49ers thrash Eagles: Rapid reaction

It didn't start well, but the San Francisco 49ers adjusted and routed the Philadelphia Eagles 42-19. The offense scored a touchdown on six consecutive possessions. Six straight touchdowns! When was the last time a 49ers offense did that?

How did QB Brock Purdy look in his return to the field on which his UCL was torn back in January? After starting a little shaky, Purdy finished with 314 yards passing and four touchdown passes. He had some passes that looked like they got away from him, but for the most part, the QB played very well, on a national stage, with the potential league MVP on the other side of the field.

  • Great play by Charvarius Ward to force a field goal on the opening drive, after a Ji'Ayir Brown missed tackle allowed the Eagles to get into field goal range. Ward continues his great play.

  • Brown is playing pretty well, but he has missed some tackles throughout his first few games.
  • Deebo Samuel can do it all. He even returns kicks.
  • The 49ers defense gave up 120 yards on the first two drives, but only surrendered six points. That came back to haunt the Eagles.
  • The 49ers offense, meanwhile, was anemic to start the game. Two consecutive 3rd and longs. Two consecutive three-and-outs.
  • The Eagles had more first downs in the first quarter than the 49ers had offensive plays. That's not good, in case you're wondering.
  • Christian McCaffrey didn't touch the ball in that first quarter. Not sure that's the best game plan.

  • The offense finally got it going in the second quarter. Brandon Aiyuk's touchdown reception got the 49ers on the board. That was a great catch, by the way.
  • That was some bad tackling on the 3rd and 19 the Eagles converted in the second quarter.
  • Ambry Thomas continues to prove me wrong. He's not just playing better, he's playing really well.
  • The 49ers offense had a much better second quarter than they did first quarter.

  • Good things happen when McCaffrey touches the ball. The star running back surpassed 1000 yards rushing on the season, as well.

  • Speaking of McCaffrey, is he a lock to end up in Canton? It's certainly trending that way.

  • It's a lot of fun when Samuel is running all over a defense. He backed up his talk.

  • Dumb move by Dre Greenlaw, letting the Eagles and the crowd back into this game.

  • Greenlaw should not have been ejected, though. I can't believe I agree with Skip Bayless here.

  • Greenlaw gave the Eagles the momentum. Samuel took it right back.

  • Third and Jauan (Jennings) scores touchdowns, as well. He tossed that defensive back, by the way.

  • What a game by Samuel. Over 100 yards receiving to go along with three touchdowns.
  • Congrats to Kalia Davis. This was his first game to be in uniform. And he got his first sack.

Next up for the 49ers is another matchup with the Seattle Seahawks, who will be well rested, coming off a mini-bye. This will be another big game for the 49ers, who will be looking to extend their lead in the NFC West and keep pace with the conference-leading Eagles.

49ers OL Jon Feliciano says Eagles DT Jalen Carter threatened him and his children with death during game

By Kirk Larrabee

The bad blood between the Philadelphia Eagles and San Francisco 49ers seems to be getting worse. It certainly isn't getting any less bizarre. The latest chapter of back-and-forth between these two teams occurred Tuesday evening in an exchange between 49ers offensive lineman Jon Feliciano and Eagles defensive tackle Jalen Carter. Feliciano made headlines earlier in the week by publicly pointing out a mistake made by guard Spencer Burford during a pivotal overtime play against the Chiefs in Super Bowl LVIII, to which Carter responded by writing "Same dude who spoke on my dead teammate and the reason I was emotional during our game." Carter was referring to former University of Georgia player Devin Willock, who died along with team recruiting analyst Chandler LeCroy

49ers Notebook: Nick Bosa lobbies for 49ers to keep Chase Young; Kyle Juszczyk addresses his future; Has anyone on the team watched the Super Bowl yet?

By Kirk Larrabee

The offseason is underway for the San Francisco 49ers, which means the team's decision makers will soon have to determine which free agents they would like to try to keep and which ones they'll have to let go. One of the more interesting cases is defensive end Chase Young, whom the 49ers added during the regular season from the Washington Commanders in exchange for a third-round draft pick. It may be hard for the 49ers to prevent Young from being more than a rent-a-player, but Young's friend and former Ohio State University teammate Nick Bosa made it clear Tuesday he'd like to see general manager John Lynch and the 49ers brass find a way to keep Young on the team. In this edition of the 49ers Notebook, we delve into a range of topics starting with Bosa's

Video of an emotional Fred Warner reacting to 49ers LB Dre Greenlaw's injury emerges

By David Bonilla

Fred Warner and Dre Greenlaw are arguably the best linebacker duo in the NFL, serving as the heart of the San Francisco 49ers defense while sharing a strong bond. Therefore, it's no surprise that Warner felt deeply for his teammate and friend when Greenlaw suffered a torn Achilles in the second quarter of Super Bowl 58 against the Kansas City Chiefs. The following video captures Warner's raw emotional response after Greenlaw was carted off the field, revealing the profound anguish experienced by the star linebacker, even as teammate Nick Bosa attempted to console him. This hurts to watch so much. Via

Klint Kubiak commends Kyle Shanahan after departing 49ers for Saints

By David Bonilla
Feb 15

Klint Kubiak is among several assistant coaches departing the San Francisco 49ers for opportunities elsewhere. He will serve as the New Orleans Saints' offensive coordinator after his stint as the 49ers' offensive passing game specialist. Kubiak only spent one season with the 49ers. Of course, it's unsurprising to see the considerable interest in head coach Kyle Shanahan's coaching staff, given the success many of his proteges have found across the league. Upon his departure, Kubiak had nothing but praise for his time working under Shanahan. "Just being here a year, my experience is, Kyle really lets you into his brain in his game plan meetings," Kubiak
