San Francisco 49ers 2020 NFL Draft Grade

The first and hopefully only all-virtual NFL draft is in the books. Not that the draft itself was necessarily bad but watching Roger Goodell…

Reaction to the Armstead and Buckner Deals

Day 1 of the legal tampering period was a wild ride for 49ers fans and players alike. As expected, Arik Armstead’s contract was the first domino that needed to fall before the red and gold could begin making any other moves. Armstead was willing to bend quite a bit to help the team stay competitive and took a hometown discount on a back-loaded contract over the next 6 years. Paraag Marathe and John Lynch have bought themselves two more cheap years before the cap hopefully catches up to his contract.

49ers Draft Discussion: Does X Mark the Spot?

Thursday, April 23rd, 2020. The NFL draft will be kicking off in 2 months. Free agency is great but I’ve always felt that the draft is when the new NFL season starts ramping up. Whether its a highly-ranked prospect being everything you hoped, getting a stud in the 5th round, or finding gold in a UDFA, the draft can fill you with hope about your team’s potential for the upcoming season. With only one pick before the 5th round, do the 49ers select a WR?

49ers Advance to the Super Bowl: “Feels Great, Baby”

An offhand comment from Jimmy Garoppolo to Fox’s Erin Andrews on Halloween after an 8-0 start to the season became a rallying cry for both fans and some teammates. Naturally, 100 different companies have slapped the phrase on any piece of merch they have that can fit the 3-word catch phrase (spoiler, it’s a lot of merch). Despite everyone trying to make a buck off of it, the statement really sums up how 49ers players and fans feel about this season. It feels great to win the NFC. It feels great to have another shot at winning the Super Bowl. It feels great to have a team to be proud of, not just on the field but also how they mesh off the field and support each other. It’s wild looking back at the preseason and remembering the vibe around some corners of 49ers twitter. I saw a surprising number of people saying San Francisco should fire both HC Kyle Shanahan and GM John Lynch (2019 PFWA Executive of the Year). This is what a rebuild done right looks like. I’m excited for the Super Bowl and I’m also excited for the team’s future.
