Morning Tailgate: April 18

Posted by Taylor Price on April 18, 2012 – 9:43 AM

One day removed from the announcement of the 2012 regular season schedule, there’s plenty of schedule analysis to discuss. With the 49ers playing in five primetime games this upcoming season, the most the franchise’s played in since 1999, several of San Francisco’s marquee matchups were profiled by national football writers.

The 49ers schedule is littered with intriguing storylines as the team have to face the difficult challenge of having a division champion’s schedule. At home, there are three primetime games that’ll see the 49ers face the Detroit Lions in a Week 2 Sunday Night Football matchup, as well as the Seattle Seahawks in a Week 7 Thursday Night Football matchup and the Chicago Bears in a Week 11 Monday Night Football matchup. On the road, the 49ers will see the Arizona Cardinals Week 8 on Monday Night Football and the New England Patriots in a Week 15 Sunday Night Football clash.

More on the top 49ers regular season games and the third installment of CEO Jed York’s interview with The San Jose Mercury News can be found after the jump.

In the third installment of his interview with Mike Rosenberg of The Mercury News, the 49ers CEO discussed what fans can expect with the team’s new stadium in Santa Clara. With the team set to break ground at the stadium site on Thursday, York said he felt gratitude for all the hard work that’s gone into the project.

ESPN.com senior NFL analyst John Clayton shares his top 10 regular season matchups of 2012. Clayton has the 49ers matchups against the Green Bay Packers (Week 1), Detroit Lions (Week 2) and New Orleans Saints (Week 12).

Chris Burke of SI.com ranks the best games week-by-week. Burke has the 49ers matchups against the Lions (Week 2), New York Giants (Week 6) and New England Patriots (Week 15) as the best games of those particular weeks.

Ben Stockwell of ProFootballFocus.com examined the best individual matchups set to take place in the 2012 regular season and ranks 49ers cornerback Carlos Rogers facing New England Patriots slot receiver Wes Welker as the most intriguing 49ers matchup to watch.

Two 49ers beat writers named Matt offer their takes on the 2012 schedule. Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com takes a game-by-game look at the schedule, as does Matt Barrows of The Sacramento Bee.

Patrick Willis has been eliminated from the 2013 EA Madden video game cover tournament. Willis was defeated in the semifinals by Carolina Panthers quarterback Cam Newton.

TWEET ABOUT IT

York gave the San Jose Sharks a shout-out on Twitter, as well as recognized a San Jose Mercury News column that profiled the friendship between Sharks general manager Doug Wilson and his 49ers counterpart, Trent Baalke.

    I dont think that the 5 time pro bowl and one of the premire linebackers in the NFL is really worried about it , yes that would have great for him all the work he has done for the niners , i ll bet he rather have that ring instead …….

    The 49ers don’t play for magazine, or video game covers, let losers like the jets, and cowgirls have that crap. Patrick W. knows that he was within an inch of the real prize, and that’s what he’s after.

    Man did you guys see the 1st two games of our season? We start off at Green Bay then Detroit visits us for Harbaugh vs Schwart II. Man what a way to start off the season! If we get out of those 2-0, we will be in pretty good shape the rest of the way.

    just a thought niners should try to trade up with browns and get 4th pick take blackmon..rams r going to take him at 6th..need to get a stud receiver..hill is a work in progress and they might not get him at 30th..that leaves them with a moss who is 35.. he might have one year left we all hope and manningham who is lets face it 2nd receiver and gets hurt alot..crabtree he needs to step it up this year..to many drops and alot of games he is a non factor..the way the league is going right now you need a solid core of receivers…

  12. By rjdniner on Apr 19, 2012 | Reply

    kram ….. it would be hard for team that had 13-3 record to get a trade up like that , ya good point , with the additions we got .. crabtree will step it up we ll see whats happen on draft day niners

    NOW WE ARE TALKING FOOTBALL . HIILL IS NOT RIGHT 4 US / ALSHON JEFREY IS A BABY T. O . JUST NEEDS TO LEARN SYSTEM IF HE COULD DO AS WELL AS HE DID WITH A COMPLEX SYSTEM W/SPURRIER HE WILL COME ALONG FAST. IF YALL REMEMBER WE HAVE AN EXTRA PICK THIS YEAR FROM NEW ENGLAND IN THE 3RD ROUND. IF NOT A RECEIVER WE WILL TRADE OUT AND PICK UP A SECOND OR THIRD PROBABLY FROM WASHINGTON OR DENVER.YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST.

  15. By dave g. on Apr 19, 2012 | Reply

    DYENNY…not sure where you getting we have an extra pick from New England. We have 7 picks (only one in each round of 7) and they are all at the number 30 spot. Do you know something we don’t know? An extra 3rd round pick woul dbe nice BUT I am not sure thats accurate.

  16. By rjdniner on Apr 19, 2012 | Reply

    dyenny……. Everybody been talking about the other recivers….. Jeffery as sorted been put on the back burner, IF we get him , and i hop we do ( look out ) Spurrier wish he would have stayed , Gamcocks got a good qb this year…….

  17. By rjdniner on Apr 19, 2012 | Reply

    Hey this is what happens when you have a winning season .. ya hoping we pick 32nd next year ..

  18. By NINERSS ALL DAYYY on Apr 19, 2012 | Reply

    With Moss healthy and just being somewhat of a threat that has value in itself…Manningham will be the number 2 which is certainly a confidence boost from being 3 in NY but he is still not going to see the best corner…crab will be three which is perfect for him cause now hes getting the 3rd or 4th best cover man cause you know VD will generate lots of attantion…no linebacker can cover him he will have a great year!!! Alshon is a nice 2-3rd round pick.
