Reports around the NFL are saying that Aldon Smith may be able to have his suspension reduced a game or two for good behavior and if so could be back after the 49ers bye week.

Both Chris Mortensen and John Clayton are confirming reports that the reduction could take place. However, Jim Harbaugh and Trent Baalke have both said they have not heard anything from the league office about a possible reduction in games.

49ers Don’t Show up in Denver http://49ersnews.com/2014/10/49ers-dont-show-denver/ http://49ersnews.com/2014/10/49ers-dont-show-denver/#comments Mon, 20 Oct 2014 03:25:10 +0000 http://49ersnews.com/?p=9094 The 49ers fall flat in Denver as Peyton Manning embarrasses the defense with four touchdown passes.

The 49ers dropped their third game of the season and gave up four touchdown passes to Peyton Manning, who now holds the record for career touchdown passes.

Anyway it was an ugly game. The 49ers had some chances but just couldn’t take advantage of it. Dropped passes and not being able to stop Manning killed them.

I’m not gonna spend to much time talking about the game, mainly cause I’m not pleased. It is always tough to go against Peyton Manning and when you don’t have Patrick Willis, NaVorro Bowman or Aldon Smith in the game, it’s not gonna be easy.

The 49ers head into their by week at 4-3 and have a favorable schedule coming out of bye. They should get some of their injured players back. Need to just put this game behind them, get healthy and go from there.

No real news of note, except the injuries continue to add up. Along with Willis, Bowman, Ward, Culliver and Iupati out. They also lost Chris Cook and Daniel Kilgore this game. Damn the injuries are really piling up.

Kaepernick Shines Again on Monday Night http://49ersnews.com/2014/10/kaepernick-shines-monday-night/ http://49ersnews.com/2014/10/kaepernick-shines-monday-night/#comments Tue, 14 Oct 2014 04:08:42 +0000 http://49ersnews.com/?p=9089 Colin Kaepernick had another big Monday Night game. He finished 22 of 36 for 343 yards and 3 touchdowns.

The 49ers came out and gave up 14 points to Austin Davis and the Rams. Early it felt like this was not gonna be a close game. But the 49ers defense tightened up and the offense started clicking. The game changing play was made with 15 seconds before halftime when Kaepernick hit Brandon Lloyd for an 80 yard touchdown reception.

After that it was all 49ers. They rolled off 24 unanswered points. Kaepernick threw two more touchdowns in the second half (Boldin and Crabtree) and finished the day 22 of 36 for 343 and 3 touchdowns. They 49ers had to go to the air cause the Rams shut down the 49ers run game.

Of course it wouldn’t be 49erlike if they didn’t let the Rams back in the game and give me yet another heart attack. Late when the 49ers could have sealed the game, they went for it twice on 4th down and failed to convert. A Dontae Johnson pick six in the last minute was what sealed the win.

Fun Facts:
– Colin Kaepernick is now 4-0 on Monday Night Football.
– Colin Kaepernick has throw a touchdown in 13 straight games.
– 49ers have won 7 games in a row on Monday Night.
– The 80 yard touchdown pass to Brandon Lloyd was the longest of Kaepernick’s career (college included)
– The last 80+ touchdown pass by a 49er was Brandon Lloyd back in 2005.
– The 80 yard touchdown pass was the first time since the AFL/NFL merger of a play that long in the last 15 seconds before halftime.
– Jim Harbaugh is 5-0 on Monday Night Football.
– Jim Harbaugh reached the 40 win mark. He is the 7th coach to have won at least 75% of games at time of 40th career win. Last: George Seifert.
– Three different 49ers receivers had a touchdown.
– Vance McDonald and Vernon Davis both dropped a touchdown pass in the endzone. (note: it was the same pass)
– This was 2nd largest deficit overcome in a win for Jim Harbaugh as 49ers coach.
– 49ers have 46 wins on Monday Night Football, two more than the Cowboys.

Not Fun Fact:
– The 49ers lost Patrick Willis, Jimmie Ward, Mike Iupati and Stevie Johnson to injury.

49ers Tickets Going For As Low As $6 For Matchup In St. Louis http://49ersnews.com/2014/10/49ers-tickets-going-low-6-matchup-st-louis/ http://49ersnews.com/2014/10/49ers-tickets-going-low-6-matchup-st-louis/#comments Sat, 11 Oct 2014 15:53:51 +0000 http://49ersnews.com/?p=9086 Rams vs 49ers tickets for this matchup have an average price of $74.57 on the secondary market with a get-in price of $6.

