49ers TE George Kittle hilariously explains why he loves QB sneaks

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle is fine with his four catches for a meager 17 yards against the Philadelphia Eagles because his team emerged from Sunday's game with a win. Kittle had fun, too. You could see him celebrating and enjoying his run-game blocks. He enjoyed one play specifically—Jimmy Garoppolo's quarterback sneak that led to a 17-11 lead. It was a lead the 49ers would hold onto for the victory and a 2-0 start to the season. After the game, Kittle shared why he is such a fan of quarterback sneaks. "I love quarterback sneaks. That's awesome for two reasons," Kittle told reporters. "One, I can't really mess a play up. That's awesome for me. Two, it's a testament to Jimmy, his toughness, and then those guys on the



Joe Staley explains why conditioning changes may be reason behind 49ers' injury woes

Is recent history repeating itself? The San Francisco 49ers have already lost two starters for the season in cornerback Jason Verrett and running back Raheem Mostert. In addition, a report surfaced today that linebacker Dre Greenlaw will undergo core muscle surgery and miss six to eight weeks. The early losses have to remind players, coaches, and fans of the nightmare that was 2020 when the 49ers suffered through one of the most injury-plagued single seasons in two decades. Even in 2019, when San Francisco earned a trip to the Super Bowl, it had to endure several in-season injuries



49ers-Lions: QB Trey Lance's early participation wasn't planned but always remains an option

Trey Lance throwing the first touchdown of the regular season for the 49ers might not quite have been what they envisioned before the start of their 41-33 win over the Detroit Lions on Sunday, but it turned out to be a good move nonetheless. Lance shuffled in and out of preseason games with starter Jimmy Garoppolo, so there was always a chance the 49ers could do something similar once the regular season started. It happened on their second offensive possession of the game when Lance was inserted deep in Lions territory for a running play, then once more to seal the drive with a five-yard touchdown pass to Trent Sherfield. It sounds like the decision to play Lance early on was a simple matter of in-game play calling rather than it being something that was planned in



Win over Eagles wasn't always pretty, but could it help propel the 49ers to lofty heights?

There will be more than enough things for the San Francisco 49ers to dissect and criticize once they get a chance to review the film of their 17-11 road win over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday, but it was clear after the game that they couldn't have been happier about the fact they were able to come away from the East Coast with a victory. And even though the 49ers still have their share of question marks after a 2-0 start to the season, it seems like they believe the win over the Eagles might wind up being the type of spark they need to have a highly successful run the rest of the way. The 49ers were far from being at their best against the Eagles on Sunday, but they delivered key plays on offense, defense and special teams when it mattered most to put
