Andrew Harbaugh | January 23rd, 2019

Yesterday was media day down in Mobile for the Senior Bowl players and media. We were able to hear from all the players and coaches that are down here and even the director of the event Jim Nagy. I personally got to talk to a handful of players and asked all sorts of questions and got a wide range of answers back.

Not The 49ers We Expected

Matt Woolsey | January 22nd, 2019

2018 was not the year 49er fans thought it would be. A potential playoff berth was in the discussion, not a 4-12 season that would be good enough for the second-worst record in the league. But if you are going to understand 2018, we will have to hope into the old DeLorean and head back towards the end of 2017.

How the QB position has changed: ’02-’18

Nickolas Loza | January 22nd, 2018

Now we’re getting to the juicy bits, all the prolific passers of this era have really changed things for the future of the NFL. Teams are now passing more than ever and running less than ever, like in 2011 when teams that year on average passed 105 more times than they ran the ball, and in 2012, when teams passed on average 120 more times than they ran the ball. The times had changed very noticeably.

Pranav Ramasubramanian | January 20th, 2019

The Los Angeles Rams come off a run-heavy game where they decided to let C.J. Anderson and Todd Gurley take over for a 30-22 win against the Cowboys to get to the NFC Championship game. It wasn’t as easy for the New Orleans Saints, who had to rally from down fourteen against Nick Foles and the defending champion Philadelphia Eagles to eke out a win on a last-minute interception just to host this NFC Championship Game. This game will kick off championship weekend and will be played at 3:05 ET on FOX.

Los Angeles Rams Two-Headed Running Threat

Brendan Abban | January 20th, 2019

The Los Angeles Rams are one win away from making it to the Super Bowl for the first time since 2001. Due in large part to the two-headed running attack they recently acquired. The Rams backfield was formerly a one-man band in Todd Gurley who shouldered much of the rushing responsibilities. However, a lot of changed when they signed C.J. Anderson going into Week 16.

Cincinnati Bengals Season Review

Dale Money | January 20th, 2019

The Cincinnati Bengals started off the regular season 4-1 and seemed ready to make a playoff run. However, before you knew it they picked up five straight losses and lost seven out of their last eight, ending the season with a 16-13 loss at Pittsburgh and 6-10 record to finish out of the playoff picture for the third straight year.

Patriots vs Chiefs AFC Championship Preview

John Wagner | January 19th, 2019

Brady vs Manning. Brady vs Rodgers. Brady vs Manning (again). Brady vs… Mahomes? Let’s just say this. Patrick Mahomes is 18 years younger than Tom Brady. That’s a player about to be drafted into the NBA difference in age. This will be one of the most interesting championship rounds in recent history. It’s the young buck Patrick Mahomes trying to come in and take the reigns of the AFC from the man who’s reigned supreme of the AFC since 2001. It’s a shifting of times as quarterbacks like Mahomes, Baker Mayfield, DeShaun Watson, and others start to emerge as the future leaders of the new NFL generation as quarterbacks like Drew Brees, Brady, Manning, Philip Rivers, and Ben Roethlisberger start to reach the twilight of their careers. Brady vs Mahomes is just the story behind this game, but in all reality, these two teams are playing for one thing and one thing only. A chance to play in the Super Bowl.
