Time's up for Mike Nolan and the San Francisco 49ers. No more private workouts or tape reviews. No more splitting hairs or quarterbacks. What started three months ago as an exercise in rehabilitation for the 49ers reaches critical mass today when Nolan, the team's new coach and decision maker, reveals a draft strategy with the No. 1 pick that could be debated for years to come. Alex Smith, Aaron Rodgers or punt? The decision will set in motion the reclamation job Nolan has begun in San Francisco as well as the 70th NFL draft in New York.

Alex Smith has revealed the name of and the executive chef for his Japanese restaurant at the Four Seasons Baltimore Hotel. The new restaurant's name is Azumi, and the executive chef is Eiji Takase.  Smith said that master sake sommelier Tiffany Dawn Soto will be assisting Azumi with its sake list and beverage program. Soto was the beverage director at Pabu, the original Japanese restaurant at the Four Seasons Baltimore. Developed for the hotel by the San Francisco-based Mina Group, Pabu, along with the coffee shop Lamill, closed in June.  Both spaces are being re-developed and will be operated by Smith's Baltimore-based Atlas Restaurant Group, which currently operates the Harbor East restaurant Ouzo Bay. Azumi is set to open in November.

Kaepernick, McElroy Sam Farmer Los Angeles Times Colin Kaepernick and Greg McElroy should be the starters. It's not as if 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh can keep flipping back and forth between Kaepernick and Alex Smith and expect those psyches to stay intact. In the eight quarters before Smith's concussion, he had completed 32 of 35 for five touchdowns with no interceptions. Now that he has been benched, a major blow to his ego, Smith might not be the same quarterback coming back.

The San Francisco 49ers agreed to a trade that would send backup quarterback Shaun Hill (Maryland) to the Detroit Lions for a 2011 draft pick. The move cleared room for the 49ers to sign free-agent quarterback David Carr . Although Hill was 10-6 in games he started for the 49ers, he was replaced by former No. 1 overall draft pick Alex Smith in the second half of a Week 7 loss to the Houston Texans and never regained his starting job.

Good morning --Alex Smith-- For your first NFL start, when you're not ducking Dwight Freeney, watch how that Manning guy plays quarterback. QUESTION OF THE DAY Should the Ravens start Jamal Lewis or Chester Taylor at running back? Start Taylor. The other poor baby can't play properly because he doesn't have a new contract! Trade Lewis while we can get something for him! Jim Yealy Taneytown Jamal is the No. 52 on offense. His presence alone brings eight men in the box and creates favorable outside matchups.

Pabu is shutting down this weekend, but a new Japanese restaurant will be taking its place, according to operators. The small-plate format will be gone, replaced by a more traditional fine-dining concept. "Our number one priority is taking care of our locals," said Alex Smith, whose Atlas Restaurant Group is taking over the spaces currently operating as Pabu and Lamill in The Four Seasons Hotel Baltimore. "[Pabu] never did a great job of attracting the local crowd," he said. Smith, who owns Ouzo Bay, an upscale Greek restaurant in Harbor East, said that several Ouzo Bay customers who had seen news coverage of the Pabu closing told him they had never heard of Pabu.

There is a saying in lacrosse that to enjoy postseason success, a team has to be strong up the middle. Kip Turner is familiar with that mantra about solid play from the goalkeeper and faceoff specialist, but the Chesapeake Bayhawks goalie said he is not carrying any additional pressure as the team prepares for Saturday's start of the Major League Lacrosse playoffs. "I think the only pressure that I have is from myself, to keep doing what I've been doing all season and to make the saves that I need to make," said Turner, a Severn graduate.

Although he tried his best not to be, Colin Kaepernick is back to being human, and playing that way - complete with the natural mixture of heroics and miscues you'd expect from a quarterback with just nine career starts. While Kaepernick entered Super Bowl XLVII with few blemishes on his postseason passer rating, the latest young NFL superstar exited the Mercedes-Benz Superdome after a mostly forgettable first half and an amazing second half, where he was a 5-yard touchdown pass away from joining Hall of Famers Joe Montana and Steve Young as 49ers quarterbacks to bring a world championship to the franchise.

Week 1 (Sept. 9) at Lambeau Field: San Francisco 49ers 30, Green Bay Packers 22 The 49ers quickly quelled any doubt their success in the 2011 season was a fluke, defeating the Packers on the road. San Francisco took an early 23-7 lead on two touchdown passes from quarterback Alex Smith and three field goals from David Akers. Smith completed 20 of 26 passes for 211 yards and two touchdowns, and running back Frank Gore shouldered the rest of the offensive load with 112 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries.

Every week, I hope to bring you a quick Q&A with someone who covers the Ravens' opponent that week. This week, I chatted with Jerry McDonald, who covers the 49ers and Raiders for The Bay Area Newspaper Group. MV: How was the midseason quarterback change received at first in the 49ers locker room, and now what are teammates saying about Colin Kaepernick now that he's running and throwing all over defenses? JM: Skepticism was limited because Alex Smith missed his first game with a concussion and it was immediately evident that Kaepernick added a spark that turned a plodding offense into an explosive one. Kaepernick's physicality, work ethic and reluctance to play the star impressed his teammates.

Here is what other news outlets are saying about the Ravens, San Francisco 49ers and Super Bowl XLVII today. --- Sam Farmer of The Los Angeles Times writes that Torrey Smith's year has been filled with highs and lows . “The most impressive game of Torrey Smith's NFL career was also the most emotionally wrenching,” he wrote. “Less than 24 hours after learning his younger brother had been killed in a motorcycle accident, the Baltimore Ravens receiver braved his way through a home game against New England, catching six passes for 127 yards and two touchdowns in a 31-30 victory in Week 3. That's the kind of strength the Ravens have come to expect from Smith, a second-year standout from the University of Maryland who overcame a tumultuous childhood -- one in which he had to take on a parental role -- to emerge as one of the Ravens' most respected leaders.” --- Jen Floyd Engel of FOX Sports writes that Ray Lewis will preach this week, but will we listen long enough to be inspired ?

Every Monday morning, the day after my favorite day of the week but still hours before that week's slate of games officially wraps up with “Monday Night Football,” I will bring you my weekly premature NFL power rankings. Why Monday? Because who wants to wait until Tuesday or Wednesday for power rankings? Why 11 teams? I don't really have a good answer for that one. I've always liked odd numbers. What am I basing them on? Who my gut tells me are the toughest teams to beat that week.
