A 49ers Podcast - Episode 4: Matt Maiocco

Matt Maiocco, NBC Sports Bay Area's 49ers Insider, joins A 49ers Podcast for an in-depth conversation on all things 49ers past, present and future.

Matt has covered the team for over 26 years and currently co-hosts 49ers Talk with Laura Britt.

He is also one of the leading figures behind Letters to 87, a documentary and book on Dwight Clark’s “the Catch.” The project highlighted letters and stories on the impact the play and Clark – who passed away from ALS in 2018 – had on the lives of people who witnessed the legendary play up-close, from afar or years after it occurred.

We get into:

  • What Letters to 87 means to Matt, how the project came to be and its legacy
  • Matt’s favorite letters, and some of mine as well
  • Larger than life and so much more: Dwight Clark’s impact on fans
  • Matt’s favorite games, and why some losses also standout
  • How Matt approaches reporting now vs. when he first walked into the 49ers locker room
  • It’s not all bad with Jimmy Garoppolo under center
  • An under the radar player or two for 2021
  • Why fans should feel confident in the long-term outlook of the team
  • The Jets? Why Robert Saleh and Mike LaFleur are the right guys for Gang Green
