The 0-3 start certainly hasn’t helped as it has already become clear this will be another season with no playoff berth. Jacksonville is a team that struggles to get fan support and has almost no game in the free agency market and that’s why the draft is so critical...

WATCH: San Francisco 49ers Finally Score First Touchdown of the 2014 Season

It took nearly 10 quarters of play for the San Francisco 49ers to score a touchdown, but late in Sunday's preseason game against the San Diego Chargers they finally did.

Are the San Francisco 49ers Stunting Colin Kaepernick’s Growth

When the San Francisco 49ers benched Alex Smith in favor of then wide-eyed second-year quarterback Colin Kaepernick during the 2012 season, skeptics concluded that the decision made little sense. Why bench a player that had led your team to the NFC Championship game the season prior, some said.  And I fell under that category. Kaepernick seemed far from being a starter-caliber quarterback...

The 49ers need to be very worried about Blaine Gabbert

When the backup quarterback enters a meaningful NFL game to do anything other than kneel down or assume garbage time duties, something has gone horribly wrong. At that point of dire hopelessness, there’s a minimum accepted standard: competence. Blaine Gabbert hasn’t shown he’s capable of even that in San Francisco. He didn’t demonstrate competence in Jacksonville either,...
