  1. Well 49ers fans, her is another seaon and I can not wait to see the difference in Offense and Defense the new players are going to make. Look out Seattle, this year the divisional belongs to SF49ers.

  2. i;m just as hype as everyone about this upcoming season but i had to pump my brakes……….. we will only go as far as Alex Smith takes us………………. i like Alex i like the players we picked up around him but it is up to him to take us to that next level ………….so his offseason is who i;m going to be watching and listening for to see how he has improved…………….i dont want him to look like that guy from the GAINTS no need to call names

  3. Yeah, it looks like everything is coming together nicely. Both sides of the ball are going to be much improved!!! Oposing QB’s are going to be under pressure on every pass attempt. It also looks like Williams is ready to step up and contribute on offense. They is a chat tonight 6 PM Pacific with Mike Maiocco on 49erswebzone.com. Everyone should stop by and see what he has to say. Should be interesting. Here is a NFC draft recap. I love the fact that the Niners were the only team to get an A.

  4. gotta love the Defense so far…..Clements is already hawking in the secondary, Manny is playing with some serious passion, Willis is making a concerned effort to learn everything, all with the help of the vets, and Smith is willing to take a back seat to Willis. This D will be completely different from last yr, and, aside from a few games, i cant say i wouldnt welcome the change…..

  5. Peter King of SI: “I think the 49ers will end up disappointed in Darrell Jackson, and I’m sure they’ll end up disappointed in Ashley Lelie. Jackson misses too much practice time, and Lelie won’t be tough enough for coach Mike Nolan.”

    Not suprisingly, both are already on the sidelines…

  6. i cant believe lawson went from 225 lbs to 247 lbs in one offseason NICE

  7. they said lawsons weight was 240 pounds last year.on http://www.sf49ers.com last year.

  8. i also just read that gore was chanting the defense,and he was excited about our new “d”.i cant wait to see some GOOD defense this year.i just hope our offense does its job this coming up year.i also hope dave baas gets some regular season play time this year.i also heard that manny lawson was ripped at 250 pounds,were can i go to see some pictures of him at?

  9. I just read the article and if they’re making each otere frustrated then that means they’re working hard DAMN WE’RE LOOKING GOOD!

  10. hell ya man the 49ers are on the right track i hope are wr can all get on the feald becauce they need to get in that rithum with alex smith hell ya go niners!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  11. I wood half to agree wit u… nuffin like habin’ are wr’s in rithum

  12. Smiley is gonna be out here, harris is worth to much because tackle is hard to have depth at. He just eat the pine for the season. I heard Baas lost body fat this offseason but has gained 12 pounds. That is amazing!! Sounds like he is faster and stonger then ever. He can start RG and then wragge can be back up for LG and RG. Then if Allen were to get injured then snyder would go the play LG.

  13. giants are looking for to trade or free agent at offensive tackle,trade kwame to the giants for a second or third round pick,unless we can get a first round for him,wich i think is not going to happen.

  14. plus did you notice on 49ers.com site that staley has his own artical like lawson does,sounds more like staley might be starting soon.

  15. we should make that move because then we will dump a major salary and get a draft pick. Next year we are going to REALLY know what our needs are and they will be fewer than what this year was. We need some higher picks to fill those needs after this coming season. However, I am really hoping that Larry Allen stays for one more year.

  16. With a new, more powerful defense, I feel our offense should learn to deal with the better D’s in the league. It always takes more time for the O to develop, and hopefully playing against a much improved D will give use a head start.

    I’m somewhat worried about the new WR’s we picked up, but maybe they are just holding them out as a precaution…

  17. i just hope our passing game improves,alot of defenses are going to focus on frank gore this year,last year frank gore surprised alot of teams,now he will be defenses main focus.thats why im not counting on him getting 2200 yards this year……but T.M.O.

