Jauan Jennings: 49ers offense has ‘unlimited potential’

Nov 13, 2022 at 10:28 PM--

"Potential" is an excellent word to use when describing the San Francisco 49ers offense. The unit has a lot of potential to be explosive. Unfortunately, we haven't seen that full potential just yet, but the weapons are there. Deebo Samuel, George Kittle, Brandon Aiyuk, Christian McCaffrey, Elijah Mitchell—they are all playmakers capable of giving opposing defenses headaches.

The same goes for wide receiver Jauan Jennings, who hauled in four catches for 40 yards on Sunday night in the 49ers' 22-16 win over the Los Angeles Chargers. "Potential" is the word that Jennings used when describing the offense, which should soon benefit from the number of players who have returned from injuries.

"This offense can go to unbelievable heights," Jennings said in a post-game interview. "We just keep trusting the system and keep getting better in practice, and we'll take it to the game field. This offense, it has, no doubt, unlimited potential."

Jennings was among several players who were unavailable two weeks ago against the Los Angeles Rams. His head coach was happy to have him back.

"Jauan, he's been great for us," Kyle Shanahan said after the game. "He did an awesome job last year. It was good to get him back in this game."

The 49ers sputtered through the first half of the game, entering halftime trailing the Chargers 16-10. NBC's Melissa Stark asked quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo about the team's message at halftime.

"We were killing ourselves in the first half, and we knew it, especially offensively," Garoppolo said during his own post-game interview. "We were killing ourselves with mistakes, and once we cleaned those up, I thought we strung together some good drives and put some points on the board."

As for the offensive weapons returning to the lineup, the quarterback believes that will start impacting games pretty soon. He's glad to have so much talent around him.

"It makes my job a lot easier," Garoppolo said. "Having those guys—a couple of those guys made some big plays tonight, especially with the run after the catch. Jauan made a couple. [Brandon Aiyuk] had a couple of third downs at the end there. Just those little things, guys stepping up in big moments, that's the difference."

49ers' Kyle Shanahan provides timeline on potential Jimmy Garoppolo return

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is making progress in his return from a broken foot. However, whether or not he returns at any point during the playoffs remains up in the air. "It was the first week he was able to come out on the field, walk around a little bit, do some work out there," head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters on Friday. Garoppolo was just working through his rehab, the coach said. Of course, reporters seeing the injured quarterback prompted questions about his timeline for a return. Could Garoppolo potentially be ready to suit up—likely as Brock Purdy's backup—for the NFC Championship, assuming the 49ers make it past the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday? "I'd be surprised, but I think it depends on how this whole

How the 49ers have advanced their offense without changing their core identity

The San Francisco 49ers have developed into an elite-tier offense over the past seven weeks, averaging over 34 points a game with quarterback Brock Purdy at the helm, while ranking second in DVOA since they acquired Christian McCaffrey. However, they've run a similar offense since the arrival of head coach Kyle Shanahan, which bodes the question of how the 49ers have remained at their elite levels on that side of the ball, despite the amount of game film being produced on their tendencies. The answer: advancing their offense by adding a layer of intricacy, even though the idea behind plays is what San Francisco has run for the past few years. Right tackle Mike McGlinchey spoke on the topic to reporters this week, highlighting the difference between

The San Francisco 49ers and the Philadelphia Eagles will face off in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, with the winner heading to Glendale, Arizona for the Super Bowl, where they'll face the winner of the Kansas City Chiefs and the Cincinnati Bengals matchup. The 49ers and Eagles were the two best teams in the NFC this season, as well as the two most complete rosters, which is why it only makes sense that we do a position-by-position breakdown to evaluate the state of each team.
