What is going on here ? Another win ! I thought that we were tanking to get Bosa ? In fact i'm always happy to hear of another 49es win. George Kittle has been one of the outstanding performers this season. Now they just need to find him (and Pettis) some more help in the tight end/ wide receiver positions.

George Kittle, Antonio Brown commence their football courtship

Steelers receiver Antonio Brown has kept a very low profile in the aftermath of the unflattering report regarding the latest distraction he has created in Pittsburgh. With one exception.
49ers tight end George Kittle, apparently aware of the rift currently existing between Brown and the Steelers, tweeted a simple greeting to wideout who currently may be feeling unwanted: “Sup?
Brown responded, tweeting a starry eyed emoji.
The gesture is being interpreted, regardless of intent, as Kittle making a pitch for Brown to join the 49ers, and Brown accepting. The biggest impediment (beyond 49ers management actually wanting Brown), continues to be Brown’s contract. Because the Steelers opt for large signing bonuses over guaranteed money beyond the first year, and because the Steelers routinely restructure contracts to create cap space, the cap consequences for trading or cutting Brown would exceed $21 million.
But if this embattled receiver has also become embittered, the Steelers could be looking at a T.O. 2005 situation, on the other end of the Commonwealth. Which could force them to do something in order to avoid another season filled with even more distractions that trace back to a receiver who has demonstrated in recent months a side far different than the hard-working, always-smiling yardage and touchdown machine.
And if Brown somehow ends up in San Francisco this offseason, yes, the 49ers and Steelers are scheduled to face each other in 2019.

Defence were the big winners. After only 2 interceptions all last season (how is that even possible) compared to 2 pick6 in the same game including the dealer to make it a 2 score game.

Jimmy G was serviceable. Overall a good start with plenty of upside to come.

Looking good. I put a Superbowl winners bet on your mob at $64 preseason.

Since my squad is a genuine dumpster fire.....I'm aboard the 9ers this year, Let's go team!!!
Problem is the NFC West has 3 quality teams and 1 terrible one

Will make getting into the playoffs hard.

However that could get easier with 2 road wins to start the year off and 2 very winnable games v the Steelers & Browns coming up.

I'm not convinced the Seahawks are all that great yet. Rams had two very easy games also with Brees going down in the first quarter today. Long way to go, be interesting to see how it plays out.

It's going to be a tough run. We've started better than the experts expected which helps to get the wins on the board.

To make matters worse, we've struggled badly against the weakest team in our division.....

Obviously very early days but it’s between us and Seattle for the wild card spot... hard to see anyone topping the Rams looking for redemption especially in the NFC West.

Loving the look of the Jimmy G led offense atm