While there is tension and some drama concerning the status of San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh with the organization, the 49ers have managed to play well as they will travel to the Edward Jones Dome to take on the St. Louis Rams on Monday Night Football. The 49ers come into this game looking for their third straight win while trying to hand St. Louis its third straight loss after almost coming back from 34-7 down to the Philadelphia Eagles.

Rams vs 49ers tickets for this matchup have a current average price of $74.57 on the secondary market with a get-in price of $6. That average is 24% below the season average in St. Louis this season.

The 49ers (3-2) have rebounded well since suffering consecutive losses to Chicago and Arizona by defeating the Eagles and Chiefs at home. San Francisco is third in the NFL in rushing as their running back Frank Gore has rushed for 365 yards this season with 226 of them coming from his last two contests. Colin Kaepernick has also played well throwing for 1,113 yards this season with 7 touchdowns.

Meanwhile, the St. Louis Rams would definitely like to avoid a third straight loss but have had quarterback issues since the start of the season. Austin Davis is now their starter after beginning the season as the third stringer on their depth chart, but was put in after Sam Bradford suffered a season ending injury with backup quarterback Shaun Hill also having to come out because of an injury. In Austin Davis’ last two contests he has played well throwing for six touchdowns and two interceptions in his past two games.

Jed York Speaks on Harbaugh Rumblings http://49ersnews.com/2014/10/jed-york-speaks-on-harbaugh-rumblings/ http://49ersnews.com/2014/10/jed-york-speaks-on-harbaugh-rumblings/#comments Mon, 06 Oct 2014 17:57:10 +0000 http://49ersnews.com/?p=9080 Jed York talks with Rich Eisen on his new show and discusses all the Jim Harbaugh chatter going on around the league.

Jed York was on the new Rich Eisen Show today and he discussed the rumblings going on regarding Jim Harbaugh not returning next season and how Jim is losing the locker room. Here is what Jed had to say.

When asked about the Jay Glazer report that Harbaugh will not be back next season regardless if they win a Super Bowl.

‘Categorically not true’ … ‘In terms of sustainability, every coach will move on at some point, and I don’t think Jim is at that point,’ … ‘We’ve had a great relationship here. We’ve had three pretty successful seasons so far.’

‘By 49ers standards, unless you’re holding a Lombardi Trophy up, it’s not truly a successful season. We all know that and understand that.’

York also talked about the so called tension between Harbaugh and General Manager Trent Baalke.

‘Jim and Trent work fairly well together,’ … ‘The results speak for themselves. And they’re very professional with each other. That’s really all I can ask for.’

‘Jim does a great job letting Trent and the scouts go out and find players,’ … ‘We’ve added some good talent to this team over the last four or five years. They work together, in that sense. Trent has never been a coach and has no aspirations of coaching. I’ve been in situations where that was the case here, I wasn’t working here at the time, when you have a former coach as a general manager, that can be dicey. That’s not how it is here.’

And finally York discussed the negotiations with Harbaugh regarding a new contract.

‘We’re going to sit down and talk about his contract right after the season is over,’ … ‘Both of us came to that conclusion, that it doesn’t make sense to try to negotiate a contract in the middle of the season.’

‘We’re focused on getting back to and winning the Super Bowl. That’s really the only thing that’s on anybody’s mind here. … I’ve said this all along: I would like for nothing else to be in the worst negotiating position possible with Jim.’

First off I just want to thank Perrish Cox for his second straight game winning interception and also thank Alex Smith for throwing his first road interception in 267 pass attempts.

The 49ers had to make it yet again another close game, not sure how much longer my hear can take it. The Chiefs came out firing on all cylinders and looked like their offense could not be stopped, but the defense came up huge once again when the team and the fans needed it.

From what I saw it didn’t appear that Colin Kaepernick had a great game, some of his throws were off, but he didn’t turn the ball over and I guess you could say managed the game well. The difference once again was the run game led by Frank Gore, who finished with 107 yards on 18 carries.

On the defensive side of the ball the defense held Alex Smith under 200 yards and the tandem of Jamaal Charles and Knile Davis under 100. Again, it wasn’t pretty to start but they made adjustments and made the stops needed to get the win.

Fun Facts:
– Again, Alex Smith threw his first road interception in 267 passes, could not have come at a better time.
– Jim Harbaugh is now 11-1 in the month of October.
– The 49ers had a successful fake punt which put the 49ers in the lead for good.
– Phil Dawson was 5 for 5 on Field Goals.
– Colin Kaepernick threw another touchdown pass. That is 16 consecutive games throwing a touchdown.
– Brandon Lloyd had another circus catch, which was what kept the game winning FG drive alive.

