SANTA CLARA https://www.49ersfanshop.com/Marquise-Goodwin-Jersey , Calif. (AP) —he NFC West together last year as longtime friends and colleagues tasked with revitalizing struggling franchises.McVay has done a much quicker job overhauling the Los Angeles Rams than Shanahan has with the San Francisco 49ers. The teams headed in opposite directions meet for the first time this season on Sunday when the Rams (6-0) hope to remain the NFL’s only unbeaten team when they visit the struggling 49ers (1-5).McVay credits Shanahan for his success, pointing to his four years as an assistant in Washington when Shanahan was offensive coordinator for much of his development.“I wouldn’t really say it was a give and take,” McVay said. “It was more me taking information from him, and him a lot of giving. I think more than anything, just being committed to an identity. The way he prepared was so impressive. The way that he saw the game. His ability to make things look the same and attack defensive structures and rules and manipulate those. He’s a great coach. I learned so much from him.”That knowledge has helped McVay build one of the NFL’s top teams with a dynamic offense led by quarterback Jared Goff and running back Todd Gurley that ranks third in scoring (32.7 points per game) and second in yards per play (7.16) after winning the NFC West last season.The Niners haven’t had nearly as much success, winning just six games last year and struggling mightily this year after quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo went down with a season-ending knee injury in Week 3.San Francisco showed glimpses of becoming what Shanahan envisioned with five straight wins to end last season with Garoppolo at quarterback, but the team has a 1-13 record under Shanahan when either Brian Hoyer or C.J. Beathard starts.Beathard has shown improvement in his second year, leading San Francisco to back-to-back 400-yard games, but his seven turnovers in three starts contributed to the losses.While the results have been different and the teams take slightly divergent approaches — the Rams preferring three-receiver sets and the 49ers relying more on a two-back offense with fullback Kyle Juszczyk — both coaches have taken what they did together in Washington to their current teams.“He’s a good coach and a real good friend. We got to put a lot of that stuff in together,” Shanahan said. “Just like you do everywhere and everyone you work with, you’re always a product of your environment. You carry things over, you change a few things. We’ve both gone some different directions over the last few years, but when you do turn on the tape it’s very similar.”Here are some other things to watch:TAKE THE TOP OFFHaving a healthy Marquise Goodwin last week provided a big boost to San Francisco’s offense. He made four catches for 126 yards, including touchdowns of 67 and 30 yards in the first half. Perhaps even more importantly, his sprinter’s speed forces defenses to provide help in coverage, opening up holes in the running game and opportunities for other receivers.“Guys are respecting his speed, and you’ve got to respect his speed,” Beathard said. “He can take the tops off of coverages, so it definitely helps having him out there.”GOOD GURLEYGurley is off to a scintillating start with 870 yards from scrimmage and 11 TDs through six games. Since the merger in 1970, only two other players have reached those marks in six games: Priest Holmes for Kansas City in 2002 Joe Staley Jersey , Emmitt Smith for Dallas in 1995. Gurley ran for 208 yards and two TDs last week in Denver. Gurley had 149 yards from scrimmage and three TDs in his only game against the Niners last year.RUN TO DAYLIGHTRaheem Mostert had just 13 carries since entering the NFL in 2015 before having a breakthrough performance last week for the 49ers. Mostert carried 12 times for 87 yards at Green Bay, forming a potent rushing duo with Matt Breida. San Francisco ranks third in rushing with 142.5 yards per game and a 5.12 average per carry.FAMILY AFFAIRThe 49ers are hosting alumni weekend and will be wearing 1994 throwback jerseys to honor their last Super Bowl championship team. That team means a lot to McVay, whose grandfather, John, helped build the 49ers dynasty as general manager. Sean McVay listed several of his favorite players from that era, including Steve Young, Jerry Rice, Dexter Carter and Merton Hanks. He also said he had a Deion Sanders jersey from that 1994 season.“It’s always weird going against them,” he said. “But you feel so fortunate just to have the family history my grandpa established and developed.” This might make trading difficult."WhiteFanposts Fanshots Sections 49ers Salary CapLevi’s Stadium Events49ers Transactions49ers Injury News49ers Press Conferences & Conference Calls2019 NFL Draft: 49ers picks, mock drafts, news, rumors, analysisWhat does the Giants disinterest in Dwayne Haskins mean for the 49ers? New,210commentsThis might make trading difficult. PDTShareTweetShareShareWhat does the Giants disinterest in Dwayne Haskins mean for the 49ers? Mock drafts have been following a strange formula. At No. 1, it’s the Cardinals taking Kyler Murray. No. 2-5 is the trio of Quinnen Williams, Josh Allen, and Nick Bosa getting taken off the board along with someone else to fill that slate. No. 6 has been somewhat consistent with the Giants taking Dwayne Haskins. Last week, there were numerous reports that the Giants were not interested in Haskins and weren’t going to be doing much work. On ESPN’s Breaking Big Blue podcast, Dianna Russini went into detail on how quarterback may not be in the Giants’ plans: So what does this mean? Well it might make trading, at least for Haskins Solomon Thomas Color Rush Jersey , not happening at No. 2. The Giants were the ones many thought would put up the draft capitol to go get Haskins at No. 2, leapfrogging the Oakland Raiders. If the Giants aren’t interested in Haskins, that leaves him for the Raiders and eliminates the two-way bidding war to get him. At No. 7, behind the Giants,is the Jacksonville Jaguars. They will need a quarterback, but they signed Nick Foles and won’t be wanting to do a trade this year for one. Then there’s the Denver Broncos at 10, the Cincinnati Bengals at 11 and Miami Dolphins at 13. Of those three, the Dolphins would be the ones to really make an investment, but to trade all the way down to the No. 2 spot for a quarterback is going to take an awful lot. Plus, now that the Giants have two draft picks and aren’t looking at Haskins, that makes them a more valuable trade partner. 13 to 2 is much more expensive than 13 to 6. If the Raiders show any interest in a quarterback and the Dolphins want Haskins, then the No. 2 trade becomes a possibility, but it won’t be cheap and Haskins is a player highly unlikely to command that kind of deal. These three teams may be battling it out for someone else besides Dwayne Haskins. The Broncos have been linked to quarterbacks and other teams could go into No. 8 or 9 to keep John Elway from getting his QB of the future. Any way you look at it, if the Giants don’t take Haskins it’s going to make any team in the teens think twice about offloading draft picks to pass the Raiders. That is assuming the Raiders want Haskins at all. All of this is dependent on the Cardinals going with Murray. If they pass on him, the Giants and Raiders could then maybe pounce for No. 2, but if they weren’t going to get to No. 1 for him, one spot doesn’t seem like much of a difference in this scenario. So unless someone reaaaaaaaallllly wants Bosa, the 49ers might not be able to get out of the No. 2 pick.
