Random Shots from the First Win

Oct 10, 2004 at 12:00 AM


-The last time the 49ers lost to the Cardinals in San Francisco was 1978. At least one streak is still alive.

-How will Peterson's injury affect the contract negotiations?

-The 49ers have only forced 3 turnovers this year. They are -8 in turnover differential. Last season they finished #4 in the NFL and #1 in the NFC in turnover differential (+11).

-Note to coaches around the league: If your offense is struggling all you need is a game against the 49ers.

-Didn't it just seem like the 49ers defense tackled better under Jim Mora?

-At the rate that the 49ers are losing players to injury, I'm thinking of showing up to practice on Monday. They might need me.

-For having such good hands, Brandon Lloyd sure seems to drop some passes.

-Andy Lee averaged 42.3 yards-per-punt, despite two shanks.

-Josh McCown went four weeks without throwing a touchdown. Against the 49ers, he threw for three.

-Did Jamal Robertson start sweating Crisco?

-Maybe Dennis Erickson should start playing a 4 Tight End formation.

-Barlow sure seems to spend a lot of time on the bench.

-For a quarterback who makes quick decisions, Rattay sure does pump fake a lot.

-Eric Johnson for Governor.

-Detroit (Mariucci) and Atlanta (Mora Jr.) have a combined record of 7-2.

-With Arnaz Battle returning punts the way he does, why is Cedric Wilson even on the field for kick returns?

-Ken Dorsey doesn't look like much of a viable option now.

-Lloyd's touchdown catch was exactly what fans have been expecting from him all year.

-Please bring back the West Coast offense.

-Do you think Eric Johnson would agree to be cloned?

-Tim Rattay threw 57 passes.

-He completed 38 for 417 yards.

-That's more completed passes than any other quarterback in 49er history.

-He hit 9 different receivers.

-So much for the running game.

-Dwaine Carpenter is a beast on special teams.

-Too bad he couldn't hang on to the starting safety spot.

-Come on Ref; let Peterson stay out there for the coin toss.

-All those fans that left early are not real fans. Stay and support your team, you never know what they are capable of.

-13 receptions, 162 yards and a TD; I can't say it enough, Eric Johnson is Money.

-Todd Peterson is everyone's favorite 49er right now.

Can 49ers Trey Lance Be The First Rookie To Win A Super Bowl As Starting Quarterback?

By Marc Adams
Jun 4, 2021

As hard as it is to believe, no rookie has ever won the Super Bowl as a starting quarterback. You would think that after 55 years of Super Bowls, at least one rookie quarterback would have hoisted the Lombardi Trophy following his team's victory. But it has not happened. In fact, no rookie quarterback has even led his team to the game. None. In 55 years! A few have come close. Only three have led their teams as far as the conference championship game. In 2004, Ben Roethlisberger led the Pittsburgh Steelers to the AFC Championship Game. Mark Sanchez took the New York Jets to the AFC Championship



Window is open for Trey Lance to win 49ers QB job, but it won't be easy, says Shanahan

By Kirk Larrabee

Trey Lance won't be automatically relegated to a backup role at quarterback this season just because he's a rookie, but he'll have his work cut out for him if he wants to prove he should be the starter over Jimmy Garoppolo. The widespread assumption is that the veteran Garoppolo will start for the 49ers this season while the first-round pick Lance learns from the sidelines. But 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan won't be approaching the situation from that perspective once training camp gets underway in late July, at least not initially. Shanahan spoke about that and a number of other topics during a conversation with Tim Kawakami of The Athletic on the most recent episode of Kawakami's TK Show



Schein ranks 49ers as top worst-to-first candidate but questions quarterbacks

By David Bonilla
Jun 4, 2021

Adam Schein of NFL Network recently ranked the NFL's top worst-to-first candidates. The columnist went division-by-division and examined last season's last-place finishers, ordering each of the eight squads based on their chances to win their respective divisions in 2021. The team with the best chance, in Schein's mind, is the San Francisco 49ers. With a relatively clean bill of health this season, he feels the Niners should be much improved. After all, it wasn't that long ago that head coach Kyle Shanahan's squad played in the Super Bowl. "The return of Nick Bosa, in particular, changes everything for the defense," Schein noted.
