Morning Tailgate: May 4

Posted by Taylor Price on May 4, 2012 – 9:40 AM

If three consecutive Pro Bowl appearances weren’t enough recognition for the efforts of 49ers defensive tackle Justin Smith, the first-team All-Pro can take pride in being honored recently in another way.

ProFootballFocus.com has listed Smith as the No. 2 overall player in the National Football League and top-ranked defensive player in the entire league.

It’s not hard to see why the football analysis site has Smith so high on the list. In 2011, Smith became the third player in 49ers history to record at least 6 sacks in four consecutive seasons. Smith finished the year with 105 tackles, 7.5 sacks, three forced fumbles and one fumble recovery.

Beyond the weekly production, everyone will remember his two clutch plays that sealed wins against the Philadelphia Eagles (fourth-quarter forced fumble on unsuspecting Eagles wide receiver Jeremy Maclin) and against the New York Giants (batting down an Eli Manning fourth-down pass in the closing moments of a Week 10 win). However, PFF has chosen Smith’s Week 6 outing against the Detroit Lions as his best game in 2011.

Sam Monson writes that Smith’s two sacks, six quarterback pressures, quarterback knockdown and strong performance against the run made it an all-around dominant effort. Monson also notes that Smith finished the year with 15 more combined sacks, hits and hurries than any other defensive end in a 3-4 system.

Smith’s presence on the 49ers has certainly benefited the team’s interior offensive linemen who face him in practice. More on the 49ers upcoming position battle at right guard can be found after the jump.

Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com previews the upcoming competition at right guard and shares his rationale on why Alex Boone makes more sense at right guard than right tackle Anthony Davis. Maiocco believes Boone can still serve as the team’s backup tackle if named starter at right guard.

Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee caught up with former 49ers lineman Jeremy Newberry who spent time training 49ers fourth-round draft pick Joe Looney. According to Newberry, the Wake Forest guard ran a 4.9, 40-yard dash in their training sessions prior to Looney breaking a bone in his foot at the Senior Bowl. The injury prohibited Looney from working out for teams this offseason, but Newberry was very impressed with the skills and personality traits of the new 49ers lineman.

Lastly, 49ers.com’s Football School coverage continued with a look at cornerback Perrish Cox’s transition to a new team and linebacker NaVorro Bowman’s reaction to being named No. 85 on the NFL Network’s Top 100 Players of 2012 list.


The first week of 49ers Football School is in the books, but stay tuned to 49ers.com today for additional pictures and coverage of the voluntary sessions taking place in Santa Clara.

    a great article,,,justin smith is a beast,,and who could forget newberry’s nastiness,,the only thing I call into question is this ,,why would the guy who wrote this article refer to justin smith as a DT?? he is our RE in our base 3-4,,,it leads me to believe that he was looking at the webpage roster instead of knowing this fact for himself,,,shame on you for not knowing his TRUE posistion on our team

    not looken` for an argument here bro, I’ve never had a season ticket, But I am a Niner Faithful! What is a NIner Faithful ? A fan that sticks by his team, ‘through the bad years’ the good years are easy. the fans that know its da-stick ha ha.
    Come on everybody the good times are here again, on with the show, good health to you all.

    Sad news guess every here knows,? that 8 of the Charges that played in the SB against us, are now dead! Makes me wonder is football getting to be too much of a health danger!
    I understand that ‘some’ of these guys make a sh%t load of money but still.
    I believe it was Hoover who almost put an end to football, the choice was to stop the flying wing or he would outlaw football.
    YEAH I KNOW, When football is outlawed only outlaws will play football. beat ya to it.
    peace out fellow 9er fans err Fellow Niners Faithfuler’s!

    not all the Charges of the 94 team dies of football related problems, still very sad though! All the sudden I’m hearing about CTE brain damaged from repeated head hits? And on top of that some 400(?) ex`players are suing the NFL for game related injures. More and more these things are coming out!

    I think he could do it, i didn’t realize how valuable Ginn was till the NFC champion game! But I don’t see him as a WR just doesn’t have the hands1

    @ NINERS ALL DAYYY,, your point about ginn is excellent,,,at last some REAL football talk,,we drafted 2 players who have the ability to return kick-offs and punts,,,ginn’s job may be in trouble,,,he is at best,,avg. at catching the ball,,could be some real heavy battles at training camp this summer

    Ginn’s much better then avg, for sure
    Now for rjd, I think he’s just a kid, though it does look like he’s playing me? Come-on I just want to talk some 9er talk! We got a great team and with out injures we got a good change to go all the way? ?

