In these articles, I will share basic information for fans to read to gain a light understanding of the draft for their team. ...

Should the San Francisco 49ers pursue a WR in free agency?

If the NFL truly is a pass-happy league, then there are two parts to making that equation work. First, a team has to have a good quarterback; without someone to throw the ball to the right place at the right time, nothing else about the passing game will work. But second, a franchise must have people on the receiving end of those passes who can make plays; without teammates to catch...

The Chicago Bears are the only team with top five offensive and defensive coordinators

It’s not quite worst to first, but the Chicago Bears hiring of coordinators Vic Fangio and Adam Gase is the closest emulation of such a notion in recent memory of the NFL. Gase’s group in Denver was fourth in the league in total offense last year, with 403/YPG. This is a significant step from former Bears’ OC Aaron Kromer, who led the league in egregious media leaks and whose...

Front Office Insider: What's wrong with Jim Harbaugh's offense?

The San Francisco 49ers' struggles on offense have as much to do with identity as they do with execution. Over the past three seasons, the 49ers had the most rushing attempts and fewest passing plays of any team in the league. But this year that changed. In an ever-evolving league where the passing game has become more and more important, Harbaugh and coordinator Greg Roman wanted...

Stevie Johnson: The ‘X-Factor’ in Waiting

If Stevie Johnson is frustrated with his limited role, he certainly isn’t showing it. The veteran wide receiver caught zero passes in the San Francisco 49ers 17-13 win over the Washington Redskins on Sunday, which marked the first time since 2009 that he’s gone an entire game without making a catch—a streak that stretched 70 games. On Monday in the locker room, when a reporter...

Manning Makes History As Broncos Roll Past San Francisco 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers were on the wrong side of history on Sunday night in Denver. Peyton Manning uncorked four touchdown passes to break the all-time NFL record. The 49ers were also on the wrong side of the scoreline, as the Denver Broncos cruised to a 42-17 win. Manning carved up a depleted 49ers’ defense, as the veteran signal caller was 22-for-26 and racked up 318 yards....

In a cruel bit of pigskin déjà vu, the Rams again let an early lead slip through their fingers in a 31-17 Monday Night Football loss to the visiting San Francisco 49ers. The team shot out to a 14-0 point first quarter advantage reminiscent to the 21-0 lead earned against the Cowboys in the week prior to their bye.

49ers throttle Rams 31-17 for 3rd straight win

ST. LOUIS (AP) The 49ers had Austin Davis on the run. San Francisco counterpart Colin Kaepernick had all day.

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Lloyd has been somewhat of an afterthought thus far this season. After sitting out the entire 2013 campaign, Lloyd was a long shot to make the roster when he signed in the offseason. And through the first four games of the regular year, he didn’t make much of an impact. That changed on Sunday against the Kansas City Chiefs. Lloyd led the...

Kaepernick's Mental Mistakes Manifest

You don't have to have ever strapped on a pair of football shoulder pads to know common sense. Common sense tells a quarterback to throw the ball away rather than run out of bounds for a five yard loss (a.k.a. a sack for the defense). It is a pretty pathetic play when a quarterback runs out of bounds with time to throw the ball away and the question has to be asked, “who gets credit...

Greg Roman: Mad Scientist or Just Plain Mad?

San Francisco's offensive coordinator Greg Roman has often been referred to as the “mad scientist”, but each year many seem to question his play calling abilities. While the 49ers have been tremendously successful since Roman arrived, his play calling is often fairly scrutinized.
