Niners Roundup: Musical Edition?

  • Say Hey favorite Patrick Willis performed a James Brown impression, presumably at the behest of his veteran teammates. [The FanHouse]
  • Willis isn’t the only young linebacker looking to have a breakout campaign. Meet second-year pro Manny Lawson. [SFGate]
  • Bryant Young has learned to play the bass guitar. That is all. [SFGate]
  • Everything you ever wanted to know about Justin Smiley and the 49ers’ offensive line, by the always-excellent Matt Maiocco. [Instant 49ers]
  • Would you rather the Niners be a perennial favorite, a sexy pick, a Cinderella team or none of the above, the Arizona Cardinals? [Niners Nation]
  • The FanHouse’s 49ers preview thinks Nolan’s boys will indeed take the leap this year, compete for the division title, but end up with a wild card. Also, there is gratuitous video. Gratuity is fun, except when it’s not for you. [The FanHouse]
  • According to Will Carroll, Sports Illustrated‘s injury expert, Frank Gore’s broken hand will be a “non-issue.” [SI, last item]
  • Vernon Davis just might be the next great tight end … in fantasy football. [ESPN Insider]

Around the rest of the NFL:

  • Michael Vick’s plea: could get five years. [The FanHouse]
  • By the way, the San Diego Chargers have a pretty good front office. Remember when they passed on Vick and took some guy named LaDainian? [Epic Carnival]
  • Virginia Tech isn’t going to rename Michael Vick Hall, despite the saturation of brand-name lozenges. [Deadspin]
  • Warren Sapp: ever the entertainer. [Larry Brown Sports, via 100%]
  • That Jason Campbell hit, broken down. Frame. By. Frame. [Post Game Heroes]
  • Tom Brady is now a baby-daddy! [KSK]
  • This is college football, not NFL, but … ow. [With Leather]
