    The San Francisco 49ers have five outside linebackers who matter: Aldon Smith, Aaron Lynch, Ahmad Brooks, Eli Harold and Corey Lemonier.All five probably won’t make the team, though. The Niners need no more than four, considering no more than three typically play in a game. But the Niners probably can’t cut any of their top five outside linebackers.You could make an argument for cutting third-year outside linebacker Corey Lemonier, who has done next to nothing so far in his career. But the Niners spent a third-round pick on him in 2013. They can’t give up on him yet. As long as he’s…

Players like Bernie Kosar, Cris Carter and Ahmad Brooks have all entered the NFL this way.It’s also generally a huge anti-climax.

His 84.186 percent career average of field goals made ranks 14th all time, according to Pro-Football-Reference.com.But he’s older and starting to lose power.

    San Francisco 49ers: What Can We Expect from Carlos Hyde in Year 2?

    When I published a list of stat projections for players on the San Francisco 49ers Monday, the most optimistic prediction was easily the one for Carlos Hyde. The second-year player could top 1,000 yards on only 200 carries, boosting his yards per carry attempt up to 5.0.  That would have placed him fifth in the NFL among running backs last season, behind only Justin Forsett, Lamar Miller, Jeremy Hill and Jamaal Charles.  It would also be only the 18th time a San Francisco 49er has topped the 5.0 yards per carry mark, and the first since Frank Gore in 2006.This is obviously a very optimis…

  • 49ers wideout Torrey Smith weighs in on the Confederate flag controversy
    Since the tragic shooting in Charleston, South Carolina a large part of the country is debating about whether or not it’s appropriate for southern states to fly the Confederate flag in public places.A number of NFL athletes have voiced their opinions on the matter, including San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Torrey Smith.Here’s what Smith said last week about the flag:But the flag doesn't have anything to do with race…it's about southern pride (sarcasm) https://t.co/WoFuKRtk1R— Torrey Smith (@TorreySmithWR) June 30, 2015How many? 10? https://t.co/8HEuX43i98— Torrey Smith (…

  • Is Jim Tomsula of the 49ers really the least powerful head coach in the league?
    The San Francisco 49ers are starting to look like the Rodney Dangerfield of the NFL: nobody is giving them any respect.Not only has no 49ers player appeared on the NFL Network’s Top 100 list so far, but NFL.com is ranking Jim Tomsula dead last in their latest head coach power rankings.Here’s what Elliot Harrison wrote on Tomsula:“Tomsula is our caboose, mostly because he inherited the worst situation. It’s not like the 49ers are devoid of talent, but this has been an offseason of turmoil. Unlike the other rookie head coaches, Tomsula is following a guy in Jim Harbaugh who manifested…

    The San Francisco 49ers have had a difficult offseason to put it mildly. They lost four star players to retirement, fired their head coach and lost some key players in free agency. The talk around the NFL is that the 49ers will be in the basement of the NFC West and have no chance in competing for a Super Bowl.Wide receiver Anquan Boldin has heard the critics, but is not concerned with what they are saying. He would rather let his play on the field do the talking."We hear the chatter outside, coming from every angle. But that doesn't determine whether or not we win football games," Boldin to…

    It is finally July.  After months of waiting we can now say (without fudging on the dates) that training camp starts this month. Despite the fact that the offseason seems interminable, we’ll have a steady stream of actual football starting in a little over three weeks.  Training camps across the NFL are great drama if you know what to watch for.For established starters, training camp is little more than practice, but for rookies, both undrafted and drafted alike, and backups training camp is more accurately described as a month long tryout.  You get a handful of padded practices and f…

  • Putting the 49ers recent history of player arrests in perspective
    Two days after being arrested in a domestic violence case, former San Francisco 49ers lineman Ray McDonald was arrested again on May 27, this time on a charge of violating a restraining order, police said. So how do we put the 49ers’ 11 arrests by seven players since 2012 into perspective? First, the 49ers’ pattern follows the league overall, which typically shows that a handful of players repeatedly getting in the trouble. For example, Aldon Smith and former 49er Ray McDonald account for six of the 11 arrests. Also, some of the players who have been arrested are no longer with the team in…
