San Francisco 49ers podcast with Marko Ukalovic: Would 49ers have been better off just staying in San Francisco?; Troubles with City of Santa Clara

Levi Stadium the site of all operation cost disputes over the last few years between the San Francisco 49ers and the City of Santa Clara. Would the 49ers in hindsight been better off staying and building their own stadium in San Francisco? (file photo from Hochtief)

On 49ers podcast with Marko:

#1 The City of Santa Clara and the San Francisco 49ers continue to their embroil over stadium operation costs. The 49ers offered Santa Clara a $50,000 increase from the $650,000 to $700,000 to the general fund. In all the 49ers want to settle the dispute at a total of $4 million from $3.3 million.

#2 Marko, Santa Clara Mayor Lisa Gillmor said a proposal given to city council members by the 49ers ten minutes before a meeting was ridiculous because it did give her or city council members time to contemplate the impacts of the proposal. The conflict was not resolved despite the 49ers latest proposal.

#3 According to 49ers spokesman Rahul Chandhok the 49ers had lengthy discussions on how to settle the dispute with the Santa Clara city attorney over the last three months and that draft proposals were discussed and shared over the last two months and this should not have been a surprise to Gillmor and the city council.

#4 In hindsight considering all the problems with the city the 49ers have had over the operation costs with the city and some fans complaints about sitting in the hot sun on August and September days wouldn’t the team have been better off building the stadium and staying in San Francisco.

#5 Turning to the 49ers on the field the 49ers were shutout on Thursday in Houston 17-0 and 49ers quarterback Trey Lance said that there were mistakes and the team will get better and get ready for opening day on Sep 11th in Chicago.

#6 Marko, how doubtful is the offensive line was it a matter of Lance not getting enough time to throw and had to keep running because of the Houston Texans pass rush?

On the 49ers podcast with Joe Hawkes:

#1 Joe, Jimmy Garoppolo is in camp his throws look good and the 49ers are still shopping him and if he remains with the team will be a back up for quarterback Trey Lance.

#2 What would you point to as the main reason why the 49ers weren’t able to deal Garoppolo yet at this point.

#3 Deebo Samuel in the off season wanted to leave the 49ers in meeting with the press never gave an answer why he was seeking to go to another team but the answer might be follow the money and it followed him $73.5 million on a three year extension.

#4 Samuel did admit getting a deal done gave him the feeling of pressure if he was going to get a good deal on the other side of it how much pressure was on head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch to get it done?

#5 The 49ers host the Green Bay Packers on Fri Aug 12th in their first pre season game what’s the chances of seeing quarterbacks Lance and the Packers Aaron Rogers getting a few snaps?

San Francisco 49ers podcast with Joe Hawkes: Lance has nothing but good things to say about Garoppolo

San Francisco 49ers who met with the news media this week said that he had nothing but good things to say about former starting quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo (San Francisco Chronicle file photo)

On the 49ers podcast with J Hawkes:

#1 San Francisco 49ers quarterback Trey Lance said there is nothing weird about saying that he can only say nothing but good things about 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo who guided and mentored Lance when he first came to the 49ers.

#2 Lance said that Garoppolo could have made it hell for him when he first got the Niners but he didn’t and he helped Lance out with everything.

#3 Garoppolo is not going to be released by the 49ers but the 49ers are still shopping Garoppolo. The Miami Dolphins have showed interest in Garoppolo. The best time is to trade now.

#4 Joe, talk about linebacker Azeez Al-Shaair who had off season surgeries on his left knee and left elbow. Al-Shaair said that his knee surgery recovery is not as bad as recovery from the elbow surgery.

#5 Yes it’s only pre season but it means a lot to a lot of people everywhere when the Green Bay Packers come calling on Fri Aug 12 against the 49ers at Levi Stadium. How much will you see of Aaron Rogers and Trey Lance in that one?

San Francisco 49ers podcast with Joe Hawkes: It’s pretty much official Lance to be starting quarterback; Teams balking on Garoppolo because of huge contract

On the 49ers podcast with Joe Hawkes:

#1 Joe sources pretty much say that the 49ers starting quarterback will be Trey Lance it’s really been no secret and there has been no takers on quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo so will that mean that Garoppolo can participate in practices with the team at some point?

