Trent Williams stepped up to the podium yesterday for his scheduled media session, which was the first time since March that he was available to the media. During the press conference, Williams expressed confidence in the San Francisco 49ers team around him, saying he believes that they are the "team to beat" this season. "I feel comfortable in the team we have," Williams said. "I feel like when [we got] all the guys on the roster on the field, I feel like we the team to beat. So, it's the first time in my career I walked into a situation with that type of confidence." Prior to last season, Williams had played nine years with Washington, never winning a playoff game. He missed the playoffs altogether last year as part of the injury-riddled 49ers that

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Lately I have listened to some podcasts and read some tweets comparing the current San Francisco 49ers team (2021) to the 2019 team that fell just short of winning the Super Bowl. I find the comparison interesting. And since many people quickly assume the 2021 49ers are not as good as the 2019 team, I wanted to take a look for myself. So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Yesterday, we took a look at the 2021 San Francisco 49ers offense to see how it compares to the team's offense from 2019. Some have said this year's team will be better than the 2019 team, while others have suggested that won't be the case. In our very scientific investigation, we determined the 2021 offense will be better than the 2019 offense. Today, we will take a look at the defenses. Interior Defensive Line Leading up to the 2020 draft, the 49ers traded away DeForest Buckner. They selected

Wait...what? Who writes an article about beat writers? Whose stupid idea was this? We like to read about players and coaches...the team - not the people who cover them. Right? We are just one week away from the San Francisco 49ers reporting to training camp. Although the first practice does not start until Saturday, July 31st, the players will begin filing in next Tuesday (July 27th). So I thought I would share my favorite follows, when it comes to 49ers news and content. And though this may end up being a train wreck of an idea, here are some of the really talented people who keep me informed: For 49ers news, notes, content We have many great people who cover the 49ers.
