49ers | San Francisco receiving feat in Week 14

Mon, 13 Dec 2010 17:11:09 -0800

San Francisco 49ers RB Brian Westbrook had 87 receiving yards in Week 14 against the Seattle Seahawks, while WR Josh Morgan posted 82 yards and TE Vernon Davis chipped in with 70 receiving yards, reports Eric Branch, of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat. It is the first time three San Francisco teammates posted 70 or more receiving yards since Sept. 9, 2001, when WRs Terrell Owens, J.J. Stokes and Tai Streets accomplished the feat.

Cowboys | Owens's celebration may have been inspired by team chaplain

Thu, 13 Jul 2006 17:45:47 -0700

Jean-Jacques Taylor, of the Dallas Morning News, reports former San Francisco 49ers receivers coach George Stewart wants to set the record straight on WR Terrell Owens' celebratory dance during the 2000 season at Texas Stadium. The Dallas Cowboys wide receiver was playing for the 49ers back then. Stewart said team chaplain Earl Smith might have played a role in the celebration. The day before the game, the 49ers had just completed a walk-through practice at Texas Stadium. "The chaplain began talking about Roger Staubach and how the Cowboys were God's Team and America's Team," Stewart said. "Then he asked Terrell if he knew why there was a hole in the roof. He didn't, so the chaplain told him that it was so God could look down on the Cowboys. "He said, 'If you score, go to the star and let God see you. Look up to the sky and praise God.' "If you'll look at a replay, you'll see that he runs to the star, looks right up, praises God and then leaves the field." WR J.J. Stokes said the chaplain asked him to go to the star as well if he scored a touchdown. The next day, the 49ers suspended Owens for a week. That essentially ended his relationship with head coach Steve Mariucci because he thought the coach should have supported him.

NFL | Stokes still thinks he can play

Sun, 25 Jun 2006 10:49:55 -0700

Mitch McLaughlin, of the Daily Democrat, reports free agent WR J.J. Stokes (Patriots) still believes he has the skills to play in the NFL. Stokes added, "I still think I have the skills to play. I miss being out there, being in on the action." His last tryout came with the Buffalo Bills last offseason, but his required minimum salary of $750,000 makes him an unattractive option when a team could sign a younger, cheaper wide receiver. Stokes has not officially retired, as he is working out so that he is prepared if another NFL team needs his services.

Dan Pires, of the New Bedford Standard-Times, reports even with the signing of WR J.J.

Ward was with the Patriots during training camp and has history with Belichick and offensive coordinator Charlie Weis going back to their days together with the New York Jets.

The Florida Times-Union reports the Jacksonville Jaguars kept WR Jimmy Smith out of team drills and was used sparingly throughout practice Sunday, July 27.

Stokes and Donald Hayes, who are the top candidates for the No. 2 receiving position.
