Following a bitter-sweet week 2 win over the Jets, 49ers fans were hesitant to celebrate, because although the had blown out the Jets without the likes of George Kittle and Richard Sherman, an abundance of key injuries took place at met life that week. The 49ers were already missing key players Geroge Kittle, Richard Sherman, and Deebo Samuel, but Sunday added some insult to injury with Jimmy Garoppolo, Nick Bosa, Raheem Mostert, Tevin Coleman, and Soloman Thomas all sustaining injuries. Many football fans think this means the 49ers won’t make the playoffs, or will at least be a 1st round exit, but I’m here to tell you this isn’t the case.
Although the next few weeks the 49ers will start more second-stringers then I’m sure they’re comfortable with, they also play the easiest portion of there schedule. They play the Giants (without Saquon Barkley and Sterling Shepard) and the beat-up Eagles. By then they should have Kittle, Sherman, Samuel, Mostert, Ford, and Garoppolo back. The loss of Bosa for the season is an irreplaceable one for sure, but the 49ers depth and coaching should be able to help but a bandage on the cut.
The 49ers crew also has something not many other teams can say they have: elite coaching and a hunger to get back in the Superbowl. Many also don’t account for the crazy amount of talent on this roster. Even with these injuries they still have Fred Warner, Kwon Alexander, Arik Armstead, Jimmie Ward, Trent Williams and a healthy Jordan Reed on the field. There is still quite enough talent to get the job done. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again: the 49ers are not done yet!
