Welcome to the San Francisco 49ers edition of NFL Ultimate Franchise Player. This is perhaps the most fun segment in the entire series considering it contains icons who spent the majority of their careers in scarlet and gold ranked first, fourth, and 11th all-time.
Before I begin, if I could just briefly get on a soapbox on something…
Obviously doing a list of a franchises best players, in any sport, is not new. Once such ranking I saw recently ripped off (and admittedly so) the ‘Approximate Value’ rankings fro...
BEST OF MAXIM
The NFC West has become the toughest division in the NFL. The AFC North got old. The NFC East got lost in their fame and fortune. The NFC South could not stop a 300 pound Jamarcus Russell from throwing a touchdown pass.
Why is the NFC West the toughest division in football?
Each team in the West has a franchise quarterback. Colin Kaepernick, Russell Wilson, Sam Bradford and the...
In light of the recent moves made by the 49ers, signing offensive Tackle Anthony Davis, and traded for back-up Quarterback Colt McCoy, I cannot see these moves effecting the Niners draft priorities.
In extending Anthony Davis the 49ers have locked up the big man through 2019. Davis agreed to a 5 year 37.2 million extension, which solidifies an offensive line for today and years...
The San Francisco 49ers are working hard this offseason to counter everything the Seattle Seahawks do because their entire offseason moves have been made specifically to counter the 49ers. The Seahawks’ acquisitions of Percy Harvin, Michael Bennett and Cliff Avril sent a stern message: the 49ers may have made it to the Super Bowl last year, but it’s our time now.
It’s a proverbial...
San Francisco 49ers linebacker NaVorro Bowman likes what the Seattle Seahawks are doing, but compared to his 49ers, they're not there just yet.
In other words: don't beleive the hype.
"I think people like the next best thing," Bowman told the NFL.com's Around The League on Friday.
"I think people like seeing the challenger get close to being the...
Anthony Davis entered the NFL as a highly talented prospect with a considerable amount of character concerns, leading some to doubt his longevity in the league.
But with news of his lucrative contract extension, the 49ers' stud right tackle is now taking aim at his detractors, starting with his old college coach: Greg Schiano.
After signing his five-year, $37.5 million...
Locked and loaded Juan…

San Francisco 49ers offensive tackle Anthony Davis and current Buccaneers head coach Greg Schiano won't be vacationing with each other in the offseason or exchanging Christmas cards anytime soon.
Schiano was Davis' coach at Rutgers, and they didn't quite see eye to eye in the past.
Davis, fresh off of signing a new five-year, $37.3 million contract extension with...
With a bevy of off-season deals, and having two rivals be the talk of the NFC, the NFC West is shaping up to be the toughest division in football.
The Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers have become serious rival over the past two season. Now with both teams having serious Super Bowl aspirations, the rival will only get more intense.
The Seahawks who used to be the butt of jokes are...
Being the son of Joe Montana must be a tough draw. However, Nate Montana isn’t giving up on his dream of making it into the NFL. Montana worked out at the super regional combine that took place at Cowboys Stadium on Monday. The legendary quarterback’s son is looking to make the unlikely jump from Division II to the NFL. Unfortunately, NFL.com’s analyst Bucky Brooks called...