  18. Realisticly, our team has talent but doesn’t have chemistry, swagger, or a “sure” identification yet so don’t get your hopes up to high about this season. I believe that we still have a long way to go before the 49ers mature as a team. i’m just glad the madden ratings will be higher this season. w

  19. SEPT.10TH………….ON YOUR LOCALFORCAST;DARK AND CLOUDY IN ARIZONA`S LOCKER ROOM WITH GOOD CHANCES OF A 49ER UPSET IN SANFRANSISCO.SEPT.16……….HIGH WINDS UP ST.LOUISES ENDZONE WITH CHANCE OF A HEAVY TEARS FROM ST.LOUIS FANS.SEPT.23RD……….THEN WE TRAVEL TO PITTSBURG,HEAVY FOG AT TIMES,HEADING INTO CLOUDY CITY WITH STEELERS FANS WONDERING WHY THE NINERS BEAT THEM SO BAD,BUT COULD NOT SEE IT WITH HEAVY FOGS.SEPT.30 TH…………IN SAN FRANSISCO MUD SLIDES FOR THE SEAHAGS WITH PARTLY RETARTED WASHINGTON FANS,SLAPPING EACH OTHER BACK,SENSELESS IN SEATLE…SOOOOOOOO HERE`S YOUR MONTHLY FORCAST FOR SOME MAJOR 49ERS ASS KICKING

  20. J.JENNINGS……………………………………………………….L.ALLEN…………………………………………………………HEITMANN…………………………………………………………D.BAAS…………………………………………………………J.STALEY……………….

  21. i dont get into the AFL but there is nothing on tv and colorado is playing chicago on espn…we should pick up damien harrell from colorado he is great 6’3″ fast and john elway says he has the best hands he has ever seen in his entire career 2 time offensive player of the year also…i dont know if he would be on you tube but you guys should check him out…i know it has nothing to do with anything but like i said there is nothing on and i am bored….GO NINERS

  22. alot right now is up to what Alex Smith can do and what he cant do its up to him to take us to the next level is he ready to step up and the QB of the future?

  23. i been on alot of websites about us (49ers) and all i keep reading is that how many wins we are going to get and all the players we picked up but guys hold up…………….there is one thing that i dont see alot of and thats talk about Alex Smith we will only go as far as he takes us we can not 4get he is young and how is he going to act with the new weapons ………..please we have to hope he is ready to have that breakout year

  24. Alex will be fine. The whole team in general is alot faster. Their also hungry for the playoffs. I think We are set at linebacker with Lawson,Parys,WIllis,TBC,Green,MOORE and Moore. I think Ulbrich will be cut. They’ll keep Smith for his leadership this year and next year he’s gone.

    Imagine Alex’s weapons this year D-jak,Lelie,Battle and V.Davis on third downs with Mr Robinson as the tailback. Looks good.

  25. i agree with you pintor98 i do but my thing is this ………..i;m hearing all this about everyone else but him the QB is the leader of a team he is the one guys turn to when things go bad this has to be his team ….yes your right the weapons around him look good but is he doing what he has to do to get them the ball in the right spot …..is he doing what he has to do the get in the film room to be able to read the defence when he comes to the line …..those are just some of the thimgs he has to be able to do….i hope you understand were i;m coming from?

  26. niner football gives me a boner!

  27. Mike Nolan is the second coming of Bill walsh Football! He brings back the work ethic, discipline, class, and character to this team which we lost since we had Steve Young. I was watching the 49ers.com website and everyplayer that I saw speaking was so humble, and had that disciplined bootcamp mentality. You can see the desire and passion in there eye to win another championship. This team reminds me of the 81′ superbowl team. that team had something to prove. At that the talk of the NFL was the Dallas Cowboys, and no one expected the 49ers to go anywhere, until the playoffs came along. I’m very excited about this team and I know this year will be the start of our dynasty coming back Again!

  28. mike nolan is the second coming of bill cower or like his dad,walsh was offensive mind genius…….nolan is a defensive minded, like cower and his dad.

