Social media reacts to 49ers’ Super Bowl berth

After the San Francisco 49ers defeated the Detroit Lions in the NFC Championship Game, earning a spot against the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVIII, fans celebrated their favorite team's accomplishment on X (formerly Twitter).


Detroit native and rap superstar Eminem was in attendance at Levi's Stadium. He gave the 49ers Faithful the finger in the second quarter when the Lions were up 24-7 but "lost himself" by the end of the game.


49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel joined fans in trolling Lions cornerback CJ Gardner-Johnson.


Fans reacted to the ongoing narrative that quarterback Brock Purdy is merely a "game manager."


Even sports pundits of the national media gave Brock Purdy credit for leading the 49ers to their eighth Super Bowl appearance.

After expressing fatigue from the Purdy hate, Pat McAfee, the host of ESPN's "Pat McAfee Show," said the second-year quarterback has "it."


ESPN sports analyst Ryan Clark stated the second-year quarterback did his thing after last night's performance.


The former Pittsburg Steelers player had previously said the hardest thing he had to do was act like Purdy deserves to be in the same conversation as Patrick Mahomes, Lamar Jackson, and Josh Allen, considering all of the talent he has around him.

The week of the Divisional Round, former Raiders CEO Amy Trask said there were "seven terrific quarterbacks and Brock Purdy" in the playoffs. After Purdy's performance in the NFC Championship Game, she sang a different tune.


FS1's sports analyst Emmanuel Acho discussed how the NFL didn't talk about Purdy's escapability like the Baltimore quarterback.

    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.

By David Bonilla

Ian Rapoport didn't offer much of an update on the ongoing contract negotiations between the San Francisco 49ers and their standout wide receiver, Brandon Aiyuk. However, the NFL insider emphasized one thing: The team is not entertaining trade discussions at this juncture. Reacting to Aiyuk's decision to unfollow the 49ers on Instagram, Rapoport couldn't help but chuckle at the latest development. This practice has become commonplace among players who are unhappy with their contract situations. Wide receiver Deebo Samuel similarly took this action in 2022 before requesting to be traded just before the draft. Things have yet to escalate that far with Aiyuk, but Rapoport sees his

7-round mock draft from The Athletic sees 49ers fortifying defense early

By David Bonilla
Apr 17

Analyst Dane Brugler recently revealed his seven-round mock draft for The Athletic, forecasting all 257 selections in the upcoming 2024 NFL Draft, set to kick off next week. "Piecing together a mock like this is time consuming, but I enjoy the exercise, because it allows me to focus on each team's needs, organizational trends and prospect-team pairings that make sense based on '30' visits, league buzz and overall interest," Brugler wrote. Most expect the 49ers to address the trenches early in the draft, and Brugler has the team doing that. It's just not on the offensive side of the football. In fact, Brugler doesn't have San Francisco
