With a 1-5 record, the 49ers were flexed to a mid-day game against the undefeated Rams. Still, Sunday will be an emotional day with the unveiling of statues for "The Catch."
Can C.J. Beathard keep pace with Bay Area native Jared Goff? Will the 49ers' three running backs combine for as many yards as Rams running back Todd Gurley? We're about to find out.

That's not exactly how Richard Sherman saw it.
The 49ers cornerback contradicted NFL Media's Ian Rapoport when he reported on Friday morning that the NFL and the league's Players' Association were nearly done with negotiations for the 2020 NFL season amid the coronavirus pandemic.

"Huge outstanding issues still are unresolved," Sherman tweeted in response to Rapoport's report. "We haven't agreed to anything in their proposal and literally just sent them a response. But all will be revealed."
Sherman has been one of the more outspoken players for the 49ers when it came to institutional response to the pandemic. He also questioned the motives of California Gov. Gavin Newsom after he reversed course several months back on the return of sports in the state.

We've seen a litany of players and team officials from sports around the country who have tested positive for the virus in recent weeks, and concerns continue to be raised about whether the NFL indeed will be able to proceed with fans in attendance at games along with a standard league schedule, which would require teams to travel all over the U.S. over the fall months when a potential second wave of coronavirus could take hold.
It remains to be seen how the league will come to an agreement with its players, as NFL camps are scheduled to open next month.
Deebo Samuel likes the idea of another potential Super Bowl run for the 49ers.
All-Pro New York Jets safety Jamal Adams has requested a trade from the Big Apple, and the 49ers have been one of his most-rumored potential destinations. Samuel took to his Instagram story on Thursday night to send a subtle message of encouragement to the 24-year-old safety.

Both the 49ers and Seattle Seahawks have been reported to be in negotiations with the Jets regarding Adams, who has been an All-Pro in each of the past two seasons.
There are plenty of potential hurdles for the 49ers if they wanted to complete a potential trade for Adams. He has two years remaining on his rookie deal in New York and holds very little leverage outside of opting not to report to training camp and holding out. The Jets rightfully are asking for a high price, likely needing at least one first-round pick to even have a seat at the table in negotiations. All of that neglects to mention that Adams wants to be paid like the NFL's best safety (which he has a pretty good argument for being), but the 49ers' front office still has to pay George Kittle what is expected to be well above the current tight end market value.
Nevertheless, you can't blame Deebo for trying to bring as much talent to the 49ers as possible.
