The one thing growing aggravating about the San Francisco 49ers is the injuries. Too. Many. Injuries. This team has clearly been snakebit on the injury front with them just trying to find bodies to get them through the weekend. This is a blessing in disguise for the younger players [url=http://www.49erscheapstore.com/hoodie-cheap]San Francisco 49ers Hoodie[/url] , as it gets them some playing time, but it still hurts productivity. It has me wondering what the deal is. Is this a conditioning problem? A style problem? Or just bad luck for the snake? I’m going with the latter. This just happens. The 49ers have had years where they were very fortunate to dodge massive injuries. This season is not one of them. The amount they are getting though certainly is a bit concerning isn’t it?

He’s got serious speed (4.39 40 at his college Pro Day), and Cheetah rhymes with the pronunciation of his last name. It’s pretty simple.Enter Tyreek Hill. The Kansas City Chiefs burner wide receiver is nicknamed Cheetah, and in fact, his Twitter handle is simply @cheetah. He ran a 4.29 40 at his college Pro Day [url=http://www.49erscheapstore.com/customized-cheap]Customized San Francisco 49ers Jerseys[/url] , and regularly shows up on the NFL highlight reels with his big plays — with the peace sign thrown in when he’s really burned a defensive back.Naturally, with the 49ers traveling to face the Chiefs this weekend, Hill was asked about the 49ers Cheetah. Hill said there’s only one cheetah in the NFL, and “You can’t be a cheetah and run a 4.48, or whatever you run.” He did offer some praise for Breida.Breida might be asked about the comments, but he’s a pretty low key guy. I don’t expect much in the way of a response from the 49ers running back when it comes to smack talk.Fortunately, Marquise Goodwin was willing to offer up some smack talk about his own speed. Goodwin has competed in both track and field events [url=http://www.sanfrancisco49ersteamonline.com]www.sanfrancisco49ersteamonline.com[/url] , earning a spot in the Olympics as a long jumper. He’s viewed as the fastest guy on the team, and he had a perfect comment when asked to compare himself with Hill.The 49ers offense would love to have Goodwin back on the field for Sunday’s matchup. He is going to be listed as limited for Wednesday’s practice as he continues rehabbing a thigh bruise. He was a DNP all last week, so this is an upgrade.Given how prolific the Chiefs offense has been through two weeks, the 49ers will need every offensive weapon they can muster. We’ve seen Dante Pettis slowly emerging while Goodwin has been out. Add a deep threat like Goodwin back into the mix, and this offense could take an important step forward.
