The 49ers didn’t draft Kaepernick in the 4th round of the 2011 draft to sit and watch.  It’s obvious that he’s ready to take over as their...

Straight Outta Stockton - Week 12

This week's Straight Outta Stockton could easily be renamed Straight Outta Aikman as the lead NFL on Fox analyst had a rough time during yesterday's Saints-49ers game.  While a few of those are noted below, I have to pay tribute to the work Aikman is doing to the English language.  Multiple times during Sunday's telecast, Aikman said "I don't disagree"...
