    The 49ers signed Tevin Coleman to a two-year deal worth a maximum of 10 million dollars on Wednesday. Kyle Shanahan will have a familiar face in his running back room as Tevin Coleman reunites with his former offensive coordinator. In 2016, the Falcons scored 540 points en route to a super bowl berth. Coleman finished 2016 with 118 rushes, 520 yards, and five touchdowns but it's the passing game where Coleman excels. Shanahan frequently found ways to exploit mismatches with linebackers for chunk gains. Coleman's receiving line was impressive in 2016 as he finished with 31 receptions, 421 yards, and three receiving touchdowns on 40 targets. In 2018, Coleman finished with 32 receptions, 276 yards, and five receiving touchdowns on 41 targets. The yards per reception...

Patrick Mahomes was spectacular to open the season and...

    A look back at San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo's Week 2 performance against the Detroit Lions during the 2018 season. Coming off his first loss as a starter in the NFL, Jimmy Garoppolo looked to bounce back against the Detroit Lions. Starting the season in Minnesota against the Vikings isn't easy for any team, but the 49ers had chances to win in Week 1. Garoppolo finished with a line of 15/33, 261 YDS, 1 TD, 3 INT, and the 49ers lost 24-16. The Lions were embarrassed in Week 1 by Sam Darnold and the New York Jets. Darnold threw two touchdowns in his debut and Isaiah Crowell ran for 102 yards and two touchdowns. Head coach Matt Patricia was hired for his defensive mind and his defense was nonexistent in his debut. Two things...
