The San Francisco 49ers fell to the Houston Texans 23-10 in their exhibition opener on Saturday night at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.

While the 49ers did not come away with the victory, a number of players impressed in the loss. Running back Jarryd Hayne and linebackers Eli Harold and Shayne Skov are just three of those players. Even backup quarterback Blaine Gabbert impressed on his way to a 125.6 QB rating.

What wasn't impressive was the 49ers secondary. For the first time in Houston Texans history, three quarterbacks each finished a single preseason game with a QB rating over 100.

Here are the recaps from numerous 49ers beat writers. More will be added to the list as they come in.

This has been a mess of an offseason for the Houston Texans. Team representatives repeatedly stated that they have no intention of trading disgruntled quarterback Deshaun Watson. Watson has stated that he has no desire to play for Houston anymore. Texans brass has even reportedly ignored calls from interested teams. Was that all a ploy, though? John McCain of the Houston Chronicle believes so. Of course, everything changed when legal issues caused Watson's trade value to plummet, and Houston lost any advantage it might have had in trade discussions. Watson is currently facing 22 civil suits accusing him of sexual harassment and assault, along with an NFL investigation. The San Francisco 49ers were reportedly interested in Watson—before the

But he does have a personal preference for that pick, along with some thoughts on what factors the 49ers have been weighing throughout the decision-making process. Warner was a guest on The Rich Eisen Show Friday, days before he and the NFL Network will head to Cleveland, Ohio for this year's NFL Draft. Warner took several minutes to discuss what could happen at pick three, saying he believes the 49ers' decision could come down to what direction they'd like to take from current starter Jimmy Garoppolo.
