49ers begin acclimation period of training camp

Aug 3, 2020 at 10:05 AM--


The San Francisco 49ers have already reduced their roster to 80 players ahead of the August 16 deadline and today begin an acclimation period of training camp that will run through August 11. Matt Barrows of The Athletic broke down what to expect in the coming days, as the team eases its way back to football amid a pandemic.

Each of the first four days will include 60-minute walkthroughs. That timeframe will be bumped up to 75 minutes during the last four days.

Players will have Saturday off.


After that, the 49ers can look forward to getting back on the field for practices with minimal pads. Full-padded practices will begin during the next phase.

49ers players underwent physicals on Saturday, and the good news is that there were no further injury designations over the weekend. That means players who missed last season, like wide receivers Jalen Hurd and Trent Taylor, appear on schedule to return.

Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch will (virtually) speak to the media together this afternoon. It's the first time the duo has spoken to the media together since the draft. I'll be reporting on what comes of that conversation.

49ers begin 2020 season in last place within NFC West

The San Francisco 49ers were the lone NFC West squad that failed to win its 2020 opener. Kyle Shanahan's team lost 24-20 to the Arizona Cardinals at Levi's Stadium. Earlier on Sunday, the Seattle Seahawks beat the Atlanta Falcons 38-25. Later, the Los Angeles Rams beat the Dallas Cowboys 20-17 in the first game at SoFi Stadium — albeit without fans to watch. That means the 49ers start their 2020 season, which the team was so eager to begin as it attempts to make amends from February's Super Bowl loss, in last place within the NFC West.

Rapid Reaction to the 49ers' 24-20 Loss to the Cardinals

1) The Cardinals are good While the 49ers should have been able to get a win today, let's not lose sight of the improvements made by the Arizona Cardinals. DeAndre Hopkins dominated the secondary today with 14 catches for 151 yards. He was open a lot and the 49ers were not able to give much of an answer for his play today. Kyler Murray ran for 91 yards, passed for 230 yards, and had two total touchdowns. The ground game was good, their defense was scrappy, and their playcalling was not predictable. San Francisco had a lot of opportunities, which I'll go into, but the performance by the Cardinals should not be discounted. They are a playoff contender and will not be an easy out this year. They still have weaknesses, especially if you can force Murray to throw

49ers Lost in Loss to Cardinals

By Gilbert Brink

Wake up, Kyle Shanahan. As of September 14th 2020, Super Bowl 55 looks like a distant pipe dream. Yesterday, the San Francsico 49ers fell to the Arizona Cardinals in the opener of the 2020 NFL season. After getting off to a blazing start, jumping out to a 10-0 lead, the 49ers couldn't keep the heat on and lost at home to a team that accumulated only 5 wins in 2019. This Cardinals team isn't special. Often fans can find solace in a loss by heaping praise upon the opponent. Not today. Arizona signal caller QB Kyler Murray will be praised in the media for his efforts, but in reality, Murray was inaccurate often and relied heavily on newly acquired star WR DeAndre Hopkins to carry him through this one. Murray threw the ball 40 times for 230 yards, registering a measly 5.8 yards
