    Coach Norv Turner isn't shy about letting a young player know when he does something wrong. His salty language is usually heard numerous times during a practice. But one guy not on the receiving end -- this summer -- is league MVP LaDainian Tomlinson. That wasn't the case back in 2001 when Tomlinson was a rookie and Turner was the team's offensive coordinator. "He didn't' miss a chance to tell me I wasn't in college my rookie year -- let's just say that," Tomlinson said. "When I did the wrong things and went the wrong way or dropped the ball, he'd be, 'Hey man, this is not TCU anymore.'"

    --Turner was saddened by the recent passing of coaching legend Bill Walsh. "The last year-and-a-half being in San Francisco was fun for me because I got to spend a little time with Bill and talked football with him," said Turner, who was on the 49ers' coaching staff last year. "He was really interested in (49ers quarterback) Alex Smith."

    -- Right guard Mike Goff clipped his hair, which went well beyond his shoulders during the offseason. He donated his hair to Locks of Love, an organization which makes hair prosthetics for children 18-and-younger who have lost their hair for medical reasons. "I just did it because I thought it was a good cause," Goff said.
