🏈 Super Bowl LVIII Countdown: 5 Days

Greetings from downtown Las Vegas!

Today I immersed myself in the electric atmosphere of Super Bowl week and stopped by the NFL's Radio Row. There, I had the opportunity to interview NFL media, soaking in the anticipation for the big game. One highlight was catching up with the dynamic duo of the 49ers Spanish radio team, Jesús Zárate and Carlos Yustis. We talked all about Super Bowl week in Las Vegas, shared laughs over the funniest moments in the Spanish radio broadcast booth and discussed the 49ers journey to Super Bowl LVIII.

Here's what Zárate and Yustis had to say:

What did you guys think of Opening Night?

Zárate: It was pretty amazing because we got the chance to ask them different questions. For example, "Who on the team has the best poker face," so it was really fun stuff. We usually ask them stuff about the game strategy, but this time, we kept it more fun.

Yustis: Especially when you think about how the Super Bowl week is, right? There has to be that balance between having fun and taking care of business. We're gonna stand on business, but we also need to have fun. And it allows the players to also kind of bask in the fact that they're in the Super Bowl. This is not something that they do every day. They get to see all the colors, everything out, it's super fun.

What are some of the funniest moments you've had in the booth throughout the season?

Zárate: We definitely have chemistry, but sometimes we've been missing high fives. In the Divisional Round against Green Bay, we were so excited screaming touchdown and missed each other. So that definitely was one of the funniest moments.

Yustis: I also think one of the greatest things of being together is – I think our personalities kind of blend well when we do these things... You can see in those videos, I'm shaking my hands. Because whenever he starts getting stressed, he gets me stressed. One time, (Zárate) was really nervous, it was at halftime of the last game. You could see his face and little by little you see the color go away. But then the color start coming back to his cheeks so I'm like, okay, I'm reviving. I just thought it was hilarious.

At what point during the season did you notice that this is a championship-level team?

Zárate: After that Bye week, when we played the Jaguars, I think you could start to see that they have all the tools to be a championship team. You have a great running back in Christian McCaffrey and obviously all the weapons on offense and defense. I think that was a turning point after the Bye week.

Yustis: To me, that turning point was the Eagles game, because of what happened last season. And the way it happened, the team got to go back to Philadelphia and make a statement. At that point, the Eagles were the hottest team in the NFC. They only had one loss under their belt and they were supposed to be the powerhouse against the powerhouse. And we came out on top and I think that's where you really could see that the team could go all the way.

➡️ Player Updates

Tuesday was a rest day for the team, but held the 49ers held a press conference before taking the practice field later this week.

Linebacker Dre Greenlaw, safety Tashaun Gipson Sr. and wide receiver Jauan Jennings talked to the media and shared their thoughts on the team's Super Bowl preparations. They discussed what it's like playing under the leadership of head coach Kyle Shanahan and shared anecdotes about the camaraderie in the 49ers locker room.

Coach Shanahan himself previewed the team's Super Bowl LVIII preparations, spotlighting the growth of tight end George Kittle and linebacker Fred Warner as leaders within the squad.

We're going through all the stuff throughout the week where we understand what we're trying to do and the plays that we're running and all that stuff,

"I think it's huge and Kyle (Shanahan)'s harped on it. We want to handle everything before we get on this plane this week as if we were playing this week. It's been good and it's been efficient."

🏈 Super Bowl LVIII Countdown: 9 Days

All eyes are set on Vegas.

Following the team's NFC Championship victory, San Francisco's coaching staff got to game planning for the Kansas City Chiefs. Yesterday, the team held their first practice of Super Bowl prep, installing the game plan in rainy Santa Clara. Tight end George Kittle, who suffered a toe injury against the Detroit Lions, was a non participant in Thursday's workout. Head coach Kyle Shanahan described the injury as "just a toe" and noted earlier in the week that Kittle was expected to be day-to-day for this week.

The founder and CEO of Fangirl Sports Network Tracy Sandler joined the "1st & 10" podcast to recap the 49ers first day back at practice, share what she's learned from 49ers CEO Jed York, Shanahan and the 49ers defense ahead of Super Bowl LVIII, discuss the 49ers vs. Chiefs Super Bowl LIV rematch and answer questions directly from the Faithful.

Defensive lineman Nick Bosa and linebacker Fred Warner are two of the 11 players who've carried over from the 2019 squad that played in Super Bowl LIV. On Thursday, the leaders of San Francisco's defense discussed how far they've come since their first Super Bowl appearance, shared how they're preparing for round two of the big game against the Kansas City Chiefs and reviewed the latest performances from the 49ers defense.

"You definitely learn a lot going through a long season in 2019," Bosa said. "You don't understand it as much as a rookie how hard it is to get there, but just how hard you have to play and how locked in you have to be for the entire four quarters if you want to win. I've learned that, and I'm just going to relay to the guys that there has to be a different level of effort, intensity, unselfishness that you have to get there for every single snap that you're in there."

"I look back at that moment, and I can truly say I was in the moment," Warner added. "I took it really seriously even though I was young... We've been so close, and we finally have another opportunity, and you have to make the most of it because you never know if you'll have another opportunity. You have to sell out for three hours and give it your best."
