Comparing the San Francisco 49ers to the Giants 1. FS Eric Reid is CF Gregor Blanco Quiet and unassuming, both are known for how they defend the deep middle of the field. 2. DB Jimmie Ward is 2B Joe Panik Two rookies counted on by their respective clubs to play like veterans. 3. LB Patrick Willis is C Buster Posey Leaders of their respective franchises and clutch performers. 4. G Alex Boone is RF Hunter Pence Intensity personified. Pre-game speeches are epic, too. 5. SS Antoine Bethea is 3B Pablo Sandoval Underrated defenders and heavy hitters who contribute to team success. 6. WR Michael Crabtree is 1B Brandon Belt Two impact performers who are back from injury to spark the offense. 7. WR Stevie Johnson is SS Brandon Crawford A pair of Bay Area athletes who are contributing to their hometown teams. 8.

Seriously though the Broncos look the early team to beat this season from what I can gather. This preview of the clash of the titans in week 7 didn't live up to expectations but will surely be more competitive in the regular season. Stevie Johnson and Michael Crabtree did not have a reception and Vernon Davis did not play. The 49ers secondary is struggling to find an identity and suffered a set back when the lost Antoine Bethea to a concussion. I have not seen enough of Colin Kaepernick to say whether he is improving or not, this week he was 5/9, 39yds. Denver'so secondary on the other hand had 2 interceptio ...
Without citing Richard Sherman by name, San Francisco receiver Michael Crabtree made it clear he's tired of the back-and-forth between the two. Find out what else the 49ers wideout had to say.
On Today's edition of To The Right...First off I want to say a very hearty thank you to all of those who have served, and those who are serving in our armed forces just as those heroic men did 70 years ago today on the beaches of Normandy. You are the reason why I am free and able to do stuff like this on a daily, so thank you. Second, and officially the first topic of the day, Richard Sherman wins the Madden NFL 15 cover. Okay so there are three groups of people who are happy about this. 1)Michael Crabtree, who's ego is so big that he gets his own group, and because he got owned by Sherman last season. 2)Every member of the San Francisco 49ers and their entire fanbase because now Seattle won't stand between them and home field in the playoffs this year, and 3)Everybody else in the NFL not named Richard Sherman. I mean hey, this Madden NFL cover thing can't be all bad if Peyton Hillis did it, right? And last but certainly not least, Rashad McCants has officially thrown Roy Williams and the entire Universi ...
49ers, Colin Kaepernick agree to 6-yr, $126 million deal with $61 million guaranteed Submitted by Dana Draper on June 4, 2014 - 4:49pm According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, the San Francisco 49ers and quarterback Colin Kaepernick have agreed to a six year contract extension worth $126 million, with $61 million guaranteed through 2020. Kaepernick gets $21 million annually in new money and sets the new quarterback record for guaranteed money, surpassing Peyton Manning by $3 million. Kaepernick, a former second-round pick was entering the final year of his rookie deal. The team has been one of the most run-heavy teams, but after the arrival of Stevie Johnson, and Michael Crabtree healthy, it's expected the club wants to open up the passing offense more in 2014.

