ESPN’s Theismann and Hoge pick Niners as suprise team for 2007

Mar 19, 2007 at 11:34 AM--


In a Q&A, Joe Theismann and Merril Hoge of ESPN.com feel that the San Francisco 49ers could be one of the surprise teams of 2007.

Theismann: They played good, hard football all season and upgraded some crucial spots. This team could contend for the division crown next season.

Hoge: San Francisco is my team because I love Frank Gore and I believe he's due for a big season. Alex Smith is only going to get better and the organization made a concerted effort to go out and get some excellent players on the defensive side of the ball.

Why ESPN's Graziano believes we'll see Jimmy Garoppolo as the 49ers starter again

Even Jimmy Garoppolo expects to be sidelined for a bit. Today, an MRI will reveal the severity of his latest injury and how long the San Francisco 49ers quarterback will be out. "It feels like just the calf right now, but I'm hopeful it will just be a couple of weeks or something like that," Garoppolo told reporters after Sunday's 28-21 loss to the Seattle Seahawks. Of course, a segment of the fanbase is welcoming a transition from Garoppolo to Trey Lance, feeling the rookie quarterback can spark the offense. However, don't assume that we have seen the last of Garoppolo on the field for the 49ers, though. Head coach Kyle Shanahan has made it clear that Lance is

Sunday's 28-21 loss to the Seattle Seahawks felt like somewhat of a demoralizing one for the San Francisco 49ers, but two of the team's defensive standouts -- defensive end Nick Bosa and linebacker Fred Warner --expect to see their teammates carry a positive mentality forward as the challenges in their schedule continue. The 49ers were in control of the game for most of the first half but the Seahawks managed to lock themselves in a 7-7 tie with the 49ers at halftime. The Seahawks then took control in the second half, building a 28-13 lead before holding on late to come out of Levi's Stadium with a win. The loss was the second consecutive home defeat for the 49ers, who now sit at 2-2 on the season after a last-second loss to the Green Bay Packers last



49ers-Seahawks: Shanahan considered all options at placekicker after Robbie Gould injury, suggests team may try out kickers this week

The San Francisco 49ers found themselves in an unexpected and unwanted special teams conundrum during a 28-21 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday when a pregame groin injury to kicker Robbie Gould left them trying to decide between using punter Mitch Wishnowsky on field goals and extra points or not using a kicker in scoring opportunities at all. 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters after the game that he gave some consideration to leaving the offense on the field during situations that would normally require a placekicker. But Wishnowsky wound up getting the nod, although his results were mixed enough that head coach Kyle Shanahan kept his options open as the game went along. Wishnowsky connected on his first point after attempt, which came after a
