No one outside the Oakland Raiders locker room thought they had a chance to win the Battle of the Bay in 2015, but that’s what happened Sunday at the Coliseum. The Silver & Black beat the San Francisco 49ers, 24-13, to win their second straight home game and improve their season record to 2-11.
San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh took exception to criticism of Colin Kaepernick following the quarterback’s somewhat brief media session on Wednesday.
Jim Harbaugh’s future employer is becoming as hotly debated as any election the fall, and like recent presidential races, bookies are now giving you the opportunity to gable on the outcome.
The thought that Navorro Bowman could return to help the 49ers out this season does not appear likely. The only real impact he could have would be if the team makes the playoffs and that’s a big if. When you put it all together, the best thing for Bowman and the 49ers is to call it a season and let him come back next year fully recovered.
The Oakland Raiders should have no interest whatsoever in “acquiring” Jim Harbaugh to coach their team in 2015, because they don’t have enough talent to justify the move—in addition to the draft picks they would have to give up to get the fiery coach. No, the Silver & Black should look elsewhere for a new leader, and they’ll need all their draft picks and current young players to attract the right coach, anyway.
In his weekly meeting with reporters Monday, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh didn’t have much to say about reports he could be traded to the Raiders or Jets.
Rumors are flying that the San Francisco 49ers might trade Head Coach Jim Harbaugh to the Oakland Raiders, and that’s just the icing on the cake for this Bay Area rivalry. The 49ers need a win to keep their playoff hopes alive, and the Silver & Black just need something to forget that beating they just took from the St. Louis Rams. The Sunday game at the Coliseum promises to be quite interesting.
“Personally, I think that’s a bunch of crap.” Remember those words? Spoken by Jim Harbaugh in September in response to Deion Sanders’ report that the 49ers’ locker room wanted their head coach out.
After managing only three points against the Seahawks last week, the 49ers are looking for answers on offense as they get ready to play the Raiders Sunday.
