San Francisco 49ers cornerback Tarell Brown was fined by the NFL for wearing red sleeves during Sunday night’s game against the Lions.
Brown ended taking a photo of the letter he received from the NFL and posted it on his Twitter account.

Deadspin ended up going to the website listed on the letter and entered the login information that was provided. They were able to access the site, as you can see from the picture below.
I wonder if the NFL will now decide to fine Brown for allowing anyone access to this secure website. I’m sure he’ll at least get a phone call.

Now that two full weeks of NFL football is in the books, it’s only fair to take a look at some of the early season power rankings, particularly in the NFC west division. Up to this point the division looks as tough as any other division in the league. Teams in this division have already demonstrated the fire to win big games, as evident by some of the upsets that the teams in...
San Francisco, CA. Before last season began, it was really up in the air as to who the favorite was to win the NFC West in 2011. After seemingly several years where this division has been regarded as the worst in all of the NFL, the San Francisco 49ers proved what all football fans have known for years….the National Football League is the most unpredictable of all the major...
Since when has it been a crime to wear red sleeves in this country? Well, the answer is never. Not unless your San Francisco 49ers cornerback Tarell Brown.Brown was pivotal in the 49ers 27-19 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday night. He played in all 65 of SF's defensive snaps and six additional plays on special teams. Unfortunately for him, he also wore red sleeves under...
It’s no secret that I focus on DB play when watching tape. I look at footwork, range, eyes, tackling and angles. The key techniques you need to be a productive player in the secondary.
And in today’s NFL, you better have two safeties in the backend that can get off the numbers in Cover 2, play the deep middle of the field, walk down over a slot, get hands on a TE and tackle in...
Last week: 13 (+4)
I still don’t think this team is much of a Super Bowl threat because eventually the turnover differentials will…blah blah blah regression I’m done repeating myself. Let’s focus on something positive, namely this amazing defense. This was Jim Harbaugh’s first full offseason with this team and many people expected an improved offense because...
The 49ers are 16-4 under Jim Harbaugh and 15-4 against the spread. That includes 6-3 on the road. These trends point to 49ers domination in Minnesota.
(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By JANIE McCAULEY AP Sports Writer Vernon Davis might get fewer style points these days for his touchdown celebrations - and he's perfectly fine with that.
The emotional San Francisco tight end learned from his blunder with the crossbar after scoring in a Week 1 win against the Packers at Lambeau Field. So, each time he scored...
EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. No team in the NFL understands how motivated receiver Randy Moss gets for big games better than the Minnesota Vikings, his club for the first seven seasons of his career and one ill-fated month in 2010.Minnesota has been the beneficiary of many of those big moments, such as when he scored two touchdowns in his first regular-season game and when he made his "...
Randy Moss appreciates the start he got with the Vikings, but he anticipates a mix of cheers and boos. Either way, he said, it means he’s doing something right.
Randy Moss returns to the Metrodome for the first time in the regular season as a visitor. Will he be the Moss of old or just an old Moss?
49ERS vs. VIKINGS (Sun Sept 23 1 PM ET)
The 49ers are off to a 2-0 start and many are saying they have the best team in the league. Alex Smith is playing well with his new weapons and San Francisco ha the leagues 3rd best rushing offense.
On top of that they pass defense has been decent and their run defense is stellar just like last season.
The Vikings lost to the...
Cover Your Eyes, Children! Here's what you would be doing if you loved your children this Sunday. Instead of sitting them down in front of the San Francisco 49ers and Minnesota Vikings football game, you would instead tell them that you love them, that you care for them, and that you want them to live a better life than what you have lived. That life includes transgender...
