John Madden likes the Denver Broncos over the New England Patriots in Sunday night’s showdown.
The San Francisco 49ers released wide receiver and return man Kyle Williams on Tuesday after three-plus seasons.
After his struggles in the return game Sunday, Kyle Williams should be one of the several roster cuts San Francisco is going to have to make as they welcome back several players. It’s not that Williams has been abysmal, but there is no denying the fact that he is taking up valuable room on a talented team that needs as many open roster spots as they can get.
As far as 49ers receiver Kyle Williams is concerned, there’s only one way for his team to bid farewell to Candlestick Park this season: “You’ve got go out right. You’ve got to win.”
With so many injuries to key receivers, the 49ers will rely more than ever on Randy Moss and first-round pick A.J. Jenkins to support top threat Michael Crabtree, starting Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals.
Although the injury reports list both teams as relatively healthy, San Francisco will be without a big part of their running game, and a player who wore a few hats. St. Louis is also a little banged up, and could be without their top receiver for the season series finale.
Former Cal star and Detroit Lions running back Jahvid Best was honored Tuesday with the NFL’s Ed Block Courage award for his “steadfast dedication and determination” in trying to return to the field after suffering two more concussions last season. Best hasn’t played since game six last year, and is sidelined through this season.
San Francisco 49ers wide receiver and return man Kyle Williams says he will miss the rest of the season with a torn ligament in his left knee sustained in Sunday’s win at New Orleans.
The match up to watch on Sunday will be Carlos Rogers vs. Victor Cruz. As with San Francisco and New York both are very talented and have developed a bit of a rivalry since Rogers mocked Cruz’s touchdown celebration. This will mark the 3rd time the two have faced each other with both winning a previous meeting. Whichever player gets the better of their opponent Sunday will give their team a great chance at winning the game.
The man known for his two fumbles on punt returners in last years NFC Championship Game has returned this season to prove that he is able to contribute at the NFL level. Throughout his entire life he has had to work hard and earn his spot and after a great preseason is a bright spot on a team that is constantly looking for their next play maker.
