Which NFL team would you root for if it wasn’t the 49ers?

Which NFL team would you root for if it wasn’t the 49ers?

Photo by Scott Taetsch/ Today’s question of the day Is it possible to have a second favorite team? That’s a touchy subject. There’s this fictional loyalty in sports where fans act like you can only root for one team. I’m not saying you should root for the Yankees and Red Sox, but is it such a crime to be a fan of two teams in different conferences in a league with 32 teams? As someone who finds it easier to root for players, I wouldn’t judge you for being a fan of the 49ers and the Dolphins. Everyone’s circumstances are different. This brings us to today’s...

Golden Nuggets: Officially in the same month as training camp

Your daily San Francisco 49ers news for Friday, July 1st, 2022 49ers offseason roster: DE group the deepest of Shanahan era “The Niners appear set to eventually bid farewell to Dee Ford and end his injury-plagued tenure with the team. However, following the additions they made this offseason and with Arik Armstead able to play off the edge as well as on the interior, the Niners’ group of outside pass rushers might be the deepest they have had under Lynch and Shanahan.” Health could remain a hangup in potential Jimmy Garoppolo trade “He’s right around four months...

The Shanaplan: Did the 49ers wait too long to pay Deebo Samuel?

Photo by Wesley Hitt/ They negotiate on their terms July is a slow month for NFL news as teams prepare for camp toward the end of the month. Of course, no month is slow for the 49ers. In July, they’ll need to decide whether to trade or release Jimmy Garoppolo. San Francisco is also expected to give wide receiver Deebo Samuel a lucrative deal. During today’s episode of The Shanaplan, we discussed whether the Niners waited too long to pay Deebo. George Kittle was on a podcast last week discussing Samuel in-depth and said this: “I haven’t talked to John Lynch,...

What is your favorite regular-season game in 49ers history?

Photo by Al Pereira/Michael Ochs Archives/ Today’s question of the day If we asked you to pick your favorite game in 49ers history, you’re picking one of their Super Bowl victories. Instead, let’s eliminate the playoffs and focus on the regular season today. So what’s your favorite 49ers regular-season game of all time? Naturally, nostalgia will be tied into your answer. The “Pick at the Stick” should lead the charge for this generation. The game took place on a Monday night, so everyone remembers it. NaVorro Bowman intercepted Matt Ryan and sealed the game...

NN Roundtable: What’s one way Trey Lance will be an upgrade over Jimmy Garoppolo?

Photo by Michael Zagaris/San Francisco 49ers/ Projecting what the second-year quarterback can bring to the table that the previous QB couldn’t The comparisons between Trey Lance and Jimmy Garoppolo will be unfair, exhausting, and inevitable this upcoming season. So today, we wanted to focus on what Lance brings to the table that Garoppolo didn’t during his time in the Bay Area. Here are our answers. Rob’s Take: Press Conferences There are plenty of physical differences that we’ll see on the field, but I’ll let others address those. I’ve talked about this...

Golden Nuggets: What would “leaps and bounds” of growth look like to you?

Your daily San Francisco 49ers news for Thursday, June 30th, 2022 Schrager: Lance has grown ‘leaps and bounds’ as leader for 49ers “Now we’re at the point where Jimmy needs to start throwing, he has not been with the team. For the most part, when he has been training, he’s been in southern California. Trey Lance has been with the team, Trey Lance has been leading practices, Trey Lance has been leading guys, Trey Lance has been throwing with wide receivers. I don’t think the train has left the station in terms of who are you going into battle with Week 1. Trey Lance...

Gold Standard: 3 Non-Trey Lance training camp storylines we’re looking forward to

Photo by Michael Zagaris/San Francisco 49ers/ We’ll talk Lance nonstop, so let’s focus on a few other topics As visions of training camp dance in our heads like presents for children on Christmas Eve, Levin Black and I took a look at the most interesting 49ers storylines we’re anxious to see - aside from Trey Lance. Here are a few from a special Wednesday edition of the Gold Standard podcast. How does the wide receiver position shake out? After his incredible season last year, we all agree that Deebo Samuel comes into training camp as the team’s WR1, but will it...

