Rams beat 49ers 27-6: Game recaps from Nov. 1

Nov 1, 2015 at 1:36 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers' offensive struggles continued in St. Louis against the Rams. As a team, they had just 189 net yards with only 38 of those being rushing yards. The 49ers have not scored a touchdown in eight full quarters now.

On a play that pretty much summarizes the 49ers' season so far, QB Colin Kaepernick didn't see uncovered WR Torrey Smith. Making matters worse is that he was uncovered prior to the ball being snapped, waved his arms and jumped up and down to get the attention of his quarterback, and WR Jerome Simpson also became uncovered just prior to the ball being snapped.

Kaepernick was 20 of 41 for 162 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions. Kaepernick was the team's leading rusher with 28 yards. Simpson, who recently returned after serving a six-game suspension, led the team in receiving with 34 yards on three receptions.

The 49ers were plagued by injuries against the Rams. RB Reggie Bush (knee), S LJ McCray (knee), TE Garrett Celek (concussion), RB Mike Davis (hand), CB Kenneth Reaser (ankle), and P Bradley Pinion (calf) all left the game with injuries.

CB Kenneth Acker also briefly left the game, but returned to the field. He is getting X-rays for a possible rib injury.


WR Anquan Boldin (hamstring) and RB Carlos Hyde (foot) were both inactive with injuries. That left lone Kendall Gaskins to finish the game as the team's lone healthy running back. Gaskins had only six yards on five carries. On Saturday, Gaskins was promoted to the active roster from the practice squad. To make room for him, the team released former Australian rugby league star, RB Jarryd Hayne.

Should Hayne clear waivers, he will likely be re-signed on Monday.

Rams RB Todd Gurley rushed for his fourth straight 100+ yard game as his phenomenal rookie season continues. He finished the game with 133 yards and a touchdown on 20 carries. Rams QB Nick Foles was 14 of 23 for 191 yards and a touchdown. WR Tavon Austin was just two yards short of a 100-yard game on just four receptions. As a whole, the Rams amassed 388 total net yards against the 49ers.

The 49ers will now begin to prepare for a home game against the visiting Atlanta Falcons at Levi's Stadium on Sunday, November 8.

Beat writer wonders if offseason additions could tempt 49ers to trade Raheem Mostert

The San Francisco 49ers should feel good about their running back depth. On their latest 49ers Talk podcast, Matt Maiocco and Laura Britt of NBC Sports Bay Area took a look at the team's offseason veteran additions and departures. When they landed at the running back group, Maiocco wondered if there is too much depth. Obviously, there is the argument that there is no such thing as too much depth. For example, the 49ers have to feel better about their quarterback position with high-potential rookie Trey Lance likely to open the season as Jimmy Garoppolo's backup. That's a better backup situation than the team had in recent years. At running back, San Francisco didn't just add veteran Wayne Gallman, who may be a severely underrated signing.

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

Kyle Shanahan admitted that he was frustrated by missing out on potentially pursuing Matthew Stafford in March. Instead, the Detroit Lions shipped the veteran quarterback to a division rival. The speed at which the trade went down shocked Shanahan, who thought he would have more time to get his San Francisco 49ers in the talks. "I was trying to get involved in it," Shanahan shared during a recent podcast interview with Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay and NFL Network's Peter Schrager. "Someone who had knowledge of the situation, I remember us talking to (agent Tom) Condon, just everyone, to find out when it was happening. I remember Saturday, I was so stressed

Kyle Shanahan would have liked to look into the possibility of adding Matthew Stafford this offseason. He was shocked by how quickly the deal between the Detroit Lions and the Las Angeles Rams went down. As a result, Shanahan never got a chance to get his team into the mix. "I was trying to get involved in it," Shanahan shared earlier this month, sharing that he thought he had more time to do so. But it was too late. The trade was on its way to being completed. Now, Stafford is in the NFC West, and the San Francisco 49ers will have to face the veteran quarterback twice a season. News of the trade was shocking to many, especially those within
