The San Francisco 49ers Get Big News from the Front Line

On Tuesday the San Francisco 49ers announced they have signed defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey to a two-year extension that runs through the 2016 season.

Dorsey is scheduled to make $2.65 million this season, but suffered a torn bicep early in training camp. Initially, the injury was believed to have sidelined the big 297 pounder for the remainder of the year, however, the Niners still have hopes that he can return in the latter part of the season.

According to NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport, "Glenn Dorsey needs one more MRI to see how his torn bicep is healing before (the) Niners decide if he can return."

If the 49ers decide its worth seeing if Dorsey can return, they can use the injured-reserve/designated-for-return-tag, instead of placing him strictly on IR and opening up a roster spot. With the "return" designation, Dorsey would be required to miss at least eight games, regardless if he is healthy or not.

Should the San Francisco 49ers Be Concerned About the Backup Quarterback Position?

Having a former top-10 draft pick as your primary backup at quarterback certainly sounds like a luxury to have, but when that player finishes an outing with a 32.4 quarterback rating and its seen as an improvement, you may start to question a few things. Such is the case for San Francisco 49ers quarterback Blaine Gabbert.

Gabbert was the tenth overall pick in the 2011 NFL Draft by the Jacksonville Jaguars. After spending three rocky seasons with the Jags, the Missouri product was traded to the Niners for a sixth-round pick. The 49ers were in the in market for a backup after letting fifth-year pro Colt McCoy leave for free agency.

It is important to note that McCoy attempted ONE pass last season as the number two quarterback, and that occurred in mop up work. However, there is always the question of "what if?"

Gabbert certainly struggled to find a rhythm in the Niners preseason opener against the Baltimore Ravens. The 24-year old completed 3 of 11 passes for 20 yards, while throwing one interception, all adding up to a 1.7 quarterback rating. He followed up that performance by completing 8 of 14 passes for 40 yards with a pick, adding up to what was stated above, a 32.4 QB rating. His timing was off, the reads were questionable and the throws were spotty at best.

San Francisco 49ers Shutout in Levi’s Stadium Debut

It was truly a beautiful site. A breathe of fresh air without it slapping you across the face alongside a wrapper or a plastic bag from "The Stick." It was the debut of one of the most beautiful and high tech stadiums in the country; Levi's Stadium was buzzing with optimism and excitement as if the season had started today…then, the game started. A few hours later, the seats were nearly empty and the Niners ended with as many points as they started. It was a 34-0 beat down by the reigning AFC champs, the Denver Broncos.

"I didn't think we executed well enough in any area today." said Head Coach Jim Harbaugh.

There's only so much blame any one individual can bare during a preseason matchup with starters playing one to two series, if even that, and third string players coming in and out. Harbaugh would not highlight any player's short comings as he sighted plenty of times during his post-game press conference that collectively, things need to "tighten down" as units.

Here are some observations from Sunday's glorified practice.

What to Watch for During the San Francisco 49ers Second Exhibition Game

August 16th, 2014 at 10:31 PM

The San Francisco 49ers take on the Denver Broncos on Sunday with the winner…getting nothing, yet the loser…well nothing happens to them either. Yes, the result of the actual game may not matter, but here are still some aspects of the game that do.

Backing up Kaep: Its been a rocky week for Blaine Gabbert. After his Niners debut gave fans nightmares of a Colin Kaepernick injury derailing the entire season, the spotlight will be shinning bright over the fourth-year pro when he enters Sunday's affair against the Broncos at some point in the game. Gabbert over threw, got under and missed timed several passes against the Baltimore Ravens in the first pre-season game of the year for the Niners, resulting in a ugly stat sheet of 20 yards passing while completing only three of 11 pass attempts and a interception. You know it's bad when his final incomplete pass actually raised his QB Rating (which also brings into question the process of the stat, but that's for a different day entirely). All of which resulted in Gabbert hearing boos from fans who caught a glimpse of the Niners open practice on Friday. With Sunday's exhibition serving as Levi's Stadium's debut, Gabbert could once again hear it from the Niner faithful if he doesn't perform well. Veteran QB Josh Johnson spent time on the 49ers roster last season and is once again fighting for a spot on the team this year. Johnson completed six of eight passes for 68 yards, while rushing for 15 on two carries. He could see a boost in snaps if he plays well again.
