  • Leftists Forget Kaepernick's Mockery of NFL Tryout as They Attack Tebow

    As liberals continue to attack the Jacksonville Jaguars and Tim Tebow over supposed “white privilege,” they ignore the fact that Colin Kaepernick made a mockery of the NFL’s offer to continue his career. Twitter went wild on Monday when news broke that the Jags were set to give Tebow a shot at renewing his pro football career. Many leftists accused the NFL of indulging “white privilege” for allowing Tebow to get another shot at the NFL while Colin Kaepernick remains unsigned. But what these detractors have ignored to push their narrative is that Colin Kaepernick refused repeated opportunities to continue...

    After a slew of new COVID-19 restrictions in Santa Clara County, where Levi's Stadium is located, the San Francisco 49ers are heading south for their next few "home games." On Monday morning, the Niners announced they would be playing their Week 13 game against the Buffalo Bills and their Week 14 game against the Washington Football Team at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Ariz. That stadium is where the Arizona Cardinals, San Francisco's division rivals in the NFC West, host their own home contests.
  • Navajo Code Talker says Redskins name not derogatory

    A leader of the Navajo Code Talkers who appeared at a Washington Redskins home football game said Wednesday the team name is a symbol of loyalty and courage — not a slur as asserted by critics who want it changed. Roy Hawthorne, 87, of Lupton, Ariz., was one of four Code Talkers honored for their service in World War II during the Monday night game against the San Francisco 49ers. Hawthorne, vice president of the Navajo Code Talkers Association, said the group's trip was paid for by the Redskins. The four men met briefly with team owner Dan Snyder but...

    The San Francisco 49ers are doing all they can to embrace the Black Lives Matter movement and elevate its status to new heights. Specifically, on Monday, they elevated the Black Lives Matter flag to the top of Levi’s Stadium right next to the California and American flags.
  • Could Tom Brady and Jimmy Garoppolo trade places? Don’t discount the 49ers buzz

    Tom Brady to the 49ers. Jimmy Garoppolo back to the Patriots. Talk about a whopper. There’s been growing speculation this fantasy scenario could happen, with the buzz hitting a fever pitch on Tuesday thanks to all types of reporting and conjecture from multiple outlets. Tom Curran of NBC Sports Boston said during a SiriusXM NFL radio interview he thought the 49ers were “closing hard on the outside.” What do my sources say? Curran “might be onto something.” Translation? Forget good friend Mike Vrabel and the Titans for a minute. If the Niners’ interest is mutual and real, which appears the...
  • Trump pardons Eddie DeBartolo Jr. over gambling fraud case

    President Trump granted clemency to former San Francisco 49ers owner Edward DeBartolo Jr. for his conviction more than two decades ago in a gambling fraud scandal, the White House announced Tuesday. DeBartolo, 73, gave up control of the 49ers in 2000 over his involvement in a gambling fraud case with former Louisiana Gov. Edwin Edwards. Rice, who won three Super Bowls with the 49ers, told reporters at the White House that “I take my hat off to Donald Trump for what he did.”

    Colin Kaepernick’s Glaring Absence at the Super Bowl The last 49ers quarterback to take the team on a run to the big game has been largely absent in the run-up to Super Bowl LIV; ‘They’re trying to erase him’    By  Andrew Beaton Updated Feb. 1, 2020 1:50 pm ET   MIAMI—During the 49ers’ run to this Super Bowl, there has been one glaring absence: Colin Kaepernick. Seven years ago, Kaepernick took the 49ers to the Super Bowl. It was the last time San Francisco made it here. But Kaepernick has been missing from the week-long hoopla ahead of...

After Joy Villa wowed everyone in her pro-Trump dress at the Grammy Awards this past weekend, Frank Clark, defensive end for the Kansas City Chiefs, wore some Trump swag of his own during a Super Bowl press conference last Friday. The big moment went viral on social media Thursday when Benny Johnson shared footage of the moment on Twitter.

