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.

Rich Eisen 'not ready to sleep' on the 49ers and their playoff chances

While many have given up on the San Francisco 49ers and the team's playoff chances, Rich Eisen hasn't. The host of The Rich Eisen Show feels Kyle Shanahan's squad still has a good shot at making a run during these final six games of the regular season and perhaps surprising some people. Eisen's hot take during his "4 Downs with Rich" segment saw the 49ers, not the 4-6 Minnesota Vikings or Detroit Lions, as a team that can sneak into postseason play as the seventh seed and make things uncomfortable for an opponent. "I am not done with them yet," said Eisen. "The 49ers are coming off their bye this week, Thanksgiving week. They're coming back, and they're taking on the Rams, who have a short week. "I don't know. The 49ers can come in there,

San Francisco 49ers defensive tackle Arik Armstead landed on the reserve/COVID-19 list on Monday, and he won't be the last player to do so. Head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters via Zoom from his home today and confirmed that some close-contacts are at risk and will join Armstead on the list. "He did have some close contacts," Shanahan said. "When we get them all, they'll be on the list, so you'll see that. I think with this being out bye week, we weren't in there anyways. So, really, all is changed was today." Many of his teammates came into close contact with Armstead during Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints and on the plane ride back to the Bay
