By now, if you're a 49ers fan, you've probably combed the internet and read every San Francisco 49ers season preview that you could possibly find. With that in mind, there's very little that I could write that you probably haven't already read regarding the upcoming season from a broad perspective. However, I'll bet no one has rapped it to you though!

I started doing an annual 49ers hip-hop preview song called "The Best in the West" back in 2009, before the 49ers actually became that, and I've done one every year since. I don't just rhyme random player names together and try to have fun, but I actually strive to give actual insight, analysis and opinion in a song-based format, but I do have a little fun with it! So, with that in mind, here's a 2016 San Francisco 49ers preview unlike any others you've seen.

The views within this article are those of the writer and, while just as important, are not necessarily those of the site as a whole.

Longtime 49ers reporter asked if he's ever seen a rookie QB as special as Trey Lance

The Trey Lance Hype Train is racing at full speed — and probably nearly full capacity. It's amazing how a few nearly flawless practices — against the second-team defense — can influence training camp chatter. Matt Maiocco of NBC Sports Bay Area tried to slow down the Trey Lance Hype Train during an interview this week on KNBR. Of course, that was immediately after adding fuel to it. The well-respected reporter has covered the 49ers for nearly three decades. Fans value Maiocco's opinion. 49ers play-by-play announcer, Greg Papa, asked Maiocco if he has ever seen a rookie quarterback as special as Lance in all of his years covering the team. Maiocco's response was very telling. "No, not even close. Not even close. No,"



49ers' Kyle Shanahan: I don't know any rookie who can unseat Jimmy Garoppolo at his best

Peter King of NBC Sports attended a practice last week and witnessed why San Francisco 49ers rookie quarterback Trey Lance is creating some Bay Area buzz. "Oooooohhhhhhhhhh," was the sound coming from the rookie's new defensive teammates on the sideline after the quarterback connected with wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk. "Translation: This kid might be the goods," King wrote. That's the hope in Santa Clara. The 49ers gave up a lot — including multiple future first-round picks — to acquire the young passer. The team can be patient in Lance's development, though. It has Jimmy Garoppolo too. Garoppolo will be the starter,

The San Francisco 49ers announced several roster moves today as the team arrived in Santa Clara for training camp. Tom Pelissero of NFL Network had reported earlier that 15 NFL players have been placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list as teams prepare to kick off training camps around the league. Fourteen of those resulted from positive tests. Among those 15 players is 49ers cornerback Emmanuel Moseley. He is slated to be the starter across from Jason Verrett. Players placed on Reserve/COVID-19 include

Last week, Madden released its annual ratings for the top players at every position, which, like always, came with a barrage of controversy and angry fans. Trey Lance's rating was among those releases and he earned a 74 overall, behind the likes of Trevor Lawrence and Zach Wilson, who went with the two picks ahead of him in the 2021 draft, respectively. Lawrence earned a 78, while Wilson earned a 75. Justin Fields, who was drafted by the Chicago Bears, earned a 74, tying Trey Lance for the third-highest ranking among rookie quarterbacks, while Mac Jones of the Patriots came in fifth, earning a 71 overall. Interestingly, the rookie quarterback ratings came in the same order that these players were drafted this offseason. Lawrence went first, Wilson
