Five key 49ers players during Week 10 against the Seahawks

Nov 11, 2019 at 7:14 AM0


Here are five key San Francisco 49ers players in this Week 10 match up against the Seattle Seahawks.

Jimmy Garoppolo - Could last week's game against the Cardinals be an omen to Niner fans? When the world questioned if this team was a possible Super Bowl contender, all questions centered on whether Jimmy G and was the weak link of the team. Garoppolo answered those questions with a 317-yard passing performance with four touchdowns and zero turnovers against the Cardinals.

This week the 49ers will go against division rival Seattle Seahawks and face their 29th ranked pass defense. This game will be another opportunity for Garoppolo to have a big game and to continue to prove his doubters wrong. As what Stephen A. Smith said on First Take, "Keep doing it".

Emmanuel Moseley - During last week's game against the Cardinals, Moseley had five total tackles, but he attempted to deflect a pass which resulted in an Andy Isabella 88-yard touchdown reception. However, one play should not ruin the second-year player's confidence. The former Volunteer will need amnesia because the Seahawks have two bad hombres named Tyler Lockett and D.K. Metcalf who both went for over 100 yards receiving and combined for three touchdowns in the win against the Buccaneers last week. Having succeeded against Odell Beckham Jr. and Brandin Cooks should prepare Moseley for this Monday night match up.

Dre Greenlaw - With Kwon Alexander out for the remainder of the year, the versatile former Razorback will step onto center stage on Monday night against the Seahawks. Greenlaw, who has nine solo tackles and one sack this season will be thrust into a larger role on the team's top defense.

"YO DRE", chasing the elusive Russell Wilson, who is having an MVP-type year with 22 passing touchdowns and one interception, could be a rude awakening. Wilson has also rushed for 203 yards and three touchdowns this season. So if you think containing Kyler Murray was a chore, doing so against Wilson will be twice as hard.

Arik Armstead - This should actually go to the whole 49er defensive line because it has to control the line of scrimmage and stop running back Chris Carson and quarterback Russell Wilson, yet we will reserve this for the fifth-year defensive lineman. In his first four seasons, Armstread has either been put on injured reserve or hasn't been an impactful presence. Going into this season, he had a total of nine sacks.

The 49ers picked up his fifth-year option and in Armstead's contract year, he has 5.5 sacks and is on pace for his first double digit sack season and is showcasing pass rushing abilities. This game against the Seahawks could be a good barometer to see where he stands against an offense that ranks fifth in the league and generates 395 yards a game. If he is up to the challenge, this will be a good chance to see his "Hungryman" sack dance.

George Kittle - Even when he hurt his ankle in last week's game against the Cardinals, the former Iowa Hawkeye showed he is a warrior and it was on display when Kittle manhandled safety Buddah Baker for his 30-yard touchdown reception.

In his third year, Kittle is considered the best tight end in the league. He leads the team in receiving yards with 541 yards. However, Kittle's skills extend beyond his receiving as his blocking helps the 49ers' second-ranked rush offense. The 49ers will need his infectious attitude and mentality on Monday night against the visiting Seahawks who have won 10 out of the last 11 matchups between the two teams.

    Sports has been my first love since I was 12 years old. At one point I wanted to play football professionally. I started to take photography as a hobby in my teenage years but this was when I followed sports. I started to listen to sports radio, I found my true calling and it was to be a sports talk show host. Though I follow football and basketball, I started to have a new love of cultures around the world. After graduating from San Antonio College in 2018, I worked for the Castroville News Bulletin before going to A&M San Antonio to get my communications degree. Since I have written for the Ranger of San Antonio College, the News Bulletin and the Mesquite of Texas A&M San Antonio, I met many people and went to a lot of events. My major milestone was being in the press box of the San Antonio Commanders game for the Mesquite and being apart of a press conference with the Medina County Sheriff and other local news outlets. When I am not doing anything, I like to watch old cartoons on the DC Universe, play video games such as Mega Man and the Mass Effect series. I have also created Youtube channel called "Anger Management" with my friend Aaron Donnell.

Richard Sherman: I think Jimmy Garoppolo will be with the 49ers during training camp

By David Bonilla
May 10

We know Jimmy Garoppolo isn't going anywhere until he fully recovers from his offseason shoulder surgery. Most have accepted that. The San Francisco 49ers aren't releasing him. By not trading him by the end of the draft, the 49ers showed they are willing to wait out the situation and see if a trade partner emerges after late June or early July, when the team expects the quarterback to start throwing again. Nick Wagoner of ESPN recently stated that once Garoppolo recovers, the 49ers will again get on the phones and try to generate interest in the 30-year-old quarterback. Of course, that's not



49ers rookie Danny Gray did this after dropping a deep pass during practice

Like many NFL players, rookie wide receiver Danny Gray strives for perfection. Unfortunately, no one can be perfect. For a quarterback, it's easy to dwell on that off-target throw. Maybe it's that football that slipped out of your grip for a running back. For a cornerback, that near-interception that bounced off your eager hands. For a wide receiver, it's that big-play throw that you couldn't haul in. That's what happened to Gray on Friday afternoon during the San Francisco 49ers' first practice of a three-day rookie minicamp. While others might try to push the slip-up out of their minds and focus on the next rep. Not Gray. According to Eric Branch of the San Francisco Chronicle, the rookie wideout fell to the ground and paid penance with 10

Undrafted free agents play an integral role these days for every NFL team, with the San Francisco 49ers certainly being among the teams to have gotten some significant contributions from the undrafted players they've discovered over the past few years. The 49ers haven't hit on all their draft picks during the Lynch-Shanahan era at a level they would have liked, but their undrafted free agent signings have played a large enough role to help make their roster one of the most talented in the NFL. Here's a look at ten undrafted players the 49ers signed and developed during the Lynch-Shanahan era who went on to make a mark on Sundays. 10.

The NFL will unveil the league's complete 272-game 2022 schedule on Thursday night at 5:00 p.m. PT. It is common for select week-to-week opponent matchups to leak before the official announcement. I've created this tracker to collect those leaks as the official schedule release time approaches. As usual, the San Francisco 49ers will meet each NFC West team twice. On May 4, the NFL revealed that the 49ers will travel to Mexico City on November 21 to face the Arizona Cardinals at Estadio Azteca—a Week 11 primetime matchup on ESPN's Monday Night Football. The 49ers will face the third-place teams in the NFC East, NFC North, and AFC East. The team is also slated to play the entire NFC South and AFC West. NFL Kickoff Weekend will begin on
