49ers had to alter travel plans on their way to play Jets due to damage to their own jet

Sep 20, 2020 at 12:31 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers typically fly out of San Jose International Airport for road games and were set to do so for this two-game stint on the East Coast. Their plans changed, however, when the plane was found to be damaged, forcing the entire team to travel north and leave out of San Francisco International Airport, according to an on-air report by FOX.

The 49ers plan to stay on the East Coast between their two games at MetLife Stadium. The team has a comfortable lead late in the fourth quarter against the New York Jets and will return to play the New York Giants in one week.

The team will stay and practice at The Greenbrier in West Virginia this week.

Despite likely departing with a win, the 49ers have to be concerned after several players suffered injuries against the Jets. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, running back Raheem Mostert, and defensive linemen Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas left the game and did not return. The latter two had to be carted to the locker room for further evaluations.

The NFL announced today that the league is canceling the 2021 Pro Bowl game due to concerns surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic. It was scheduled to occur on January 31, 2021, at Allegiant Stadium — home of the Las Vegas Raiders. Las Vegas is being awarded the Pro Bowl in 2022. Pro Bowl honors and rosters will still be announced in December and continue to be based on the consensus votes from fans, players, and coaches, with each group's total votes counting as one-third of the selection process. The elimination of the Pro Bowl could allow the NFL to add a Week 18 to the schedule before the playoffs. That would help if NFL games continue to be postponed and rescheduled due to COVID-19. The league could eliminate the Pro Bowl week entirely without

Tankathon ranks each NFL team's remaining schedule based on difficulty. Right now, at the top of the list are the San Francisco 49ers, who own a strength of schedule (SOS) of .698. Much of that has to do with having two division opponents — the Seattle Seahawks and Los Angeles Rams — twice each on the remaining schedule. The Seahawks lead the NFC West at 5-0 while the Rams come in at 4-1. On Sunday night, San Francisco will face the Rams for the first time this year. The Green Bay Packers and Buffalo Bills are also listed among the 49ers' toughest remaining opponents, with the Washington Redskins and the Dallas Cowboys as the only two teams listed as the team's

49ers: Mike McGlinchey feels he's had a 'solid year,' criticizes 'lazy narrative' from critics

Mike McGlinchey welcomes criticism of his play, so long as the critic is looking at the entire body of his work instead of picking out a play or two here and there. He acknowledged that he has made mistakes this season. However, McGlinchey feels that his overall performance has been better than many are making it out to be. The third-year tackle sees the analysis on social media and is fine with it, so long as it is done right. Said McGlinchey on Wednesday: "Obviously, I don't really appreciate people who are the armchair quarterbacks that take a 30-second clip off of Twitter and think they understand offensive-line play. I don't like that." Pro Football Focus grades show that McGlinchey's overall play has been improving as the season progresses
