49ers maintain No. 2 spot in draft order following 11th straight loss

The good news from the San Francisco 49ers' loss to the Chicago Bears on Sunday – their 11th straight – is that the team maintains its projected draft spot. The 49ers remain at the number two selection in the 2017 NFL Draft order. Had they lost in Chicago, the 49ers would have fallen to the number three spot and the Bears would have taken over the number two spot. Thanks to the Chicago victory, the Bears do not budge from last weekend's number four placement.

It's starting to look very likely that the 49ers' lone Week 1 victory might be their only win of the season. That means that the winless Cleveland Browns, who enjoyed their bye this week, would need to finally win a game this season for the 49ers to take over that top spot.

The Browns still have to play the Cincinnati Bengals, Buffalo Bills, San Diego Chargers, and Pittsburgh Steelers. The 49ers still have the New York Jets, Atlanta Falcons, Los Angeles Rams, and Seattle Seahawks on their schedule.

Below is the current draft order, based on playoff seeding (21-32), record, and strength of schedule (SOS), for all 32 first-round spots if the season ended today. Of course, the order of playoff teams would eventually be determined by the completed playoff picture.

Monday night's game between the Indianapolis Colts and New York Jets has not yet been factored into the table below.

Cam Newton: 49ers' Super Bowl loss due to 'bad coaching'

By David Bonilla
Feb 19

While former NFL quarterback Cam Newton hasn't wavered in his opinions surrounding San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brock Purdy, who he said played "good enough" for the Bay Area team to beat the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl 58, he is directing blame for the loss elsewhere. "Field goal versus touchdown, that's not Brock Purdy," Newton said on his "4th and 1" podcast. "Why the [expletive] did they receive the ball first? It was Tony Romo who mentioned this—when you know what you have to get, now you have four downs to get it, not three." Newton added, "The 49ers, they were just trying to get points. And that is not Brock Purdy's fault. That's bad coaching. There was too many people who was exposed. They didn't know the real rules of

Cutting Through the Noise After the 49ers' Super Bowl Loss

By John Porter
Feb 20

Since the last pass of Super Bowl LVIII (I couldn't even tell you what happened in the aftermath, nor who caught the pass, I turned off as soon as the ball hit his hands), I've surprised myself. One would anticipate that I may have gone through the seven stages usually associated with grief, particularly since it was the third heart-shattering Super Bowl loss of my fandom (I'm a UK Niner who has, in some way, managed to watch, at times excruciatingly, every down of every season since 2005). Alas, no. I'm not even stuck in denial. It happened, we lost, but for once, I accepted it. I had my moments of despair, but overall, I was quite looking forward to a long break from the game, a chance to breathe, reset, and hopefully come back next year. Then, the crushing avalanche of
