San Francisco 49ers
The San Francisco 49ers got off to a fast start against the Houston Texans on Sunday Night Football. Tramaine Brock got things started when he made an interception and returned it 18 yards for a touchdown. The 49ers offense then relied upon the running game as they got back to the physical style of football that they are known for. The result was a convincing 34-3 win in front of a national audience.
The interception and return for a touchdown marked the fourth game in a row that Texans quarterback Matt Schaub has thrown an interception that was returned for a touchdown. That blunder was a history making play. Brock was able to step right in front of Andre Johnson and make the play. Schaub talked about what he saw on the play, “We had a play where I liked Andre’s little route inside and Brock fell off of Keyshawn Martin and jumped the route. He made a good play. I had a good look to go to Andre there.” He had no idea that Brock would come off of the route on the outside. It seemed a...
BEST OF MAXIM
It may have been a 34-3 blowout win for the San Francisco Forty-Niners on Sunday night, but it was not all roses for th team in red and gold. The defense and special teams were the stars of the night. Especially Tramaine Brock, who definitely stole the third corner position from Nnamdi Asmougha with two interceptions, one returned for a touchdown. But on the other side of the...
Today the San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh told reporters Monday that Michael Crabtree is starting to run, and the team is hopeful the receiver can return by middle to late November. The team put out a tweet as well letting the fans know that Crabtree has resumed running. This is huge news, because earlier […]

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick leads the NFL in jersey sales. Kaepernick’s No. 7 remained NFLShop.com’s top-selling jersey in the period spanning from April 1 through Sept. 30. The biggest jersey mover was Peyton Manning, which moved up three spots since June and leapfrogged Russell Wilson into second place. It is pretty impressive, bit […]
Coach Jim Harbaugh expects top 2012 wide receiver Michael Crabtree to return to game action in mid- to late November after recovering in quick fashion from a torn right Achilles tendon that required surgery.
The 26-year-old Crabtree had career highs last season with 85 receptions for 1,105 yards and nine touchdowns for the NFC champion Niners, and was a big reason they returned...
Defensive end Ray McDonald is not expected to be out of action an extended period of time after the 49ers received the results on his MRI examination.
“We dodged a bullet there” 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said Tuesday morning on his KNBR radio show. “It looks like Ray might have walked one off."

Defensive end Ray McDonald's third-quarter sack could have been costly for the 49ers.
McDonald sustained a right biceps injury in the process of recording a sack of Matt Schaub in the third quarter against the Houston Texans in the 49ers' 34-3 victory on Sunday night at Candlestick Park.

San Francisco 49ers HC Jim Harbaugh told reporters that WR Michael Crabtree will be “game ready” by mid-to-late November, per Matt Barrows.
On the PUP list recovering from an Achilles injury, Crabtree will be eligible for activation come Week 7. Though it is likely he won’t return until sometime later in the season. A return in Week 10 would sense considering that the 49ers...
I wondered who would get the loudest cheers when I found out that the defense was going to be introduced at the Houston Texans vs San Francisco 49ers game. Patrick Willis was not going to be cleared to suit up for this game. Usually, he is the one the gets the loudest response when his name is announced. The next most logical choice would be Navorro Bowman. He was introduced first...
San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick’s No. 7 jersey remains the NFL shops top-selling jersey for the period spanning from April 1 through Sept. 30. Peyton Manning’s No. 18 holds the number two spot.
Eight of the ten top selling jerseys below to QB’s, with only Adrian Peterson and JJ Watt being the only position players outside of quarterback to crack the list.
His name might still legally have a W in it, but do you really think that’s going to stop The Player Soon to Be Formerly Known as Whitner from proudly telling the whole world otherwise? When Sunday’s game concludes, (W)hitner will presumably go back to being an outspoken critic of the government shutdown.

Despite the Kansas City Chiefs 5-0 record, the popular opinion around NFL circles is to claim that their quarterback, Alex Smith, to be more or less a playoff quarterback but not a Super Bowl quarterback.
Even though Smith proved with the 49ers in the 2011 NFC playoff run that he can in fact make big time throws and beat a top-5 quarterback (in this case Drew Brees) in an offensive...
