Who wouldn’t want to run through a wall for this guy

Predict the 49ers’ first offensive play Kentavius Street Jersey White , tackle, and touchdown vs. Cardinals The San Francisco 49ers head into Week 5 of the NFL season, which means it’s prediction time once again! The 49ers came off a loss to the Los Angeles Chargers, but quarterback C.J. Beathard looked much better than anticipated. Now a better defense awaits them with the Arizona Cardinals. Despite the uptick in defense, the 49ers are in Santa Clara and should be able to win this one. The predictions will include:1. The first offensive play the 49ers will run/attempt to execute,2. The first player on defense (not special teams) who will make a tackle, and3. How the team’s first touchdown will be scored (if you think one will be scored).Here are the ground rules for the predictions.Offensive Play Prediction Guidelines: Try to be as specific as you can on what you think the 49ers’ first offensive play will be. Don’t just say “pass play” or “run play”. Instead, say “Beathard throws a slant route to Gar莽on for 7 yards” or “Alfred Morris runs right side and picks up three yards.” You can also predict incompletions, interceptions Womens Marquise Goodwin Jersey , fumbles, touchdowns, and even a safety if you really think that will happen on the first offensive play!Defensive Tackle Prediction Guidelines: Predicting the first defensive play is much more obscure, so this one is a simpler category -- project who you think will make the team’s first tackle that does not come on special teams or a returned interception/fumble.First Touchdown Against Arizona: If you do not think the 49ers will score a touchdown, then say “no touchdowns” as your answer. Otherwise, predict how you think the 49ers’ first offensive touchdown will be scored, along with the person(s) who will score. You can predict it to be on offense, defense, or special teams. If you predict a passing touchdown , name both the quarterback and the receiver.Here is the template you can copy+paste for your comments:First Offensive Play: First Defensive Tackle: First Touchdown:Here are my predictions.First Offensive Play: Handoff to Matt Breida who goues around the line and gains 10 yards. First Defensive Tackle:Reuben Foster of Larry FitzgeraldFirst Touchdown: Matt Breida 15 yard run out of shotgun formation through the A-gap Whenever there’s an anniversary of something epic, be it The Catch trilogy, or crazy celebrations, you know we have to bring it up. Today isn’t so much about a play, but it’s about a speech. A speech by one Samurai Mike, better known to you as Mike Singletary, AKA the former 49ers head coach who was better as a motivational speaker.Mike Nolan had just been fired as head coach and Singletary was promoted to interim head coach.All signs of logic wouldhave him going back to his duties as linebackers coach once the season was over and the 49ers had a coaching search. I’d like to think the above speech insured that didn’t happen. On this day 10 years ago, the 49ers faced the Seattle Seahawks in a home game. During the game tight end Vernon Davis was penalized for 15 yards after slapping a Seahawk player. Singletary didn’t just bench Vernon, he sent him to the showers. After the game Jimmy Garoppolo Jersey White , the press asked about it, and the above speech took place. Who wouldn’t want to run through a wall for this guy after that? The 49ers would go on to 5-4 under Singletary and he’d get the head coaching job as the season ended. This would prove to be a mistake, as Singletary’s final year had him taking the team to 6-10. The very next year, Jim Harbaugh took essentially the same roster and to over double the win total. Beyond being ignored for what could have been a great Coors Light commercial, this speech also is what changed the attitude of Vernon Davis for the better. Getting pulled from the game and being told he’d be better off on the sidelines shaped him up as a player and a person and eventually led to the Vernon Post. Davis would be an anchor on the 49ers offense for Singletary and Harbaugh before his eventual trading in the Jim Tomsula-era. For a slow Friday night, this video is always a great watch. If you can’t see the video or watch it here, you can always go here.
