Leaked Madden 19 ratings have eight 49ers ahead of Jimmy Garoppolo

Leaked Madden 19 ratings have eight 49ers ahead of Jimmy Garoppolo

There are a few players that deserve higher ratings. EA Sports will release Madden 19 in a couple months, but in the meantime, some of their ratings have leaked out. It is my understanding that some of these ratings are expected to change, but this gives us an initial idea where EA’s head is at with regard to certain players. The video above (also here) shows the top ten overall player ratings for each team, along with a few of the more specific numbers. The San Francisco 49ers ratings offer some expected numbers, and maybe some surprises. Joe Staley and Richard Sherman both lead the way...

Golden Nuggets: Minicamp is a wrap

Golden Nuggets: Minicamp is a wrap

Your San Francisco 49ers links for Saturday, June 16th 2018 So, word is out that Jimmy Garoppolo is struggling with the long ball and had some ‘things’ at OTAs/minicamp. Ok. As many have said before—I don’t care what Garoppolo does in June, I care about what he does in September. I don’t care if he throws interceptions in an OTA, I care if he throws an interception on Monday Night Football. Garoppolo is not only throwing the ball, but processing all sorts of data, not to mention trying to unlearn the Erhardt-Perkins system and learn a west coast offense. Aaron Rodgers threw...

Garoppolo, Sherman give 49ers leadership they sorely lacked

Garoppolo, Sherman give 49ers leadership they sorely lacked

Back in August of last year, I was on hand for a 49ers training camp practice and wrote an article about it here on Niners Nation. One of the major things I noticed (besides some decent Brian Hoyer accuracy that would never come to fruition in the regular season), was a significant lack of energy and leadership. Afterward, I overheard one reporter describe it: “as boring a practice as I’ve ever seen.” It was. It was lethargic; it lacked enthusiasm, direction, and any semblance of a true team. To be fair, it was practically a group of strangers coming together on both the coaching...

How will Garoppolo handle adversity? 49ers’ unbeaten QB provides a hint

The 49ers went 5-0 after Jimmy Garoppolo became their starter last year, but it can no longer be said they are perfect with their new quarterback. Just ask anybody who witnessed Tuesday’s eyesore of a practice. The two-hour session was so ragged that head coach Kyle Shanahan took solace in the fact that his job title meant he could celebrate that not everything was terrible. “If I was just the offensive coordinator, I would have been very upset,” Shanahan said. “But, fortunately, I’m the head coach so I was happy with the defense...

Top plays for day two of 49ers mandatory minicamp

The offense cleaned up the details a bit but the defense still won the day The San Francisco 49ers concluded their on field portion of their mandatory minicamp before the summer break with the defense getting another win.

Here are the top plays of practice: Jerry Attaochu gets past the line During 11-on-11s Attaouchu got past Mike Persons to Jimmy Garoppolo for a what would have been a sack.
