on the season with a Week 2 victory over the Detroit Lions. They sit one game back of the Los Angeles Rams http://www.sanfrancisco49ersteamonline.com/deforest-buckner-jersey , XXX with the Seattle Seahawks, and one game up on the Arizona Cardinals.We’re back with Week 3 NFL power rankings, but I wanted to use them for a different type oflook this week. You can see my full power rankings at the bottom of the page, but first, I thought two games in is as good a time as any to assess the rest of the 49ers opponents. There are still plenty of questions to be answered, but two games gives us a good starting point for re-assessing the team’s strength of schedule.Week 3: @ Kansas City Chiefs — Football Outsiders ranks the Chiefs No. 1 in offense and special teams and No. 32 in defense. Patrick Mahomes has been a revelation, and this could be quite the shootout on Sunday.Week 4: @ Los Angeles Chargers — A loss to the Chiefs and a win over the Bills don’t tell us much. The offense is clearly solid, but the defense remains a problem.Week 5/8: Arizona Cardinals — They are not good. Washington came in and thumped them, and then the Rams crushed them in LA. Arizona won’t go winless, but they’re down there with the Bills among the worst teams in the league.Week 6: @ Green Bay Packers — Aaron Rodgers is dealing with knee issues, but he played on Sunday, and almost got the win against a tough Vikings defense. Barring an injury, the Packers are good, as most of us expected.Week 7/16: Los Angeles Rams — They lead the league in point differential, but they also have played two bad teams in Oakland and Arizona. They’re going to be very good this season Womens Alfred Morris Jersey , but where they are among the Super Bowl competitors remains to be seen.Week 9: vs. Oakland Raiders — The Raiders hung close with the Rams early in Week 1, but fell apart late. They then followed that up with a loss in which they blew two separate 12-point leads. The biggest problem for them seems to be the lack of a pass rush — surprise, surprise after unloading Khalil Mack. They are struggling big time in second half adjustments.Week 10: vs. New York Giants — They have lost their first two games by a combined 12 points, but their offense is going to cost them any chance at being remotely competitive for a playoff berth. Eli Manning is trying to play the quarterback position with a fork sticking out, and I don’t see this getting better anytime soon.Week 12: @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers — Ryan Fitzmagic is on fire! He has eight touchdowns through the first two weeks, and the Bucs have a road win over the New Orleans Saints and a home win over the defending champion Philadelphia Eagles. There is no way this holds up, but it’s impressive for the time being. Now we wait and see what happens when Jameis Winston returns from his suspension.Week 13/15: Seattle Seahawks — The Seahawks are sitting at 0-2, and nothing seems to be going well for them. They hung close with the Bears, but that seemed more to do with the Bears nearly blowing the game than Seattle really doing much to win it. Seattle is in trouble.Week 14: vs. Denver Broncos — They’re on the short list of 2-0 teams, but it’s too early to be clear on where they stand. They won at home against Seattle and Oakland, but neither win is looking all that great at this point. Their divisional games against the Chiefs and Chargers will tell us more.Week 16: vs. Chicago Bears — The Bears defense is something fierce. On the other side of things, the Bears offense is shaky at best. Mitchell Trubisky can make some great plays, but he regularly makes bad throws that cost the team. The Bears beat the Seahawks on Monday Night Football 24-17, but should have won by at least two or three scores.Here are my latest power rankings. Last week, I simply went with a ranking of teams based on point differential Womens Marquise Goodwin Jersey , thus some of the funky last week rankings. This week I went with a more subjective look at things.Week 3 NFL power rankingsRankTeamLWRankTeamLW4 things we learned in the 49ers loss to the Cardinals (and 1 thing I still think about) I’d love to be in the film study session with the San Francisco 49ers after the Arizona Cardinals mess. Yes, I’m calling it a mess, not a game, or a loss. Just anb unnecessary mess. Unacceptable is one of the many words I could use to describe what was shown on Sunday. Pathetic could be another one. The 49ers are hurt by injuries, and are still a young team, but they are also in the second year of their rebuild. Teams like the Cardinals should be beat. In San Francisco no less. There’s way too much we’ve learned watching this blunder, so this is more like I’ve put it all in a hat and drew three things we learned. C.J. Beathard is one of the unluckiest quarterbacks to play the gameThe 49ers backup quarterback has his own share of blame for how things ended on Sunday, but we can’t pile it all on him. Beathard