I have been a Bay Area sports fan since I was a very young kid. My favorite professional teams are the 49ers, SF Giants, Warriors and SJ Sharks. I am also a Cal alum and a big fan of Cal athletics. I coach basketball at the high school level, which I find very rewarding. Writing for Bleacher Report gives me a great outlet to voice my thoughts and opinions on the teams and sports I enjoy.

    Dan, I said we'd check back in after May/June and see if Mr Belt had turned things around. He had started to do so and then the broken thumb incident occurred. He had come out of the funk as has Sandoval. Quoting Baggs: "If the Giants had lost Sunday, all the talk would be about Posey, their de facto captain and franchise star, and what’s the matter with him."
    Matter of time before Posey turns it around. I know you thought Belt looked hopelessly lost. The same could have been said about 2-strike Pablo until a week ago. I think Belt is a budding star, who will still have his ups and downs for another season or two.

    Hey what do you think about the niners drafting WR Davante Adams from Fresno State even if guy's like cooks, beckham jr, benjamin, Lee Etc... are still there at 30. Ive been looking into this guy a lot lately and he is really impressive. He's got size at 6'2 215 and good speed. What are your thoughts on him? Thanks

    you missed the most important thing 49ers need to improve on in 20141_-COACHING!! It's Romans mediocre offense that hold us back; and QB coach does not appear to be helping Kap improve. Game time adjustments (or lack thereof) need to be addressed

    Despite your column yesterday I believe Gary Brown is actually white and not Asian. You may want to put up a photo of him instead the player who appears to be Kensuke Tanaka.

    You're welcome, Dan. I enjoy reading your work.

    To add a hyperlink you can highlight the part you want the link to be on. Keep it highlighted and go to the editing tools. That's where you can change the type of font to bold, italic, etc. There's a button for adding hyperlinks. If you hover over it with your mouse, "insert/edit link" will appear. The picture on the button looks like an "eight" with hard edges (or, in my mind, a funny-looking paperclip).

    A box should pop up when you click on the insert/edit link button, and there are three different slots in it.

    You put the URL of your source in the top slot. In the second slot you should see the part on the text you have highlighted, which is where you'll see the hyperlink in the article after you complete the process.

    Finally, to get your source to open in a new window, select "open in new window" in the third slot before saving.

    Does this help?

    Hi Dan, just to let you know that I couldn't fix the issue on the duplicate Giants slides so Content Standards said they would notify you about it.
