Niners Now, the Official Blog of the San Francisco 49ers

Post by War on Tue Jun 04, 2013 11:16 pm

The San Francisco 49ers took little time in replacing recently fired head coach Jamez Poor on Tuesday, as they announced the inking of a three-year contract with ex-Broncos head coach Dan Allen.

The 49ers, who have fallen on poor times in recent seasons, said they are hoping to improve on their 4-12 finish in 2017.

Allen, who finished his tenure in Denver with a 37-59 record, isn't worried that past disappointments will overshadow his tenure with San Francisco.

"My time in Denver didn't go the way I wanted, and that's something I'll always regret," Allen said. "This opportunity with the '9ers is a fresh start -- a chance to build upon past successes and learn from past mistakes. We've got a very talented, veteran group here and the hope is to compete immediately."

Among the positions that may see an overhaul this offseason is under center, where former-Broncos draft pick Brock Osweiler resides as a possible starter. Allen was one of the key figures in sending Osweiler packing several years back when Purdue alumnus Justin Zumwalt was established as the starting quarterback in Denver.

Stay tuned for more offseason news!

Camp/Offseason Report

Post by War on Thu Jun 13, 2013 11:49 pm

It didn't take long for the Allen regime to shake up San Francisco.

Within hours of taking over as head coach and general manager for the 49ers, Dan Allen made it clear that things would change to return a struggling franchise to better times.

The first step forward was the jettison of several under-performing players, including running back LaRod Stephens-Howling and punter Andy Lee. Next, struggling offensive tackle J'Marcus Webb was informed that the '9ers would not be offering him a new contract.

Further moves were made via trade, with tight end Dustin Keller headed to Seattle, linebacker Cassius Blassingame headed to Buffalo and defensive end Marcus Warren sent to Minnesota in return for veteran defensive end Brian Robison, defensive front seven depth in end Vinny Curry and 'backer Joseph Kisseberth and several draft picks.

Allen nabbed several players he cultivated in his days with Denver in free agency, including tight end Jake Mckinley, cornerback Cassius Vaughn, defensive tackle Letroy Guion and cornerback Tamani Taylor. Other acquisitions included starting right guard Amini Silatolu and young quarterback Tevyn Davis.

All seemed to quiet down on Sunday as draft night was only hours away, only for news of Allen spinning a couple more deals, shipping out quarterbacks Daniel Zagzebski and Sam Aiken along with receiver Eddie Boswell for veteran outside 'backer K.J. Wright and draft considerations.

2018 NFL Draft
2nd Round, Pick 3 - Wyoming DT Ricky Richardson 6'4" 345 lbs
A pure nose tackle, Richardson is very smart and mature for his age. While a bit raw on technique, he plays with intensity and utilizes his strength and size to swallow up blockers. Richardson should serve a rotational role as a run-stopping tackle in his rookie season, although Allen has said he plans to utilize the big-bodied tackle in a "few surprise ways."
2nd Round, Pick 22 - Ohio OT Justin Roth 6'7" 216 lbs
Roth is one of the more athletic tackles you'll come across, as he's a converted tight end. This doesn't mean he's disadvantaged when it comes to blocking at the professional level -- Roth managed a solid 28 bench reps at the NFL Combine in February -- and it's his athleticism that attracted the attention of San Francisco's scouts. Roth is expected to serve as a swing tackle in his first season.
3rd Round, Pick 9 - Washington CB DeVaunte Hall 5'11" 195 lbs
With a 4.34 40-yard dash time at the NFL Combine, it's no wonder Hall was drafted higher than some expected. While Hall's coverage skills are a bit suspect at this point in his career, he has experience as both a returner and gunner on special teams that will help get time on the field right away.
4th Round, Pick 7 - Purdue P Charlie Trimble 5'11" 187 lbs
The first kicker or punter taken in the draft, Trimble is known for having a booming leg. With the release of veteran punter Andy Lee, Allen looks to have gone out and found the best available replacement in Trimble.
4th Round, Pick 32 - Towson State DT Cedric Chance 6'2" 297 lbs
While the first tackle San Fran selected filled more of a nose-tackle role in his college years, Chance made a name for himself at lesser known Towson St. University by getting to the quarterback -- registering 22 sacks from the interior line in his three years as a starter. Allen has stated that Chance will see time as a rotational rusher in three-front sets as a rookie.
6th Round, Pick 7 - Whitworth DT Tyler Nichol 6'2" 309 lbs

Another small school pick, Nichol may not be too quick, but he's extremely balanced in both pass-rushing and run-stopping abilities. All indications poin to Nichol possibly spending his rookie season on the practice squad as he becomes more accustomed to the professional level.
7th Round, Pick 19 - Troy HB Kendall Kearse 5'10" 244 lbs

A plodding goal line back in his time at Troy, Kearse scored 14 touchdowns as a redshirt senior. With the addition of Ahmad Bradshaw, Kearse likely has an uphill battle to a roster spot.


