San Francisco 49ers punter Mitch Wishnowsky has been named among the NFC Players of the Month for September. He is the special teams honoree, while quarterback Jalen Hurts of the Philadelphia Eagles represents the offense and linebacker Devin White of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers represents the defense.


Wishnowsky averaged 46.8 yards on 13 punts (43.3 net) through three games in September, with a league-high six being placed inside the 10-yard line.

This is the second Special Teams Player of the Month award for Wishnowsky, who earned the honor in September of the 2021 season. He is the only former Utah player to win Special Teams Player of the Month.

By Kirk Larrabee
10 hrs

It was a strange week for the San Francisco 49ers, who had to work through an unusual schedule that saw them arrive home from their Monday night game in Mexico City in the early morning hours on Tuesday, followed by Thanksgiving on Thursday. Still, they managed to work through it and prepare themselves to play against the New Orleans Saints on Sunday, and in the end they came out on top with a 13-0 win. How did the 49ers work through that schedule? We'll look at that in this version of 49ers Notebook, along with some postgame thoughts from head coach Kyle Shanahan on the running back situation, a look at an impressive streak the 49ers snapped on Sunday, and much more.

Wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk has caught six-or-more passes for 81-or-more receiving yards in each of his last four games. He's hauled in three touchdown passes in those performances and nearly hauled in a fourth this past Sunday night against the Los Angeles Chargers. Aiyuk is on pace for his first 1,000-yard season and believes he is getting more comfortable as the season progresses. That's bad news for opposing defenses. "Just trying to continue to get better," Aiyuk told reporters after Thursday's practice. "I also feel as if, throughout the games that we've played, I've left a lot of plays out there. So that's my main thing, just trying to capitalize on every single play and every opportunity that I get, and then, hopefully, we'll be in a better spot at that

One person inside the organization even believes it may have been the play that turned everything around in the game for the Niners. The team didn't seem to be clicking for much of the first half. Kittle made the catch and then refused to go down 😤 @gkittle46📺: #LACvsSF on



Why play-calling shouldn't be blamed for 49ers' offensive woes

By Rohan Chakravarthi

The 49ers don't have a playcalling issue. They have an execution issue. Week after week, I've evaluated the 49ers' offensive film to understand where the problems stem from, and it's the same answer every week: execution. In Week 10, the 49ers scored just 22 points, as they converted only two of their five red zone drives into touchdowns, while leaving other points on the board elsewhere. First Red Zone drive On 1st & Goal at the LAC 9, Jimmy Garoppolo threw an incompletion out of the endzone to a well-covered Deebo Samuel. This