San Francisco 49ers tight end Vernon Davis is not attending the team's OTAs, a source confirmed to espn.com. Davis, who has two years left on the six-year, $42.7 million contract he signed in 2010, has been absent as he's seeking a new deal, according to a report by CSNBayArea.com. He is forfeiting a $200,000 workout bonus by not showing up. When asked about Davis' absence, Coach Jim Harbaugh told the media that workouts were voluntary. Davis was drafted sixth overall by the 49ers in 2006. He was a Pro Bowl selection last season after making 84 catches for 850 yards and 13 touchdowns. The 49ers' ability to re-sign or restructure Davis' deal could be hindered by their need to re-sign quarterback Colin Kaepernick and wide receiver Michael Crabtree, whose contracts are up at the end of the 2014 season.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Many thought heading the San Francisco 49ers would trade way up in the first round of the draft to acquire a stud receiver. Events did not unfold that way but the 49ers receiving crew is now loaded. After trading a conditional 2015 fourth-round pick to Buffalo for veteran Stevie Johnson on Friday, the 49ers took South Carolina speedster Bruce Ellington with the sixth pick of the fourth round. Just as running back Carlos Hyde, center Marcus Martin and linebacker Chris Borland were Friday, Ellington was considered a high value choice. Some scouts thought he’d go in the second round. Ellington gives the 49ers blazing speed from a receiver, the one thing they appeared to be lacking. With Johnson, Michael Crabtree, Anquan Boldin and tight end Vernon Davis, the 49ers have plenty of veterans who will get open. Now, they can design packages to leverage Ellington’s speed. Second-year receiver Quinton Patton also came on strong late in the season. It now appears highly unlikely Brandon Ll ...
And there you go!!! The Niners just selected Bruce Ellington WR from South Carolina!!! Want to talk about weapons galore. Kap has no more excuses with all the weapons he now has in disposal.

Seriously the Recieving core for the San Francisco 49ners is scary. Michael Crabtree, Anquan Boldin, Stevie Johnson, Brandon Lloyd, and Bruce Ellington? *** man lol
San Francisco 49ers acquire Stevie Johnson from Bills The Buffalo Bills moved quickly Friday to thin their crowded wide receiving corps. The San Francisco 49ers acquired receiver Stevie Johnson for a conditional 2015 fourth-round pick that could become a third-rounder, a source told NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport. ESPN first reported the news of the trade, and the Bills later confirmed the deal along with the Niners. Johnson is a good fit in San Francisco, which was searching for a third receiver to complement Michael Crabtree and Anquan Boldin. While Johnson doesn't have the blazing speed general manager Trent Baalke was looking for, his ability to run option routes should be a boon for quarterback Colin Kaepernick. The Bills had been shopping Johnson leading up to the draft. NFL Media's Albert Breer reported Friday that the Bills tried to deal him to Tampa Bay as part of the trade that brought Mike Williams to Buffalo. The Bills replaced their former No. 1 receiver's on-field production Thursday by trad ...

This game is awful. I don't see how Seattle is dominating when they barely made it to the Super Bowl. They won in the last few seconds at Candlestick Park (their home field) vs San Francisco. Well, I'm pretty proud of my team now. Colin Kaepernick, Michael Crabtree, Vernon Davis, Alex Smith & Frank Gore did pretty good against them!
Richard Sherman and the death of sportsmanship Much of America’s senseless sports chatter leading up to the Super Bowl has centered around Seattle Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, which is pretty remarkable when you think about it. Sherman is among the best at his position and made a clutch defensive play at the key moment of last week’s NFC championship win over San Francisco, but no one really wants to talk about those elements of the game. The prevailing topic is sportsmanship, or lack thereof, and how Sherman fits into the “look at me” culture of the modern pro athlete, where individual motives and brand management supersede the sanctity of taking one for the team. Much of the hand-wringing stems from Sherman’s postgame interview with sideline reporter Erin Andrews, in which he denigrated 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree (whom he had deftly defended on the climactic play, leading to a Seattle interception) and shouted his greatness with unnerving emphasis into living rooms and bars across ...
( WORLDSWAGG ) Colin Kaepernick tossed aside political correctness and called Richard Sherman s behavior after Seattle beat San Francisco to advance to the Super Bowl ridiculous. Sherman broke up Kaepernick s pass intended for Michael Crabtree in the final seconds, leading to an interception by linebacker Malcolm Smith, which preserved the 23-17 Seahawks victory. Sherman ran over, tapped Crabtree on the backside and eventually made a choking gesture directed at Kaepernick. Then, in a postgame interview on Fox Sports, Sherman became even more heated. I m the best corner in the game! Sherman yelled. When you try me with a sorry receiver like Crabtree, that s the result you re gonna get. Don t you ever talk about me! Sherman then was asked who was talking about him. Crabtree, he said. Don t you open your mouth about the best, or I m gonna shut it for you real quick. To me, it was ridiculous, Kaepernick said of Sherman s rant. But if that s what you need to do to make yourself feel like a

