The San Francisco 49ers will be looking for a third consecutive victory on Monday night as they face the St. Louis Rams who are looking to avoid a third straight loss.
However, the visitors will have to deal with further speculation and rumours regarding coach Jim Harbaugh, with reports surfacing last week that the players had lost trust and questions were asked over whether or not he would be back next season.
Nevertheless, CEO Jed York took to Twitter prior to last week’s win over the Kansas City Chiefs to insist that “Jim is my coach” and that the entire franchise was focused on winning a Super Bowl.
The pair met on Monday to discuss the direction of the franchise and with several players publicly backing their coach, it is expected that the 49ers will be fully focused on the task in hand on Monday.
The 49ers (3-2) have committed just one turnover in three games as they recover from losses to the Arizona Cardinals and Chicago Bears, with Frank Gore picked out as a key individual in this match-up.
San Francisco are third in the NFL with 145.0 rushing yards per game with Gore fifth after gaining 226 of his 365 yards in the last two contests. Meanwhile, the Rams enter the game tied 29th with 152.5 rushing yards allowed per contest, and so that will be an area that the visitors will look to exploit.
Nevertheless, St. Louis have impressed in their last two outings but have ultimately come up short. Quarterback Austin Davis believes that they are a ” good football team” and insists that they are close to turning things around, and they will look to do so starting against the Niners.
