The 49ers have hit rock bottom. While they are still in the playoff hunt, they dealt themselves a crippling blow losing to the Oakland Raiders. The team lost this one as a unit with the offense, defense and special teams all failing to show up.
The 49ers travel to Oakland this week to take on the Oakland Raiders. This game means everything to the 49ers and nothing to the Raiders who will only look to ruin San Francisco’s season as well.
The 49ers went on the road for the second straight week, and earned their second straight win. It took a last stand by the defense, but it was important for San Francisco to win this game, and they did due to the play of their defense and running game.
The 49ers are hoping to get to their bye week with no more injuries. They continue to get healthier and only figure to be without 2 starters this week. The Rams are not much worse, but if without all 3of their injured players could find themselves short handed for this one.
San Francisco will be without Vernon Davis and Anthony Davis when they take on the Chiefs this Sunday. Kansas City will also be without at least one starter, and has several others dealing with some sort of injury. Neither team will be seriously undermanned for this pivotal matchup though.
All anyone can talk about these days is that Harbaugh has a problem with the 49ers locker room. This is not true and the proof is in the teams reactions on and off the field.
The San Francisco 49ers won their first game of the 2014 season, but they didn’t generate enough offense consistently on their own. Gifted four turnovers by the Dallas Cowboys, the 49ers didn’t score at all in the second half of the game. They’ll need to make sure they create their own opportunities in Week Two against the Chicago Bears at the Levi’s Stadium opener.
The Dallas Cowboys and San Francisco 49ers open their 2014 NFL season against each other on Sunday, Sept. 7, in a game with an afternoon kickoff time.
The 49ers’ acquisition of wide receiver Stevie Johnson is a win for both the team and player. San Francisco gets what they hope is the final missing piece to their passing game, while Johnson gets the chance to return home and not only play for a contender, but play in a market where his talents will not go un-noticed.
In the days since his rant, Sherman has moonwalked from his outburst. Well, kinda. He didn’t apologize for humiliating Michael Crabtree, but insisted he was sorry for deflecting from his team.
