San Francisco 49ers
The 49ers season is still not over. They can still make the playoffs, and even if unable to do that still need to show the rest of the NFC West where they stand. The team needs to forget about the past two weeks and focus on a strong finish as things could still fall their way before it’s all said and done.
With all the talk about the Oakland Raiders acquiring San Francisco 49ers Head Coach Jim Harbaugh in a trade for draft picks, few seem to be considering the possibility the Silver & Black might retain Interim Head Coach Tony Sparano. One thing is certain: With an inferior roster, Sparano out-prepared and out-coached Harbaugh last week as the Raiders beat the 49ers, 24-13. That has to count for something.
The Oakland Raiders broke their 16-game losing streak last month against the Kansas City Chiefs at the Coliseum, but now the Silver & Black go to Arrowhead Stadium in Missouri for the rematch. The Chiefs have lost three in a row, and they are on the verge of playoff elimination—they might blame the Raiders for that, so there’s going to be some nasty waiting for Oakland this weekend.
For the second time this season, the Seahawks and 49ers will meet. Both teams need a win for their playoff hopes, but it’s the 49ers who are on the verge of being eliminated. San Francisco has not looked good the past two weeks and will need to quickly turn things around if they want to avoid their 3rd straight loss.
OAKLAND (KCBS) – To John Madden, Sunday’s game in Oakland was all about the rise of the Silver and Black, not the demise of the 49ers. “It was a great day for the Raiders,” Madden […]
After their 24-13 loss to the Raiders Sunday, the 49ers playoff hopes are slim with three games to play.
The 49ers have hit rock bottom. While they are still in the playoff hunt, they dealt themselves a crippling blow losing to the Oakland Raiders. The team lost this one as a unit with the offense, defense and special teams all failing to show up.
No one outside the Oakland Raiders locker room thought they had a chance to win the Battle of the Bay in 2015, but that’s what happened Sunday at the Coliseum. The Silver & Black beat the San Francisco 49ers, 24-13, to win their second straight home game and improve their season record to 2-11.
San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh took exception to criticism of Colin Kaepernick following the quarterback’s somewhat brief media session on Wednesday.
Compared to previous weeks, the Oakland Raiders have a little health momentum on their side heading into Sunday’s home matchup with Bay Area rival San Francisco. Forget the Harbaugh intrigue for a few moments: The Silver & Black might be as healthy as they’ve been all years—not counting the players already on the season-ending IR, of course. Oakland always could use some of those players, but they’re lost for the season, of course.