    The Super Bowl is just days away, and while there’s a heavy haze over the country right now after the tragic death of Kobe Bryant, his daughter Gianna, and 7 others, the players are still getting ready for the biggest game of their careers. Media is everywhere and it’s a chance for Christian athletes to use the platform to spread their faith. Chiefs offensive linemen Stefen Wisniewski shared his faith in Jesus while talking to Jason Romano from Sports Spectrum. When asked about what the Lord has been doing in his life this year, Wisniewski didn’t hesitate to elaborate. “It...

    1. Less than an hour after the league's rushing champion was eliminated from postseason play, the 49ers provided fresh evidence supporting the idea that a star running back isn't necessary -- well, mainly because Raheem Mostert isn't yet a "star." Mostert raced 36 yards off tackle past Packers defenders for the game's first score and set the tone for what would be a historic day for the runner who was waived by four teams before landing with the 49ers. San Francisco pounded the run into oblivion, racking up 39 total rushes, with 29 going to Mostert. San Francisco's offensive line...

    Father Bill McGuire was sitting in the upper level of the press box at Kezar Stadium watching his hometown team play the Chicago Bears. Things were not going well. The 49ers fumbled the opening kickoff, and the Bears swiftly scored. Less than two minutes into the game, the Niners were down 7-0. Chicago then forced a punt and scored again. Now, it was 14-0. In the lower level of the press box, Tony Morabito, founder and principal owner of the 49ers, sat with his wife, Josephine, and his brother and partner, Vic. He could not have been happy. Morabito --...

    Zoë is the NFL’s first emotional support dog. The smallest 49er offers a big assist to players and staff alike at Levi’s Stadium. The one-year-old French bulldog spends most of her time in the player engagement office where the team can visit her between practices and before and after games. She is working this week, leading up the big NFC Divisional Playoff at Levi Stadium on Saturday. The Niners are the first team in the NFL to have a registered emotional support pooch. Zoë’s talents are many: they include an irresistible charm, the ability to carry a ball quite a...

    In my post yesterday about Colin Kaepernick’s upcoming NFL workout session, I confessed to not knowing the NFL well enough to opine on whether it makes sense for a particular team to sign Kaepernick. However, there’s one team I know very well — the Washington Redskins. There is no good reason for the Redskins to sign Kaepernick. They have won just one game this season and, in an optimistic scenario, they might win three. The rest of the season will be devoted to providing experience for their number one pick in the 2019 draft — quarterback Dwayne Haskins. He will...

    No college football fan will forget Baker Mayfield leading Oklahoma to a win at Ohio State, then planting an OU flag on the Buckeyes’ field. Nick Bosa surely hasn’t forgotten. Bosa was a star at Ohio State. He was the second overall pick of the NFL draft this year by the San Francisco 49ers. And he was fantastic against the Browns and Mayfield on Monday night, when the Niners blew out the Browns, 31-3. Late in the second quarter, Bosa pressured Mayfield again, hit him and forced an incompletion. Bosa got up and did a celebration that Ohio State fans...

    An attorney representing former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick sharply criticized rapper Jay-Z on Tuesday after Jay-Z met with NFL officials to speak about social justice issues while Kaepernick remains unemployed. SNIP Mark Geragos, who is representing Kaepernick in his dealings with the NFL, told ABC News that the partnership amounted to crossing an "intellectual picket line." "This deal between Jay-Z and the NFL crosses the intellectual picket line," Geragos told ABC. "I can confirm to you that the deal was already done prior to any conversation that [Kaepernick] had with Jay-Z and he certainly didn’t have any conversations...

    Former NFL player Devon Cajuste is trading the ultraphysical for the metaphysical. Cajuste, a Seaford, LI, native, who walked away from the game in January, has spent the first few months of his retirement working as a crystal healer. He’s using his arsenal of 100 precious stones and gems — worth more than $20,000 — to tap into the transcendental energy of an entirely different fan base. “Football was not my passion,” says Cajuste, 26, a towering 6-foot-4 former tight end. “The feeling that I got from [crystals] was greater than any play I made in the game.” A little...
