David Carr predicts 49ers will start season 0-4

Jun 28, 2018 at 10:34 AM--

NFL Network's David Carr and Michael Robinson went through an exercise to predict the San Francisco 49ers' record and determine if they have a chance to make the playoffs. Carr went through the team's schedule and made predictions for the first half of the regular season while Robinson took on the second half.

What makes this prediction interesting? Carr doesn't have the 49ers' hot streak to end last season continuing into 2018. Much to Robinson's surprise, Carr has San Francisco losing their first four games of the season.

Asked Robinson: "So Jimmy G goes 5-0, gets $100 million, then goes out and goes 0-4?"

Carr believes the 49ers face four tough opponents to start the 2018 season. He has the team recovering from the 0-4 start by winning their next four games and ending up .500 before it is Robinson's turn predicting game results.

Robinson goes on to have the 49ers winning five of their final eight games and finishing 9-7 but points out that the last game of the season, against the Rams, could go either way with 10-6 being a possibility.

You can watch the breakdown below.

Below is how the 49ers' season ended up with Carr and Robinson predicting the results.

Steve Wilks wasn't a 49ers scapegoat, just a poor fit from the start

By David Bonilla
Feb 15

Steve Wilks' defense held Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs offense to three points well into the third quarter of Super Bowl 58. After the gut-wrenching defeat, as some fans clamored for the San Francisco 49ers to move on from Wilks, most believed the defensive coordinator would return in 2024 after he failed to land a vacant head coaching job elsewhere. Despite Wilks' defense allowing the third-fewest points this past season, behind only the Baltimore Ravens and Kansas City Chiefs, many felt the unit underachieved. The team produced 48 sacks, tying for the seventh-most in the league. DeMeco Ryans' defenses never surpassed that mark but matched it in 2021. However, Ryans' 2022 defense was the top-ranked unit in the league. Under Wilks, Ryans' successor, the defense

Kyle Shanahan expects Steve Wilks, other coaches to be back with 49ers next season

By Kirk Larrabee

Whether or not the weeks ahead bring any further fluctuation to the San Francisco 49ers' coaching staff remains to be seen, but as of Tuesday, head coach Kyle Shanahan carried the belief that his remaining coaches would be back with the team next season. That includes defensive coordinator Steve Wilks, who had some ups-and-downs in his first season with the team and went through interviews in January for the then-vacant head coaching positions of the Los Angeles Chargers and Atlanta Falcons. The 49ers saw passing game coordinator Klint Kubiak depart in recent days to become the offensive coordinator of the New Orleans Saints, but it doesn't seem like any other departures are imminent. Shanahan was asked during his season-ending press conference Tuesday with

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch held their end-of-season press conference on Tuesday, two days after the team's Super Bowl LVIII defeat. Here is everything they had to say. Transcript provided by the San Francisco 49ers Communications staff. What has the last 48 hours been like for you guys? JL: "It's been tough. It's gut wrenching. I think most of all, watching our players hurt, watching our coaches hurt, our staff, everybody who pours so much into this, our families. People forget the sacrifice that families make in an effort to go compete at the highest level. And it's exactly what we had an opportunity to do. That's exactly the stage that we put ourselves on.
