Dre Greenlaw says 49ers ready to fight, tough losses ‘really woke us up’

Oct 29, 2020 at 6:41 AM--

The San Francisco 49ers never gave up on themselves even after much of the national media had written them off. The playoff push is still going to be a challenge, especially in a tough beat-you-up NFC West, but things are looking less bleak than two weeks ago.

Kyle Shanahan's squad has won two consecutive games against teams that were favored. That comes after two upset losses, one of which was an embarrassing rout by the Miami Dolphins.

Second-year linebacker Dre Greenlaw joined the 49ers Talk podcast this week to discuss his nickname, "Big Play Dre," take a look back at that great play in the final moments of last season's Week 17 matchup against the Seattle Seahawks, and declare that his Niners aren't close to throwing in the towel on the 2020 season. In fact, they have a lot of fight left in them, and their high hopes remain steadfast.

"I expect us to play hard for the rest of 2020," Greenlaw told Matt Maiocco. "We've had some shortcomings, and we've had some tough losses that I think really woke us up. With the way the season has played out, with a lot of people being hurt, it's a lot of stuff that we couldn't control. I think the men that we've got on this team is going to fight until they can't fight no more. I know I am."

Greenlaw has racked up 27 tackles, three tackles for a loss, a sack, a quarterback hit, and a pass defensed through five games and three starts this season. His sack came on Sunday during a 33-6 rout of the New England Patriots.

The 49ers, who only focus on the opponent ahead of them, are locked in on this weekend's game against the division-leading Seahawks at CenturyLink Field — the same location as Greenlaw's memorable division-clinching goal-line stop from last season.

Greenlaw and his teammates are ready to give 100 percent and fight for the win.

"We all love to play the game, and this is what we do," Greenlaw continued. "I'm just going to give it all I've got until I've got no more because it's the organization that came and got me in the fifth round, so it's only right that I give them everything I've got every snap. I think that's (the case) for me and for the rest of the guys."

You can listen to the entire conversation with Greenlaw below. It begins at about the 19:20 mark.

The San Francisco 49ers lost their third consecutive game and sixth of the season. The team heads into its much-needed bye week, hoping to rest and recover — maybe get some players back on the other end. The latest loss came at the hands of the New Orleans Saints, who knocked off the visiting 49ers 27-13. After the game, reporters asked quarterback Nick Mullens about the locker room's mood as the season seemingly continues to spiral downward. "Right now, I'm really frustrated by the loss," Mullens said via Zoom. "I feel like we really could have done some special things out there. But we've got a resilient group. We've got a bye week. We've got six games left. And I feel like we can win games. We can win a lot of games. "We've just got to play

'It's a tough deal': Kyle Shanahan, Fred Warner, Kerry Hyder discuss the roughing-the-passer penalty

The San Francisco 49ers were still in the game at that point. It looked like defensive lineman Kentavius Street made a critical play, getting to New Orleans Saints quarterback Drew Brees to force a 3rd-and-long. Then 49ers players saw the flag thrown. It was frustrating because it looked like Street had done everything right. He didn't drive his weight into Brees and even landed on his side to ensure that it was a textbook sack. Teammates who did not make the trip to New Orleans and were watching from home were vocal with their dissatisfaction with the outcome. "I don't understand that call!!" cornerback Richard Sherman tweeted out. "Street landed off
