Upon Further Review: Close, But No Cigar

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:

John Lynch, 49ers confident in Jimmy Garoppolo, but QB will have to prove himself vs. Rams

By David Bonilla

Even sitting with a 2-3 record, San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch has no shortage of confidence in his team's ability to step onto the football field and beat anyone. That includes Sunday night's opponent, the Los Angeles Rams. To do that, though, the 49ers will need Jimmy Garoppolo to perform a whole lot better than he did this past weekend against the Miami Dolphins. The quarterback was playing on an injured ankle, which impacted his play, but he's practiced all week and is expected to start against the Rams. "The doctors cleared Jimmy (before Sunday's game)," Lynch said Friday morning on KNBR's Murph & Mac show. "He was ready to go. They felt like he could protect himself." That changed after two quarters of play. Head

49ers-Seahawks: Shanahan says Coleman, Reed, Williams have 'a chance' to play but Packers game more likely

San Francisco 49ers running back Tevin Coleman, tight end Jordan Reed, and cornerback K'Waun Williams will get some work during practices this week. They each remain on injured reserve but are eligible to return, and the team opened their practice windows on Wednesday. Could they be ready to go on Sunday against the Seattle Seahawks? Head coach Kyle Shanahan says there is a chance, but the 49ers' Week 9 matchup against the Green Bay Packers on a Thursday night might be more likely. "I think all three of those guys have a chance this week," Shanahan told reporters on Wednesday, "but they're not going to be going (in practice) today. I know Tevin will get a little bit today but not very much. "We'll see at the end of the week with them. I'm hoping more

Film From the Field House: How the 49ers' Offense Can Build Upon Success Against the Patriots

By Bret Rumbeck
Oct 24, 2020

San Francisco 49ers' head coach Kyle Shanahan and I probably have very little in common, except a critical Xennial lesson learned in the late 1980s: if the game isn't working, take it out of the console and blow on it. The 49ers' offense was in dire need of a reset going into Week 6 against the Los Angeles Rams. There has been little sync and fluidity, except for the two wins against both wretched franchises from New York. Here's how the 49ers can take the right parts of their win, along with areas that need improvement, and springboard into Week 7. Use Tempo and Short Plays to Build Garoppolo's Confidence 1st Quarter - 1st and 10 at the LAR 24
