49ers begin short week of preparation for Packers with a Tuesday evening practice

By David Bonilla

Head coach Kyle Shanahan kept saying "Wednesday" when he meant "Tuesday" while mentioning the San Francisco 49ers' first practice of the week. That's because Tuesday will feel like the team's typical Wednesday, with some slight adjustments. Shanahan's team is coming off an exhausting playoff win against the Dallas Cowboys. Now, they have a short week to prepare for their next playoff opponent—the Green Bay Packers. That preparation will kick off with a Tuesday evening practice in Santa Clara. Why the late 5:00 p.m. PT start? "Yeah, everything's moved up one day," Shanahan explained on Monday while speaking with reporters on a conference call. "We're going to start a little bit later tomorrow (Tuesday). Just kind of to give us the morning, so we don't have



Comparing Offensive Rosters: 2019 49ers vs. 2021 49ers

The San Francisco 49ers are heading back to the playoffs for the first time since their 2019 Super Bowl run after a thrilling Week 18 overtime victory against the NFC West champion Los Angeles Rams. The 49ers were a 13-3 powerhouse in 2019, earning the #1 seed and a first-round bye, but this 2021 version, a 10-game winner and the 6th seed, may actually be better positioned to win it all than the 2019 squad. Let's compare the offensive position groups from each season to see who has the edge. Quarterback 2019 Jimmy Garoppolo 16 games, 329/476 69.1%, 3978 yds, 27 TDs and 13 INTs, 2.7 INT% Nick Mullens 2021 Jimmy Garoppolo 15 games,



49ers' Trent Williams and Deebo Samuel named to 2021 NFL All-Pro Team

Two San Francisco 49ers players were named to their first NFL All-Pro team. One is third-year wide receiver Deebo Samuel, one of the most dynamic players in the game. The second is the team's nine-time Pro Bowl offensive tackle, Trent Williams. Both were first-team selections. Until now, Williams, a first-round draft pick in 2010, has gone his entire career without being named to an All-Pro team, which may be difficult to believe. On Thursday, a reporter asked the veteran tackle what it would mean to finally be named an All-Pro. "I think it would feel good, finally," Williams responded. "It sucks because I can't let it define my career because I've never made it. If I felt like that's what I needed to define my career, then anything I've done up to



49ers' Kyle Shanahan shares George Kittle story while discussing player honesty regarding injuries

Kyle Shanahan has noticed many changes since transitioning from an offensive coordinator to the head coach of the San Francisco 49ers. One that he maybe didn't expect to be so drastic is how honest his players are with him when it comes to injuries, even when he hopes for complete honesty. Shanahan is one of the team's top decision-makers. That means his players look to impress him with their toughness. In their minds, that means pushing through certain injuries to be available. Shanahan joined KNBR this week and was asked to estimate what percentage of his players are actually honest with him regarding the severity of their injuries. The answer was surprisingly low. As a head coach, Shanahan figures that only about five percent are completely honest. That number
