49ERS RUMORS & GOSSIP

San Francisco 49ers get grossly overlooked in logo power rankings

It’s the symbol that represents a city and a franchise; it’s the mark that fans wear with pride, showing their allegiance to their favorite team. That’s what makes a logo important. And while every NFL team’s signature is recognizable, not all of them are created equal. Some are classic and iconic. Others are modern and cool. But a few are downright putrid, bastions from...

49ers Could Strike Gold With Latest Bold Move

The San Francisco 49ers have just signed a 27-year-old player with no NFL experience.

Do the San Francisco 49ers need to draft an interior lineman in the NFL Draft?

Glamorous. That’s not the word that comes to mind when thinking about players along the offensive line. And it’s especially not attributed to the guys in the middle of that group, the guards and center. While “skill-position” players get all of the headlines, and offensive tackles get the biggest contracts, interior linemen toil in relative anonymity. But in the center of...

Football demands youth spread throughout every roster, because older bodies have endured more punishment, and could break easily. This is not revolutionary thinking, but the salary cap dictates that finding veterans to plug into a specific role is a necessary front-office skill.

It’s over. The San Francisco 49ers watched their championship window shut on a tipped ball and an interception at Seattle in Jan. 2014. It seemed like a brutal setback at the moment. Instead, the sounds of cheers at CenturyLink Field was the chorus of San Francisco fading into contender oblivion. Last year, the 49ers went 8-8 before Jim Harbaugh and the franchise mutually parted...
