Why Colin Kaepernick should start and Alex Smith should walk

While I’m not stating the following post WILL happen, I do believe there remains the possibility of it becoming reality, not matter how slim.

The 49ers moved up in the 2nd round of last year’s draft to select Colin Kaepernick with the 36th (2nd/4th) overall selection. He is a West Coast-type athlete from the University of Nevada, leading his team to a 13-win season as a senior and one of a nearly empty list of college quarterbacks who have thrown for 10,000 yards and rushed for 4,000 in their college careers. Additionally, he became only the third quarterback in NCAA history to throw for 3,000 yards and rush for 1,000 yards in a single season. Colin was drafted 1 pick behind Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton. Continue reading “Why Colin Kaepernick should start and Alex Smith should walk” Why Colin Kaepernick shou…

Randy Moss working out as a 49er?

Am I the only San Francisco 49er fan that doesn’t want to see Randy Moss dress up in the red & gold?

I do not feel as if an aged veteran, arguably the 2nd best wide receiver in the history of football, has a place on the 49ers. Sure, SF lost to the (eventual Super Bowl winning) New York Giants with only 1 pass for 3 yards to a receiver. It’s common knowledge that Jed York, Jim Harbaugh, Trent Balke, and company will be looking for a few wideouts before the season starts. But folks, let’s go young. Let’s train rookies or go with some younger free agents.  Continue reading “Randy Moss working out as a 49er?” Randy Moss working out as…

Welcome to the new Santa Clara Raiders stadium!

Wait. What?

That’s right. The new 49ers stadium in Santa Clara next to Great America may be shared with the Oakland Raiders. I’ve posted about the new stadium back in April and June of last year – but it appears that since both teams need a new stadium, Santa Clara may house both teams. The New York Jets and Giants do it, so why not here in the bay area? These teams are used to sharing the field with the A’s and San Francisco  Giants anyhow, right?

“We’ve put our teams together,” 49ers Chief Executive Jed York said late Monday at an event for NFL fans in Los Angeles. “It doesn’t mean we’re going to find the right deal that fits for both teams, but we’re certainly going to get a look at those options.”

The Raiders appear amenable to a partnership. “We have said repeatedly that we have an open mind with respect to our stadium solution,” said Raiders chief executive Amy Trask, also on hand for the “NFL 101” event, held at the Los Angeles Coliseum. “An open mind means an open mind as to sharing a facility with the 49ers. I say to Jed regularly that we should have not only an open mind to the sharing of the facility, but to the location of the facility which we might share. And so there are a lot of options for us to consider.”  Continue reading “Welcome to the new Santa Clara Raiders stadium!” Welcome to the new Santa …
