    Coming off a disappointing 2018 season for the 49ers defense, the primary area that needed improvement was the pass rush. The 49ers weren't able to generate consistent pressure with their front four, leaving their young and inexperienced defensive backs exposed on the back end, where they were routinely picked apart by veteran quarterbacks. Clearly, the 49ers brass recognized and attempted to address the lack of a pass rush over the past offseason, as they drafted Nick Bosa second overall and invested significant capital (both draft and financial) by trading a second-round pick for Dee Ford and extending him with a lucrative contract. The team's investment paid dividends early in the season, as a dominant 49ers defense led the team to an 8-0 start as the offense...

    As the NFL regular season melts into the misty past, let's make a startling statement: the 49ers are good. Well, okay, for most of us who have paid the least bit of attention, this isn't such a shocking revelation. However, to some, it's just too much to process. Don't mention the 49ers' success to some national media personalities. Too many "experts" still doubt the validity of their success this season. After all, why would anyone give credit to a team with a 13-3 record? That's simply delusional. The national pundits find all kinds of ways to express their doubts: For some, the 49ers' record was soft this year, which allowed for an inflated win total. Others concede San Francisco has a great defense and running game but just doesn't have the proven quarterback...

    When the San Francisco 49ers take the field Saturday at Levi's Stadium, the players will be ready. The same thing can be said for the Minnesota Vikings. They too will be prepared for their biggest test of the season. In January, players don't need to get up for a game. If you aren't mentally prepared for a game that brings you to the doorstep of the Super Bowl, then this game might not be for you. Knowing this, disregard the passing prowess of Kirk Cousins or the dogged intensity that Nick Bosa brings to the line of scrimmage. These two teams aren't far apart when it comes to pure talent. Each team has a formidable defense, solid running game, yet to be crowned quarterback, and very legitimate receiving threats. This Saturday's game will be determined by the men wearing the...

    The San Francisco 49ers will host the Minnesota Vikings in the first Divisional Playoff game at Levi's Stadium. Here we discuss the odds and analysis from a betting perspective. When: Saturday January 11th, 2020 at 1:35 PM PST (NBC) Where: Levi's Stadium, Santa Clara, California Line: 49ers -7, o/u 45.5 Minnesota Vikings The Vikings went into the Superdome as seven-point underdogs and shocked New Orleans, leading for the majority of the contest and finishing off the Saints 26-20 in overtime. After the regular season, Minnesota ranks 7th in Football Outsiders' total DVOA at 15.4 percent, 13th in weighted offensive DVOA at 2.7 percent and 7th in weighted defensive...

    The San Francisco 49ers have never had a tight end like George Kittle. In just his third season in the league, Kittle has established himself as the most complete player at his position and earned first-team All-Pro honors in 2019. In fact, he was so dominant this year that his grade of 95 was the highest score ever given to a tight end by Pro Football Focus. At 79.4%, Kittle had the second-highest catch rate for any player with at least 50 targets. His 6.1 catches per game tied him for the most among tight ends and his 3.11 yards per route was the highest mark in the league according to PFF. However, to truly appreciate Kittle, you have to understand that he's not just a game-changing receiver, but also a vital part of San Francisco's overall...

    The 2019 San Francisco 49ers started the year deep at running back. Even with veteran Jerick McKinnon spending another year on injured reserve, the 49ers finished second in the NFL with 2,305 total rush yards, 23 touchdowns, and averaging 144.1 yards per game. Veteran running back Raheem Mostert has been a jack-of-all-trades for the team. He led the 49ers in rush yards, touchdowns, and broken tackles on rushes with 12. He also played 199 special teams snaps,...

    As the San Francisco 49ers enjoy their first-round bye in the 2020 NFL playoffs, here's who Niner fans should root for during Wild Card Weekend. Although the San Francisco 49ers earned a weekend off by defeating the Seattle Seahawks in last week's 26-21 thriller, the team and its fans will be glued to their televisions on Sunday for the NFC's pair of Wild Card matchups. Today's playoff slate features two exciting games, beginning with a rematch of the Minneapolis Miracle, as the Minnesota Vikings travel to the Bayou to take on the New Orleans Saints at 10:05 a.m. PT. The NFL's 2020 Wild Card Weekend then comes to a...

