If you've got a case of the Mondays, just remember 49ers football returns home on Sunday. Niners Daily kicks off this week with a look at a battle in the trenches and some impressive streaks.
Staley vs. Suggs
One of the obvious perks of practicing alongside another team during training camp is seeing how well your players stack up against the stars of the opponent.
During the team's extended stay in Maryland, 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman had a front row seat to witness and dissect tackle
“Oh yeah, I see every play. And, that’s a really good matchup,” Roman said. “Two very good players. Joe’s doing a good job. Suggs obviously gives him a lot of things to worry about. His style is a unique style… So just for Joe, it’s a great challenge every day to sharpen his blade.”
Coming off his third consecutive Pro Bowl year, Staley signed a two-year contract extension through the 2019 season last month.
Golfer Rory McIlroy won his third consecutive tournament and second consecutive Major title by taking home the PGA Championship on Sunday. The 49ers are no strangers to racking up impressive streaks, either. Here's a look at a few notable runs.
225: Jerry Rice caught a pass in an NFL-record 225 consecutive games from 1985 to 2000. The 49ers legend later extended the stretch to 274 with the Oakland Raiders.
15: The 49ers won a team-record 15 games in a row from Nov. 27, 1989-Nov. 18, 1990.

5: Running back
4: Gore recorded four 1,000-yard seasons in a row from 2006-09. He has a chance to tie his own record this year.
