49ers brace for Gurley’s encore; Garoppolo returns

If the San Francisco 49ers (1-5) are to upset the Los Angeles Rams (6-0), containing NFL rushing leader Todd Gurley should be key to that.

Previewing the Jets opposition: Minnesota Vikings

The banged-up Jets have a chance to move to 4-3 at home on Sunday, but it won’t be easy, as they face off against Minnesota. The Vikings are 3-2-1 on the season, but they’ve faced a tough schedule. They beat the Eagles, tied with the Packers and handed Jimmy Garoppolo his first loss as a starter. In one of their two losses, they only lost by seven to the Rams, but they also got blown out in Buffalo. Let’s review how their roster shapes up: Quarterbacks The big story on Sunday is Kirk Cousins, who probably would have become the Jets’ starting quarterback in the offseason had he...

The NFL Trade Deadline is Approaching - Will the Redskins Make a Move?

The NFL Trade Deadline is Approaching - Will the Redskins Make a Move?

The deadline to consummate a trade ends on Tuesday, October 30th at 4pm. Trades in the NFL are not very common mid-season, but they can and do happen. Last year, there were five trades before the deadline, with the biggest name being Jimmy Garoppolo, who went from the Patriots to 49ers. Will the Redskins be in the market for a new player via trade? Some names being floated around that may be able to help the Redskins are listed below: Amari Cooper (24) 6’1” 210: The Redskins need help at wide receiver. Cooper has the ability to stretch the field vertically, and is excellent with the...

Jimmy Garoppolo wanders into 49ers locker room ... and quickly leaves

Jimmy Garoppolo wanders into 49ers locker room ... and quickly leaves

I don’t blame him for wanting to avoid media availability. San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo had surgery on his torn ACL two weeks ago, and by all accounts, it was a successful procedure. Prior to the procedure, head coach Kyle Shanahan said Garoppolo would be away from the team for a bit while he was taking care of the early stages of his rehab. His rehab is still in the early stages, but Garoppolo made a brief appearance in the locker room on Thursday. Jimmy Garoppolo was at the #49ers facility today. He was on crutches, took two steps out of the trainers office into the...

Rams-49ers: Five 49ers to watch

The NFC West long time rivalry continues as the Rams travel to take on Shanahan’s 49ers. Rivalries. The NFL has many of them due to their division/conference structure and one rivalry that will continue to benefit is between the Los Angeles Rams and San Francisco 49ers. With the Rams moving back to California, this matchup has only been reinvigorated. Here are some of the players to lookout for. RB Matt Breida With QB Jimmy Garoppolo out for the season, the 49ers have leaned a bit more on the running game. The biggest beneficiary of that is Matt Breida, a second year player out of...

The Game Manager, Week 6: Beat harder

The Game Manager, Week 6: Beat harder

This week’s column is guaranteed to be 100 percent defense-free. I repeat: this is a defense-free zone. Robert Saleh’s name won’t even come up. (Except for that time.) As 2018 starts to feel more and more like 2017, there are a lot of ways you could feel about the San Francisco 49ers. I think everybody was on the same page early -- hope for Jimmy Garoppolo and the team to make a leap this year, possibly mixed with some worries about several holes on the roster, and how the defense might perform as a whole. But after the exciting, though ultimately doomed, 49ers performance in Green...

This one hurts

It was another heart breaking loss for the 49ers but it’s not because they lack confidence or need to learn how to win - they just need to finish The 49ers faced the Packers on a very brisk Monday night in a match up that was supposed to headline Jimmy Garoppolo and Aaron Rodgers. Football fans weren't disappointed though, because it ended up being a showdown that wasn’t decided until the final minutes. Unfortunately for the 49ers, it wasn’t the outcome that they were looking for, victory in reach for most of the game. It was a flashback to the 2017 season when the team lost five...

Report: 49ers ‘very likely’ to sign QB Tom Savage

The 49ers need some insurance in case starting QB C.J. Beathard gets hurt (odds seem high of that happening). Potentially enter * shudder * Tom Savage San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan has said since Jimmy Garoppolo suffered his torn ACL that if the roster could accommodate it, he would like to add a third quarterback to the depth chart. Injuries have been a problem all season long, and so the 49ers have stuck with C.J. Beathard and Nick Mullens as their two quarterbacks. That may be changing, according to ESPN reporter Jordan Schultz. He is reporting the team is “very...

MNF: 49ers vs Packers Game Thread

Monday Night Football, Week 6. Tonight the San Francisco 49ers travel to Wisconsin to take on the Green Bay Packers in a matchup of disappointing NFC teams. The 1-4 49ers were expected to make a run at the playoffs this year. However, once star quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo went down for the season the 49ers’ hopes were dashed. They have struggled to stay afloat, with 2nd year tight end George Kittle one of the few bright spots in a dismal season. The Packers almost suffered the same fate as the 49ers as Aaron Rodgers suffered a knee injury that has hobbled him throughout the season, though...

Week 6 Monday Night Football 49ers @ Packers open thread and Patriots rooting guide

Join the discussion! The (1-4) San Francisco 49ers are on the road to take on the (2-2-1) Green Bay Packers in what should have been a great game with two star quarterbacks in Aaron Rodgers and Jimmy Garoppolo. Unfortunately, with Garoppolo out for the year, the 49ers look listless and the Packers should be the heavy favorites at home. Kickoff is at 8:15 PM on ESPN. The New England Patriots will be rooting for the Packers to win for the sake of “strength of schedule” tiebreakers that might come into play later in the year. Use this as the open thread for discussion.

The Packers offense will dictate how this game goes for Green Bay

Green Bay is a sizable favorite, but if the offense is inconsistent once again, it opens the door for an upset. The San Francisco 49ers face the Green Bay Packers Monday evening in a matchup of old rivals dealing with a host of issues in 2018. The 49ers are playing out the season without Jimmy Garoppolo and hope their defense can take a step forward. The Packers are in the hunt in the NFC North, but their offense has been inconsistent thus far. It’s game day, which means things are just about settled for kickoff. Earlier today, Pat offered up reasons the 49ers will and lose this prime...

The 49ers will win/lose against the Packers if...

A quarterback that’s immobile is still elite, but the 49ers should take advantage of the fact he’s not near as brisk as years past. After the Arizona Cardinals game, you wouldn’t be off-base to predict the 49ers didn’t win a single game for the rest of the season. While the mantra of “any given Sunday” can apply to the 49ers in 2018—which couldn’t be applied in 2017 B.G.(Before Garoppolo)—they still have an uphill battle to win another game. The Packers were once on an equal level with roster talent, but now they are going through their own issues with play-calling,...
