Raheem Mostert expecting The Faithful to create ‘a neutral site’ for 49ers-Saints

Dec 4, 2019 at 7:20 AM--

San Francisco 49ers running back Raheem Mostert is coming off a career game with 19 carries for 146 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Many believe maybe he should have finished with at least one more carry in the game, but that is a conversation for another time.

Mostert joined 95.7 The Game on Tuesday and said the 49ers spent Monday reviewing the game film while trying to identify areas upon which to improve. He was asked if this most recent loss lingered a little longer than most.

"It doesn't necessarily linger on," Mostert told Damon Bruce, Ray Ratto, and Matt Kolsky. "It's just we've got to get over it and move on because our opponent is the Saints, and we know what we have to do with them."

Sunday's game will be Mostert's first at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The matchup is significant for both teams as the 49ers try to reclaim the NFC West lead from the Seattle Seahawks, who, like New Orleans and San Francisco, are now 10-2.

The Saints are looking to maintain their top spot in the NFC playoff standings.

Mostert isn't expecting as hostile an environment as most are anticipating. Members of The Faithful have traveled well this season, and the team has noticed. They have frequently turned opposing stadiums into what felt like home fields for the visiting 49ers this year.

"I have not played a game in the Voodoo Dome," Mostert said, "and I have heard multiple stories about how crazy the fans are in there, and the atmosphere, and all that. How I see it is it's going to be a neutral site because I know our fans are going to show up because every game we've gone to, so far, has really felt like a home game, especially for these away games. Even in Baltimore, we had a lot of fans cheering for us.

"We're going to see how it goes this week when we play the Saints, but, like I said, it's going to be a nice atmosphere, and I heard nothing but great, crazy things about it."

Another loss could be devastating for San Francisco, especially if Seattle continues to eke out wins. That Week 17 matchup between the two teams could turn out to be huge for the NFC playoff picture.

No one is looking that far ahead, though. For now, the 49ers remain focused on each week's task in front of them and will let the playoff picture figure itself out.

"You can't really do the playoff math right now," Mostert explained. "We've still got a lot of ball left, how we see it, and we're just going to take each week one at a time, and get ready for that opponent for that week.

"I'm not too sure if guys do talk about it. I know that we're not too worried about it. We're just trying to play ball and try to get some wins the best way we can, and have our [best foot forward] every time."

Hugh "The King" McElhenny Was a 49ers Franchise Savior

The San Francisco 49ers were one of three teams from the old All-American Football Conference to join the NFL in 1950. The others were the Cleveland Browns and Baltimore Colts. When the schedule was announced, some NFL owners balked about playing in San Francisco because, they claimed, the cost of traveling to the West Coast was too high and that the 49ers' ticket prices were too low. The 49ers charged $3.60 for seats between the 30- and 50-yard line, $2.40 for other reserved seats, $1.80 for general admission, and 50 cents for children under twelve at Kezar Stadium. So then, team owner Tony Morabito hiked the tariff to $3.75, $3, and $2, maintaining 50 cents for youngsters. Still, the 49er prices were the lowest in the league.

Can 49ers Trey Lance Be The First Rookie To Win A Super Bowl As Starting Quarterback?

As hard as it is to believe, no rookie has ever won the Super Bowl as a starting quarterback. You would think that after 55 years of Super Bowls, at least one rookie quarterback would have hoisted the Lombardi Trophy following his team's victory. But it has not happened. In fact, no rookie quarterback has even led his team to the game. None. In 55 years! A few have come close. Only three have led their teams as far as the conference championship game. In 2004, Ben Roethlisberger led the Pittsburgh Steelers to the AFC Championship Game. Mark Sanchez took the New York Jets to the AFC Championship

For The Record - 49ers CB Deommodore Lenoir

My apologies for the delay on my end for the two-week hiatus--life comes at you fast! I plan on finishing off the "For The Record" series with the remaining players along with a full evaluation of the 49ers' draft class with consideration to the recent training camp injuries (safety Tarvarius Moore, offensive lineman Justin Skule). While NFL Draft pundits and fans alike can give instant reactions to their team's player selections, it's easy to forget that the true value of the picks cannot be fully assessed until after a couple of seasons. Some players become instant starters (Nick Bosa), while others remain works in progress (Javon Kinlaw). Having said that, I want to pull out the receipts on what draft analysts were saying prior to the draft, along with their

Josh Rosen among five bubble players fighting to earn spot on 49ers roster

With a new NFL season around the corner, coaching staffs are starting to get a feel for the teams they will be marching into battle with. The San Francisco 49ers have spent the last few months solidifying their roster from top to bottom. With many key players returning from injury, the 49ers have a strong group, with most of the starting positions locked up. There will be several depth positions available for grabs. After a disastrous 2020 season, the 49ers learned that quality depth at all position groups is critical. Here are a few players who find themselves on the roster bubble and will all need to stand out in training camp if they want to earn a roster spot. Josh Rosen, QB
