Yes, the 49ers have to adjust their schedule this week.
But their track record shows that they do it as well as anyone.
Via Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com, the 49ers have been tweaking their normal routine all week to prepare for Sunday’s 1 p.m. ET kickoff against the Panthers, which will feel like a 10 a.m. start for them.
The 49ers bumped Thursday’s practice ahead 30 minutes, but will go two hours earlier than normal today before boarding their charter flight to Charlotte this afternoon..
The time difference is normally a problem for West Coast teams, but it hasn’t been lately for the 49ers.
Since coach Jim Harbaugh took over, they’re 5-0 in 1 p.m. ET starts.
