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

With a series of long offensive marches, stout defensive play and vital special teams contributions, the 49ers wore down the visiting Chiefs on Sunday at Levi’s Stadium, powering to a 22-17 victory in Santa Clara. After falling behind 17-13 early in the third quarter on Chiefs rookie tailback De’Anthony Thomas‘ 17-yard TD catch, the 49ers…

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 score on all three first-half drives, take 13-10 halftime lead

Led by a sharp offense, the 49ers took a 13-10 lead after two quarters vs. visiting Kansas City on Sunday. Quarterback Colin Kaepernick connected on 8-of-15 passes for 122 yards in the first half, and his nine-yard scoring toss to a wide-open Stevie Johnson with about 30 seconds left in the second quarter put San…

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…

Kaepernick avoids topic of locker-room turmoil

After non-reporter Deion Sanders reported that 49ers players want coach Jim Harbaugh to coach someone other than the 49ers, the team trotted out several players to debunk the report from the non-reporter. But where were the team leaders?  Patrick Willis, Justin Smith, Frank Gore, Anquan Boldin, Colin Kaepernick were all silent on the topic in…

Bears defense may prefer to face Cam Newton

As the Bears prepare to return their sanctuary away from Soldier Field, where the home team is 0-2, they’ll be squaring off again the Panthers and quarterback Cam Newton. There’s a good chance they prefer that to squaring off against the Panthers and quarterback Derek Anderson. With Newton still limited by offseason ankle surgery and…

Frank Gore’s in a better mood, 49ers are in a better place

Frank Gore insisted he was only upset about the loss, not in his small role in it last week. But this week, he was in a better mood, and the team was in a better place, and that’s not a coincidence. Gore posted his 36th 100-yard game, along with grabbing a 55-yard touchdown pass from…

49ers shut down Nick Foles, beat the Eagles

In a battle of NFC contenders on Sunday in San Francisco, the 49ers looked like they had a playoff-caliber defense and the Eagles looked like they had a last-place-caliber offense. The 49ers won 26-21, but that score doesn’t indicate just how bad Philadelphia’s offense was. This game was ugly for Chip Kelly’s offensive attack, and…

Anthony Davis, Brandon Boykin injured in San Francisco

The 49ers and Eagles have both lost players to injuries in the early going in San Francisco. Anthony Davis, who started at right tackle for the 49ers today, suffered an injury when Colin Kaepernick was taken down into the back of Davis’s legs. It looked bad when Davis went down, although he was able to…
