Have the greatest 49ers jerseys of all time returned?

Jase Greenberg Images of home 1994 throwbacks leak online I didn’t think it was possible for a topic to light 49ers Twitter on fire more than The Great Quarterback Debate of 2021 - until I saw this tweet from Jase Greenberg over the weekend. Oh yeah, by the way, the #49ers and #Browns are getting throwbacks with drop shadows this year. @UniWatch @sportslogosnet @PhilHecken pic.twitter.com/3rtoFFKi9z— Jase Greenberg (@JGreenberg11) March 7, 2021 The 49ers haven’t had a ton of great jerseys throughout their history, and 49ers fans don’t agree on much these...

Chris Simms has three ideas of how the 49ers could upgrade at QB this offseason

Chris Simms has three ideas of how the 49ers could upgrade at QB this offseason

Photo by Jim McIsaac/ Sign a better backup, draft, or Darnold NBC Sports’ Chris Simms has been in the news during the past week as Simms released his QB rankings for the upcoming NFL Draft and had BYU’s Zach Wilson as the top quarterback and Texas A&M QB Kellen Mond rated higher than Ohio State’s Justin Fields and North Dakota State’s Trey Lance. I don’t see the big deal as Simms is allowed to have his own opinion. Most of the time, people are regurgitating what they see from others anyway when they come up with “their” rankings, so Kudos to Simms for...

49ers free agency, would you rather edition: Sign a CB or a pass rusher?

49ers free agency, would you rather edition: Sign a CB or a pass rusher?

Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/ Would San Francisco let Jason Verrett walk, sign a pass rusher to replace Dee Ford, and draft a cornerback? With the NFL beginning free agency in a week, teams around the league will face difficult decisions as the salary cap figures to be under $183 million. That could mean more one-year deals than ever, not as many “mega” deals on Day 1 of free agency, and some players leaving that you would have otherwise retained. Today, let’s play a “would you rather” game. The question is, would you rather draft a cornerback or two in this...

49ers mailbag: Will the 49ers replace Sherman through free agency or in the draft?

49ers mailbag: Will the 49ers replace Sherman through free agency or in the draft?

Photo by Harry How/ In today’s mailbag, we cover everything free agency related A week from Monday, NFL teams are allowed to start negotiations with players as free agency gets underway formally. We’d be naive to think that the San Francisco 49ers haven’t spoken to their current group of unrestricted free agents. If you’re curious why there hasn’t been a deal made yet, the answer is simple: Why would a player agree to a deal before he sees how the market values him? We asked you what is on your mind with a week to go before free agency. Let’s get into some...

Breer: San Francisco is among three teams to watch for in the Darnold sweepstakes

Photo by Al Pereira/ Peter King said Darnold to the 49ers is his personal favorite in his FMIA column It’s Monday, which means a few national writers will have some quarterback nuggets in their latest columns. That’s been the case the past couple of weeks, and it was no different on this Monday morning. Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer wrote in his MMQB column Chicago, San Francisco, and Washington are three teams to watch for in the Sam Darnold sweepstakes: As for teams to watch, three in particular are interesting to me: Chicago, San Francisco and Washington....

Golden Nuggets: Juszczyk explains how not having an NFL Combine will affect free agency

Photo by Christian Petersen/ Your daily San Francisco 49ers links for Monday, March 8, 2021 We are just over a week away from NFL free agency. We’ll see how many rumors start to trickle in about who the 49ers are interested in or are willing to let walk as the week goes along. 49ers’ Kyle Juszczyk explains why start of free agency may not be typical signing frenzy “I feel like most of the time, that’s because before [COVID-19], most of the negotiating gets done at the Combine,” Juszczyk said on The Pat McAfee Show last week. “And I know nobody wants to talk...

McShay has the 49ers trading up for QB Mac Jones in his latest mock draft

Photo by Senior Bowl/Collegiate Images/ ESPN’s Todd McShay had four quarterbacks go in the first four picks of his latest mock draft. Trevor Lawrence went to Jacksonville. The Jets moved on from Sam Darnold to draft Zach Wilson. The Panthers jumped everyone else in a trade with the Dolphins to select Justin Fields, while the Falcons took Trey Lance at No. 4 to complete the QB run. In his previous mock, McShay had San Francisco moving down. This time around, the 49ers moved up to No. 9 as John Lynch and his buddy John Elway do business, and the Niners take Alabama QB,...

SB Nation Reacts: Only 17% of fans think J.J. Watt makes the Cardinals a Super Bowl contender

Photo by Carmen Mandato/ Welcome to SB Nation Reacts, a survey of fans across the NFL. Each week, we send out questions to the most plugged-in San Francisco 49ers fans and fans across the country. Sign up here to join Reacts. Two of the names that have dominated the NFL offseason already both played for the Houston Texans last season, and both plan on changing that in the coming year. However, fans feel very different about what those players can do for a new team. After asking for and being released from the Texans, J.J. Watt signed with the Arizona Cardinals. But...

Golden Nuggets: Brandon Aiyuk was PFF’s fourth-highest graded rookie first-round WR since 2014

Photo by Ezra Shaw/ Your daily San Francisco 49ers links for Saturday, March 6, 2021 On Friday evening, Ben Allbright, who is plugged into the Denver Broncos and has been for years now, tweeted that the 49ers and the Cardinals could be interested in restricted free agent running back Philip Lindsay. It would depend on what tender Denver places on Linsday, but he has two 1,000 yard rushing seasons and is one of the fastest running backs in the league. His style of play would fit the 49ers' wide-zone scheme. Options for the 49ers if LT Trent Williams leaves in free...

49ers sign TE Ross Dwelley and S Marcell Harris to one-year extensions

Additionally, the team declined the 2021 contract option for LB Mark Nzeocha. Dwelley (6-5, 235) appeared in all 16 games (nine starts) in 2020 and registered career highs in receptions (19) and receiving yards (245) to go along with one receiving touchdown. He also added three tackles on special teams. Dwelley has served as a critical backup to George...

49ers gain $11 million in cap space and are up to $23 million, per Over The Cap

Photo by Christian Petersen/ This is likely due to players not reaching their LTBE incentives from 2020 The website Over The Cap does a fantastic job of laying out each player's contracts and providing daily updates. On Friday morning, OTC updated their salary cap page for the San Francisco 49ers, and the Niners had an $11 million bump in cap space. That brings the team to $23 million before any restructures or potential cuts. Incentives are divided into two categories. Likely to be earned (LTBE) or not likely to be earned (NLTBE.) LTBE incentives count against the...

Bleacher Report lists 49ers among five NFL teams that are most likely to disappoint in 2021

Photo by Abbie Parr/ B/R’s Chris Roling says San Francisco needs a change at quarterback. A year after the San Francisco 49ers were in the Super Bowl, they found themselves out of the playoff picture after an injury-riddled 2020 season. The Niners lost the likes of Nick Bosa, George Kittle, Richard Sherman, Deebo Samuel and Jimmy Garoppolo for long stretches last season. The result was a last-place finish in the NFC West at 6-10. Even with 32 players up for new deals, San Francisco has a ton of talent in place for 2021. Bosa, Kittle, Samuel and Fred Warner make up...

Photo by Steph Chambers/ It’s going to be an interesting 12 days leading up to the start of NFL free agency. The new NFL league year kicks off on March 17, but there will be plenty of news over the next 12 days. The San Francisco 49ers have a lot of work to do with several key players up for free agency. The No. 1 priority for general manager John Lynch is to re-sign left tackle Trent Williams. The All-Pro was named the best offensive lineman in the league by Pro Football Focus last season and could command a deal in the $20 million per season range. Over the Cap...
