Dec 3, 2015 at 8:17 AM


When last Sunday's game kicked off at Levi's Stadium, about half of the seats were occupied...an indication that not even the 49er faithful held out hope that the home team would put up much of a fight. But after an afternoon of "Three Stooges" style antics from the officials and marginal play from both teams, the 49ers found themselves locked up in a 13-13 tie late in the 4th quarter...against a 12 point favorite.

But, as usually happens with bad teams, the 49ers couldn't hold the line...and ended up losing, 19-13. Close...but no cigar.

Here's my take on the critical elements of Sunday's matchup...and a look ahead at this Sunday's opponent, the Chicago Bears:

Maybe you shouldn't clear your Friday schedule just yet to celebrate the San Francisco 49ers' signing of tight end George Kittle to a long-term deal. Early on Wednesday, it sounded like the two sides were on the cusp of a contract extension when Grant Cohn of Sports Illustrated reported that the 49ers would announce a six-year deal worth $94.8 million on Friday, per a source that texted him the information. Not only that, Cohn had a lot of details surrounding the rumored contract. Items like a $25 million signing bonus, the impact on the 49ers' salary cap in 2021, and how much of the deal — $47.4 million — was guaranteed. Less

San Francisco 49ers players and staff walk by one another with masks over their faces and monitors around their necks, tracking if they come within six feet of each other. They add time to the start of the day, accounting for the process of just getting in the door. "Your morning takes longer to come in," quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo told reporters this past week. "You've got to go through all the testing, answer the survey, and all that. There's a lot of little pieces that go into it, but it's like anything; it's part of your routine now.
