Kyle Shanahan on turnovers, snap count, Brian Hoyer

The 49ers head coach met with the media Saturday following the team’s loss to the Denver Broncos. We’ve got a full transcript, courtesy of 49ers PR. Watch video here. Last week, sloppy, a lot of penalties this week. A lot of penalties, turnovers. At what point, do you start to get a little bit concerned about the direction things are going? “That whole game was concerning. You start out the first half with four turnovers. The penalties, again, I have to go in and look at. It seemed like there were a bunch on both sides. I know that we get a lot called in the preseason. I’ve got to...

49ers QB Hoyer on gaffe: ‘It’s the worst feeling’

Kyle Juszczyk shows elusiveness, physicality on same play

Kyle Juszczyk shows elusiveness, physicality on same play

The San Francisco 49ers signed free agent fullback Kyle Juszczyk this offseason with the hopes of turning him into an “offensive weapon.” John Lynch gave him the moniker in a press conference, and since then, Juszczyk has spent his time split between the running back and tight end rooms. On Saturday, he showed off the combination of skills that are probably going to make him a pretty popular figure. Juszczyk had one reception for 21 yards on Saturday, and in the video above, you can see him make a nice cut to elude a linebacker, and then follow it by bulldozing a defensive...

Brian Hoyer explains random fumble, 49ers penalties, offensive struggles

The 49ers quarterback met with the media after the Broncos game. Watch video here. Saturday brought us an ugly evening of football from the San Francisco 49ers, with the first team offense looking particularly rough. There were certainly some quality moments, but there is no way we can overlook the turnovers, penalties, and inconsistency. The worst play for Brian Hoyer was his fumble when he was trying to complete a pass to wide receiver Jeremy Kerley. He went to fire the pass and the ball just fell out of his hand. He talked about it after the game, describing what...

But on Saturday night, the 49ers wanted to see what the veterans could do.Williams entered the game late and played only four snaps of offense. He carried once for 1 yard. Another designed run play was aborted when a Denver Broncos defensive lineman got into the backfield so quickly he forced a fumble before the handoff could occur.

SANTA CLARA Quarterback Brian Hoyer threw the ball well enough to impress the Denver Broncos defensive backs during the 49ers two joint practices.While he hit most of his passes on Saturday night, it was one that slipped away that summarized the 49ers 33-14 loss to the Broncos in the second exhibition game for both teams.Hoyer had plenty of time to throw and saw a potential big play unfolding as he started to throw to wide receiver Jeremy Kerley. But the ball popped out of Hoyers right hand as he began to throw.

Four early turnovers and 20-0 halftime deficit ruined the 49ers optimism in their 2017 home debut, a 33-14 exhibition loss to the Denver Broncos.

49ers lose a laugher thanks to comedy of offensive errors

First, Brian Hoyer stumbled, and then he fumbled, and his consecutive-play blooper reel neatly captured a disastrous performance for the 49ers’ first-team offense Saturday night. In a 33-14 preseason loss to the Broncos, the 49ers quarterback directed an attack that left Levi’s Stadium aghast. The results of the four first-half drives by the 49ers’ offensive starters: punt (three-and-out), fumble, interception and fumble. It couldn’t have been any worse. Or maybe it could have? The 49ers, after all,...
