“Samuel caught five passes for 42 yards in San Francisco’s 44-23 loss to Kansas City, the 49ers’ first game following the club’s acquisition of running back Christian McCaffrey.

“Van Jefferson is making his season debut against the 49ers, giving the Rams offense a much-needed spark. Ben Skowronek has done a decent job as the No. 3 receiver, but Jefferson should immediately unseat him as the third option alongside Cooper Kupp and Allen Robinson.”

“As the saying goes: Familiarity breeds contempt. Right now, the fans and players of the San Francisco 49er have been jawing quite a bit in the face of the LA Rams, particularly surprising for a team that is sitting on a record of 3-4. But the 49ers fans and players are confident about this week’s matchup with the LA Rams and are chattering like nervous and hungry squirrels that just found a cache of nuts.”