Seattle cornerback Richard Sherman made a game-saving play with his hands in the Seahawks' 23-17 win over the San Francisco 49ers last night, but he made even bigger news with his mouth after the game. In a post-game interview, Sherman called 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree "sorry" and later went out of his way to call Crabtree "mediocre" during a press conference. Cornerbacks in the NFL often play with a little big of swagger, but were Sherman's statements over the line? Click here to read more:

There is a chance the San Francisco 49ers will have their first-team offense available for the first time this season Sunday at Tampa Bay. Standout guard Mike Iupati was on the field for a walk-through practice Wednesday. 49ers Coach Jim Harbaugh said he expects Iupati, who suffered a sprained MCL in his knee Nov. 17 at New Orleans, to practice this week. If Iupati stays the course and plays, the 49ers will be at their healthiest of the season. He has been replaced by Adam Snyder. When Michael Crabtree made his season debut Dec. 1 against St. Louis, Iupati was out and left tackle Joe Staley left the game in the first quarter with a knee injury. Staley played Sunday against Seattle. Barring any unknown issues this week, 49ers' starting 11 offense could all be together at the team tried to clinch an NFC playoff berth Sunday.
A Michael Crabtree story. That is - the 49ers Crabtree. Since his contract negotiations his first year I thought he was kind of a jerk, but am upgrading my opinion of him. When he was at Texas Tech he would return to the practice field at night and set up small orange cones so he could practice his starts and stops and cuts. He was a star quarterback in high school before being converted into a receiver in college, and he was one of the best high school basketball players in Texas and offered a scholarship by Bob Knight. And that is the story of Michael Crabtree, who will be active this week for San Francisco.
sunday sports... Top 5 key Week 12 injuries With the last of the bye weeks upon us, teams are officially out of additional rest time - and judging by the Week 12 injury list, some rosters could use plenty more. The Minnesota Vikings will have a hobbled superstar in the lineup this week, while the Washington Redskins will be missing one of their top playmakers. And the San Francisco 49ers may be on the verge of getting back one of the key members of their NFC championship team from a season ago. Here's a look at five of the most important injuries heading into Week 12: Michael Crabtree, WR, San Francisco 49ers (PUP, Achilles) There's some thought that Crabtree might be activated from the physically-unable-to-perform list as early as this week after he made an appearance at practice on Thursday. The 49ers remain mum about a timetable for the standout wide receiver, who hasn't played all season after suffering an Achilles injury over the summer. It may be a stretch to expect him back Monday night - but Crabt ...
No more fumbles for 49ers release Kyle Williams ESPN : November 12, 2013 SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- Kyle Williams' rocky tenure with the San Francisco 49ers is over. The 49ers on Tuesday made it official by releasing Williams, who had a history of key fumbles. "He has been released," Williams' agent, Wynn Silberman said. "We're looking forward to the opportunity to compete within the league somewhere this year. We're very appreciative of the San Francisco 49ers organization for the opportunity to contribute." Williams' release had been earlier reported by ESPN contributor Adam Caplan. In addition to releasing Williams, the Niners also waived rookie cornerback Perrish Cox and activated rookie linebacker Nick Moody. "Decisions like these are always difficult, especially at this time of year," said 49ers general manager Trent Baalke. "Kyle and Perrish have represented the 49ers organization very well, both on and off the field. We appreciate their dedication and contributions and wish them all the best." William ...

