Back in the hunt: Where the 49ers stand in the NFC playoff picture after rout of Rams

By David Bonilla

Let's not get too far ahead of ourselves. The San Francisco 49ers still have eight games remaining on their 2021 schedule. However, their season isn't as dead as it appeared a week ago. After a decisive 31-10 victory over the Los Angeles Rams, a division rival with Super Bowl aspirations, their playoff hopes are alive. Next up are the Jacksonville Jaguars, a team Kyle Shanahan's Niners should be able to beat. Of course, that was the thinking in Week 9 against an injury-depleted Arizona Cardinals team. That didn't go as hoped. However, if the 49ers can ride the momentum of Monday night's impressive and somewhat shocking win throughout the rest of the season, they could be a dangerous team down the

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel has been named the NFC Offensive Player of the Week following his performance in Week 10 against the Los Angeles Rams. The 49ers beat the Rams 31-10 at Levi's Stadium. Samuel totaled five receptions and 133 scrimmage yards (97 receiving, career-high 36 rushing) with two touchdowns (one receiving, one rushing) against the Rams. It was his first career game with both a receiving and rushing touchdown. This is the second Offensive Player of the Week award for Samuel, with the first coming in Week 8 of this season. He joins Pro Football Hall of Famer Jerry Rice (1990, 1992 and 1994) as the only 49ers wide receivers to earn



Could Kyle Shanahan and the 49ers face a second rebuild this off-season?

As the 2021 season reaches the halfway point, one thing is for sure: there is still a lot of football left. Even with the San Francisco 49ers sitting at 3-5, they still (thanks to an underperforming NFC) have a legitimate shot at getting to the playoffs this year. But it's not too early to start thinking about the future. If the season were to end now, head coach Kyle Shanahan would be coming off his fourth losing season in five years. The 49ers would also have over 30 players entering free agency, no first-round draft pick in 2022, and appear to be on the brink of a second rebuild under the current front office. Just for fun, let's begin thinking about what this off-season could look like for the 49ers. How this season wraps up will strongly determine the approach this
