SANTA CLARA -- How is it possible Jim Harbaugh, after coaching the 49ers to the NFC Championship game in his first three seasons, could be out after his fourth season?


Programming note: 49ers Insider Matt Maiocco will join Jim Kozimor tonight on Yahoo SportsTalk Live at 5 & 11 p.m. 


Colin Kaepernick was already plenty popular among the 49ers fan base. And, now, his altruistic contract might earn him even more affection.


If the 49ers and guard Alex Boone do not reach a contract extension, history suggests he might be prepared for a long holdout that could even carry over into the regular season.
