San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis settled for a jumpshot through the goalpost to celebrate scoring a touchdown during the first quarter of Sunday night's NFL game against the Detroit Lions, rather than risking another failed dunk attempt
Davis made the shot easily, so he may be sticking with this celebration move from now on.
Davis scored another touchdown in the fourth quarter, and finished the game with five catches for 73 yards during Sunday night's 27-19 Niners victory.

The 49ers will release Randy Moss sometime this year. It may happen sooner. It may happen later. But it will happen.
Why? Because for reasons that mystify me, he’s on the field for fewer than 25% of their plays. And when he IS on the field he’s little more than a decoy for Manningham, Davis or Crabtree—EVEN WHEN HE’S IN SINGLE COVERAGE!!!
Which begs the twofold...
Name the 49ers quarterback who has thrown the most consecutive passes without an interception. Joe Montana? Wrong. Steve Young? Also wrong. The record-holder is none other than the current, much-maligned San Francisco quarterback. Alex Smith marked his 185th regular-season attempt without a pick Sunday, setting the new record. Young held the record for the 49ers going into Sunday...
Jim Harbaugh considers Muhammad Ali the most competitive athlete of all time - in anything.
Harbaugh got so giddy hearing his father's stories of recently spending a Ravens practice alongside Ali in Baltimore, San Francisco's coach shared it all with his players at the first possible chance.
That was last Tuesday. Five days later, the 49ers (2-0) dominated the Detroit Lions...
How great is this guy? He videobombs Alex Smith and Michael Crabtree for a good 2-minutes without detection following the 49ers Sunday night victory over the Lions. The Hooded wonder leans in to listen to the 49ers quarterback, nods approvingly, shifts uncomfortably from side to side like a guy waiting for his buddy to steal a Playboy magazine from a corner store, and generally...

Alex Smith’s interview with NBC after the 49ers beat the Lions on Sunday night may have been the most amusing part of the network’s telecast. As the 49ers quarterback was being interviewed following his 226-yard, two touchdown performance, a super creepy dude wearing a hoodie began sneaking up behind him...
If you saw Alex Smith in his post game interview you would have seen the blood flowing down the front of his nose, Smith didn’t let a sore nose stop him from finding a way to beat the Detroit Lions to move his 49ers to 2-0. Smith showed he is one tough competitor. Smith finished the game going 20 of 31 for 226 yards and 2 touchdowns. He found a way to get his team down the field...
Which way does the thumb turn for the 49ers after their 27-19 victory over the Detroit Lions on Sunday night, including Alex Smith driving with blood dripping in crunch time, turning over a chance at NFL history, losing the battle of cheap shots, Vernon Davis’ post-TD jump shots, Dashon Goldson’s sticky mitts in center field, WRs Michael Crabtree and Mario Manningham and much...
The San Francisco 49ers stymied 2011 NFL MVP Aaron Rodgers in Week 1, then record-setting Matthew Stafford in Week 2.
This stingy, opportunistic defense is again making its mark as one of the league's best facing the top offenses and most prolific passers -- and that you can shake on.
The Niners denied Stafford another milestone, Vernon Davis caught touchdown passes of 21 and...
The Lions are once again being accused of being cheap on the field.
After last night’s game between the Lions and 49ers, San Francisco lineman and Central Michigan alum Joe Staley didn’t pull any punches when expressing his feelings on the Lions;
“I think it was key for our front offensive line to handle it tonight because they like to be cheap after the play and they think...
Note: While these pieces are typically reserved for Thursday Night Football and Monday Night Football games, the passing of my Yia Yia (Grandma in Greek) this week had me swap Thursday’s Bears-Packers game with tonight’s Lions-49ers clash. Thanks for your understanding and prayers.
If the NFL’s been really good at one thing the past few years it’s been giving us a variety...
Literacy is apparently not a requirement to play for San Francisco.Either that, or the 49ers have a vastly over-inflated view of their accomplishment on Sunday night.To be fair, the Detroit Lions came in and were forced to play San Franciso's style of football. The 49ers played better. They took advantage of their opportunities. They won the game.Since the final seconds ticked...
