The Kyle Shanahan Era started with a win, albeit in Week 1 of the preseason. The 49ers fell behind early, giving up an opening drive touchdown to the Alex Smith-led Chiefs. The starters on offense only played halfway through the first quarter, with quarterback Brian Hoyer going 1-4 for three yards and running back Carlos Hyde having two carries for 0 yards.

The 49ers battled back from an early deficit to make it 9-7 at half, with three field goals. They had two touchdowns called back because of penalties in an overall sloppy game (17 penalties for 131 yards). The Chiefs briefly took the lead 17-9 in the third quarter, but the 49ers scored 18 unanswered points to pull off the 27-17 win.

The battle for backup quarterback was in full swing. Matt Barkley was the backup tonight and completed 10 of 17 passes for 168 yards, including a long pass to wideout Aldrick Robinson that set up one of the Niners' four field goals. C.J. Beathard performed admirably, completing 7 of 11 passes for 101 yards and two touchdowns.

Rookie Solomon Thomas played almost the entire game, due to an injury to fellow defensive lineman Ronald Blair. Thomas played with high energy all night, making a couple tackles in the backfield for losses and delivering a big hit on the sideline. Aaron Lynch had two sacks and looked quicker and much more effective than in the past.

The other first-round rookie, Reuben Foster, nearly had an interception in the first quarter. He started the game next to NaVorro Bowman with the first team defense. Foster also had two tackles in limited action but was moving well sideline to sideline.

Rashard Robinson gave up a big play to Tyreek Hill on the game's first play, but came back on the next drive to grab an interception and return it deep into Kansas City territory.

On the offensive side of the ball, the running backs took center stage with rookie Joe Williams showing strong burst and quickness on his way to rushing for 60 yards on seven carries. Raheem Mostert iced the game in the fourth quarter with 89 yards on 15 carries total.

Rookie wide receiver Trent Taylor had a 30-yard punt return near the end of the game and hauled in a diving catch over the middle of the field to keep the second-to-last drive going.

The next game is next Saturday at Levi's Stadium against the Denver Broncos. (7PM Pacific).

NFL cancels Weeks 1 and 4 of preseason, eliminating Broncos, Chargers from 49ers' schedule

By David Bonilla
Jul 1, 2020

The NFL is canceling Weeks 1 and 4 of the preseason, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. The league is reportedly expected to announce the decision on Thursday. "The move was driven by two primary factors," writes Florio. "First, teams who will be playing preseason games on the road won't want to move that many people. Second, given that no teams had on-field practice sessions in the offseason, coaches would rather have the extra time to work with their teams, and that will happen if they don't have to worry about two extra preseason games." For the 49ers, this will mean the elimination of the team's August 15 road game against the Denver

Could the 49ers Move Richard Sherman From Cornerback to Safety?

By Gilbert Brink
Jun 22, 2020

Richard Sherman was one of the most hated opponents in 49ers history. Currently, Richard Sherman is one of the most beloved members of the 49ers roster. So much has changed since the loudmouth, superstar cornerback took a dinner meeting with Kyle Shanahan a little over two years ago. Back then, the 49ers were coming off of a 6-10 season, ending the year with a 5-game winning streak led by newly acquired QB Jimmy Garoppolo. Expectations were high, the 49ers were a media darling and Jimmy Garoppolo was heralded as the next great QB. The addition of Richard Sherman shocked the football world and set the bar even higher for the once great franchise. Two years later, the 49ers are coming off of a heartbreaking Super Bowl loss. Although he faltered in the final moments of Super

5 49ers Who Could Be Traded Before the 2020 Regular Season

By Nick Newman
Jun 23, 2020

For the first time since the Jim Harbaugh era, the 49ers roster is loaded with talent. Come September 5th, all NFL teams will have to reduce their roster sizes from 90 to 53 players. The 49ers will inevitably have to move on from an abundance of quality players, many of whom are more than capable of making an impact on an NFL roster. With that being said, low-end teams will be flocking to the waiver wire to see which players weren't quite good enough to make this stacked San Francisco team. The 49ers would be wise to find trade partners for these five players, as opposed to cutting them outright: #1) C.J. Beathard - Quarterback: C.J. Beathard is not a quarterback who has a lot of value. If Beathard were to be traded, I'd expect
