Peter Schrager would serve the San Francisco 49ers well as a promoter. He has been high on the team for the past two offseasons.

Schrager on Thursday debated his Good Morning Football co-host Nate Burleson on which Bay Area team will have a better shot at a bounce-back season — the 49ers or the Oakland Raiders. Burleson argued for the Jon Gruden-led team while Schrager made his case for the Kyle Shanahan-led squad.

Good Morning Football also asked which NFL team (not just between the Raiders and 49ers) will have the most entertaining offense in 2019. Schrager again went with San Francisco.

What were the reasons behind Schrager's selection? For one, the 49ers have Shanahan, who he considers to be one of the best offensive minds in football.

San Francisco is also expected to be healthier in 2019 and will get back quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and running back Jerick McKinnon. The offense was without both for most of last season (all of last season in the case of McKinnon).

Schrager also likes the offensive weapons the 49ers added via the draft in wide receivers Deebo Samuel and Jalen Hurd. They will join an offense that already has Pro Bowl tight end George Kittle and second-year receiver Dante Pettis.

"The guys are there," Schrager continued. "The offensive line is really good. I think he's never had in his two seasons with the Niners, Kyle Shanahan hasn't had healthy guys, and finally, they are. Let's hope they can stay that way.

"But I think a full offseason with Garoppolo and the playbook, all these additions on offense, I think Jerick McKinnon with Tevin Coleman and Matt Breida, I'm here for it. The weapons are finally there.

"Niners, offense, Kyle Shanahan. Put yourself in that (Sean) McVay conversation."

Entertaining would be an upgrade over 2018 when the 49ers offense ranked No. 21 in scoring.

Burleson, by the way, went with the Baltimore Ravens while Kay Adams went with the New Orleans Saints.

49ers Notebook: Nick Bosa lobbies for 49ers to keep Chase Young; Kyle Juszczyk addresses his future; Has anyone on the team watched the Super Bowl yet?

By Kirk Larrabee

The offseason is underway for the San Francisco 49ers, which means the team's decision makers will soon have to determine which free agents they would like to try to keep and which ones they'll have to let go. One of the more interesting cases is defensive end Chase Young, whom the 49ers added during the regular season from the Washington Commanders in exchange for a third-round draft pick. It may be hard for the 49ers to prevent Young from being more than a rent-a-player, but Young's friend and former Ohio State University teammate Nick Bosa made it clear Tuesday he'd like to see general manager John Lynch and the 49ers brass find a way to keep Young on the team. In this edition of the 49ers Notebook, we delve into a range of topics starting with Bosa's

Fred Warner and Dre Greenlaw are arguably the best linebacker duo in the NFL, serving as the heart of the San Francisco 49ers defense while sharing a strong bond. Therefore, it's no surprise that Warner felt deeply for his teammate and friend when Greenlaw suffered a torn Achilles in the second quarter of Super Bowl 58 against the Kansas City Chiefs. The following video captures Warner's raw emotional response after Greenlaw was carted off the field, revealing the profound anguish experienced by the star linebacker, even as teammate Nick Bosa attempted to console him. This hurts to watch so much. Via

Klint Kubiak commends Kyle Shanahan after departing 49ers for Saints

By David Bonilla
Feb 15

Klint Kubiak is among several assistant coaches departing the San Francisco 49ers for opportunities elsewhere. He will serve as the New Orleans Saints' offensive coordinator after his stint as the 49ers' offensive passing game specialist. Kubiak only spent one season with the 49ers. Of course, it's unsurprising to see the considerable interest in head coach Kyle Shanahan's coaching staff, given the success many of his proteges have found across the league. Upon his departure, Kubiak had nothing but praise for his time working under Shanahan. "Just being here a year, my experience is, Kyle really lets you into his brain in his game plan meetings," Kubiak
