After the bye, an anti-Baalke banner will fly over Levi’s Stadium

It all started with a few tweets. Wait, no, it started a year ago when a group of 49ers fans paid for three banners to be flown above Levi’s Stadium. Three banners Jed York surely wouldn’t like. One said “JED & 49ERS SHOULD MUTUALLY PART WAYS.” Another was more concise, reading “HOLD JED ACCOUNTABLE.” And during the last game of the year this one flew through the...

Kelly gives 49ers week off for bye despite 6-game skid

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) Despite a defense on pace to be one of the worst in the NFL in years, an offense that has struggled to move the ball with any consistency and a six-game losing streak that is the longest for the franchise in eight years, San Francisco coach Chip Kelly gave his players the week off for the bye. After spending Monday going over the film from the latest loss...

Denials from coaches don’t mean Joe Thomas, Joe Staley won’t be traded

“We have no intent to trade Percy Harvin.” Remember that one? It came from Vikings G.M. Rick Spielman, not long before the team unloaded the mercurial wideout on a Seattle team that got limited use out of him before dumping him on the Jets for a bowl of soup. Granted, Spielman never said Harvin wouldn’t…

Kelly does not fully commit to Kaepernick as starting QB

However, head coach Chip Kelly isn’t ready to commit to a starter for Week 9 just yet. On Monday, Kelly told KNBR that he “would think” Kaepernick will remain San Francisco’s starter coming out of the bye. Chip Kelly tells KNBR...

Report: 49ers willing to trade LT Joe Staley

At 1-6 on the season and in the midst of a six-game losing streak, the San Francisco 49ers are embarrassing themselves on the field. With no real hope for that to change anytime soon, the team may already be looking to turn the page from what will likely end up being a lost season. It’s in this that every veteran with any sort of value should be on the chopping block. Those remaining...

Run game led by Rodgers helps lead Bucs past 49ers 34-17

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) Missing their top two running backs and trailing by 14 points, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers' decision to stick with the running game paid big dividends. Facing a San Francisco defense that can't stop anyone on the ground sure helped the cause. Jacquizz Rodgers rushed for a career-high 154 yards and rookie Peyton Barber scored on a 44-yard run to help the Bucs...

Poor quarterback play, shoddy run D doom 49ers once again

SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) The move from Blaine Gabbert to Colin Kaepernick has done little to spark San Francisco's struggling offense. There seems to be nothing can be done to fix the porous run defense. Kaepernick threw for just 143 yards and turned the ball over twice in a second straight subpar start and the 49ers got gashed again on the ground in a 34-17 loss to the Tampa Bay...

WATCH: Bucs WR Mike Evans takes brutal hit on interception return

While blindside hits have mostly been eliminated from the game, every once in a while you see one that isn’t helmet to helmet, but still just as brutal. Mike Evans of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is a big wideout and one of the best weapons for quarterback Jameis Winston. While his physicality can be an asset, dishing it out may not be the same as getting it in return. Ouch. That...

The San Francisco 49ers have stumbled to a 1-5 start to the season and now could be without their lone consistent offensive contributor for Week 7 against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Can Colin Kaepernick lead the Niners again off the bench?

The first time Colin Kaepernick came off the bench in his NFL career, he took over for an injured 1st round quarterback, and led the 49ers to the Super Bowl. Four years later, Kaepernick is once again coming off the bench to replace a 1st round quarterback, but this time, the circumstances have changed. The 49ers are no longer dominant like they were with Jim Harbaugh back in 2012...
