Brian Hoyer explains random fumble, 49ers penalties, offensive struggles

, , , ,

The 49ers quarterback met with the media after the Broncos game. Watch video here. Saturday brought us an ugly evening of football from the San Francisco 49ers, with the first team offense looking particularly rough.

The worst play for Brian Hoyer was his fumble when he was trying to complete a pass to wide receiver Jeremy Kerley. He went to fire …

1 SANTA CLARA This is what stood out to me during the 49ers-Broncos joint practice Thursday morning. Disclaimer: Yesterday I focused on the 49ers offense, so today I focused on their defense. It was impossible to focus on both at the same time because they were playing on different fields. THE ALARMING 1. LB Reuben Foster. The 49ers held Foster out of 11-on-11 team drills because he sprained the AC joint in his surgically-repaired right shoulder yesterday during practice. A team spokesman said …

49ers 27, Chiefs 17: Grades

,

1 Here are the grades for the 49ers’ 27-17 preseason win over the Chiefs. QUARTERBACKS: B. Brian Hoyer was on the field for just six snaps, so it’s hard to judge him. He completed only one-of-four pass attempts, but he did make a nice throw to Jeremy Kerley for a 15-yard gain on third-and-12 which didn’t count because the Niners committed an illegal formation penalty. Matt Barkley made a few nice throws while rolling out, including an eight-yard touchdown pass to Aldrick Robinson while …
