As the 49ers look back on this season, it will not be positive. The team almost had a losing record, and missed the playoffs after 3 straight NFC Championship games. However, the teams awful season has to do with injuries than anything else, and a problem that shouldn’t haunt them next season.
Rumors are flying that the San Francisco 49ers might trade Head Coach Jim Harbaugh to the Oakland Raiders, and that’s just the icing on the cake for this Bay Area rivalry. The 49ers need a win to keep their playoff hopes alive, and the Silver & Black just need something to forget that beating they just took from the St. Louis Rams. The Sunday game at the Coliseum promises to be quite interesting.
The 49ers and Giants have to game plan for some missing players this week, but none that they can’t overcome. There will be several game time decisions, but no big name is really in danger of sitting this one out, other than Patrick Willis.
The 49ers have lost All-Pro linebacker Patrick Willis for the season. He announced Tuesday he’ll have surgery on his injured big toe after missing the last three games.
The 49ers will be without the face of the defense for the stretch run after news broke Tuesday that linebacker Patrick Willis will not play another snap for the 49ers this season.
10 weeks into the season and the Saints and 49ers are relatively healthy. Both are dealing with injuries and could miss some players, but all in all will be full strength. The only real question for the 49ers is if Patrick Willis will play.
First up for the 49ers after their bye is the St. Louis Rams. After beating them less than a month ago, San Francisco should have no problems doing it again in front of their own home crowd.
The 49ers have just started their bye week and have already gotten enough news to last the entire week. While some of it’s bad, most of it’s good and San Francisco will be a dangerous team coming off their bye week.
San Francisco has a lot of players on their injury report, but the biggest is Patrick Willis. The 49ers will hope the defense can play well without him, and hope that the secondary holds up. On the other side of the ball the Broncos have to be elated with their injury report.
The 49ers are hurting even more on defense as they prepare to meet the Broncos in Denver Sunday night, with linebacker Patrick Willis now sidelined with a toe injury.
