There was a lot happening at Day 9 of Camp in the 49ers' practice field. With more contact scrimmages and some protective gear on, there was a lot more intensity and hitting on the field. So much so that Coach Harbaugh had to send quite a few players to stand in the corner to cool off. Both the offense and defense got good work in and a few players are beginning to stand out. The biggest roster questions are still the backup of Frank Gore, replacement of Glenn Dorsey in the rotation, and who will take over NaVorro Bowman's spot for half the year. We should get a clearer picture on who the coaching staff is zeroing on when the first preseason contest against the Baltimore Ravens takes place.

Since it's still the preseason, I'll start you off with some rah-rah optimism on how Harbaugh plans to coach this team for a long time to come and how this just might be the year the 49ers take advantage of this uber-talented roster.
