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.
For the 49ers to make the playoffs they will need a strong finish to the regular season. With the return of some key players and a favorable schedule, the 49ers are poised for a strong finish.
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.
Patrick Willis hollered at pal NaVorro Bowman a few days back to keep him in the mix, even if the star linebacker was a bystander as his teammates endured their Day 1 conditioning tests. Willis […]
NaVorro Bowman tore the anterior cruciate and medial collateral ligaments in his left knee when he went down during Sunday’s NFC championship loss at Seattle, a person with direct knowledge of the injury said Monday. […]
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.
In their final game of the regular season, the 49ers beat a Cardinal team that was playing for their playoff lives. In a game that they had to win, Arizona put up a valiant effort, but could not beat a San Francisco team that enter the playoffs on a 6 game winning streak.
The last game played at Candlestick Park lived up to expectations. The contest had it all, and was an exciting, memorable end to a stadium that has treated fans to countless thrilling moments in the past. The game produced a finish and player that will never be forgotten in San Francisco.
The underdog Atlanta Falcons gave San Francisco all they wanted Monday Night, but could not pull off the upset. In the final game played at Candlestick Park the 49ers sent off the stadium in style with a dramatic, playoff clinching win.
San Francisco has hit the midway point in their season and with a 6-2 record, they have to be happy with the overall play of the team. They have gotten a positive contribution from just about every member of the roster, and the only real gripes have to be a questionable offensive game plan to start the season and a free agent pick up that has not lived up to expectations.
There are a lot of things that will be needed to slow down the Atlanta Falcons offense in the NFC Championship Game. The 49er secondary will have their hands full chasing Roddy White and Julio Jones around, but the key match-up is going to be NaVorro Bowman and Patrick Willis vs. Tony Gonzalez. There is no doubt that Gonzalez is the greatest ever at the tight end position, but this is a match up that San Francisco can win.
NaVorro Bowman was never viewed as a dominant player, but after waiting for his chance he has made a name for himself. The young linebacker has quickly become one of the best to play the position, and can one day be as good as the man he plays next to, Pro Bowler Patrick Willis. Either way, the two form a duo that is second to none and has led to the 49ers dominance against opposing teams’ running backs.
