The 49ers would have beat the Giants if...

I can’t even... The elegant tank is alive and well. After the San Francisco 49ers made the Oakland Raiders look like a team Alabama could beat, they returned to their ways by blowing a lead and letting the New York Giants, who only had a single win before Monday night, win the game. It stings. It’s horrible. I said if the 49ers let Saquon Barkley and Odell Beckham Jr. wake up that they would feel the effects. I certainly wasn’t wrong. The Giants offense found a way to stay on the field play after play, allowing time for Eli Manning to forget he’s Eli Manning. The 49ers would have...

Ahkello Witherspoon draws criticism from Kyle Shanahan, Richard Sherman

Ahkello Witherspoon draws criticism from Kyle Shanahan, Richard Sherman

The 49ers’ second-year cornerback spoke with the media after Monday’s game, reacting to his battle with Odell Beckham Jr. and comments from Shanahan and Sherman. Cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon had the unenviable task of covering star receiver Odell Beckham Jr. on some of Monday night’s game-defining plays in the San Francisco 49ers’ 27-23 loss to the New York Giants. Late In the third-quarter, the Giants down 20-10, quarterback Eli Manning targeted Beckham along the sideline with Witherspoon in tow. The ball was just slightly overthrown, bouncing off the tip of the receivers’...

Rams may take the West, but they also took a hit

Rams may take the West, but they also took a hit

But their post-season hopes took a huge hit. I’ll just make sure we are all on the same page: The Los Angeles Rams are winning the NFC West. After their game Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks, it’s all but penciled in. If the Rams were to go on a losing streak for the rest of the season, it would go down as maybe the worst collapse in NFL history. Since the 49ers seem to not know how to finish a game if their lives depended on it, they remain in last place. Go read the recaps if you want to know the details. I’m too burnt out to really care at this point. Los Angeles Rams/Seattle...

Shanahan: Nick Mullens likely the starting QB after the bye

Shanahan: Nick Mullens likely the starting QB after the bye

The 49ers have a bye, but look for more attempts at Mullens Magic. In a stunning development, it turns out San Francisco 49ers quarterback Nick Mullens will not complete 72 percent of his passes and throw three touchdowns with no interceptions every week. A week after an astonishing debut against the Oakland Raiders, Mullens came back to earth a bit against the New York Giants. He completed 69 percent of his passes for 250 yards, with one touchdown and two interceptions. It was not a great performance, but it likely was enough to earn Mullens a third straight start — against the Tampa Bay...
