Jason Verrett, Mike McGlinchey shine, earn PFF’s highest grades from 49ers-Rams

Oct 19, 2020 at 9:23 AM--


Mike McGlinchey had a simple message for his critics after the San Francisco 49ers' 24-16 victory over the Los Angeles Rams on Sunday night.


He was indeed.

McGlinchey earned Pro Football Focus' highest offensive grade from the game. According to the analytics site, his 86.1 overall grade was his best of this season and his best performance since Week 13 of last season against the Baltimore Ravens. McGlinchey didn't allow a single pressure from Rams defenders on 35 pass-block snaps and earned his second-highest run-block grade (84.9) of the season.

However, the 49ers' highest-graded player and the highest-graded player of the game was cornerback Jason Verrett. He finished the game with three tackles, an interception, and two passes defensed. Verrett didn't give up a reception on Sunday night.

The interception came at a critical moment in the fourth quarter and helped the 49ers regain control of the game.


"That fourth-and-(two) pick was probably the biggest play of the year," defensive lineman Arik Armstead said following the game. "That was amazing to see. Obviously, you saw how excited everybody was for him."

Below were the five highest-graded 49ers players on offense against the Rams.

Fred Warner was overwhelmed by over 200 text messages and calls from friends and colleagues on Wednesday when news broke that the San Francisco 49ers were signing him to a massive five-year extension, making him the highest-paid linebacker in the NFL. The newfound riches won't change his attitude, though. Instead, Warner will continue working to earn the respect of his peers and do whatever he can to contribute to the team goal of winning a championship. "My goals and aspirations are always going to be set to the highest standard, higher than anybody else can put on me," Warner told reporters on Thursday. "And that holds true to the season, even before this contract was set and done. My (personal) goals and my goals for this team, they don't change. So that's what's exciting,



PFF projects Jimmy Garoppolo as a 49ers starter, Dee Ford as a player to watch

Jimmy Garoppolo is slated to be the Week 1 starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers when they travel to Detroit to play the Lions. However, some wonder how quickly rookie Trey Lance will get up to speed and if the No. 3 overall pick could show enough in training camp to create a difficult decision for head coach Kyle Shanahan. Ben Linsey of Pro Football Focus projected the starting lineups for all 32 NFL teams, and one of the biggest 49ers-related takeaways is that he has Garoppolo firmly situated as the team's starter, despite the analytics site stating in the past that it holds Lance in high regard and believes he will find NFL success. Lance is still a



PFF names QB among three 49ers training camp battles to watch

It's almost too easy to name the quarterback competition among the upcoming San Francisco 49ers training camp battles to watch. With players set to report to the team's facilities in Santa Clara next week, a lot of eyes will be focused on observing the progress of the No. 3 overall pick — quarterback Trey Lance. Should it be among the most intriguing competitions, though? San Francisco's brass has repeatedly stated that Jimmy Garoppolo is expected to be the starter come Week 1. Head coach Kyle Shanahan has a lot of confidence in his veteran quarterback. His availability, not his ability, has always been the concern. That doesn't mean the rookie won't try to prove himself a quick study and unseat Garoppolo. "I definitely see it as Jimmy's the



Kyle Juszczyk: Kyle Shanahan and Mike McDaniel's vision makes the 49ers dangerous

Kyle Juszczyk spent his first four NFL seasons with the Baltimore Ravens before signing with the San Francisco 49ers in 2017. The best fullback in the league re-signed with the team in March, ensuring he remains in the Bay Area through the 2025 season. It sounds like Juszczyk has no regrets about the decision to remain with head coach Kyle Shanahan. It's an offensive scheme that suits him and takes advantage of his unique versatility. Juszczyk may not have had the same opportunities with another organization. "I definitely have had the most fun in San Francisco because I am a little more featured," Juszczyk said this week on The Ross Tucker Football Podcast. "'Featured' is different as a fullback. I'm not the featured halfback or the No. 1 receiver. ...
