Golden Nugget Award: This week’s winner should excite the 49ers fanbase

Oct 13, 2021 at 9:17 AM--


Week 5's Golden Nugget Award winner goes to defensive tack D.J. Jones.


The other nominees for this week's award are quarterback Trey Lance for his first NFL start, defensive end Nick Bosa, linebacker Fred Warner for his dominance on defense, and punter Mitch Wishnowsky for his 48.5 punt average in the loss against the Arizona Cardinals, dropping the San Francisco 49ers to 2-3.

The former Ole Miss Rebel did not have a dominant performance in the game but his sack on Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray in the first quarter had Twitter erupted.


In the second quarter, Jones continued his dominance when he got pressure on Murray in the end zone and appeared to be held for what should have been a 49ers safety.


One member of The Faithful let it be known that the fifth-year defensive lineman needs more respect by the 49ers fanbase.


Jones finished the game with four tackles and a sack.

The 49ers made Jones a sixth-round draft pick (198th overall) in 2017. He has started all five games this season, earning 12 tackles and one sack, per Pro Football Reference.

The 49ers have a bye week before hosting the Indianapolis Colts on October 24th on a Sunday night.

    Sports has been my first love since I was 12 years old. At one point I wanted to play football professionally. I started to take photography as a hobby in my teenage years but this was when I followed sports. I started to listen to sports radio, I found my true calling and it was to be a sports talk show host. Though I follow football and basketball, I started to have a new love of cultures around the world. After graduating from San Antonio College in 2018, I worked for the Castroville News Bulletin before going to A&M San Antonio to get my communications degree. Since I have written for the Ranger of San Antonio College, the News Bulletin and the Mesquite of Texas A&M San Antonio, I met many people and went to a lot of events. My major milestone was being in the press box of the San Antonio Commanders game for the Mesquite and being apart of a press conference with the Medina County Sheriff and other local news outlets. When I am not doing anything, I like to watch old cartoons on the DC Universe, play video games such as Mega Man and the Mass Effect series. I have also created Youtube channel called "Anger Management" with my friend Aaron Donnell.

Should the 49ers Play Jimmy Garoppolo Through an Injury?

By Chris Beno

If you're like me, you're ready for the quarterback drama to stop. Not even an injury to Jimmy Garoppolo's throwing hand, which requires surgery this off-season is putting a stop to the chatter. If the 49ers still had backups like CJ Beathard or Nick Mullens, maybe a less than 100% Jimmy Garoppolo would be the better choice going in to a must-win game. But that's not the case. Rookie quarterback Trey Lance showed enough in the second half last week against Houston to instill confidence in him going forward. Here you have orthopedic surgeon Dr. Nirav Pandya talking about Garoppolo's injury on 95.7 The

49ers' K'Waun Williams should be a go against the Cowboys

By Chris Beno

In case anyone missed it, the San Francisco 49ers starting slot corner K'Waun Williams opted out of the Week 18 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams because he still wasn't feeling quite right after being on the COVID/Reserve list earlier that week. NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco appeared on KNBR Monday and brought up the fact that Williams was out. "K'waun Williams was on the COVID list, and he just didn't feel right, and he was cleared off the Covid list, so it wasn't that he was held out of the game because of Covid, but he just didn't feel right. Just the worry of the work that he wasn't able to put in heading into that game. So, he should be back." In his place the 49ers started veteran cornerback Dontae Johnson in the slot to cover wide
