49ers will not break Branch’s fall

Apr 20, 2007 at 7:07 AM--


According to Don Banks of SI.com, the 49ers will not break Michigan DT Alan Branch's fall should he last past the top 10.

From SI.com:
And just FYI, if Branch does indeed last past the top 10, my sources say the No. 11 49ers will not break his fall, even though they could use a defensive tackle. Nebraska defensive end Adam Carriker continues to look like a good bet in San Francisco.

SI.com also states, "Despite his physical talent, some scouts question Michigan defensive tackle Alan Branch's intensity."

The NFL power rankings for Week 2 illustrate the sports media's split over the 49ers after their blowout-turned-nail-biter victory over the Lions. If you're confused about the San Francisco 49ers after their 41-33 victory over the Detroit Lions in Week 1, you are not alone. In Week 2, NFL "Power Rankers" fell into one of two general camps as it relates to San Francisco: Those who think the 49ers took a clear step forward as they trounced the Lions over the first three quarters of Sunday's contest, and those who, after witnessing the Lions' improbable comeback attempt expectedly fall short, don't quite know what to think. It was a rough weekend for NFL analysts, as many in a long list of questionable media darlings tasted their first defeats of the

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters after today's practice and provided an update on Javon Kinlaw. The second-year defensive tackle has been dealing with a setback in his knee, an injury that occurred on December 20, 2020, against the Dallas Cowboys and forced him to miss the last two games of the season. Kinlaw was officially listed as "doubtful" for Sunday on the team's injury report. With the knee issues continuing to resurface, Shanahan was asked if injured reserve is a possibility for the defensive tackle. "Not yet," the coach responded. "I mean, he's still got a chance to play this week, so we're still trying to decide that. So, not yet." General manager John Lynch didn't sound too optimistic about Kinlaw's

Kyle Shanahan: 'Doing things better,' not tweaks, will lead to an improved 49ers defense

The 49ers had their first game of the season Sunday against the Lions, and it was DeMeco Ryans' first game as the defensive coordinator for the 49ers. Ryans, who was promoted after former defensive coordinator Robert Saleh became the head coach of the New York Jets, made the impression this offseason that he wanted the team to be ultra-aggressive, beginning with the defensive line. And that was the case Sunday, as four different 49ers (DT Kentavious Street, DE Nick Bosa, DE Arik Armstead, and DE Dee Ford) racked up at least five pressures, with Armstead leading the way at 9 total for the game. However, with the positives came some work to improve on, as the 49ers allowed 116 rushing yards, with most of the damage coming along the
