Are Jeremy Newberry’s shocking allegations really that shocking? For years players have shared with me the dirty little secrets that go on behind closed doors of the NFL locker room. The only difference now is that the secrets aren’t so secret anymore.
People like familiarity. That’s why Steve Kerr is the new coach of the Warriors. Owner Joe Lacob has known him for 20 years. General Manager Bob Myers did business with him when he was an agent, and Kerr was the GM for Phoenix. Kerr even knows Joe’s son, Kirk, who is the Warriors assistant general manager.
Whoever said winning cures all ills is wrong. Mark Jackson is living proof after getting the boot from the Warriors, despite 51 wins and a second straight playoff appearance.
The latest speculation over Mark Jackson’s future stems from his demotion of assistant Brian Scalabrine to Santa Cruz, and an article which used unnamed sources essentially saying Warriors management is not on Jackson’s bus. But the last time I looked, the wheels were still on and Jackson was still the driver.
The experts that cover the Giants said the team doesn’t have a hotshot replacement for Pablo. But I think they do. His name is Buster Posey.
The joke on Matt Schaub is that his uniform number will be “6,” in reference to all the pick-sixes he threw in 2013. But KPIX 5’s Dennis O’Donnell likes this trade, and here’s why.
I wish Jonathan Martin would have used his first interview with the 49ers to stand up and speak out against bullies everywhere.
What is it with sports and contracts? Why do we always talk about a coach or player leaving when he still has time on his deal? First it was 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh, now its quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
No team benefitted more from the three week layoff than the San Jose Sharks, who welcomed back Logan Couture and Raffi Torres. Couture missed 16 games after surgery on his hand while Torres missed the first half with a torn ACL.
From everything I read it’s all about money. Seven million, $10 million, name your price and the 49ers will have to pay it. Or is this about more than money?