Matt Maiocco “can’t see” Jimmy G being a starting QB this season

Photo by Stacy Revere/ While one 49ers beat writer believes Jimmy Garoppolo is good enough to be a starting quarterback in the NFL, he doesn’t know how that happens this year. As the NFL preseason nears, speculation about San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo’s future continues. On Tuesday, NBC Sports Bay Area 49ers beat writer Matt Maiocco stopped by KNBR to talk Niners and was asked where he saw Garoppolo ending up this season. Despite Maiocco’s years of experience, even he seemed unsure of where the longtime 49ers starter would end up. Maiocco...

How Terry McLaurin's extension impacts Deebo Samuel

How Terry McLaurin's extension impacts Deebo Samuel

Matt Kartozian-USA TODAY Sports McLaurin became the 9th WR this offseason to make over $20 million annually On Tuesday, the Washington Commanders extended wide receiver Terry McLaurin on a three-year extension worth up to $71 million. McLaurin becomes the ninth receiver to get over $20 million annually this offseason. He won’t be the last, as the final two are in the NFC East. A deeper dive into McLaurin’s contract gives us a better idea of Samuel’s potential deal. ‘Touchdown Terry’ received $53.1 million guaranteed, with $34.6 million of that coming fully...

Do the 49ers already have a trade in place for Jimmy Garoppolo?

Photo by Christian Petersen/ Jason Aponte explores why he thinks so on today’s Oh, Hey There! podcast This week we got a report from Mike Giardi of NFL Media that Jimmy Garoppolo expects a “quick resolution” to his situation with the 49ers. On today’s Oh, Hey There! podcast, Jason Aponte wondered if a deal is already in place. “Maybe there’s a handshake, under-the-table deal already agreed to, something like that....It does line up with everything Kyle Shanahan’s been saying. I think that this does get done pretty quickly. The last hurdle is, ‘Can Jimmy...

49ers 90-in-90: The 49ers need a healthy Javon Kinlaw in 2022

Photo by Michael Zagaris/San Francisco 49ers/ Breaking down the 90 players on the 49ers offseason roster in 90 posts (over 90 or so days). Today is DT Javon Kinlaw Javon Kinlaw has started 16 games in two seasons and has three tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, and five quarterback hits. Kinlaw, drafted to replace DeForest Buckner for financial reasons, has hardly reminded fans of DeFo, who started 30 games with 20 tackles for loss, 44 quarterback hits, and 16.5 sacks in the same two-year span. The comparisons to Buckner will be evergreen, but it’s time for Kinlaw to make...

49ers DC DeMeco Ryans makes The Athletic’s ‘40 under 40’ list

Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/ Ryans had an outstanding first season Last year was quite the season for first-year defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans. Robert Saleh evolved and developed into head coaching material as the 49ers surrounded him with talent. But nobody knew what to expect from his predecessor. Ryans faced his fair share of challenges, from cornerbacks in and out of the lineup to having to bail an offense that struggled down the stretch. Nevertheless, he helped the 49ers' defense finish fourth in defensive success rate and seventh in EPA per play allowed...

PFF ranks the 49ers secondary 16th heading into the 2022 season

Photo by Michael Zagaris/San Francisco 49ers/ So, average. The 49ers will have to prove their secondary is up to par in 2022. Although a dropped interception is all anybody mentions about last year’s NFC Championship, the secondary had a long afternoon. Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford threw for 337 yards, a pair of touchdowns, and a 57% success rate, with 41% of his 45 attempts resulting in first downs. For reference, Stafford’s total EPA was 16.5 for the game compared to Jimmy Garoppolo’s was 6.2. Throughout the season, the 49ers secondary outperformed...

Only two teams could even absorb Garoppolo’s contract without making other moves, and neither the Browns nor the Panthers would take the 49ers QB’s salary as is. Carolina is not planning to trade for Garoppolo. ESPN names Jauan Jennings as 49ers’ surprise offseason standout “That momentum has carried...
