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.

Jimmy Garoppolo primed to 'turn it loose' with knee concerns behind him, says Kyle Juszczyk

When Jimmy Garoppolo spoke with reporters last week, the San Francisco 49ers quarterback noted that he no longer overthinks about the knee he injured during the 2018 season. He is a year further removed from the torn ACL and isn't concerned about his mobility or that first big hit, as was the case last offseason. "It's night and day compared to where I was last year, at this time," Garoppolo said. "At this time last year, it was more so getting back to being in a live pocket, having live bullets flying around me, and getting used to that. We're past that. I haven't really thought about it in a long time." Garoppolo has been taking part in

San Francisco 49ers offensive tackle Trent Williams was asked last week to identify one player he was looking forward to seeing this season. His choice was running back Jerick McKinnon, who he had an opportunity to train with this offseason. "I'm looking forward to seeing Jet," Williams told reporters. "After two years, the way he's looked in the offseason, I just can't fathom him not being a breakout player." McKinnon has been working to return from the ACL injury suffered before the start of the 2018 season. That came after signing with the 49ers just six months earlier. He has yet to take a regular-season snap with the team. That could change this

Fred Warner, Kwon Alexander, 49ers linebackers 'hitting on all cylinders,' expect to be faster, smoother

Fred Warner loves what he's seen from the 49ers linebackers early in training camp. The San Francisco 49ers are looking to be better in all facets this season. Offensively, the team looks to build on its No. 2 ranked rushing attack and No. 13 ranked passing attack. On the other side of the football, it seeks to improve upon its No. 17 run defense and even its top-ranked pass defense. The 49ers are hoping it will be enough to achieve their goal, returning to the Super Bowl and, this time, winning it. While this offseason has been the polar opposite of typical, the team is returning most of its starters. That continuity will be an advantage since NFL teams were unable to take part in team-organized practices or workouts this offseason due to the
