Found November 06, 2011 on Niner Insider:
Not surprisingly, 49ers defensive tackle Ray McDonald will not be active for today's game against the Redskins after not practicing this week due to a hamstring injury. In a mild surprise, however, cornerback Shawntae Spencer is inactive. Spencer, who was listed as probable with a toe injury, is...

Win Over Redskins Gives 49ers Five Game Lead in NFC West

With a 19-11 victory over the Redskins on Sunday the 49ers won for the seventh time in eight games this season and extend a five game lead in the NFC West.  The offense did just enough in support of another dominate performance by the defense for the 49ers to hold on for the win.  While the win did come against an injured and struggling Redskins team, the 49ers made a loud statement...

Lucky Number 7: 49ers Look for Best Start Since 1997

  This week is a possible test on the road for the 49ers. I say “possible” because I’m not really sure what team the Redskins are going to field tomorrow.  It’s unclear who Mike Shanahan has faith in anymore.

The talk of two teams

Winning teams sound like the 49ers did after their 19-11 victory over the Redskins on Sunday. They are, for example, not consumed with matters beyond the scoreboard. Here's running back Frank Gore: "I'm just focused on winning." And quarterback Alex Smith: "I'm not worried about credit. I'm...

Redskins-49ers Open Thread

My simple wish today is for the Redskins to remind us of why we watch. Kickoff: 1 p.m. ETLine: Redskins +4.5Prediction: 49ers by 12Beer: Alright, San Fran is coming to town. I wish Carlos Rogers would use his new hands to pick up a couple Pliney the Elder’s from the Russian River Brewing Co. I have a feeling that by the second quarter I’m going to wish he’d found a couple...
