This is not a GPS game, per se, but you can certainly look at this four-week stretch that begins Sunday as an indicator of where the 49ers stand in the NFL.
After watching and re-watching every play from the 49ers’ 31-13 victory over the Lions on Sunday, it’s time to toss around a few kudos and some observations:
It’s another Win Monday in 49erland, so the players will not be around today.
Check here early and often for all the news and notes from today’s 49ers-Lions game.
Since the 2004 season, the 49ers have played 67 games. They’ve won 19 games during that time. But here’s an amazing fact: The 49ers have won only two games by more than a touchdown.
OK, first things first. I called it Victory Monday. The 49ers actually call it “Win Monday.” I believe my phrase has a little better alliteration, but oh well.
It’s a gorgeous day in Seattle, where the 49ers and Seahawks are set for an NFC West game. This is unlike the past couple years, when wind and rain has greeted us.
The Mike Holmgren Farewell Tour is in its second week. As you know, the Seahawks coach (San Francisco native and former 49ers offensive coordinator) is coaching his final season in Seattle.
Coach Mike Nolan held his day-after-game press conference in the team’s defensive meeting room.
It’s a spectacular day here at Candlestick Park, where the 49ers open the season at 1:15 p.m. against the Cardinals.
Hey, it’s never too early to start talking about next year’s draft.
