Joey Porter Tells Vernon Davis ‘You’re the Best at Being Ugly’

Dolphins linebacker and NFL sack leader Joey Porter is known as much for his gum-flapping as he is for his on-field skills. So it should come as no surprise that he had some words for 49ers tight end Vernon Davis during the first quarter of today’s matchup.

But first, some background. Last week, Davis, in discussing the Dolphins defense, had this to say about Mr. Peezy: “I’m pretty sure I’ve gone up against a lot of other linebackers/defensive ends who are better than him … And I’ve pretty much won every battle.” San Francisco head coach Mike Singletary, after hearing Davis’ comments, said “I’m going to have to talk to Vernon this week and make sure that he doesn’t get in a jaw-jacking competition … Just play the game. Just play the game and let’s go. But Vernon’s a competitor, too, so it could be very interesting.”

Yeah, that didn’t happen.

Given Porter’s fondness for tight ends, and more importantly, his insistence on having thoughts on , this seems predictable. Via FOX Sports sideline reporter Chris Myers, who passes along these nuggets from the philosophers Joey and Vernon:Continue Reading

Frank Gore Will Not Play for San Francisco

Filed under: 49ers, NFL InjuriesThe San Francisco 49ers have won three of their past four games under interim head coach Mike Singletary, and a week ago helped play a major role in the outcome of the AFC East by pounding the New York Jets, 24-14. On Sunday, they can continue to play the role of spoiler for the AFC East when they travel to Miami, but they’ll have to do it without the services of their best offensive player, running back Frank Gore.

Adam Schefter of NFL.com reports that Gore made the trip with the intentions of testing his injured ankle in warmups, but, obviously, won’t be doing that.

Gore has rushed for 978 yards on 229 carries this season, while also hauling in 42 passes (second best on the team) for 367 yards. He’s scored eight touchdowns for the 49ers this year.

In Gore’s absence, San Francisco will be handing the ball off to seven-year veteran DeShaun Foster and Thomas Clayton, who was signed off the practice squad late this week. Foster has only carried the ball 37 times this season for 78 yards. That’s 2.1 yards per carry. Yikes. I hope, for the 49ers sake, that Shaun Hill brings his “A” game today.

Mike Singletary Gave Mike Nolan Game Ball After 49ers’ First Victory

Filed under: 49ers, NFC West, NFL CoachingAfter a 2-5 start, the 49ers fired Mike Nolan and the team has gone 3-3 in the six weeks since. The biggest win of the year came last Sunday against the Jets, and in addition to bringing a little joy to a hapless Bay Area football scene, it also greatly improved the chances that Mike Singletary will be more than an interim head coach.

Of course, maybe Nolan would still have the job if he had the cajones to tell offensive coordinator Mike Martz, “I know you’re an ‘offensive mastermind’ and whatnot, but I’m pretty sure that J.T. O’Sullivan isn’t very good. Call it a hunch. I’ll take my chances with Shaun Hill.”

But what’s done is done.

There is a happy ending of sorts for Nolan, however:Continue Reading

Shaun Hill Proves It Should Have Been His Job From the Beginning

Filed under: 49ers, NFL CoachingBack in training camp, the San Francisco 49ers made the rather curious decision to name J.T. O’Sullivan their starting quarterback despite the fact he had never really done anything in the NFL to warrant such a position. It raised a few eyebrows because they not only had a former No. 1 overall pick on the roster (Alex Smith), but also because Shaun Hill played well in his limited action a season ago. And while three games when the team had nothing to play for isn’t exactly a large sampling of data to examine, it’s still more than O’Sullivan had accomplished in his career.

Nonetheless, the 49ers gave the job to O’Sullivan, and for a couple of games, it looked like it wasn’t going to completely backfire on them. Mike Martz was delirious in his praise of the journeyman signal-caller, while the team won two of its first three games. Then, all of a sudden, O’Sullivan started to play like a guy who had played for eight teams in six years, turning the ball over at an alarming rate, while the 49ers dropped five games in a row.

This, of course, led to O’Sullivan taking a seat on the bench, and Hill taking over under center.Continue Reading

San Francisco 24, New York (Jets) 14: Mike Singletary’s Biggest Win Ever!
by @ 12:00 am (Category : Uncategorized )

Dec 8th 2008 12:00AM by Adam Gretz (author feed)
Filed under: 49ers, JetsIf San Francisco 49ers head coach Mike Singletary wants to have the “interim” label removed from his title, winning more games like this would certainly help the cause. The 49ers won their second straight on Sunday, and third in the past four games, handing the New York Jets a huge 24-14 loss.

Shaun Hill had himself a day for the 49ers, completing 28-of-39 passes for 285 yards and two touchdowns, while offensive lineman Joe Staley fell on a loose ball in the end zone in the first quarter, to help lead San Francisco to the win. Hill completed passes to ten different receivers in the win, and has been rock-solid for the 49ers since taking over as the team’s starting quarterback. This, of course, brings up the obvious question of: what the hell were the 49ers thinking back in training camp?

Isaac Bruce and Bryant Johnson each hauled in six passes for the 49ers, while Bruce finished with a game-high 70 yards. Frank Gore rushed for 52 yards on 14 carries, and also caught a 4-yard touchdown pass from Hill late in the second quarter, giving the 49ers a 14-7 lead heading into the half.

