    SANTA CLARA – It’s Thanksgiving Week, meaning the turkey, cranberries and a 49ers mailbag all taste better amid a three-game win streak: Is the pass-first 49ers’ approach here to stay? (@mark.shapiro.80) Pass the cranberries. Pass the yams. Pass the football over and over again, Jimmy Garoppolo. Now, before you daydream about a vertical-passing threat after your turducken, keep in mind that the 49ers’ passing attack is flourishing for multiple reasons. Garoppolo is seizing on Christian McCaffrey’s capabilities out of the backfield and slot: seven catches on seven targets (67 yards) in Monday night’s 38-10 rout of the Arizona Cardinals in Mexico City. When Brandon Aiyuk, Deebo Samuel and George Kittle are also healthy, happy and producing, this can be a pass-first offense, when warranted. Kyle Shanahan will strive for balance, for rushing dominance, and, if hungry, for more cranberries. What are the main points to improve to reach the Super Bowl? (@ankemagnuss) Success on third-and-long could be fleeting, and greater gains on early runs would help. How good is their two-minute drill, by the way? The 49ers rank 15th in...
    The 2022 49ers’ blueprint is established: This is a defense-first team. And for the first time in more than a decade, that might be the right model for winning in the NFL. Per a league study, after three weeks, league scoring is down nearly a touchdown per game — the lowest output since 2010. Anecdotally, Week 4 didn’t do much to change the paradigm. The cause of the downturn is easy to spot: after years of unfettered passing growth and increasing points, advanced metrics show that offensive success through the air is marginal in 2022. What’s changed? Defenses might have finally figured things out.

LAST MEETING: 49ers won 33-22 on Oct. 31, 2021. It all fell apart in the second half in the Chicago downpour in Week 1 for the 49ers. Now, how will the Niners do in the rain back at home? The 49ers will play their first game at Levi’s Stadium in 2022 against their division rival Seahawks on Sunday afternoon, though the normally brutal September sunshine isn’t expected to appear through the rain forecast throughout the day. In his first game as the full-time starting quarterback for the red and gold, Trey Lance struggled to connect through the air, completing just 13-of-28 passes for 164 yards and an interception. He was able add more offensive value with his legs, tallying 54 yards rushing on 13 carries. But the weather was...
    SANTA CLARA — Let the games begin. No, I don’t mean the 49ers’ preseason, which kicks off the first of its three games on Friday at Levi’s Stadium. I’m talking about the game within those games. Specifically, how Niners head coach Kyle Shanahan manages to do as little as possible for all 180 minutes he’s required to field his team. Shanahan has made it no secret that he has little interest in the preseason. If he had his way, he would do away with the preseason games altogether. I imagine a quarter into Friday’s quasi-season debut, Niners’ season ticket holders who paid the full regular-season price for tickets to a game between players in official team uniforms, but who are most definitely not the San Francisco 49ers and Green Bay Packers, will feel the same way. Shanahan prefers the intrateam practices that the 49ers have been doing so far in training camp and the intrateam sessions that the Niners will have for two days next week with the Minnesota Vikings. “I’m more into...
    Getty Head coach Kyle Shanahan of the San Francisco 49ers. The San Francisco 49ers were holding out hope they might get some mid-season offensive help coming off the injured reserve list (IR), but those hopes were dashed on Monday. Wide receiver Jalen Hurd appeared in just one preseason game for the Niners this year, which is likely to be his only on-field action for the rest of the 2021 campaign. The news was first published online Monday, November 8 by Ari Meirov of @MySportsUpdate. #49ers WR Jalen Hurd (knee) is unlikely to play this season, per Kyle Shanahan. The former third-round pick out of Baylor has not played in a regular season game in his three years in the NFL. — Ari Meirov (@MySportsUpdate) November 8, 2021 “#49ers WR Jalen Hurd (knee) is unlikely to play this season, per Kyle Shanahan,” Meirov wrote on Twitter. “The former third-round pick out of Baylor has not played in a regular season game in his three years in the NFL.”Shanahan Not Hopeful About Hurd’s Status GettySan Francisco 49ers wide receiver...
    GETTY George Kittle #85 of the San Francisco 49ers looks on during practice for Super Bowl LIV at the Greentree Practice Fields on the campus of the University of Miami on January 29, 2020 in Coral Gables, Florida. George Kittle is one of the best two or three tight ends in the NFL, but the best player on planet Earth? Well, according to Kittle, that’s this other guy on his team. The San Francisco 49ers were ravaged by injury last year, perhaps the single largest reason they were unable to make it back to the playoffs and defend their NFC Championship crown. One of the major Niners contributors who went down was pass rusher Nick Bosa, and he went down early. Bosa tore his ACL in Week 2 of the 2020 regular season against the New York Jets, and the Niners defensive front was never the same. It did not help that the team lost another elite pass rusher in Dee Ford the week before. But now, with Bosa back, Kittle said the Super Bowl and beyond is...
