49ers rise to No. 3, fall to No. 14, and hold ground at No. 9 in wild Week 2 NFL power rankings

The NFL power rankings for Week 2 illustrate the sports media's split over the 49ers after their blowout-turned-nail-biter victory over the Lions. If you're confused about the San Francisco 49ers after their 41-33 victory over the Detroit Lions in Week 1, you are not alone. In Week 2, NFL "Power Rankers" fell into one of two general camps as it relates to San Francisco: Those who think the 49ers took a clear step forward as they trounced the Lions over the first three quarters of Sunday's contest, and those who, after witnessing the Lions' improbable comeback attempt expectedly fall short, don't quite know what to think. It was a rough weekend for NFL analysts, as many in a long list of questionable media darlings tasted their first defeats of the



'I just got to step up to the plate': New 49ers starting cornerback Deommodore Lenoir on his new role

A lot of newer young players will need to step up to the plate in order to fill the void left in the once potent 49ers' secondary after former starting cornerback Jason Verrett went down for the season with a torn ACL. Even prior to the heart-breaking loss in arguably the most important defensive unit this season, the secondary depth, especially the cornerback, was a red flag. Behind Verrett was an injured Emmanuel Moseley and two unproven rookie cornerbacks, who had size and skill concerns as they were taken after the first two rounds, not a great place to invest in a premium position. Fifth-round rookie Deommodore Lenoir however, has been a very pleasant surprise for San Fransisco, at least through preseason and Week 1 of the NFL season. Lenoir allowed a 0.0 passer rating



'Just got to keep winning games': Jimmy Garoppolo welcomes ongoing evaluation from 49ers coaches

Jimmy Garoppolo and his San Francisco 49ers are 2-0 and find themselves in a three-way tie for the best record in the NFC West. They hope to keep rolling this weekend against Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers. Garoppolo is focused on winning and isn't looking over his shoulder at the 21-year-old rookie quarterback waiting in the wings. One day, the offense will be Trey Lance's to command. Garoppolo isn't going down without a fight, though, and fully intends to make any potential transition a tough decision for his head coach, Kyle Shanahan. That's not to say that he has a bad relationship with Lance. On the contrary, the opposite is true, something Garoppolo repeated today during an interview on The Rich Eisen Show. The host was curious how the



Steve Young says 49ers' late game fade in Detroit may be "a sign of immaturity"

By Marc Adams

Former San Francisco 49ers quarterback, and current ESPN analyst, Steve Young spoke on KNBR Radio on Wednesday, as he does each week during the NFL season. Among the other things he discussed on the Tolbert, Krueger and Brooks Show, which included labeling the 49ers quarterback situation as "fraught with terror," considering how it plays out, was how the 49ers finished the game against the Detroit Lions last Sunday. Specifically, how they went from having such a huge lead to almost losing that lead. Much has been discussed on this topic already, and debates have been held around the question of whether coach
