Tomsula Backs Kaepernick After 4-Interception Performance
Team Grades: 49ers Get Throttled By Cardinals On Way To 'F' PerformanceWe knew it might get ugly for the San Francisco 49ers against the Arizona Cardinals on the road Sunday, but we didn't think it would be that bad. The Cards jumped out to a 14-0 lead before their offense ever took the field, thanks to 49ers turnovers, and it was all downhill from there. Arizona returned two interceptions for touchdowns and registered a safety for the first time in franchise history since 1949. Yes, it was a historic day for the 49ers and their opponent.

49ers Need To Establish Identity This Week In Tough Road Test Against CardinalsThe first two weeks of the NFL season have produced opposite results for the San Francisco 49ers, and in Week 3, the team faces a stiff challenge on the road against the Arizona Cardinals.
Running The Ball Well And A Strong Defense Could Be Hallmarks Of 49ers SeasonComing off a stunning performance in a 20-3 win over the Minnesota Vikings at home in Monday Night Football's doubleheader in Week 1, the San Francisco 49ers seem to have rebuilt themselves a little bit in the transition from Jim Harbaugh to Jim Tomsula. As the team prepares to take the show on the road for Week 2 in Pittsburgh, it's clear that running back Carlos Hyde will be the focus of the offense, and the defense is every bit as feisty as it was during the deep playoff runs of 2011-13.

Team Grades: 49ers Defense Better Than Anyone Expected In Monday Night WinFor all the changes in personnel and the unfavorable matchups against the Minnesota Vikings, the San Francisco 49ers defense really played like it was 2011 on Monday night in the season-opening game. The passing game still has miles to go, but running back Carlos Hyde demonstrated he's more than capable of replacing Frank Gore in the lineup. Overall, it was a great night for the 49ers as they started the 2015 NFL season with a surprisingly easy victory.

Injury Report: 49ers Have Few Injury Concerns Heading Into Monday Night OpenerEvery NFL team should start the season this healthy: The San Francisco 49ers have one injury concern heading into the regular-season opener on Monday night against the Minnesota Vikings at Levi's Stadium. Cornerback Tramaine Brock—nominally the team's No. 1 corner in what is an otherwise weak secondary—has a hamstring issue, and he is listed as questionable for the game. The Niners front seven will look very strange to fans of the team, in terms of personnel changes, so Brock's presence in the defensive backfield is a big one for San Francisco.
The Post-Harbaugh Era Begins With A Lot Of Doubt And UncertaintyAfter almost-unmatched success during the first three years of former coach Jim Harbaugh's tenure in San Francisco, the 49ers crashed a bit last year, finishing 8-8. Now, with Harbaugh gone, the season ahead has many questions. The 49ers roster has lost much talent, especially on the defensive side of the ball, and there are questions about the future of the franchise as new coach Jim Tomsula faces a tough season ahead. Super Bowl 50 will be at Levi's Stadium, but San Francisco is a serious long shot to be playing in the game itself.