Anquan Boldin Trade: What it Means for the Green Bay PackersJASON HIRSCHHORN 2 hours ago « PREVIOUS Apparently, Percy Harvin wasn’t the only player today told to “Go West, young man.” The world champion Baltimore Ravens sent Anquan Boldin to the San Francisco 49ers. In return, Baltimore receives a sixth round pick and valuable cap relief. By trading Boldin, the Ravens have carved an additional $6 million in space for the Joe Flacco mega deal from earlier this month and receive a draft pick (albeit a late one) for a player many thought would be released. In the short run, the ramifications for the 49ers are far more significant. With Boldin now in tow, the 49ers have another physical target to pair with Michael Crabtree for must-have downs and conversions. His arrival also allows San Francisco to better optimize Mario Manningham as the third receiver. In one move, San Francisco has remodeled its receiving corps to accommodate the needs and strengths of quarterback Colin Kaepernick. The Boldin trade ...
St. Louis Rams coach Jeff Fisher said the Baltimore Ravens' Jimmy Smith should have been called for pass interference on Michael Crabtree during the San Francisco 49ers' final offensive play of Super Bowl XLVII.
Baltimore Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith made the biggest play of life Sunday night, breaking up a Colin Kaepernick pass intended for San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree that essentially decided Super Bowl XLVII. Of course, whether Smith's coverage of Crabtree was legal is a matter of opinion. He thinks i was. The Niners -- including Coach Jim Harbaugh -- believe Smith should've been flagged for defensive holding or pass interference on the fourth-and-goal play from the Ravens' 5-yard line. What do you think?
Here is an interesting commentary from an article from Sports Illustrated about the officiating in the Superbowl. I didn't know that a Baltimore Cornerback shoved an official during a brawl and didn't even get penalized let alone ejected as per the rules. This whole garbage about "Ray Lewis going out with a championship" seems to have been taken to heart by the officials. The 49ers weren't the only ones in the Superdome who didn't look ready for the game's grandest stage for a good bit of the night. Referee Jerome Boger and his crew weren't in championship form either. I suppose the debate has to start with the dubious non-call on the game-deciding play: That 4th-and-5 incompletion by San Francisco on the Ravens 5 with 1:46 remaining, on which receiver Michael Crabtree appeared to be interfered with and/or held by Ravens cornerback Jimmy Smith. There was an awful lot of contact on the play, and it seemed Smith had a piece of Crabtree's jersey at one point. It's a shame the game turned on that play, but .. ...
I had a fun time watching a wild Super Bowl last night. I couldn't believe that Baltimore almost lost after being up by 22 points. I literally thought San Francisco was done but the way they came back was incredible. Too bad about the controversial no-calls on Goal-to- go situations at the end of the game! I thought the side judge and lines judge were horrible pretty much the whole game. They let San Francisco get away with some defensive holding but end the end, it was Baltimore who wasn't called for it! Life's a gamble and sometimes you have to roll the dice! I wonder if that thought was going through Jimmy Smith's mind when he was wrapping his arms around Michael Crabtree's waist?
QB Colin Kaepernick rallies from slow start, nearly leads another 49ers comeback in Super Bowl 02-04-2013 01:36 AM MST |By JANIE McCAULEY, AP Sports Writer Enlarge This Image Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Jacoby Jones (12) catches a 56-yard touchdown pass against San Francisco 49ers cornerback Tarell Brown (25) during the first half of the NFL the Super Bowl XLVII football game, Sunday, Feb. 3, 2013, in New Orleans. (AP Photo/Gene Puskar) New Orleans (Associated Press) -- Under pressure and off balance, Colin Kaepernick released a fourth-down throw into the end zone with the outcome of the Super Bowl hanging in the balance. Everyone in the Superdome could see that the ball wasn't caught as it sailed over Michael Crabtree. Enraged San Francisco Coach Jim Harbaugh argued for why: He thought Crabtree got held, bumped by cornerback Jimmy Smith with safety Ed Reed trailing the play. "There's no question in my mind that there was a pass interference and then a hold on Crabtree on the last one," Harbaugh said. ...
Anquan Boldin triumphantly raised both arms over his head, but this was no touchdown signal.

