Jim Harbaugh said he doesn't want to insert himself into the investigation of Ray McDonald and declined to comment when asked whether he and the 49ers think McDonald will be cleared of wrong-doing in the case. A report by the NFL Network on Sunday said that the 49ers believe McDonald's version of what happened at his house Aug. 31 that led to his arrest on suspicion of domestic abuse.
Jim Harbaugh is going to really have to work his magic this season. Every speckle of miracle dust.
Jim Harbaugh wants the NFL to inform him what "inappropriate language" Colin Kaepernick was accused of using by referee Carl Cheffers, which resulted in an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty after a fourth-quarter interception. Kaepernick claimed after Sunday's game he "didn't say anything," though video shows his head motioning toward Bears defensive end Lamarr Houston.
49ers wide receiver Michael Crabtree misses a ball as Danny McCray tries for it as well and misses for an incomplete pass in the fourth quarter. Brandon Marshall didn't burn the 49ers up and down the field but they had no answer for him in the red zone.
Domestic violence has dominated professional football's story lines for weeks, and this weekend saw three star players miss their games because of issues at home. A black cloud hangs over a fourth player as California's lieutenant governor requested that the San Francisco 49ers bench a defensive end as his domestic violence case navigates the court system.
The San Francisco 49ers shot themselves in the foot repeatedly on Sunday night, resulting in a 28-20 loss to the Chicago Bears . Colin Kaepernick 's four turnovers are, of course, important, but they'll be broken down and dissected a thousand times before the next game is played.

Cutler passed for three fourth-quarter touchdowns after much of Chicago's starting defense went down, and the Bears beat the San Francisco 49ers 28-20 Sunday night to spoil their Levi's Stadium debut.

Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, the former San Francisco mayor, on Sunday called for the 49ers to bench defensive lineman Ray McDonald, "pending the outcome of his felony domestic violence investigation by San Jose law enforcement." Newsom and his wife, Jennifer Siebel Newsom, released a prepared statement hours before the 49ers played their Levi's Stadium opener against the Chicago Bears.
The Bears will look to rebound from their season-opening loss to the Bills and end a long losing streak in San Francisco when they battle the 49ers Sunday night at Levi's Stadium. The Bears will look to rebound from their season-opening loss to the Bills and end a long losing streak in San Francisco when they battle the 49ers Sunday night at Levi's Stadium.
The 49ers get another favorable fantasy football match up in week 2. The Chicago Bears defense will be a tougher challenge, but is in no way intimidating. The question is will this be a shootout or can Kaepernick and company grind out another lopsided win? It was more of the same for the 49er fantasy stars last week in Dallas.
So, last week's game didn't exactly turn out so well. The Bears fired out of the gate, but couldn't get out of their own way in coughing the ball up to the Bills three times.
