  1. I put it in anything Messican and also in other foods.
  2. The best thing about the Ramsey trade is now the Rams dont have a 1st round pick (unless they trade back into it) for the next five years. Talk about mortgaging your future.
  3. Veteran long snapper Kyle Nelson is eligible to come back week 8 vs Carolina. Thank God. Hopefully he can work with rookie punter holder Wishnowsky and they can get the kicking game back on track after the Washington game. I just hope this isn't something that sticks inside Gould's head...although the last time I remember a 49er kicker with a case of the yips was David Akers back in 2012 when he finished the season making only 69% of FGs (worst percentage of his career) and we went to the super bowl that year. Maybe history repeats itself...
  4. Rams trade Marcus Peters to Ravens, and then trade for Jalen Ramsey The Jaguars are receiving two first-round picks (2020 and 2021), and a 2021 fourth-round pick in exchange for Ramsey, per the report.
  5. Slowing down Nick Bosa seems like an impossible task for NFL offenses thus far. In Week 6 against the Los Angeles Rams, the second overall pick added another four quarterback pressures to his season total — he’s now secured at least four pressures in every single NFL game he’s played in so far — and through six weeks, he ranks first among rookie edge defenders in pass-rush grade (83.3), pass-rush productivity (14.3) and total pressures generated (30). The PFF record for most pressures produced by a rookie edge defender is currently held by Aldon Smith, with 64 pressures back in 2011. Bosa is on track to record 96 total pressures in 2019.
  6. 49ers injury news: Kyle Shanahan provides updates on Joe Staley, Ahkello Witherspoon, Garrett Celek The San Francisco 49ers have been without starting cornerback Ahkello Witherspoon since his Week 3 injury and without starting left tackle Joe Staley since his Week 2 injury. Witherspoon suffered a foot sprain and was expected to miss "at least a month." Staley fractured his fibula and was given an estimated recovery time of about six to eight weeks. Although, the 49ers were hoping for something closer to the lower range of that estimate. Head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters on Monday, and after providing an update on players injured during Sunday's 20-7 victory over the Los Angeles Rams, he was asked for an update on Witherspoon and Staley. "[Witherspoon is] going in the right direction," Shanahan said. "I think there's a better chance next week (vs. Carolina), but I do not expect him to have a chance this week." Shanahan said of Staley: "I'm still hoping for Arizona (Week 9). That's where I'm looking at him for. Maybe a chance for Carolina, but I would consider that very lucky. In my mind, I'm hoping for Arizona." Shanahan also noted that tight end Garrett Celek (back) could come back in a couple of weeks. "Hopefully, he'll be fine with all the things he's got to get cleared on," the coach said. "If he is, we'll throw him right into practice, and see if he's ready to go." Fullback Kyle Juszczyk (knee) and right tackle Mike McGlinchey (knee) remain on track for November returns.
  7. 49ers power rankings for week 7: The San Francisco 49ers are off to their best start since 1990. The team currently sits at 5-0 after a 20-7 victory over the Los Angeles Rams. Members of various media outlets continue to take notice of the team's rise. San Francisco will look to build off the early season success when they travel to Washington to take on the Redskins on Sunday. Here’s where San Francisco stands entering Week 7: Dan Hanzus, 2 (Last Week: 4) "Quite a six-day span for the Niners, who stole the Browns souls on "Monday Night Football," then bullied their former tormenters with a convincing win over the Rams in Los Angeles on Sunday. Again, the defense keyed the victory, holding Sean McVay's once-unstoppable attack to just 157 yards of total offense. Los Angeles marched 56 yards down the field on seven consecutive runs to score the game's opening touchdown, then was held scoreless the rest of the way. The game's biggest sequence began on third-and-goal with the Rams one yard away from a go-ahead score late in the second quarter. The 49ers stuffed two Rams rush attempts for no gain, and Los Angeles never reached the red zone again. The Rams' next six drives after that goal-line scuffle totaled zero yards. The Niners have the best defense in the NFC -- maybe the NFL -- right now. They're for real." Vinnie Iyer, Sporting News: 2 (Last Week: 6) "The 49ers made a statement with their stomping of the Browns at home in Week 5. They made a much bigger one by squashing the reigning NFC West and conference Rams in Los Angeles. Between the pass defense, run defense, passing game and running game, it's getting hard to find any true weaknesses on this team. The 49ers have already surpassed last season's win total.” Pete Prisco, CBS Sports: 2 (Last Week: 2) "Shanahan and his staff have done an impressive job with this group. Defensive coordinator Robert Saleh is a rising star in the profession and Shanahan remains one of the best play-callers in the league. The schedule will get tougher in a few weeks, but the 49ers are far from close to being healthy now. They played without their starting tackles against the Rams and all-important fullback Kyle Juszczyk. When they get healthy, the offense will be much improved. That defensive front is truly special. It's the kind of dominant unit that can carry a team a long way." SI Staff, Sports Illustrated: 2 (Last Week: 5) "The Niners made easy work of their division foes and should cruise to 6-0 against the Redskins next week. The defense–whose oldest player is 31-year-old