When I asked Mike Singletary yesterday why the 49ers did not employ the shotgun/spread in the second half (other than third-and-long situations) after having success with it at the end of the first half, I did not fully understand his answer. He spoke in vague terms about the coaches not having exposure to the […]
I’m working from home today. The kids have missed several days of school, and I’ve felt better. So I figured it would be best to just be quarantined here for the day. I quickly re-watched the 49ers’ game Sunday against the Texans to provide the 49ers’ 53-man report. But, first, I’d like to dispel […]
Tight end Vernon Davis said he’ll take time this week to watch film, get in a couple workouts and travel back home to the DC area. Then, he’ll meet up with his brother and Dolphins cornerback, Vontae. The Dolphins are also on the bye week, which I should’ve known before I asked Vernon if he’d get a […]
Before we get to the every-player review from the 49ers’ 35-0 victory over the Rams, we’re going to check in with a perspective from St. Louis. I spoke with Jim Thomas, the Rams beat reporter for the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, to get his thoughts on the 49ers before he caught his red-eye flight back […]
Frank Gore did something Sunday that only Hall of Famer Barry Sanders has done. That’s some pretty good company. Gore scored on running plays of 79 and 80 yards. Only Sanders has scored on TD runs of 75 yards or more in the same game in the history of the NFL. What made it […]
The 49ers’ pass rush and secondary were the main reasons the 49ers left Arizona on Sunday with a 20-16 season-opening victory.
Breaking down every 49ers player Here’s the player-by-player rundown of the 49ers’ roster from their 21-20 exhibition-game victory over the Raiders on Saturday night at Candlestick Park. Thankfully, I completed this at a somewhat-reasonable hour.
49ers: Player-by-player recap Here’s the all-80 man review from the 49ers’ 17-16 victory over the Denver Broncos in the exhibition opener Friday night at Candlestick Park.
Niners’ defensive review On Sunday, we provided a player-by-player look at the 49ers’ offense. Today, we turn to the defense and specialists.
Niners’ offensive review Today was a quiet day in 49erland, as the team had just a brief walk-through practice scheduled for the afternoon.
The 49ers begin organized team activities (OTAs) on Monday, and most of the 82 81 players on their roster are expected to participate.
The Dolphins were the worst team in the league last season. Now, they’re one game away from winning the AFC East. The Falcons were horrendous, too. They’ve already clinched a playoff spot. So, my question to you: Are the 49ers really that far from being a legitimate playoff team?
There are 22 players on the field, and that’s a lot of people to watch when viewing a game live. I hear there are football coaches who can watch film and have a pretty good idea how every player on the field fared on any given play without rewinding and viewing it multiple times.
