49ers defense gives up 311 yards of offense by halftime

Sep 25, 2016 at 2:30 PM--


So much for a struggling Seattle Seahawks offense. The cure was obviously a matchup against the San Francisco 49ers defense. Seattle had 311 yards of total offense ... by halftime.

The fact the the 49ers offense continues to struggle has not made things any better for San Francisco. The Blaine Gabbert led unit managed just 102 total yards of offense in the first half with only 25 coming from the running game, which has struggled so far this season. That's interesting considering that, in the past, Chip Kelly offenses have focused heavily on the running game and been very successful doing so.

The only reason the Seahawks had 311 total yards and not 317 was because the 49ers managed to sack Seahawks QB Russell Wilson at the end of the first half. RB Christine Michael is averaging nearly 7 yards per carry against the 49ers and has two touchdowns. Wilson has efficiently completed nearly 74-percent of his passes.

On offense, the 49ers are without TE Vance McDonald who left the game with a hip injury and CB Jimmie Ward who left the game with a right quad non-contact injury.

The Seahawks lead the 49ers 24-3 at halftime.

Solomon Thomas gives Ziggy Ansah his blessing to wear No. 94

New San Francisco 49ers defensive end Ezekiel Ansah had been practicing this week while wearing a No. 98 jersey. That number, of course, belongs to defensive end Ronald Blair, who remains on the physically-unable-to-perform (PUP) list with a knee injury. That was only temporary. When Ansah takes the field on Sunday against the New York Giants, the veteran pass rusher will be wearing the same jersey number he wore in Detroit and Seattle — 94. But wait a minute — that number belongs to former first-round pick Solomon Thomas, who played as recently as this past weekend. It turns out that Thomas, who suffered a season-ending ACL injury, gave Ansah his blessing. Head coach Kyle Shanahan explained that Ansah initially had to wear

Kyle Shanahan says Jimmy Garoppolo, offense have to play better after 49ers' loss to Cardinals

There's plenty of blame to go around for the 49ers' 24-20 loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, but one place the team will need to find some answers in a hurry is on offense, particularly in the passing game. On the surface, the numbers the 49ers put up through the air on Sunday don't look too bad, with starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo finishing with 259 yards, two touchdowns, zero interceptions, and a 103.0 rating on 19 of 33 passing. But on Sunday there were certainly some inconsistencies in Garoppolo's game, which showed up on third and fourth downs in particular. The 49ers converted just two of 11 third-down opportunities on Sunday, while also falling short on each of their two chances on fourth down. One of Garoppolo's touchdown passes came on a

Quarterback Nick Mullens could get his ninth NFL start on Sunday when the San Francisco 49ers visit the New York Giants at MetLife Stadium. Starter Jimmy Garoppolo will not practice today and is a longshot to play after suffering a high-ankle sprain this past weekend against the New York Jets. "I would be surprised if Jimmy gets back later in the week," head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters. "I know he's still pulling to do it. But Nick's ready to go, and if something happens to Nick, C.J. (Beathard) will be ready to go. "Nick's got a lot of playing time with us. 2018 prepared him for moments like this. He always does a good job in practice, and I'm excited to see him get his opportunity." The 49ers coach was asked how much Mullens has developed