Richard Sherman–has only surrendered 65 first downs this season." Frank Schwab, Yahoo Sports: 2 (Last Week: 4) "It’s time to put the 49ers at No. 2 after those past two performances. Any doubts should be gone now. And I think they can get even better if they can get the passing game going. This is a really good team." NFL Staff, Bleacher Report: 3 (Last Week 5) “The 2019 San Francisco 49ers are for real. One week after shutting down the Cleveland Browns in a 31-3 blowout, the 49ers went one better—San Francisco blasted the defending NFC champions in their own stadium. The 49ers defense was dominant against the Rams. The team held Jared Goff to a jaw-dropping 78 passing yards and was perfect on third and fourth down—the Rams failed to convert on all 13 of their attempts Sunday.” Lindsay Jones, The Athletic: 3 (Last Week: 5) "The 49ers have now put together dominant defensive performances in back-to-back weeks, and the way they thoroughly shut down the Rams shifted the balance of power in the NFC West. The scariest part right now about the 49ers defense is how deep the pass rush is. Four players registered at least a half sack against the Rams — and it was a different four players than those that registered a sack six days earlier against Cleveland." NFL Nation, 3 (Last Week: 6) "The 49ers finished last in the NFL a year ago when it came to turning red zone drives into touchdowns. They've made some progress this year (they're up to a 46% touchdown rate from 41% in 2018) but still have plenty of room to improve. Getting their starting offensive tackles and fullback back from injury should help, but if nothing else, they must cut down on turnovers when they get deep in opposing territory."
  8. No laptop you can watch it on and either wirelessly cast to your TV or connect it with an HDMI cable? I've been doing the HDMI cable lately because the wireless connection seems to look more SD than HD.
  9. Yeah, we dont blitz often, the pass rush is getting it done with 4 guys most of the time. Ive heard several analysts mention that fact. Best DL in the NFL.
  10. More tidbits: Kittle continues to reinforce why hes the best TE in the game YAC: 205 (2nd) Missed tackles: 7 (2nd) Run blocking: 72.9 (75th) His raw numbers arent as crazy as last year, but hes more efficient than ever. Salehs defense has "won" 55% of their defensive snaps this season. The NFL average is 46%. The defense has also won 90% of their 4th down attempts. The NFL average is 51% Jimmy G is 13-2 as a starter, becoming the 8th QB in the super bowl era to win 13 of his first 15 starts. 49ers defense: - No. 1 in passing YPG - No. 1 in rushing TD (tied) - No. 2 in YPG - No. 2 in passer rating - No. 2 in 1st downs per game - No. 2 in PPG - No. 6 in rushing YPG The 49ers defense held the Rams to 56 yards passing, the fewest by an opponent since Week 17, 2010 at St. Louis Rams (22 yards). According to the Elias Sports Bureau, the last time the 49ers held an opponent without a third or fourth down conversion in a game was Oct. 1988 at the Rams (0-7 on third down and 0-1 on fourth down). Top 5 PFF Grades (offense) Kittle 85.4 Breida 76.0 Brunskill 75.2 Pettis 69.3 Toilolo 67.9 PFF had Brunskill as the only offensive lineman to now allow any pressure. Worst graded (offense) Richburg 51.0 Coleman 48.3 Dwelley 47.2 Person 37.4 Tomlinson 35.5 Three offensive linemen listed. When you run for 2.4 yards on 41 carries, it makes sense. PFF had Person giving up seven pressures. Tomlinson gave up four, and Richburg gave up three. Justin Skule and Brunskill allowing the least amount of pressure Top 5 PFF grades (defense) Ford 94.9 Armstead 90.3 Ward 89.3 Thomas 77.8 Ford’s grade is the highest graded game by any 49er this season. He’s been tremendous all season, he just hasn’t played extensive snaps. Ford was credited with five pressures, including two sacks, a stop, and a forced fumble. Armstead continues his stellar season with four pressures, including a sack. Ward didn’t allow a reception on three targets. Both of his pass breakups were huge. He looks very good in two weeks of action. Worst graded (defense) Warner 56.8 Jones 51.9 Blair 51.1 Alexander 40 K Williams 38.8 Williams missed a tackle, but he didn’t allow a reception in either of his targets. PFF had Alexander for four missed tackles. Blair was credited for a sack but only had one other pressure. Warner allowed some yards after the catch, including missing a tackle. SNAP COUNTS: Offense - 77 snaps QB - Jimmy Garoppolo: 77 snaps RB Tevin Coleman: 43 Matt Breida 27 Raheem Mostert 7 TE George Kittle: 64 Levine Toilolo 37 Ross Dwelley 32 WR Dante Pettis: 55 Deebo Samuel 47 Marquise Goodwin 47 Kendrick Bourne 22 Richie James Jr. 4 Coleman finished the game with 20 touches, while Breida had 17 touches. I’m sure that’s the type of balance Kyle Shanahan wants. Garoppolo dropped back to pass 35 times, so there’s your run/pass balance if you’re into that. Defense-52 snaps DL DeForest Buckner 48 Nick Bosa 43 Arik Armstead 40 Solomon Thomas 25 Dee Ford 21 Ronald Blair 15 D.J. Jones 12 Sheldon Day 6 LB Fred Warner 52 Kwon Alexander 52 Dre Greenlaw 4 DB Emmanuel Moseley 52 Jaquiski Tartt 52 Jimmie Ward 52 Richard Sherman 47 K’Waun Williams 27 D.J. Reed 19 Dontae Johnson 5 Williams hurt his hamstring, and Reed filled in admirably. Ward played in the slot with Williams out, and he is an upgrade in coverage. What was surprising is that Tarvarius Moore is an afterthought now. Sherman missed five snaps with a stinger. The Rams are a heavy 11 personnel team, so it’s no surprise to see Greenlaw and the one-techniques play so few snaps. Thomas played the second-most snaps he has all season, and he came up with a big sack. He also had a nice run stop in the game.
