Breaking down LB Fred Warner’s best game of the season vs. Giants

Breaking down LB Fred Warner’s best game of the season vs. Giants

Linebacker Fred Warner continues to shine in his rookie season, let’s take a look at his performance vs. New York. When the 49ers chose to select a linebacker with their third-round pick in last year’s draft, many fans initially wondered what the need was. San Francisco’s brain trust selected linebacker Reuben Foster the year before and handed out a large contract to former Raider Malcolm Smith. Yet 10 games into this season, the most consistent defensive player on the 49ers behind corner Richard Sherman is linebacker Fred Warner. Leading the 49ers in combined tackles (77), Warner is...

Grading each rookie for Seahawks through first 10 games of 2018

The Seahawks needed more from their rookie class of 2018 than they did from other draft classes in several years. How is the class grading so far? The Seahawks aren’t a franchise used to needing their rookies to be very impactful. For nearly a decade Seattle has had talented veterans like Richard...

Jameis Winston returns in Bucs loss to Giants

Jameis Winston returns in Bucs loss to Giants

It appears the 49ers will get Winston instead of Fitzmagic. The Ryan Fitzmagic era came to a close ... again. Ryan Fitzpatrick threw three interceptions and was benched for Jameis Winston in the third quarter. Winston put together a solid comeback effort, but it was not quite enough and the New York Giants prevailed 38-35 over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This game was notable for a couple reasons. The first is that it bumps the Giants further back of the San Francisco 49ers in the 2019 NFL Draft order. The Giants entered the day 2-7 and tied with the Arizona Cardinals at a half game behind...

Week 11 game thread

Week 11 game thread

It’s Sunday and it’s a bye. Any non-49ers games got your attention? Welcome to another Sunday where the 49ers do not play football. This week it’s a bye, so we aren’t getting any more prime time shenanigans out of it, but that again lets us watch the rest of the league that is the NFL. We actually have some intriguing matchups this time around. The big one is the Monday night contest between the Los Angeles Rams and the Kansas City Chiefs. It got moved out of Mexico due to field conditions, but I’m anxious to see how this game turns out. Beyond that, the Sunday night game with...

Rooting guide for 2019 draft order

Rooting guide for 2019 draft order

The 49ers are closing in on a top-5 pick. Can they get the No. 1 pick? The San Francisco 49ers lost a very very important game for their draft positioning. That last second meltdown against the New York Giants now takes the Giants out of the equation for a top pick. At least for now. We’ll see how the Giants fare as the rest of the season goes on, but one potential roadblock has been avoided for the short-term. The Giants are looking for a pick of their own, and could potentially look to the 49ers as a trade partner in the 2019 draft if there’s a quarterback they covet, provided the...

Picks against the spread for Week 11 NFL games

Picks against the spread for Week 11 NFL games

The San Francisco 49ers are in their bye week in Week 11, but we’ve got plenty of football to enjoy on Sunday. Time for my Westgate SuperContest picks, as well as my picks for the remaining games this week. Welcome to Week 11 of the NFL season! The San Francisco 49ers are on a bye this week, which means we get to spend Sunday either not thinking about football, or spending our time tracking how the draft order is impacted. Either way, we don’t have to stress too much over the 49ers. The 2018 NFL season is officially in full swing, which means regular season betting is back. I’m back...
Why can’t the Niners hold a lead?

Why can’t the Niners hold a lead?

They usually start strong anyway, but that’s not enough. 14-0 and 17-6 over the Los Angeles Chargers. 30-23 over the Green Bay Packers. 15-3 over the Arizona Cardinals. 20-10 over the New York Giants. This edition of the San Francisco 49ers can build a lead over a lot of teams, some of them actually good, but it has a terrible time holding on to those leads. What’s going on? Why can’t they close out games? What makes this even more frustrating is that, with starting QB Jimmy Garoppolo out injured for the year, this team has developed a really strong running game behind a powerful,...

