Kyle Shanahan sticking with Brian Hoyer despite struggles, 0-4 record

Kyle Shanahan sticking with Brian Hoyer despite struggles, 0-4 record

Brian Hoyer is still the starting quarterback for the foreseeable future. C.J. Beathard will remain on the sidelines for the 49ers. San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan does not plan on making a quarterback change any time soon. Brian Hoyer has struggled this season, but the 49ers have also lost three of their four games by a combined eight points. Hoyer hasn’t wont them any games, but he hasn’t lost them, either. “He needs to play better,” Shanahan said, “and we need to play better around him.” The 49ers are winless, and Hoyer is sitting with a completion percentage of...

Reuben Foster not ruled out for Week 5, but still unlikely to play

Reuben Foster not ruled out for Week 5, but still unlikely to play

The 49ers didn’t rule out linebacker Reuben Foster for Week 5 vs. the Colts, but he’s still unlikely to play. San Francisco 49ers rookie linebacker Reuben Foster has not been ruled out for the team’s Week 5 game against the Indianapolis Colts, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan. Of course, it’s big news that Foster hasn’t been automatically ruled out, but it’s still unlikely that he plays. “I’d be surprised if he came back this week,” Shanahan said. “Not totally ruling him out but I’d be surprised.” Obviously, Foster playing would be a big surprise. I doubt he...
Should the 49ers have taken the sack and declined the holding penalty vs. the Cardinals?

Should the 49ers have taken the sack and declined the holding penalty vs. the Cardinals?

It didn’t matter in the end, but there’s always room for debate The San Francisco 49ers lost a tough one on Sunday, giving up a Larry Fitzgerald touchdown reception in the final minute overtime, losing 18-15. As with any last minute loss, there is plenty to pick apart from the final drive. The Cardinals set the game-winning touchdown up thanks to four straight passes of at least 11 yards, totaling 50 yards. They moved down to the 49ers 25-yard line with 1:10 left in overtime. On 1st and 10, Carson Palmer connected with Jaron Brown in the end zone, but the receiver barely missed getting...
DeForest Buckner earns Pro Football Focus game ball for dominant effort in Week 4

DeForest Buckner earns Pro Football Focus game ball for dominant effort in Week 4

The 49ers defensive tackle is tearing it up through four weeks. The San Francisco 49ers currently sit at 0-4, but over the course of four games, the defense has emerged as a serious threat. There is still inconsistency in the pass rush and among the cornerbacks, but we are seeing progress on that side of the ball. Second year defensive tackle DeForest Buckner is showing as much growth as anybody on the defensive side of the ball. He showed some solid signs last year, but we saw inconsistency due to technique issues and lack of experience. In 2017, he is starting to put it all together. On...
Kyle Shanahan caught errant Brian Hoyer pass, was not pleased

Kyle Shanahan caught errant Brian Hoyer pass, was not pleased

Juuuuuust a bit outside. San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brian Hoyer had a rough day on Sunday, completing 49 percent of his passes, and struggling to get much consistency going in the passing game. At times his receivers were dropping easily catchable passes. However, at times it felt like Hoyer could not hit the broad side of a barn. There might have been some bad routes run, but there were also some throws from Hoyer that were just off the mark. Here’s one such poor connection. Trent Taylor is the intended receiver, but he is too far down the field, with Hoyer dropping it in closer to...
Are toughess losses a sign of improving 49ers, bad NFC West, something else?

Are toughess losses a sign of improving 49ers, bad NFC West, something else?

Time to figure out what this team is about a quarter of the way into the season. The San Francisco 49ers dropped to 0-4 on Sunday, losing an 18-15 overtime heartbreaker to the Arizona Cardinals. The 49ers had a win within their grasp, taking a 15-12 lead with just over two minutes left in overtime. The defense, coming off four quarters of strong play, couldn’t hold up late, and Carson Palmer found Larry Fitzgerald for the game-winner. The 49ers were thumped 23-3 in their season-opener, but have rebounded to lose in close fashion the last three weeks. They lost 12-9 to the Seattle...
49ers snap count vs. Cardinals: Matt Breida, Victor Bolden see increased workloads due to injury

49ers snap count vs. Cardinals: Matt Breida, Victor Bolden see increased workloads due to injury

