Patience is a virtue, and Brandon Jacobs has none.
Jacobs was suspended for the final three games of the regular season, after posting messages detrimental to the team via social media on Saturday. The players did not mind, though. In fact, the reaction in the locker room seems to be in favor of penalizing a player for not being on-
The Golden State Warriors' proposed new arena in San Francisco has drawn many concerns from many people and organizations, and the San Francisco Giants are reportedly the latest to join that bunch.
According to the Huffington Post, Giants president Larry Baer and the team's organization are concerned over the traffic that will increase substantially with the addition of another high-profile venue within blocks of
At 12 noon on Monday, 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh was not budging on the Brandon Jacobs situation, after Jacobs vented to the world about his playing time via social media on Saturday. A couple hours after Harbaugh's Monday press conference, the team suspended Jacobs for the final three games of the season.
If Brandon Jacobs was not on the outs with the 49ers, he certainly is now.
Jacobs, who has had just five carries for seven yards in two games played since being signed by the 49ers in the offseason, took to social media on Saturday to vent to the world about his dissatisfaction with the way he is being treated in San Francisco.
Sergio Romo is the San Francisco Giants' closer, but manager Bruce Bochy wants "to give him some help" in the bullpen.
The Giants were not active on Wednesday at the winter meetings in Nashville, Tennessee, snapping a streak of two straight days of re-signing key parts of their 2012 World Series team. But interesting reports were flying around to make up for the relatively down day on the transaction front.
One loss into the Colin Kaepernick era in San Francisco and
blame is spread around like the 8-3-1 team just lost an actual meaningful game.
for the 49ers’ 16-13 overtime loss to the Rams on Sunday can be found placed on
offensive coordinator Greg Roman for the less than creative play-calling, Jim
Harbaugh for allowing the poor option play call that eventually led to the
defeat, Delanie Walker’s dropped guarantee on a touchdown and Kaepernick
the 49ers have problems, and potentially even bigger ones if things continue to
go wrong in the coming weeks.
It was an interesting day for the San Francisco Giants at the winter meetings in Nashville, Tennessee, on Tuesday. Marco Scutaro has a deal on the table from the Giants that could reach three years and $24 million, and free agent Nick Swisher really wants to play for them.
Just one day after the team signed Angel Pagan to a deal worth a reported $40 million over the next four years, CBS Sports' Jon Heyman is reporting that the Giants have peaked the interest of another coveted outfielder, Nick Swisher.
For the first time this season, 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh was put on the defensive, admitting the blame for bad calls and directly answering the status of the team's quarterback situation.
Harbaugh did announce who his starter would be, announcing it would be Colin Kaepernick for next week's game at home against the Dolphins, but he did not waver when asked if Alex Smith had a chance of regaining the job of starting quarterback this season.
One loss into the Colin Kaepernick era in San Francisco, and all hell breaks loose ..... reportedly.
49ers offensive tackle Joe Staley is supposedly upset with Jim Harbaugh's decision to start Kaepernick's "hot hand" instead of returning to Alex Smith post-concussion. Staley and Smith are known to be good friends, and reports within the last week say that Smith is not taking the demotion too well. Staley is not, either.
Thursday seemed to be "Feel Sorry For Alex Smith Day" not just in the Bay Area, but across the country. The prim and proper quarterback that overcame such hardships in his first few seasons finally came around once he was given a chance to succeed ......... then was replaced by the better quarterback, Colin Kaepernick.
The San Francisco Giants have shown no indication they would like to re-sign former closer and two-time Tommy John surgery victim Brian Wilson to a contract by the Friday deadline. It sounds like Wilson has no intention, either.
Yahoo! Sports' Tim Brown tweeted Wednesday that Wilson's first choice for a new team would be with the Los Angeles Dodgers because of the team's
The Andrew Bogut injury saga continues to get worse for the Golden State Warriors. On Wednesday, Bogut answered questions from the media regarding a timetable for his return, and it most definitely will not be Saturday.
It did not seem like long ago that David Akers was deemed the 49ers' best offseason pick-up on their way to a NFC Championship appearance. Now, the 49ers are in the market for a new kicker to replace Akers, after his reliability took another major hit on Sunday in New Orleans with a missed field goal from 50 yards and a blocked field goal from 33 yards.
The 49ers lost two key supporting players on one play Sunday in New Orleans. Kendall Hunter and Kyle Williams both were injured on the same running play to the left side of the defense during the second half of the 49ers' gritty win on the road, 31-21.
The team announced that Williams injured his knee, while Hunter injured his ankle, but nothing more -- as per usual from Jim Harbaugh and the 49ers.
What was supposed to be 7-10 days of rest for Andrew Bogut's ankle became almost three weeks of a much-debated set-back.
The Golden State Warriors have managed to stay afloat, record-wise, while being without their big man underneath the basket. However, there is the feeling of a stand-still with the team until he returns to the floor.
Wednesday's festivities at the 49ers' practice facility in Santa Clara made it blatantly obvious that Colin Kaepernick would be the starter against the Saints on Sunday, despite the 49ers' intentions.
Sports Illustrated's Jim Trotter reported Wednesday night that Jim Harbaugh has told Kaepernick that he will be the starter vs. the Saints. Even worse for the other end of the quarterback controversy -- Alex Smith -- Trotter is
Buster Posey's historic 2012 season earned him a box full of accolades, and with the Giants looking to spend money to lock up their respective free agents, this offseason may be the best time to lock up Posey as well. How much do the Giants pay Posey? Probably the farm and then some -- but the years will be the most significant part of one of the biggest contracts offered in the MLB.
Can you blame the media for wanting to know if the Oakland Athletics will be moving from Oakland to San Jose, or even anywhere for that matter?
MLB commissioner Bud Selig is, although he understands the urgent nature of the topic. On Thursday, Selig did not seem in the mood to mess around with the topic or even give a blanket answer, as has been his custom since the issue became national news.
Brandon Jacobs has not received a carry this season, and it may all be coming to a head.
Jacobs was reportedly unhappy about the situation earlier this season, after he was declared fully healthy yet did not play a single down for the 49ers. But he shook off the reports in favor of being ready for the team in the long run -- the playoffs.
