-- Steve Young took a few hacks on the driving range of Edgewood Tahoe Golf Course, then sought some swing tips from fellow celebrity duffers. Golf mechanics might be an easier fix than the credibility of Young's former team, which concerns the Hall of Fame quarterback and 49ers legend. "One of the biggest things is holding onto the perception that you're a great team," Young said at the American Century Championship. True enough, in the casino across the street, the 49ers' odds of winning the Super Bowl set to be played in their home stadium Feb. 7 have climbed to 40-1. They're a favorite in one category: to find a home in the NFC West cellar. They've become longer long shots as this harrowing offseason has unfolded, those odds starting at 25-1 before growing with every retirement or free-agent defection. "They're the longest odds they've been in a long time," said Dave Cudney, manager of Harrah's and Harveys Race & Sports Book. "They lost their coach, they lost key players, and so it's a lot of unknowns. Add that up and the 49ers are losing what Young called "the perception game," which he described as striking fear into opponents before a game starts. "That needs to be re-established, and that is not easy," Young said. Gamblers, and the 49ers' brass, sure think Kaepernick can. "They like him and think he can do it. I'm not convinced," Cudney said.
