49ers Notebook: Snap counts vs. Giants, Kyle Nelson could be replaced, Baldy’s breakdowns

Here are other San Francisco 49ers-related storylines that might interest you.

49ers bringing in potential Kyle Nelson replacements


Kyle Nelson struggled on Sunday during the 49ers' 36-9 win over the New York Giants. It didn't cost San Francisco the victory, but that isn't to say that such mistakes might not continue down the stretch.

Nelson's snaps were all over the place, and offensive lineman Justin Skule eventually replaced him. Could the 49ers be looking to replace the team's longest-tenured current player?

"I know how down Kyle is. I knew how down he was," head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters on Monday. "He just came up to me today and just apologized and stuff. It was an unfortunate game for him. Kyle's had an unbelievable career. He's been a great 49er. He's been a great teammate.

"I've loved Kyle in these three years that I've gotten to know him, and he's been great for us. So, I know it was a really bad day.

"I just told him that, you know, fortunately, it didn't cost us anything. It wasn't an issue in the game because of how the rest of the game went. We were able to still get a W, but he understands this business. He understands how the league works, and we're going to bring in some guys tomorrow, work them out. We'll see how they look, and then we'll decide what's the best for us going forward."

Baldy's 49ers vs. Giants breakdowns


NFL Network analyst Brian Baldinger was back at it breaking down film and pointing out some exceptional work from the 49ers on Sunday.

You can find Baldy's breakdowns below. They include some more impressive play from the offensive line, running back Jerick McKinnon, and rookies Javon Kinlaw and Brandon Aiyuk.

The Deshaun Watson saga continues, and the star quarterback may have played his last snap for the Houston Texans. At least, that is the "growing sense" from sources in and around the organization, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter (h/t to Patrick Tulini). There is a growing sense from people in and around the Texans' organization that Deshaun Watson has played his last snap for the team.

If cornerback Jason Verrett decides to stay with the 49ers past the 2020 season, perhaps the team's training staff may deserve some credit for an assist. Verrett is one of the most intriguing cases among the long list of impending free agents on whom the 49ers must come to a decision before the start of the 2021 league year on March 18. Verrett has a long and difficult injury history that limited him to just six total game appearances from 2016 to 2019. But at age 29, he was finally able to stay mostly healthy throughout 2020 and put on a performance that showed he is still capable of being the type of player he was early in his career when he was selected to the 2015 Pro Bowl as a

Jan 5, 2021

In addition to potentially losing defensive coordinator Robert Saleh, San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan could find himself losing two trusted assistants on the offensive side too. Passing-game coordinator Mike LaFleur and run-game coordinator Mike McDaniel are expected to draw interest from potential new head coaches around the league. This year, thanks to new league rules, Shanahan cannot block interviews with LaFleur and McDaniel, so long as they are up for promotions to coordinator jobs. Reports state Saleh may be interested in making LaFleur his offensive coordinator, should he land a head-coaching job. That much was
