Gameday: Chargers beat up on 49ers in San Diego

Dec 16, 2010 at 8:31 PM--


Mike Singletary's days may be numbered.

The San Francisco 49ers went into San Diego with high hopes of finishing the season strong. While still in the playoff hunt, the 49ers fell flat. The Chargers beat up on the 49ers 34-7 as San Francisco could not get anything going all night.

After a great performance last week against the Seahawks, 49ers quarterback Alex Smith was 19 of 29 for 165 yards and an interception.

The 49ers' running backs combined for 55 yards and a touchdown.

It was an embarrassing loss for head coach Mike Singletary and Alex Smith who are not only fighting for a playoff spot, but are likely fighting for their jobs.

On Sunday, December 26, the 49ers will travel to St. Louis to take on the NFC West leaders at the Edward Jones Dome.

The San Francisco 49ers' only road game of the preseason is a trip to the Los Angeles area on August 22 to play the Chargers at SoFi Stadium in Inglewood. It was reported in June that the two teams would hold a joint practice leading to the exhibition matchup. At the time, NBC Sports Bay Area stated that the two coaches — Kyle Shanahan and Brandon Staley — were working out the details. It appears the details are finalized. The two California teams will hold their joint practice on Thursday, August 19, in Costa Mesa, three days before the game. The session is one of 23 joint practices scheduled in August,



Beat writer wonders if offseason additions could tempt 49ers to trade Raheem Mostert

The San Francisco 49ers should feel good about their running back depth. On their latest 49ers Talk podcast, Matt Maiocco and Laura Britt of NBC Sports Bay Area took a look at the team's offseason veteran additions and departures. When they landed at the running back group, Maiocco wondered if there is too much depth. Obviously, there is the argument that there is no such thing as too much depth. For example, the 49ers have to feel better about their quarterback position with high-potential rookie Trey Lance likely to open the season as Jimmy Garoppolo's backup. That's a better backup situation than the team had in recent years. At running back, San Francisco didn't just add veteran Wayne Gallman, who may be a severely underrated signing.

Trent Williams stepped up to the podium yesterday for his scheduled media session, which was the first time since March that he was available to the media. During the press conference, Williams expressed confidence in the San Francisco 49ers team around him, saying he believes that they are the "team to beat" this season. "I feel comfortable in the team we have," Williams said. "I feel like when [we got] all the guys on the roster on the field, I feel like we the team to beat. So, it's the first time in my career I walked into a situation with that type of confidence." Prior to last season, Williams had played nine years with Washington, never winning a playoff game. He missed the playoffs altogether last year as part of the injury-riddled 49ers that



2019 49ers vs. 2021 49ers, Part 1 (Offense)

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Lately I have listened to some podcasts and read some tweets comparing the current San Francisco 49ers team (2021) to the 2019 team that fell just short of winning the Super Bowl. I find the comparison interesting. And since many people quickly assume the 2021 49ers are not as good as the 2019 team, I wanted to take a look for myself. So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.
