EMPIRE ROW TAILGATE - Experience a taste of Candlestick at Levi's!
In this edition of the Ronbo sports weekly Brian Hoyer will indeed be going deep to Marquise Goodwin, Aldrick Robinson, as well as Pierre Garcon this season. Hoyer so far in this offseason has displayed solid leadership as well as adding direction in Kyle Shanahan’s complicated offensive system. Continue reading
Carlos Hyde is feeling pressure from Joe Williams, Matt Breida, Kapri Bibbs, and Tim Hightower that he admitted he was experiencing! In a recent interview Hyde was quoted saying “any one of those guys could start.” He followed that up with “I want to start” The running back corp is the hottest in camp no doubt about it.
