Watch all the 49ers fans cheer and send off the team to Miamiby Kyle Posey on January 26, 2020 at 10:01 pm
Photo by Thearon W. Henderson/Getty Images There are a bunch of great videos out there I said this on Niners Nation’s twitter handle, and I will repeat it. Spend time with your loved ones today, and tell them that you love them. No matter how you feel about Kobe Bryant, four children will grow up without a parent. It’s completely devastating, and my heart goes out to them, and all the families that were involved in the helicopter crash. For those that grew up in California, this one hits home for us. Think about how he changed everything we did. If you were in school in the 2000s, you threw a piece of paper away, shouting, “Kobe!” Such a sad day in sports. On Saturday night, San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch asked fans to show up to Levi’s Stadium early Sunday morning. Niners fans did not disappoint. Here are some videos from the send off. If you have Instagram, a bunch of the players have great videos as well.

Pro Bowl Open Thread: Will you be watching today’s gameby Kyle Posey on January 26, 2020 at 8:01 pm
Photo by Mark Brown/Getty Images Will the 49ers? The 2020 Pro Bowl is set to kick off in a few minutes here. The event has changed so much over the years. Yesteryear was the best when we saw the fastest players racing in the 40-yard dash and the top quarterbacks throwing. It was great. The skills challenges are more for fun now. A few days ago, they had a 6-on-6 dodge ball tournament. The AFC won the first game as Cleveland Browns WR Jarvis Landry and Pittsburgh Steelers edge rusher Cam Heyward took down Detroit Lions CB Darius Slay. The ball went right through Slay’s hands, which is stereotypical for a defensive back. That was Game 1. The AFC was down in Game 2. It was 4-on-2 in favor of the NFC, then Landry caught two passes to take control. Landry made another crazy catch to seal the deal. Tune in to ESPN the Ocho to find out who won the “Thread the Needle” contest. Will you be watching this game? It’s weird that we only have two more Sundays of football.
49ers-Chiefs Super Bowl LIV: Where to watch?by Kyle Posey on January 26, 2020 at 7:01 pm
Photo by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images Throw your fellow community members a bone and help them figure out where to go So Pat and I have been getting a lot of emails from the community asking where in San Francisco you can watch the Super Bowl with like-minded 49ers fans. The sad part is, neither of us has an answer. I live in Arizona, and Pat is in the heart of enemy territory over in Seattle, Washington. Safe to say, we aren’t familiar with Bay Area hangouts. That doesn’t help anyone. I’ve got people telling me they are flying to California from the UK just to find a bar to watch the game, and I have my palms up on where to direct them. This is where you come in. Consider this an open thread to discuss sports bars, locations, etc. Either in the San Francisco area or across the country that is very pro-49ers. If you’re in Seattle, I advise checking out Alex Carson’s (friend of the site) Seattle Niners Faithful group. During the season, they have things on lock-down with numerous places to go without getting heckled, it’s also a large and very good group too. Pat tells me Eden Seattle will be the location for the Super Bowl (head to Facebook to get more info or hit Alex up here). So that takes care of the Pacific Northwest, we got a few hundred other locations. Drop a comment here on where to go so our other readers can find a spot. Even if you’re in the heart of the Bay, let’s hear where our out-of-towners need to go. Thanks, everyone.
