San Francisco 49ers, RISING: The 49ers walked away from April's draft with eleven players, six of which should be solid players for years to come. Their later picks could prove to be worthy of selection too, it's just too early to make any sort of judgment on picks, especially late round picks. In addition, the 49ers added Anquan Boldin for next to nothing in the offseason. The 49ers aren't going anywhere soon. They'll remain near the top of NFC again in 2013. Seattle Seahawks, FALLING: The Seahawks selected an unimpressive draft crop this offseason. In addition, they lost their insurance at the quarterback position. The Seahawks aren't exactly free falling, but with a whole offseason to get ready for Russell Wilson, it's not unlikely that Wilson will suffer a bit of sophomore slump. St. Louis Rams, FLAT: It's hard to imagine the Rams being much better than last season, even with the addition of a blockbuster draft pick such as Tavon Austin. The R...

There really is no way of stopping Frank Gore

Teams are scrambling to find a way to slowdown the run game of the San Francisco 49ers, especially with Colin Kaepernick and Frank Core in the backfield. There is one scheme that failed quite a bit a year ago, and that was lining up eight defenders in the box. That old tactic was great against a team that lined up in your old-school I-formation set with the QB directly under center...

When asked, Newton stated that he is not threatened by these new faces. Please click here to read this...

Look at This Picture of Cris Carter and Randy Moss

Look at this photo. Look at this god damn thing. Look at it and tell me you have ever seen anything more spectacular. You can't. You would be lying. And I hate liars. I have no real context for this image. I just thought it was important enough to show you all this today on a crappy Monday. I was found from a rather random Twitter account, and that didn't really provide...

Levi's Stadium the New Home of the San Francisco 49ers

These days for NFL teams it is all about the stadium--bigger, better, and more luxurious. The San Francisco 49ers know this which is why they are building a new home. When it opens for the 2014 season it will have a name that will be familiar to all. No--not Steve Young Stadium or the House that Joe (Montana) Built. But Levi's Stadium Levi's was founded in San...

According to Peter King of SI.com, the Chiefs will have to give the 49ers a 2nd round pick for quarterback Alex Smith if they end up finishing with an 8-8 record or better in 2013.

Now it can be told: The second draft choice San Francisco will receive from the Smith deal will be K.C.’s second-rounder...

49ers bring back guard Adam Snyder on 2-year deal

The San Francisco 49ers have signed guard Adam Snyder to a two-year contract, bringing him back to the franchise after a year with the Arizona Cardinals. The NFC champion Niners already have a steady offensive line intact to protect quarterback Colin Kaepernick, so Snyder might be fighting for playing time in his return. Arizona released the 31-year-old Snyder last Monday after...

Ravens still looking for Anquan Boldin’s replacement

Ravens assistant general manager Eric DeCosta told the Baltimore Sun that they’re still looking for a veteran wide receiver after trading away Anquan Boldin this offseason. “I think the hunt goes on,” DeCosta said.. “We’re still working. The roster is not set. We’re always evaluating. We’re always looking at guys. Guys get signed, guys get cut. “Our pro personnel...

The Understated Fantasy Football Value of Dennis Pitta

It’s been two months since we first heard, upon Anquan Boldin’s departure to San Francisco, that Baltimore Ravens tight end Dennis Pitta would benefit from the absence of Joe Flacco’s security blanket. It’s immediately clear to anyone who watched the Ravens’ (sometimes brutally bad) offense in 2012 why Pitta would be the beneficiary of Boldin’s exit from Baltimore. Pitta...

AFC North: post-draft stock watch

Baltimore Ravens, FALLING: The Ravens have been losing some of their best players this offseason, and this season's Ravens won't be the same team that won the Super Bowl earlier this year. Still, the Ravens will be a good football team, but it's hard to imagine them sniffing a repeat without the help of Ray Lewis, Ed Reed or Anquan Boldin, to name a few. Playing in a...
