Al Sacco joins 95.7 The Game to discuss the 49ers’ win over the Rams

Sep 14, 2016 at 9:44 AM--


Our own Al Sacco joined 95.7 The Game to discuss the San Francisco 49ers victory over the Los Angeles Rams on Monday night. While discussing the game, Sacco mentions how shocked he was at how good the 49ers looked in their win. He said that they looked poised, well coached, and crisp.

Sacco touches on the 49ers offensive line, which did not allow a sack against the Rams. "I think they're going to be better than people think on offense," said Sacco while saying that the line is a strength for the team and will keep them in a lot of games.


Sacco felt that quarterback Blaine Gabbert, who he thought might do well within Chip Kelly's offense, was a "mixed bag" on Monday night. He says that a lot of his throws were inaccurate and nearly threw multiple of interceptions. He also points out the missed deep pass to Jeremy Kerley that could have been a touchdown.

Although, one of Gabbert's strengths was his athleticism and ability to run, which he displayed on Monday night. Sacco just feels that he has to learn how to get down at the end of a play and stay healthy.

Sacco also says that the team can go 4-12 and still be a better team than last year because of their tougher schedule. However, he predicts that the team will get 6 or maybe 7 wins this season despite that schedule.

You can listen to the entire interview on 95.7 The Game.

It was a battle of two potent offenses against two of the league's top defenses in the NFC Divisional Playoff game between the San Francisco 49ers and Dallas Cowboys at Levi's Stadium on Sunday, and in the end it was the 49ers' top-rated defense that won the day and did enough to send their team to a second consecutive appearance in the NFC Championship



5 Keys to a 49ers Win Over the Eagles in the NFC Championship Game

The NFC Championship game is here. It's number one against number two, and the San Francisco 49ers are the underdogs on the road. It seems the 49ers have to play a perfect game to beat the number-one team in football. If the 49ers want a trip to the Super Bowl, they must stick to these keys to victory against the Philadelphia Eagles. Attack with the Run The Eagles' run defense is ranked 17th in the league allowing, on average, 121.6 yards per game. As ferocious as their pass rush is, the Eagles struggle to stop the run. Good thing the 49ers like to run the ball with their plethora of running backs. Expect running backs Christian McCaffrey and Elijah Mitchell (assuming he plays; Mitchell is questionable due to a groin injury) to lead the way. Head coach Kyle



Steady Brock Purdy gives 49ers what they needed at QB in win over Cowboys

Quarterback Brock Purdy wasn't quite at his best in the 49ers' 19-12 Divisional Playoff win against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday, but he made more than enough plays to help the 49ers advance and add another chapter to the amazing story of his rookie season. The win moved Purdy to 7-0 as a starter and gave him his second playoff victory, which is an outstanding start for any rookie quarterback, whether they were selected first overall in the draft or last, as Purdy was in 2022. Along the way Purdy did enough to continue to impress his teammates as well as those watching him at home, including former 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman, who expressed his praise for Purdy on Twitter.



20 quick observations from the 49ers' playoff win over the Cowboys

We started the season asking if Trey Lance could lead the San Francisco 49ers deep into the playoffs in his first season as the starting quarterback. Yet here we are watching Brock Purdy do that very thing, but as a rookie. And now Purdy has a chance to be the first rookie QB in NFL history to lead his team to the Super Bowl. Here are my quick observations from the 49ers' 19-12 Divisional Round win over the Dallas Cowboys. Do punters get nervous, too? Mitch Wishnowsky had two bad punts to start the game. He settled down and finished strong, though. Stop talking bad about Deommodore Lenoir. He's made big plays in back-to-back weeks. Brandon Aiyuk is such a smooth route runner.
