49ers outscore St. Louis 31-3 over final three quarters in victory over Rams

The San Francisco 49ers were dominated for most of the first half of Monday night’s game against the St. Louis Rams. However, a boneheaded play by the Rams allowed the 49ers to get jump-started before the halftime and San Francisco outscored the Rams by a 24-3 margin over the final 31 minutes of the game…

Non-Bose headphones not an issue in pre-pregame warmups

Cameras have captured several players donning non-Bose headphones on Sunday, a week after 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was fined $10,000 for sporting something other than the official deafness-inducing apparatus of the NFL. As it turns out, players like Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman, Panthers quarterback Cam Newton, and even Patriots quarterback Tom Brady won’t be fined…

Bose making mass shipments of headphones to NFL players

Bose bought the NFL’s attention with a sponsorship deal for headphones, so then the NFL had to get Colin Kaepernick’s attention by fining him for wearing a competing product. But since many players already owned that competing product, it might have created an enforcement issue at some stage. Bose is apparently trying to head that…

League fines Kaepernick for wearing non-Bose headphones

The NFL’s new deal with Bose, which blare the letters B-O-S-E whenever a head coach puts his head down on camera, gives the company that puts quality over sizzle the privilege of exclusivity. Which means that players can’t be promoting competing products on the field or in official press conferences. For 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick,…

49ers climb above .500, defeat Chiefs

Lloyd’s athletic catch helps give Niners the lead

Like a golfer reaching into the bag and pulling out an old one-iron with dust on its head for the match’s biggest shot, the Niners dug deep and made a couple of big plays to take a 19-17 fourth quarter lead against the Chiefs on Sunday in San Francisco. First, the Niners faked a punt…

Niners won’t have Vernon or Anthony Davis

As 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick prepares to show that his team made the right decision at the position two years ago, Kaepernick won’t have two key pieces of his offensive support system. Tight end Vernon Davis (back) and right tackle Anthony Davis (knee, ankle) won’t play on Sunday against Alex Smith and the Chiefs.  Both…

Week Five “Three and Out”

The first stab at the new “Three and Out” series yielded mixed results.  It was well received, but it wasn’t all that well read. Part of the problem is that I posted it on Sunday morning.  This week, I tried to get it done earlier.  (Whether I succeeded depends on the date and time listed…

Alex Smith: No regrets after leaving 49ers better off than when I got there

Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith has been watching film to prepare for the 49ers defense this week, something that might make him recall the days when he used to practice against the likes of Justin Smith and Patrick Willis. Those days came to an end in 2012 when Smith was benched in favor of Colin Kaepernick,…

PFT’s Week Five picks

Last week, MDS was getting cocky, again.  After sweeping the three early games on which we disagreed, he’d clinched the weekly win.  But two disagreements remained — and both of them (Vikings and Chiefs) went my way. Net result?  MDS added a game to his lead.  He’s now up by two games through four weeks.…

Kaepernick, Smith get together again

A storyline that should be getting far more hype as Week Five approaches (and I’ll do my best to hype it up right now) will unfold in San Frantaclara, where the 49ers will host the Chiefs.  It marks the first reunion between the 49ers and the first overall pick in the 2005 draft, quarterback Alex…
