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

2019 49ers vs. 2021 49ers, Part 1 (Offense)

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.

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Yesterday, we took a look at the 2021 San Francisco 49ers offense to see how it compares to the team's offense from 2019. Some have said this year's team will be better than the 2019 team, while others have suggested that won't be the case. In our very scientific investigation, we determined the 2021 offense will be better than the 2019 offense. Today, we will take a look at the defenses.

CB K'Waun Williams labeled as 49ers' secret weapon by Bleacher Report

K'Waun Williams is one of the best nickel cornerbacks in the NFL and a vital component of the San Francisco 49ers defense. There was some concern that he might be among several players slated to depart for other teams this offseason. However, Williams was re-signed to a one-year deal and, for the most part, San Francisco's brain trust managed to keep the team mostly intact. When healthy, Williams has proved his value. He showed that in 2019 during one of his best campaigns, posting an 80.3 overall Pro Football Focus grade during his over 700 snaps in the regular season. During the ensuring playoff run, Williams allowed just 66 receiving yards in three playoff games. Recently, Bleacher Report compiled a list of every NFL team's "secret weapon", where
