Will Solomon Thomas be back with 49ers next season?

Photo by Brian Rothmuller/Icon Sportswire via The third pick of the 2017 NFL Draft is eligible to become an unrestricted free agent during the offseason. The San Francisco 49ers dealt with a ton of injuries to big-name players during the 2020 NFL regular season. Losing Nick Bosa, George Kittle, Richard Sherman, Deebo Samuel and Jimmy Garoppolo for long stretches killed any hope of returning to the Super Bowl. One player who went down early in the season and didn’t get mentioned as much is defensive lineman Solomon Thomas. The No. 3 overall pick from the 2017 NFL...

PFF grades and snap counts: Witherspoon ends his season on a strong note

PFF grades and snap counts: Witherspoon ends his season on a strong note

Photo by Norm Hall/ We went over a few takeaways from the 49ers loss to the Seahawks in Week 17. Now, it’s time to look at the snap counts and PFF grades. Let’s start with the offense. Offense - 66 snaps Colton McKivitz started, but he and Tom Compton were close to playing the same number of snaps. I laughed when Cracraft caught a first down, his first of the season, and got up and signaled the same way George Kittle does when he moves the chains. What a fall from grace for Jerick McKinnon and Tevin Coleman, who combined to play the same number of...

49ers vs. Seahawks: First half open thread

Photo by Tom Pennington/ The season from hell officially ends today. The San Francisco 49ers take on the Seattle Seahawks in their 2020 NFL regular season finale. The 6-9 Niners are going for their second win in a row after defeating the Arizona Cardinals in Week 16. C.J. Beathard will make his second consecutive start at quarterback. The 2017 third-round pick was helped by the return of superstar tight end George Kittle last week. Beathard went 13-of-22 for 183 yards and three touchdowns against Arizona. Unfortunately, the 49ers’ offense will be without two of its...

Film room: So long Bob and thanks for all the memories, plus George Kittle’s return sparks the offense

Photo by Norm Hall/ Defensive coordinator Robert Saleh’s brilliant gameplan slows down Cardinals offense and George Kittle’s return positively impacts the running game and passing game. The 49ers got a much-needed morale-boosting win on Saturday afternoon on the road at home against the Arizona Cardinals. While the 20-12 final score isn’t indicative of the overall product on the field, it felt like a blowout nonetheless, with the offense delivering on nearly every drive in some form. If not for two missed field goals and an extra point, the Cardinals would’ve...

Stats & Eggs Podcast: Will everything be better when Nick Bosa returns?

Photo by Ezra Shaw/ George Kittle and Fred Warner seem to think so When Nick Bosa tore his ACL against the Jets, I said that the 49ers’ hopes for a return trip to the Super Bowl went down with him. To be fair, a lot of other stuff has also happened since then that has contributed to my prediction being correct, but I’m taking credit for nailing that anyway. We haven’t heard a ton about Bosa’s recovery, but the snippets we’ve seen do seem to be positive, which is obviously a good thing. Two 49ers have made comments recently about how much they’re looking...

The latest opinion comes from none other than George Kittle, who had nothing but words of support for Garoppolo during an interview with KNBR on Tuesday. “I do have a little bit of a voice, and I think I’ve said multiple times I love playing football with Jimmy G., and our team is different when we’re out there...I can’t say enough about the leader that Jimmy G. is and how his...

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan expects Jimmy Garoppolo to be the team’s starting quarterback next season. You can count the Niners’ top receiving target, tight end George Kittle, as a vocal supporter of that idea. On Tuesday, Kittle expressed his admiration for Garoppolo, who, when healthy, has been QB1 since being traded to […] The post 49ers’ George Kittle’s future outlook on QB Jimmy Garoppolo appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Photo by Christian Petersen/ Plus Kittle’s return, a superb showing in the secondary, and why it’s easy to play quarterback in this offense. On Saturday, we saw what this 49ers team, a team that’s been decimated with injuries on both sides of the ball, is talented enough to beat a playoff team if they don’t turn the ball over. C.J. Beathard was efficient, Jeff Wilson Jr. was effective, and George Kittle did enough through the air while the defense continued to be excellent. Here are four takeaways from the 49ers' win over the Cardinals. Playing quarterback is...

49ers shut down the Cardinals 20-12

Photo by Christian Petersen/ Welcome back, Kittle We were all going to keep an eye on this game whether or not the 49ers could limit Arizona’s big play. On the first drive, Ahkello Witherspoon gave up a 38-yard bomb to Christian Kirk. It wasn't easy to tell if Kirk had pushed off, but the throw was perfect, and Witherspoon couldn’t get a hand on the pass. The Niners defense held in the red zone to force a field goal that made it 3-0, Arizona. On the 49ers' second possession, C.J. Beathard found Brandon Aiyuk and George Kittle for a pair of 15-yard gains. Beathard...