  29. WELL ASUMING EVERYONE CAN STAY HEALTHY IM CALLING PLAYOFFS THIS YEAR THE 49ERS ARENT THE ONLY TEAM GETTING BETTER WE PLAY A TOUGH SCHEDUAL THIS YEAR SO ITS GONA BE A DOG FIGHT ALL YEAR BUT A GOOD ONE A YEAR WHEN YOU WANA WATCH CAUSE YOU KNOW EVERYWEEK WERE GONA FIGHT ALL GAME AND EXPECT TO WIN WHICH IS A NICE CHANGE FROM THE LAST FOUR YEARS I THINK I LIKE THE DIRECTION WE ARE GOING WE STILL NEED THAT WR. THE BIG GUN TO GO TO WE GOT DAVIS TE. HE SHOULD HAVE A MONSTER SEAON IF HE STAYS HEALTHY SO SHOULD GORE AGAIN AND I CANT WAIT TO SEE THE D IN ACTION HEALTHY I LIKE OUR CHANCES AGAINST ANYONE WILLIS LAWSON MOORE CLEMENTS HARRIS SPENCER BOTH LEWIS’S CANT WAIT 49ERS4LIFE

  30. plus everytime i turn on espn its all about dallas,eagles or new york giants or the broncos or thepats.thats why i hate espn mark slearith,ron jawarski,darren woodson its all nfc north left overs,than on channel fox you got troy ackman or the cowboys ex fullback johnson. ITS BASICLY COWBOYS T.V. ANYMORE,THATS WHY I STICK WITH NFL NET.

  31. F__ ck the cowboys! Those cocksuckers!

  32. Jerry, there is one thing those teams have in common, they are all contenders. The Niner’s will be on that same level this up coming season. Don’t sweat it brotha! I don’t know about you, but I like being under the radar!

  33. jeremy-
    don’t worry about Smith. If he was struggling you’d here about it. But if he’s doing his job you won’t. No news is good news in the off season. You’ll here plenty about how improved he is when the season starts and he is throwing 2 td’s and 275 yards a game!

  34. JUSTIN SMITH OF THE BENGALS JUST SIGNED A ONE YEAR DEAL,MAYBE NEXT YEAR WHEN BRYANT YOUNG RETIRES WE COULD SIGN HIM.JUST A THOUGHT!HES NOT A RAVEN OR OVER 30 YEARS OLD.SO I DOUBT IT.

  35. Briefly: Jackson (toe) hasn’t played a down yet, but already has contributed to the team. He called a meeting with the receivers and told them to spend time studying opposing defenses. … Dats what u want out your leaders, dont trip WR cor, offense finna b just fine

  36. i cant wait to see the giants game this year.we got two,first over all draft pick going up aginst each other, alex smith vs eli manning,then we got ego vs ego jeremy shocky vs vernon davis,then you got two underacheving former first round picks in wide outs in lelie vs p.burress. this should be a really good match up on october 21st.

  37. does anyone know what’s up with antonio bryant? just curious if he’s talking to anyone or what.

  38. true about Alex Smith.he’s our quarterback.If(and I don’t think he will)he doesnt produce,we should not give up on him.we should stick behind him.because who is going to replace him?Trent Dilfer.

  39. we are on are way.don’t get your hopes up too much boys.But I don’t think the niners will disappoint.

  40. straighthate,i dont think any one wants to sign a player that is going to be suspended for the first two regular season games.i would think that maybe after the two game suspention,then he might sign some where.Beanie,i think our record will be 8-8 or 9-6 this season,we still need a leading wide receiver that is not injured as much as d.j. and dont drop as many balls as d.j. or lelie.

