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.

ESPN feels 49ers WR Dante Pettis could benefit from a change of scenery

By David Bonilla

Wide receiver Dante Pettis has been inactive for the past two games. It's clear that the San Francisco 49ers coaching staff doesn't view the former second-round pick as the player it had hoped he would become. ESPN selected Pettis as the 49ers player who the team most likely would like to offload before the upcoming trade deadline. "Pettis simply doesn't have a role for the Niners anymore," explains ESPN's Nick Wagoner, "and that is unlikely to change without a handful of injuries in front of him. The past two weeks, the 2018 second-round pick was inactive in favor of Kevin White, who

Kyle Shanahan: Is the young, "cool," and "fearless" coach's old-school mentality holding the 49ers back?

By Chris Wilson

The San Francisco 49ers describe their head coach as a "detailed wizard," and an "aggressive guru," but Kyle Shanahan's actions -- and words -- tell a different story of a man struggling to find a path to greatness. Prior to the San Francisco 49ers' NBC Sunday Night Football matchup with the Los Angeles Rams, sideline reporter Michelle Tafoya asked each player from both teams for three words which best describe their respective head coach. The point of the exercise was to highlight the similarities between the two young coaches, which was a common theme throughout the broadcast. Four of the words provided were identical, and the remainder were relatively similar. However, Shanahan's descriptors formed the image of a "smart" and "relentless"

Feels Great Maybe? Jimmy Garoppolo's time on the 49ers could be coming to an end

By Jordan Elliott
Oct 15, 2020

Five weeks into the NFL season, the San Francisco 49ers find themselves digging a hole they might not be able to climb out of this season. Sitting at 2-3, and in last place in an increasingly competitive NFC West, the 49ers are on the verge of removing themselves from any kind of playoff discussion, let alone being a Super Bowl contender. Injuries have certainly played their part, but this 49er roster has been constructed with enough depth to give them a punchers chance regardless. Far more unsettling than the injuries, however, is the recent play of starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, whom the 49ers paid a handsome sum (pun intended) to be their franchise signal caller in 2018. Outside of one good half against a
