4 Keys to victory: Niners VS Redskins

49ers Redskins Football

By Niner Faithful

This week the Niners finish their 3 game road trip against the Washington Redskins in Landover, Maryland. For the second week in a row the Niners face a former Niner this time, Vernon Davis. The Niners last played in Indy in 2009 and lost 18-14. The Niners hold a 20-10-1 advantage in the all times series and have won 4 in a row going back to 2008(That was the game we named Mike Singletary our coach. Also I was at that game).The Redskins are coming of a bye week so they are going to be well rested and have 2 weeks to get ready. Its games like theses where people think we have no shot that we seem to end up playing our best football. Here are my 4 keys to proving the doubters wrong.

  1. Score a TD early

The Niners have had issues scoring touchdowns all year. Scoring first would not only give us a lead but also allow the Niners to play relaxed and loose. The perfect scenario would be for the defense or special teams to get an early turnover and put the offense to score an easy touchdown to get some confidence. And scoring early also allows the defense to not try to play perfect.

 

  1. Do your job

Last week there were too many break downs on defense that caused to big plays. And it’s never just one thing or one player. We lost containment on a bunch of running plays and 3rd downs continued to be a problem. And last week you saw to Colts go after Rashard Robinson and expose him as not a top corner (yet). The defense did get 3 sacks and a pick to save/set up the win for us. But overall the defense needs to play far better this week if we are going to win.

  1. Play more consistent on Offense

The Offense has been inconsistent all year. There are times when it looks really good and you start to dream about things that could be. And then there are times that you wonder why on earth we brought in (insert player name here). No one is expecting this to look like the 80’s in Kyle Shanahan’s first year but this will be the Niners 6th game I don’t think it’s too much to ask to score 2 td’s a game.

 

  1. Let’s see our Defense play together for a whole game.

11 snaps that’s all that Reuben Foster played in week one before he got hurt. Eric Reid went out the next game at Seattle. With both players making their returns to practice this week the hope is for the first time since week one we will have all 11 starts out on the field. Maybe not for the whole game but enough that I should make a difference.

If we follow my 4 keys and #56 and # 35 play there shouldn’t be a reason why we don’t get our first win.  GO NINERS!!!!!

Niners 53 Man Roster: Defense

NFL: Los Angeles Rams at San Francisco 49ers

 

By Niner Faithful

The 2017 Niners roster is set and as expected the Niners have said good bye to some notable names from last year’s team like Ahmad Brooks (one of the longest tenured players on the team) and Quinton Dial. To improve from the worst defense in team history the Niners went defense with both first round picks of this year’s draft adding Rookie Of The Year candidate Reuben Foster and the third overall pick Solomon Thomas. The Niners made it a priority to get defensive players that are all gas and no brakes and that when you come to their area they are going to hit you hard (just look at the drops Minnesota had after Eric Reid and Reuben Foster hit them a few times). The Niners are going to run basically the same defense that Seattle runs. The key to the defense being successful is the Free Safety and with Jimmie Ward missing all of training camp with a hamstring injury and the overall youth in the secondary this is the biggest concern going into the season. Although the best thing for a weak secondary is a strong pass rush and the defensive line is the strongest position group on the defense maybe the whole team.  With the offense most likely still needing more time to gel. The defense will need to play well the beginning of the season if the team will have a success this season if not it could be a long year again.

Niners 53 Man Roster: Offense

NFL: Preseason-San Diego Chargers at San Francisco 49ers

By Niner Faithful

The 2017 Niners roster is set and as expected the Niners have said good bye to some notable names from last year’s team like Vance McDonald (he was traded along with a 5th round pick next year for a 4th round pick next year) and Jeremy Kerley (was released on Saturday). The offense will be a work in progress but with Kyle Shanahan’s ability to call plays and the weapons he and John Lynch added this year the offense will be much improved from last year and will get better as the season goes along. The biggest key to the season is the running game. Kyle Shanahan’s offense is play actions based so if you don’t have the threat of a running game the whole offense will fall apart (look at the game vs Denver for an example on how this would look).  The offensive line is still a concern and as always health will play a big part in the success that the Niners have this year. But if the o line can step its game up ,we can stay healthy, steal a few games and get a little luck don’t be surprised if we are in the hunt for a wild card or maybe even the division.