    It's been covered like the last minute of no other matchup this year, this last standoff of the final game of the NFL's 100th season. With both playoff seeding and an NFC West crown on the line, the San Francisco 49ers faced off against their bitterest of rivals, the Seattle Seahawks, in a Sunday night showdown that had all the nation watching. At the conclusion of the game, the 49ers took the division title, Number 1 seed in the NFC playoffs, and a solidified confidence about playing at CenturyLink Field and rolled on out of town to start a two-week break. What they left behind was the proverbial monkey that had been on the back of the team since 2011, the last time the 49ers won in Seattle, and a gridiron of trampled Skittles. It was a finish few might have...

    With the 49ers up 13-0 at halftime, everything was finally going in their favor; the 49ers had not beaten the Seahawks in Seattle since 2011. Even better, it was the first time in two years the Seahawks had been held scoreless in the first half. The 49ers' defense stopped them on a 4th-and-inches run at the 49ers' 31-yard line with Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch at the helm. Nick Bosa threw Tyrone Swoopes out of the way to stop Marshawn Lynch on fourth down. The broadcast showed Bosa and DeForest Buckner laughing after the play at the idea of blocking him with a tight end....

    The 2019 San Francisco 49ers are NFC West champs and have home field advantage throughout the playoffs! It's been a long, long road, but the rebuild under John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan that started in 2017 is finally over. This team is for real, has a legit quarterback, and is ready to shine in the postseason. Here are my takeaways from last night's thriller in Seattle: 1) Winning in Seattle is Huge for Several Reasons What a finish! As if any of our hearts can take this amount of stress, the 49ers won in Seattle by a razor-thin margin as Dre Greenlaw tackled tight end Jacob Hollister inside the one-half line! It was reminiscent of Dan Bunz in Super Bowl 16 (who also wore number 57 and the final score in that game was oddly 26-21) when he tackled Charles...

    It doesn't get much bigger than this. One game for all the marbles. It's an amazing opportunity, especially when considering where the 49ers were the last six seasons. A season ago, San Francisco was flexed OUT of prime time matchups as the season was lost by mid-October. This season has been a different story as the Niners have been flexed into those very same prime time matchups and will have played six times in front of the nation. Despite overcoming doubters on every front throughout the season, having the goalposts of success moved repeatedly, dealing with wave after wave of difficult injuries, and most importantly, finding different ways to win, no matter the situation, the 49ers are 12-3 and control their own destiny. Now, they must overcome their longtime adversary....

    In a win dedicated to the late brother of C.J. Beathard, the San Francisco 49ers took care of business on Saturday night, edging the Los Angeles Rams in a 34-31 shootout, and will now travel to Seattle to take on the wounded Seahawks in a contest to decide the NFC West crown and the top seed in the NFC. Here we discuss the odds and analysis from a betting perspective. When: Sunday December 29th, 2019 at 5:20 PM PST (NBC) Where: CenturyLink Field, Seattle, Washington Line: 49ers -3, o/u 47 Seattle Seahawks The Seattle Seahawks' vulnerability at home this season continued in their 13-27 loss to the Arizona Cardinals, also losing Chris Carson, C.J. Prosise and Duane Brown for the...

    Down 10-21 in the first half, it certainly didn't go down like the 49ers' first outing in NFL Week 5 against the Rams—but they found a way to win. With less than a minute of play, key catches by 49ers receivers Kendrick Bourne and Emmanuel Sanders made all the difference, as they set the team up for a narrow 34-31 victory. Does Jimmy Garoppolo have the clutch gene? Garoppolo converted on two 3rd-and-16 situations on the final drive of the game. Wild #49ers stat: according to the Elias Sports Bureau, tonight was only the second...

