There is nothing the couch coach does better than the coach himself, except for clock management.

GameDay: The Raiders Are Becoming Must-See TV

The Raiders, despite all the preseason prognostications of a team in the hunt for the number one draft pick, have not only become respectable, but very watchable.

GameDay: Colin Kaepernick’s Rebound Game

Jim Harbaugh gave me a quizzical look when I suggested during an interview this week that Colin Kaepernick was suffering from growing pains. He assured me the Kapper was the present, the future and on target to take the 49ers to the next level.

GameDay: The Curious Case Of Matt McGloin

Before we get too excited about Matt McGloin becoming the 4th player since 1970 to throw three touchdowns with no interceptions in his first NFL start, you should know that one of the others was Todd Marinovich.

GameDay: Where Did The O-Line Go?

I could blog about the horrible call on Ahamd Brooks. But that’s low-hangin fruit. The 49ers 23-20 loss to New Orleans wasn’t’ made on one bad call alone.

GameDay: Don’t Blame Colin Kaepernick

Don’t forget to carry a flak jacket around 49er headquarters these days. The shrapnel is flying everywhere as Colin Kaepernick fends off his critics with his now trademark short responses.

GameDay: Let The Warriors Build A San Francisco Waterfront Arena

Here’s the bottom line: There is a dilapidated pier out there that the Warriors are willing to fix and construct a state-of-the-art arena that the city has never had. They are willing to pick up the $1 billion-plus tab and turn the eye sore into a unique arena that will include a park and stores.

GameDay: Braun’s Admission Won’t Change PED Problem

Lawyers draw up a statement and carefully avoid any mention of steroids. That’s the way it’s done so the “words” won’t come back to bite the cheaters in the rear end. Bruan, naturally, is being vilified because of his vehement denial last year when he walked because of a technicality. (Memo to the tester: Don’t store Bruan’s pee in your home fridge) His lawyers smartly worked out a plea deal with MLB that won’t extend to 150 games, thus saving him $4.5 million into next season.

It’s time for Hillbilly Jesus to come down from the mountain top and put a little bubblin’ crude into the A’s offense.
