Wednesday, June 21st, 2017

OAKLAND — If you needed a victory to save the planet, which all-time Bay Area team would get the call? Those who watched Golden State breeze through the NBA playoffs like it was a Pop-A-Shot game might put their fate in the hands of Kevin Durant, Stephen Curry and the Warriors’ force field defense.

Mike Shanahan’s official role with 49ers: Father of head coach

Friday, June 16th, 2017

SANTA CLARA – Kyle Shanahan always wanted to coach football with his father. But, first, he knew he had to prove himself without any boost from his well-known dad. Once the son established himself as one of the NFL’s respected offensive minds, the Shanahans teamed up for four up-but-mostly-down seasons with Washington.

He gave me a lot of leeway while I was there. It was fun to try a bunch of different things,

Thomas’ first full-squad practice with 49ers must wait

Tuesday, June 13th, 2017

SANTA CLARA – Before the 49ers hit the practice field on Tuesday, safety Eric Reid talked about how offensive play-caller Kyle Shanahan is always trying to set up the defense to surrender a big play. The use of the run game to lay the groundwork for a big play through the air became apparent Tuesday during the first day of the team’s mandatory minicamp. After run plays for Carlos Hyde and Tim Hightower, 49ers quarterback Brian Hoyer used a play fake to and coax a blown assignment in the secondary, allowing rookie tight end George Kittle to break free for a 60-yard touchdown. A short time later, Hoyer struck down the field again, this time with a pass that traveled 45 yards in the air for speedster

Monday, June 12th, 2017

SANTA CLARA -- Running back Carlos Hyde enters the final year of his contract, and the 49ers have created flexibility in their plan for future seasons.

Hyde rushed for 988 yards and six touchdowns with a 4.6-yard average in 13 games last season. Now, he must prove himself to a new coaching staff, including his fourth head coach in four seasons.
