Vic’s picks against the spread Week 9

What a glorious week for sports. What a dominant, inspiring performance … Wait, you think we’re talking about Madison Bumgarner? No, Colt McCoy, leading Washington to the cover, the outright win and capping off our 9-6 week. Mad Bum was ok, too. Saints (-3.5) at Panthers – Never like siding with every other clown holding a betting slip, but there is no reason side with Carolina here. New Orleans’ offense is finally clicking. SAINTS Rams at 49ers (-10) – Two weeks of Harbaugh barking about blowout loss to Broncos. Just thinking about how annoying that would be gets me wanting to hit...

Greg Roman: Vernon Davis has a very focused glare on what he wants to accomplish from here on out

Tight end Vernon Davis is off to one of the slowest starts in his 49ers career. He s also enduring one of his most injury riddled seasons.

Greg Roman: “Don’t buy into the fact that we’re really doing that many more things. We’re probably doing less things.”

SANTA CLARA — Here is the transcript of Greg Roman’s Thursday press conference, courtesy of the 49ers’ P.R. department. Opening comments: “Good afternoon. First of all, congratulations to the Giants. What a game, huh? Some high drama there at the end. What they’ve done is pretty remarkable. I know the city’s just pretty excited, as […]

Vic Fangio: “I didn’t do a good enough job coaching and we didn’t do a good enough job playing.”

Stevie Johnson on Giants World Series win and 49ers hopes: Sure puts some pressure on us

San Francisco native Stevie Johnson beamed with hometown pride Thursday inside the 49ers locker room, savoring the Giants World Series triumph and gaining more inspiration.

Johnson on modest role: ‘It’s not like there’s a bunch of pansies in front of me’

As the No. 3 wideout, he’s played just 31 percent of the offensive snaps and has logged fewer than 20 snaps in four of seven games. Given his pedigree – Johnson has three 1,000-yard seasons since 2010 – it sounds like a recipe for a disgruntled player, but Johnson appears to be an anti-diva.
