Seahawks still have Kaepernick’s number

Colin Kaepernick struggled against the Seahawks on Thursday night. As usual. In Seattle’s 19-3 Thanksgiving night win at San Francisco, Richard Sherman picked off Kaepernick twice and the 49ers’ offense never got into the end zone. In fact, the 49ers only got into the red zone once, and on their one and only red-zone play,…

Jim Harbaugh: We always evaluate offense, we’ll do it again

In the two weeks leading up to Thanksgiving, the 49ers managed to score 33 points in games against a pair of NFC East bottom feeders but avoided generating much of an alarm because they were able to win both games. They are now up to 36 points in their last three games and the alarms…

Richard Sherman on Kaepernick: I was the open man

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman was holding court after Thursday night’s meeting with the 49ers, just as he was the last time the two teams met. That was in the NFC Championship Game, of course, and Sherman saw his profile grow with the way he crowed about his play to force an interception on a pass…

49ers struggle in first half, down two scores

After a first half in which they looked nothing like playoff contenders, the 49ers face a 13-0 halftime deficit vs. the Seahawks. The 49ers’ offense had a first two quarters to forget. Quarterback Colin Kaepernick struggled with his accuracy, hitting on just 7-of-16 passes for 55 yards. He was picked once by Richard Sherman, setting…

Seahawks capitalize on Sherman pick, score first vs. 49ers

The visiting Seahawks struck first in Thursday night’s pivotal matchup with San Francisco. And one of their stars got the ball rolling.

Wednesday morning one-liners

Bills WR Robert Woods made the Jets pay for single coverage. The Dolphins have had some bad luck. Patriots QB Tom Brady and Packers QB Aaron Rodgers have never started against each other, until Sunday.

Kaepernick thinks Harbaugh will be back in 2015

It’s become almost a given that 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh won’t be back next year.  Many believe anything short of a Super Bowl win means he’ll be gone.  Several weeks ago, Jay Glazer of FOX Sports reported that Harbaugh won’t be back, regardless of the outcome to the season. That perception/reality has yet to permeate…

Week 12 power rankings

1. New England Patriots (No. 2; 9-2):  Gronk like cheese. 2. Green Bay Packers (No. 3; 8-3):  Lambeau Field will never host a Super Bowl, but this weekend it could be hosting a Super Bowl preview. 3. Arizona Cardinals (last week No. 1; 9-2):  There’s a little space on the bandwagon.  It won’t last long.…

Kaepernick on testing Sherman: “I’ll throw to whoever’s open.”

The last pass Colin Kaepernick threw against the Seattle Seahawks cost the San Francisco 49ers a chance at their second straight Super Bowl appearance last January. Kaepernick’s attempt to throw a fade to Michael Crabtree while covered by All-Pro cornerback Richard Sherman proved to be a fatal decision for the 49ers chances in last year’s…

After gutsy call, Jim Harbaugh praises Frank Gore’s fourth-down run

Jim Harbaugh made one of the best calls of the day on Sunday when he decided to go for it on fourth-and-1 from his own 34-yard line while trailing 13-10 with less than five minutes left in the fourth quarter. If the 49ers had failed to convert, Washington would have taken over deep in San…

Colin Kaepernick’s a better leader than pre-game speaker

The 49ers are used to listening to Patrick Willis get them ready for games. But with Willis on injured reserve after toe surgery, somebody else had to talk to the team. Even if the guy in question speaks slightly more than Marshawn Lynch. “Pat wasn’t here today and everyone told me to step up, so…

49ers escape with win after late Carlos Hyde touchdown

The 49ers didn’t make many big plays on offense Sunday, but wide receiver Anquan Boldin came up with one at exactly the right moment in the fourth quarter. Boldin caught a pass in traffic and shrugged off a hit from Redskins safety Ryan Clark, who led with his helmet, to gain 29 yards. Clark’s penalty…

Bashaud Breeland, Tracy Porter leave with injuries in third quarter

The Redskins are running low on cornerbacks in the third quarter of their game against the 49ers. They opened the day without David Amerson, who reportedly broke a team rule and was declared inactive, and lost E.J. Biggers to a concussion in the first half of the game. Their defense has held up well, but…

49ers grab lead just before halftime

Jay Gruden hasn’t had to avail himself of Colt McCoy just yet. The Redskins came into Sunday’s game with the 49ers on the heels of another drama-filled week mostly centered on quarterback Robert Griffin III that culminated with a Sunday report that Gruden is prepared to pull Griffin in favor of McCoy during the matchup…
