Deebo Samuel already broke ESPN’s new receiving metric

Photo by Jamie Schwaberow/ A new statistic unearthed by ESPN to calculate the value of receivers shows that Deebo Samuel is in a league of his own. ESPN has taken advantage of NFL’s player-tracking data to create several new statistics in recent years. In their latest project, the ESPN stats team has created Receiver Tracking Metrics (RTMs), which use player-tracking data to give receivers a grade from 0-99 (50 is around league average and 99 is the best possible score) in four categories: Overall, Open, Catch, and YAC as ESPN’s Seth Walder broke down some early...

Peter King: Mike McDaniel was the Deebo Samuel whisperer

Photo by Michael Zagaris/San Francisco 49ers/ “Mike McDaniel was hugely instrumental in changing the direction of Deebo Samuel’s career” Whenever times get tough, people look for answers. More specifically, they look for an answer. They look for one thing or person that they can point to as the reason why things are going so poorly. In the case of the 49ers’ offensive struggles, that thing appears to be the absence of Mike McDaniel on Kyle Shanahan’s staff. Yesterday on 95.7 The Game, however, Peter King pushed back against that idea. “I think Mike McDaniel...

One change that will instantly improve the 49ers offense

Photo by Jamie Schwaberow/ Sometimes the low-hanging fruit is the sweetest The offense isn't supposed to be this hard for a team loaded with talent and coached by a great play-caller. Yet somehow, against all odds, the 49ers have scored just over 15 points per game this season. Fortunately, all of their problems can be easily fixed by doing one very simple thing. Quite simply, the 49ers are not getting the ball to their playmakers enough. Look at the most recent example on Sunday night. In the first half Sunday night, Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk and George Kittle...

Jimmy Garoppolo: I need to get in game shape

“I’ve just got to get back to where I was.” Last week, Jimmy said coming into the game was, “just like riding a bike.” This week? Well, it’s a good thing he was wearing that helmet because he crashed and burned. You know the details by now. The missed blown coverage on Deebo Samuel. The fumbled snap. The interception over the middle into double coverage. One third down converted, and not until the second to last drive. And oh yeah, this play, which will live forever thanks to a fantastic call on KNBR by Greg Papa and Tim Ryan. Papa with the call on the most...

49ers vs. Broncos third quarter thread: The Niners have to finish drives this half

Photo by Jamie Schwaberow/ So many missed opportunities The Broncos added a field goal to start the second quarter. Kyle Shanahan declined a holding call on third down. Some will say, “it’s better than converting 3rd & 17,” but that ignores the flow of the game and how dominant you’ve been on the defensive side. Plus, the Broncos kicker had already converted a 50-yard field goal this year. I would have liked to see Kyle Shanahan roll the dice and bet on his defense. Garoppolo underthrew Deebo Samuel on the ensuing possession. It went down as a 32-yard...

It’s time for Kyle Shanahan to turn back to Deebo Samuel at running back

It’s time for Kyle Shanahan to turn back to Deebo Samuel at running back

Photo by Michael Reaves/ With Elijah Mitchell out for 2 months with a sprained MCL, it’s time for Kyle Shanahan to turn back to the wide back. It's seemingly the same storyline for the 49ers every season at the running back position. Heading into training camp, it's a crowded position group with five or six players competing to make the roster. Then a few weeks into the season, there are injuries, and a position of strength quickly becomes a thin group that relies on Kyle Shanahan's scheme to bail them out. Now, a week into this season, running back Elijah...

Photo by Michael Zagaris/San Francisco 49ers/ The offense started to get going toward the end of the half 49ers RB Elijah Mitchell has been ruled out with a knee injury. Jeff Wilson and Jordan Mason should do the heavy lifting in the second half. Also, Deebo Samuel. Mitchell had six carries for 41 yards. Deebo had five carries for 13 yards before an explosive carry during the two-minute drill. Wilson Jr. only had two. At one point during the second quarter, the 49ers' defense had as many sacks as the Bears did first downs. San Francisco played the field position game...

Why The 2022 49ers Will Hit Their Ceiling: A Tale Told By Deebo Samuel’s Old Instagram Stories

He can catch, he can run, he can throw, and he can predict the future on his social media pages. In the run up to the 2021 season, Deebo Samuel was so motivated that he became motivating. Every pro athlete dabbles in social media self-help, but Deebo was a cut above with his Instagram mantras. The Tao of Deebo was profound, relatable, and, I’ll argue, prescient for this upcoming season. Take this quote about failure. Deebo was talking to himself after a failed 2020 campaign, fueling himself toward his breakout, All-Pro campaign the following season. ...

Deebo Samuel and George Kittle will continue to dominate, as Trey Lance takes the reins as starting quarterback. Coming off a heartbreaking loss in the 2021 NFC Championship game, the 49ers have retooled and reloaded.

However, you can come up with a persuasive argument that this team is better at drafting on the third day than on the first two days. You don’t get a gold star for selecting Nick Bosa or for Deebo Samuel falling into your lap. But you get a round of applause for finding George Kittle, D.J. Jones, Dre Greenlaw, Azeez Al-Shaair, Matt Breida, and others on the final day of the draft. The discourse about running backs...
