Richard Sherman, Jed York, other 49ers react to Wednesday’s events at U.S. Capitol

Jan 7, 2021 at 7:19 AM--


Wednesday was a heartbreaking and embarrassing day for America. The public watched on television and streaming platforms as angry supporters of President Donald Trump, encouraged by Trump, stormed the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday in an attempt to disrupt the peaceful transfer of power to President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.

Included in those watching in horror were several San Francisco 49ers players, including Richard Sherman, who, like so many, wondered how the situation might have been handled differently by authorities had the skin color of those taking part in the chaotic mob been different. The cornerback didn't mince words, calling the angry protesters terrorists.


49ers CEO Jed York shared his thoughts on Vanity Fair's report that White House staffers were told not to help Trump stage a coup or else they could be prosecuted for treason.


Defensive tackle Solomon Thomas could not believe what he was seeing.


Then you have long snapper Taybor Pepper, who, like so many others, could not help but react to the imagery coming out of Wednesday's events.


Offensive tackle Mike McGlinchey was among those to retweet Biden's online response to the chaos.

Whenever the 49ers travel to Green Bay to play the Packers, the team normally stays in a hotel in Appleton, Wisconsin, about a half-hour away from Lambeau Field, where the Packers play. So, it was to Bay Port high students' amazement that the 49ers practiced on their field Friday afternoon to prepare for the potential sub-zero Green Bay weather, hence why Lambeau Field has been coined the Frozen Tundra. Bay Port junior Aiden Wright couldn't believe that the 49ers were practicing at his own high school, given their normal tendencies when playing the Packers. "I didn't really think it was

The Miami Dolphins will interview San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel for their vacant head coaching job on Wednesday, per TheMMQB's Albert Breer.

San Francisco is preparing to play the Green Bay Packers at Lambeau Field on Saturday in the Divisional Round of the playoffs. The team is coming off a Sunday win against the Dallas Cowboys in the Wild Card round, which means one less day of preparation for the Niners. 49ers offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel will interview for the Dolphins head coaching job tomorrow

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters ahead of Wednesday's practice and said that tackle Trent Williams and running back Elijah Mitchell will not participate. This week, the 49ers are holding three full practices as they prepare to play the Los Angeles Rams in the NFC Championship Game. Williams is dealing with the ankle injury suffered on Sunday against the Green Bay Packers. Mitchell has been bothered by a knee injury. Shanahan added that Williams is again determined to play, and the coach believes that is a possibility. "I haven't seen Trent yet today," Shanahan said. "I'll see him here in a little bit when we go out to the field, but Trent's the same as he was that game (Week 18 vs. Rams). In Trent's mind, there's no
