it was another quiet day in 49ers land, despite the

Good morning folks 49ers Mike Person Jersey , All-Star nature of this weekend’s Senior Bowl and Pro Bowl activities. Although the Pro Bowl, Sunday’s distraction from the NFL bye week, has all the trappings of a game, the reality is simply that it isn’t. What it is useful for, however , is inflating the worth of a player in his agents’ eyes when contract time comes around!The Senior Bowl isn’t much more of a game, although it could be argued that it may be slightly more competitive, due to the impact it could conceivably have on the draft stock of the prospects involved. Although not all of the prospects are considered NFL caliber players, many of the cornerbacks involved this year had the type of length coveted by the 49ers - six of the ten rostered CBs were over 6 feet tall. The 49ers have invested in the CB position fairly heavily over the Shanahan-Lynch regime’s time in power, but it’ll be interesting to see if the extended look at any of these seniors may increases their chances at a shot with the 49ers.Finally, the team replaced the spot left vacant after Rich Scangarello moved on to Denver to serve as the new offensive coordinator under head coach Vic Fangio. His work with Jimmy Garoppolo to close out the 2017 season following the mid-season trade was admirable 49ers Richard Sherman Jersey , and his work molding Nick Mullens from practice squad player to NFL starter surely opened some eyes. The team hired Shane Day, a coach with over a decade of NFL experience, although only two were in a QB coach capacity. Considering his relative lack of experience, as well as Kyle Shanahan’s direct involvement with the QBs, it would not be surprising to see him in something of a reduced-responsibility capacity as he learns on the job.2019 Senior Bowl: many CBs fit the 49ers’ prototype | Maiocco, NBC Sports Bay Area49ers to hire Shane Day as QB coach | Maiocco Cheap Dante Pettis Jersey , NBC Sports Bay Area | Williams, PFT | Panacy, 49ers WebzoneElijah Lee not fined, LeGarrette Blount fined $10,026 for unnecessary roughness One of the lesser storylines coming out of the San Francisco 49ers win over the Detroit Lions was Lions running back LeGarrette Blount’s antics in the fourth quarter. On second down, quarterback Matthew Stafford scrambled out of the pocket and took off down the sideline. 49ers linebacker Elijah Lee met Stafford and knocked him out of bounds and onto his back. Assuming it was a late hit 49ers Alfred Morris Jersey , Bount then clocked Lee from the sidelines resulting in a penalty. After it’s all said and done, Blount was fined $10,026 for the incident, Lee got nothing. There was some question on if Lee would get fined for the hit on Stafford, but the hit was legal. Stafford was inbounds and a runner, making him fair game for defenses to attack. The Blount hit , however was not, as it was after the play was blown dead. Despite what the announcing crew may have said to the contrary, the officials got this right. This isn’t the first time Blount has been involved in an issue. Many may remember the infamous “Duck and Cover” incident from his college days at Oregon where Blount decked an opposing player for Boise State after a 19-8 loss. The incident derailed Blount’s college career. In any case, this is one of those few situations where the NFL got it right.
