NFC West at the combine: 49ers GM says he wants Gore back; Cardinals bring back WR Larry Fitzgerald

San Francisco general manager Trent Baalke just spoke at a podium here in the stadium lobby at the scouting combine in Indianapolis. Two things he said of note to the NFC West and the Seahawks in particular.

*He praised quarterback Colin Kaepernick for how diligently and hard he is working this winter in Arizona with former NFL MVP Kurt Warner on the mechanics of the position such as footwork, arm angles of different passes plus throwing with more balance and versatility in the pocket. The 49ers GM used the word “dedicated” to describe Kaepernick’s work this offseason.

*Baalke said he

Roger Goodell, Marshawn Lynch after the Super Bowl–and how we in the media view Lynch and the NFL

Going through my phone photos to clear some memory space, I almost deleted this one before recognizing what it was: The biggest blow by of Super Bowl 49.

I was trying to talk to Lynch as the star running back walked out of the Seahawks’ locker room before the media was allowed into it. It was minutes after Seattle decided to not run Lynch from the 1-yard line on second down with 25 seconds left and the Seahawks trailing the Patriots 28-24 in the Super Bowl. Russell Wilson threw the ball instead — to New England’s Malcolm Butler for the

Seahawks have backup-quarterback issue to settle in this short week before Thursday’s final exhibition at Oakland

The Seahawks get a second consecutive day off from practicing today. They will be back on the field at the Virginia Mason Athletic Center on Monday. There are three days of workouts in Renton this week before the team flies to Oakland for the fourth and final exhibition game.

I wouldn’t be surprised if Russell Wilson doesn’t play a down on Thursday, so that coach Pete Carroll and offensive coordinator Darrell Bevell can split the entire game between Tarvaris Jackson and Terrelle Pryor. The Raiders came will a final determinant on who should be the primary backup quarterback, and on whether Seattle

Seahawks restocking to fuller health at LB; NFC West rival loses its best stopper

Might be hard to believe — or it might seem to you like it will never get here — but there are just two weeks and two days until the Seahawks and Packers get the NFL’s real season started at CenturyLink Field.

That’s what makes the return to health of Seattle’s linebacking unit timely. The Seahawks’ deepest position had been thin all summer, but Monday Super Bowl MVP Malcolm Smith returned to the practice field for the first time since ankle surgery in May. Bobby Wagner and Bruce Irvin may be back next week. And as I wrote in
