Daily Madden: 49ers Need A Confidence Boost Of Win In Arizona

“When you lose, you not only lose a game, but you lose a little confidence and you lose a little swag,” John Madden told the KCBS Radio morning crew. “(The 49ers) have to get the win and they have to get the confidence and the swag. (People think) these guys are pros and they’re really confident. But when you lose, it’s like a fighter when he gets knocked out. When you lose you don’t know if you’re ever going to win another game.”

Daily Madden: Penalties And Turnovers Ruin 49ers Game Plan

“You have a lead like that at home, there’s no way you should lose that game,” John Madden told the KCBS radio morning crew. “Turnovers and penalties will probably do it every time. When you have that lead at home and you have a pretty good defense and a pretty good running game, you have to be able to control that game.”

Penalties, Turnovers Doom 49ers, Spoil Opening Of Levi’s Stadium

It’s hard to win when you play like the 49ers did Sunday Night. When you get called for 13 penalties and commit 4 turnovers its hard to win in the NFL. They still outplayed Chicago and had a chance late to win, but fell short.

Ticket Resale Price Dropping Ahead Of 49ers Regular Season Opener At Levi’s Stadium

The 49ers home opener at Levi’s Stadium was one of the hottest tickets in the league when the tickets were printed, but it appears the amount people are willing to pay to see the first ever regular season game at the new Santa Clara stadium has dropped sharply.

Week 2 Injury Report, 49ers Secondary Banged Up At the Wrong Time; Bears Offense Not Much Better

It’s only week 2 and both the 49ers and Bears are both less than 100% entering an important matchup. Outside of Anthony Davis all players are a question mark, so hopefully injuries will have a minimal effect on the outcome.

49ers Offense Needs More Consistency For Home Opener Against Bears

The San Francisco 49ers won their first game of the 2014 season, but they didn’t generate enough offense consistently on their own. Gifted four turnovers by the Dallas Cowboys, the 49ers didn’t score at all in the second half of the game. They’ll need to make sure they create their own opportunities in Week Two against the Chicago Bears at the Levi’s Stadium opener.

49ers Will Face Similar Test From Week 1 As Bears Come To Town

The first NFL regular season game played at Levi Stadium has the San Francisco 49ers hosting the Chicago Bears. On paper, Chicago is very similar to San Francisco’s week 1 opponent the Dallas Cowboys. The Bears have an offense that can score points at will, an inconsistent passer and a less than spectacular defense.

Jared Allen: The Newest Monster Of The Midway

With former Bear defensive end Julius Peppers leaving Chicago to go to Green Bay, it looks like the Bears have already found his replacement in the form of former Viking defensive end Jared Allen. A man who has played fewer years yet has more sacks than Peppers. It seems like a smart decision.
