Sunday’s Game With Buffalo Beyond Big

By Merrill Reese: Last week I hesitated to call The 49ers meeting a must-game.  True must-games have a mathematical implication.  You lose and you are eliminated from playoff contention. Believe me, Sunday’s game in Buffalo […]

BLOG: Subpar Won’t Do It With Rekindled 49ers

BLOG: Some Replay Better Than No Replay

By Merrill Reese: There’s been a lot of conversation this week about the video replay. Andy Reid’s assistant coaches never had a chance to see the replay that would have shown them that a Falcons […]


BLOG: Let The Westbrook Comparisons Begin

By Merrill Reese: With all of the focus on Michael Vick and the receivers the guy who really deserves a great big spotlight is Shady McCoy. Comparing him with Brian Westbrook is no longer premature. […]
