After a strong preseason, 49ers cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha has won the No. 3 cornerback spot, according to the San Francisco Chronicle.
As a result, Old Man Asomugha will have a new title when the 49ers open the regular season against Green Bay on Sept. 8: No. 3 cornerback.
Fangio said Asomugha has overtaken Tramaine Brock for that role, which had been filled by Chris Culliver before he sustained a season-ending ACL tear in training camp. Asomugha jumped ahead while Brock was dealing with an injury the past few weeks. Asomugha, who wore a noncontact jersey in practice Tuesday, is himself at less than full strength.
Still, Fangio said he has won the No. 3 spot.
“He’s done well in his reps that he’s had in the game and in practice,” Fangio said. “Particularly the last two or three weeks, he’s played much better.”
It’s certainly a good sign that Asomugha only gave up one reception for 5 yards in 39 snaps in pass coverage, per to Pro Football Focus.

Punting has remained relatively unchanged since, well, ever. 49ers punter Andy Lee may be changing that. According to sports-kings.com through yahoosports.com Lee is working on a “knuckle-punt” which would be exactly what it sounds like. A wobbly punt that would be a punting equivalent of a knuckle ball. “It’s definitely something I want to do in a game to see how it...
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:

Francisco 49ers’ second-year running back LaMichael James suffered a sprained
MCL during Thursday nights’ preseason finale against the San Diego Chargers,
according to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee. James has had a fairly

The 49ers intend to release QB Seneca Wallace and will not play him tonight, league source says.

Matt Barrows reports that a league source has informed him that the 49ers intend to release QB Seneca Wallace following their final preseason game.
Wallace, 33, was signed to a contract just last week, but San Francisco appears to be comfortable moving forward with Colt McCoy and rookie B.J. Daniels as Colin Kaepernick’s backup this season.
Wallace didn’t generate a lot...
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...
The San Francisco 49ers didn’t waste any time making a good impression against the San Diego Chargers in the last preseason game of the 2013 season. The final score was 41 – 6. The offense looked pretty good on the first drive. The defense was even more impressive. They were some players that made a big time push for roster spots.
Quinton Patton continued to show that he was...
The San Francisco 49ers are being crowned Super Bowl Champs in almost every preseason projection, simulations and everything you could possibly think of that has to do with predicting results. In fact the simulators say that the Niners are favored in every single game they play this season. The Niners are being talked about during the offseason like they won the Super Bowl last year...
The San Francisco 49ers will wrap up the 2013 preseason with a game in San Diego against the Chargers. This is a game where none of the starters are likely to play. Usually the last preseason game is reserved for the guys at the bottom of the roster. For some of them, this is the last opportunity to show what they have. The preseason gives fringe roster players a chance to get some...
The Packers and 49ers are two of the best teams in the NFL and face off opening weekend, this is a great game for the fans.
After postings a record of 164-92 last season, I'm ready to breakthrough to 70% this season.
Here's an early look at Week 1.
Ravens @ Broncos - Denver wins at home behind Manning and a solid defense.
Vikings @ Lions - Detroit wins....
