The 49ers just moved to No. in the AP Pro32 poll, with the Seahawks not all that far behind at No. The Niners will counter with Jimmy Garoppolo and a very stingy defense.

Tevin Coleman scored on a 48-yard run to become the first San Francisco 49ers player since Jerry Rice 24 years ago to score three TDs in the first half. Coleman's long run late in the second quarter followed a 19-yard run in the first quarter and a 10-yard catch early in the second quarter to help San Francisco break out to a 27-3 halftime lead against Carolina. Coleman is the first 49ers player with three TDs in the first half since the Hall of Famer Rice did it against Minnesota on Dec. 18, 1995.

Wes Welker was busy coaching the San Francisco 49ers' wide receivers Monday night. During his weekly interview with Jim Gray on Monday night before Niners-Cleveland Browns, Patriots quarterback Tom Brady randomly re-opened an old wound from Super Bowl XLVI, referencing the time his wife, Gisele Bundchen, took an indirect shot at Welker after his crucial drop late in New England's eventual 21-17 loss to the New York Giants. Here's the context: Gray asked Brady, who passed Brett Favre into third place on the NFL's all-time passing yards list Sunday, what it means for him to reach so many individual milestones.

Tight ends are dominating my trade targets column for Week 5, as injuries continue to mount, and the landscape of the position remains as barren as ever. There is a rare opportunity to buy elite tight ends in this kind of market, but fantasy football is just like the stock market. Despite two down weeks, Evan Engram remains the TE2 on the fantasy football season through the first quarter of the season.

A large portion of the 49ers fan base, including Jerry Rice, might have wanted Antonio Brown. The 49ers' decision-makers, however, did not even make any attempt to acquire Brown in the offseason. Months later, there is nobody with the 49ers who might be regretting that decision.

The 49ers on Saturday signed former New York Giants defensive lineman Jay Bromley and placed Kapron Lewis-Moore on injured reserve.

Beckham eventually was traded to the Cleveland Browns and the 49ers never got an opportunity to top Cleveland's offer, something many believe they would have done, according to ESPN. In an in-depth look at the Beckham trade by ESPN's Pat McManamon and Jordan Raanan, it was revealed that rumors about a potential trade to San Francisco forced the Browns to make a play for Beckham, and the 49ers likely would have made a better proposal had they been given the chance.

The San Francisco 49ers signed defensive lineman Damontre Moore to a one-year deal on Friday, three days after the Alliance of American Football folded. Moore had seven sacks while starring for the AAF's San Diego Fleet, and that has earned him a shot at reviving his NFL career. Moore, 26, has 10 career sacks in 54 games over parts of six NFL seasons.
