• After Seahawks cornerback Richard Shermans performance and interviews last Sunday, wont it be fun to watch him get burned by the Broncos Peyton Manning in the Super Bowl?
• Quarterback Colin Kaepernick has taken some heat for that interception in the 49ers loss to the Seahawks, but have these folks forgotten that he nearly single-handedly kept them in the game?
• Critics contend that Kaepernick forced that pass into tight coverage, but shouldnt we take into consideration that hes started just 29 NFL games?
• Joe Montana went 18-11 in his first 29 starts for the 49ers (yes, that includes a Super Bowl victory), so doesnt that make Kaepernicks 22-7 record as a starter darn impressive?
• With all their free agents, can the 49ers afford running back Frank Gores expected $6.45 million salary next season?
• When the NFL resorts to having Jerry Rice and Deion Sanders select the teams, isnt it time to do away with the Pro Bowl?
• No players from the Super Bowl teams participate and eight of nine 49ers selected wont, either, so is the Pro Bowl really an all-star event?
• Speaking of all-star games, how can the NBA justify it if Kings center DeMarcus Cousins is left off the roster for next months game?
• While we applaud the Kings embracing technology Bitcoin and Google Glass, OMG! doesnt winning games create the best fan experience?
• The affiliation with two MLS teams is a big deal for Republic FC, but does it really improve the odds that Sacramento will land an MLS franchise?
