Gabbert’s late-game throws part of offense’s disappearing act

Oct 2, 2016 at 4:45 PM--


Early in the second quarter Sunday, Blaine Gabbert had a 154.2 passer rating, the 49ers were 6-of-6 on third-down conversions, and they led the Cowboys by two touchdowns. What the heck had gotten into the NFL's 30th-ranked offense and its much-maligned quarterback? After their impressive opening, the 49ers returned to inert mode. Offered left guard Zane Beadles: "Have to really go look at the tape to have many solid answers on what happened." If only the members of the 49ers offense were on the same page in the final three quarters of their third straight loss. Trailing 24-17, the 49ers faced 4th-and-6 at the Cowboys' 35-yard line on the first play after the two-minute warning. Gabbert was flushed out of the pocket to his right and tossed an on-the-run three-yard completion to wide receiver Torrey Smith, who was immediately pushed out of bounds. Kelly said the 49ers (1-3) had three receivers run vertical routes on the fourth-down play, and he thought two were initially held at the line of scrimmage. Gabbert completed 16 of 23 passes for 196 yards with a touchdown and an interception and posted a respectable 91.9 passer rating. [...] Gabbert threw for just 87 yards after the first...

49ers-Cowboys: Fred Warner injured late in the game

It didn't look good for Fred Warner. The San Francisco 49ers linebacker went down in the fourth quarter and was clutching his left leg in obvious pain. It was a non-contact injury on the Cowboys drive that followed the interception thrown by quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo. Dallas ended up scoring on the drive. San Francisco still leads 23-17 at the time of this post. Warner played in 16 games this season, racking up 137 tackles, seven tackles for a loss, three quarterback hits, 0.5 sacks, four passes defensed, a forced fumble, and three fumble recoveries heading into this playoff game, per Pro Football Reference. Update: The 49ers announced that Warner is "questionable" to return due to an ankle



Mike McDaniel's crystal ball: 49ers coach predicts Jimmy Garoppolo throws the ball well in practice

San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel is not a fortune teller. However, he did peer into the crystal ball while speaking with reporters before Wednesday's practice. The 49ers are preparing to face their next playoff opponent—the Green Bay Packers—at Lambeau Field. However, their quarterback is banged up. Jimmy Garoppolo has been playing through a torn ligament and chipped bone in his right thumb. Then he suffered a right shoulder sprain during Sunday's playoff win against the Dallas Cowboys. For a right-handed quarterback, that is problematic. Garoppolo is still expected to start against the Packers. His offensive coordinator, Mike McDaniel, spoke with reporters before Wednesday's practice. What does he expect to see

49ers' wide receiver Deebo Samuel was named an AP 1st Team All-Pro for the first time in his young career on Friday. He is the first 49ers wide receiver to earn that honor since Terrell Owens earned his third nod back in 2002. There is no doubt that Deebo deserved the honor as he posted eye-popping stats during his 2021 campaign: 1st in yards per reception (18.2) 3rd in yards from scrimmage (1770) 5th in receiving yards (1405) 3rd amongst wide receivers in total touchdowns (14) Set an NFL record for rushing touchdowns by a receiver (8) It's hard to argue that Deebo wasn't the most valuable player on the 49ers' offense this season, and his versatility is largely the reason why. Not only was he the team's number one receiving
