Found December 08, 2012 on AFC East Daily:
Lead writer Nick St. Denis and AFC East Daily contributors Dan Begnoche and Sean Donovan pick the Miami Dolphins' road battle with the NFC's San Francisco 49ers. Nick's take: Most of the talk surrounding anything 49ers involves quarterback Colin Kaepernick, but San Francisco has a lot going on defensively, too. Defensive end Aldon Smith leads the NFL with 17.5 sacks, and this week, he'll be up against rookie Jonathan Martin, who will get his first start at left tackle after playing the first 12 games of the season on the right side. That makes an already superior team that much stronger.Prediction: 49ers 26, Dolphins 13Sean's take:The Dolphins' offensive struggles will find no reprieve in San Francisco, where a pair of Smiths are poised to take advantage of Jake Long's absence. On the other side of the ball, Miami must contend with the multidimensional Kaepernick and his arsenal of weapons in the passing game. The Dolphins keep it close early, but San Fra...

Colin Kaepernick Dumped His Girlfriend After Becoming A Starter?

My mom said if I make faces like this, my face will stay this way Juan… San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh has changed the life of his Quarterback Colin Kaepernick by anointing him the 49ers starter. He also inadvertently changed the life of one of Colin’s girlfriends. Our tipster, who sent in this pic, tells us Colin broke things off with his girlfriend Corban just...

49ers' Aldon Smith creeping closer to Strahan's sack record

San Francisco 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith hit the record books Sunday. His first sack against the Miami Dolphins set the 49ers all time sacks record (formerly occupied by Hall of Fame DE Fred Dean). Then he had one more sack. Aldon leads the NFL with 19 1/2 sacks on the season. I also puts him 3 1/2 sacks behind former New York Giants DE Michael Strahan NFL record for most...

Smith unconcerned with hype in chase of sacks mark

(Eds: APNewsNow. Will be updated. With AP Photos.) By JANIE McCAULEY AP Sports Writer Aldon Smith hardly has a free moment to stop at his locker, much less give thought to any intriguing matchups or scenarios as he chases Michael Strahan's single-season NFL sacks record. Yet, come Sunday at Candlestick Park, it won't be the injured Jake Long lining up against the 49ers defensive...

49ers move to 9-3-1 with win over Dolphins

The 49ers improved to 9-3-1 and still keep distance ahead of Seattle and the No.2 seed. However if the offense doesn’t get together and be more consistent, it will be hard to keep that No.2 spot, let alone win the West. Colin Kaepernick finished the day 18 of 23 for 183 and no touchdowns or interceptions. It was very Alexesque, that is until he scored a touchdown on a 50 yard run...

Kaepernick's TD run keys 49ers' victory

SAN FRANCISCO -- The San Francisco 49ers were clinging to a 20-13 lead late in the fourth quarter Sunday against Miami when they called a read-option run, a play quarterback Colin Kaepernick could run in his sleep. Kaepernick, who rushed for 4,112 yards and 59 touchdowns in college for Nevada, faked a handoff on third-and-five to running back Frank Gore, pulled the ball back and...

Miami Dolphins at San Francisco 49ers: Three Bold Predictions

This should make it hard for both teams to...

San Francisco 49ers Handle Miami Dolphins: Five Things We Learned

The San Francisco 49ers used their smashmouth style of play, capitalized on Miami mistakes, and treated their fans to a 27-13 home victory in Candlestick Park. It was a close game through most of the first half, but in the second half the Niners pulled away. The dagger was a Colin Kaepernick 50 yard scamper up the sideline on a read option play that had the Dolphins completely fooled...

NFL Week 14: Five Must Watch Games

Some are fighting just to get in, while the big boys are fighting to play in their own friendly confines. With that in mind, here are my five picks of the...

Gameday Deciding Factors: Dolphins at 49ers

Coming off a painful loss to a division rival, the Miami Dolphins (5-7) must travel cross-country to face one of the NFL's most complete teams in the San Francisco 49ers (8-3-1). Ryan Tannehill leads a struggling offense on the road against the league's No. 2 ranked defense, all while being without his best offensive lineman, Jake Long. Miami's defense faces the multidimensional...

Gore, Kaepernick lead 49ers past Dolphins 27-13

Frank Gore made his way through San Francisco's winning locker room and offered a public shoutout to linebacker and NFL sacks leader Aldon Smith. ''Couple more, baby! Couple more, baby!'' Gore hollered. Gore is taking charge on the 49ers offense, with Smith wreaking havoc on opposing quarterbacks for the defense. Gore ran for a 1-yard touchdown and reached...

Miami Dolphins at San Francisco 49ers: Week 14 NFL Pick

Miami Dolphins (5-7) at San Francisco 49ers (8-3) The 49ers lost to the Rams last week in St. Louis, which has gotten a lot of Alex Smith supporters saying “I told you so,” questioning Jim Harbaugh’s decision to bench Alex Smith for Colin Kaepernick. These people seem to be forgetting that Smith was losing to those same Rams at home when he got hurt and that he also lost to...
