Jim Harbaugh, Alex Smith and Frank Gore look to recapture some of that old magic from the glory days of old for the San Francisco 49ers.

Randy Moss: Do Call it a Comeback

Randy Moss had not talked in a long time. But when the San Francisco 49ers wide receiver walked off the practice field this afternoon, he was in the chatty mood. Moss has been named a starter for his new team as he begins a comeback after taking one season off. But he told reporters, according to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee, there was one topic he didn’t want to entertain...

Moss listed as starter for 49ers' opener

Wide receiver Randy Moss, who did not play at all last season, is listed as a starter for the San Fancisco 49ers' opener on the team's official depth chart, according to Comcast SportsNet Bay Area. The 35-year-old Moss, who was signed as a free agent by the 49ers in March, will be paired with Michael Crabtree as the starting wide receivers against Green Bay on Sunday. ...

San Francisco 49ers: Is Randy Moss the key to push them to the Super Bowl?

The expectations for the 49ers this year are extremely high.  As a fan of the team, that worries me.  It seems like everyone is picking the Niners to take on the Houston Texans in the Super Bowl.  While that excites me and gets me amped up for a season I haven't looked forward to more than in over a decade, I still get nervous because things usually don't pan out the way...

Packers Prepping for 'Old' Moss, Not Old Moss

Randy Moss will be back at Lambeau Field this Sunday in his return to the NFL. Even after a dismal 2010 season, a year away from football and a quiet preseason, the 35-year-old Moss has the Packers’ attention.

Can Moss and Manningham make a difference?

The 49ers will be looking for newcomer veteran receivers Randy Moss and Mario Manningham to make a difference right away when they face the Green Bay Packers in Sunday’s pivotal season opener at Lambeau Field, a place Moss knows well.

Additions Give Niners Incredible Diversity

San Francisco's punchless offensive attack was given a dramatic upgrade. While they might feature Frank Gore as much as previous seasons, the 49ers have the potential to move the ball in every way imaginable. With no tendencies to study, the 49ers are leaving Dom Capers in a bit of a bind.

The League: The Fantasy Football Life- Week 1

We meet back up with a few of the managers of The League for some “who to start” talk. We are going to take a look at some of the decisions the owners are faced with during the opening week of the NFL.

49ers begin season with big hopes for receivers

(Eds: Updates. With AP Photos.) By JANIE McCAULEY AP Sports Writer Randy Moss still carries himself with that same old swagger and avoids saying much about his NFL return after a year away. Mario Manningham has no qualms speaking out about how he wants to show the West Coast what he can do seven months after leading the New York Giants to a Super Bowl title. The San Francisco 49ers...

Packers' Nelson challenge for 49ers

Arguably the NFL's top deep receiving threat will be taking the field for Sunday's 49ers-Packers game on FOX (4:25 p.m. ET kickoff). And it isn't Randy Moss. Yes, Moss once held the distinction. But having spent last season out of football after a catastrophic 2010 campaign, there are no guarantees Moss, 35, will be able to stake claim to that title again with the 49ers...

49ers linebackers becoming NFL's elite unit

(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By ANTONIO GONZALEZ AP Sports Writer Two are All-Pros. One was the runner-up for the AP Defensive Rookie of the Year. The other just received a new $44.5 million contract. Patrick Willis, NaVorro Bowman, Aldon Smith and Ahmad Brooks are not only the biggest reason behind the San Francisco 49ers' defensive success last season...

A matchup that so many wanted in the NFC Championship fell short thanks to the New York Giants winning their second Super Bowl in the last five seasons. However, the 49ers defense against the Packers offense is a dream matchup that will be given to the nation to see in the opening weekend. Patrick Willis, Navarro Bowman and Justin Smith (Aldon Smith All-Rookie) were all on the All...
