49ers vs. Chargers, Preseason 2014: Time for the quasi-dress rehearsal

The San Francisco 49ers kick off their third preseason game at 1 p.m. PT on Sunday, August 24. We've got all the nuts and bolts for the game, as well as an open thread for discussion.

We're back for Week 3 of the San Francisco 49ers preseason schedule. They face the San Diego Chargers in the FOX Game of the Week at 1 p.m. PT. This third preseason game is often viewed as a bit of a "dress rehearsal" for the regular season. Jim Harbaugh does not follow a lot of the playing time trends, so who knows what exactly we'll see in that regard.

The 49ers have to cut down to 75 players by Tuesday, so the second half of this game will actually be kind of a big deal. We'll see who shows enough to buy one more game with the team.

We'll have plenty to break down after the game, but for now, here's your first game thread, as well as a rundown of pertinent information related to the game.