Blackout at the Superdome leads to a huge momentum shift in Super Bowl By Frank Schwab | Shutdown Corner But it's hard not to intertwine the blackout and the complete momentum changed that happened afterward. Although the 49ers' first play after the blackout was a failed third down conversion that led to a punt, San Francisco came back in a big way after that. A couple of stops by the defense helped. So did quarterback Colin Kaepernick heating up. He hit Michael Crabtree for a touchdown. After a short punt and a good return by Ted Ginn, Kaepernick's throw to Vernon Davis set up a touchdown run by Frank Gore. The 49ers scored two touchdowns in 2:21 to cut Baltimore's lead from 22 points to only eight points. From the time of the blackout to Gore's touchdown, the 49ers outgained the Ravens 106-16. Once again it was a close game. The 49ers got even closer after Ray Rice lost a fumble, and the Ravens had a running into the kicker penalty on a David Akers' missed field goal. Akers made the second attempt after ...

NFL Week Divisional Playoffs - THOUGHTS & OBSERVATIONS by Macdawg 1. The Conference Championship Games are now set for next Sunday. In the NFC Championship, the 49'ers will play the Falcons in Atlanta. That game should be a very close line, 1-2 points in favor of Atlanta. H'm, it came out as San Francisco a 3 1/2 point favorite, pardon the pun, but that seems out of line to me! In the AFC Championship, it is a replay of last year's Championship Game, the Ravens playing the Patriots in Foxborough. I would guess the Patriots will be about a 7 1/2 point favorite. That's what it is, so I guess that's what it should be. 2. At the start of the season Gridders, I told you that things would not end favorably in Denver. It didn't, "Karma" will always get you! The underdog Ravens upset the highly favored Broncos in mile high Denver, in double overtime, 38-35! John Elway, John Fox, and the entire Broncos braintrust got just what they deserved. At least last year, Tim Tebow led ...

This next week end will be very interesting, for sure. The AFC Championshil will be decided by the New England Patriots and the Baltimore Ravens. The NFC Championship will be decided by the Atlanta Falcons and the San Francisco 49er's. Gary's picks: In a very close game, the Ravens will defeat the Patriots. In a rout, the San Francisco 49'ers will win big time over the Facons. In a squeaker, the Ravens will win the Superbowl - and remember, you heard it here first. How about those Cleveland Browns! I pick them to be in the AFC Wildcard Game in 2013-2014. Yeah, baby! My Cleveland Browns!
San Francisco 49ers running back Frank Gore and wide receiver Michael Crabtree both fined $10,500 for throwing footballs into the crowd after scoring touchdowns in the 27-13 win over the Arizona Cardinals.
When 49ers receiver Michael Crabtree and running back Frank Gore scored touchdowns on Sunday, they decided to throw the ball into the crowd and let a San Francisco fan get a souvenir. That was an expensive decision. The NFL has fined Crabtree and Gore $10,500 each for throwing the ball into the stands.--RF
“If Joe Flacco gets outplayed by Andrew Luck, what an indictment on him and the contract he is asking for.” – Marshall Faulk “As long as Michael Crabtree is playing, the San Francisco 49ers have a chance to win a Super Bowl. He is the key to making their offense go.” – Michael Irvin

If you survived the ups/downs and bad calls on phantom players - you saw a great comeback by TB and the boyz in the second half - but not great enough!! Shake it off - we're already in! See you in Miami! GO PATS REPOST: FOXBOROUGH — The Patriots clawed back from a four-touchdown hole against the 49ers on a cold and rainy Sunday night, but they could not complete their comeback. With white knuckles and clenched teeth, San Francisco clung to its lead as the Patriots posted score after score in the second half. Though the Niners never relinquished the lead, the Patriots tied the score with 6:43 left and seemed to have momentum fully on its side. But in one play — a 38-yard Colin Kaepernick to Michael Crabtree catch-and-run — San Francisco reclaimed the lead. This time its defense held firm, and the 49ers won, 41-34. They were able to leave Gillette Stadium as the first visiting team to ...
Jon Gruden: "Michael Crabtree continues to make great strides as a San Francisco 49er." Me: "Will you make great strides as the Tennessee head coach?"
The Rams play at San Francisco this afternoon.The 49ers are the class of the NFC West,and I doubt seriously that the Rams can pull off an upset.Alex Smith and Michael Crabtree have settled into the Jim Harbaugh system,and the ground game featuring Frank Gore from the U,and Oklahoma State's Kendall Hunter is one of the best in the NFL. Two Mizzou boys,Aldon Smith and Justin Smith,anchor a very good defense.

