At 2-3, how did the 49ers get in this predicament?

That said, if thinks break right, a team could find itself healthier and in a significantly better position than it did the week before.

Is the 49ers Toughest Stretch of 2021 Behind Them?

The San Francisco 49ers were aware of their 2021 opponents back in January and the picture became even clearer in May when the NFL released its full 2021 slate of games. Coming off of a middling 2020 campaign, the San Francisco 49ers were set to face off against their regularly scheduled divisional foes twice, the AFC South, the NFC North, the Atlanta Falcons and Philadelphia Eagles, as both teams also finished last in their respective divisions, and then an added 17th interconference game against the AFC North's fourth-placed Cincinnati Bengals.

State of the 49ers Quarterback Position

The San Francisco 49ers enter the bye week with three consecutive losses and a ton of questions about where they are going this season. The 49ers are struggling on offense through their first 5 games and even though many have pointed at head coach Kyle Shanahan as being the root of the problem, the quarterback position does bear its share of responsibility. Although Trey Lance needs to see the field the rest of the season so he can improve, throwing him out there as the full time starter is a mistake.

Everything we know after 49ers fall apart vs. Seahawks

The 49ers’ couldn’t have started much better against their NFC West rival. Their defense got a three-and-out. Their offense followed with a touchdown, and then their defense forced another three-and-out. Things never got better for San Francisco despite a strong defensive effort in the first half. Here’s what we know...
NFL

Probably Time to Panic

The 49ers sit at 2-3 during their Week 6 bye. The offense is in complete disarray. The run game, which used to be a strength of the Kyle Shanahan system, is disjointed and inconsistent at best. Entire chapters of the playbook had to be removed with the loss of Raheem Mostert in the first game of the season. The entire right side of the offensive line is, in effect, a turnstile to this point. Promising wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk has pulled a vanishing act the likes of David Copperfield with the Statue of Liberty. George Kittle is injured... again.
