Juszczyk says Garoppolo not wearing a knee brace this year will be a huge advantageby Kyle Posey on August 11, 2020 at 8:03 pm
Photo by Michael Zagaris/San Francisco 49ers/Getty Images The 49ers fullback also spoke about versatility, Jerick McKinnon, and much more San Francisco 49ers fullback Kyle Juszczyk and Jimmie Ward met with the media Tuesday. Juszczyk said the offense picked up where they left off. This is the fourth year of the team running Kyle Shanahan’s offense, so the team doesn’t have to “waste” time on your typical Day 1 and Day 2 installs, Juszczyk said. Juszczyk on how much versatility is being stressed in camp I think versatility is really the name of the game in Kyle’s offense. That’s always kind of been the theme here. Everyone has to know every skill position. You have to be interchangeable. Wide receivers have to know what’s going on in the backfield. Us running backs have to know what’s going on outside. That’s really always been the case, and that’s something we can use to our advantage this season in the case that some guys were to down. Who knows, you may be able to dress two or three receivers one game, and a tight end has to play that third receiver or a halfback has to play tight end. Whatever it is, I feel like we’re built for that. On Jimmy Garoppolo not wearing a brace I just know speaking as an athlete, myself, when you don’t have to think about something, and something’s not in the back of your mind, weighing on you, it relieves so much stress, so much pressure, and you’re able to play so much more freely. If he’s not thinking about his knee, if it’s not even in his head, that’s going to be a huge advantage for him. I know, just as an athlete, would make me play better, and I think you’re going to see that from him. When you don’t have to think about that stuff, you can just go turn it loose. On the two rookie running backs, Salvon Ahmed and JaMycal Hasty The short time I’ve spent with Salvon and Hasty, they’ve done a really good job. They’ve been on top of it as far as the meetings go. There are some advantages of coming to a veteran team. A team that’s been running this offense for a long time. It’s hard to explain, but there’s something to be said about when everyone around you knows what they’re doing. It pushes you a little bit to know what you’re doing, and things are a little more clear for you. When you get on an offense and everything is brand new, and guys next to you don’t exactly know what they’re doing, there’s a lot of hesitation. There’s a lot of muddy water. It can get murky out there. But when everyone around you is clear, defined, and knows exactly what they’re doing, it makes things clearer for you. I think that’s one benefit these rookies have coming into this offense, and also, they get a little extra time with coaches. A little more attention can be given to these rookies. It seems like an uphill battle with less practices and less games, but I do think there are some things that are working in their favor. On Jerick McKinnon Jet has looked phenomenal. You’d never guess the way he practices, how smooth he is, how he doesn’t second guess himself, how quickly he answers questions in meetings, all that kind of stuff, you’d never guess this guy hasn’t been on the field for two years. He just makes things look so natural, so smooth that I think there can only be positive things for him this year. I think he’s going to have a really good year.
Check out these official New Era 49ers face coveringsby Kyle Posey on August 11, 2020 at 6:01 pm
Fanatics These are the official New Era face coverings for the 49ers and they are much nicer than the last set of face coverings to come out. The new reality of our society is the ever-pressing need for face masks to help contain the COVID-19 pandemic. If you end up needing to go a place where a mask is required, then you might as go for some style with a San Francisco 49ers branded face covering. These 49ers face coverings from New Era are better than the ones we released in July. They’re thicker, don’t slide off, and are less irritable. I’m not sure if you have had the same issues, but some masks I wear have caused my face to break out. I’ve worn this fabric quite a bit and haven’t had any issues. If you don’t have a mask, in most places, you aren’t allowed in. If you have to wear a mask, why not represent your team? Every time I walk in the grocery store with this mask on, there is one specific guy that yells, “Hey, go Niners! Are you ready for Week 1? We’re gonna beat down the Cards!” Every. Time. It’s clockwork. It’s also hilarious. Check out the face-covering below.
The NFL playing on Saturdays is a “foregone conclusion” if college football is canceledby Kyle Posey on August 11, 2020 at 4:01 pm
Photo by Douglas Stringer/Icon Sportswire via Getty Images According to multiple reports, the NFL will likely move games from Sundays to Saturdays if college football doesn’t proceed this season College football has been in the news as of late as conferences are mulling the decision to cancel their season. For the first time since I’ve been alive, it’s looking more, and more likely, we won’t have college football on Saturdays. That doesn’t mean we won’t have football. Multiple reports have hinted at the NFL seizing this opportunity to move games to Saturday afternoon and in the primetime slots. Some have gone as far as to say that it’s a “foregone conclusion.” The NFL is watching what unfolds with college with interest. They remain highly intrigued by the Saturday television real estate with the potential absence of college.— Pete Thamel (@PeteThamel) August 10, 2020 NFL GM tells me he believes it’s a forgone conclusion the NFL will play regularly on Saturdays if no CFB.— mike freeman (@mikefreemanNFL) August 10, 2020 Over the weekend, ProFootballTalk reported that games would likely be moved to Saturday, even if those games weren’t broadcasted: Per a source with knowledge of the situation, the NFL likely will move games from Sundays to Saturday, if college football doesn’t proceed this season. It’s unclear whether the games would be broadcast, streamed, or distributed on a pay-per-view basis, but the league likely would backfill the vacant Saturday windows with NFL content. You’d think the NFL would take advantage of this opportunity to broadcast its product even more. By putting more games on TV, the league could make up for lost revenue due to not having fans in the stands. College sports generated over $804 million during its fiscal year of 2019, and it’s safe to assume the majority of that came from college football. As we await a decision from college football, it’s looking more and more likely that we’ll have professional football on Saturdays.
