Midseason Review – San Francisco 49ers

Last season was a rather disappointing one for the San Francisco 49ers, as they failed to qualify for the postseason – the second year in a row that this had happened. A fourth placed finish in the NFC West was not good enough and marked an inauspicious start for new head coach Jim Tomsula – despite the signing of a number of new players, including Frank Gore and Mike Iupati – so is this season shaping up to be an improvement?

Well, the 49ers have a new coach for the third year in succession – in the form of Chip Kelly – but so far his reign has been little short of disastrous. The 49ers sit in fourth spot in the NFC West, but have suffered eleven straight defeats since their opening day win over the LA Rams. This has already effectively rendered the season over for the side, as they have no realistic chance of making the play-offs, and makes picking stand out players for the team pretty hard. It could probably be argued that quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been the stand-out for them during this wretched season – but fans are already dreaming about rebuilding the side using the 2017 draft. Should they retain their current lack of form they would have number two pick in this, but that is projecting ahead somewhat, although they are already in their worst run of form ever in their entire 70-year history.

When it comes to the individual matches, the sole highlight for 49ers fans this season was the 28-0 win over the Rams back in September; while the worst game was probably the hefty 16-45 defeat at the hands of the Buffalo Bills in mid-October. What makes this horrendous run of form all the more damning for the side is that they have no real injuries to contend with and the pressure is well and truly on coach Kelly. He arrived at the club with some question marks over his ability at NFL level, after he was sacked by the Philadelphia Eagles, and those doubts will only be intensified by the events of this season. All this means the 49ers are 100/1 rank outsiders for the Super Bowl, meaning even dedicated fans are unlikely to bite, but $5 Million Touchdown could be tempting alternative.

This is an NFL themed slot game available at many online casinos including BGO casino that features players, cheerleaders, footballs and referees whistles on its five reels, plus the backdrop of a football field. Like any other slot game the aim is to get a line of matching icons, but this one has a stunning $5 million maximum jackpot – as well as a great video bonus game where you need to score a touchdown to win a payout.