    1) This Team is Resilient In similar fashion to the Saints game, the San Francisco 49ers overcame what at least felt like an insurmountable deficit, as they defeated the Rams 34-31. After giving up 21 relatively quick points and falling down 21-10, the defense appeared a bit overmatched as the Rams' offense made things look easy. It would be Fred Warner who made the splash play as he intercepted a Jared Goff dump pass and took it all the way back for a pick six and a 24-21 lead right before the half. From there, the Rams took a 28-24 lead in the 4th quarter and appeared poised to hold the lead until Jimmy Garoppolo and George Kittle led the Niners on a 91-yard drive that resulted in a Kittle touchdown. After Marcel Harris...

    After last week's unexpected loss to the Falcons at the buzzer, the 49ers will be looking to rebound and start their stretch run as they prepare for the playoffs. There are a lot of possibilities for a bye, winning the division, and even home field advantage no matter what happens in tonight's game. That being said, the simplest and most desired path for the 49ers to get where they want to go is to win tonight and win in Seattle next week. That will secure home field advantage and give them a much needed week off. The Niners will get Richard Sherman and slot corner K'Waun Williams back from injury tonight, which should give the defense a big boost. Offensively, San Francisco will be as healthy as it can be, besides players who are on injured reserve. One player...

    The San Francisco 49ers let the top seed, division lead and Week 15 victory narrowly slip out of their grasp like sands through the hourglass, losing a game on a last second play for the third time this season by falling 22-29 to the Atlanta Falcons at Levi's Stadium last Sunday. The Niners can't let injuries or excuses derail them for the final two games of the season, starting with a Los Angeles Rams team seeking revenge and fighting for its playoff life in a Saturday evening prime time match up that will be San Francisco's final regular season home game. Here we discuss the odds and analysis from a betting perspective. When: Saturday December 21st, 2019 at 5:15pm PST (NFL) Where: Levi's Stadium, Santa Clara,...

    After three intense games against the Packers, Ravens, and Saints, Sunday's loss to the Falcons was a major letdown as the 49ers faltered 22-29 at home. Despite the loss, the 49ers clinched a playoff berth with the Rams' loss to the Cowboys. It's probably not the best way to make the playoffs but... Me, being supremely calm about the #49ers loss to the #Falcons while the rest of...

    A week ago, headlines on the sports pages of the SF Chronicle echoed in newspapers across the country saying: "Raheem Mostert becomes 49ers' new lead running back." You were quoted as saying: "Raheem has earned it these last few weeks." "We need to give him more opportunities. He's given us no choice. I'm happy for him. He's been extremely impressive." Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo said Mostert's "burst" makes him special. Fullback Kyle Juszczyk mentioned something different. "His uniqueness is his decisiveness," Juszczyk said. "He makes his decisions very quickly, he doesn't hesitate, and he hits the hole." According to you, Kyle, it doesn't matter what makes Mostert special. "I'm not exactly sure what it is," Shanahan said, "but it's...

    1) Do Not Panic! I'm going to break down what this loss means at the END of the article, but for now, take a deep breath. The season is NOT over. (Yes, there are SEVERAL fans throwing in the towel - don't be one of them!) 2) This Ended Up Being a Trap Game As much as everyone knew this was a possibility and as much as we heard about the team coming out and not letting this happen, it happened. This was a trap game. I'm not going to criticize anyone's preparation and mentality, whether it be the players or coaches. They wanted to win this game and they knew what could happen. Sometimes, no matter the preparation, things happen out there and as a team, you can come up short. The biggest problem in this game was the 49ers were...

    The 2019 NFL season will have a variety of storylines, but one will be the revival of the San Francisco 49ers' offense. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and the ten men in the huddle deserve a hat tip for execution, but head coach Kyle Shanahan should be in the running for coach of the year. Shanahan has shown not only a mastery of any game situation but an ability to adapt his calls and strategy as the game progresses. When a game called for a ground attack, he grabbed running plays from a distant sandlot and put up 275 yards on the turf. When Garoppolo was heating up, and the 49ers' defense struggled, Shanahan leaned on the pass and...
