49ers' John Lynch optimistic Azeez Al-Shaair will play vs. Cowboys

The San Francisco 49ers could have their linebacker core back together for Sunday's road playoff game against the Dallas Cowboys. That means having Fred Warner, Dre Greenlaw, and potentially Azeez Al-Shaair on the field together for the 49ers defense. That has general manager John Lynch excited. After all, the team appears to be getting healthy at precisely the right time. Greenlaw has been struggling with hip and core muscle injuries all season. Lynch was thrilled with what he saw from his 24-year-old linebacker against the Los Angeles Rams. "It was so fun watching him play," general manager John Lynch said Thursday on KNBR's Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks show. "Man, he was playing fast. The tape showed it, but in person, it was



Arik Armstead's unselfish play a big reason for 49ers' impressive run defense, says DeMeco Ryans

The San Francisco 49ers run defense has been as good as anybody's through the second half of the season. In fact, The Athletic's David Lombardi pointed out that the 49ers own the NFL's top run defense since their Week 6 bye. That's about when defensive lineman Arik Armstead moved to primarily play inside, filling in for an injured Javon Kinlaw. The 49ers don't see that as a coincidence. "I think our run defense improved drastically because of the unselfish play by Arik Armstead," defensive coordinator DeMeco Ryans said on Friday. "I think people kind of forget we lost our starter in Kinlaw early in the year, and we were trying to figure that out inside. When you want to



Deebo Samuel appreciates Kyle Shanahan's trust, 49ers' physical play

The San Francisco 49ers are just hours away from kicking off against the Dallas Cowboys in the NFC Wild Card round of the playoffs. One player everyone is excited to see is the dynamic Deebo Samuel. He is labeled as a wide receiver. However, the 49ers have utilized him as so much more this season. Samuel racked up 77 receptions for 1,405 yards and six receiving touchdowns this season, all career-highs. He also had 59 carries for 365 yards and a team-leading eight rushing touchdowns. Samuel even threw a touchdown pass in the regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Rams. He can do it all. This week, Samuel was asked how he would respond to someone who did not know him asking what position he



49ers' Kyle Shanahan impressed with rookie CB Ambry Thomas' improved play

Ambry Thomas' first NFL start came in Week 14, and it was a miserable outing. Yes, the San Francisco 49ers beat the Cincinnati Bengals 26-23, but the rookie cornerback surrendered three catches for 81 yards and a touchdown while being responsible for two penalties. Thomas earned the lowest overall Pro Football Focus grade of his six starts in that game. Those numbers have greatly improved since then. Thomas' 73.4 overall grade in Sunday's playoff win against the Dallas Cowboys was the rookie's highest of the season. He allowed two targets for 24 yards and just four total yards after the catch while recording a pass breakup. Thomas was inactive for five of the 49ers' first seven games. The word "bust" was being prematurely thrown out by some. The cornerback is
