Why 2-0 49ers might be for real as 0-2 Steelers travel to face them
The Steelers started against the New England Patriots and the Seattle Seahawks with Tom Brady and Russell Wilson at quarterback.
The San Francisco 49ers started their season against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Cincinnati Bengals with Jameis Winston and Andy Dalton at quarterback.
Maybe it shouldn’t surprise us that San Francisco is 2-0 and the Steelers are 0-2.
Beyond those factors, though, the 49ers have been an early NFL surprise. Meanwhile, the Steelers have become a tragic disappointment.
You know the reasons for the Steelers’ bad start: injuries, inefficiency and ineptitude. Take your pick.
What are the reasons for San Francisco’s success? John Lund of KNBR radio in the Bay Area joins me to give us answers.
We talk about how much Richard Sherman has left in the tank. John gives us insight as to why George Kittle’s decreased numbers may be misleading. And he’ll guide us to whether we should believe the hype about quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo and defensive lineman Nick Bosa.
Oh, and Lund gives us a firsthand account of what it was like to watch the Antonio Brown circus in Oakland, too.
