On this week’s episode of the Better Rivals podcast, we talk top takeaways from the most important preseason game of the year before turning our attention forward to the 2019 regular season. What did we learn from the starters’ extended action against the Chiefs? How confident are we that Jimmy Garoppolo can lead the the 49ers to a top five offense? And how good does the defense need to be for this team to reach the playoffs? All that, plus we pour one out for Malcolm Smith, hand out some season superlatives, and make our record predictions.
