As the 49ers look back on this season, it will not be positive. The team almost had a losing record, and missed the playoffs after 3 straight NFC Championship games. However, the teams awful season has to do with injuries than anything else, and a problem that shouldn’t haunt them next season.
Rumors are flying that the San Francisco 49ers might trade Head Coach Jim Harbaugh to the Oakland Raiders, and that’s just the icing on the cake for this Bay Area rivalry. The 49ers need a win to keep their playoff hopes alive, and the Silver & Black just need something to forget that beating they just took from the St. Louis Rams. The Sunday game at the Coliseum promises to be quite interesting.
The 49ers and Giants have to game plan for some missing players this week, but none that they can’t overcome. There will be several game time decisions, but no big name is really in danger of sitting this one out, other than Patrick Willis.
10 weeks into the season and the Saints and 49ers are relatively healthy. Both are dealing with injuries and could miss some players, but all in all will be full strength. The only real question for the 49ers is if Patrick Willis will play.
First up for the 49ers after their bye is the St. Louis Rams. After beating them less than a month ago, San Francisco should have no problems doing it again in front of their own home crowd.
The 49ers have just started their bye week and have already gotten enough news to last the entire week. While some of it’s bad, most of it’s good and San Francisco will be a dangerous team coming off their bye week.
San Francisco has a lot of players on their injury report, but the biggest is Patrick Willis. The 49ers will hope the defense can play well without him, and hope that the secondary holds up. On the other side of the ball the Broncos have to be elated with their injury report.
Few 49er fans know the name Chris Borland. This will change Sunday Night as he will be asked to fill in for Patrick WIllis and help contain the Denver Broncos offense.
San Francisco continues to get player back, and just in time. This week they face an Eagles team that is undefeated, and the 49ers need a win. Philadelphia will be without a few offensive lineman so San Francisco will look to take advantage and win th battle of the trenches.
When the 49ers and Seahawks meet for the third time this season the stakes could not be higher. The winner will move on to the Super Bowl, while the loser will have to deal with falling just short of the big stage and to make matters worse at the hands of their hated division rival.
