Morning Tailgate: June 4

Posted by Taylor Price on June 4, 2012 – 8:03 AM

One of the San Francisco 49ers’ quietest, but perhaps, most crucial offseason additions, wide receiver Mario Manningham, enjoyed some well-deserved time in the spotlight over the weekend.

Dan Brown of The San Jose Mercury News recently spoke with the former New York Giants wideout, who signed a two-year contract with the 49ers shortly into the free agency signing period following a dominant 2011 postsesaon. With an assist from the team’s video director Michael Bracken, Manningham and Brown discussed the athletic, play-making receiver’s 38-yard catch in last year’s Super Bowl, one that set up the game’s go-ahead touchdown.

“I don’t ignore it,” Manningham told Brown. “I know what I did: I won a Super Bowl with a nice catch. But I’m trying to get another one, man.”

More 49ers headlines can be found after the jump.

Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com shares the remarkable story of Jim Harbaugh attending the high school graduation of Tyler Schilahabel, a young athlete who was befriended by Harbaugh during his days at Stanford. Maiocco: “Fate brought Schilhabel to within close proximity of Harbaugh when he was airlifted to Stanford Hospital after an ATV accident left him paralyzed from the chest down in September 2010. But a friendship that has enriched the lives of both individuals has ensured that they remain in close contact.”

Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee takes a look at the opportunity outside linebacker Eric Bakhtiari, a former Harbaugh-coached player at the University of San Diego, has to make the team. Barrows: “Bakhtiari, you see, played for Harbaugh at the University of San Diego beginning in 2004. “He was a defensive end in a 4-3 scheme, and he had a tremendous college career,” Harbaugh recalled. “He was our best player on defense when he was down there. He had a great career. In fact, Bakhtiari was on a panel of players who actually interviewed Harbaugh in the spring of 2003 and gave the then-Raiders assistant their seal of approval before he was given the head-coaching job.”

The best sights and sounds from 49ers OTAs can be seen in this 49ers.com video.

    Who cares about goldson if he sits out he will only hurt himself. If we trade hime we get two extra draft picks. Whitch i dont see happening so i say sit out goldson and see if you get the $8m a year from another team. Lmao pro players so blind try making $40-80k a year and tryin to feed ur family. Get real u dont want $7 m u want $ 8m. A year. Lol stop buying exspensive stuff u dont really need. HUMBLE YOURSELF.

    goldson wont get paid untill he signs his franchise tag and reports.this front office has shown that to get the money,you gotta come get it. and if he doesnt report or sign his franchise tag,im sure trenton robinson would relish the opportunity to start at free safety for us,I,however,would like to see goldson sign,report,and let the financial stuff take care of itself. too many times I have seen guys hold out all the way through camp and play in the final pre-season game only to get hurt in the season opener,so to all you guys screaming for the front office to pay goldson,how about,HEY,DASHON,SIGN YOUR TENDER,REPORT TO O.T.A.’S,AND LET YOUR LONG TERM CONTRACT COME TO YOU.

    Caught a few glances of Alex throwing the ball in the “sights and sounds” video, and it looks to me like his front leg is still locking up stiff on delivery. So much for the throwing correction program Maiocco wrote about earlier in the offseason.

    Goldson is not going to get paid. I think they are going to try to develop Spillman and Robinson and maybe Jones. They got Spillman for years to come for very cheap He is a great talker and very speedy.

    Unless Goldson plays even better than he did last year, I don’t see them resigning this guy.

    Man…Justin Blackmon had a 0.24 & 0.26 alcohol level DUI? Thats really high. I called this guy was going to be a bust before the draft. I am not saying this closes the book on him by any stretch BUT its not a good sign. Glad he ain’t ours!

    @ davg g. yup I had this guy pegged as a problem as well. saw an interview with him before the combine and when asked about interests off the field and away from school the kid said he liked dance clubs,,a.k.a night clubs, not the kind of answer most GM’S would want to hear. going to night clubs means alcohol,late night driving and possible drunken altercations,thats 2 DUI charges in less than 2 years,RED FLAG,good luck with all that jaguars. I am happy with jenkins and the kid hasnt even played in a NFL game yet

    Goldson is the best safety in the League he is not going to let the money come he wants to get PAID and he deserves every penny….the Niners need to make him the next priority!!!

