Putting Baldwin's hot streak in context

In 2015, Doug Baldwin tallied 10 receiving touchdowns in a four-game span, a feat accomplished just once before in NFL history. Jerry Rice did it in 1987 en route to grabbing 22 TDs in just 12 games.


How good is Todd Gurley?

We've only seen one year of him, but it's not crazy to think Gurley might be the NFC West's best skill-position player, quarterbacks excluded. Dan Graziano breaks it down.

Kaepernick's deal is now a burden

When Colin Kaepernick first signed his extension, it looked like a team-friendly deal for a rising star. Now, the 49ers must pay $14.3 million for a QB who might wind up being the team's backup. Player-friendly contracts (Insider)

Blaine Gabbert a bargain? Huh?

Go ahead and laugh. You might assume Gabbert isn't valuable enough to be a bargain, but if he's the 49ers' starting QB in Week 1, San Francisco might have a steal on its hands. Friendly contracts (Insider)

Kelly facing same issues in S.F.

Chip Kelly may be long gone from the Eagles, but it looks like his situation in San Francisco isn't so different from the issue going on in Philly -- starting QB.

Chip Kelly actually did play college ball

San Francisco 49ers head coach Chip Kelly did indeed play during college at the University of New Hampshire. But that doesn't mean he played well. "Let's just say he was a better coach than a player," said Mike Murphy, New Hampshire associate athletic director for communications. Ranking all 32 NFL coaches as players

How far the 49ers' defense has fallen

NaVorro Bowman is still a good player, but he's not what he was a few years ago, much like the rest of San Francisco's defense. The Niners land near the bottom of Bill Barnwell's list. Ranking defensive triplets


Just how good is Russell Wilson?

Wilson laid waste to opponents down the stretch last season, but not everyone around the league is sold on the Seahawks' offense. Dan Graziano explains.

Chip Kelly's options are limited

Carlos Hyde and Torrey Smith have shown flashes, but neither looks like a star. Meanwhile, Blaine Gabbert seems most likely to start at QB. Luckily, Kelly is used to maximizing minimal talent. Ranking triplets

Smith is an open book on social media

Many players use Twitter for humor, but Torrey Smith isn't shy about using his account to speak his mind or address social issues. Social media stars

You can't tackle Hyde nor hair of him

Carlos Hyde doesn't often have space to maneuver, but when he does, he's very hard to get solid contact on. If he can stay healthy this season, and his offensive line shows some improvement, he'll give defenses fits. Hardest RBs to bring down

Kelly will go with QB who gives him best chance to win (1:41)