Niners Recap: Niners VS Chiefs

By Niner Faithful

Football is back!!!!! This means that I can start breaking down players. In this week’s blog I am going over the Niners 2017 Preseason opener a 27-17 come from behind victory vs. the Chiefs at Arrowhead Stadium.

Rashard Robinson: After getting burned on the first play from scrimmage and missing a tackle on 3rd down that allowed the Chiefs to convert. Robinson recovered nicely on the next drive coming up with a nice 1 on 1 run stop. He also stood out on the next play taking advantage of the pressure that first round pick Solomon Thomas applied and picked off a pass and returned it 30 yards to set up the Niners offense in nice field position.

Solomon Thomas: In his first game action the 3rd overall pick had 20 rush snaps (9 from the edge 8 over tackle and 3 from inside) and produced 1 QB hit, 2 QB hurries and pressured a QB in to a pick. In 7 run snaps he had 2 run stops and 2 tackles. Now some of that production did come against guys that in a week will be driving UPS trucks, but to say that I wasn’t excited at what I saw would be a lie. I think you could see some flashes already and he’s only going to get better.

Reuben Foster: The Niners second of two first round picks this year didn’t disappoint. He played 27 defensive snaps and was credited with 2 tackles and a PBU. He was around the ball all game long. Even almost picking off a ball in the end zone.  He played both the Will and Mike linebacker and had 1 special teams snap showing he will do whatever it takes to be on the field.

Matt Barkley: Matt Barkley took over for Brain Hoyer after the started went 3 and out on their first 2 series. He played 35 snaps going 10/17 168 yards and no TD he was sacked once and had a QBR of 92.3. He moved the offense nicely between the 2o’s but was unable to put it in the end zone on two occasions. He’s experience may have helped him be the number 2 thus far but with CJ Beathard’s strong game it will take more than that.

CJ Beathard: Speaking of CJ Beathard the 3 round pick out of Iowa started off slow with he’s first 3 drives ending in punts. You could tell he was nervous, but as the game progressed you could see that he became more and more comfortable. Beathard got the most snaps out of any of the Quarterbacks at 41(Hoyer got 7 and Barkly got 35). And with the Niners down 17-9 he lead a 5 play 67 yard TD drive that ended when Beathard side stepped pressure and found Kendrick Bourne wide open after the corner in coverage  fell down.  The 2 connected again on the 2 point conversion to tie the game. Beathard lead two more scoring drives to complete the come back and end his day going  7/11 for 101 yards 2 TDs he was sacked twice and had a 133.0 QBR. I look forward to seeing how Beathard progresses this week. There are so many other things that I could get into but I that these were some of the most important.

49ers Open Practice 2017: The First Look of the 2017

temp1_3TL5696--nfl_mezz_1280_1024By Niners Faithful

Ever since 2003 the Niners have held their training camp at team headquarters in Santa Clara, they tired one year to have multiple open practices and it just didn’t work out. So they hold one a year.

Like in 2014 this year it was held at Levis Stadium with the added bonus of free food at drinks (and they weren’t kidding they had people walking around handing people food). It was a hot day in a Stadium known for being hot so the fact that the Niners didn’t to do what most teams would do and charge an arm and a leg for drinks says a lot. With an announced 25,319 fans on hand there was defiantly energy and excitement in the building. I noticed right away there seemed to be more attention to detail than last year under Chip Kelly the tempo was not as high as Chip Kelly’s training camp, but there was a nice tempo and you got the feeling that everything had a purpose.

Practice stared out with live field goals Robbie Gould didn’t miss one and hit one from as far as 52 yards. The punt returners during that part of practice were mainly Trent Taylor, DeAndre Carter and DeAndre Smelter with Trent Taylor looking the best. Next came 1 on 1 drill. I spent most of my time watching the receiver’s vs the cornerbacks I did see a little bit of the o line vs the d line and running backs vs linebackers. Trent Taylor’s shake and bakes was a site to see and kept getting reactions from the fans. Victor Bolden Jr had the lone deep ball of the period and new comer Tim Patrick showed some nice hands. Rashard Robinson had a few PBU’s and forced a few incompletions.