  41. Here he comes again. Mr 49ergoldrusher, aka lonetexasninerfan, aka 49erdynasty. I can always tell it’s you because you can’t fucking shutup about the cowboys. Does anyone else on here talk about them? Alex Smith is our QB. He is very smart, and will be one of the premier QB’s in years to come. Vernon is going to have one hell of a year this season. He may get close to the thousand yard mark in my opinion. We don’t need a thousand yard receiver if that happens. Three seven hundred yard recievers in combination with Vernon could dominate the west. And Frank makes up for what the passing game lacks, with his monster runs. Don’t worry abouth offense this year, it’s all under control. Just the fact that they will have the ball so much more this year, thanks to the massive improvement to the defense. We are back and everyone else is finally acknowledging it for the first time in how long? Niner are going to dominate again….can’t you feel it? September can’t come soon enough.

  42. WE GOT TO GO THROUGH (PRESEASON)AUGUST FIRST!!!!!! TO MAKE SURE THRERE IS NO MAJOR INJURIES BEFORE THE REGULAR SEASON FIRST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  43. GGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGGOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO44444444444444444444444444999999999999999999999999999999999999999999EEEEEEEEEEERRRRRRRRRRRSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSSS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  44. It appears that Dilfer played a practical joke on Alex. 🙂

    On Saturday, Smith’s hands and feet were spackled with what appeared to be blue ink, specks of which could also be found around his ears and on his face.
    “It’s that powder the FBI puts on money,” Smith said Saturday during the 49ers’ minicamp. “It’s invisible until it gets on your body and you mix it with water.”
    The gag is the work of veteran backup quarterback Trent Dilfer.
    “Yeah, Trent got me good today. My socks, everywhere. He’s the master of practical jokes.”

  45. dude thats kinda funny it shows how close are team is we can joke and still play hard and do all the things that mike nolan wants ya baby go niners!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  46. I’ve noticed a trend every time someone discusses the Cowboys, Bobby Booby Aka- Ryan the First and his mutiple personalitys Screenames takes it really personally. Booby Booby Boucher- Aka Ryan the frist and your other personalinalitys no one on this site wants you here, everyone ignores you unless you talk to yourself with your other screenames. We all know Ryan the First is your split personality you Wacko and the many other you create. You keep talking shit like a little kid you little piece of shit. I’ts easy to talk shit on the computer you little terd. You can only expect this from a Fairweather “Cowboy & 49er fan” like you and you are! He and his screenames are a fans of both teams. You can tell because everytime I mention the Hillbillies down in texas he gets really pissed and wines like a little bitch. If your a true Fan you hate the Cowboys with a passion- plain and simple! If I talk bad about those idiots you should support me and not get annoyed. See that proves my theory, you should’t be annoyed you should want to back me up, but instead you get annoyed and wine like a little bitch. I was a fan before you were in diepers you litte terd. Stop talking shit booby booby -AKA Ryan the first and your multiple persoanlity Talking to yourself screenames! Remember it’s easy to talk shit, respect you little terd, everyone ignores you, but I’m sure you and your split personality screename Ryan the First will create some more screenames and keep talking shit and agreeing with yourself on and on and on, it gets old-grow up Keep talking shit to yourself Me and everyone on this site will continue to laugh at you and your screenames, Very Sad! Grow up and talk sports, not shit you can’t back it up Youngster and you never will! Get your Booby-Boucher-Ryan the first and Multiple agreeing Screenames -Cowboy & 49er fan Ass off the site once and for all. We are praying and Waiting terd!

  47. It’s turd you fucking douche nozzle. That’s a pretty long message for a rube. How long did you work on that one? Two or three hours? I do hate the Cowboys, but it’s not the only thing I focus on. I live,eat, and breathe 49er football. When we play the Cowboys, on gameday I will hate them more than any other team. Till then, why obsess about it. Oh and by the way hick, it seems like people talk to me and Ryan and ignore you. Why do you always believe the exact opposite is true in every situation? My guess is because you are an ass backward gay cowboy that loves to eat pudding. Next time you watch brokeback mountain in your cowboy jersey and after you’ve rubbed your dick raw why don’t you stick a shotgun in your mouth and blow your head off, you old stupid queer.

