On the 49ers podcast with Joe:
#1 The 49ers are coming off another win from last week in Washington in a muddy, rainy game. The Niners got three field goals out of kicker Robbie Gould. Good enough for the 9-0 victory.
#2 In spite of the win, there were some things that quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo would have like to accomplish like throwing a couple touchdowns. Was it the rainy conditions that prevented that or were Washington’s pass rushers not giving him enough time?
#3 Talk about the acquisition of wide receiver Emmanuel Sanders, who has 30 catches, 367 yards and two touchdowns. Head coach Kyle Shanahan said “Emmanuel is the man” at wide receiver.
#4 Sanders doesn’t come to Santa Clara without some nuances. While in Denver, he had a fight with a teammate Courtland Sutton in practice. Sanders said Denver was “like living in a world of suck” and finally, Denver general manager John Elway said of Sanders: “Emmanuel had issues and we had issues that’s why it was a good time for us to go in a different directions.”
#5 The 49ers host the Carolina Panthers this Sunday. Can Garoppolo have a better day throwing against the Panthers than he did against Washington in this one coming up?
