Maiocco talks Davis vs Brown competition on 95.7 The Game

Aug 15, 2016 at 10:20 AM--


San Francisco 49ers insider for CSN Bay Area, Matt Maiocco, joined Chad, Joe & Lo on 95.7 The Game to discuss a number of topics related to the team's first preseason matchup of the season. One of the topics that he touched on was the battle between OT Anthony Davis and OT Trent Brown for the right spot along the offensive line.

"I would think that Anthony Davis' experience ultimately is going to give him the nod," said Maiocco. "He's doing a pretty good job. Last night, there was a play where he was peaking inside, let the outside linebacker get around him for a pretty clean sack and afterward, Chip [Kelly] kind of downplayed that and said that there was something ... not necessarily putting it all onto Davis. That there were other things going on in that play and other assignments across the board that maybe were a little bit lacking on that.

"Trent Brown has done pretty well. He's a big guy, young guy obviously. But you know, Anthony Davis is young too so we'll let that one play out. I still think that Davis has the advantage. Trent Brown has only started two games in the NFL."

Listen to the entire segment on 95.7 The Game with the Anthony Davis vs Trent Brown portion starting at about the 6:20 mark.

49ers-Seahawks: Kyle Shanahan says competition will reveal Jeff Wilson's backup

San Francisco 49ers running back Jeff Wilson Jr. replaced Elijah Mitchell on Sunday against the Chicago Bears. Wilson finished the game with only 22 rushing yards on nine carries. That averages out to just over 2.4 yards per attempt. It sounds like Wilson will start on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks as the Niners look to rebound from their unexpected Week 1 loss. The backup role is up for grabs, though. The team has rookies Ty Davis-Price and Jordan Mason available. San Francisco also signed Marlon Mack to the practice squad. On Wednesday, a reporter asked the coach if there would be a competition this week for the right to serve as the team's RB2. "Yeah, for the most part," Shanahan responded. "That's what it was last week. We knew it was just

Among the topics discussed in those media sessions were the improvement of safety Talanoa Hufanga, the impact of new quarterbacks coach Brian Griese, and where Jimmy Garoppolo gets his vocal power from.

Jones as he gets set to face his former team when the 49ers face the Broncos in Denver on Sunday night. Here's a rundown of those topics and more in this version of 49ers

Quarterback Trey Lance wasn't the only San Francisco 49ers player who suffered an injury during the team's 27-7 victory over the Seattle Seahawks. Head coach Kyle Shanahan jumped on a conference call with reporters this afternoon and provided injury updates, as he typically does on the day after a game. "[Tight end] Tyler Kroft had an MCL sprain," Shanahan said. "He'll be out a few weeks. [Rookie running back] Ty Davis-Price had a high-ankle sprain. He'll miss a few weeks also." Shanahan added that they just learned about the injury to Davis-Price. The team will expect their other rookie running back, Jordan Mason, to step up in Davis-Price's absence. "He needs to [step up] now," Shanahan said of Mason. "Last week was his first week getting a lot

Nick Bosa is a first-year team captain. He is the only newcomer to the group of six San Francisco 49ers captains, including defensive lineman Arik Armstead, tight end George Kittle, safety Jimmie Ward, linebacker Fred Warner, and tackle Trent Williams. His teammates so respect the 24-year-old pass rusher that head coach Kyle Shanahan tasked him with the honor of giving a speech to the team the day before each game last season. That tradition carried over into 2022. "I just give the Saturday speeches after walk-throughs," Bosa said on Friday. "I was doing that all last year too." Bosa isn't very proud of his speeches from last season, but the experience was invaluable because he
