Joe Staley makes one less fortunate family's dream come true

A simple gesture by the 49ers offensive tackle became the event of a lifetime for a fan. Colin Kaepernick has Camp Taylor, Anquan Boldin has the Q81 foundation, and Joe Staley? He just ventures out and looks for good people to give things to. A story by Daniel Brown came out on Friday describing an adventure of the curious San Francisco 49ers tackle. He had a pair of Super Bowl tickets, but rather than use them himself, he decided to find a stranger "in need of a break in life". He asked friends and eventually selected Johnel Spivey, a single father from Santa Clara. Spivey has a daughter...

Blaine Gabbert has begun watching Chip Kelly Eagles, Oregon film

Who knows if it will be enough to secure the starting quarterback job, but Blaine Gabbert certainly has a chance. The San Francisco 49ers will have some kind of quarterback competition this offseason, but it remains to be seen who all the participants will be. We can say with almost absolute certainty that Blaine Gabbert will be part of this group, and odds are pretty good that Dylan Thompson will at least get a chance to compete in training camp. Beyond that? Well, we don't know where Colin Kaepernick will be, and we don't know what kind of free agent money or draft assets the team might...

Michael Crabtree hopes Colin Kaepernick 'gets better, and I hope he get in those books, and watch that film, and know what he doing out there'

Welp, Michael Crabtree had some things to say about Colin Kaepernick. Michael Crabtree is in town for the Super Bowl, and is making the rounds of the media. He made an appearance on Jason Whitlock's FOX show, and got a question about Colin Kaepernick. It was an odd, but possibly predictable sequence. Whitlock asked him about Kap, and Crabtree immediately started talking about Derek Carr with a little smile on his face. Jason McIntyre from The Big Lead was there as well and managed to get him to at least acknowledge the subject of Kaepernick and his time with the 49ers. You can watch the...

New Jersey reporter Dom Cosentino followed that with his own source saying there was nothing to Mehta's report. On Wednesday, Jason LaCanfora had his on thoughts on the situation.
