Nice reporting by Daniel Brown of the San Jose Mercury News . Brown, much like Woodward and Bernstein, tracked down his source – in this case, the AWOL’d 49ers DE Kentwan Balmer – the old fashioned way. He knocked on Balmer's front door.
Balmer answered, and Brown had his scoop, as Balmer said he had a meeting scheduled with San Francisco coach Mike Singletary today.
He also said he needed more than two days to deal with his personal issues, which he wouldn’t divulge, but that he planned to play the season with the 49ers.
“People are making a big deal about nothing," Balmer told the Mercury News. "I feel like the 49ers could do a better job of saying that, but it's not my place to say."
Phil Barber of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat has a different take on his Twitter page . Writes Barber: "Niners rep says no meeting scheduled btwn Balmer & Singletary."