isn’t taking the team to a Super Bowl, or the playoffs, or maybe even another win if he’s going to keep getting stripped like that. He at least can put together a drive or two, nothing more evident than the opening drive on Sunday. Marching down the field, punching it in, all one had to think was this was a sign of a great game by the 49ers. Then his second drive he threw a ball to Pierre Gar莽on that was batted away. By Pierre Gar莽on. Of course it results in an interception and things get worse from there. The NFL is a passing league. You aren’t going to go well if you can’t pass. To Beathard’s credit he’s thrown some decent passes, if only his pass-catchers could catch it. This isn’t cleaning Beathard of any blame. He had some very strange throws and held the ball far too long. The 49ers defensive performance is a mirage to a bad Cardinals offenseThe 49ers may be preaching violence. But it’s probably that cartoon violence you see on the crummy cartoons that came on weekday mornings just to get you to go to school.The 49ers defense had minor improvements against a putrid offense. Don’t let the Cardinals fool you—that is not a good offense at the moment. Just because the Cardinals couldn’t convert 3rd downs is more on them and less on the 49ers defense. Besides the opening play of the Cardinals which led to a monster touchdown, this game rests more on the lack of execution on the 49ers offense than anything they did on defense. Raheem Mostert is a much better gunner than a runner Mostert was one of the contestants playing “Cough it to the Cardinals” flipping a ball to the defense which led to the second Cardinals touchdown of the day. The fumble itself was a result of Matt Breida being injured. Had Breida been not been getting checked out for his ankle injury www.the49ersfootballauthentic.com , he may have been the one in the game. Mostert had a fumble in the preseason and also fumbled on one of his few carries in 2017. It all means one thing: Mostert can’t be trusted with the ball. He’s a much better gunner than a runner on special teams. His value on special teams cannot be overstated. As a piece on offense? The 49ers need a new third running back. Mostert isn’t it. C.J. Beathard is a career backup, if thatI said that Beathard was the best chance for the team to run Kyle Shanahan’s offense. I still stand by that statement, but he also isn’t going to give the 49ers the best chance to win. Twice Beathard had the ball stripped from his hands and both times they are on him for holding the ball too long and not A) taking off or B) throwing it away. That’s two of the five turnovers. I have nothing more to say on this than you aren’t going to win a game with five turnovers. Especially when half your team is on IR. And we haven’t even gotten to the interceptions yet. One was not on him. The other was just bad. At least he isn’t Nathan Peterman, but Beathard is not going to go Nick Foles and help emerge as a threatening quarterback. Not with performances like these. 49ers can’t catchWe’ll get more into this when the numbers get compiled and released, but the pass catchers had themselves a day, didn’t they? Goal line passes, two-point conversions, wide-open-between-the-numbers, you name it, the 49ers couldn’t catch it. I think catching a cold is easier than what they were trying to do. Which makes one wonder. They can’t wrap up, they can’t catch. What are the 49ers practicing? Besides Kyle Shanahan’s hard offense. Some of these catches, like Cole Wick’s dropped touchdown catch, were so obvious and easy the foghorn (that goes off with every 49ers TD at home) went off for a brief moment until everyone realized it was a drop. Week 1, it’s sloppy, Week 5 San Francisco 49ers T-Shirt , it’s disturbing. No other way to put it. And here’s what I’m thinking about Those Chevy commercials during the game need to goI’m getting this off my chest. Chevrolet has a series of commercials highlighting how they are finalists or winners with J.D. Power (the absolute indicator it’s a Chevy commercial, when J.D. Power is name-dropped). It begins with a single car mentioned for an award, and ends. Then another commercial follows right after with more cars, and ends. Then there’s a third one with more cars and an end, teasing the end of what should be another lame car commercial only to extend it by, yep, another car commercial. The guy announcing everything says with this smug grin, “Well, third time’s a charm.” I hope I can speak for most everyone when I say nobody likes commercials at face value. They are a necessary evil to a football game unless it’s the Super Bowl, beer, or a strutting pony. Car commercials are oftentimes the absolute worst. Teasing me the end of a commercial twice and then giving me some smug “not my fault” look on the third does the opposite of making me a customer.Chevrolet trolled me hard during with this ‘series’ of commercials. It didn’t help that the 49ers were losing when they hit.
