49ers expected to win 10 or fewer games in 2020 by Pro Football Focus

The 49ers went 13-3 last season, barely edging out the Green Bay Packers and New Orleans Saints for the top seed in the NFC playoffs. San Francisco should be good again in 2020, and certainly capable of contending for a playoff spot -- if not more. A few days after San Francisco's heartbreaking loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LIV, early NFL season win totals were posted, and the 49ers were given an over/under of 10.5 victories.

If Tom Brady wants the 49ers, would the 49ers want Tom Brady?

Patriots quarterback Tom Brady will be a free agent in March, able to sign with any team. One potential spot would be in the place not far from where Brady was raised, playing for the team he cheered on as a child: The San Francisco 49ers. With Santa Clara a mere 39 miles from his hometown of San Mateo — and with the 49ers currently loaded on both sides of the ball — Brady may be fascinated by the possibility of pursuing Ring No. 7 with a franchise that would match the Patriots with Ring No. 6.

Why 49ers cutting Jimmy Garoppolo for Tom Brady truly makes no sense

Tom Brady and the Super Bowl just can't let each other go. Super Bowl LIV was the first time Brady and the New England Patriots weren't playing in the Big Game since the 2015 season. As the finger pointing began -- mostly towards coach Kyle Shanahan or QB Jimmy Garoppolo -- after the 49ers' collapse against the Kansas City Chiefs, somehow, some way, Brady's name began popping up again.

No way around it: 49ers straight up choked away Super Bowl LIV

The San Francisco 49ers seemed poised to cap their wildly unexpected and stunningly impressive season with the ultimate prize: hoisting the Lombardi Trophy. At a time when he needed to take over, Garoppolo wilted when it mattered most. “It's pretty brutal,” said 49ers tight end George Kittle.

The officials didn't cost the 49ers the Super Bowl, and here's why

As the Kansas City Chiefs' points stacked up late and the lead began to pull away from the San Francisco 49ers in Super Bowl LIV, the NFL avoided the type of officiating scrutiny that shrouded last year's postseason. The pass interference against 49ers tight end George Kittle on a monster chunk play at the end of the first half was relegated to a shrugging gripe. Niners quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo seemingly taking a helmet-to-helmet hit on the same play faded.

49ers’ Katie Sowers Makes History As 1st Woman Coach At Super Bowl

MIAMI GARDENS, Fla. (AP) — The San Francisco 49ers’ Katie Sowers made history Sunday night, becoming the first woman to coach in the Super Bowl. The first woman coach to help win a Lombardi Trophy remains up for grabs. Sowers came in as an offensive assistant with the 49ers who just happened to be the first woman ever to coach in this game. She also is the first openly gay coach. But she missed out on capping her trailblazing night by winning a championship ring when the 49ers couldn’t hold the ...

Chiefs' Tyrann Mathieu 'grateful' Kyle Shanahan, 49ers abandoned run game

Kyle Shanahan is going to be questioned a lot, and frankly, it will be deserved. The 49ers' coach had his team in position to win Super Bowl LIV, leading 20-10 with 11:57 remaining in the fourth quarter after safety Tarvarius Moore intercepted Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes and returned the ball to San Francisco's own 20-yard-line. Up to that point in the game, the 49ers had averaged over 6.2 yards per rush in building their advantage.
