Vernon Davis had an interesting ‘Throwback Thursday’ on Instagram

Surely you remember Mike Singletary’s phenomenal Vernon Davis rant in 2008. How can you not? It was the crowning moment of what was otherwise a disappointing tenure as 49ers coach. Since Mt. Rushmores are all the rage in sports these days, you could absolutely say it deserves at least consideration to be right up there next to Jim Mora and Dennis Green on the Mr. Rushmore of NFL...

Vernon Davis nails cameraman with bouquet toss at Olympics (Video)

Vernon Davis is currently at the Olympics in Sochi as the honorary captain for the U.S. Curling Team (because of course). The 49ers tight end was in attendance for the Ice Dancing finals Monday and wanted to show some love for American sibling skaters Maia and Alex Shibutani by throwing a bouquet of flowers on the ice. But as you’ll see the flowers ended up well short of the rink...

LeBron James game-winning step-back 3 vs. Warriors (Video)

When Stephen Curry put the Warriors up two with 14 seconds and change left in the game, you probably had a feeling that was too much time for LeBron to do magical things. You were right. LeBron milked the clock before busting a step-back 3-pointer, even with Andre Iguodala in his face, and leaving a mere 0.2 seconds on the clock. In case you had forgotten, LeBron James is cold-blooded...

Super Bowl XLVIII prediction

Honestly, I could go either way with this game. I’ve admired both teams all season long. They’re both deserving of the chance to play in this game. I’ve enjoyed watching the historic season Peyton Manning has put together (mostly because I had him in fantasy), and I’ve SURE AS HELL enjoyed watching Richard Sherman these last few weeks (mostly because he makes a lot of people...

WATCH: Joe Thornton undresses Corey Crawford on shootout goal

Joe Thornton never heard his name called for a shootout for three seasons before the current campaign. Now he’s three-for-three in shootout goals this year, and after laying waste to Corey Crawford with a beautiful toe-drag move in the Sharks 2-1 shootout win over the Blackhawks last night, he might be getting the skills competition call more often. Observe: One more time: I...

Colin Kaepernick calls out Richard Sherman and it’s awesome

Colin Kaepernick is notorious for being short and not-very-sweet with the media. But when the topic turned to Richard Sherman today talking to various Super Bowl media in New York, Kaepernick held nothing back. You can tell this dude plain doesn’t like Sherman. Here’s a roundup of some of what was said: On Sherman calling Michael Crabtree “mediocre”: “I feel like it was...

Rod Streater stars in Beats by Dre commercial parody (Video)

Those Beats by Dre commercials featuring Colin Kaepernick and Kevin Garnett and Richard Sherman have become commonplace on your TV sets for the last month or so. You know the ones I’m talking about—said athletes throw on uber-expensive headphones to drown out hostile fans or irritating reporters while that “Wake Me Up” guy ruins a classic Elton John hook. Raiders wide out...

‘Secret’ Raiderette handbook leaks and it’s pretty jaw-dropping

Ever since the Raiders were slapped with a class-action lawsuit by the Raiderettes over unfair wages, the team, as well as NFL cheerleading as a whole, has been under the microscope. As such, something glorious has occurred. The LA Times says it has gotten its hands on the “super-secret” Raiderette handbook, and it is nothing short of AMAZING. We already got an idea as to what...

Former Lion Jahvid Best to sue NFL over concussions

Roger Goodell and the NFL have another concussion lawsuit to deal with. This time it comes courtesy of former Lions and Cal running back Jahvid Best. Concussions forced the once-promising Best, a 2010 first-round pick by the Lions, to retire from the NFL last year, and on Tuesday he took legal action against the NFL, as well as helmet manufacturer Riddell, because of them.

Hertl has been out since undergoing surgery as a result Brown’s shady move and a timetable for his return is still uncertain. Brown has insisted that...

Richard Sherman regrets getting in Michael Crabtree’s face

It’s been a little over a week since Richard Sherman made that glorious NFC Championship-ending tip play, sending the 49ers packing, and immediately confronted Michael Crabtree, only to be shoved away in the face by his nemesis. Since then, Sherman has had time to reflect on his actions, and he’s come to the conclusion that, ya know, maybe getting in the face of Crabtree, in...

Mel Kiper: Raiders 2013 draft worse than initially thought

You won’t find a lot of people today who think the Raiders 2013 draft class — the second under GM Reggie McKenzie — was a resounding success. LB Sio Moore (third round) and TE Mychal Rivera (sixth round) were the lone bright spots in the class, while all that shows for the rest of the class is a bunch of injuries, ineffectiveness and time spent on the waiver wire or practice...

When we last saw Brandon Jacobs ’round these parts he was being released by the 49ers last season before the playoffs, not long after being suspended by the team for going on social media and essentially calling Jim Harbaugh a ***** for his lack of playing time. But Jacobs has gone and done it now. He’s actually called Jim Harbaugh “a *****.” Oops, sorry, earmuffs! But, yeah...

Over 10 years have passed since that stain on Raiders history, the Tuck Rule game, happened. Since then, the Raiders have become a real-life version of a LifeCall commercial. Oh, and adding insult to injury, the Tuck Rule has gone the way of the dodo. Meantime, slightly better fortunes for Tom Brady.