The San Francisco 49ers will be looking for just their second home win of the year in Week 5, when they welcome the Kansas City Chiefs to town. Kansas City (2-2) is fresh off a demolition of Tom Brady and the New England Patriots on Monday Night Football, and will enter the Bay Area with a healthy Jamaal Charles, as well as a chip on their shoulder. And they’ll be coming in with former Niners quarterback Alex Smith.

As if this wasn’t already heated enough with two teams at 2-2 from opposite conferences, it will also have an epic showdown between Smith and the guy who replaced him – Colin Kaepernick. Smith naturally will want to try to out-gun Kap, while he also may be out to prove head coach Jim Harbaugh picked the wrong quarterback two years ago. All of that understandably adds up for one heck of a value this week, as 49ers vs Chiefs tickets come in at an extremely cheap $229.05 on average, 35.6% below the season average for 49ers tickets at home, considering everything involved. The $92 get-in price makes it the only remaining game at Levi’s Stadium with a ticket under $100.

As interesting as the Smith vs. 49ers storyline is, it’s not likely to be what rules this game. San Francisco has gotten back to it’s roots as a run-first team that leans on a balanced defense. At least that’s the recipe that worked last week, as Frank Gore ran the ball over 20 times and got more involved in the passing game (two receiving scores) than we’ve seen in quite some time.

Gore may be an aging commodity, but he’s easily what still makes the Niners’ offense hum. It also doesn’t hurt that the weakness to KC’s defense is their run defense, so a heavy dose of Gore should be applied to this Week 5 battle. As big of a deal as the 49ers’ rushing attack is in this one, it’s an even bigger deal for the Chiefs. Kansas City has been running the ball extremely well, but it’s hard to buy them continuing to do so against a top-five run defense on the road. If they can’t, the Niners should have little trouble controlling this one and nabbing the win.

Where they stand: Harbaugh and the Locker Room Drama http://49ersnews.com/2014/09/where-they-stand-harbaugh-and-the-locker-room-drama/ http://49ersnews.com/2014/09/where-they-stand-harbaugh-and-the-locker-room-drama/#comments Mon, 29 Sep 2014 23:59:01 +0000 http://49ersnews.com/?p=9065 Jim Harbaugh, Alex Boone and Antoine Bethea chime in on the report from Deion Sanders that players are getting tired of Harbaugh.

After yesterday’s victory over the Philadelphia Eagles, NFL Analyst Deion Sanders said the players are getting fed up with Jim Harbaugh, during Sunday’s NFL GameDay Final.

‘They want him out. They’re not on the same page’

Deion wasn’t the only one who flapped his gums, earlier this morning Trent Dilfer was on ESPN Radio and he had this to say.

I do think it’s become almost toxic.

So of course during Harbaugh’s press conference today the beat writers asked Harbaugh about him losing the locker room and what was said by Sanders. Harbaugh responded.

Uhh… Personally, I think that’s a bunch of crap.

Harbaugh wasn’t the only one who called the talk crap. Antoine Bethea was on The Doug Gotlieb Show on CBS Radio and he disagreed with Sanders report.

‘Nah, man we’re a family and it’s all about the guys in that locker room,’…’That’s all it’s about. Everybody in the locker room is trying to go out there and win. We’re a family. Outsiders, we’ll let them say what they say.’

Along with Bethea, Alex Boone also chimed in. During a radio appearance on 95.7 the Game, he basically reiterated what Harbaugh said about Dilfer and Sanders being full of crap.
‘Last I checked I was in the locker room and it was all smiles, and everybody was happy,’…’Nobody was saying we want him out. I know for a fact everybody loves Harbaugh.’…’He’s a great guy, a great coach. How could you not want to win for a guy that wears cleats during a game? Have you not seen that guy’s energy. He’s exciting 24/7. You’ve got to love playing for a guy like that. That’s what’s football is all about.’

Boone’s response after hearing Dilfer talk about ‘spitball’ offense and ‘almost toxic’ environment.

‘I’m confused. Guys are slouching around and it’s toxic? Those are words that should never be used,’ … I don’t get it. … We don’t worry about everybody on the outside, especially people that talk nonsense like that.’ … ‘What’s the problem. I’m confused. Is winning not good? Is business not booming right now boys?’ … ‘Here’s my problem with all this: if you’re not in our locker room, then keep the 49ers name out of your mouth, because you have no idea what goes on in our locker room.’

Of course Deion couldn’t keep quiet after the coach and players responded.
