The San Francisco 49ers got a much needed 24-16 win over the Los Angeles Rams to get back to .500 at 3-3. The Niners needed the bounce back performance after back-to-back losses against the Philadelphia Eagles and Miami Dolphins.
Social media was not kind to the 49ers over the past two weeks, but that narrative changed after the victory over the Rams. Media members, fans and players took to Twitter to share their thoughts on San Francisco’s performance, including the legendary Joe Staley.
NBC’s Sunday Night Football crew definitely missed the mark, except for Tony. Dungy:

The 49ers’ social media team let them now after the game:
How can anyone not love Staley?

He also celebrated with a few drinks after the game was over:

And he didn’t forget his friend, Mike McGlinchey:
@mmcglinch68 played a Great first half. Great with a capital G— Joe Staley (@jstaley74) October 19, 2020
McGlinchey also had a message for his critics:
Still here.— Mike McGlinchey (@mmcglinch68) October 19, 2020
The other San Francisco players were also thrilled with the win:

Cornerback Jason Verrett played terrific and had a big interception in the end zone:

Rolling with Hasty over McKinnon to ice the game tells you all you need to know about how much confidence this team has in him.— KP (@KP_Show) October 19, 2020
The league is better with a healthy Jason Verrett pic.twitter.com/xSALFIwjEj— PFF (@PFF) October 19, 2020
Some stats and observations from media members:
This was the first game all season that the #49ers' offensive line did not give up a sack.— Akash Anavarathan (@akashanav) October 19, 2020
0 sacks and only 2 pressures allowed. That's a formula for success.
“The defense has been setting the tone for us. Today, it was our turn to set the tone for them." -Samuel.— KP (@KP_Show) October 19, 2020
Deebo said Jimmy told him not to go out of bounds on the final carry, and he said, "I never go out of bounds."
For all the Kyle Shanahan criticism throughout the week, some deserved, he sure shut everyone up tonight. The #49ers head coach called one hell of a game. So did defensive coordinator Robert Saleh.— Rob Lowder (@Rob_Lowder) October 19, 2020
San Francisco will be on the road for its next two games, starting with a matchup against the New England Patriots in Week 7.
