49ers beat Chargers 14-12: Game recaps from Sep. 3

Sep 3, 2015 at 10:15 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers beat the San Diego Chargers 14-12 in their exhibition finale on Thursday night at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara.

Neither Colin Kaepernick nor Blaine Gabbert played in this one, with QB Dylan Thompson starting and finishing the game. Thompson finished the night 17 of 22 for 225 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. RB Jarryd Hayne led the team in rushing with 58 yards on 10 carries while WR Bruce Ellington led the team in receiving with 86 yards on three receptions and a touchdown, likely securing his claim to the team's third wide receiver spot.

Ellington's touchdown came on the third play of the game when he hauled in a Thompson pass and headed 70 yards down the field for the score.

And for those that want to see that tough hit by Jarryd Hayne as he finished a run in the third quarter, here you go. Game recap links are after the break.

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



2019 49ers vs. 2021 49ers, Part 1 (Offense)

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



A look at the details of Fred Warner's contract extension with the 49ers

By David Bonilla

Soon after news of the deal broke, Pro Football Talk released the details of linebacker Fred Warner's massive contract extension with the San Francisco 49ers. The five-year deal has a potential value of $95.225 million, including $40.5 million guaranteed. That would earn the All-Pro linebacker about $19 million a year. Interestingly, the contract's final two years are voidable, so the 49ers can choose to pick up those years if they find themselves in a healthy salary-cap situation. If they don't, then they have some options. Looking only at the extension itself and not 2021, which is the final year of his rookie deal, here is a year-by-year breakdown,
