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

Sep 28, 2020 at 6:23 PM--


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.

49ers-Dolphins: Jimmy Garoppolo benched, replaced by C.J. Beathard

Jimmy Garoppolo was 7-of-17 for 77 yards and two interceptions during the first half against the Miami Dolphins. The San Francisco 49ers are trying to earn their first home win of the season but trail 30-7, and it looks like Garoppolo is done for the day. The 49ers are going with C.J. Beathard for the remainder of the game. This is his second consecutive week coming off the bench to replace a starting quarterback. Beathard was 14-of-19 for 138 yards last week against the Philadelphia Eagles after replacing Nick Mullens. Head coach Kyle Shanahan informed field reporter Lindsay Czarniak that the decision was made to protect Garoppolo, who has been sacked three times in the game. Garoppolo missed the last two games after suffering a high-ankle sprain during Week 2

Fans won't see Ian Rapoport on NFL Network over the next 10 days, but the NFL insider was on KNBR Monday morning to discuss the San Francisco 49ers' stunning loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. Part of the discussion surrounded the poor play of quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who is recovering from the high-ankle sprain that forced him to miss two games. Garoppolo's performance was enough to bench the starter at halftime in favor of C.J. Beathard. Although, head coach Kyle Shanahan said that was more to protect Garoppolo, who was sacked three times during the first half. "You could tell he was affected by his ankle,"

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
