Little hope for Harbaugh’s Niners without Smith

Sometimes you don’t know what you’ve got till it’s gone and without Justin Smith the San Francisco 49ers defense immediately becomes average. Since Smith left the game in the second half against the New England Patriots, the 49ers defense has given up 76 points. Let me repeat that – 76 points! That is just pathetic. If Smith doesn’t return for the playoffs the defense...

San Francisco 49ers: A.J. Jenkins Looking Like 1st Round Bust

Is A.J. Jenkins a bust? The 1st round draft pick of the 49ers hasn't caught a single pass this year, which is rather glaring given the injuries the team has suffered at the wide receiver position this season.  But what can history tell us about Jenkins' prospects?If we look back at other wide receivers previously drafted by the 49ers, those that didn't get off to a hot...

Justin Smith’s uncertain playoff future would be a major blow to 49ers’ defense

Moving forward after the finale, his status for the playoffs is uncertain as well. He could either miss some or all of the post...

He's been active three times this season, but has yet to catch a pass, while sitting behind the team's veteran stable of receivers. Jenkins has quietly gone about his business, trying to soak...

49ers optimistic even without Smith

Patrick Willis believes the San Francisco 49ers can still be a great defense even without All-Pro tackle Justin Smith.

49ers linebacker rips Seahawks fan’s sign

I’m not really sure what the Seahawks fan thought Bowman was going to do to the sign when he handed it to him, but he couldn’t have been totally shocked that Bowman ripped it.  I will say this, Bowman did just as bad of a job ripping that sign as the 49ers did playing defense on Sunday night.  He’s a huge guy and he could only rip off a little corner?  If you’re going...
