49ers on Thursday: Defensive players’ meeting paid off; eliza michelle stays out

SANTA CLARA — The night before their best game of the season, the 49ers’ defense closed its meeting room doors to hear from their captains, before allowing their lowest points in the game to stun the Rams.

“I asked him to speak to the people who voted for him as captain,” defensive coordinator Demeco Ryans said on Thursday. “He was chosen captain for a reason: because the men in that locker room saw something different in those three men, and they wanted to follow his lead.”

So what did Jimmy Ward, Fred Warner and Eric Armstead do to their chests on Sunday night?

Well, Ward insisted to the defensive back that he needed to force a turnover, Armstead demanded a strong pass and Warner wanted the linebackers to make the most of their disappointing 31-17 loss to Arizona.

This was followed by a fiery 31-10 tie in the series, starting with Ward’s two interceptions.

“We insisted that the defense should win the game for us, and we went out there and did our best,” Ward said.

Ward is the first year captain. He is starting the 49ers’ free defense, a role known at home as “The Eraser” to stop mistakes in their tracks, although he does not wave the defense of early season pass-interference penalties. Little could have been done to stop it.

Ward is also the 49ers’ longest-serving player, dating back to his 2014 first-round selection by then-general manager Trent Balke, who is now in that spot with the Jacksonville Jaguars, the hosts of this upcoming Sunday.

Speaking, Ward expressed his gratitude to both Balke – “I don’t know what his options were with the 30th pick. But I appreciate the opportunity and I’m still here” – and postgame critic Balke. Anything got out of his chest (in which Ward said that Balke was wrong about his coverage assignment).

“I’ve been waiting eight years to get this off my chest,” Ward misquoted Balke about Ward’s coverage assignment in a game against the New York Giants.

The Ryans didn’t call their captains to fix the team chemistry, though.

“I’ve never felt disconnected from my defense,” Ryan said. “I wanted our captain to talk to the team, to change that, let the leaders who are the leaders talk to the team. We have a really nice locker room around.”

Linebacker Aziz Al-Shayer called the Cardinals’ game the worst of his career, and Sunday night’s players’ meeting about “bringing everyone together, believing in each other” like a tight-knit family Was.

Al-Shayer said, “When you realize that these are the people you spend so much time with over the years, you fight each other to turn things around and reach your full potential as much as you can.” Be as good as you can.”

Ward’s message this week: Don’t take the Jaguars (2-7) lightly, adding: “It’s had a lot of games and they’re a very physical team.”

Michelle Update

Running back, Elijah Mitchell’s surgically repaired finger on his right hand was wrapped with a bandage instead of protected by a cast. Mitchell wore a no-contact jersey as he stretched out to the side, but he did not practice, nor did teammate Jaimichael Hasty (ankle) back.

Mitchell is the 49ers’ leading rush with 469 yards. He missed the 49ers’ losses to Green Bay and Seattle due to a shoulder injury.

Jeff Wilson Jr. is in line to make his sixth career debut, which will be his first since the conclusion of last season. He made 10 carries (27 yards) early Monday after recovering from May meniscus surgery on his right knee.

Dancing Dooms Daniels

Defensive tackle Darrian Daniels’ season came to an end on Wednesday after he suffered an injury while dancing in a pregame warmup, apparently from an Achilles injury, according to a league source. (Team rules prohibit media from posting video of his injury.)

“Darian is a high-energy guy who has worked well for us,” Ryan said. “It’s unfortunate what happened to him. I know he’ll come back just fine.”

Daniels won scout-team honors last week for impersonating the Rams’ Aaron Donald in practice. Daniels has spent the entire season on the practice team, after playing four games last season as an untrained Nebraska rookie.

Daniels is replaced in the practice squad by defensive lineman Chris Slayton, a 6-foot-4, 307-pounder who was the New York Giants’ 2019 seventh-round draft pick.

shotgun switch

Offensive coordinator Mike McDaniel said coach Kyle Shanahan put pressure on staff to develop his shotgun package in 2019, and over the past few weeks, Jimmy Garoppolo has concluded with a high percentage of shotgun snaps.

But it’s not just because the Garoppolo looks more decisive and can quickly get thrown into tight windows. Also, “we’ve been playing with the young (running back) lately, due to various circumstances,” McDaniel said. “One thing about college football is a lot out of the shotgun. So, with rookies, you learn they’re more comfortable doing that now.”


– Wide receiver Deebo Samuel said after his two-touchdown performance on Monday: “As receivers, in our room, every time we touch the ball, we try to put it in a box.”

– Defensive linemen Mo Hurst (calf) and Dee Ford (back) are conditioning for a return. Hurst missed the last three games but was not placed on injured reserve for the second time this season. Ford must sit out at least one more game before being eligible to come out of IR.

– The 49ers Foundation, along with leading radio station KNBR, will host the fundraising auction from November 8 to November 30 at 7 p.m. The package includes experiences with Jerry Rice, Steve Young, John Lynch, and Joe Staley, and memorabilia from Joe. Montana, George Kittel, Deebo Samuel, Trey Lance and others. All can be found at 49ers.com/give.
