Logan Ryan on 49ers' championship prospects: "This is their window"

By David Bonilla

Retired defensive back Logan Ryan spent the end of last season with the San Francisco 49ers, joining the team for its push toward Super Bowl LVIII. During his time in the locker room, Ryan got to know the team intimately and recently offered a unique perspective on its future. Sitting down with Colin Cowherd on FS1's "The Herd," Ryan emphasized that the 49ers are in their window to win a championship. The team came close last season, losing the Super Bowl clash with the Kansas City Chiefs in overtime, but they hope to get over the hump in 2024. "I think this is a window right now, and they're in it," Ryan told Cowherd. "And we know with great teams or trying to win championships or trying to contend and get to that level year to year, that takes a toll. It's

49ers' Brock Purdy, Nick Bosa weigh in on potential 18-game season

By David Bonilla

The NFL increased each team's regular-season schedule from 16 games to 17 games in 2020. The league is always looking to maximize revenue. An 18th game is expected in the near future, and there's no indication the NFL will halt expansion at that point. However, there are complications with lengthening the season by another week. The NFL prefers to conclude its season before Presidents Day. Adding a week to the beginning of the season could encroach on Labor Day Weekend, something the commissioner, Roger Goodell, likely wants to avoid. The NFL, a Goliath in sports, can likely do whatever it wants. This is evident in its decision to schedule games on Christmas Day—a Wednesday this year. It's a move that has rightfully

49ers Football is a Game of Inches and What-ifs

By Jon Opelt

Football is a game of inches and what-ifs. The 49ers Faithful know that all too well. First downs are sometimes made or missed by the nose of a football or a few links in the yard marker chain. Likewise, games are often decided by a tipped pass, the bounce of a ball, or a missed blocking assignment. This truth was on full display in the most recent NFC Championship and the Super Bowl. In the NFC title game, good fortune favored the 49ers, but in the Super Bowl, the breaks went the Chiefs' way, leading to Kansas City's victory. The Lions ran away with a 17-point halftime lead in the NFC Championship. But then, in the most improbable fashion, momentum swung. An overthrown ball ricocheted off the facemask of Lions defender Kindle Vildor and into the

Brandon Staley has transitioned from working with one Bosa to another. As the head coach of the Los Angeles Chargers, he worked with four-time Pro Bowl pass rusher Joey Bosa. Now, he gets to work with Joey's younger brother, Nick Bosa, who also boasts four Pro Bowl selections and a first-team All-Pro nod in 2022. Staley joined head coach Kyle Shanahan's staff and will serve as the assistant head coach of the San Francisco 49ers. Speaking to reporters last week, he expressed his admiration for the Bosa brothers and considers himself fortunate to work with both. "I think having to face Nick, you know what a challenge he is," Staley said. "And I've coached Khalil Mack, Von Miller, Bradley Chubb, Leonard Floyd, and Nick's always a guy that we would watch. And I
