  1. Check out this guy who sounds more like Vedder than Vedder does.
  2. Im not a believer in strength of schedule since its based off last years records and every teams roster will change, but its the offseason and theres not gonna be much news before free agency starts, so here ya go. 49ers have 4th toughest schedule in 2020 The San Francisco 49ers faced a lot of adversity in 2019 on the way to the Super Bowl. They had overcome several injuries and endured one of the toughest second-half stretches in NFL history. Things aren't going to get easier in 2020. The 49ers currently own the fourth-toughest strength of schedule, according to I write currently because things could change — for the better or worse. Players like All-Pro tight end George Kittle believe the team has what it takes to beat the odds and return next season. "I think the work ethic and the mindset around the guys here, and the selflessness from them, I think that in itself will speak volumes," Kittle said last week. "And I think just our mindset going into this offseason, if guys treat it the right way, I think we'll have every opportunity in the world to go back." Below is the ranking for the NFL's strength of schedule in 2020. 1. New England Patriots (.537) 2. New York Jets (.533) 3. Miami Dolphins (.529) 4. San Francisco 49ers (.527) T5. Buffalo Bills (.525) T5. Detroit Lions (.525) T5. Atlanta Falcons (.525) T8. Arizona Cardinals (.518) T8. Houston Texans (.518) T10. Los Angeles Rams (.516) T10. Minnesota Vikings (.516) 12. Denver Broncos (.512) T13. Seattle Seahawks (.508) T13. Chicago Bears (.508) 15. Green Bay Packers (.504) T16. Indianapolis Colts (.502) T16. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (.502) T18. Carolina Panthers (.500) T18. Kansas City Chiefs (.500) 20. Tennessee Titans (.498) 21. Las Vegas Raiders (.496) 22. Jacksonville Jaguars (.494) 23. Los Angeles Chargers (.492) 24. New Orleans Saints (.490) 25. Philadelphia Eagles (.486) 26. New York Giants (.482) 27. Cincinnati Bengals (.477) 28. Washington Redskins (.465) 29. Cleveland Browns (.461) 30. Dallas Cowboys (.459) 31. Pittsburgh Steelers (.457) 32. Baltimore Ravens (.438) The 49ers will host the following teams at Levi's Stadium next season: Arizona Cardinals, Los Angeles Rams, Seattle Seahawks, Buffalo Bills, Green Bay Packers, Miami Dolphins, Philadelphia Eagles, Washington Redskins San Francisco will travel to play the following teams on the road: Arizona Cardinals, Los Angeles Rams, Seattle Seahawks, Dallas Cowboys, New England Patriots, New Orleans Saints, New York Giants, New York Jets Dates and times for these games will be announced in April.

  4. Six 49ers Land on PFF's Top 101 Players of the 2019 Season Now that the NFL season has come to a close, Pro Football Focus, compiled its list of the Top 101 Players of the 2019 Season. PFF's list is based solely on 2019 play with an "all positions are created equal" mantra that bases each player's ranking relative to what is expected from their position. San Francisco sits behind only the Philadelphia Eagles and New Orleans Saints in the NFC with six players to land on their list, with one 49ers player holding the No. 1 spot. Here's where the 49ers landed on PFF's list. #1 - George Kittle It was another successful year for San Francisco's tight end, who earned the top spot on PFF's Top 101 Players list. Kittle reached 1,000 receiving yards for the second-consecutive season, registering 1,053 yards on 85 receptions and five touchdowns in the regular season. Kittle was recognized as the PFF's top player in the NFL regardless of position, owning the best grade of any player league-wide. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo had a passer rating of 114.6 when throwing Kittle's direction in 2019. The tight end dropped just two of his 91 catchable targets all season, according to PFF. Kittle averaged 7.3 yards after the catch this season, the most among players with 50 or more receptions. He also broke 20 tackles on the year, which led all tight ends and wideouts. Despite his success in the pass game, where Kittle truly excelled was as a run blocker. Kittle was a huge part in the 49ers success in the run game, finishing the season as the No. 2 ranked rushing offense in 2019. #13 - Richard Sherman Sherman was back to playing his best football just two years removed from an Achilles injury. The ninth-year cornerback earned PFF's Best Coverage Defender Award in 2019, allowing a passer rating of just 45.3 over the entire season, including his postseason performances. Sherman surrendered just 227 receiving yards over the entire regular season. Sherman finished the season with 61 total tackles, two tackles for loss, 11 passes defended and three interceptions, including one pick six. He also recorded two interceptions in the postseason and a forced fumble. #28 - Nick Bosa Bosa exceeded expectations in his rookie campaign. San Francisco's No. 2 overall pick finished the season with the most total pressures ever recorded by a first-year pass rusher in PFF history (2006 – present). In the playoffs he added an additional 22 pressures over three contests. According to PFF, Bosa recorded an absurd 12 total pressures and a pass-rush win rate over 30 percent in Super Bowl LIV. The NFL's Defensive Rookie of the Year finished the season with nine sacks, 25 quarterback hits, 47 tackles, 16 tackles for loss, two passes defended, two fumble recoveries and an interception. Big brother, Los Angeles Chargers edge rusher Joey Bosa, landed at No. 29 on