San Francisco 49ers: Stacking up the running backs against the NFC West

The San Francisco 49ers made some big changes to their running game this offseason – but, where does that leave them against their division foes? San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan obviously has certain philosophies and ways he likes doing things. And, as he enters his second season at the helm, we’re starting to […] San Francisco 49ers: Stacking up the running backs against the NFC West - Golden Gate Sports - Golden Gate Sports - A Bay Area Sports Site
Early 49ers-Vikings money is on Minnesota

Early 49ers-Vikings money is on Minnesota

Kirk Cousins is an upgrade, and the betting public probably likes that. The San Francisco 49ers open the 2018 regular season as a road underdog against the Minnesota Vikings. The 49ers opened as a 4.5 point underdog, not exactly a surprise given the Vikings strong 2017 season that came up just short of the Super Bowl. Oh, and they signed Kirk Cousins this offseason to replace Case Keenum. Cousins has his share of question marks, but that is an upgrade at the most important position on the field. It is no surprise then that offseason money is coming in on the Vikings. Oddsmaker William Hill...

Robbie Gould says biggest 49ers fanbase is in Seattle

Robbie Gould says biggest 49ers fanbase is in Seattle

On a recent KNBR appearance, the 49ers kicker had some words for the Seattle faithful. The San Francisco 49ers’ fanbase isn’t just contained to the Bay Area. Thanks to past successes, several deciding to move outside of California, as well as the allure of the NFL, you can find fans anywhere. I myself grew up in Boise, Idaho and became a fan thanks to Joe Montana being all over the place in the 80s and stuck around even when the hard times began. I definitely got even more into it when I moved to Seattle as I simply got tired of hearing about the Seattle Seahawks in the casino I worked...

90-in-90: OT Mike McGlinchey

90-in-90: OT Mike McGlinchey

Breaking down the 90 players on the 49ers offseason roster in 90 posts (over 90 or so days). Today is OT Mike McGlinchey. One of the biggest issues with the 2017 San Francisco 49ers offense was the performance of their offensive line. In fact, the unit has been in a downward spiral since the conclusion of the 2013 season, when dependable, if not unspectacular, center Jonathan Goodwin was technically the weakest link on the line. Since then, a revolving door of poor draft selections, poor free agent signings, and poor trades have left the unit as a whole scrambling just to scrape the bottom...