    Hey, Dieter is a weekly wrap-up of the questions that I receive via email, Twitter, radio call-ins, and my morning rooms on the Locker Room app. Also, questions I receive in more analog ways. What a concept! If you want to get in on this action, you can email me at dkurtenbach@bayareanewsgroup.com, tweet me @dieter, text me at 510.479.0932, or yell at me on the street. A warning: Some of the names have been changed to protect the innocent and some names remain the same to shame the ridiculous. Is it time to trade Draymond Green? — Brad via email » I feel like we have this conversation once a quarter, but let’s rehash it: While trading Green feels sacrosanct, I don’t think it’s a subject that cannot be broached. Ultimately, I don’t think there’s much of a trade market for him, seeing as he has three years and roughly $75 million remaining on his contract, and I know that no one is going to come in with a value that’s truly compensatory to...
    Rivalries make sports great. There’s nothing like friendly — and oftentimes not-so-friendly — competition. And the Niners have a new arch-rival. Yes, to most, the Seahawks are the 49ers’ top rival — that hatred runs deep — but there is something brewing between the 49ers and the Rams that cannot be ignored. And it boiled over this weekend, when the Rams’ traded for Matt Stafford, outbidding several teams, including, reportedly, the 49ers. From the outside, acquiring Stafford looks simply like a play to improve the Rams’ Super Bowl chances for next year. But from my vantage point, it was their rivalry with the 49ers that convinced LA to make the move. The Rams are dead serious about this rivalry with San Francisco. Former Kyle Shanahan protégée Sean McVay is tired of losing to master, so his team hit hard this offseason by making a huge upgrade at quarterback, cost be damned. Now, it’s the 49ers turn to hit back. Related Articles Kurtenbach: What the 49ers should do now that Matt Stafford...
    The Deets is a weekday morning dose of commentary — delivered at 7 a.m. — from sports columnist Dieter Kurtenbach that wraps up everything important in the world of sports and looks forward to another crazy day ahead. Who needs amusement parks to be open when you can ride the roller coaster that is the 49ers’ 2020 season? San Francisco was smacked around by the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday, knocking their record back to .500 on the season bringing out some big questions ahead of a Thursday night showdown with the Packers at Levi’s Stadium. And, like most embarrassing losses, it also brought out some wild overreactions. These are summarizations of real reactions that crossed my desk in the aftermath. It’s crazy times out there, folks. And to think this week is only going to be crazier, and that this season is only halfway done. Overreaction: The 49ers’ season is over » Not yet. San Francisco had an opportunity on Sunday to win three straight games and force their way into the top...
    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — The Philadelphia Eagles tied the Cincinnati Bengals last week. It can’t get any worse this week, right? The winless Birds (0-2-1) are looking for their first win of the season against the 2-1 San Francisco 49ers in primetime on Sunday Night Football. The CBS3 Digital Team breaks down this week’s Eagles-49ers matchup. Matt Higgins: The good news is the Eagles are only a half-game out of first place as we head into Week 4 of the NFL season. The bad news is the Eagles are just a total dumpster fire right now. Following a dismal 23-23 “loss” to the Cincinnati Bengals, the Birds are traveling across the country to face the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday Night Football. The Niners are coming off a 36-9 thrashing of another NFC Least team, the New York Giants, where backup quarterback Nick Mullens threw for 343 yards and a touchdown with Jimmy Garoppolo out with a high ankle sprain. They also didn’t have running back Raheem Mostert and tight end George Kittle for the game. With Carson Wentz’s play and regression...
    George Kittle and Jimmy Garoppolo headline the long list of Niners that will miss Week 3’s game against the Giants. The San Francisco 49ers officially ruled star tight end George Kittle out for Sunday’s game against the New York Giants, per Adam Schefter, with a knee injury suffered in Week 1 against the Arizona Cardinals keeping him sidelined for the second consecutive week. George Kittle is officially out for Sunday, per Kyle Shanahan. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 25, 2020 49ers’ HC Kyle Shanahan told @KNBR this morning that QB Nick Mullens will start Sunday at the Giants. — Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 25, 2020 With starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo also ruled out, it is fair to wonder whether the MetLife Stadium turf has anything to do with the decision. The 49ers suffered some brutal injuries in the same stadium during Week 2, with Garoppolo, defensive linemen Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas, and running back Raheem Mostert all going down. The team complained to the league about the turf conditions, and the New York Daily News reports that...
