08:03 AM ET 06.23 | Niners' offensive players plan to reconvene within the next few weeks for another minicamp. Like the sessions that were held June 6-9, next week's practices will be led by quarterback Alex Smith, a free agent who is expected to re-sign with the team when the lockout is lifted. Smith noted that even if a deal is reached in principle between owners and players, it may still take several weeks to iron out the details that will officially end the lockout and allow players to meet -- and practice -- with their coaches. Smith began installing the base offense earlier this month. One difference from the earlier camp may be the involvement of defensive players.

The "base offense" is 3-and-out, right? How hard can that be?

I can't even read the article without looking at his teeth. Where's my floss? Did you all brush this morning? What the bloody hell?

Do they want the first pick in next year's draft?

Nah, not unless it's a Water Pick for Jimmy's teeth.

He's having a more productive career as a coach than a player, so far.

Good observation... and as a 49er fan, probably not the one you are looking for.

so...does this answer crabtree's question?

June 23, 2011  11:32 AM ET

When will they learn that the Mister Ed Thread never even makes it past page 1?

I thought it was "run for negative yardage on first down, throw a pick on second down." I must be confused.

No. He shuold go right to the source and ask the horse.

No, that's more advanced. To make that work, the O-line has to hold up long enough for Gumby to get a pass off.

Well, Alex Smith is positioning himself for a coaching position if this QB thing doesn't work out.

And in other news... There's a toothless horse running wild in the Bay area... Witnesses say it was last seen by Monster Park.

The 49ers offence look great... until some guys in different colored jerseys showed up.

June 23, 2011  03:03 PM ET

Harbough, do the names Nolan and Singletary ring a bell? They went to dinner with Smith and got puked on....

February 2, 2014, New Jersey, call him what you want, but on that day you'll be calling him the Super Bowl winning coach. Take it to the bank!
