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.

'I hope Trey is going after Jimmy's job': 49ers' George Kittle says Garoppolo thrives on competition

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle spoke with Cam Inman of Bay Area News Group this week. In what was probably some prep-work for the likely-to-be top discussion topic once training camp kicks off next week, the All-Pro player was asked about the upcoming training camp quarterback battle ... which may or may not be an actual battle. Players may be tired of discussing Jimmy Garoppolo's job. It has been a big storyline the past two offseasons. Last year, the focus was around the 49ers possibly replacing their quarterback, who had just helped guide the team to a Super Bowl, with future Hall of Famer Tom



'This is the best that I've felt physically': 49ers WR Mohamed Sanu ready for training camp competition

Wide receiver Mohamed Sanu is entering his 10th NFL season and hopes to climb the San Francisco 49ers depth chart during training camp, which kicks off this week. Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel figure to be the starters come Week 1. The spots behind them are up for grabs. Sanu's experience may give him an edge, though, when it comes to the No. 3 job. The veteran wideout is already familiar with the offense. He played for head coach Kyle Shanahan, then an offensive coordinator, for a season in Atlanta. That helps. Sanu was briefly with San Francisco last year, appearing in three games but hauling in only one catch for nine yards. He spent the remainder of the season with the Detroit Lions before rejoining the 49ers at the end of March. Sanu says he



'Just more competition': 49ers' Fred Warner excited to face Rams' Matthew Stafford

Kyle Shanahan would have liked to look into the possibility of adding Matthew Stafford this offseason. He was shocked by how quickly the deal between the Detroit Lions and the Las Angeles Rams went down. As a result, Shanahan never got a chance to get his team into the mix. "I was trying to get involved in it," Shanahan shared earlier this month, sharing that he thought he had more time to do so. But it was too late. The trade was on its way to being completed. Now, Stafford is in the NFC West, and the San Francisco 49ers will have to face the veteran quarterback twice a season. News of the trade was shocking to many, especially those within



49ers' Kyle Shanahan: 'There's no open competition right now' between Jimmy Garoppolo, Trey Lance

Trey Lance may well find himself as the starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers before the season's out, but he clearly won't be starting training camp that way based on what head coach Kyle Shanahan said Tuesday. The 49ers obviously plan on Lance eventually being the starter over incumbent Jimmy Garoppolo after trading up to select him with the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. But as of now, the job remains Garoppolo's to lose. "There's no open competition right now in terms of they're getting equal reps with the same group," Shanahan told reporters Tuesday, one day before the start of camp. "Jimmy's coming in as the one and Trey's coming in as the two." Lance