Key Additions:
DE Brian Robison, HB Ahmad Bradshaw, DT Letroy Guion, QB Tevyn Davis, CB Cassius Vaughn, TE Jake Mckinley, OG Amini Silatolu, OLB K.J. Wright, WR Eddie Royal
Key Departures:
TE Dustin Keller (trade-SEA), OLB Cassius Blassingame (trade-BUF), DE Marcus Warren (trade-BUF), QB Daniel Zagzebski (trade-GB), OLB Moise Fokou (FA), OLB Parys Haralson (FA)

49ers 33, Falcons 29

Post by War on Fri Jun 14, 2013 11:10 pm

49ers Top Falcons in Allen Regime Debut
49ers quarterback Brock Osweiler threw two touchdowns en route to a 117.2 QB rating against Atlanta.

So far, so good for the 49ers, who ousted the Falcons in San Francisco tonight in a gripping fourth quarter comeback.
San Francisco, who jumped to an early 20-7 lead in the second quarter, struggled to stop Atlanta's pass attack in the second half and further dropped to a 29-23 deficit following an explosive return by Javonta Fortt with just over five minutes remaining in the game. Fortt also returned a kick for a touchdown earlier in the first quarter and could have returned another later in the game if not for a costly holding penalty.
The combination backfield of the 49ers put together an aggressive drive downfield for the go-ahead score, capped off by an eight-yard touchdown pass from Brock Osweiler to veteran tight end Vernon Davis with only 1:50 remaining in the game. From there San Francisco's veteran defense, led by the likes of Donte Whitner and Patrick Willis, managed to force a failed fourth-down attempt by the Falcons -- and ultimately secure the win for the 49ers.
"Our defense went out there and performed in the second half," head coach Dan Allen said. "Towards the middle of the game Atlanta got on a roll and we had a tough time stopping them. It showed resolve for our guys to battle back and pull out a win at home."
While the defense may get much of the credit for the late-game stops, the offense managed to create an absurd split in possession with 26:04 minutes for the '9ers and only 5:56 for the Falcons. Allen made sure to point out how well the offense controlled the ball and moved down the field on every drive.
"One of the real question marks heading into the season was on the offensive side under center and in the backfield. Brock (Osweiler) struggled in the final game of the preseason (versus Tennessee) and our committee of runners failed to distinguish themselves in exhibition play," Allen said. "Brock took a big step forward today and controlled this offense. Each of our backs made big contributions that kept drives going and let Brock and the passing attack flourish."
Although the 49ers were satisfied by the win, they're not resting after a week one victory.
"We pulled it out at the end, but it seemed early on we couldn't capitalize on several opportunities," Osweiler said. "It's not acceptable to get in the redzone and kick field goals. Every time we're there we're thinking touchdown, and we need to work on executing better towards the goal line if we're going to continue winning games."
The 49ers take on the NFC West division rival Arizona Cardinals at home next week.
San Francisco Locks Up Impending Free Agents
It took the 49ers little time to reach agreements with several veteran free-agents this season, as head coach and general manager Dan Allen stated it was a "major priority to get these deals done before we head into the season."
Among those who signed are free safety Dashon Goldson (3 years, $22.5 million), defensive end Brian Robison (6 years, $72 million), receiver Kenny Britt (5 years, $42.5 million), outside linebacker K.J. Wright (4 years, $23 million) and right tackle Anthony Davis (5 years, $7.5 million). The team announced that they're still negotiating with the agents for former 12th-overall pick Winford Jackson.
San Francisco had previously signed reserve safety A.J. Harvell to a three-year extension, making Jackson, running back Ahmad Bradshaw, linebackers Jonathan Broadnax and Miles Burris, tight end Gifford Moss and receiver B.J. Hill the remaining free-agents at seasons' end. Only Jackson has agreed to contract negotiations with the 49ers during the season.

Rams 42, 49ers 21

Post by War on Thu Jun 20, 2013 8:19 pm

49ers Drop Second in a Row in St. Louis
49ers quarterback Brock Osweiler threw five interceptions in San Francisco's loss to the Rams.