49ers fans are the least likely to attend games due to COVID-19by Kyle Posey on August 11, 2020 at 2:01 pm
Photo by Sean M. Haffey/Getty Images Via a poll from Casino.org, who surveyed over 1,000 NFL fans to find out how they feel about attending games and the NFL’s mandatory mask policy As we get ready for the upcoming season, Casino.org surveyed over 1,000 NFL fans to find out how they feel about attending games and the NFL’s mandatory mask policy. Here is what we found: 49ers (38%) fans say they won’t attend games this season due to COVID-19 — which was the highest among all fan bases Overall, nearly 42% of fans say they won’t attend games because they’re worried about contracting coronavirus 34% of fans say they won’t attend games knowing that face masks are mandatory Cowboys (26.5%) fans say they won’t attend games if they have to wear masks — highest among all fan bases The next closest fanbase to the 49ers who said they wouldn’t attend an NFL game was the Patriots at 35.4%. In order to actually attend, however, fans would have to get pretty lucky. The 68,500 seat Levi’s Stadium will likely face a drastically reduced capacity mandate, and the team has already shared that “ticket availability is not guaranteed for any member this season.” Santa Clara County (home to Levi’s Stadium) was one of the earliest adopters of large-scale event bans. Fans are also not permitted in stadiums until the jurisdiction initiates Stage 4 reopening procedures. Considering the state’s spike in COVID-19 cases, 49ers fans will likely face a long wait. Casino.org went as far to break down the percentage of fans by generation and political affiliation: With the CDC making face masks mandatory, the next poll question asked over 1,000 fans would they attend an NFL game knowing they’d have to wear a face mask. 66% of fans said they would still attend. The 49ers had the fifth-highest percentage of fans who said they still would not go to games, at 23.3%. Would you be comfortable attending a game this season with the current pandemic we are in?
Armstead: The sky is the limit for Bosaby Kyle Posey on August 11, 2020 at 12:01 pm
Photo by Michael Zagaris/San Francisco 49ers/Getty Images Armstead also talked about how the 49ers are working on improving their run defense in 2020 San Francisco 49ers defensive lineman Arik Armstead spoke to the media on Monday to discuss his teammates, speaking up about social justice, and where the 49ers could improve as a defense this upcoming season. Armstead, on his first impressions of Javon Kinlaw and who is taking him under his wing: Big, strong, obviously. Athletic guy. As far as who is taking him under his wing, I think me playing the inside, more of the defensive tackles are. He’s learning from everybody, but it’s on the more experienced defensive tackles to get him up to speed. Armstead said he doesn’t anticipate any changes to his usage this year. He expects to play on the edge in the 49ers base defense and kick inside during sub-packages. On where the defense can improve this year: One thing we talked about, we were tops in a lot of categories, except run defense. We were in the middle of the pack, so we’re definitely looking to get better in that aspect. The Niners run defense finished 11th in DVOA last season, which is above average. The defense finished with a 50% success rate against the run during the regular season, which was good for 21st in the NFL. What are some of the ways Bosa could be better, and what’s his ceiling heading into Year 2? I don’t like to put ceilings on anybody. I think very highly of Nick and think he can do anything he wants to out there. He’s extremely talented, and he works extremely hard. The sky is the limit for him. I know he’ll be more comfortable going into Year 2 than Year 1 with everything moving at a fast pace, so I’m excited to see what he does. What are some ways that you think you can be better, and what are some goals that you have for this year? I can be better in a lot of ways. I do a lot of self-scouting. I want to work on my get-off. Getting off the ball better. Rushing better at defensive end and combining that with continuing to rush well from the inside as well. Just becoming a better all-around player and building off the things I did last year and taking it to another level. What are your recollections of Dion Jordan with the [Oregon] Ducks, and what are your thoughts on him joining the defensive line crew? Man, it’s great. Dion was a guy I looked up to and have for a long time, especially in college, being a freshman, and he was a senior. I always appreciated him for sticking up for me and not being one of those seniors who talk down on freshman and try to haze freshmen. Dion was always my big homie. I loved playing with him in college and being able to learn from him. He played at a high level and set a standard for us in college. He paved the way for me and DeFo. Was there anything that has changed that’s caused you to become more vocal about social issues? Not necessarily a turning point. I think as you grow as an adult and as a person, you learn more information. You learn how to better use your platform and what’s your responsibilities. We all mature and grow, and I’m in a place now where I try to use my platform to educate people that I feel are important and provide common, everyday, relatable examples to people who follow me and care about what I say. I take that as a responsibility of mine, and I’m going to continue to do that. Any platform big or small, we have the opportunity to impact the people around us, whether you’re reaching two people or hundreds of thousands.
