49ers’ Tarvarius Moore confident he can beat Marquise Goodwin in a race

Aug 19, 2019 at 1:41 PM--

Wide receiver Marquise Goodwin is often touted as the fastest player on the San Francisco 49ers roster, maybe in the NFL. He is, after all, a former Olympian (maybe soon to be again) and recently won the "40 Yards of Gold" competition against other speedy NFL receivers.

One teammate believes he could beat Goodwin in a race. 49ers play-by-play announcer, Greg Papa, on Sunday asked safety Tarvarius Moore who would win in a race between Goodwin and himself.

"Me, definitely," Moore said without hesitation. "I'm calling it me."

Papa asked the second-year player if that could be set up with defensive coordinator Robert Saleh.

"Set it up," Moore responded. "Let's set it up. I'm all for it."

Would Moore want to put the million-dollar cash prize Goodwin earned from the "40 Yards of Gold" competition (but maybe has not received) on the line? The safety wasn't too willing to do that just yet.

"We might have to wait," Moore said. "I don't know about the one mil just yet. I need to get a mil first so I can set it up, but we definitely can set it up. I'm all for it."

The start of the 2020 NFL season has not been kind to the San Francisco 49ers. During the first half of the Week 1 game against the Arizona Cardinals, tight end George Kittle suffered a sprained knee and went into the locker room early. He finished the game but had no catches in the second half. On September 16, 2020, the 49ers kept him out of practice and noted he would likely not practice on Thursday or Friday. Shortly after the Kittle news, the team announced that cornerback Richard Sherman would miss three

The San Francisco 49ers surprised reporters by bringing in tight end George Kittle to speak via Zoom on Thursday. Fans shouldn't take Kittle's availability to the media as a clue that he will play on Sunday against the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium, though. In case anyone from the New York Giants is reading this — maybe he will, maybe he won't. "I just missed you guys," Kittle said. "They said I could talk to you guys. I haven't talked to you guys in a week. I just really missed all your faces and voices." Kittle is recovering from a sprained MCL and bone bruise, according to multiple reports. He missed this past Sunday's game against the

Fred Warner feels 49ers can overcome injuries while Trent Williams calls loss of Nick Bosa 'heartbreaking'

The San Francisco 49ers leave MetLife Stadium on Sunday with a costly 31-13 victory over the New York Jets. Very costly. The team watched as quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (high-ankle sprain), and defensive linemen Nick Bosa (likely an ACL injury) and Solomon Thomas (knee) left the game with injuries. They did not return. Running backs Raheem Mostert and Tevin Coleman also suffered knee injuries, according to head coach Kyle Shanahan. That is quite a price to pay for the win. Linebacker Fred Warner felt for his teammates but believes the 49ers have the depth to overcome the injuries, if necessary. "I think this team's built for that," Warner said after the game. "You mention how we've got a lot of depth, and over the years,
