Expect a competition for backup quarterback in 2019

Expect a competition for backup quarterback in 2019

May the best man wear a headset and carry a clip board. When the 2018 season rolled around, two things were certain on the quarterback position: Jimmy Garoppolo would be starting while C.J. Beathard would serve as his backup. Only one of those statements will be true in 2019. Garoppolo will return from his ACL injury while his backup will be a competition between Beathard and previous third-stringer Nick Mullens. Kyle Shanahan was asked about how the quarterback position would shape out in his press conference on Friday and went into detail of what to expect if the season ended right now:...

Is Kyle Shanahan’s offense still working?

Is Kyle Shanahan’s offense still working?

What’s the problem — QB, scheme, or both? This has been a rough year for the Faithful, between injuries, close losses and the underwhelming development of several highly-touted young players on the San Francisco 49ers roster. Most see these problems as temporary, with the combination of Kyle Shanahan’s offensive schemes, Jimmy Garoppolo’s arm, and a high draft slot for GM John Lynch combining to paint a bright future. Is it time to question that future, though? The 49ers have struggled offensively this year, scoring under 20 points in four of the last six games. Could it be that...

49ers cornerback Richard Sherman loves Jimmy Garoppolo, just wants him to stay healthy

The San Francisco 49ers were one of the most hyped up teams coming into the 2018 NFL season. After years of struggling, there was a new quarterback in town. Jimmy Garoppolo’s impressive showing last season after being traded to the 49ers by the New England Patriots was enough to make the media call San Francisco […] The post 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman loves Jimmy Garoppolo, just wants him to stay healthy appeared first on ClutchPoints.

Who are the 5 most important 49ers heading into 2019, excluding Jimmy G?

Who are the 5 most important 49ers heading into 2019, excluding Jimmy G?

The San Francisco 49ers have slowly transitioned into evaluating more young players, with Marcell Harris, Jeff Wilson, Jullian Taylor, Richie James, and others getting opportunities. Injuries have played a big role, but we are starting to see some healthy scratches of veterans. The 49ers will welcome Jimmy Garoppolo and Jerick McKinnon back to the roster. The team will have a lot of cap space and significant draft picks to add more impact players, but there are plenty of other players who will be looked to as building blocks. With that in mind, I tweeted this out earlier today. Random...

Golden Nuggets: We’re number 1!!!!

Golden Nuggets: We’re number 1!!!!

Your San Francisco 49ers links for Tuesday, December 4th 2018 So the San Francisco 49ers are number 1 in draft positioning. Good. The 49ers need an edge rusher badly and if their record is going to get bit inflated with unnecessary wins when Jimmy Garoppolo returns, might as well make the most of a draft pick. Now I like Bosa, but if the quarterback crop is thin and some teams want one (like the New York Giants) it wouldn’t be a bad idea to entertain some first rounders in order for them to jump to the top. I still want my demon pass rusher, but this is a great draft for the 49ers to...

Jimmy Garoppolo joins 49ers on road trip to face Seahawks

Jimmy Garoppolo joins 49ers on road trip to face Seahawks

This would appear to be his first road trip with the team. The San Francisco 49ers flew up to Seattle on Saturday for their Sunday matchup, and they have a familiar face along for the trip. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo traveled with the team, as shown in the 49ers Instagram story from Saturday. Jimmy Garoppolo making the business trip to #SFvsSEA with the squad!

Do the 49ers have interest in Utah safety Marquise Blair?

Do the 49ers have interest in Utah safety Marquise Blair?

Kind of a bit odd it’s mentioned on a TV broadcast before a college game starts, but maybe there’s something to it. The San Francisco 49ers are heading to the first pick in the 2019 NFL draft and it may be the most important draft for some time. Given the talent they’ve begun to accumulate, and if quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo can stay healthy (and step out of bounds) they won’t be drafting in the top 5 for a while. They’ll have to make those picks count. Edge-rusher is the clear need, but they also will need to fortify that secondary and maybe get some offensive line depth....

49ers point differential is not as bad as their record, but could take a big hit

49ers point differential is not as bad as their record, but could take a big hit

The 49ers are not as bad as their record (cue: Bill Parcells), but it could take a hit these final five weeks. The San Francisco 49ers are 2-9 heading into Week 13, and there is a better than even chance they finish the season 2-14. They could spring one or two upsets along the way, but their schedule gets significantly more difficult these final games compared to their recent stretch. San Francisco currently holds the No. 1 overall pick in the draft, but being tied for the worst record in the league does not tell the whole story. We know about the losses of Jimmy Garoppolo and Jerick...

Golden Nuggets: Seahawks are favored

Golden Nuggets: Seahawks are favored

San Francisco 49ers links for Friday November 30, 2018 Who would have thought last summer that we would be going into Sunday’s game against Seattle as a big underdog? We were the team on its way up while Seattle seemed like the team that was on its way down. We had the quarterback, the new running back, we even had Richard Sherman. Ahkello Witherspoon and Adrian Colbert were looking like pretty promising young players. What could possibly go wrong? Here we are, Garoppolo and McKinnon have been on IR for most of the season, Witherspoon and Colbert have been disappointments and we don’t...

Kyle Shanahan talks about offensive line continuity and building for 2019

Kyle Shanahan talks about offensive line continuity and building for 2019

The San Francisco 49ers have struggled to find any consistency this season, and injuries have been a major culprit. Losing Jimmy Garoppolo and Jerick McKinnon sunk this ship before it really got going, but the team has dealt with an assortment of other injuries that have made it difficult to get on track. One area where the 49ers have seen more continuity than anywhere else is the offensive line. They’ve dealt with some injuries, but have started the same group the entire season except for one position in one game. In Week 8, Erik Magnuson started at center in place of Weston Richburg,...

49ers run game shines against Tampa Bay

49ers run game shines against Tampa Bay

Even as the clouds of doom form, the 49ers continue to be a dominant running team There’s plenty of negative press to read about the San Francisco 49ers. This article hopes to add a little sunshine to your life. Last season, we saw Carlos Hyde have one of his best seasons, and Matt Breida showed a lot of potential in Kyle Shanahan’s offense. While a lot of the attention went to Jimmy Garoppolo, the run game did well. This should’ve been expected given Shanahan’s success in Atlanta, where he turned Tevin Coleman and Devonta Freeman into a dangerous two-headed monster. We hoped to see...

Last time the 49ers faced the Seahawks...

Thanks to our friends in the Pacific Northwest, they knocked C.J. Beathard out and ushered in a new era. A lot of you aren’t looking forward to the San Francisco 49ers taking on the Seattle Seahawks. In Seattle. I don’t blame you, if they were full strength I’d be all for this. I even had the 49ers pencilled in to win this game by two touchdowns thanks to one James Richard Garoppolo. There’s only one thing we can thank the Seahawks for and that’s the last time they tangoed with the 49ers, they forced San Francsico’s hand. The 49ers lost the game, but they had a power-up in...

Nick Mullens to be fifth 49ers starting QB vs. Seahawks since 2016

It’s been five years since the San Francisco 49ers last defeated the Seattle Seahawks, and seven years since they were winners at CenturyLink Field. Preseason expectations had the 49ers as potential playoff contenders, hence this weekend’s game was scheduled for Sunday Night Football before being yanked on the basis of the Niners being a really bad team. Of course, San Francisco was supposed to have franchise quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo for the season, but he was lost to a torn ACL in early September, and since then they’ve gone to C.J. Beathard and (after a Beathard injury) Nick...