San Francisco 49ers set new offensive mark in blowout win over Buffalo Bills SAN FRANCISCO -- Joe Montana never did it. Neither did Steve Young or Y.A. Tittle. Even the architect of the West Coast offense, Bill Walsh, could only imagine such a massive mark. Of all the Hall of Fame quarterbacks and coaches in the history of the San Francisco 49ers , leave it to Alex Smith and Jim Harbaugh to set a new standard. Smith threw for a season-high 303 yards and three touchdowns, Frank Gore ran for 106 yards and a score, and the 49ers amassed a franchise-record 621 yards in blowing by the Buffalo Bills 45-3 on Sunday. San Francisco also became the first team in NFL history with 300 yards passing and 300 yards rushing. "Very cool," Smith said. "When you think of the 49ers , you think of great offense." Michael Crabtree (seven catches for 113 yards) and Vernon Davis (seven catches for 106 yards) each eclipsed the century mark to pull San Francisco (4-1) into a tie with Arizona for the NFC West lead. Even Randy Moss ...
just for my friend danny Peyton Manning made an enormous mistake not signing with the 49ers. It’s obvious Manning needs help. Jim Harbaugh can hide a quarterback with a weak arm. Alex Smith is exhibit A. Plus, the San Francisco defense, Frank Gore, Vernon Davis and Michael Crabtree give a weak-armed QB more places to hide.
Season Outlook: Ranked # 1 The San Francisco 49ers stay atop the power rankings after a second straight win against a 2011 playoff team. The Green Bay Packers couldn't move the ball against the 49ers defense, and neither could the Detroit Lions. Holding the powerful Lions offense to field goals just goes to show the sheer might of the San Francisco defense. If Green Bay and Detroit can't score on the 49ers, who can? What's more terrifying for opponents is that the San Francisco offense is much better this year. Michael Crabtree is playing like the Top 10 draft pick that he was, Frank Gore and Kendall Hunter are a dynamic duo at running back, and Vernon Davis provides the spark as a game-changing tight end. The 49ers might not go undefeated, but they are undoubtedly the team to beat right now.

San Francisco wide receiver Michael Crabtree says he's getting the best of cornerback Carlos Rogers in practice.
The 49ers might have five No. 1 receivers, but they’re only going to start two of them. Coach Jim Harbaugh said Michael Crabtree and Ted Ginn would start tonight against the Vikings. For Crabtree, it will be his first preseason game appearance, and it means Randy Moss will be working off the bench, according to Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle.
Mercury News: Alex Smith, Michael Crabtree ready to go for San Francisco 49ers in Friday's preseason opener
Alex Smith: Crabtree is early star of OTAs - Michael Crabtree (WR) San Francisco 49ers
If Thursday’s practice at the 49ers headquarters served as any indication of Randy Moss ’ positive influence on former No. 10 overall pick Michael Crabtree , fans of this San Francisco franchise should be thoroughly encouraged...
Jenkins originally planned to attend his graduation -- with Coach Jim Harbaugh's blessing -- but changed his mind. The wideout's agent, Jon Perzley, told the Bay Area News Group it was a "no brainer" to join his new teammates. "(Graduating) is certainly important. He busted his tail to graduate and he's getting that piece of paper no matter what," Purzley said, adding that contract talks won't hold back Jenkins: "He certainly won't miss training camp. A deal will get done." Out of the gate, a better experience for San Francisco than the early days of receiver Michael Crabtree, the team's first-round pick in 2009 who missed rookie training camp -- and four games of the 2009 season -- over a bitter contract standoff.
