San Francisco 49ers
Well, the bloom is off the rose. With players like Bernard Pollard talking about today's contest against the San Francisco 49ers as a "must win" to avoid going into the bye on a 3-game losing streak, the Titans turned in their worst performance of the season, going down 24-0 and hardly showing a pulse until the fourth quarter in a 31-17 loss that sends them into the bye with that 3-game losing streak and under .500 at 3-4.
The 49ers started off pretty good on offense. They only had 3 points on their first two drives after stalling out in field goal range and starting at the 1, but scored touchdowns on their next two possessions. Colin Kaepernick had some nice throws and made some plays with his legs (an area where the Titans struggled once again), Frank Gore ran hard, including scoring two touchdowns, and Vernon Davis and Anquan Boldin made good catches. There were less productive after that, but at 24-0 this game was basically over.

Nothing is worse than throwing an interception or losing a fumble, especially when your team is trying to mount a comeback. Because of the repercussions of turnovers, sometimes coaches make irrational decisions, such as bringing back quarterbacks that aren’t...

The San Francisco 49ers’ early season struggles seem less concerning now that they have won four games in a row. In Sunday’s win over the Tennessee Titans, which improved the team’s record to 5-2, a well-rounded 49ers team handily beat the Titans on offense, defense, and special teams. All cylinders are clicking for this team that next faces...

Colin Kaepernick helped on the ground as well with 68 yards and running for...
49ers HC Jim Harbaugh told reporters following Sunday’s win over the Titans that OLB Aldon Smith could return to the team during the team’s bye week in week 9.

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...
