L.A. stadium clears hurdle; 49ers could be targeted

Jan 21, 2009 at 7:27 AM--


Pro Football Talk seems to think that the San Francisco 49ers could be one of the teams targeted by the city of Los Angeles for a possible move.

While the team struggles to get its own stadium deal done in Santa Clara, the ballot initiative that would clear the way for $150 million in infrastructure improvements relating to a new NFL stadium in the City of Industry, just outside Los Angeles, passed overwhelmingly on Tuesday.

PFT also believes that the Buffalo Bills, Jacksonville Jaguars, Oakland Raiders, San Diego Chargers, Minnesota Vikings, New Orleans Saints, St. Louis Rams, and maybe even the Detroit Lions could be targets as well.

Every game is a home game for the 49ers, and it's both by design and 30 years in the making. Late last month, the 3-win San Francisco 49ers headed south to face the 3-win Los Angeles Rams in a pivotal NFC West matchup. The Niners' fourth victory of the 2022 NFL regular season was abnormal on numerous fronts, highlighted by a "Trifecta" performance by San Francisco's new running back Christian McCaffrey, who threw a first-half touchdown pass before scoring on the ground and through the air in the second half. The Rams had no answer for McCaffrey or quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo, who played his best game of the season, as he led the 49ers

Troy Aikman on 49ers: If I could hire any coach, Kyle Shanahan would be that guy

Hall of Fame quarterback Troy Aikman, who was in the broadcast booth for Monday night's game in Mexico City between the San Francisco 49ers and Arizona Cardinals, said he is "a huge buyer" of the former as a legitimate threat in the NFC. The team is filled with star power and playmakers, evident by its dominant 38-10 primetime win. However, that's not necessarily the main reason the analyst has believed in the Niners for several years. "A big reason for that is because of [head coach] Kyle Shanahan," Aikman said on ESPN's SportsCenter after the game. "If I was in a position to hire a head coach, and I could hire anybody I wanted, Kyle Shanahan would be that guy. The way he's able to utilize his personnel ... I think, as we mentioned in our game, John Lynch, their general

There's a player-player rivalry brewing in the NFC West. Arizona Cardinals wide receiver DeAndre Hopkins is ready for a bout with San Francisco 49ers cornerback Charvarius Ward, and he's not talking about the Week 18 rematch between the two teams in January. Following this past Monday night's win over the Cardinals in Mexico City, Ward criticized Hopkins following the 49ers' 38-10 victory. "He was getting locked up. He was doing some dirty things," Ward said. "He tried to clip me, he grabbed me by the throat. He grabbed my facemask on one play, so I don't respect his game. That's steroid boy." That last part is a jab regarding
