Morning Tailgate: Aug. 9

Posted by Taylor Price on August 9, 2012 – 10:30 AM

The 49ers are one day away from kicking off the 2012 preseason, and it appears as though first-round draft pick A.J. Jenkins is putting together some of his best practices leading up to Friday night’s matchup against the Minnesota Vikings.

According to CSNBayArea.com’s Matt Maiocco, the No. 30 overall pick had the best day of any 49ers receiver in training camp on Tuesday. Jenkins caught six passes in team and 7-on-7 drills, and told Maiocco he still found areas he can improve on following his solid day of practice.

Jenkins’ steady improvements won’t be seen today. The 49ers will have a “Mock Game” this afternoon without media in attendance. After, coach Jim Harbaugh and quarterback Alex Smith will speak with the reporters.

More 49ers headlines can be found after the jump.

Maiocco shares his practice recap on a run-heavy day at 49ers camp.

Maiocco also shares the details of the team’s new presentation of this year’s season tickets.

49ers running back Rock Cartwright talked about his training camp mindset in a recent appearance on CSN’s Chronicle Live.

Cam Inman of The San Jose Mercury News takes a look at the budding rivalry between the left and ride of the 49ers defensive front.

49ers.com’s #Camp49 coverage included a practice report, a story on Aldon Smith setting a sack goal for 2012 and a video on the defensive front seven’s growing competitiveness.

    I’m as excited as anyone, But I never get too excited about preseason. Don’t beat me up too bad guys but I look at it as a (considering we are playing other teams) glorified practice scrimmage. It’s basically to help the players get their timing down and a better feel for the game after a season off. More for the coaches really to see what they’ve got and any adjustments to the starting line-up, and of course back ups they want to get a good look at before the big one wth Green Bay. In fact, they use very little scripted plays from their official game plan. I guess what I’m saying is whether they look great or bad I’m not expecting too much at this time, but quite frankly, great would be preferable…GO NINERS!

    Its just preseason all you really want to see is the team on both sides of the ball play hard and when given a chance make plays especially the young guys that are trying to make the team or practice squad. Remember they did struggle in the preseason last year and look how that turned out just a couple of plays away from the Big Game.

    im in no way knocking ya 9er 9er,the one’s will be out right away but this is the time for the bubble guys to make an impression so its not quite a glorified secrimmage,well, for me at least its not,close,but to the guys who know they have none chance of making the team,its a “for real” game. its great watching if your interested in the back-up guys and special teamers, you will see some inspired play from the 49ers back-ups and URFA’s,,,im looking forward to watching chris owusu return some punts or kicks in fridays 4th quarter,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,TICK,TOCK,,,TICK,TOCK,,,,TICK,TOCK

    I know that pre-season games are used for coaches to evaluate the new-bees, and to settle in the experienced guys…..but I always feel sorry for those guys who just miss out on being selected for the team. They put their heart and soul into it, and then they get cut. Breaks my heart (but then….I’m a Mama).

    Since our A-list team wont be playing all the time in the pre-season….expect some hiccups and mistakes….and perhaps even a loss or two. But keep the faith, and repeat after me….”Go Niners”….

    Pre-season: Where you watch rookies and one-year free agents make a good play here or there, only to get cut because they didn’t quite do enough to prove themselves. It’s a harbinger of the pre-season for fans, and the toughest moment for players who gave their best in training camp but couldn’t do enough.

    yes u wont see the regular season during preseason, but it is very exciting, to see the batlles for the roster this year imean the play during the games will decide which running backs we keep and how many and quarterbacks we have 4 well pick 3 and recievers and all positions really wish we could keep them all but we cant so these games decide who makes our team

    It seems that Coach, and Harbaugh-Speak, is in mid season form

    Q: Do you put more emphasis, more evaluation, on these games? Or is it just an equal part of the puzzle as a normal three-hour padded practice out there?

    HS: “It’s a game. The score board’s lit up. We put a lot of value on everything we do. But, definitely the games are heightened, fun, competitive, and it’s highest output for a football player… But you didn’t need me to say that. Did you? Did you really need me to tell you that?

    Come on, naysayers! Preseason football is extremely important. EXtremely important! Not necessarily as well executed, nor always as exciting but crucial for narrowing it down to that 53-man roster to win a super bowl with. Also a 4year window? Dude we have layers and layers of youth all over the place. Don’t short change us, we’re set up to be elite for a long time. That being said, number 6 comes in February. Bank on it!
