Frank Gore keeps praising Andrew Luck

Running back Frank Gore spent four seasons with quarterback Colin Kaepernick in San Francisco. But Gore apparently never played with a quarterback until he signed with the Colts.

Hit on Sam Bradford wasn’t illegal

Two years ago, former 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh lobbied for greater protections for mobile quarterbacks, complaints that ultimately served as a verbal rope-a-dope for a Week One game against the Packers, whose defense Colin Kaepernick then shredded with his arm. The league thereafter considered changing the rules to provide more protection for running quarterbacks, but…

Frank Gore on Andrew Luck: He runs the huddle, I’ve never had that before

During 10 years with the 49ers, running back Frank Gore played with a lot of quarterbacks. Some of them were better than others and he made playoff runs with both Alex Smith and Colin Kaepernick running the offense, but no one’s going to confuse the members of that group with Colts quarterback Andrew Luck. Now…

The 49ers failed to advance to the playoffs last season, ending a three-year string of making it at least as far as the NFC title game and touching off an offseason of sweeping change. One thing that didn’t change was the identity of the starting quarterback. Colin Kaepernick will run the offense again this season after…

Greg Roman’s Bills offense is “tight end heaven”

The Bills made several big moves this offseason, including hiring Greg Roman to be their offensive coordinator and signing tight end Charles Clay away from the Dolphins as a restricted free agent.

Condon is confident Giants will extend Eli Manning’s contract

When it comes to a long-term contract that expires after the coming season, Giants quarterback Eli Manning doesn’t seem to care very much. Then again, he’s always that way. In this specific case, Eli’s default demeanor serves him well. He’s not desperate to do a deal, which could help him get a better deal than…
