Gameday approaches - San Francisco 49ers at Indianapolis Colts

Aug 14, 2010 at 9:41 AM--


After a week filled with news of nose tackle Aubrayo Franklin contract status, defensive tackle Kentwan Balmer being A.W.O.L., wide receiver Michael Crabtree's neck injury, and the shocker of running back Glen Coffee's abrupt retirement, the 49ers are about to put on the pads and play their first preseason game.

On Sunday, August 15 at 10:00 am, the San Francisco 49ers will play against the Indianapolis Colts. Many questions exist for the 2010 49ers, who many "experts" have predicted would win the NFC West.

After a "so-so" training camp, will quarterback Alex Smith finally be able to live up to his draft pick status? How will that offensive line, now starting two rookies, hold up against a pass rush? Can safety Taylor Mays eventually be the next Ronnie Lott? How will Michael Crabtree look after his first training camp under his belt? Who will step up to take over in place of Coffee?

Some of those questions may be answered on Sunday and fans are eagerly awaiting their team's debut.

San Francisco 49ers at Indianapolis Colts can be watched live at 10:00 am on NFL Network.

Who are you most excited to see play this week?

49ers Notebook: Could 49ers mark end of the road for Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady? Arik Armstead the baller; Deebo's big run; Outcome never in doubt?

There's a lot to unpack from Saturday night's memorable 13-10 win for the San Francisco 49ers over the Green Bay Packers, but some of the biggest news to surface since that game came to an end involves the legendary quarterback the 49ers faced in their latest playoff victory—and the one they could face next week. Keep in mind there are still a lot of unknowns here, including (as of Sunday morning) whether or not the 49ers will even get this opportunity when they battle in the NFC Championship next Sunday (6:40 p.m. ET/3:40 p.m. PT, FOX). But based on what Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said Saturday night to go with what's been reported about Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady over the past 24 hours, it's not incorrect to say the 49ers could conceivably be the team to

49ers more excited about Trey Lance now than when they drafted him, says John Lynch

By David Bonilla

Trey Lance has primarily spent his first NFL season as a student, learning the game. He's had two starts in place of an injured Jimmy Garoppolo but has spent most game days on the sideline as an observer. San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch has benefited from watching Lance in practices all season and witnessing his development. On Friday morning, Lynch joined 95.7 The Game and was asked how he would evaluate the rookie's first season. "I think it's been awesome," Lynch responded. "And a lot of people, I'm sure, are like, 'Man, this guy's crazy. What do you mean? He hasn't played that much.' But we had a plan for Trey, and I think the plan was to take it week by week. And we just wanted to see constant growth and development. "The thing
