Jaquiski Tartt Jersey


SANTA CLARA Arik Armstead Jersey , Calif. (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers sure are getting a lot of attention for a team coming off a six-win season that hasn’t even sniffed the playoffs the past four years.That’s what a season-ending five-game winning streak and the presence of a potential franchise quarterback in Jimmy Garoppolo will do.One group not buying into all the hype is in the San Francisco locker room.“There’s no one (here) who thinks we arrived,” said left tackle Joe Staley, the only player left from the Niners‘ last playoff team in 2013. “We have a ton of work to do. We were a 6-10 football team. We were happy with the way we finished last year, but that’s in the past.”San Francisco put together that sterling 5-0 finish after a dreadful start to the first season under coach Kyle Shanahan that featured nine straight losses to begin the schedule, including a record five straight by three points or fewer.That all began to change after the team acquired Garoppolo before the trade deadline from New England. After a few weeks to learn the offense, Garoppolo stepped in and showed why the Patriots had groomed him as Tom Brady’s successor.He completed 67.4 percent of his passes last season, averaging 8.8 yards per attempt with seven TDs, five interceptions and a 96.2 rating to improve to 7-0 in his career as a starter.Among quarterbacks with at least 100 attempts last season, Garoppolo ranked first in yards per attempt Y.A. Tittle Jersey , fourth in completion percentage. His 308.4 yards passing per game in his five starts also would have led the league had he played a full season.But more importantly, he changed the mindset of a whole franchise.“Jimmy is confident in himself,” Shanahan said. “I think everyone felt that right away. That’s why guys gravitate to guys. It doesn’t matter what people say or how they act. People can tell when people believe in themselves and when they don’t. But, it shows the most on the field. When you’re having success as a quarterback, as a receiver, as anybody, that confidence is only going to grow. When people start seeing you, the more plays you can put together the higher it gets.”Here are some other things to watch this season:SHERMAN’S HEALTH: One of the most high-profile moves San Francisco made in free agency was signing Richard Sherman after his release in Seattle. After years of tormenting the Niners, Sherman has flipped sides in the NFC West rivalry. But how effective he will be will depend heavily on his health. His 2017 season was cut short by surgery on his Achilles tendon. Sherman hopes to overcome that at age 30. He was slowed by a hamstring problem in camp Frank Gore Jersey , so it’s uncertain how much speed he’s lost from his days as the league’s top cover cornerbacks.REUBEN’S ROLE: Reuben Foster showed signs of being an elite inside linebacker as a rookie when he was on the field. The problem was he missed five full games with injuries and left several others for periods of time. Having Foster at middle linebacker is key and the Niners have tried to get him to use his hands more to limit the wear and tear on his body. But Foster already will miss the first two games because of a suspension following two offseason arrests, and San Francisco can’t afford to be without him much more.RUSH THE PASSER: San Francisco failed to generate much pass pressure last year, getting only 30 sacks. Elvis Dumervil was cut after leading the team with 6 ½, and no one else had more than three. Despite the lack of production, DeForest Buckner is one of the league’s top defensive linemen. He generates consistent pressure and could get more opportunities outside to get one-on-one matchups that could lead to more sacks.DEEP THREAT: One of the most impressive 49ers last year was speedy WR Marquise Goodwin, who smashed his career highs with 56 catches for 962 yards in his first season with San Francisco. The former Olympic long jumper proved he can be more than a deep threat as he ranked in the top six in catches (29) and yards (384) in five games with Garoppolo.“He’s continued to get better in every facet of his game,” Shanahan said. “He probably hasn’t gotten faster, he’s always been fast. But his hands have gotten better, he’s gotten more consistent. He tracks the ball well. It’s not just catching the easy ones now Jaquiski Tartt Jersey , he’s starting to make some tough ones.”RUN THE ROCK: The Niners let Carlos Hyde leave in free agency and replaced him with a more versatile back in Jerick McKinnon. But McKinnon went down with a season-ending knee injury, leaving a big hole on the offense. Alfred Morris was signed midway through camp and could be the main back with little-used Matt Breida and Raheem Mostert the other options. One option on each side of the ball"When your team gets stung by the injury bug, you’re bound to have players nominated for Comeback Player of the Year the following season. PFF listed their top-10 candidates for Comeback Player of the Year for the upcoming season, and two San Francisco 49ers made the list. While they’re both prominent names, the two players have a realistic shot at winning—especially the signal-caller. Here’s what PFF had to say.The other quarterback on the list was the Carolina Panthers QB Cam Newton. Many fans are hoping Garoppolo is up for a more prominent award by the end of the season. The numbers PFF references above tell you all you need to know about Jimmy G and how he will elevate the offense once he plays a full season. Now he has to play.The other option is a bit more far-fetched, but a player that is easy to talk yourself into. New 49ers CB Jason Verrett has all the talent in the world. He’s also played the equivalent of one full season and a couple of games when you look at his snap counts over his five-year career. Here’s what PFF said.Verrett is a great guy that is easy to root for. Watching him in training camp go 1-on-1 with Dante Pettis will be a treat. The 49ers have a gem if they can get quality snaps out of Verrett. Unfortunately, it doesn’t feel plausible to rely on him. He’s one of the most exciting players to watch when healthy, in any case.