PFF's list #30 - Arik Armstead Armstead is coming off of a career season in Year 5 with the 49ers. Armstead ended the season with the fourth-best overall PFF grade of 89.8. Armstead led the team with 10 total sacks to go along with 18 quarterback hits, 54 total tackles, two passes defended, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery. Armstead is set to become a free agent this offseason, however the defensive lineman revealed that he is not averse to a franchise tag in order to keep San Francisco's revered pass rush intact. "I'm from Northern California. I've been here my whole career. I would love to be here and continue my career here," Armstead said. "I feel like we have a special team that I want to be a part of and try to get back to the Super Bowl." #54 - Jimmie Ward Ward is coming off his first season playing at least 16 games including the playoffs after starting the 2019 campaign with a broken finger. Coming off of one his best seasons in Year 6, Ward topped an 80.0 overall PFF grade for the first time in his career this season while spending the majority of his time as a free safety. Ward notched eight pass breakups on the season to go along with a sack despite not seeing the field until Week 5. Like Armstead, Ward is also scheduled to become a free agent next month, however disclosed that the 49ers have the "upper hand" in his looming decisions. "This is a team I'd love to play for. They drafted me. I got injured a couple of years and they still gave me an opportunity to show what I could do. I ended up getting 16 games this year – it was a little different but I got it. But it's a lot of interest right now from both ways. But they get the upper hand right now because I do want to be in California." #82 - DeForest Buckner Buckner appeared in all 16 games and amassed 7.5 sacks to add to 2.5 in the playoffs. He also recorded 4 fumble recoveries on the year and three forced fumbles. He notched his third-consecutive season with PFF grades of 80.0 or higher in 2019. Buckner, who was voted as team MVP by his coaches, has recorded 50 quarterback hits since entering the league, ranking 10th among all defenders over that span, according to PFF.
  5. Saleh says Thanks but no thanks to Michigan State, says 49ers have "unfinished business" Michigan State requested to interview San Francisco 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh for its head coaching vacancy, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL Network. Saleh, who was a defensive assistant for the Spartans in 2002 and 2003, has informed the school that he plans to remain with San Francisco. Saleh feels the 49ers have "unfinished business," according to Pelissero.
  6. 49ers hire new secondary coach The 49ers lost defensive backs coach and passing game coordinator Joe Woods when the Cleveland Browns hired him as their defensive coordinator. They quickly went to work looking for Woods’ replacement, and are set to hire former Dolphins defensive backs coach Tony Oden according to Ian Rapoport of NFL Media. Oden, 47, made his debut as an NFL coach in 2004 as an assistant on the Texans’ defensive staff. He was also there in 2005 when 49ers defensive coordinator Robert Saleh got his first NFL job as an intern with Houston. Oden also spent time with the Saints, Buccaneers and Lions before making his way to the Dolphins where he spent the last two seasons. He won a Super Bowl with the Saints in 2010, and coached with 49ers’ defensive line coach Kris Kocurek during his four-year stint in Detroit. Woods held two positions with the 49ers, including the job of passing game coordinator which was a position that only existed upon Woods’ arrival. There’s no word on whether Oden will take over those passing game coordinator duties, or if he’ll strictly hold the title of secondary coach. The 49ers are coming off a year where they finished with the No. 1 pass defense in the league, but the key for Oden will be developing some of the younger talent on the roster. San Francisco has several young players in the secondary who need to perform more consistently to carve out full-time starting roles. If Oden can step in and develop players like Ahkello Witherspoon and Emmanuel Moseley, the 49ers will be in a good place to continue possessing one of the NFL’s top defenses.
  7. Here we go, Revenge Tour 2020. Lets put 2019 in the rear view and focus on whats to come.
  8. Last time I was there, there was no Uber or Lyft allowed...I believe there is now though.
  9. Lots of good info in this thread so far, here's lots more:
  10. Dimes+. Nickels are just overachieving pennies, and pennies, well, they just suck.
  11. Watched it a 2nd time and loved it. I'm not sure why I didn't get it the first time around.
  12. Anyone who thinks the entire 49ers organization isn't 100% behind Jimmy is trolling for clicks. He's not going anywhere and I'd bet the farm he plays out his contract in SF and wins at least one ring.
  13. Bringing up Dee Ford's offsides from last year? What a petty thing to say, and he came off as really unlikeable in that speech.
  14. Well, I'm back after a weeks vacation. The sting is still crazy as this is gonna sound, I almost wish we would have lost the NFCCG rather than lose a Super Bowl. It's like the football equivalent of getting 5 of 6 numbers in the lottery - you're THAT close to being set for life, but at the end of the day, youre still just a working stiff. That said, I'm super excited about next season and beyond. This offseason is gonna be interesting.