The running backs vs linebackers had a few plays that are worth mentioning. Rookie running back Joe Williams lined up agents NaVorro Bowmen and you could tell that Bow had trouble keeping up with Williams’s speed and if the ball wasn’t over thrown it would have probably been at TD. Rookie linebacker Ruben Foster had a PBU vs Carlos Hyde but Hyde did have a few catches also. Undrafted rookie running back Matt Breida make a great play and possible the catch of the day when he laid out Superman on a wheel route. 1st round pick Solomon Thomas seemed to have trouble working through double teams but did flash a few times.

I would say the “move the ball” period was the longest period of the day. The offense moved the ball well but was only able to score twice. K’Waun Williams had a sack on a cornerback blitz and Dekoda Watson and Tank Carradine split a sack. Camp star Marquise Goodwin had the top if not second catch of the day when Brain Hoyer under through him going up the right side line Goodwin made the adjustment and caught it falling out of bounds with Donate Johnson in good coverage. Matt Barkley had a nice touchdown to Aldrick Robinson who was falling forward vs rookie Ahkello Witherspoon. Then Brain Hoyer led his own long TD drive when he hit a pretty open Logan Paulsen in the end zone. The big play on the drive came when Hoyer hit Pierre Garçon near the left sideline on play action.

The best part of practice was towards the end when the team did the two minute drill. The physicality of practice picked way up right away when Eric Reid cracked Aldrick Robinson when he caught a pass and cut up towards the middle of the field. Matt Breida had a nice run up the middle where he showed off is speed. Ruben Foster had what would have been a sack but the refs decided to count the catch that happened after.

Quinton Dial had a nice run stop he had an unbelievable get off the ball and knifed though the line. Goodwin had another chunk play on a crossing route from left to right when Brain Hoyer rolled to his right off of a play fake and led Goodwin up field. The first team Defense ended their day when Brain Hoyer’s hail marry has intercepted by Eric Reid, but Hoyer recovered the next play but hitting Marquise Goodwin in the back of the end zone to end the practice. Overall I think the Defense showed that it’s going to be improved and surprise some people with the offense will not be elite I think there is reason for hope that we’ll put up some points and we have the right GM and head Coach in place to bring us back to glory.

15 Hall Of Famers and Counting: Who are going to be the next Niners in the Hall Of Fame?

d20bdc2c85aa172a164b833c9cf98116By Niner Faithful

Thirteen players(Joe “The Jet” Perry, Y.A. Tittle, Joe Montana, Steven Young, Jerry Rice, Ronnie Lott, Dave Wilcox, Charles Halye, Fred Dean, Hugh “The King” McElhenny, Bob St. Clair, Leo Nomellini and, Jimmy Johnson) one coach(Bill Walsh) and one Owner(Eddie D) are inducted as Niners in the Pro Football Hall Of Fame in Canton, Ohio. Ten more players(Larry Allen, Richard Dent, Chris Doleman, Kevin Greene, Bob Hayes, Rickey Jackson, John Henry Johnson, Deion Sanders, O.J. Simpson and, Rod Woodson) in the Hall have played at least a year for us. That’s tied for 6th among all NFL teams. The latest being Owner Eddie DeBartolo who went in August 2016. With the Hall Of Fame ceremony happening this Sunday I have decided to go over some Niners that I feel should be in the Hall Of Fame either already or will soon be eligible that should go in when they are.

Terrell Owens: In his prime there was no better receiver in the game than T.O. He used his rare combination of size and speed to torch defenses. He had the power to change the way a defense would play whatever team he was on. You better have your popcorn ready, because at any moment from any spot on the field he could make a play. His Touchdown celebrations either pissed you off or made you love him even more (I was the latter) but no matter what it got you to watch you just had to see what he was going to do. He’s 2nd all-time in career yards with 15,934 8th all-time in receptions with 1078 and 3rd all-time in receiving touchdowns 153. It’s not The Hall Of People Who Were Choirboys it’s The Hall Of Fame  numbers are what get you in and when your number 2 in most Niner record books as far as receiving  you needs to be in The Hall Of Fame.

