Observations from around the league as training camps gear up ... What do you think of Randy Moss? He is not going to end up on any of my teams, and I'll likely be the person least interested in him at every draft. I have a few problems with taking Moss, who did not play a single NFL snap last season. First, he'll be 35.5 years old once the season starts, which means he's well past his prime. Moreover, the 49ers are strictly a run-first team, which limits the upside any receiver in that offense. Last season, Michael Crabtree (the team's best wide-receiver option) led the team with 874 receiving yards, and you have to go back to the 2003 season to find a 1,000-yard receiver (Terrell Owens with Jeff Garcia) for the 49ers. When we last saw him in 2010, Moss appeared to be a shell of his former self, and with an ADP of 133, I'm going to pass. ... What's up with the stockpiling of running backs in the NFL? I discussed this topic on the RotoWire SiriusXM fantasy ...

San Francisco 49ers 2012 Season Preview

I was trying to figure out a way to attack the San Francisco 49ers 2012 Season Preview when I realized this is going to be difficult. A lot of the things that went right last year are simply a result of excellent coaching, smart players and luck.  Two of the three of those things won’t, at least they shouldn’t, change but will the 49ers get the bounces they did during the regular...

Bowman looking to build on last year's success

With newborn twins waiting at home and plenty of work to do on the field, NaVorro Bowman is feeling a great sense of responsibility this summer with the San Francisco 49ers. That comes with the territory after Bowman's emergence last year as one of the NFL's best linebackers in just his second season. Bowman went from a reserve role as a rookie to becoming a first-team...

Donte Whitner scoffs at Saints players for using bounty system

Getty Images San Francisco 49ers safety Donte Whitner scoffed at the New Orleans Saints players for having to use a bounty system in order to motivate themselves to play hard.  He believes a team shouldn’t need bounties to motivate themselves. “If you have the right type of guys in that (defensive) room, you don’t have to set bounties or pay money for guys to play physical...

Scott Shanle tells Donte Whitner to shut his mouth

Good old twitter. It seems that Saints linebacker Scott Shanle (Don’t worry I had to google his name as well) had a few choice words for 49ers safety Donte Whitner. It seems that Shanle read an article where Whitner said that ‘good defenses don’t need bounties.’ It looks like Shanle didn’t take to kindly to that. I’m guessing Shanle still can’t get over the fact that...
