49ers’ Kyle Juszczyk disappointed All-Decade Team lacks a fullback

Apr 6, 2020 at 12:33 PM--


The NFL and Pro Football Hall of Fame released the NFL's All-Decade Team of the 2010s on Monday morning. Four San Francisco 49ers players, Joe Staley, Richard Sherman, Frank Gore, and Patrick Willis, made the roster.

One 49ers player is disappointed about a glaring omission, in his opinion. No, not the lack of a specific player, but a position.

Kyle Juszczyk, the 49ers' Pro Bowl fullback, was disheartened to see that his position was not represented within the All-Decade Team of the 2010s.

"I guess no fullbacks played this decade," Juszczyk tweeted out sarcastically in reply to Ian Rapport of NFL Network's announcement of the roster.


Juszczyk has proven to be a crucial component of the 49ers' potent rushing attack since joining the team in 2017. He is among the best at his position, and San Francisco's running backs have significantly benefitted from his blocking. The 49ers' rushing attack ranked No. 2 in the NFL in 2019, averaging 144.1 yards per game.

Juszczyk is a four-time Pro Bowl selection, including this past season.

Josh Hokit explains why playing fullback for the 49ers is different than the rest of the NFL

Josh Hokit played running back for the Fresno State Bulldogs, rushing for 1,260 yards and 17 touchdowns on 303 carries in his four collegiate seasons. He also hauled in 38 receptions for 260 yards, showing off some versatility. Hokit is learning to play fullback for the San Francisco 49ers after signing as an undrafted free agent last year. While the transition from running back to fullback for the 6-foot-1 and 225-pound player might not seem like too big of a stretch, the 49ers don't utilize typical fullbacks. Just look at Kyle Juszczyk, who is viewed as a versatile piece on head coach Kyle Shanahan's chessboard. He can run, catch, block, and do it all from multiple spots on the field. "There's many things about this fullback position,"



Michael Irvin once again backs 49ers legend Jerry Rice as the all-time greatest receiver

There was never any debate in the minds of San Francisco 49ers fans. Jerry Rice is the greatest wide receiver to ever step onto a football field. Randy Moss had a different opinion, which was enough for the former NFL receiver to grab some headlines and start some debate in December. During a conversation with Terrell Owens, Moss said he was the greatest, followed by Owens. Yes, Moss placed Rice at "third or fourth" on his personal ranking. Most laughed at the idea that Moss should be considered the best ever. One of the many who backed Rice for the title is another Hall of Fame receiver, Michael Irvin. Irvin did so again when asked about the greatest

The San Francisco 49ers don't practice this weekend. That frees up head coach Kyle Shanahan to do something different. Very different. According to Ted Ward of Bay Area News Group, Shanahan has been named the Grand Marshal of Sunday's Toyota/Save Mart 350 NASCAR Cup Series race at Sonoma Raceway and will be the one to announce the start of the race. "Shanahan joins other notable NFL personalities with quarterbacks Tua Tagovailoa (Homestead-Miami Speedway) and Derek Carr (Las Vegas Motor Speedway) having been NASCAR grand marshals this season," wrote Ward. You might not describe Shanahan as a NASCAR die-hard. This

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan is at the Sonoma Raceway today. He is the Grand Marshal of the Toyota/Save Mart 350 NASCAR Cup Series race and caught up with reporters following the news of the Atlanta Falcons trading wide receiver Julio Jones to the Tennessee Titans. The 49ers were likely interested, and there was a lot of speculation surrounding the potential of a Jones-Shanahan reunion. The coach worked with Jones for two seasons (2015-16) when he was the offensive coordinator in Atlanta. Shanahan was asked about the trade. "I'm very glad he's in the AFC," he responded. One reporter said it would have been nice to have
