Adrian Peterson carries several 49ers defenders for first down

Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson hadn’t played in a regular season game in just over one year heading into Monday night’s game against the 49ers, so it’s safe to say the 2012 MVP was excited to get back on the field. Most analysts and fans alike assumed the Vikings would look to get Peterson involved early and often, except they didn’t. He carried the ball...

Aaron Lynch will be the San Francisco 49ers’ next Pro Bowl linebacker

If there’s one positive side affect of all the San Francisco 49ers’ losses at linebacker this offseason, it’s that we’ll get to see a whole lot more from Aaron Lynch soon.

San Francisco 49ers LB Aaron Lynch Fires Shots at Seattle Seahawks on Instagram

As a linebacker it is Aaron Lynch's job to put pressure on people. With the losses the 49ers suffered at the position this off-season there is a good chance that the team is going to look to Lynch to contribute a little more this coming season.

WATCH: San Francisco 49ers LB Aaron Lynch Tosses Russell Wilson Like a Bad Habit

Overall there was not much for fans of the San Francisco 49ers to be thankful for Thursday night. Once again the offense floundered and did little to help the defense out. It was the kind of performance that makes you wonder if the front office wishes it had held off on signing Colin Kaepernick to the deal they did.There is one thing they should be thankful for though--former South...

Aaron Lynch destroys Robert Griffin III, keeps ball as souvenir (video)

It wasn’t a banner day for Washington Redskins QB Robert Griffin III, as the San Francisco 49ers defense gave him fits. RGIII completed only 11 of 19 passes for 106 yards. He was a complete non-factor throughout the game. The 49ers pass rush, however, was a force to be reckoned with. They sacked RGIII five times. And the Redskins QB will certainly be feeling the hit that rookie...
