The NFC is loaded with good clubs, and the 49ers aren’t one of them yet. They need a defense. They’re incomplete. And they don’t care.
Only one player — fullback Kyle Juszczyk — made the Pro Bowl, but several were named alternates and others were outright snubs.
At his Wednesday press conference, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan discussed the Jaguars, the Garoppolo Effect and the possibility his quarterback tipped plays against the Titans last week.
During his Monday press conference, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan discussed quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, kicker Robbie Gould and more.
Goodiwn leads the NFL with 19.1 yards per catch, he has caught 41 passes for 783 yards through 13 games and, the past four games, has caught 19 passes for 366 yards. That’s a whopping 91.5 yards per game.
I bet you didn’t know that the 49ers’ newest undrafted free agent QB, Kory Faulkner, led Southern Illinois’ offense to a 46.4 third-down-conversion percentage last season, 14th-best in FCS football.
