Broncos beat 49ers 19-12: Game recaps from Aug. 29

Aug 29, 2015 at 9:49 PM--


The Denver Broncos beat the San Francisco 49ers 19-12 in their exhibition game on Saturday night at Sports Authority Field at Mile High in Denver.

Making what should be his last start of the preseason, LB NaVorro Bowman looked primed and ready for the regular season. He had seven tackles, two assists and two sacks in the game.

It was a field goal battle for much of the game until the Broncos took the lead in the fourth quarter with a touchdown and two point conversion.

The 49ers offense struggled with only 92 net passing yards. The running game managed 145 net rushing yards, but 53 of those were from QB Colin Kaepernick. RB Reggie Bush made his 49ers debut and gained 21 yards in his only run of the night.

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

Beat writer calls idea of 49ers keeping Jimmy Garoppolo 'absurd'

By David Bonilla
May 19

The San Francisco 49ers insist that holding onto Jimmy Garoppolo this season is possible. The team has unsuccessfully tried to trade the veteran quarterback without success. Of course, Garoppolo undergoing shoulder surgery on March 8 didn't help matters. One 49ers beat writer, Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area, doesn't believe the team can realistically hold onto Garoppolo and his hefty $24.2 million base salary. After all, last year's No. 3 overall pick, Trey Lance, is expected to be the starting quarterback in 2022. Devoting a hefty chunk of this year's salary cap to a backup doesn't seem financially responsible. This is assuming that Lance remains on track to be the 49ers' starter. "If the 49ers do not view Garoppolo as the starter,



49ers rookie Kalia Davis not molding his game after D.J. Jones

The San Francisco 49ers begin their rookie minicamp on Friday afternoon, giving fans and media their first look at the nine rookies the team drafted, as well as the undrafted free agents the team signed or invited to camp. One player that likely will not participate in team drills is sixth-round defensive tackle Kalia Davis, who is recovering from a torn ACL he suffered last fall, which likely played a role in his falling draft stock. Davis has had an intriguing journey, playing linebacker during his freshman season before transitioning to the defensive line, which he attributed to his bigger size. "Well really, I moved from linebacker to D-lineman because my body was changing," Davis said. "I [gained] a little too much weight. The biggest part about



Why Trey Lance will help 49ers receiver Brandon Aiyuk reach his full potential

Don't be surprised to see Brandon Aiyuk breakout with Trey Lance under center in 2022 for the San Francisco 49ers. Just when many of us expected the Arizona State product to take a significant step forward in year two, he clearly began the year as an afterthought in the 49ers' offense. As a rookie, Aiyuk proved to be the perfect complement to star receiver Deebo Samuel and tight end George Kittle hauling in 60 receptions, for 748 yards, and five touchdowns on 96 targets. Aiyuk also scored a pair of rushing touchdowns on six carries. Last season, the 24-year-old Aiyuk only had 13 receptions on



Are the 49ers really underwhelmed by QB Trey Lance?

By Rohan Chakravarthi
May 9

Earlier this week, reports surfaced from FanSided reporter Matt Lombardo that the San Francisco 49ers have been "continually underwhelmed" by young quarterback Trey Lance as he approaches his second season in the NFL. Lombardo further clarified that his tweet was based upon a conversation with an executive who's "pretty tight" with the 49ers, as well as members of the coaching staff last season. Unfortunately, based on the words of multiple players on the team, as well as the coaching staff and front office, that unsubstantiated claim couldn't be further from the truth. Here's a month-by-month breakdown of the comments surrounding Lance following the season, beginning with San Francisco's post-season press conferences in early
