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.

General manager John Lynch informed reporters today that the San Francisco 49ers are among the teams that have surpassed the 85 percent vaccination threshold for players. The team has had a 100 percent vaccination rate among its Tier 1 and Tier 2 staff for a while now. "Originally, everybody kind of had that goal on 85 percent, and I'm proud to say that we're up over 90 percent," Lynch said. "It really speaks to our players. We didn't enforce anything. What we tried to do is just communicate with our guys and rely on the professionals to educate them as much as possible. Our guys really arrived at this individually and as a team, and we're proud of them for that." With the vast majority of players vaccinated, the 49ers are unlikely to have to worry about training



'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



USA Today predicts 49ers to win NFC West with this record

Nate Davis of USA TODAY released his annual NFL predictions this week, and San Francisco 49ers fans might wonder how the national reporter feels the league's toughest division, the NFC West, will pan out. San Francisco is coming off a disappointing injury-plagued six-win campaign. It was the third losing season in head coach Kyle Shanahan's four years with the team, and the 49ers hope 2020, not their 2019 campaign that ended with a Super Bowl appearance, is the aberration. Most expect the 49ers to be much improved in 2021, assuming the team can stay relatively healthy. San Francisco



2019 49ers vs. 2021 49ers, Part 1 (Offense)

How well do the 2021 49ers stack up to the 2019 team? Lately I have listened to some podcasts and read some tweets comparing the current San Francisco 49ers team (2021) to the 2019 team that fell just short of winning the Super Bowl. I find the comparison interesting. And since many people quickly assume the 2021 49ers are not as good as the 2019 team, I wanted to take a look for myself. So as we prepare for the team to report on Tuesday, let's compare the two teams, position by position. For the purpose of this very scientific experiment, we will assume everyone is healthy (even though that never happens). Let's start on offense. The defensive comparison is coming soon.