  11. That was awesome. Every time they showed him going nuts it made me go nuts. Yep, this team is built for football in January - excellent pass rush/defense, excellent running game...this is gonna be fun to watch. I still dont get why we signed Jordan Matthews and havent let him play yet. Hed be a big target for Jimmy.
  12. Sacks in 2018 thru 5 games: 9 (1.8 per game, 37 for the year) Sacks in 2019 thru 5 games: 17 (3.4 per game, on pace for 54) Sacks this season: Ford: 3.5 Buckner: 3 Bosa: 3 Armstead: 2.5 Thomas: 2 Blair: 2 K Williams: .5 Alexander: .5
  13. Re the bold: Don't forget about the Saints, who we play in New Orleans week 15. I told my GF before the 49er game that this game wasn't gonna be a shootout and it would be a low scoring game. Partly because of our defense, and partly because of all of our injuries on the offensive side. I didnt think we'd stymie the Rams offense as bad as we did though. It was impressive. It's been a while since I've been just as excited when our defense is on the field as I am when we have the ball.
  14. Week 6 tidbits: PFF pass rush productivity, 49ers have 2 of the top 5 in the NFL: 1. Nick Bosa, 49ers — 14.3 2. Kemoko Turay, Colts — 13.1 3. Benson Mayowa, Raiders — 11.9 4. Dee Ford, 49ers — 11.8 5. Clay Matthews, Rams — 11.5 Despite dealing with a chronic knee issue, Dee Ford has made his presence felt on the field. He earned an elite grade in just 21 defensive snaps. Pass Rush: 93.2 Total Pressures: 5 Sacks: 2 Ford had the highest Pass Rush productivity of any edge defender this week at 19.4 The 49ers’ first-rounders (Ford, Bosa, Buckner, Armstead, Thomas) combined for *19* pressures. (PFF) RT Dan Brunskill was the 49ers highest-graded offensive lineman vs. Rams, per PFF. Allowed only one QB hurry. When he showed up from the AAF O-line coach John Benton told said “I’d never heard of the guy, to be honest, but he’s pretty good." Not only that, he earned the team's highest run-blocking grade as well. Mike Evans, Chris Godwin, Odell Beckham, Jr., Robert Woods, Cooper Kupp and Brandin Cooks *combined* against the 49ers this season: 14 catches, 143 yards, 1 TD. George Kittle is the most efficient receiver in football, even more than wideouts. He came into the week banged up but still managed to catch all eight of his targets for 103 yards. He now leads the NFL in yards per route run (2.94) George Kittle 2.94 Stefon Diggs 2.92 Amari Cooper 2.91 Michael Thomas 2.83 Michael Gallup 2.80 Jimmy Ward is back! PFF grades for week 6: Coverage: 80.7 Tackling: 80.9 Overall: 89.8 This is the highest overall grade Ward has earned since 2016. The 49ers have faced five quarterbacks so far — Jameis Winston, Andy Dalton, Mason Rudolph, Baker Mayfield, and Jared Goff — and they’ve averaged 9.6 fantasy points against them. In their other starts (excepting Rudolph’s Week 5 when he got injured), those quarterbacks have averaged 17.8 points. Time of possession: 49ers — 38:52 Rams — 21:08 The Rams went 0-9 on third down and 0-4 on fourth down, including failing to convert on a devastating goal line stand. The 49ers held the Rams to: 7 points (t-2nd fewest in McVay era). 165 yards (fewest in McVay era) 56 passing yards (fewest in McVay era) 10 first downs (fewest in McVay era) 0 third-down conversions (fewest in McVay era) Football Outsiders updated playoff probability based on DVOA: 1. Patriots — 99.9% 2. 49ers — 90.7% 3. Saints — 88.1% 4. Chiefs — 78.8% 5. Ravens — 74.4% In December, 49ers play back-to-back road games against No. 3 and No. 5 Only the New England Patriots are allowing fewer points (8 per game) and yards (234.7) than the 49ers (14.3 points, 257.5 yards). The 49ers have scored on their opening 2nd half drive in all 5 games this season - the first time since 1961.