  48. Here we go again, LOL- Sad!

  49. I love pissing you off – Thanks for the correction – Turd! We’ll keep ignoring you and Multiple personality Ryan! Go on talikng to each of your different screenames, Me and the rest of the site will continue to laugh at loud at your Punk ASS & your Multiple Screenames talking to each other agreeing! Talk football and grow up- you continued to talk shit punk not me! Talk sports not Shit!

    Ashley Lelie was a good number 2 wideout in Denver i hope he gets back to that level
    Jason Hill he is young and fast and i hope he can take that slot and go with it and with in a year or two becomes our number 1
    V Davies steps up this year and catches more than 20 passes like last year this guy can take that postion and do some things and i
    Frank Gore nuff said about him
    but guys think about that line up who are you going to stop we dont really need a true number one with that line up if everyone comes to play and comes to WIN

  53. I think we need to bring back our wideout Maxwell from NFL Europe.

  54. i think we need to bring back john taylor and jerry rice from 1989,hahahahahahahahahahahahahhahahahahah,,,,,,live in the presant not the pASS.ssssssssssssssooooooooo who do you guys think will have the most droppes this year terrell owens,lelie or darrell jackson?

  55. I don’t want to jinx us by saying T.O., but I will say Lelie. I hope I’m wrong!

  56. Is this kid Dominique Zeiglar out of baylor any Good!

  57. THAT KID IS JUST A ROOKIE FREE AGENT, HEADED TO THE PRACTICE SQUAD LIKE M.MAXWELL OR C.J. BREWER.AND THE OTHER QUESTION IS;WHO WILL CATCH THE MOST BALLS THIS YEAR?IS IT GOING TO BE GORE AGAIN?I HOPE NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!I SAY IT WILL V.D..

  58. IT WILL BBBBBEEEEE VERNON DAVIS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  59. I was wondering what effect of a first year offensive corrdinater brings to our young and talented team. I think this will be our only obstacle to over come. What do you cats think?

  60. FIRST OFF,THIS WILL BE HIS SECOND TIME BEING AN OFFENSIVE CORDINATOR(NOT FIRST TIME).SECOND IT WILL BE A LEARN AS YOU GO OFFENSE.I,M.O. THIS WILL BE A MORE BALANCED ATTACK,INSTEAD OF RUN,RUN.THEN THROW IF WE HAVE TO,I FEEL ANYWAY.I WOULD LOOK FOR A SLOW START THIS YEAR ON OFFENSE BUT GET BETTER WITH MORE OPIRTUNITIES.

  61. Where did he calls plays before he was here?

  62. sorry,that was college where he was an offensive cord……………..my bad!!!!

  63. No prob. I think Dilfer will have his share of opinions on what to do as well. I guess we will just have to wait and see.

  64. Did anyone see the “Power Rankings” that Prisco came out with today? Man, I remember how bad he was last year, but he ranked the 9ers 19 and the Cards 13??? I said it before, I think the so called experts are off their rocker…

  65. barlow just signed a one year deal with pitt. steelers.ahahahahahahahahahhahahahahahahahah

  66. Hey DC,its okay that he gave us no.19..I really dont like the “experts” saying were gonna do this or were gonna do that this year..I’d rather have them saying that were NOT going to do anything this year, so we could.. 1.Prove them wrong 2.Shut them up 3.Make them eat their words…Dont worry, I bet Prisco has his fork and plate ready too..and ONE more thing…does anybody else here HAYTE Charles Barkley as much as I do?Because I know we have a lot of Nor-Cal people here!!!

  67. lol..Thankz BIGBIG, Barkley a joke…..another Keyshawn…all good…dem migetz r running thingz…hope 2 c Sunz next…cant c us matching up well against Spurz…Sunz an G.S look SAME an run alot…cant wait

  68. Yeah BIG, I’m not a fan of Barkley… I guess if we still look like a underdog team, that means we might be underestimated, catch some teams by surprise. He’s not far off on predicted wins, I’d have said 10 wins, but our ranking for him predicting a 9-7 season was a joke…
