Good call or bad call? Brooks’ hit on Brees

Nov 17, 2013 at 5:13 PM--



What are your thoughts on the penalty on 49ers linebacker Ahmad Brooks after his sack of Saints quarterback Drew Brees? The hit forced Brees to fumble the ball and it looked as though the 49ers recovered. That may have nearly sealed the game for the 49ers. However, Brooks was called for a personal foul and the Saints kept possession of the ball.

'That's something we can't do again': Bad luck with injuries altered 49ers' draft strategy

The San Francisco 49ers had a championship roster last season yet finished with just six victories. Injuries completely ravaged the roster. By the end of Week 2, injuries had transformed the depth chart to a point that seemed impossible to overcome. Still, the team managed to compete week in and week out, but its lofty Super Bowl hopes were long gone. The poor luck forced head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch to rethink their draft strategy, putting more of an emphasis on health than they had in past seasons. You could tell that was the case from the 49ers' latest draft class, made up of eight prospects with fairly clean injury histories. "Not just counting here but anywhere I've been in my career, you've got a lot of history in different



Bucky Brooks has Trey Lance going to 49ers in latest mock draft

It may sound like Mac Jones of Alabama is headed to the San Francisco 49ers with the No. 3 overall pick, but at least one NFL Media analyst isn't buying it and has the team going in another direction. Bucky Brooks released his latest mock draft and has Trey Lance headed to the Bay Area. "The North Dakota State product gives Kyle Shanahan a raw -- but talented -- dual-threat playmaker who has tremendous upside," wrote Brooks in his brief analysis of the pick. As expected, Brooks has the first two selections being Trevor Lawrence to the Jacksonville Jaguars and Zach Wilson to the New York Jets. The Lance selection means quarterbacks

San Francisco 49ers CEO Jed York recently told NBC Sports Bay Area that there is no rush to get rookie quarterback Trey Lance, the No. 3 overall pick in this year's draft, onto the football field. That's why the team held onto Jimmy Garoppolo, who has two years remaining on his contract. York didn't guarantee that Garoppolo would play out that contract in its entirety with the 49ers. But if that's what it took to eventually get the most out of Lance, allowing the young quarterback the luxury of sitting and learning, then ownership is willing to pay Garoppolo for that privilege.

RB Trey Sermon is ready to be a good fit in 49ers backfield

Don't expect running back Trey Sermon to have a hard time fitting in once he starts his career with the San Francisco 49ers. Sermon, who the 49ers traded up to acquire in the third round of the 2021 NFL Draft, comes to San Francisco with experience in the style of rushing attack he'll be a part of in the NFL. That's because he ran some of it in college at Ohio State and did some research on the 49ers before the start of the 2020 season in order to familiarize himself with what he'd be doing at Ohio State after deciding to transfer there from the University of Oklahoma. "I'm pretty familiar with them," Sermon told reporters after the 49ers selected him Friday night. "I knew they ran outside zone a lot because I studied it when I was coming to Ohio State, because I
