Big Wednesday for fate of the 49ers’ season

Oct 24, 2007 at 6:58 AM--


While Nancy Gay of the San Francisco Chronicle and Matt Maiocco of the Santa Rosa Press Democrat have reported 49ers running back Frank Gore insisting that he will be ready for the Saints come Sunday, we will know more about Alex Smith later today. Today will be the team's first practice in preparation for the Saints and the team will be able to better judge whether the quarterback, who was injured on September 30th against the Seahawks and has not played since, has healed enough to allow him to start a game.

Gore turned his right ankle in Sunday's game against the Giants. On Monday, he insisted that he was fine and will have no problem playing against the Saints.

The 49ers are 2-4, have lost four in a row, are sitting in third place in the NFC West and have three more games against division opponents.

49ers mailbag: Will 49ers sign a big-name QB? Who will Ryans take to Houston? Who will replace Ryans? Will Garoppolo return?

There's not much going on with the San Francisco 49ers. Not unless you count these small bits of news: Brock Purdy has a UCL tear and will likely need surgery. If they can repair the tendon, he'll need six months of recovery time (which is August). If they have to replace it (Tommy John surgery), it will be decidedly longer. Trey Lance says he is three to four weeks from being cleared to practice, and that he should be 100% by OTAs (organized team activities). Trent Williams was walking with a crutch on Tuesday (locker cleanout day) and had a walking boot on. But he said it's nothing. DeMeco Ryans was hired to be the next head coach of the Houston Texans. Tom Brady announced his retirement Wednesday morning, so those hoping he



The 49ers' 2022 Season Has Officially Been Ruled 'Out' - SF 7, Philadelphia 31

It wasn't supposed to end like this. But in the end, what did you expect? This is who the 49ers are. Not a bad team, no. God, no. If that's what you think after watching an NFFCG collapse, I humbly request you consider this game tomorrow. A week from now. With a bit of distance, tracing the arc of the whole season. That still doesn't change the fact that this game was ugly. It was horrific. No, it was worse - a farce. This was Kyle Shanahan trying to bluff an invading army with a tea party out in the open. There's no blame to be laid at his feet here. Maybe against another army, a team less consistently aggressive and outside of its home turf. It's just not a strategy that works against Nick Sirianni's Eagles. Playoff football is a game of



"Tough way to go out": 49ers reflect on brutal end to magical season

By David Bonilla

All things being equal, the San Francisco 49ers probably had a decent chance to compete against the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, possibly earning a return trip to the Super Bowl. All things didn't end up being equal, though. The Niners entered the NFC Championship Game with Brock Purdy at quarterback. Purdy entered the regular season as QB3. However, an ankle injury to Trey Lance in Week 2, and then a foot injury to Jimmy Garoppolo 11 weeks later, left the 49ers turning to Purdy, a relatively unknown rookie to casual NFL fans, to finish out the season. It turns out Purdy might have been exactly what the 49ers needed. First, he won that December 4 contest against the Miami Dolphins, replacing Garoppolo. Then he proceeded to win the seven starts that followed,



21 quick observations from the 49ers' 2022 season

By Marc Adams

After every game, I do a quick "observations" piece, listing the handful of things that jumped out to me in the game. Since there (sadly) was no game on Sunday to write about, I decided to give my observations from the season. Here are some things that jumped out to me: Four quarterbacks played. Four quarterbacks went down. Why are the 49ers cursed at the QB position? Who has the voodoo doll? I'm blaming Jim Tomsula. Another wasted season for Trey Lance. If he never becomes who we hope he'll become, Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch better hope they win a Super Bowl with someone else. So long, Jimmy Garoppolo. You served the 49ers well. But I'm still not sure how you stepped out of the back of the end zone in Denver. Brock Purdy is
