No worries, at least for me. I'm an American but I love both types of football (i.e. soccer and American football). Regarding the former: after finishing dead last in MLS last season and opening this season winless in the first month while adjusting to new coach Matías Almeyda's system, my San Jose Earthquakes have since went on a tear and have (as of this posting) moved up to fourth place in the MLS Western Conference standings and fifth place overall in the league.Chelmsford City here.
Well, we won 7-0 against AFC Sudbury on the 6th July, and have won other matches 7-0 and 10-0 as well in the last month and a bit. First League match is this Saturday against Hampton & Richmond Borough, hopefully strong form will carry through. Frankly we've got goal-scorers from every direction, so maybe headed for promotion soon, not that we'll ever be Premier League.
Wait... I don't think you guys are talking about football here.
But this thread is for American football, or more specifically for the NFL (as opposed to college football), so the rest of this post will be about that.
I'm cautiously optimistic about the San Francisco 49ers this season. The defense should continue to be good, with the defensive line in particular having been bolstered with Dee Ford and first-round draft pick Nick Bosa pairing with DeForest Buckner for what would seem to be a formidable pass rush.
Meanwhile, the offense should be improved from last season with QB Jimmy Garappolo returning from an early-season injury last season, with RB Jerrick McKinnon finally healthy again after suffering the same injury as Garappolo last year but even before the preseason began , as well as a few other additions to RB and elsewhere, some of whom head coach Kyle Shanahan is familiar with from his assistant coaching days in Washington and Atlanta.
And of course there's still TE George Kittle.
Probably the biggest question mark for the 49ers is the wide receiver corps, no doubt leading the team to have picked two WR's in the draft. Nonetheless, it'll be interesting to see how that corps does with a full season (God willing) of Garappolo at the helm.
