Another twist in what has become the most scrutinized play in Week 1, the NFL has now come out and said that 49ers Tackle, Joe Staley, did nothing wrong when he confronted Clay Matthews and that the play should have resulted in 1st and Goal from the 3 for the 49ers.  So if you were keeping up, instead of 3rd and 6 from the 10, it should have been 4th and 2 at the 6, but if everything was called right, it would have been 1st and Goal from the 3. From the league: Dean Blandino reviewed it & determined that Staley should not have been flagged. It should have been 1st & goal from the 3 — Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) September 9, 2013

Colin Kaepernick, Russell Wilson bet on 49ers-Seahawks game?

The Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers face off this Sunday at CenturyLink Field.  To make the matchup more interesting the starting quarterbacks for both teams have put a little wager on the game. 49ers’ 

WATCH: Jim Harbaugh screams at kids in new commercial

It’s almost surreal seeing Jim Harbaugh raise his voice at somebody who isn’t wearing a striped shirt and with a whistle around their neck. But lo, here he is acting like the Jim Harbaugh that we love with sweet, innocent children. Don’t worry, this is obviously a commercial. It’s all acting. Otherwise, his hat would have been thrown on the ground, half of those kids would...

Brandon Jacobs says his one year with the 49ers was a ‘curse’

Giants running back Brandon Jacobs told reporters today that his one year with the 49ers last season was a “curse.” Brandon Jacobs called his one year in San Francisco "a curse" and added "I don't want to talk about that." — Ralph Vacchiano (@RVacchianoNYDN) September 11, 2013 Jacobs also confirmed that the 49ers didn’t want to release him last season...

Takeaways from San Francisco 49ers Week One Win

San Francisco’s last two games at Candlestick Park have been eerily similar. Both against Green Bay, both wins, and both dominated by Colin Kaepernick.  However, unlike the NFC Divisional Round matchup last year when Kaepernick torched the Packers on the ground, today the battle was won in the air.  Kaepernick threw for 412 yards and three touchdowns on route to a 34-28 win. ...

Anquan Boldin: Surprises Packer Defense!

The San Francisco 49ers grinded out a phenomenal 34-28 win over the resilient Green Bay Packers. Both teams went back and forth on the scoreboard displaying the same amount of intensity as they did in the playoffs. Some extracurricular activities even took place on the sidelines between left tackle Joe Staley and pass-rusher Clay Matthews for the unnecessary late hit on Colin Kaepernick...

Niners sign special teams ace Kaseem Osgood

I have always loved Kaseem Osgood, and his play.  The guy could flat out play special teams.  He is not that big of a threat as a wide receiver, but when you look at gunners, he is one of the best to play the game. Osgood spent time on several different rosters, but had his […]

Kaepernick, Wilson have friendly eyebrow wager for Sunday's game

There's a friendly little wager is going on between San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson ahead of their big matchup on Sunday, according to EA SPORTS.

Anquan Boldin still has a little gas left in the tank

Coming into the season, the San Francisco 49ers lacked depth at the wide receiver position.  Michael Crabtree tore his Achilles tendon during the off season, and Mario Manningham is still rehabbing his torn ACL and PCL he suffered last year.  The Niners were going to have to rely on rookies (Quinton Patton, Vance McDonald) and unproven receivers (Marlon Moore, Kyle Williams) this...

Kaepernick: Packers need 'better' game plan than 'intimidation'

Colin Kaepernick had a 34-28 victory to point to after the San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers finished up on Sunday. But he’s added some words, too. Kaepernick got drilled out of bounds by Clay Matthews on a third-quarter scramble Sunday, drawing a penalty flag. A 49ers player ended up getting penalized in the little fight that broke out afterward, too, though, meaning Green...

Russell Wilson says eyebrow bet with Colin Kaepernick is more of a joke

Jim Harbaugh on Clay Matthews slap: 'Come with some knuckles'

It's not every day that an NFL coach takes issue with the way an opposing player fights but that's what 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh did on Monday when the subject of Green Bay Packers linebacker Clay Matthews came up. Matthews started a brawl in the second quarter on Sunday when he hit an obviously out of bounds Colin Kaepernick as Kaepernick was scrambling on a third-and-6...