Patrick Wills: When you think of Niner Linebackers you think of P Wills. He was the most feared hitter in the game in his era. He even hit someone (Brad Smith) so hard they threw up on the field. He was the player that gave the pregame speeches and would get the crowed fired up when he would walk out the tunnel. I could still close my eyes and see the play ageist the yams when he not only ran down a player that looked like he was gone but also punched out the football. In his 7 full seasons he was selected to the Pro Bowl every year and was a First Team All Pro 5 out of 7 years. He led the Niners in tackles the first 4 years of his career and was second every other year and was Defensive Rookie of the Year in 2007. He also stated every game he played in since his rookie year in 2007. He finished his career with 950 tackles 20.5 sacks 16 Forced Fumbles 8 interceptions and 2 touchdowns. All numbers that few players in his era put up. He’ll probably not get in in his first year of eligibility (2020) but should get in one day because he truly was the best linebacker in football in his prime. 

Frank Gore: Frank The Tank whatever you say about #21 will still be an understatement for what he meant to this franchise. He is the Niners all-time leader in rushing yards (1173) 100 yard games (39) most rushing yards in a season (1695) rushing yards in a game (212) 1,000 yard seasons (8) and Second in rushing touchdowns (64) For most of his career HE WAS the Niners offense. Teams would put eight in the box to stop him all the time close all the running lanes and Frank would squeeze through and still make a play (I still think if we would have given the ball to Frank we would have won the super bowl). He is the NFL leading active rusher and with 108 rushing yards he will pass Tony Dorsett for the eighth most rushing yards in NFL history. And with 1,037 yards will pass Curtis Martin for 4th all-time. Whenever Frank deices to hang up his cleats he should be a first ballet fall of famer 5 years later.

Roger Craig: Roger Craig famous for his unique high knee running style changed the position of running back forever. He was the first player in NFL history to have 1,000 yards rushing (1,050) and receiving (1,016) in the same season in 1985. He finished his 11 year career with 8189 yards and 56 touchdowns rushing and 566 catches and 17 touchdowns receiving. He is a 3x Super Bowl Champion (84, 88, 89) 5 x Pro Bowler (85, 87, 88, 89) and was a First Team All Pro in 1988. He was the first player to score 3 touchdowns in a Super Bowl (Super Bowl 19). He was been snubbed the past few years and need to go in.

Bryant Young: In my mind when I think of Niners D linemen I think of “B.Y.” He played 14 years all for the Niners was a 4x Pro Bowler, All Pro (1996), Rookie of the Year in 1994, and a Super Bowl Champion. He was leading the entire NFL at the DT position in sacks with 9.5 prior to his season-ending injury suffered in week 13 of the 1998 season having a metal rod put in his leg. Then year after in 1999 he had 11 sacks winning Comeback Player Of the year. He finished he career with 89.5 sacks 11 forced fumbles 6 fumble recoveries 29 passed defensed and 3 safeties. He ranks 4th all-time in sacks by a DT trailing Trevor Pryce(91), and Hall of Famers John Randle(137.5) and Warren Sapp(96). I think he was snuffed a lot of years for the Pro Bowl. If you look and he overall career and what he meant to the Niners  and his comparable numbers to  Hall Of Famer Warren Sapp he needs to be in the hall.

I know there are many more players that I could have named, but to me these are the ones that should be slam dunks.

NFL 2017-2018 Preseason Schedule

 

By: Will Stevenson

Can you feel it? Just imagine the droughts and sounds of the NFL season. Two-a-days, minicamps, veteran camps, seven on seven drills, torn acl’s, Non-contact injuries, position battles, and most importantly: Expert analysis of guys in shorts.

There are countless things that could irritate a football fan, but actual football isn’t one of them. So between now and the first preseason game, we have months to comb through every team, transaction and predict who will do what when the season rolls around. It will be exciting to see how the top drafted rookie quarterbacks find their footing on teams that made the playoffs last season: Chiefs and Texans. We all know how the preseason goes: Stars play in one or two games for a few series, then the backups. I also have an interest in fringe plays attempting to made rosters within the new safety guidelines for special teams.

So let us take a look at the preseason schedule. The competition will be early as starters make their way off the field after a few possessions, but don’t let that deter you from consuming the whole game. Position battles, overall team health, sheer talent, and a basic understanding of the team’s philosophy will be on display. So it’s not the Pro Bowl, but it’s damn near close for those first few series.

Not need to worry. Football is own it’s way, and it starts with the Hall of Fame Game on August 3rd with the Cowboys and the Cardinals.