Dante Pettis opens up about interests outside of football with a great article

Dante Pettis opens up about interests outside of football with a great article

There were concerns he wasn’t all in on the game, but Pettis seems The big criticism about Dante Pettis coming out of college (via University of Washington) wasn’t his interest in football, but his interest outside of it. Pettis is a true renaissance man, with passions in photography, art, literature, and a whole lot of other things that have little to do with football. This of course made scouts worry if Pettis was really serious about this football thing given his love of the arts. Pettis recently penned an article in The Players Tribune talking about his various outside interests...
Revisiting 49ers betting lines from May

Revisiting 49ers betting lines from May

They changed plenty — no surprise — but there is some information to glean from the numbers. The San Francisco 49ers return from their bye next week to face the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on the road. The official line will arrive Sunday afternoon, but the Westgate SuperBook posted its lookahead line earlier this week, and the 49ers were listed as a five-point underdog. I don’t expect a big difference between that number and the official number on Sunday, but if the Bucs either thump the Giants or get thumped by the Giants, maybe we see some movement. Back in May, CG Technology, an operator...

Shanahan sheds some (vague) light on why 49ers went with Mullens

Shanahan sheds some (vague) light on why 49ers went with Mullens

Not much to take from this, but this will be as good of an explanation as any. The 49ers head coach is still complementary of C.J. Beathard AKA that quarterback he just benched a second time. The San Francisco 49ers are heading into a bye week and that means the media appearances are in full force. George Kittle joined a couple radio shows/podcasts and Kyle Shanahan came onto KNBR’s Murph and Mac show to talk about what he’s up to with the week off. It goes without saying that the decision to roll with Nick Mullens after five games of C.J. Beathard had to come up. Shanahan still...

49ers remind Brian Baldinger of the Keystone Cops

49ers remind Brian Baldinger of the Keystone Cops

Calling the 49ers the Keystone Cops sounds accurate. Brian Baldinger’s Baldy Breakdowns are quickly becoming a Twitter favorite and when he breaks down the 49ers, it’s always three minutes of your life well spent. Earlier in the year he was gushing all over Jimmy Garoppolo, but as the 49ers season has turned into a nightmare, he’s grown more critical of the team. The breakdown of the 49ers loss to the New York Giants may become my favorite since he actually comes right out and compares the 49ers to the Keystone Cops. For those of you unfamiliar, they are very old comedic silent...

Nick Mullens is yet to be sacked.

Nick Mullens is yet to be sacked.

A goose egg to be proud of. With all the depressing stories of the 49ers losing games at the last minute, there’s one statistic that’s taken a huge bump during Nick Mullens’ two starts. The sack total. Or lack thereof. The 49ers have had none for two straight games. Mullens has none for his professional career. Yes, it seems very strange to write this. The 49ers offensive line has been steadily getting better as the season has gone on, unfortunately C.J. Beathard held the ball far too long for anybody’s liking and would take a brutal 18 sacks through his five starts as a result....

Golden Nuggets: It’s a bye

Golden Nuggets: It’s a bye

Your San Francisco 49ers links for Saturday, November 17th 2018 I didn’t think the bye could come soon enough. This has been a (yet another) season from Hell, and all I want is the 53-man roster back. Kyle Shanahan says they should have everyone back, sans the IR players (Garoppolo, McKinnon, etc.) but it’s not like they have the whole roster back, we have to wait for OTAs. Oh well, the bye came at a good time. What’s everyone up to this weekend? You guys watching football or doing something else? Me? I got two books, Now for the Disappointing Part and Before they are Hanged, to...
Frank Gore and Joe Staley: You’re MY favorite player in the world

Frank Gore and Joe Staley: You’re MY favorite player in the world

This is the best! Last Sunday, Frank Gore set an NFL record when he became the first player to rush for at least 500 yards in each of 14 consecutive seasons. A couple days later, his former head coach Jim Harbaugh offered congratulations and called Gore his favorite player he has ever coached. The compliments have been rolling in, and on Wednesday, Gore’s former teammate Joe Staley called him his favorite player in the history of the world. You’re my favorite player in history of the world. https://t.co/HMT4Lebtxa— Joe Staley (@jstaley74) November 15, 2018 Gore offered a similar...
