49ers 2017 schedule coming on Thursday?

Apr 15, 2017 at 7:11 AM--


Get your planners ready. The NFL released its 2017 preseason schedule on Monday but what fans are really waiting for is the regular season schedule, which may be coming on Thursday, April 20.

The regular season schedule is always released prior to the NFL Draft. While the NFL has not yet officially announced a release date, Detroit Lions president Rod Wood may have let the date slip while debuting his team's new uniforms this week.

Wood was asked what's next on his agenda. "I don't have anything else other than getting this renovation done," he said. "That's the thing I got to focus on getting done before the season starts. The schedule coming out next Thursday will be a focus, too."

If Thursday is the official release date, it would come just one week prior to the start of the draft, which kicks off on April 27 in Philadelphia.

Last year, the NFL schedule also dropped on a Thursday while the year before, it was announced on a Tuesday. Each year, it debuts with a special on NFL Network which breaks down the games for each team.

The 49ers will be kicking off their third straight season with a new coaching staff. Kyle Shanahan was hired a day following the Super Bowl while general manager John Lynch took over the front office on January 29.

Below is a list of the 49ers' 2017 opponents, which has been known since December.

Home: Cowboys, Giants, Jaguars, Titans, Panthers, Cardinals, Rams, Seahawks

Away: Eagles, Redskins, Texans, Colts, Bears, Cardinals, Rams, Seahawks

How Kyle Shanahan's Seven-Man Protections Work in the 49ers' Offense

By Bret Rumbeck
Jul 2, 2020

The seven-man pass protection in today's NFL seems a little foreign, considering how much the tight end position has evolved over the last 20 years. Today's hybrid tight end, a man built from DNA spliced from a sprinter, basketball player and professional wrestler, has an integral role in the passing attack. A generation ago, San Francisco 49ers tight end Brent Jones finished his career averaging 36.3 receiving yards per game. Flash twenty-five years in the future and tight end George Kittle is averaging 65.4 yards per game over his first three seasons. Head coach Kyle Shanahan's system is firmly rooted in the West Coast Offense, even mimicking some of Bill Walsh's old

Featured 49ers Fan: Podcaster/Writer Levin T. Black Says Garoppolo Critics "Aren't True Journalists...They're Shock Jocks"

Levin T. Black is an unsung podcast hero. Carefully striking a balance between obsessed analytics nerd and the wise elder statesman at the bar. His insights, humor, and wit are one-third of the very best 49ers podcast out there — the 49ers Webzone "No Huddle Podcast" (available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, and Google PlayMusic). I don't say this because I write for the Webzone myself. Long before I volunteered to write here, I would search for a good 49ers podcasts to listen to. It would take quite some time before I found the No Huddle Podcast. At that time, Levin T. Black was yet to join the crew, but it didn't take long to get hooked by host Zain Naqvi's commentary on the best franchise in sports. When Levin T. Black joined the

49ers: Dre Greenlaw's Uprising from Childhood Adversity

By Christian Fernandes
Jul 8, 2020

LB Dre Greenlaw is currently known as the hero who capped off the NFL's 100th year by stopping Seahawks TE Jacob Hollister at the goal line, crowning the San Francisco 49ers as NFC West champions. It's easy to root for any player who puts the team in the win column, but it's what he's overcome off the field that's made him a player who is impossible not to love. Growing up, Dre didn't really have stability. His mother never held a stable job, and his father was not very involved in the family. He initially lived with his two parents, along with all eleven of his siblings. However, his parents eventually separated, consequently splitting up all of Dre's siblings as well. The father took care of five siblings while the mother took care of seven children, including Dre. This