Following an exciting debut to the season by defeating Atlanta at home, the 49ers have compounded on last week's woes by losing to the Rams in a 42-21 blowout.
San Francisco dug themselves into a deep hole early in the game, giving up a first-play 72-yard touchdown pass to Jamarkus Bailey. Following the early defensive blunder, starting quarterback Brock Osweiler threw interceptions that were returned for touchdowns on consecutive drives, including one in the red zone following an excellent drive spear-headed by Osweiler.
Another long touchdown pass by Joe Flacco to Bailey extended the deficit to 28-0 early in the second quarter. The 49ers' first score would only come within the final two minutes of the first half, as Samson Bales picked up tough yardage to score on the ground at the goal line, making the game 28-7. St. Louis scored once again before the half ended, keeping a 28-point lead as teams headed to the locker room at half time.
The offense did little to shrink the margin until late in the second half, as Osweiler threw they another pick-six in the third quarter to make the score 42-7 without a score until late in the game. Bales managed to pick up another tough score on the ground while slot receiver Eddie Royal picked up his first touchdown of the year on a 16-yard pass from Osweiler.
"Our offense simply wasn't out there to win the game," San Francisco coach Dan Allen said. "It was disappointing to watch Brock (Osweiler) struggle after two well-played games to start the season."
The loss to St. Louis highlighted an important new feature of the offense under Allen -- the run game. Although the offense only managed 48 yards on the ground against the Rams, Allen turned to the tough-running Bales in scoring situations to get it done -- something that wasn't seen much in his tenure at Denver.
"What we're trying to do here is establish a well-versed offense that attacks on the ground as well as through the air," Allen said. "Samson (Bales) is a remarkable short-yardage back that we feel complements the quick cutting talents of Ahmad (Bradshaw) very well."
The 49ers take on Chicago at home this upcoming Sunday.
Practice Notes
Tight end Jake Mckinley, who suffered a bruised knee in the loss to St. Louis, was once again at practice and looks good to go versus the Bears this week. Mckinley tallied eight receptions for 67 yards through the first three games.
Monday's practice saw some interesting developments under center, as Brock Osweiler was seen to be sharing first-team snaps with backup Tevyn Davis. Head coach Dan Allen had no comment when asked about the possibility of Davis starting against Chicago.
In addition, San Francisco scouts were in attendance at workouts conducted by Alex Smith at USC on Monday and Brandon Weeden at Oklahoma St. University on Tuesday, among other teams' representatives. Scouting director James Simon assured that the 49ers were only conducting due diligence on free-agent veterans should an injury occur during the season.

Seahawks 38, 49ers 36

Post by War on Tue Jun 25, 2013 12:08 am

Kicker Woes K.O. '9ers in Seattle
49ers kicker Greg Zuerlein missed two field goals (54, 57) in the 38-36 loss to the Seahawks.
The 49ers gave it a run on Sunday, with the home team Seahawks coming out on top in a late-game turn of events.
Heading into the fourth quarter with the ball and a 28-21 lead, it looked like Seattle would be able to run away with the win if they could simply score and run the clock. Instead, following a Seattle score to make the score 35-21, San Francisco went on a 15-3 run within the last five minutes of the game to come within only a two-point conversion to tie with 11 seconds remaining -- which Seattle stopped when 49ers back Samson Bales came up inches short on a dive up the middle.
"It was tough to come up short so late in the game," 49ers head coach Dan Allen said. "Our team gave it a hell of a go. I know we'll be questioned for going for two not once, but twice, but the staff and myself stand behind the decision."

San Francisco's first two-point attempt came after a Jonathan Broadnax fumble return for a touchdown that put the score to 35-30 in the waning minutes of the fourth quarter. The conversion would have allowed the 49ers to tie the game with a field goal should the defense stop erratic Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson. The second two-point conversion came after Brock Osweiler's touchdown pass to receiver Earl Bennett to decrease the deficit to two points (Steven Hauschka's 49-yard field goal with 1:30 remaining pushed the score to 38-30 prior to the score).
The late game heroics, including two second half scores engineered by Osweiler, overshadowed a poor performance the offensive unit earlier in the game. Osweiler threw three interceptions, all of which resulted in scoring drives for the Seahawks, while starting running back Ahmad Bradshaw was credited with a lost fumble late in the game -- on the drive that could have secured the game within the final two minutes of the competition.
"Our offense is still a work in progress," Allen said of the performances by Osweiler and the running back corps. "It was admirable how Brock (Osweiler) was able to come back and move the ball down the field after several poor plays earlier in the game. He has the talent, it's all about putting it together on the field -- and that's just what (quarterbacks coach) Johnny (Worrell) is working on every week."
San Francisco also saw familiar issues in the kicking game, as Greg Zuerlein was responsible for his second game of the year with two missed field goals (54- and 57-yards). Zuerlein is a perfect 7-7 in every other game. Allen had no comment when asked if San Francisco would make a move to bring in a veteran kicker.

San Francisco takes on the Eagles in Philadelphia after their week 6 bye.
Ahmad Brooks Among Recent Transactions by 49ers
The San Francisco 49ers put together two separate pairs of transactions following Sunday's game, jettisoning veteran linebacker Ahmad Brooks in the process.
Devon Bradley, a reserve offensive guard who was inactive for San Francisco's first five games, was waived in favor of veteran guard Brandon Mosley. In addition, the 49ers signed free-agent linebacker Sean Spence, who spent time on Oakland's roster prior to preseason cuts.
Injury Bug Hits 49ers Again
A week after losing starting linebacker Aldon Smith to a fractured arm versus Chicago, the 49ers will again miss a role player in Jake Mckinley after the tight end suffered broken ribs in the first few minutes of Sunday's game versus Seattle.
Mckinley, who has nine receptions for 106 yards on the season, suffered the injury on his lone offensive play for the game -- in which Mckinley caught a 19 yard post route and ran for another 20 yards before taking a big hit from free safety Earl Thomas. Mckinley will sit out of practice during San Francisco's bye week, with the hopes that he'll be able to start practicing after returning from the 49ers' game in Philadelphia in week 7.
