Harbaugh tries to break up tussle

Jim Harbaugh isn't going to be intimidated. The 49ers were in Tennessee to take on the Titans on Sunday, and the San Francisco head coach wound up having a front-row seat to a sideline fracas that broke out in the second half. Harbaugh, in case you didn't know, is no normal head coach. Instead of shrinking and letting the referees sort it out, Harbaugh stuck his face in...

Dial and Carradine Partake in First Practices

Injuries to the 49ers' defensive front have taken its toll over the last few weeks, which could expedite the arrivals of Tank Carradine and Quinton Dial. The two rookies participated in their first practices this week and have gotten good reviews from Jim Harbaugh and their teammates.

49ers' production at tight end goes beyond Davis

(Eds: Adds details, quotes.) By CRAIG MASSEI Associated Press A big part of the San Francisco 49ers' offense the past few seasons will be playing against them Sunday for the Tennessee Titans. But an emerging San Francisco attack appears to be absorbing the loss of Delanie Walker well at the tight end position, and it's not just the exploits of starter Vernon Davis. Rookie...

49ers Loosen Reins on Kaepernick in Win Over Titans

Protect the quarterback, protect the quarterback, protect the quarterback. In today's pass-happy NFL, the phrase protect the quarterback might as well be the most popular sports adage in the United States.And even though the 49ers are one of the few remaining powerhouse running teams in the league, they can simply not afford a significant injury to their star quarterback Colin...

The San Francisco 49ers know how to start a very long road trip in winning style. Colin Kaepernick threw for 199 yards and ran for 68 and a touchdown, helping the 49ers start a two-game road swing by beating the Tennessee Titans 31-17 Sunday. The 49ers (5-2) won their fourth straight before heading to London for a game with winless Jacksonville by jumping out to a 17-0 halftime...

Michael Crabtree likely back in mid-to-late November

Back in September 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman said any production San Francisco got from Michael Crabtree this season would be "gravy." Thanksgiving was floated as the earliest we'd see the receiver play after his Achilles tendon surgery in May but could it be sooner? NFL Media columnist Michael Silver reported on NFL Network's "NFL GameDay Morning...

Kaepernick’s Legs, Solid Defense and a Little Gore win Big in Tennessee

The 49ers headed into Tennessee looking for their fourth consecutive win and after 60 minutes of football they did just that. The 49ers handed the Titans their fourth loss while they improved to 5-2. The 49ers took a 24-0 lead into halftime behind the legs of Colin Kaepernick (11 rushes, 68 yards, 1 TD) and Frank Gore (24 rushes, 70 yards, 2 TD’s.) Once again the 49ers didn’t...

49ers thrash Titans, improve to 5-2

The 49ers unleashed quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s running game on Sunday for the first time this season. Kaepernick held onto the ball after a fake handoff to Frank Gore for a 20-yard touchdown run on a third-and-7 play to provide the springboard for the 49ers’ 31-17 victory over the Tennessee Titans.

San Francisco 49ers at Tennessee Titans: 2013 Week 7 NFL Pick

San Francisco 49ers (4-2) at Tennessee Titans (3-3) I have legitimate concerns about the 49ers’ offense. Their defense is more than fine once again, as opponents move the chains at a 70% rate. Even without Aldon Smith, they have plenty of talent defensively. However, offensively it’s clear that Colin Kaepernick is not the same as he was last season, at least thus far. As a result...
