Joe Staley makes PFF’s top-10 players over 35

Joe Staley makes PFF’s top-10 players over 35

Over 35 and he’s still one of the best left tackles in the league. The San Francisco 49ers are one of the younger teams in the league, but that doesn’t mean they are lacking in veteran leadership. They have cornerback Richard Sherman helping out on the secondary and left tackle Joe Staley continuing to play at a high level on the offensive line. This is rather impressive on it’s own, but it’s made more so by the fact Staley is over 35 years of age. The folks over at Pro Football Focus put together a top-10 list of the best players over 35. While it’s top-10 in name, there...

49ers Academy Challenge Campaign for East Palo Alto Students

49ers Academy Challenge Campaign for East Palo Alto Students

Approximately 87% of students in East Palo Alto under the age of 18 live in poverty. If there’s one thing I truly enjoy shining some light on, it’s the 49ers’ off-the-field efforts. Right now, the 49ers Academy has a campaign raising funds to make an impact on the lives of East Palo Alto high school students. East Palo Alto is one of the most economically and socially stressed cities in the San Francisco Bay Area. 87% of students in EPA under the age of 18 live in poverty. The success of tech companies in Silicon Valley has caused a major shift in gentrification of East Palo Alto and...

How improved do you think the 49ers are this offseason?

How improved do you think the 49ers are this offseason?

They already weren’t a bad team, just an unlucky one. Ladies and Gentleman, we have our 2019 San Francisco 49ers. At least until we get to the 53-man roster. Sure, there may be some additional free agent acquisitions here and there (especially with Jimmie Ward fracturing his collarbone), but we have seen needs addressed and a team geting stronger. The question is, how improved do you think they are? The folks over at Sports Illustrated’s MMQB put together a list of the most improved teams in the 2019 offseason and put the 49ers on the list. Robert Klemko was the one who wrote the...

Golden Nuggets: Should Tarvarius Moore play Safety?

Golden Nuggets: Should Tarvarius Moore play Safety?

San Francisco 49ers links for Saturday, May 25, 2019 With Jimmie Ward back on the wagon (off the wagon?) with a broken collarbone, the Niners are already back to the Adrian Colbert/Antone Exum Jr. combo of 2018. And while there may still be plenty of potential there with Colbert, he didn’t perform well when healthy last year, and he has a bit of an injury history of his own. Another option might be DJ Reed who filled in at FS for a couple of games last year, but both he and the coaches seem to be more comfortable with him playing in the slot. And so, barring a late free agent pick up,...

Kyle Juszczyk explains why the 49ers early bye week is beneficiary to the team

Kyle Juszczyk explains why the 49ers early bye week is beneficiary to the team

“You don’t realize how much training camp really takes out of you early in that season” When the San Francisco 49ers 2019 schedule was released a little over a month ago, there were a few initial complaints. The early start times. The brutal final month, and the early bye week. 49ers fullback Kyle Jusczcyk was on 95.7 The Game Thursday and had an interesting takeaway about the teams’ Week 4 bye week. Here’s what he had to say: ”As an NFL player, the first thing that I look at when I get the schedule is I look for when is our bye week? That was what really kind of jumped out to...

49ers 90-in-90: S Adrian Colbert

49ers 90-in-90: S Adrian Colbert

Breaking down the 90 players on the 49ers offseason roster in 90 posts (over 90 or so days). Today is safety Adrian Colbert. On the heels of Jimmie Ward breaking his collarbone, it only makes sense that we talk about San Francisco 49ers 2017 seventh-round draft pick Adrian Colbert. You never go into a season depending on a player drafted as late as Colbert. For the second year in a row, Colbert should see a significant amount of snaps. He played 320 in 2018. Depending on whether the 49ers make any moves, that number should double this year. Colbert was a fan favorite last year, and that has...

2 trade options at free safety for the 49ers

2 trade options at free safety for the 49ers

There are two names out there that might intrigue the Niners There was always going to be risk involved with bringing back safety Jimmie Ward. The former 2014 first-round draft pick of the San Francisco 49ers has ended up on the injured reserve four out of five seasons. On Thursday, Ward reportedly broke his collarbone. You can look at this from a couple of perspectives. On the one hand, the injury is out of the way now, and Ward should be ready by the time the preseason rolls around. On the other hand, if it happened now diving after a football, why won’t it happen again with his...

Raheem Mostert addresses his absence at OTAs

Raheem Mostert addresses his absence at OTAs

Many feared the worst when Mostert didn’t show up at 49ers OTAs. The running back and special teams ace took to instagram to update everyone on his rehab from a broken arm. Raheem Mostert hasn’t been at 49ers OTAs and many may have assumed the worst. After all, Mostert broke his arm all the way back in November of 2018 against the Oakland Raiders and had to have follow-up procedures to make sure it healed right. Fear not, Mostert may not be at OTAs, but he’ll be there for training camp. That’s not from us, that’s from Mostert himself. The 49ers running back went to Instagram to...

Jimmie Ward to undergo surgery, be ready for training camp

The 49ers took a huge hit on Thursday with Jimmie Ward going down with a broken clavicle. He’ll be ready for training camp. San Francisco 49ers free safety Jimmie Ward went down with a broken collarbone, Thursday but he should be back by training camp. The 49ers oft-injured safety went down Thursday while diving for a ball and almost immediately reports surfaced that it was his collarbone. Per Ian Rapoport, Ward will go into surgery on Friday and should be out 8-12 weeks. And so, Ward’s time for OTAs comes to an end. Given the timeline, that should get him into training camp. At the...

Golden Nuggets: The sky is falling

San Francisco 49ers links for Friday, May 24, 2019 Nick Bosa has a hamstring strain and Jimmy Ward broke his collarbone. Did anyone really think the 49ers were going to be able to rely on Ward being around to play free safety this season even before he broke his collarbone? The chances of either Ward or Jason Verrett making it all of the way through the 2019 season have always been pretty slim and the chances of both of them making it are pretty astronomical based on their past injury history. I have a hard time panicking over Ward breaking his collarbone when I never thought we could...