Three prop bets for the Super Bowlby Kyle Posey on January 26, 2020 at 5:01 pm
Photo by Michael Zagaris/San Francisco 49ers/Getty Images Part one of.... I’ve spent an unhealthy amount of time reading the ridiculous Super Bowl prop bets. From how long the National Anthem will last, to if Darrelle Revis will tweet about Richard Sherman during the game. You name it; there is a prop for it. One is if they will mention Colin Kaepernick. That seems like a no-brainer as that was the last quarterback to lead the San Francisco 49ers to the Super Bowl. Here are three prop bets that I will be in on. 49ers over 12.5 points in the first half The first game of the season. The 49ers didn’t reach double digits in the first half in four of their first six games. Why? Kyle Shanahan was trying to find the identity of the team. That was when Joe Staley and Mike McGlinchey went down with injuries, and before we knew what Raheem Mostert was capable of. That was also before the team acquired Emmanuel Sanders. Since trading for Sanders, the 49ers are averaging a little over 19 points per game in the first half. That includes games with in-game injuries, familiar opponents like Seattle, and the weather that was in Baltimore. That’s a 12-game sample size, which is more than enough for me. Some may point to outliers like the Saints game, or even the two playoff games, but that’s Shanahan. Seriously, he is that good, and there’s no reason to pretend otherwise. When he has a matchup advantage, he makes you pay. We’ll get into the matchups, but Shanahan scoring single-digits with an extra week to prepare on the national stage in the biggest game of the year? With his ego? Come on. OVER. First half under 27 You have Shanahan and Andy Reid, both with stars at their disposal. The common thought would be this is a high scoring game, and we see fireworks from the start. That’s not how Super Bowls tend to play out. Players are tight, and the play-calling usually resembles that. It almost comes off as players are playing not to make a mistake. When Shanahan was calling plays for the Falcons against the Patriots in Super Bowl LI, that total was 28 during the first half. Neither team scored in the first quarter. Even scoring 21 in the second, that number still didn’t hit. I don’t know if we see a scoreless first quarter, but I’d bet on that than seeing a combined four touchdowns in the first half. I can see both teams doing everything they can to take away the big play, which could lead to 8-play, five-plus minute drives. Red zone defense will play a factor as well. My educated guess on the first half score is 13-10, San Francisco. I feel confident in the under here. Jimmy Garoppolo over 1.5 touchdown passes It was Jimmy or the Kendrick Bourne props. My guess is Bourne scores the first touchdown on the typical play-action slant. There’s one touchdown for Garropolo. The Chiefs are very good at limiting your top threats through the air. Whether that’s the No. 1, 2, or tight end. The same cannot be said for running backs and your “other” receiver. Kansas City is giving up 43.8 yards per game to the third wideout and is 21st in DVOA. That’s good news for Bourne and the middle of the field. This is less about Garoppolo and more about Shanahan. Garoppolo will have plenty of opportunities to throw two touchdowns. Screens, shovel passes, play-action passes, deep shots, you name it. Another reason it’s more about Kyle—which isn’t a slight to Jimmy G—is that he reads what’s going on. Shanahan knows what’s being said about his quarterback. Do you think he’s going to go into this game and not open it up? Going back to Shanahan’s ego, which, again, is far from a bad thing, leads me to believe we see an efficient game from Garoppolo that includes a pair of touchdowns.
FanPulse: Is Eli Manning a Hall of Famer?by Kyle Posey on January 26, 2020 at 3:01 pm
Photo by Rob Leiter via Getty Images “Hall of borderline good” On Saturday, we went over how the San Francisco 49ers weren’t getting much respect at all against the Kansas City Chiefs leading up to the Super Bowl. The other national question we had was asking whether recently retired New York Giants quarterback Eli Manning was a Hall of Fame or not. We polled the NFC East sites, and here were the results: Good luck getting a Philadelphia Eagles fan saying anything nice about any other team. Those results shouldn’t be too surprising. It’s a sensitive subject for most. When a player retires, we should be celebrating him and all of his accomplishments. Manning was an incredibly durable quarterback that could be counted on every Sunday. His career started well, and it seemed as if he was destined for the Hall of Fame. If you ignore the second half of Manning’s career, you could make a compelling argument. He was 19 games over .500 as a starter and won two Super Bowls. Eli was 19 games under .500, and the Giants only made the playoffs once after. Because everyone saw Eli take down the “godly” Patriots, he’s thought of as this legend. He made some unbelievable throws during the playoffs and in the Super Bowl, and that’s what people will choose to remember. I think there is something to be said for being a likable guy. Way back when Manning didn’t want to play for the Chargers—something I think should be accepted for all players and wouldn’t mind if more did—but the majority of his career Manning didn’t give people any real reason to dislike him. Also, he handled every situation the right way, and he may get rewarded with that down the line.
