On the 49ers podcast with J Hawkes:
#1 The 49ers who are on a bye week this Sunday and have lost three in a row and three games out of first place in the NFC West and have two injured quarterbacks have a lot to recover from going into next week’s home game against the Indianapolis Colts.
#2 On quarterbacks injuries Jimmy Garoppolo left calf soreness and Trey Lance twisted left knee will they get enough recovery time to get a start for next week’s game against the Colts.
#3 Garoppolo who missed week 5 and ranks 18th in passing in the NFL is he going to be commodity of sorts as the 49ers are rumored to be interested in shopping him or will they hang onto him because Lance isn’t ready yet?
#4 Lance who carried during the last game against in Arizona and got injured running the ball and head coach Kyle Shanahan and said one of many times that Lance isn’t quite ready yet to step into the starting role. Lance was 15-29, 192 yards, carried for 92 yards and threw for one touchdown.
#5 The 49ers are 17th place in total defense and place 11th in rushing and it’s unlikely that they will not not move up the scale to Super Bowl caliber numbers over their next 12 games anytime soon as the 49ers injuries of DeForest Buckner and Raheem Mostert are just too hard to replace at this juncture.

On the 49ers podcast with J Hawkes:
#1 Joe, San Francisco 49ers (2-2) quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo rested on Thursday sitting out practice as the 49ers get ready to face the Arizona Cardinals (4-0) at State Farm Stadium in Glendale. According to head coach Kyle Shanahan Garoppolo will rest for today’s game and Trey Lance will get the start .
#2 Garoppolo’s practice sessions if any has been very limited and Garoppolo has said that his calf injury still hurts to the point where he can’t push off and throw a pass.
#3 Shanahan said he wants to protect Garoppolo and George Kittle telling the media “sometimes you have to protect them from themselves” Shanahan said that Kittle is doubtful for today’s game in Arizona as well. What will it be like without Garoppolo and Kittle in the line up?
#4 Lance has looked good in practice and the few snaps he’s taken in the regular season how much of a test will this be with Lance being under center and starting the game against the Cardinals today?
#5 The Cardinals as a team that are a big test in of itself as they are 4-0 and quarterback Kyle Murray has been leaving defenses flat footed when he runs the keeper. Murray in Sunday’s last game against the Los Angeles Rams threw for 268 yards, two touchdowns and wasn’t intercepted and won the game convincingly 37-20. Missing some of the players to injuries will the 49ers be headed into a hornet’s nest today?

#2 Rogers whose the superior of the two quarterbacks going on Sunday was one that the Packers had lure back into the fold as Rogers was prepared to go shopping for a new team but Rogers out of dedication to the Packers organization signed on for another season.
#3 Rogers certainly too a lot of criticism after the Packers got crushed by the New Orleans Saints in the Superdome 38-3 during week 1. Rogers just was off missing receivers and the Saints line was in his face all day long.

On the 49ers podcast with J Hawkes:
#1 When at a recent practice about who will start Sep 12th’s opener in Detroit San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan told the media scrum standing about “I bet you guys could figure it out” Joe just wanted to get your take on Shanahan’s answer?
#2 It’s been 357 days since defensive end Nick Bosa had torn his ACL and cartilage in his left knee. Bosa sat out all three pre season games how concerned is Shanahan about Bosa returning to top playing shape to start the season?
#3 Bosa has only been involved in 10 snaps of the closed to the media for full practices for 11 on 11 sessions. It’s hard to judge in that small amount of time but how Bosa will do but Shanahan said he’s expecting a lot from Bosa.
#4 49ers general manager John Lynch said that pass rusher Dee Ford will be used cautiously, Ford who had a third serious back injury and missed 15 games last season. Lynch said Ford has looked well in practices and drills. Ford didn’t play in any pre season games and his expected to take 15-20 snaps during games in pass rushing plays.

Tartt reportedly has looked like he hasn’t missed a step since returning to practice Aug 25th. Tartt participated on two practices during the week and against the Raiders last Sunday was in 29 snaps in the last pre season game.

On the 49ers podcast with David:
#1 Former San Francisco 49ers left tackle Joe Staley did an interview this week on NFL Total Access saying that the competition between quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and Trey Lance will breed success.
#2 Staley spent three seasons on the line protecting Garoppolo from getting hit on the blind side, he was there to see Garoppolo successes and his struggles and says that whoever wins the job at quarterback will work hard to get the number one position.
#3 Staley also said that the Garoppolo is 24-9 including post season and the 49ers are 7-26 without him so despite all the energy behind Lance Garoppolo still brings in that valuable experience.

#1 What is one of the things that you look forward to in watching Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes. He is expected to be throwing all day and he is one of the best being mobile and getting rid of the ball.
#2 In Mahomes last game against the Tennessee Titans he threw for 23 for 35 and 294 yards and three touchdowns
#3 San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo was only six for eight 77 yards against the Green Bay Packers last week and still won. Can Garoppolo throw that way again and get away with it.

#4 On ESPN Stephen A said there was no way that the 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo outplays the Kansas City Chiefs Pat Mahomes on Sunday
#5 How important is it that Dusty Baker hired by the Houston Astros who are trying to get away from the sign stealing scandal and Dusty is a player’s manager, doesn’t use technology or computers to manage a game or need to steal signs.
