'Staying in the playoff hunt will be a challenge': 49ers plummet in power rankings after 2-3 start

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers lost their second consecutive game and remain winless at home as the team fell to 2-3 in the standings. The latest embarrassment came courtesy of a 43-17 beating at the hands of the visiting Miami Dolphins on Sunday. The 49ers are exiting what many considered to be the easier portion of their schedule and now embark on a five-game stretch that includes the New England Patriots, Seattle Seahawks, Green Bay Packers, and New Orleans Saints. First, they will host the Los Angeles Rams before playing three of four games on the road before the bye week. With San Francisco's Super Bowl hopes becoming less and less realistic, the team's playoff hopes also diminish with each loss. Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers need to turn things around and start

The Patriots are struggling, sit at 2-3, and are coming off two consecutive losses. The injury-plagued 49ers responded to

By John Aiello
Oct 24, 2020

One of the most bandied about questions in the NFL this year has been: "What's wrong with Jimmy Garoppolo?" But maybe a more accurate question would be – "What's wrong with this year's version of the 49er offense?" The answer to the second question is obvious: Joe Staley's stabilizing influence is gone. Staley, who played 13 years for San Francisco and retired after the Niners' 2020 Super Bowl loss, was the glue that held the offensive unit together. He started all 181 games in which he played and had mastery of both run-blocking and pass protection schemes. At left tackle, Staley protected Jimmy G's blind-side and gave the quarterback those precious extra seconds to read through his progressions and find secondary receivers down-field. After Staley's
