49ers receiver Marquise Goodwin and wife Morgan open up about death of son

Fri, 17 Nov 2017 16:28:53 UT

Hours after losing his son in childbirth, 49ers wide receiver Marquise Goodwin hauled in an 83-yard touchdown pass to help the 49ers win their first game of 2017.

Now, Goodwin and his wife Morgan are opening up about the loss of their child, and how Marquise decided to play just hours after the tragedy.




49ers may be in no hurry to open Garoppolo era

Thu, 16 Nov 2017 03:57:36 UT

After the 49ers received an unexpected gift just before the holiday season, the question remains: When will they unwrap it? Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo hasn’t played in the two games since he was acquired the day before Halloween, and there’s no guarantee he’ll start the next game against the Seahawks on Nov. 26, three days after Thanksgiving. On Monday, at the start of the 49ers’ bye week, head coach Kyle Shanahan indicated C.J. Beathard’s performance in a 31-21 win over the Giants on Sunday could push Garoppolo’s debut into December. “We'll see how practice goes next week,” Shanahan said. “C.J. played pretty well — I thought he had his best game.



Relying on faith to handle tragedy

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 04:44:43 UT

After practices, 49ers wide receiver Marquise Goodwin leads on-field prayer sessions. During games, he keeps the faith. In fact, in Sunday’s 31-21 win over the Giants, Goodwin prayed on the field over injured New York defensive lineman Jason Pierre-Paul. “I pray for everybody,” Goodwin said, “throughout the game.” Given his faith, it’s not surprising how Goodwin explained how he played Sunday hours after his wife, Morgan, delivered their stillborn son at 19 weeks because of complications. “The honest to God truth, the only reason I made it through the game was because of God, my faith in God,” Goodwin said.



Fantasy football: Players providing good, bad surprises

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 03:29:09 UT

The emergence of the Saints’ running game is really bumming out those of us counting on Drew Brees to lead us to the Promised Land. Balanced offenses are great for Super Bowl runs in the real world, but an elite fantasy quarterback is a terrible thing to waste. It could be worse, of course. Brees could be out altogether, like Aaron Rodgers, whose departure likewise turned Jordy Nelson into a pungent slice of fantasy cheese. Then there’s the great Case Keenum, who is molding Adam Thielen into a fantasy stud, while serving up ample leftovers to Stefon Diggs. Whaddya say we let Teddy Bridgewater heal a bit longer from the sideline, coach? Welcome to the fantasy limelight, Jared Goff.



NFL players initiating larger percentage of concussion evaluations

Wed, 15 Nov 2017 01:12:50 UT

The NFL’s chief medical officer says more than a third of concussion evaluations so far this season are a result of players indicating they have symptoms, a much higher percentage than last season. Allen Sills said in a conference call with reporters Tuesday that “about 37 percent” of the 379 concussion evaluations during the preseason and regular season have been “initiated by a self-report.” Sills said it was about 20 to 22 percent a year ago. He called that increase “a positive development.



Cam Newton throws 4 TD passes as Panthers rout Dolphins

Tue, 14 Nov 2017 05:20:52 UT

Cam Newton threw for 254 yards and four touchdowns, rookie Christian McCaffrey of Stanford scored touchdowns rushing and receiving, and Carolina crushed the visiting Dolphins 45-21 on Monday night for its third straight victory. Jonathan Stewart ran for a season-high 110 yards and Newton added 95, including a 69-yard jaunt on a read option, as the Panthers racked up 294 yards on the ground. Carolina set a franchise record with 548 yards from scrimmage. Devin Funchess caught five passes for 92 yards and two touchdowns as the Panthers (7-3) remained a half-game behind the NFC South-leading Saints. The Dolphins (4-5) have lost three straight.



49ers’ Marquise Goodwin experiences day of grief and glory

Tue, 14 Nov 2017 04:41:35 UT

As Marquise Goodwin completed an 83-yard touchdown catch Sunday, he blew a kiss to the sky with his left hand, then dropped to his right knee in the end zone before falling to the turf, overcome with emotion as teammates surrounded him. On the sideline, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan wasn’t surprised by Goodwin’s reaction: Hours earlier, he had tried to console the grief-stricken wide receiver. “I knew,” Shanahan said, “that he was going to be in that end zone for a while.” On Sunday, Goodwin, 26, took the field about nine hours after his wife, Morgan, had to deliver their stillborn son at 19 weeks.



Raiders put Gareon Conley on injured reserve

Tue, 14 Nov 2017 01:21:55 UT

The Raiders placed cornerback Gareon Conley, their first-round pick, on injured reserve Monday, ending his season. Conley had not played since Week 3 because of a shin injury. The Raiders also reinstated defensive tackle Darius Latham from the reserve/suspended list to take Conley’s spot on the active roster. Conley, the 24th overall pick in this year’s draft from Ohio State, missed training camp, preseason and Week 1 with the shin injury. He made his NFL debut in Week 2 against the Jets and played in one more game before encountering a setback.



