Silverman: Harbaugh Giveth And Harbaugh Taketh Away

Silverman: The College Game Is Preparing Quarterbacks Like Never Before

Victor Cruz On 49ers’ Secondary: ‘They Didn’t Have Much To Say In That Second Half’

“They weren’t saying much,” Cruz said. “I mean (in) the first couple of drives we were chatting a little bit, but after I scored one and we kept them out of the end zone pretty much the whole game they didn’t have much to say in that second half.”

Silverman: Jets Must Use Muscle To Stand Up To Bay Area Bullies

Shonn Greene is going to need to carry the ball 25 to 30 times and do for the Jets’ offense what Frank Gore does for the 49ers. It may not be pretty, but the Jets have to try to slug it out with the Niners.
