Dear 49ers, Hit the Panic Button

During primetime on Sunday, the San Francisco 49ers scored 10 points while their defense held the Denver Broncos to only 9 points, and…the 49ers still lost. San Francisco has arguably already faced the three worst teams they will be playing this year and yet they sit at 1-2. We might just barely be approaching week four but, it may be time for the 49ers to … Continue reading Dear 49ers, Hit the Panic Button

Start ‘Em or Sit ‘Em: Week 2

Start ‘Em Julio Jones: Jones got really involved against Dallas last week, in both rushing and receiving. Going into a Saints defense where you can be almost certain Marshon Lattimore is going to be 1v1 with Mike Evans all day, this will free up Jones to be the primary target for Tom Brady. Look for him to do well this week. Devin Singletary: The back … Continue reading Start ‘Em or Sit ‘Em: Week 2

Week One: It’s the San Francisco 49ers vs… the San Francisco 49ers?

When it rains, it pours. Literally and figuratively. In unfavorable weather, the San Francisco 49ers fell to the Chicago Bears 19-10 in an upset at Soldier Field. Already regarded as one of the worst teams in the NFL this season among a division with two playoff-caliber teams, the Bears will not go anywhere with this win. The 49ers, however, turned some heads, especially considering Chicago … Continue reading Week One: It’s the San Francisco 49ers vs… the San Francisco 49ers?

Start ‘Em or Sit ‘Em: Week 1

Start ‘Em Jerry Jeudy: Everyone knows this game is important for Russell Wilson returning home to do work against his old team. It is going to be a huge statement game against a Seattle team that I think is going to be one of the weakest in the league (see my predictions for each team’s season here). This can only stand to benefit Jeudy, who … Continue reading Start ‘Em or Sit ‘Em: Week 1

Jimmy Garoppolo is Staying in the Bay

Jimmy Garoppolo’s time in San Francisco is not over yet, as many believed it would be by the time the 53-man roster was finalized. Instead, the 30-year-old quarterback becomes the highest-paid backup in the league. Garoppolo’s salary, which was upwards of $20k, seemingly held the front office back and may be why the 49ers did not sign any big names this offseason, with the exception … Continue reading Jimmy Garoppolo is Staying in the Bay

On Friday night, the San Francisco 49ers defeated the Green Bay Packers 28-21 and fans finally got a glimpse of what Trey Lance will bring to the Bay as a first-time QB1 in the NFL. Backup quarterbacks Nate Sudfeld and rookie Brock Purdy also showed out and gave the 49ers coaching staff a good problem. San Francisco’s second-string secondary got off to a rocky start … Continue reading Bay Area Football is Back