49ers celebrate several firsts in first win of season

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 20:21:03 UT

The 49ers didn’t get just get their first win of the season Sunday -- they accomplished feats they hadn’t managed in several seasons. In a 31-21 victory over the Giants, they took nine weeks of frustration out on an opponent who proved more hapless. Here’s a list of the many notables from the victory over New York, which fell to 1-8: ** C.J. Beathard’s 83-yard touchdown pass to Marquise Goodwin in the second quarter matched the eighth-longest in franchise history. It was also the longest since Sept. 25, 2005, when Tim Ratty tossed an 89-yard touchdown to Brandon Lloyd in a 34-31 loss to the Cowboys.




Whoa, a win: 49ers end skid with victory over Giants

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 05:59:53 UT

Sorry, 2008 Lions, the 2017 49ers won’t be joining your infamous and lonely club this season. On Sunday, the 49ers accomplished something they last managed Christmas Eve, a mere 325 days earlier, by winning a game. San Francisco’s 31-21 victory over the Giants at Levi’s Stadium improved its record to 1-9 and ensured it wouldn’t join those Lions as a second franchise to have an 0-16 season. How did the 49ers’ first home win since Sept. 12, 2016, feel? After reporters entered the postgame locker room, they witnessed a huge dark area on the carpet where players had dumped a bucket of water on Kyle Shanahan and boogied around him to celebrate his first victory as a head coach.



49ers: Game grades vs. the Giants

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 05:58:23 UT

Offense Wow, the Giants’ defense is a joke. But the 49ers certainly had something to do with creating those acres of space in the secondary. The 49ers had season highs in yards (474) and rushing yards (186), and averaged 8.2 yards per play. C.J. Beathard (123.4 rating) might not be the QB of the future, but he was a heck of a QB on Sunday (thanks in large part to his line: no sacks, two hits). Defense Rookies LB Reuben Foster (10 tackles), S Adrian Colbert (two pass breakups) and CB Ahkello Witherspoon (pass breakup) played huge roles in limiting the Giants to 13 points and 284 yards before their garbage-time TD drive.



After talking, Joe Staley’s actions speak loudly in 49ers’ first win

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 05:30:01 UT

On Saturday night, 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan asked three of his elder statesmen, left tackle Joe Staley, linebacker Elvis Dumervil and fullback Kyle Juszczyk, to address players during a team meeting. For Staley, it was a nerve-racking assignment. “Anyone that knows me personally knows that speaking puts me right back in high school,” Staley said. “Speech class. Get nervous. But it was good. Spoke from the heart.” Perhaps Staley’s words resonated, but there’s no doubt his actions had a major impact in a 31-21 win over the Giants at Levi’s Stadium on Sunday.



49ers: This & that ... stats & facts

Mon, 13 Nov 2017 03:49:28 UT

Number of the day 1 Let’s be honest: The only number that mattered Sunday was the “1” the 49ers put in the win column. Cleveland Browns, the stage is all yours as you stumble your way toward a possible 0-16 season (a mark only the 2008 Lions have “achieved”). There is, however, the issue of avoiding the first one-win season in franchise history; five times — including 2016 — the 49ers have had two-win seasons. Next game What’s better than winning your first game of the season? Having a few extra days to enjoy it. The 49ers next have a bye week and won’t play again until Nov.



49ers DL Solomon Thomas sidelined for second straight game

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 20:18:52 UT

Rookie defensive tackle Solomon Thomas will be sidelined with a knee injury for today’s game against the Giants at Levi’s Stadium. Thomas, the No. 3 pick who was listed as questionable, will miss his second straight game and his absence means DeForest Buckner is the only homegrown No. 1 pick on the defensive line, with Arik Armstead is on season-ending injured reserve. Ronald Blair will start in place of Thomas. Meanwhile, the 49ers will get first-string nickel cornerback K’Waun Williams back after he missed two games with a quadriceps injury. Williams, who was questionable, was replaced by Leon Hall, 32, who remained active today.



Ready for some (bad) football? 49ers host Giants in historically awful matchup

Sun, 12 Nov 2017 02:23:37 UT

The last time Giants quarterback Eli Manning was at Levi’s Stadium was 21 months ago, when he was recognized along with the NFL’s other Super Bowl MVPs before Super Bowl 50. In his return to Santa Clara on Sunday, Manning will be present for another game that will go down in league history — for all the wrong reasons. Are you ready for some bad football? The meeting between the 49ers (0-9) and Giants (1-7) figures to be notable only because of this distinction: The contest will mark the third time in the Super Bowl era — and the first time since 1984 — that teams with one combined win play each other in Week 10 or later, according to ESPN Stats & information.
