How the 49ers and Eagles have changed since their last meeting

How the 49ers and Eagles have changed since their last meeting

Photo by Ezra Shaw/ There will be two new starting QBs this year, but those aren’t the only changes The San Francisco 49ers and the Philadephia Eagles meet Sunday after the two teams met in Philly early last season. The Eagles won the Week 4 matchup last season 25-20 in one of the most disappointing losses of the season for the Niners, despite not having Jimmy Garoppolo under center. Philadelphia has a new head coach. San Francisco has a new defensive coordinator. That’s just scratching the surface between everything that’s changed. Let’s take a look at the...

Photo by Michael Zagaris/San Francisco 49ers/ Plus, a score prediction Coming off a Week 1 victory over the Detroit Lions, the 49ers head into Philadelphia for a Week 2 clash with an Eagles team coming off of a week one trouncing of the Atlanta Falcons. I’m going to share some keys for a 49er win and give a final score prediction for the game. Keep the Eagles defensive line off balance The Eagles' defensive line is arguably their strongest unit on the team and one that played a major role in their Week 1 victory over Atlanta, logging 21 pressures (per PFF) while...

49ers in Five: Nick Bosa’s scouting report on Jalen Hurts

Photo by Michael Zagaris/San Francisco 49ers/ Yes, he’s mobile, but not like you might think Nick Bosa isn’t the most chatty player behind the podium, but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t say a lot while he’s there. During a media session yesterday, Bosa offered the following scouting report on Eagles’ quarterback Jalen Hurts: “This guy’s definitely different than Kyler [Murray] and different from Russell [Wilson]. It really is tough. It’s a game plan thing. You have to game plan for guys like that and just be disciplined throughout the game...I’m no...

A knee injury could keep Moseley sidelined for another game. How close is E-man to playing? Kyle Shanahan said he was “close” last week, but he hasn’t practiced this season. Arik Armstead and Javon Kinlaw returned to practice, though Kinlaw’s body language here doesn’t seem promising. Why Trey Lance might be more important to the 49ers midweek than on Sunday Said...

Gold Standard: How will the Eagles attack the 49ers?

Photo by Kevin C. Cox/ This week on the Gold Standard podcast, Levin Black and I talked with Bleeding Green Nation’s Eytan Shader to get an opposing view of the Week 2 matchup. Given Jalen Hurts's success last week and the 49ers’ trouble against mobile quarterbacks, how will Philly try and move the ball on offense? “What Nick Sirianni and company are going to do is, rely heavy on the RPOs, and make a decision to leave it up to Jalen Hurts. At the same time, really slim down the play-calling and the risk taking. I don’t think you’ll see DeVonta Smith down field...

49ers run game dominates, Jimmy G’s efficiency, and defensive up and down arrows

Photo by Gregory Shamus/ Today’s film room breaks down the week one win over the Lions by examining the running game, Garoppolo’s 3rd down efficiency, and the positive and negative on defense. For 54 minutes on Sunday versus the Lions, the 49ers led a lopsided game 41-17 in a game where they seemingly dominated all phases. However, unable to capitalize on a 3rd down throw to ice the game with just under six minutes left, the 49ers allowed the Lions to march down the field in garbage time to score, cutting the lead to 16. Then George Kittle muffed an onside kick that...

Why Azeez Al-Shaair was the X-factor against the Lions

Why Azeez Al-Shaair was the X-factor against the Lions

Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports We look at what Al-Shaair did to help out the defense. The 49ers' defense wasn't the sharpest in the victory over the Lions. But, when Azeez Al-Shaair entered the game, there was a new energy, and he was part of the reason key stops were made for the win. We look at what Al-Shaair did to help out the defense below. Giving sheer effort every play Effort is what helped the Niners get to the finish line this past Sunday. Again, the defensive performance wasn't pretty, but they got the job done and looked great at times. Al-Shaair’s...

The 49ers are paying the price for two questionable draft decisions

The 49ers are paying the price for two questionable draft decisions

Junfu Han via Imagn Content Services, LLC The 49ers entered the offseason with a thin secondary and missed an opportunity to solidify their depth at cornerback. Now they’re paying the price. After Jason Verrett’s season-ending ACL injury, the 49ers will face an uphill battle all season without their best cornerback. The Niners have signed a pair of proven veterans (Josh Norman and Dre Kirkpatrick) over the past week to try and alleviate their depth, but it’s unclear what either player has left. In the meantime, defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans could be forced to...

49ers in Five: Javon Kinlaw’s knee injury could be an issue all year

Photo by Michael Zagaris/San Francisco 49ers/ Javon Kinlaw missed practice again yesterday, and Kyle Shanahan was asked whether his knee is going that requires maintenance all season long or if the injury was something he could get over. Unfortunately, the answer wasn’t exactly encouraging: “We’re not sure. That’s why we’re trying to take it slow with him. And when we have it’s gotten better. So, we’ve got to see how that continues to react. I think we’ll be easy with him today. Hopefully if it continues to go well today, he’ll get out there more...
