Michael Moore wears a 49ers hat during Women’s March on Washington

Jan 21, 2017 at 1:44 PM--


Filmmaker Michael Moore gave a speech at the Women's March on Washington saying, "we have to take over the Democratic Party." He did that while wearing a San Francisco 49ers hat.

Donald Trump's election as President of the United States has been very controversial, which is evident by the numerous marches of protest taking place across the country on Saturday.

In November, Moore showed up unannounced at Trump Tower in New York to arrange an interview with the then-President-elect. He was wearing a 49ers hat that day as well. Moore has been vocal about his support of quarterback Colin Kaepernick's protest of the national anthem and his wearing of a 49ers hat has been an apparent nod to that.

"Colin Kaepernick did the MOST American of things: Stand up - or sit down - for what u believe in," Moore tweeted out in August. Of course, as most NFL fans know by now, Kaepernick kneeled during pre-game national anthems this past season. It was his way to protest what he calls unjust actions by this country.

Kaepernick was not a fan of Trump or Hilary Clinton and spoke about the election back in November. "To me, it was embarrassing to watch that these are our two candidates," Kaepernick said. "Both are proven liars, and it almost seems like they're trying to debate who is less racist, and at this point, I was talking to one of my friends who goes, 'You have to pick the lesser of two evils, but in the end, it's still evil.'"

The feeling was mutual from Trump. "I think it's personally not a good thing," Trump said of Kaepernick's protest in August during a radio interview on Seattle's KIRO. "I think it's a terrible thing. And, you know, maybe he should find a country that works better for him. Let him try. It won't happen."

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Lately I have listened to some podcasts and read some tweets comparing the current San Francisco 49ers team (2021) to the 2019 team that fell just short of winning the Super Bowl. I find the comparison interesting. And since many people quickly assume the 2021 49ers are not as good as the 2019 team, I wanted to take a look for myself. So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler continues to look at position groups across the NFL and rank the best players within each. His latest effort was ranking the league's top offensive tackles. Fowler's list is based on input from around the NFL. He surveyed over 50 league executives, coaches, scouts, and players to compile it. "The objective is to identify the best players right now for 2021," wrote Fowler. "This is not a five-year projection or an achievement award. Who's the best today? Pretty simple." Last year, the San Francisco 49ers acquired Trent Williams from the Washington Football Team to



'What's with their coach?': 49ers' Jimmie Ward feels disrespected by Rams' Sean McVay

Does Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay think less of safety Jimmie Ward than he should? The San Francisco 49ers defender appears to believe so. In a conversation with Grant Cohn of Sports Illustrated, the soon-to-be 30-year-old safety feels like McVay unfairly targets him, thinking he can take advantage of the veteran defensive back. The safety and beat writer remembered a matchup in 2019 when McVay tested Ward's coverage skills with several offensive players, likely thinking he could take advantage of the defender. "What's with their coach? Does he have the big head or something like (that)?" Ward told Cohn during

Some fans seem to relish the idea of their favorite team entering a season as an underdog. If you are one of those fans and cheer for the San Francisco 49ers, you will love Tyler Sullivan's recent feature for CBS Sports. The writer named the Bay Area squad in his list of the NFL's most overrated teams ahead of the 2021 season. Yes, San Francisco earned just six wins last season. However, as almost anyone will tell you while defending the team, the roster endured a historic number of injuries in a bizarre 2020. In fact,
