“I just want to win football games”

 - Joe Staley keeps it pretty plain and simple Through the trials and tribulations of the first five weeks of the 49ers 2018 season [url=http://www.49ersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-hoodie]San Francisco 49ers Womens Hoodie[/url] , one of the players you feel for the most is veteran tackle Joe Staley. For the younger members of the team, looking forward towards future seasons is always a bright spot in tough times, but for Staley, how much time does he really have left? He entered the offseason with a very positive outlook when the expectations were at their height, but who can blame him if all he wants is to win games now. When asked about what it said about the team still being in the game to the end, Staley was pretty clear: Some of the offensive struggles have been simply the health of the offensive line. Staley, along with Mike McGlinchey and Weston Richburg have all been nursing knee injuries. After the game, when asked if his knee held him back, Staley stated succinctly, “I was out there so I was expected to go 100%.” Staley explained the frustration further:In the rest of his post game interview, Staley discussed the technical side of what happened to the offense and what he felt they could have done better. His frustration and need to win, however [url=http://www.49ersauthorizedshops.com/authentic-customized]Womens Customized San Francisco 49ers Jerseys[/url] , was more telling. Staley is 34 years old and is under contract through the 2019 season after he signed restructured contract in April of this year. Bonding with his team BFF McGlinchey has kept him young at heart and enthusiastic, but hopefully another tough season doesn't change his perspective entirely and he still ends up playing out his contract. Here is there rest of his interview: San Francisco 49ers QB C.J. Beathard didn’t get hit as much this week as last week, but he still got hit a few times. Is he still showing that toughness and leadership?“Yeah, definitely. He’s back there trying to do what he’s got to do. We’ve got to give him more time. We had a play-action pass there in the 3rdquarter. We’ve got to anticipate the up-field rush there and not go as hard on the run. He wasn’t biting on it. We’ve got to do a better job. That’s what I can focus on.”How much did losing San Francisco 49ers RB Matt Breida, impact things especially with the start that he got?“We still moved the ball in the run game. The whole thing comes down to five turnovers. You’re not going to win in football. We were still able to move the ball. I thought [San Francisco 49ers RB] Alfred [Morris] did a great job moving the ball. But we’ve just got to not turn the ball over.” When the difference is turnovers, is it harder for a team to adjust and correct that? You outplayed them in a lot of ways.“We’ve got to continue to do what we’re doing. I had one play that affected the turnover differential. I gave up that sack-fumble. That’s what I’ve got to focus on. That’s what I can improve on, the play-action and being more aware of the situation and understanding that he’s not going to bite on the run-action. I’ve got to adjust my set and give C.J. more time to go downfield.”Top highlights (and lowlights) from the 49ers’ brutal loss in Kansas City The San Francisco 49ers lost on Sunday to the Kansas City Chiefs, 38-27, but that’s currently the least of their problems. Unless you’re living under a rock, you’ve probably heard by now that quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo left the game with a left knee injury and the 49ers are fearing a torn ACL, which would sideline the franchise star till 2019.Aside from Garoppolo, the 49ers also lost starting defenders Richard Sherman (leg) and Adrian Colbert (hip) to ailments. After getting down 35-10 to the Chiefs at halftime [url=http://www.49erscheapshops.com]www.49erscheapshops.com[/url] , the 49ers climbed back into the game, making it 38-24, with a chance to cut it to a one-possession game, before Garoppolo got injured and exited the game. It was a tale of two halves for San Francisco, missing tackles, committing numerous penalties, dropping passes in the first half and executing at a high level in the second half. Here are some of the top plays (and some rough ones), from Sunday’s contest in Kansas City.It might have been two weeks since linebacker Reuben Foster played for the 49ers in a real game, but he didn’t wait long to make an impact. On the Chiefs’ first drive of the game, Foster is able to stick with KC wideout Chris Conley, breaking up the pass in coverage. The 49ers’ offense wasn’t able to get anything going early in the game, except for this Matt Breida run. The NFL’s leading rusher added 90 yards to his rushing total on Sunday. A large chunk of those came on this cut-back play [url=http://www.49erscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-t-shirts]San Francisco 49ers T-Shirt[/url] , where Breida improvises for a huge gain.After falling behind 14-0 early, San Francisco’s offense was finally able to put together a string of plays to help them find their first touchdown of the afternoon. Head coach Kyle Shanahan draws up a beauty on the play-action fake to running back Alfred Morris, allowing Garoppolo to find fullback Kyle Juszczyk for a wide-open touchdown. 14-7, Chiefs.The defense didn’t have very many highlights in the first half, allowing touchdowns on each one of the Chiefs’ five drives. Foster comes up with one of the few bright spots, running across the formation to bring down the Chiefs’ running back for no gain. Even though he missed the first few games, it was refreshing to see Foster back on the field for San Francisco.Come for the Marquise Goodwin touchdown and stay for the Kendrick Bourne dance, as the 49ers start to claw back into the game. Garoppolo is able to find another wide open 49ers’ receiver for another easy score.Shanahan continued to show off his creativity late in the second half, as he runs an option play with Juszczyk, allowing him to either run or pitch the ball. The 49ers’ fullback tosses it off to Breida, who’s able to gain a significant amount on the play. An Andy Reid-like gimmickagainst Reid’s defense — creative.Now for some of the not-so-pretty highlights from Sunday’s game. Tackle Joe Staley has always been reliable, but the Chiefs’ pass rush was able to get the best of him on Sunday. In this one instance [url=http://www.49erscheapshops.com/cheap-authentic-hats]San Francisco 49ers Hats[/url] , Staley gets blown by easily, giving up the sack on Garoppolo.The 49ers were penalized 14 times for 147 yards on Sunday — A HUNDRED AND FORTY SEVEN YARDS — in case you missed that. A huge portion of that came on this poor call against corner K’Waun Williams. While it looked like his feet got tangled up with the Chiefs’ receiver, the referees didn’t see it like that, calling for a 31-yard pass interference penalty on Williams.This was nightmares of Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers combined into one play. Chiefs’ quarterback Patrick Mahomes is able to escape the 49ers’ pass rush, run around and find Conley for an easy touchdown. San Francisco heads to Los Angeles to take on the Chargers next, but will likely be without a lot of big names on their roster. Before the injury news sink in, enjoy some of the highlights from Sunday’s loss.
