Niner Talk: The 49ers are so bad that...

Nov 3, 2016 at 8:27 PM--


Rightfully so, San Francisco 49ers fans seem to be really down on the franchise right now. The team is off to a 1-6 start. They have allowed a 100-yard rusher in each of their six-straight losses. The defense is on pace to allow 3,000 yards rushing and would be the first team to do that in nearly 40 years. Despite the very public pressure, the general manager wasn't fired during the bye week. The team's semi-brand new home, Levi's Stadium, seems to have more vacant seats than fans during games. The list goes on and on.

The 2016 season has been so bad that it has been difficult to find bright spots outside of the possibility of a high draft pick. Chris Biderman of Niners Wire has tried and tried. So why not have a little fun with the topic and depress yourself even more? Our forum members have started a thread, asking fans to complete the sentence, "We're so bad that..."

For your amusement – and hopefully not to bring you down any further – below are some of the answers from the thread, which can be found in its entirety here.

"We're so bad that I kind of miss Tomsula."

"We are so bad that the University of Michigan is trying to schedule us as one of their early season cupcake warm-up games next year."

"...Trent is scouting an Akron vs Toledo game."

"We're so bad that I miss the Singletary era."

"We're so bad that the most interesting part of our season has been the Kaepernick protest."

"We're so bad I miss having Ken Dorsey as QB"

"I miss Jimmy Raye's offense."

"We're so bad that if the Jags do fire Gus Bradley I hope we hire him to be our next D coordinator."

'That's something we can't do again': Bad luck with injuries altered 49ers' draft strategy

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers had a championship roster last season yet finished with just six victories. Injuries completely ravaged the roster. By the end of Week 2, injuries had transformed the depth chart to a point that seemed impossible to overcome. Still, the team managed to compete week in and week out, but its lofty Super Bowl hopes were long gone. The poor luck forced head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch to rethink their draft strategy, putting more of an emphasis on health than they had in past seasons. You could tell that was the case from the 49ers' latest draft class, made up of eight prospects with fairly clean injury histories. "Not just counting here but anywhere I've been in my career, you've got a lot of history in different



49ers' Kyle Shanahan and John Lynch talk Jimmy Garoppolo, Richard Sherman, and Nick Mullens

Jimmy Garoppolo's days with the San Francisco 49ers may be numbered. He will likely remain with the team through the 2021 season. However, after drafting Trey Lance of North Dakota State with the No. 3 overall pick, it is clear that a change is on the horizon for the Niners. While most felt that might create an awkward situation in the quarterback room, Garoppolo has made the best of it. In fact, Garoppolo was the first 49ers player who reached out to Lance after the incoming rookie heard his name called in Cleveland, Ohio. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch spoke to the media on Friday night after the team was done making its Day 2 picks. They were asked if they spoke with Garoppolo after selecting Lance. Obviously, the quarterback knew the



49ers own 10th-best roster ahead of draft in PFF ranking

Pro Football Focus recently completed its positional-by-position rankings for all 32 NFL teams. Now, it's time for analyst Anthony Treash to combine everything and determine the league's best overall rosters, ranking each from best to worst. "The list was heavily influenced by the two-year PFF WAR (wins above replacement) of the players who are currently on each roster, but it also had some subjective projection involved for those younger, emerging talents," Treash explained. Obviously, things may change slightly in about a week, but for now, this is where each squad stands in Pro Football Focus' eyes as the league heads into the 2021 NFL



49ers beat writer shares interesting tidbit about Mike Shanahan's draft influence

By David Bonilla

It's pretty safe to assume that Kyle Shanahan's father, longtime NFL head coach Mike Shanahan, has had at least some influence on the quarterback evaluation process leading up to next week's draft. Maybe even a significant influence. Ultimately, it will be Kyle Shanahan's decision, with input from his father, general manager John Lynch, and other team personnel. Matt Barrows of The Athletic recently answered questions from fans and was asked about Mike Shanahan's influence on the San Francisco 49ers' looming decision. "Put it this way: Earlier this month, I called Mike to talk about his quarterback
