Joe Staley Gets Valuable Test vs. Terrell Suggs

*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 Joe Staley squaring off with Ravens All-Pro pass rusher Terrell Suggs. 

"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.

San Francisco's left tackle has only played for the team that drafted him in 2007, and he's had many great moments over the years.


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.

27: Kicker Phil Dawson connected on 27 straight field goal attempts in 2013 to set a franchise record.

15: The 49ers won a team-record 15 games in a row from Nov. 27, 1989-Nov. 18, 1990.

6: Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young threw at least one touchdown pass in 18 straight games from Oct. 9, 1994-Nov. 26, 1995.

5: Running back Frank Gore tallied five consecutive 100-yard rushing games in 2011 for the first time in 49ers history.

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.

2: And of course, the 49ers won back-to-back Super Bowls in 1988 and '89.
