Will 49ers Buckner or Foster upstage Sherman on Monday night?

Richard Sherman has served as a model pro since joining the 49ers, but isn't it time DeForest Buckner and Reuben Foster make like first-round picks and star?

“I could see it in his eyes” - Reuben Foster on C.J. Beathard

“I could see it in his eyes” - Reuben Foster on C.J. Beathard

Foster discusses the toughness of Beathard, the fast start and loving the crowd at Stub Hub The 49ers, who had a slow start facing the Chiefs, got a fast start against the Chargers but couldn't keep the momentum going in the second half. Linebacker Reuben Foster said the defense was moving in “slow motion” later in the game and added “That’s not our defense.” Foster, however, was happy and proud of the large number of 49ers fans in the stadium. He said it “does something to us” adding to the level of adrenaline on game day. Of the 27,000 plus fans in the stadium, the...

It’s been a “Roody-Poo” filled week

Who would have thought this topic would have lasted all week? It was somber 49ers locker room in Kansas City with the injury of Jimmy Garoppolo looming over it as well as the team’s second loss. Leave it to Reuben Foster to lighten up the mood a little when he spoke about his confidence in quarterback C.J. Beathard who would be taking over as the leader of the offense. Even Dwayne Johnson, “The Rock,” took notice and replied: Roody-Poo candy asses not allowed.— Dwayne Johnson (@TheRock) September 24, 2018 Foster was obviously pretty excited that The Rock reached out to him:...

Reuben Foster critical of his ‘uncalled for’ performance. The stakes are even higher now

The 49ers must flip the script without franchise quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo — and it starts on defense. There’s perhaps no more important player to San Francisco on that side of …

Foster discusses getting back on the field and the loss of Garoppolo

Foster discusses getting back on the field and the loss of Garoppolo

Foster is always an interesting interview - here he discusses his return, the second half adjustments as well as his confidence in C.J. Beathard The 49ers went into Kansas City a little stronger with Reuben Foster slated for his return after missing the first two games from suspension. Foster finished the day with six solo tackles, one assist and one pass break up. While he gave everyone a scare, leaving the game when he had the wind knocked out of him, he went back in and played until the end — missing only one snap. In his post game media availability Foster discussed how good it felt...

Kyle Shanahan, C.J. Beathard, others discuss 49ers loss to Chiefs

Several members from the San Francisco 49ers met with the media to share their thoughts on the lost to the Kansas City Chiefs. We have transcripts Head Coach Kyle Shanahan “Jimmy Garoppolo, it is a knee. We are fearing ACL and we will find out for sure tomorrow. Richard Sherman is calf. It was bothering him in the week and he did not return. Adrian Colbert, hip same thing. He did not return. Mike Person had a foot and same thing, it was bothering him and he did return. Reuben Foster, abdomen he returned. D.J. Reed Jr, he returned.” How devastating is Jimmy’s injury? “I mean any...

Will we see a three inside linebacker look in Kansas City?

Will we see a three inside linebacker look in Kansas City?

Neither Robert Saleh nor Kyle Shanahan would admit they would be going in this direction, but they didn’t deny it either The 49ers are finally back to full strength at linebacker as they look to have Fred Warner, Malcolm Smith and Reuben Foster all available when they face the Chiefs. While neither head coach Kyle Shanahan nor defensive coordinator Robert Saleh would admit to planning on all three being on the field at once, Saleh did explain that they always want the best 11 on the field: We’ll see. That all depends. It’s the same thing, we’re going to dress our best 11 however...

49ers promote DB Powell; release LB Garvin

49ers promote DB Powell; release LB Garvin

Are these moves anticipating a lack of DBs on Sunday? The San Francisco 49ers announced a pair of transactions on Saturday, promoting defensive back Tyvis Powell and releasing linebacker Terence Garvin. Both moves shouldn’t be surprising. With Reuben Foster off suspension and Malcolm Smith (hopefully) getting ready to play, the 49ers didn’t need a linebacker. Unfortunately, the secondary is banged up with safety Jaquiski Tartt listed as questionable due to a shoulder injury. They need secondary help now. Powell saw some action in late 2017 getting promoted in the later-half of...

Golden Nuggets: Why did the 49ers lose on Mack?

Golden Nuggets: Why did the 49ers lose on Mack?

Your San Francisco 49ers links for Saturday, September 22nd, 2018 More cryptic info has come out on the San Francisco 49ers pursuit of demon pass-rusher Khalil mack. A pursuit that ended in failure when he was instead dealt to the Chicago Bears for a really strange deal. After watching him make Green Bay his own house for three quarters, it’s apparent he could have made the 49ers defense something. Him? DeForest Buckner? Reuben Foster? Fred Warner? Richard Sherman? That has the chance of legendary status. Alas, it’s not meant to be. So what did the 49ers offer? My guess is something...

Robert Saleh talked missed tackles, rolling the free safety over, Chiefs offense

The 49ers defensive coordinator met with the media on Thursday. We’ve got a full transcript. Has LB Reuben Foster just kind of picked up where he left off as far as the last time you saw him on the practice field? “He’s got fresh legs. He looks fast. So, we’re excited to have him back. Love his energy.” What were you guys able to do with him? Was he staying on it mentally through the time he was away? “Whatever the NFL allowed us to. I know he wasn’t allowed at practice. To be honest with you, personally, with the linebackers coach we were so consumed with trying to make...

Reuben Foster excited to be back, ready to face ‘fast as hell’ Chiefs offense

The San Francisco 49ers welcome back a critical piece to their defense this week with the return of linebacker Reuben Foster. He was suspended the first two games of the season, and was able to re-join the team on Monday following the 49ers Week 2 win over the Detroit Lions. Foster met with the media on Thursday, and Cam Inman got some video of a couple minutes of the session. You can watch it below. Foster opens talking about how he watched the Lions game. “I can honestly say I was a true fan, I was a true fan. I was at the store about to get me some chicken — no, not Chik-Fil-A,...

SANTA CLARA — Reuben Foster finished his two-game suspension like “a true fan” watching on his home television, and that meant cringing, hollering and cheering the 1-1 start. Then came Monday. “It was just like a holiday, just knowing I can come back and play the game I love, for real,” Foster said Thursday. “I’m […]

I don’t know if it’s officially been done, but I know it has to be by one. It should be any minute.” So, with Reuben coming back into the fold, where is he at physically, mentally? Ready to go? “He seems great mentally. I’ll find out physically. He’s been away two weeks, but I’m pretty optimistic he’s going to be all right physically. But, we’ll see it out on the field today.” What...
