49ers will not be busy at NFL trade deadline with in-house options returning

49ers will not be busy at NFL trade deadline with in-house options returning

The San Francisco 49ers will welcome back several key components over the next month and a half. That likely means the team will not be too active in advance of next Tuesday's trade deadline. The NFL trade deadline arrives next Tuesday, and is easily the lightest of the four major North American professional sports leagues. The hard salary cap and the depth of the playbook cuts down on the number of impact trades during the season. The NFL already has a fairly limited number of offseason player-for-player trades, so mixing in the in-season issues of dealing football players, and it just...

Golden Nuggets: Reinforcements cannot possibly arrive soon enough

Golden Nuggets: Reinforcements cannot possibly arrive soon enough

Thursday, October 23, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web. Good morning everyone, or is it still bad morning? I'm not sure how I feel myself, and the cocky and obnoxious Bronco fan that lives down the street is not helping matters. Anyways, Sunday Night was not fun at all. To be honest, I switched over to Walking Dead after it was 42-10. It was the first time I hadn't finished a non preseason game in probably a decade, and a lot of that was the dark ages of Erickson, Nolan, and Singletary. What I noticed watching the game and has been...

What do you think the 49ers drubbing in Denver means?

(Photo by Doug Pensinger/)If ESPN analyst and former 49ers quarterback Trent Dilfer thinks the 49ers look toxic in a win, wait until he sees the 49ers’ 42-17 drubbing in Denver. Many players looked either lost or disinterested or both. How to digest the team’s seeming lack of effort depends on your point of view. There’s the realist’s take and that is the 49ers...

Visions of epic comeback spurred Harbaugh to stick with Kaepernick

Jim Harbaugh, known as Captain Comeback in his playing days, took the concept to another level Sunday night in Denver — at least in his own head. This comeback attempt was a lot to ask of Colin Kaepernick. (AP photo) The 49ers trailed 42-10 when they took possession at their own 13-yard-line with 11:22 left. Colin Kaepernick trotted onto the field, with a makeshift offensive line. It seemed curious to keep Kaepernick in the game at that point, given the risk of injury and the Broncos’ comfortable lead. As it turns out, Harbaugh thought the 49ers still had a chance. Yes, to win. “I was...
