Way back in 2009, I stumbled across the most amazingly creepy video homage to one-time Tennessee Titans kicker Joe Nedney. He was a member of the San Francisco 49ers when the video was made, but the fan wanted to talk about his love for Nedney’s time with the Titans. We can now add Brian Hoyer to the mix of randomly funny but creepy videos. Back in 2014, someone put together The Ballad of Brian Hoyer (h/t 49ers sub-Reddit). It’s interesting to note that this was published in …

49ers OTA notes: Bad day for Bowman, Hyde and Hoyer

, , ,

… hole to run through. On one stretch play, he missed a cutback lane, tried to bounce around the outside even though the linebacker had set the edge and lost three yards. The Niners should trade him to a team that runs the zone read. 3. QB Brian Hoyer. Hoyer played well last week, but today he was out of sync with the offense all practice. Maybe he was rusty from the three-day weekend. I don’t know. He missed high, he missed low. He threw to receivers who weren’t there. The ball even squirted …

Breaking down the 90 players on the 49ers offseason roster in 90 posts (over 90 or so days). We move on to quarterback Brian Hoyer. Each year, we run a series of post called “90-in-90” here at Niners Nation.

Golden Nuggets: Brian Hoyer and The QBs

… were able to add 2 in Brian Hoyer and Matt Barkley. The latest free agent to visit was OL Bryon Bell, who missed all of last season after dislocating his ankle. The main storyline for the last week had been the possible reunion of Kyle Shanahan and QB Kirk Cousins. Over the weekend, Kirk signed his franchise tag with Washington. The 49ers can still trade for him, but the most likely scenario is that Kirk stays with Washington for the season and he walks in the offseason. The 49ers are still …
