Asked about the potential for a takeover by Cowboys fans on Sunday when the Niners host "Dwight Clark Day," 49ers CEO Jed York said he hopes that isn't the case. "I think every team has tickets on the secondary market," York said. "I'd love for our fans to be the ones that are buying those as opposed to the opposing team. I would just encourage (fans to) don't do it for me, do it for Dwight. Dwight deserves to see a lot of red and gold on Sunday. I think he'll see that. I think he's going to see a lot of passion from the 49ers faithful."

49ers CEO Jed York spoke to media for a bit today after attending owners meetings in New York earlier this week. Asked directly if he believes QB Colin Kaepernick has been treated fairly by the league since he opted out of his contract with San Francisco earlier this year, York said he didn't want to go into detail or give a strong opinion on the topic but did say this: "I don't believe that there's a base to that claim that he's being black balled," York said.

49ers S Eric Reid said he met up with QB Colin Kaepernick on Monday night in New York. Reid said he and Kaepernick discussed some issues for Reid to take into the meeting with owners on Tuesday and that Kaepernick did not attend those meetings because he was not invited by the NFL. As for Kaepernick's pending collusion suit and what it could mean for his future in the league, Reid said Kaepernick is in "good spirits." Reid added that Kaepernick has been working out and looks good.

Asked how rookie C.J. Beathard's performance over the final 10 games will influence the 49ers' plans for the future at quarterback, coach Kyle Shanahan said "a ton." Shanahan said Beathard has to show he has the ability to lead the Niners where they want to go (i.e. the Super Bowl) in order to nail down the job beyond this year.

With the Cowboys coming to town this week, it's only natural that the 49ers will honor Dwight Clark on Sunday. Clark, of course, holds a special place in Niners' lore for "The Catch" against Dallas in the 1982 NFC Championship game. Clark, who announced he had been diagnosed with ALS in March, is expected to attend and there will be halftime festivities honoring him and 35 other members of the Super Bowl XVI champions. Clark and Joe Montana are also expected to address the crowd. All fans attending will receive a Dwight Clark t-shirt.
