It's a fast track at Candlestick Park on Sunday, as some of the players are on the field a couple hours before kickoff getting some extra work.
Jim Harbaugh said he learned a lot about his team in the 49ers' Week 1 win over Seattle. Matt Maiocco suggests we will really learn what Harbaugh thinks, based on the offensive gameplan he unleashes.
Coach Jim Harbaugh said both receiver Michael Crabtree and safety Dashon Goldson will be game-time decisions.
Here's the transcript from 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh's Friday press briefing courtesy of the 49ers' public-relations department:
The NFL fined 49ers outside linebacker Ahmad Brooks 7,500 for roughing the passer, a league spokesman told CSNBayArea.com on Friday.
Receivers Michael Crabtree and Dez Bryant will probably both be "game-time decisions" for the 49ers and Dallas Cowboys on Sunday.
When the 49ers selected Aldon Smith with the No. 7 overall pick, there were some comparisons made to Dallas Cowboys' pass-rusher DeMarcus Ware. Those comparisons appeared highly fitting this week.
Jim Harbaugh: 'To see him Alex Smith respond that way and do things that move the chains, get you closer to first downs, put you in more manageable situations, as far as the down and distance is concerned, is something that's a real positive for our ball club."
Receiver Michael Crabtree and safety Dashon Goldson both were limited in 49ers' practice on Sunday, according to the team's official report to the league.
Receiver Michael Crabtree foot and safety Dashon Goldson knee were in full pads Wednesday on the 49ers' practice field but neither was active during warmup drills.
Matt Maiocco caught up with center Jonathan Goodwin, who described the 49ers' offensive gameplan vs. Seattle and provided an advanced scouting report on the Cowboys' talented front seven.
Do the 49ers need a veteran backup quarterback behind Alex Smith? Coach Jim Harbaugh has declined comment on whether 49ers have any interest in free-agent David Garrard, whom the Jacksonville Jaguars released last week.
Tony Romo on the 49ers: 'They play hard. It jumps off the tape that they're an aggressive team that goes to the whistle.'
Defense and special teams stood out in the 49ers' win over Seattle. But what happened to the run game? Matt Maiocco pores over each player's role on offense in San Francisco's Opening Day triumph.