So, while the 49ers are starting to play some actual football late in the season, the Jets, on the other hand, appear to be heading in the exact opposite direction.Continue Reading

Mike Martz Loves His 49ers Players, Thinks They’re the Greatest

Dec 4th 2008 6:45PM by Adam Gretz (author feed)
Filed under: 49ers, NFL CoachingEarlier this season we had quite a bit of fun with 49ers offensive coordinator Mike Martz, after he laughingly proclaimed that journeyman J.T. O’Sullivan could be the best quarterback he’s ever coached. It was laughable because, well, Martz has coached Kurt Warner and Marc Bulger, two pretty good NFL quarterbacks.

While Martz knows infinitely more about football and quarterback play than I ever will, I’m quite certain O’Sullivan, owner of about 12 different sets of team authorized luggage, is not a better quarterback than Warner (two-time MVP, Super Bowl champion) or Bulger (steady NFL starter for about seven years) and, frankly, he never will be. Actually, if O’Sullivan duplicated Jon Kitna’s career (another Martz favorite) I’d be kind of surprised. So, right off the top of my head I’m thinking O’Sullivan, at best, is the fourth best quarterback Martz has had under his wing. Actually, if you include current starting quarterback Shaun Hill, well, you get the idea.

All of that aside, Martz, the mad scientist that he is, was at it once again today, when he told the local scribes in the bay area that 49ers center Eric Heitmann is “by far” the best center he’s ever coached. From Matt Maiocco of the :Continue Reading

Niners Win In Buffalo Is First Win For Western Team In the Eastern Time Zone

Filed under: 49ers, AZ Cardinals, Bills, Chargers, Raiders, Seahawks, AFC West, NFC WestOne of the tidbits that may have been glossed over during the NFL’s Week 13 is that the San Francisco 49ers went into Buffalo and beat the Bills.

They are the first West Coast team to win a game in the Eastern time zone this season. That’s right, the West Coast is now 1-15 on the East Coast.

San Francisco had lost earlier in the season in New York to the Giants. The Arizona Cardinals lost to Washington, New York (Jets), Carolina and Philadelphia. Seattle lost in Buffalo, New York (Giants), Tampa Bay and Miami. San Diego lost in Miami, Buffalo and Pittsburgh. Oakland lost in Buffalo, Baltimore and Miami. This Niners’ win in Buffalo was a first.

There are a few more cross-country games to look forward to. The Niners still have to travel to Miami, the Cardinals travel to New England and both the Raiders and Chargers head to Tampa Bay. It looks as if the West could be 1-19 at the end of the season.

Cowboys 35, 49ers 22: The Cowboys May Indeed Be Back

Nov 24th 2008 1:19AM by Sportz Assassin (author feed)
Filed under: 49ers, Cowboys, NFC East, NFC WestSan Francisco threw a few nice punches early in this game but failed to connect with a combo punch. Big pass plays put the Niners in the redzone but all they could do once they got there were a few field goals.

Then the second quarter started and the bottom fell out. A 75-yard touchdown catch and run by Terrell Owens gave Dallas the lead and a blocked punt for safety highlighted a 22-0 run before the half.

Dallas would win, 35-22.

Offensively, this is what the Cowboys were supposed to be all year. Tony Romo threw for 341 yards and three TDs. Terrell Owens caught seven passes for 213 yards (career second best to his 283-yard game as a member of the 49ers in 2000). Dallas was an amazing 9-of-18 on third downs.

The defense still isn’t totally there as the Niners had some huge passing plays early on. However, Dallas shut down Frank Gore to just 26 yards on the ground.

Don’t Let the Glasses Fool You: Mike Martz Isn’t That Smart
by @ 12:00 am (Category : Uncategorized )

Nov 23rd 2008 9:45AM by Ryan Wilson (author feed)
Filed under: 49ers, NFC West, NFL Fans, NFL CoachingA couple weeks into the season, back when fans were cautiously optimistic that was the year Mike Nolan finally found an offense, new offensive coordinator Mike Martz declared that J.T. O’Sullivan could be the best quarterback he ever coached.

It was at that moment, I suspect, that the grim reality of the situation was no longer obscured by things like “hopes” or “dreams.” No, naturally, Nolan was fired a month later, Mike Singletary took over the interim gig, and the 49ers continued their losing ways. To Singletary’s credit, however, he had the good sense to bench O’Sullivan, Martz’s crazy ideas be damned.

Shaun Hill, the same guy who many figured was the leading candidate for the gig in the spring, was promoted, and while he doesn’t conjure images of Montana or Young, he’s also not O’Sullivan. It’s a start. In fact, he’s done so well, Martz is admittedly shocked.Continue Reading

49ers Linebacker Jeff Ulbrich Trains in MMA, Knows He Can’t Hang With the Big Guys

Filed under: 49ersWhen former NFL player Johnnie Morton tried his hand at mixed martial arts, he found out the hard way that MMA isn’t a sport that a novice should jump into:

Morton’s former 49ers teammate Jeff Ulbrich is also interested in MMA, but while Morton apparently misjudged how difficult it would be to fight professionally, Ulbrich is under no illusions that the sport is easy.Continue Reading
