NFC West recap: The 49ers supporting cast will carry them to a divisional title

NFC West recap: The 49ers supporting cast will carry them to a divisional title

Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/ Wasn’t that always the case? Sunday’s victory over the Miami Dolphins was a costly one. For the second time this season, the 49ers lost their starting QB to an injury. However, Brock Purdy filled in admirably. Purdy showed poise, confidence, and a grasp of the offense. Nonetheless, it’s fair to wonder what the offense will look like moving forward. San Francisco 49ers - 8-4, vs. Tampa Bay, @ Seattle (TNF), vs. Commanders Does Tom Brady return to the bay for the final time? Maybe? The 49ers are riding high following five consecutive...

Jimmy Garoppolo and the 49ers potential IR conundrum

Photo by Ezra Shaw/ Plus, if one report is true, he may be back just as the playoffs begin Nothing is ever simple for your San Francisco 49ers. As the team gears up for its stretch run with its third-string quarterback, they face some difficult roster decisions that could have ripple effects during the most important time of the year. The NFL allows you to activate up to eight players from injured reserve per season. So far, the 49ers have already used six of those spots on Elijah Mitchell, Jimmie Ward, Azeez Al-Shaair, Jordan Willis, Curtis Robinson, and Colton...

Your daily San Francisco 49ers news for Wednesday, December 7th, 2022 Jimmy Garoppolo does not need surgery, is ‘potential playoff contributor’ [report] “According to Schefter, Garoppolo does not have a Lisfranc injury and will not need surgery despite breaking a few bones in his foot. If the rehab goes well, Garoppolo could return in the next 7-8 weeks, giving him an outside chance to return for the playoffs. The regular season ends in five weeks, meaning that Garoppolo could make a return for a divisional playoff game or NFC championship game.” Matt Maiocco: 49ers...

Rams claim Baker Mayfield; the 49ers did NOT put in a claim

Photo by Jared C. Tilton/ The Niners elected to go with Josh Johnson instead The 49ers did not put in a claim for Baker Mayfield. You know who did? The Los Angeles Rams. They recently placed quarterback Matthew Stafford on injured reserve, so there was a need. Reports are surfacing that Mayfield could play for the Rams as soon as Thursday night. According to NBC Sports’ Matt Maiocco, Mayfield would have gone unclaimed and passed through waivers had he reached the 49ers, who had just signed Josh Johnson to a one-year deal. Unfortunately for the 49ers, they’ve already...

Jimmy Garoppolo could return in 7-8 weeks after doctors conclude he doesn’t need surgery

Photo by Michael Zagaris/San Francisco 49ers/ That would fall in line with the timeline of the Divisional Round/NFC Championship game ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported that doctors concluded Tuesday that 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo does not need surgery on his foot, and it is not the dreaded Lisfranc injury. Schefter added that Garoppolo has a chance to return, if fully healthy and his rehab goes smoothly, for the playoffs. The timeframe Schefter used was 7-8 weeks. Schefter’s tweet was loaded with caveats. He said “could,” “chance,” and “potential.”...

49ers sign QB Josh Johnson to a one-year deal

Photo by Thomas B. Shea/ This likely takes the team out of the Baker Mayfield “sweepstakes” On Sunday night, the 49ers signed quarterback Josh Johnson to the practice squad after Jimmy Garoppolo broke his foot during the Miami Dolphins game. On Tuesday afternoon, the team announced they signed Johnson to a one-year deal. Johnson has been with the Niners in ‘12, ‘14, ‘20, and now ‘22. They should leave his locker open until Johnson retires. Head coach Kyle Shanahan was asked Monday afternoon why the team was interested in Johnson’s services: “Just having...

Photo by Michael Zagaris/San Francisco 49ers/ Jason Aponte and Steph Sanchez take a trip down memory lane Now that we’re all bucked in for the Brock Purdy show for the rest of the season, it’s worth going back in time to training camp in July to remember what we saw from Mr. Irrelevant when he was actually able to take some reps on a somewhat consistent basis. Both Jason Aponte and Steph Sanchez were at training camp, and they dove into their notes from that time on today’s Bully Ball podcast. “I wasn’t overly impressed,” Aponte said, “What I did think he...

Drake Jackson has the most batted balls by an edge rusher this season

Photo by Michael Zagaris/San Francisco 49ers/ When you find out his snap counts compared to the other leaders, it’s pretty impressive what the 49ers' second-round pick is doing in limited action Throughout his rookie season, Drake Jackson has consistently flashed his plus athletic traits, highlighting why the 49ers were so ecstatic about landing him in the back end of the second round in April’s draft. Jackson has the bend and technical expertise to wreak havoc on opposing quarterbacks as a pass rusher. Still, the area where he has disrupted them the most thus far...

Would you believe me if I had told you when Brock Purdy entered the game for an injured Jimmy Garoppolo Sunday that he’d be favored over Tom Brady the following week? Well, according to DraftKings SportsBook, the Niners are 3.5-point favorites over the Bucs next Sunday, with the total on the game set at 37.5. And after watching Monday Night Football, it makes sense. Tampa Bay...

One of those options is Baker Mayfield, who asked for and was granted his release from Carolina. “We look into everything,” Kyle Shanahan said when asked about the team’s interest in Mayfield yesterday, “But that’d surprise me right now.

Tampa Bay has not played well this year, and the loss of Bruce Arians has reared its ugly head offensively. Still, the Bucs control their destiny for the remainder of the season. They face Andy Dalton, a team that could not score against the Niners a week ago, and the 4-8 Saints. Despite being four games below .500, New Orleans would be just a half-game out of first place if...
