Morning Tailgate: Feb. 27

Posted by Taylor Price on February 27, 2012 – 10:27 AM

Back from our annual trek to the NFL Scouting Combine, 49ers.com has all the best team headlines for you to peruse on this fine morning.

If you missed any of our combine coverage, check out our Combine Central page for blogs, stories, videos and photos from the league’s annual marquee pre-draft event.

And if you’re curious about Monday’s happening in Indy (Memphis defensive line prospect Dontari Poe ran a 4.86, 40-yard dash at 346 pounds) NFL.com/combine has a live telecast of the events airing right now.

With that being said, check out more combine headlines and 49ers headlines after the jump.

Jim Harbaugh’s efforts in the Bay Area are well-documented and will be recognized on June 13 when the NFL’s Coach of the Year will be the headlining inductee of the 2012 Peninsula Sports Hall of Fame Class according to the SF Examiner.

In other team news, 49ers president Gideon Yu previewed some of the key goals for the team’s new stadium in Santa Clara while conducting an interview with The San Jose Mercury News.

Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee feels this year’s draft prospects at wide receiver look promising for the 49ers. Barrows also highlighted the NFL Network appearance of Robert Griffin III, who believed the 49ers were interviewing him mostly to get information about his favorite target, wide receiver Kendall Wright.

Lastly, Dan Arkush of ProFootballWeekly.com offers a scouting report on 49ers free-agent-to-be Alex Smith.


Weeks after the birth of his second son, All-Pro, Pro Bowl punter Andy Lee appears to be on his way to golfing at prestigious Augusta National, home of The Masters.

    extra extra read all about it!! Coach Harbaugh shocks the football world by signing Peyton Manning as QB for the 49ers, vaulting them into the front runner for superbowl champs

    I’m not sure why people are so fired up about Manning. Everything I’ve read recently says he is not even close to where he was before his injuries. Evidently, he can’t throw to his left and he doesn’t have near the velocity on his throws that he needs to play in the NFL. Look at it this way: if he was even close to 100%, why wouldn’t the Colts at least play him for one more year while tutoring Andrew Luck. That would make a lot more sense than just throwing Luck in there and letting him get is brains knocked out by those AFC East blitzing maniacs they play 2 times a year. But, they’re evidently not doing that because Manning is just not what he has been a my never be again. It’s brutal, it’s not fair, but it’s probably reality.

    Peyton Manning has been historically a chock artist, is fragile and has zero mobility. Lets bring a 3 RING circus of distractions to SF and be disappointed like the Eagles were with their 3 RING circus last year. Yeah…Jeromy GREAT idea dumb@ss. That always works {sarcasm}.

    @Bill Batten the reason that the Colts are not going to have manning play another year is because they will have to pay him something like $28,000,000. That would be a huge hit, especially if they decided to draft Andrew Luck, cause he would cost several million as well. They could not make this work without hurting their future dramatically. That’s why it makes sense for them to trade him.
