Golden Nuggets: You’re up, Tarvarius

Photo by Elsa/ Your daily San Francisco 49ers links for Saturday, October 24, 2020 The San Francisco 49ers entered the season with their starting secondary as Richard Sherman, Emmanuel Moseley, K’Waun Williams, Jaquiski Tartt, and Jimmie Ward. Seven weeks into the season, and the Niners will only have Moseley on the field. Why the 49ers are in Good Hands With Their Backup Safeties In fact, I would go as far as to say the 49ers are in good hands with their backup safeties. Moore, Harris and Cyprien each have experience as starters. Moore and Harris specifically have started for the...

Barnwell on 49ers’ 2020 playoff chances

Photo by Michael Zagaris/San Francisco 49ers/ Injuries are the biggest reason why San Francisco has taken a step back, but ESPN’s Bill Barnwell points out a couple of other factors that are hurting the Niners’ playoff chances. The San Francisco 49ers are still in the hunt for one of the seven NFC playoff spots. The Niners are 3-3, but most pundits expected them to better heading into Week 7 of the 2020 NFL season.

NFL Power Rankings Week 7: 49ers are in the bottom half of the league

Photo by Michael Zagaris/San Francisco 49ers/ The Niners will look to get above .500 with a win this weekend over the New England Patriots. The San Francisco 49ers got a much-needed 24-16 win over their NFC West rivals, the Los Angeles Rams in Week 6. The downside to the victory is that the Niners suffered some more injuries to key players. Running back Raheem Mostert and offensive lineman Ben Garland are both on the IR, joining Richard Sherman, K’Waun Williams and Dee Ford on the sidelines. San Francisco is 3-3 and will be on the road in Week 7 to take on the New England...

Despite injuries, 49ers’ defense is holding strong

Photo by Lachlan Cunningham/ Robert Saleh’s unit has responded well despite missing most of its best players. When you look at which players are missing from the San Francisco 49ers’ defense, you might mistake it for a portion of the NFC’s Pro Bowl roster. Nick Bosa, Richard Sherman, Dee Ford, and K’Waun Williams are all sidelined with various injuries. Despite the rash of injuries, defensive coordinator Robert Saleh still has the unit playing strong. San Francisco sits fifth in total yards allowed per game at 321.0. It’s impressive that despite missing Sherman, Williams,...

49ers’ cornerback Jason Verrett continues to impress

49ers’ cornerback Jason Verrett continues to impress

Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/ Verrett’s presence has helped San Francisco’s stay afloat without Richard Sherman and K’Waun Williams. In Week 3 of the 2019 NFL season, the Mason Rudolph and the Pittsburgh Steelers torched San Francisco 49ers’ cornerback Jason Verrett. It looked like the former Pro Bowler’s career might be done after he injured his ankle, but now a little over a year later, he is establishing himself as the Niners’ best corner. With Richard Sherman, K’Waun Williams, Emmanuel Moseley, and Ahkello Witherspoon all injured at various points, Verrett has often...

Photo by Philip Pacheco/ The San Francisco 49ers look like a lost, disorganized and dysfunctional football team after five games. The San Francisco 49ers are 2-3 after playing the easiest part of their 2020 NFL regular season schedule. It didn’t take long for the warning signs to appear. The Niners looked terrible in a Week 1 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, which saw the team lose All-Pros Richard Sherman and George Kittle to injuries. Then, everything came apart the following week against the New York Jets. San Francisco lost Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas for the season. Quarterback...

It’s tough to place where San Francisco is in the NFL’s pecking order. Losing Nick Bosa in the second game of the year...
