So, it was logical to assume that this defensive unit, which is mostly comprised of the same 11 players from previous year (when Xavier Rhodes returns) would ascend to "elite" status in 2016. If the first two games were any indication, that wasn't going to happen. Kalil's contract will expire after this season.

No longer is Gabbert the starter because he's earned it or because he gives the 49ers the best chance to win. Kaepernick's story has become much bigger than the game over the past month. However, for now, it seems the 49ers have no other choice but to stick with Gabbert since Kaepernick is still nowhere near playing condition. However, one former 49ers insider says there's more to it than that.
Their 29-27 win over the Giants could rank as one of their biggest in a few seasons. "It's a learning moment, and a tough time in the game", McAdoo said of Adams' penalty. Not necessarily.

And yet tonight Canada only looked more talented for maybe 20% of the time.which was enough to win, but wouldn't have been if they were facing a more skilled opponent.

So awkwardly, in fact, that Harper evidently injured his wrist and had to leave the game thereafter. Both benches cleared though not much really happened aside from some shoving and heated words.
