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.

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.

The Green Bay Packers did it with Brett Favre and Aaron Rodgers. It's a solid blueprint that allows a rookie to more easily transition from the college game to the pros, especially when thrown into an offense as complex as head coach Kyle Shanahan's. "First and foremost, Jimmy's really good," general manager John Lynch said this morning on KNBR's Murph & Mac show. "He's a
