Is San Francisco looking for gold in Los Angeles?

May 24, 2002 at 12:00 AM


There has been little talk in the NFL these days, unless of course you live in L.A. Half of the NFL teams have already threatened to move there. The list is down to about five. The question is, do the Niners have a shot at moving to L.A.?

It does look pretty grim for the Niners getting a new stadium in San Francisco. But that does not mean they are heading for the "Southland!"

All one would have to do is point across the Bay to Oakland. The Raiders are more primed to leave the Bay Area than the Niners. Why?  Well it starts with a one billion dollar lawsuit the Raiders have against the City of Oakland. The Raiders beef: they want out of the lease because of lack of sellouts. So if the Raiders win and get to tear up the lease, what does that mean?  Well it would mean Al Davis would look for a new deal somewhere else.

It is no secret that Al Davis loves Southern California. Al wants his team in L.A. with a new stadium.  It is a matter of time before the Raiders leave Oakland. The only way they stay is if another A.F.C. team gets to L.A. first.

So you say, "What does this have to do with the Niners?" Well, "not much!"

But one thing I can see happening would be the Raiders leaving for a better deal and the Niners moving into the Raiders’ old home! That would be the ultimate "slap in the face" to Raider fans!

But it would solve all stadium woes to the Niners and their fans. I would not mind one bit!

Stay tuned Niner fans. This is the beginning of some serious NFL politics...

The San Francisco 49ers offense was impotent, even more so after losing tackle Trent Williams, before losing by a point at the Denver Broncos in Week 3. Will Kyle Shanahan bounce back and continue his regular season dominance over Sean McVay and the Los Angeles Rams in Week 4 under the bright lights of Monday Night Football?

49ers-Broncos: Jimmy Garoppolo still looking to get in game shape, get on same page with offensive teammates

Last week, following a 27-7 win over the Seattle Seahawks, quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo said that being under center for the 49ers offense after missing the offseason and preseason was "like riding a bike." On Sunday, during a mistake-filled 11-10 loss to the Denver Broncos that saw the offense commit three turnovers and a safety while converting just one of ten third downs, that bike at times looked like it had two flat tires. In his first start since stepping back into the quarterback spot after a season-ending injury to Trey Lance, Garoppolo finished 18-of-29 with 211 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. He also stepped out of the end

49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo says he's still looking to get on the same page with the rest of the 49ers offense after being away for most of the offseason and preseason but that things are getting better, slowly but surely. Garoppolo raised a few eyebrows after the 49ers' 11-10 loss to the Denver Broncos in Week 3 when he said he was still looking to get in game shape and still trying to establish chemistry with his teammates on offense following an offseason that saw him sidelined due to shoulder surgery and a preseason where he was working and rehabbing separately from the team while awaiting word on a possible trade. He spoke more about that subject
