The team's owners, John Mara and Steve Tisch, issued a joint statement, via Ian Rapoport of NFL Media Monday, to make it clear they won't do anything until after the season. "We love Coach McAdoo", said Geno Smith at a charity event Monday in New Jersey. And it was little more than Kyle Shanahan deserved in the early stages of his rebuild in California.
Pugh, who had not played since October 22 against the Seahawks, said after Sunday's game that he felt good early in the day. The players have stood behind McAdoo in recent weeks, despite their performance on the field and an anonymous report from ESPN last week saying that he had lost the locker room.
So even if the Giants were to get embarrassed by the Chiefs on Sunday, it's unlikely they would let go of McAdoo since they have a game just four days later. "I was real happy for them". This means that Garoppolo left the bench of arguably the best team in the National Football League and a Super Bowl contender to go sit on the bench of arguably the worst team in the National Football League who just got their first win this past weekend. I didn't know it'd take this long, but it was special with the guys. "They outcoached me today".
Notable: The 49ers scored 21 unanswered points in the second and third quarters to gain control. "We appreciate the hard work he and the staff put in each and every week for us".
He not only hurt the Giants on that 83-yard play, the 49ers' longest touchdown pass since 2005, but on the 49ers' next touchdown, a 47-yard pass play to Garrett Celek, Goodwin sprung Celek with a crunching block at the 25.
San Francisco also racked up 186 rushing yards in what was a comprehensive performance offensively.
Niners left tackle Joe Staley will return earlier than expected from an orbital fracture he suffered in a loss at Philadelphia on October 29.
The offensive line, running backs and tight ends also deserve a hefty share of the credit for Beathard's career day.
The 49ers may have a potential star but if they aren't careful, they may lose him to free agency.
Bradley Pinion, commonly one of the busiest guys on the roster this season, didn't have his first punt until midway through the fourth quarter.
Jimmy Garoppolo's first start as a member of the 49ers is getting closer.
Quotable: "I don't think we can talk about Robert Woods as a possession receiver anymore after the last couple of weeks".
Numerous players said Sunday it's not their coach that is to blame.
Injury Update: Standout guard Rodger Saffold left the game with an ankle injury and didn't return, but McVay said it's not serious.