    Hear a lot of talk about LA getting a NFL team and maybe the Rams at that? The LA RAM’s boy do I miss that, there use to be so animosity between LA & SF!

    basil you are 100% correct about the rams,,,if they go below a certain amount of people going to the games this year they will be allowed to break their lease and move,,and LA voters have already said they dont want an expansion team

    now we are talking football,,thank god,,a.j. jenkins,,after knowing that I only watched 4 games from his final college season,,,I had to go back and watch some games of his,,,that guy catches everything near him,,but was scarcely used on returns,,ginn was ohio st’s. primary return man,,,lamichaeal james can kill it on the punt return,,and had been used on kick returns,,,I will say this about ginn,,he made some clutch catches for us last year,,but was more clutch on his returns,,but if jenkins will push ginn for playing time,,we could see more of james on returns,,leaving ginn the odd man out,,but hey,,thats what training camp is going to be for,,,moss,,crabs,,manningham,,these guys are most likely going to make the team,,leaving ginn,jenkins,swain,and any other WR’s we may have on the practice squad or free agent invitee’s,,looking forward to it

    Question to the posting gods, what are you doing with my post that I submit? and when I don’t see then posted and try to resubmit you say “sorry but you already posted that”
    Now we seem to agree on Ginn, but what I wonder is what will happen with Williams, Myself what happen last season is history, but I think we have to much talent for Kyle to make the club, and then there’s the concussions as well. I think if we cut its not gonna be pretty!

    Basil .Aim not playing you… Remember the rebuilding process the 49ers went through that’s what the RAMS are in…. my main concern is that every one stays healthy and when that final roster is set that’s when am going to get really excited don’t get me wrong am enjoying it now …for instance the right guard position that’s really going to be fun to watch . Take care

  81. By NINERSS ALL DAYYY on May 6, 2012 | Reply

    Well im almost positive we signed Ginn to a one year deal…I think that is to let James and whoever else develop under him and then the following year have them take over…I do not think we drafted Jenkins in the first round to put him on the practice squad so im pretty sure he will make the team…I think williams stays also and we carry 6 Wrs!!! Swain definitely goes to practice squad!!

  82. By the fanster on May 6, 2012 | Reply

    @ NINERS ALL DAYYY,,yup,I think that is the way things are going to turn out,,but ginn’s one year deal is very cut friendly,,if we keep 6 wr’s,,,and our 5 rb’s,,depth at other positions would suffer for it,,harbaugh and his staff have their work cut out for them

  83. By the fanster on May 6, 2012 | Reply

    good grief,,I forgot about brandon jacobs,,,6 rb’s,,,wow,6 wr’s 6 rb’s,,that is 12 roster spots,,I see the axe falling on on 2 wr’s and 2 rb’s

    As Bill would say, “we need all these guys if nothing else but for practice” as in who does our defense practice against? While our offense is over here ‘practicing? Damn it anyway man what the hell going on? If I could find that little guy that lives in the control room, I’d, I’d …. well anyway I better be careful!

    I was a poster in a (San Francisco Chronicle) 9ers chat room!
    We learned that Bobb McKittrick had cancer, I got this idea!
    I asked if anybody wanted to sign a card for Bobb, well yeah!
    I had posters e-mail me their e-mail address’s, must have had
    50 Names & address, I set up a route, starting in Florida. I put
    the 3? large cards, mailing list, stamps, and new address labels and forwarding directions in a manilla envelope, mailed it off.

    Pretty sure it went to all states, I know it went to 2 islands in
    Hawaii. Now other people heard about this and got in touch
    with me (none posters) and asked if they could sign, of course!
    So it got rerouted a few times, and I forget if I did 2 mailings
    one East and West to start with? Fans added their own cards
    people would say your card is cooler can I sign yours?
    It was sad but at the same time it was nice, and it was the only
    time we all agree on anything. As things like this get going they
    seem to take on a life of their own, and somebody would ask I
    have this bla, bla, can I add it? yeah go ahead, maybe a ticket
    stub or? People say almost out of stamp, I didn’t had time to
    get any so I put mine money in there. trying to keep this short!

    when it all came to me it was a big fat envelope, one of the posters gave me a Lady’s name and number at 9er HQ’s I called her and she gave me her address at 9ers HQ so I forwarded it all to her, I talked to her later on and she told me she gave it all to Bobb and I gave that to everybody.
    This is all true, too the best of my memory !

    this was too long to post so rather then say saying that it kept saying already posted, man! is there a word count here?

    As far as wideouts and Rbs I can def see 6 wideouts on the roster its not to uncommon in the league…however the running backs will have to be cut down to atleast 4…unless cartwright and dixon play special teams.

  95. By NINERSS ALL DAYYY on May 6, 2012 | Reply

    1-Moss 2-Manningham 3- Crab 4- Jenkins 5- Williams( the guy can fly) 6- Ginn ( Spec. Teams) RBs 1- Gore 2- Hunter 3- Jacobs 4- James (until he proves himself)

    cartwright is a career special teams ace,,,so his roster spot is secure Im sure,, we lost blake costanzo,,taps most likely is playing for dixon,,and I would love to carry all our wr’s on the roster,,what speed we would have

    you’re more than welcome ‘Fanster’! Bobb was the best offense line coach we ‘EVER’ had. 21 years with the 9ers!
    The Bobb McKittrick Award
    If any fan here doesn’t know who Bobb was, they should read this, without Bobb we don’t have 5 SB wins!

    question I have is who will be our #2 QB, myself I’m thinking Josh, probable because of his background with Coach. Isn’t it something that it seems like all the sudden we’re filthy rich with talent, seems like not to long ago we were picking up player off the street! it feels good to be relevant, eh?
