Tom Pelissero: “Chip Kelly will start a San Francisco 49ers revival”

Sep 8, 2016 at 9:58 AM--


Tom Pelissero of USA TODAY Sports released his 10 bold predictions for the 2016 NFL season. Included were Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson being named league MVP and San Diego Chargers head coach Mike McCoy being the first coach fired.

Also included within the predictions was a Chip Kelly led revival for the San Francisco 49ers. "That doesn't mean a playoff appearance for the Niners this season," said Pelissero. "But considering the relative youth of the roster, offseason-long quarterback questions and the strength of the NFC West, wringing out eight or nine wins from this group would be impressive. Powerful Carlos Hyde, not Minnesota's Peterson, might have the best shot to lead the NFL in rushing if he can finally stay healthy."

Eight or nine wins is a bold prediction for a team that most of the media predicts will have a tough time achieving last season's win total. The 49ers may have upgraded their coaching staff this offseason, but their schedule remains one of the toughest in the league.

The 49ers open up the regular season on Monday night against the Los Angeles Rams at Levi's Stadium.

This season, each can promote one or two players from the practice squad up to 90 minutes before kickoff, potentially increasing the active roster up to 55 players. After the game, any elevated player will revert back to the practice squad without having to go through waivers. Teams can do this twice with each player before having to sign them to the active roster, as was the case with center Hroniss Grasu this week. The 49ers on Saturday promoted running back JaMycal Hasty and linebacker Joe Walker from the practice
