I am so happy to have football back again that I have been scouring the internet many times per day searching for the latest stories and videos. There are a number of regular beat writers I follow both on twitter and on internet sites like 49ers.com, Niners Wire, KNBR, Sacramento Bee, Mercury News, San Francisco Chronicle, Pro Football Talk, and even the Press Democrat this time of year.
In addition to the articles, I am always searching for videos and have been the most successful finding them on 49ers.com, YouTube and, believe it or not, Grant Cohn has come up with some great live videos and interviews. Between the three it seems like we are getting at least four interviews a day along with plenty of videos from that day’s practice. My favorites have been the Kris Kocurek videos. I love that guy! If anyone has any other sources they would like to share in the comments, it would be very much appreciated.
I do not have a subscription for the Athletic mainly because of my past contempt for Tim Kawakami. Does anyone have a subscription that would want to leave a little advice in the comment section as to whether they think the subscription is worth the money or just more of the same stories that you can get off the internet for free?
Getting back to the 49ers, I think it is still way too early to start deciding who is going to win the position battles just based on a few days of work. Like Robert Saleh said in his interview yesterday, things should start shaping up around the week we have joint practices with the Denver Broncos. If you are wondering why I included a link to Brick by Brick, I just wanted to make sure everyone had a chance to watch it. Now onto those sizzling hot links:
