Rams heading back to LA means less travel for 49ers

Jan 12, 2016 at 5:25 PM--


It looks like the St. Louis Rams will be returning to Los Angeles with the Oakland Raiders bowing out of the race for the lucrative market. Thanks to today's vote by NFL owners, a story that has pushed coaching searches to page two for a day, they will likely be heading to Los Angeles with the possibility of the San Diego Chargers joining them.


The Rams will play football in Inglewood, which is a southwestern city in Los Angeles County about 11 miles from Los Angeles. It is very close to Los Angeles International Airport and just minutes from the beach.

This is all good for the San Francisco 49ers, who will have to travel a lot less for division matchups in the future.


The Rams will play in a new stadium during the 2019 season. Until then, they are likely to play in the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum near downtown Los Angeles.

With the Raiders out, the Chargers will have the option to join the Rams in the Los Angeles area. The 49ers and Chargers play each other during preseason each year. For 49ers fans in the Los Angeles area, and there are a number of them, this means that they will get to see their team during the regular season once a year and then possibly during preseason every other year without the need to travel.

NFL Network reported that the NFL was impressed with the proposal for the Inglewood stadium project and there was a lot of opposition around the league to the Raiders returning to Los Angeles.

The NFC West will actually feel like the "west" again.

Bad news on the injury front keeps coming for the San Francisco 49ers, who on Friday announced they'd be without tight end George Kittle against the New York Jets this Sunday due to a knee injury. Kittle has been battling through the injury in recent days after sustaining it during the 49ers' Week 1 loss to the Arizona Cardinals. Shanahan told reporters Friday the injury is one that would have resulted in a typical player being declared out earlier in the week, but Kittle's past resilience to injuries caused the team to wait until the last minute to make a decision. "We never really do that with George because of what he's shown us over these three years with him," Shanahan said during his Friday press conference. "We would have held out two more days to wait and

The San Francisco 49ers typically fly out of San Jose International Airport for road games and were set to do so for this two-game stint on the East Coast. Their plans changed, however, when the plane was found to be damaged, forcing the entire team to travel north and leave out of San Francisco International Airport, according to an on-air report by FOX. The 49ers plan to stay on the East Coast between their two games at MetLife Stadium.

With a couple of notable exceptions, the San Francisco 49ers stifled the New York Giants on the ground Sunday, which played a big role in the team's 36-9 blowout win at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The 49ers held the Giants to 66 yards on 15 carries, with 49 of those yards coming on runs from quarterback Daniel Jones. It was part of a dominant effort overall that saw the 49ers hold the Giants to 231 total yards while limiting them to 13 first downs and preventing them from running a single play in the red zone. "I think it's all about just everybody doing their job," 49ers linebacker Fred Warner said after the win. "With the run game, it's all about a mindset knowing that you want to come out and you want to attack -- just attack their offense.
