  1. Jim Harbaugh suggests he should get a “medal” for lasting four years with 49ers Posted by Mike Florio on February 23, 2017, 4:45 PM EST Jim Harbaugh never has lasted longer than four years at any of his various coaching stops. For making it last that long in San Francisco, he believes he deserves special recognition. In an appearance on Tim Kawakami’s podcast, via CSN Bay Area, Harbaugh pointed out that he “set a record for coaching there under the present ownership.” “I take pride in that,” Harbaugh said. “Maybe there should be an endurance medal, a courage medal, for that.” The issue came up because new coach Kyle Shanahan mentioned Harbaugh, Bill Walsh, George Seifert, and Steve Mariucci in Shanahan’s introductory press conference. Harbaugh said he doesn’t believe he spent enough time with the team to be compared to those other coaches. Harbaugh perhaps would have made it more than four years if he had been working with new G.M. John Lynch. “I would’ve loved to have worked for John Lynch,” Harbaugh said. “He reminds me a lot of the athletic director we have here [at Michigan], Warde Manuel, who’s also a former player and a teammate of mine. Common-sense guys who are team guys, just the way they go about their business always speaks volumes.” Harbaugh and former 49ers G.M. Trent Baalke didn’t see eye to eye, and that fractured relationship contributed in large part to the “mutual parting” with Harbaugh that came after the 2014 season. The 49ers have hired three coaches in only two full seasons since then.
  2. l 49ers sign ex-Dolphins DT Earl Mitchell One year after they signed only one starter during free agency, the 49ers have matched that total two weeks before the start of the new league year. In the first significant signing of general manager John Lynch’s tenure, the 49ers agreed to terms Friday with former Dolphins defensive tackle Earl Mitchell. The four-year, $16 million deal will include $5.5 million in 2017, a source said. Mitchell, 29, was released by Miami last week in a cost-cutting move. He had been scheduled to earn a $2.975 million base salary with the Dolphins. In 2016, the 49ers lone free-agent signings were starting guard Zane Beadles and third-string quarterback Thad Lewis. The 49ers were attracted by Mitchell’s relentless effort and high character. And they’re presumably intrigued by his potential to plug some of the leaks in their wretched run defense. Last year, the 49ers set an NFL record by allowing 100-yard rushers in seven straight games and surrendered the sixth-most rushing yards (2,654) since 1990.Mitchell, 6-foot-3 and 310 pounds, is known for his run-stuffing ability and has 5.5 sacks in a seven-season, 38-start career spent with Houston (2010-13) and Miami (2014-16). Last year, Mitchell suffered a calf injury, but the Dolphins activated him from injured reserve to play in their final nine games. Niners defensive line coach Jeff Zgonina was a defensive assistant with the Texans when Mitchell was there in 2013. The 49ers’ poor run defense last year did get a boost as nose tackle Glenn Dorsey gradually returned to form after suffering a torn anterior cruciate ligament in November 2015. However, Dorsey, 31, is scheduled to become a free agent. He has missed 38 of 80 games since 2012 because of injuries. In another signing Friday, the 49ers agreed to a two-year deal with wide receiver DeAndre Carter, a San Jose native who had a school-record 99 receptions at Sacramento State in 2014. Carter, 23, is an undrafted free agent who spent time on the practice squads of the Raiders and Patriots in 2015. He was not in the NFL last year after New England waived him as part of its final roster cuts. Carter, 5-foot-8 and 190 pounds, was a first-team FCS All-American after a senior season that included 1,321 yards and 17 touchdowns. He finished his college career with 207 catches, 2,760 yards and 35 scores.
  3. Upland Persimmon sour...amazing Cage Brewing Mango Bob's IPA...delicious Cage Brewing Ro Sham Bo IPA...Tasty as hell Funky Buddha Last Snow...incredible Just scored a couple bombers of Toppling Goliath Mosaic Dry hopped Pseudo Sue..saving them for tomorrow and Sunday...I've had enough tonight.
  4. Tough break for Sheldon, but he should have either did a trial fish or realized why Brook and Shire were both wrapping theirs...I'm surprised he didn't notice that Brook tested a filet before deciding to wrap. I agree with Tom that Sheldon will take his place amongst the great chefs. Best final 3 ever on Top Chef, no matter who went home it was gonna suck for the viewers.
  5. Red Cypress, Hourglass and Crooked Can are probably the best of the bunch. Orlando is no Tampa Bay when it comes to breweries.
  6. Columbus brewing co. That's all you need. This one might be worth a look too
  7. Civil Society Pulp. Crowler hour.
  8. Sorry man. Orlando is the one city in FL I'd pay to never have to go to. It's turrible.
  9. And the theme of First Timers just keeps rolling. The San Francisco 49ers were reportedly considering two candidates for their special teams coordinator vacancy. The first was Chicago Bears assistant special teams coach Richard Hightower, who was reportedly their top candidate, and the second was Atlanta Falcons assistant special teams coach Eric Sutulovich. According to Adam Caplan of ESPN, Hightower will get the job. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and Hightower were teammates at the University of Texas and then served on the same staffs with the Houston Texans (2006-08), Washington Redskins (2010-13), and Cleveland Browns (2014). While Hightower has never been a coordinator, he has been a member of the 49ers coaching staff before. He served as the team's assistant special teams coach in 2015. During that season with the 49ers, Hightower helped the punt coverage unit rank eighth in the NFL allowing just 6.4 yards per return, while working with rookie punter Bradley Pinion. Kicker Phil Dawson was 10th in the NFL with an 88.9 field goal percentage, which tied for the fourth-highest percentage of his 17-year career. Hightower joined the Chicago staff in January of 2016.
  10. Here ya go folks. A 15 minute Skype interview with Kirsten a local radio station in Tampa posted this morning. "Kirstin joins us live via skype from her apartment to discuss her appearances on the game show and the sensational internet reaction to her girl-next-door hotness that has nerds across the globe professing their love all over the inter-webs!" edit: Shes full screen at 2:50 in
