I recently had a chance to send some questions over to David Fucillo of ninersnation.com. I asked 10 questions regarding some of the San Francisco 49ers hottest topics right now. THF: What are your thoughts on Vernon Davis’ holdout? How do you think it effects the 49ers, and more specifically Colin Kaepernick moving forward? DF: For now I’m not overly concerned. If he skips mandatory minicamp, I grow a little more concerned. If he’s not there to open training camp, then it becomes a problem. Davis is the team’s biggest deep threat at...

ST. LOUIS – The Giants got out of last night’s game unscathed – barely. In a game that appeared to be going in the Cardinals favor for more than half the game, the G-men found a way to win as they have been all season. Their win total is the best in MLB right now, still. With 35 wins, even though early, it appears that they could be on course for the playoffs and another chance to step up in the playoffs and win their third World Series in 5-years. It may be getting way ahead of myself in saying that, but if the playoffs were to start...

49ers Vernon Davis And Alex Boone Holding Out From Voluntary OTA’s

49ers Vernon Davis And Alex Boone Holding Out From Voluntary OTA’s

SANTA CLARA – Much has been made of the recent developments in both Vernon Davis and Alex Boone wanting their deals to be restructured. With 2-years left on both contracts, both these guys feel that they deserve more money in comparison to their respective peers. With that said, I agree. I believe that both are at the top of their game at each of their positions. Starting with Alex Boone; he can play both guard positions and both tackle positions and has done so at a very high level. He is perhaps the best offensive lineman on the team. Not just due to...

OAKLAND – In what was a pitchers duel until the 9th inning between A’s, Scott Kazmir and Tigers, Anibal Sanchez, this game appeared to be going in Detroit’s favor. But the A’s are just one of those dangerous teams that are able to strike at anytime. And that’s precisely what happened. In the bottom of the 9th, the A’s were down 1-0 due to a Miguel Cabrera solo homer in the top of the 4th. The game stayed that way until the A’s had a final chance to settle the score. Due up was to be Sogard, Crisp, and Jaso. Manager...

On Friday, December 5th, 2014 two teams from the Pac-12 will face off to be crowned as Champion of the conference at the San Francisco 49ers new home Levi’s® Stadium. Last year, the Pac-12 Championship featured the Stanford Cardinal Vs. the Arizona State Sun Devils in which the Cardinal came out victorious (38-14). Though it was a home game for the Sun Devils, there clearly was no advantage for them throughout the game. That game marked the third Pac-12 Championship Game and was Stanford’s second victory in this game out of the three that have...

OAKLAND – The Oakland A’s headed in to last night’s game with the second best record in baseball with (31) wins and had a chance to stay 1-game behind the Giants for the best record in baseball. Now they are tied with the Blue Jays and the Milwaukee Brewers. The game last night was tight down to the very last out. The A’s headed in to the 7th inning leading 5-4 until in the top of the inning when pitcher, Dan Otero threw some batting practice to Tori Hunter that sailed over the fence for a solo homer tying the game. Though the Tigers...

SAN FRANCISCO – Though the San Francisco Giants have sustained a few significant injuries thus far in the season, they’ve managed to pull together and find ways to win ball games. In the first (51) games, the G-men have won 32 and only lost 19 of those. In the past 10-games, they’ve won six. With a seemingly average past 10-games, the Giants still have maintained a comfortable +4.5 on the Colorado Rockies. With it being an even year, it’s sort of uncanny that the Giants would be doing this well considering that in 2010 and 2012 the...

The San Francisco 49ers Cornerback Competition

The San Francisco 49ers Cornerback Competition

SAN FRANCISCO – The 49ers are in a very unique predicament in having to replace not one, but both starting cornerbacks from the 2013-2014 Season. We will take a look at the possibilities and outcome of the competition in this years camp battle at this position. It’s widely assumed that Tramaine Brock (who started the back half of the season last year due to injuries) will be the 49ers number one corner. And rightfully so. In just 7 games as a starter, Brock wound up with 5 interceptions. He is not the tallest corner in the league, or the most...

Kevin Hogan (Stanford) Or Jared Goff (Cal)? Who Would You Trust More?

To some extent, this question is almost like asking who would you take out of Matt Schaub (Raiders) or Colin Kaepernick (49ers) because they are two very different quarterbacks. However, because of that, it should make the question a lot easier to answer. We take a look at both and what they do well. Last year Cal quarterback, Jared Goff threw for over 3,500 yards, had 18 touchdowns, and 10 interceptions; not bad for a freshman year. It seems like Cal has not had a legit quarterback since Aaron Rodgers in 2004. At least I cannot recall anybody worthy of that...

Yesterday, we took a look at the Raiders potential offensive starters heading in to the 2014-2015 NFL Season. Today, we will turn it over to the defensive side of the ball. The Raiders made some [seemingly] very intelligent moves in free agency and through the draft. They added some key pieces to their secondary and shored up the front seven very well. Without further ado, let’s take a look at how I see things shaking out:         LDE: Lamarr Woodley, Jack Crawford LDT: Pat Sims, Stacy McGee RDT: Antonio Smith, Justin Ellis RDE:...