The 49ers sent out their rookies for a bit more work. The San Francisco 49ers wrapped up an overtime loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 4, and we saw some changes to the playing time rotation due to various injuries. You can check out the snap count down below, or read the game book PDF. Running back Matt Breida played a career high 26 snaps and had a career high ten touches on offense. He’s a rookie so career highs are not surprising, but it is notable. Carlos Hyde was listed as questionable with a hip injury. Kyle Shanahan said Hyde was hurting, so it was not surprising that the team...
49ers open as 2.5-point underdog to Indianapolis Colts, line coming down in a hurry

49ers open as 2.5-point underdog to Indianapolis Colts, line coming down in a hurry

The 49ers are headed on the road, but money seems to be coming in on them in the early going. The San Francisco 49ers will travel to face the Indianapolis Colts in Week 5, and the spread on this game opened at 2.5 points, according to our friends at Odds Shark. The line opened there, but is quickly seeing some change following the Colts 46-18 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. You can actually find the line down to a pick ‘em at a few sites. The 49ers have stumbled to an 0-4 start out of the gate, but they are currently 3-1 against the spread. They say good teams win and great teams cover. The...

NFC West standings: Rams increase lead in division as everyone but 49ers win

NFC West standings: Rams increase lead in division as everyone but 49ers win

The Rams continue to lead the NFC West after Week 4 action on Sunday. Another week down, and the Los Angeles Rams are still in possession of the NFC West. They’re 3-1 on the season, and the highest-scoring offense in the entire league. They have 142 points, and are average 35.5 points per game. They put up 35 points on the tough Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, and managed to score 40-plus points against both the San Francisco 49ers and Indianapolis Colts. I don’t know how long the Rams can keep this up, and will play both the Seattle Seahawks and Arizona Cardinals over the next three weeks....
Bears name Mitchell Trubisky starter for Week 5 vs. Vikings

Bears name Mitchell Trubisky starter for Week 5 vs. Vikings

Looks like he’ll be starting when the 49ers visit in Week 13. The Chicago Bears have decided the future is now. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the team is benching quarterback Mike Glennon and replacing him with first round pick Mitchell Trubisky. Denver radio host Benjamin Allbright was the first to report this was happening, late last week. The new is not entirely surprising. The Bears did upset Pittsburgh in Week 3, but the offense has been stumbling along. Glennon had a 300-yard game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, but any success the team has had has been in spite of...

49ers-Cardinals recap: Penalties once again control narrative for San Francisco

49ers-Cardinals recap: Penalties once again control narrative for San Francisco

Penalties, penalties and more penalties: the 2017-18 San Francisco 49ers. The San Francisco 49ers have a problem with penalties. That is to say, they have a problem with trying to not commit penalties. It’s been a consistent issue throughout four regular season games and four preseason games, too. Against the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, they committed 13 penalties for a loss of 113 yards. Kyle Shanahan is a young head coach in charge of a very young roster. I don’t personally think discipline is going to be a long-term issue for a coach like Shanahan, but right now, out of the gate,...

2018 NFL Draft order: Another winless team down in Week 4

2018 NFL Draft order: Another winless team down in Week 4

The Browns have the top pick, at least for now. But there are still four winless teams, including the 49ers. Another week and another loss for the San Francisco 49ers. It also meant a win for the Cincinnati Bengals, one of five remaining winless teams going into Sunday. They bested the Cleveland Browns who, like the 49ers, remain winless. The Browns also happen to hold the top spot for the 2018 NFL Draft, with an 0-4 record and a strength of schedule of .438. The 49ers, though, are right behind them, also at 0-4, with a strength of schedule of .625. Then there’s the New York Giants and...
Fantasy football, Week 5: Trent Taylor is an intriguing PPR waiver wire candidate

Fantasy football, Week 5: Trent Taylor is an intriguing PPR waiver wire candidate

The 49ers find themselves with a solid pass catcher developing. The San Francisco 49ers dropped to 0-4 on Sunday, but we are continuing to see wide receiver Trent Taylor emerge as a solid threat. He is not a guy who will put up 100 yards with any sort of regularity this season, but he is developing into a consistent enough threat that some fantasy football leagues could find value in him. If you play in a PPR league, there is a lot of depth at the wide receiver position. There are plenty of receivers who can load up on catches even when they are not getting many yards. Taylor could be...

49ers demonstration during Anthem presents call, unity following Jed York comments

The San Francisco 49ers faced the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday in their first game since hosting the Los Angeles Rams on Thursday Night Football. The layoff between games meant the 49ers were not on the field last Sunday when a lot of teams were conducting various demonstrations. Earlier this past week, John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan both said the players were getting together to come up with some kind of demonstration, but something that would involve the entire team. They came up with something that showed this unity, but also went further than what a lot of teams did. During the National...