#2 The Seattle Seahawks, New York Giants, Houston Texans, Detroit Lions, Miami Dolphins, and Cleveland Browns but for different reasons any deal fell through.

#3 Head coach Kyle Shanahan was certain that the 49ers will find a trade partner for Garoppolo the hard part of that offering is the remaining year on his contract is $25 million and no team wants to get saddled with that unless the interested team wants to retain some of that contract.

#4 One of the other reasons the Niners want to move Garoppolo is because of Nick Bosa’s contract calls for $33 million and with a guaranteed price of $17 million and they want some cap room.

#5 Joe, the latest on the Deebo Samuel contract talks nothing imminent the 49ers want to get a deal and have Samuel before their first exhibition game against the Minnesota Vikings on Sat Aug 20th.

San Francisco 49ers podcast with Joe Hawkes: 49ers lacking at offensive linemen; Is Garoppolo all but gone?

On the SF 49ers podcast with J Hawkes:

#1 Joe, talk about head coach Kyle Shanahan and how he’s drafted in the off season he’s seems like he’s done well in all areas except at offensive lineman.

#2 Since Shanahan and Lynch have taken over the team of their 47 draft picks only seven of them have been linemen there haven’t been that many offensive linemen that have neither been picked up, drafted, or traded for.

#3 Sources at the Houston Texans made it clear that 49er quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo will not be joining the team anytime soon as talks between the Garoppolo camp and the Seattle Seahawks have shown some possibilities.

#4 One of the reasons why the Texans are not interested in signing Garoppolo is because they have their sights set on Stanford quarterback David Mills who could be a starter for the Texans someday.

#5 As the 49ers are all but set on making Trey Lance their starting quarterback can you see any possibility for the 49ers keeping Garoppolo or is all but gone?

On the 49ers podcast with J Hawkes:

#1 After the thumb injury sustained in Tennessee during Thursday Night Football on Dec 23 and some of the criticism you hear from the media that he could be through with the San Francisco 49ers (8-7) what is your reaction from that.

#2 Head coach Kyle Shanahan sounded quite the opposite when speaking to the media on Wednesday saying that Garoppolo has a thumb sprain might just be able to get back in the starting line up for Sunday’s game.

#3 Meanwhile back up quarterback Trey Lance back on Oct 10th while playing in Arizona against the Cardinals had suffered a knee injury and what is reported severe damaged vocal cords (from audibles on the practice squad) is close to being named the starting quarterback this Sunday.

#4 Some of the football analysts and journalist have said that it is time for Lance to take over the reigns of starting quarterback and after Garoppolo’s performance against the Titans that pretty much suffices that. If true is Lance ready being a rookie for such a big role.

#5 The 49ers have won five of their last seven games, lost a tough game to the Titans in their last outing and host a Houston Texans (4-11) who have won their last two games. How do you see this match up Sunday at Levi Stadium this Sunday.

San Francisco 49ers podcast with David Zizmor: Roster moves made; Montana says Jones is the better choice than Lance; plus more

On the 49ers podcast with David:

#1 Tuesday was a busy day at the San Francisco offices at the Marie DeBartolo Complex in Santa Clara as the 49ers (3-4) have made some roster moves as follows, acquired defenseman Charles Omenihu, linebacker Tyrell Williams released, kicker Joey Slye wavied, and safety Kai Nacua has been moved to the practice squad.

#2 Dave, former San Francisco 49ers quarterback and legend Joe Montana said he would have taken the New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones over 49ers back up Trey Lance. Jones so far this season is piling up on the yards at 1,997, nine touchdowns, six interceptions, for Lance 354 yards, three touchdowns, and an interception this season. Where do you stand on Montana’s choice of quarterbacks?

#3 Dave after losing four straight and going into Chicago with a 33-22 win has 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo turned a corner, critics still are calling for Lance to be the starting quarterback.

San Francisco 49ers podcast with Joe Hawkes: Will 49ers shop Garoppolo or will they hang onto him as Lance isn’t ready?

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.

San Francisco 49ers week 5 podcast with Joe Hawkes: Lance to start today for injured Garoppolo; Murray throwing lights out for Cardinals

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?
