2016 NFL Draft: Five targets for the San Francisco 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers truly missed Jim Harbaugh during the 2015 season. They had the season everyone expected them to under Jim Tomsula and now, they have another new name at the helm: Chip Kelly. I would expect him to bring in a lot of players to fit his new offense, but wouldn’t be surprised to see some names that many expect to be gone to stick around. They do, however, have...

49ers still very likely to trade Colin Kaepernick?

The hiring of Chip Kelly as the San Francisco 49ers’ new head coach might not be enough to keep quarterback Colin Kaepernick from being traded away this offseason. According to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, the 49ers are still “very likely” to deal their 28-year-old quarterback before the start of the 2016 season. La Canfora notes that Kaepernick has “done nothing” to...

San Francisco 49ers: Two former QB’s weigh in on Kap at Super Bowl media day

      With the Super Bowl being on the 49ers home turf, I can’t help but reflect on the current differing states between Colin Kaepernick and Cam Newton. Both were in the 2011 draft, but selected 35 picks apart. Cam was number one and Kap was 36 overall. Their debuts were promising. At the end of the 2011 season Cam was awarded rookie of the year.

If that is, in fact, the case, Kelly has a strange way of presenting it. Kelly was officially introduced in San Francisco on Wednesday, and he refused to commit to Kaepernick as his starting quarterback. Instead, he cited...

Report finds San Francisco got raw deal with Super Bowl events

The NFL is big business, but the Super Bowl is the biggest business of all. It brings in countless millions in tourist dollars and can make or break a city’s image. Host a dud and suddenly your city “isn’t cool” anymore.