    Goldson dominates at his position, he is exciting to watch and truly “brings it”! But, it is “team” first, championships first, learn to play under control . . . two more years like last year and you will have that “blank check” you are looking for and will deserve it ! Get to work and show commitment to the winning organization and team you are a vital part of ! Get it done Trent and Dashon, and maybe Dashon talk to Ronnie Lott . . . get GOOD advice, not advice from self-centered, money-hungry agents and interlopers ! we are your fans San Francisco, half way around the world !!!

    @ joninchina,THAT WAS WELL SAID.EXACTLY WHAT I WAS TALKING ABOUT. TEAM 1ST,IF GOLDSON WANTS TO GET PAID HE SHOULD ACT LIKE A PRO,SIGN HIS TENDER,REPORT,START TO WORK ON NEXT SEASON AND LET THINGS WORK THEMSELVES OUT,NOT ACT LIKE A SPOILED BRAT,”I WANT MY ALLOWANCE AND IM NOT COMING OUT OF MY ROOM UNTILL I GET IT”, YES,GOLDSON IS ONE OF THE MOST DOMINANT S’s IN THE LEAGUE,HIS PLAY HAS EARNED HIM A PAYCHECK,BUT DONT DEMAND IT,IM SURE THAT IS NOT THE KIND OF WORK ETHIC HARBAUGH WANTS AROUND HIS TEAM,C’MON GOLDSON,SIGN AND REPORT

    it might be noteworthy to menton that we havent heard ANYTHING about a new contract for goldson,his asking price might be too much right now and the” 49ers are moving on with the guys we have here in camp”. a quote from harbaugh on our local radio station about dashon goldson and his hold-out. I dont like it when guys hold out like this. they get paid a fortune to play an adult version of a kids game and when 12 million isnt enough,they want 14 million,seriously? what,10 million isnt enough? who are we,as fans,to judge how much or how less someone should be paid? yes,he is worth every penny OF WHATEVER WE PAY HIM, and to hold out,demanding more than offered,is greedy in my honest opinion,these guys make millions,and that should be enough

    and yes niners all dayyy,our front office SHOULD make goldson their top priority but not be held hostage by dashon’s agent, I think a 6 year deal paying him 8.5 million a year is plenty with a 15 million dollar signing bonus

    c’mon pre-season,cant get here fast e’nuff. I am soooo ready to start going to games and tailgating and see all my fellow hard-core 49er fans. I am so lucky to be living here in the bay area where I can see my team play.and to all you out-of-state 49er fans,you are the true faithful,supporting your team from afar,we,the faithful,no matter how near or far,shall support our team no matter what,win or lose, big time offense or big time defense matters not as long as we win. if the score be 7-3 49ers win,I love it,if the score is 38-35 49ers lose,I HATE IT,I think that is what alex meant when speaking about cam newton,,yeah stats are great but I would rather have my qb throw for 200 yrds. and 1 td and win rather than going for 400 yards and 3 td’s and lose. YOU FAR AWAY 49ER FANS, WE CAN HEAR YOU AT CANDLESTICK ON GAME DAY!!! WE ARE TOGETHER,NO MATTER WHERE WE ARE,WIN OR LOSE,49ERS FOREVER,

    lets be real football is a Multi Billion Dollar business, not a kids game anymore! Not to mention the average career is only 3.5 years, and the only sure thing in a $80 contract is the signing bonus. As much as I enjoy football on sunday its a brutal business, and a team he’s no qualms about cutting any player thats the nature of the beast.
    Lot of X-players are broken men, true nobody forces them to play the game, but they have every right too get as much as they can while the iron is hot. The owners got theres, Harbaugh got his, plus coaches money IS guaranteed!

    fanster that you ?
