Game Day: San Francisco 49ers at New York Giants

Oct 11, 2015 at 7:14 AM--


Tonight, the New York Giants (2-2) will host the San Francisco 49ers (1-3) at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. This marks San Francisco's lone game against an NFC East opponent this season.

The 49ers are coming off of a 17-3 defeat against the Green Bay Packers. The Giants are coming off of a 24-10 victory against the Buffalo Bills.


The 49ers have lost their last three games. In those losses, they have been outscored 107-28. The 49ers, who are the NFL's lowest-scoring offense, have not scored a touchdown in the past six quarters of play.

QB Colin Kaepernick, playing behind one of the worst offensive lines in the league, has a 67.7 passer rating on the season and a 25.7 rating over the last two weeks. That includes a career low 16.7 rating that he suffered during week three against the the Arizona Cardinals.

Of the quarterbacks that have at least 60 passes, Kaepernick ranks second to last through four games according to Football Outsiders.

The 49ers have had one of the toughest schedules in the NFL through four weeks of play, and it will not be getting any easier. They hope to avoid their worst road losing streak in more than five years. The Giants are looking to win their third straight game after dropping their first two. QB Eli Manning has completed 62.9% of his passes for 976 yards, seven touchdowns and only one interception.

LB Ahmad Brooks will miss the game due to a death in the family. TE Vernon Davis will miss his second straight game with a knee injury. He did not play in last week's loss to the Packers. WR Quinton Patton (concussion) and T Joe Staley (knee) are questionable.

G Andrew Tiller was promoted from the practice squad on Saturday. To make room for him, the 49ers released CB Shareece Wright, who was vocal about the team's refusal to play him and wanted out of San Francisco.

Neither Lynch nor Shanahan asked Nick Saban about Mac Jones, potential 49ers draft pick, at pro day

By David Bonilla
Apr 6, 2021

File this under interesting pre-draft tidbits. San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch and head coach Kyle Shanahan were in attendance for Alabama's pro day last week. That made headlines because the duo opted to watch quarterback Mac Jones rather than attend Ohio State's pro day to watch Justin Fields. Paired with Chris Simms' speculation that San Francisco might have traded up to the No. 3 spot for Jones, that spurred others to seriously consider a Jones-to-49ers scenario. Alabama head coach Nick Saban recently joined the Dan Patrick Show and shared that neither Lynch nor Shanahan asked him anything about his former quarterback, who helped guide the Crimson Tide to a national championship. And it wasn't because they didn't have an opportunity to do



Trey Lance to hold second pro day on April 19; 49ers expected to attend

Justin Fields of Ohio State will hold his second pro day workout on Wednesday, April 14. San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch are expected to be in attendance. Both missed the former Buckeye quarterback's first pro day to attend Mac Jones' workout in Tuscaloosa. Shanahan and Lynch will have an opportunity to see quarterback Trey Lance of North Dakota State in person too. He will hold a second pro day on Monday, April 19 — 10 days before the start of the 2021 NFL Draft. North Dakota St. QB Trey Lance has now scheduled his second pro day for April 19, or 10 days before



Jason Verrett on re-signing with 49ers: 'My heart was always with San Fran'

By David Bonilla
Apr 5, 2021

Jason Verrett enjoyed dipping his toes into the free-agency waters. The veteran cornerback ended up re-signing with the San Francisco 49ers on a one-year deal, but it wasn't due to a lack of interest from other teams. He opted to bet on himself again, as he did last offseason, and prove to skeptics that he can stay healthy while playing at a high level. It also feels good to stay with something familiar. "[Free agency] was a good experience," Verrett told reporters via Zoom on Monday. "It always feels good to be wanted, but my heart was always with San Fran. I love the comradely we've got with the team, the coaches, staff, training staff, the amazing fans, the whole nine yards. I was happy that we [were] able to get a deal done, and I'm just excited to see what



K'Waun Williams explains why he picked the 49ers over Jets, Chiefs in free agency

By David Bonilla

K'Waun Williams had choices in free agency. The New York Jets and the Kansas City Chiefs were interested. Ultimately, the cornerback opted to stay with the familiar, which meant re-signing with the San Francisco 49ers. "All the (offered) deals were pretty similar, at the time," Williams told reporters on Tuesday. "I just chose the Niners. I couldn't deny playing with some of my teammates, you know what I mean? In our secondary, we've got Jimmie (Ward), Jaquiski (Tartt), we've got Jason (Verrett), all those guys. Just being able to play one more year with those guys was just too intriguing to me." Williams visited with the Chiefs before re-signing with San Francisco. Understandably, he didn't want to discuss the Lombardi Trophy from Super Bowl LIV that was
