As he does weekly, San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith joined Murph & Mac on KNBR 680 today to talk about the team and their efforts to get back into the win column.

"I'm not even going to like to you man," Smith said. "It's – you wouldn't even know that in terms of our record, like, Gabbert's still at it working hard, committed to winning. You know what I mean? There's nothing worse than continuing to lose. Everyone's doing their part to make sure that we're handling our business and we can try to finish this thing out strong and see what happens."

"I'm glad you guys don't talk to me within the first 24 hours of a loss," Smith later said. During the following days, the team gets perspective and gets back to focusing on the next opponent. Smith's goal is to "get back at it" and get a win against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, the 49ers' next opponent prior to the team's bye week.

Smith had three catches for 76 yards and a touchdown in the 49ers' loss to the Buffalo Bills. "Actually, the majority of the passes that I caught, I wasn't really the first read," Smith said regarding Colin Kaepernick's ability to work through the progressions on offense. "We still didn't maximize our opportunities. I feel like we left some plays on the field so we'll get back at it. I think he did a great job his first week back."

Smith said that Kaepernick is a competitor, wants to win and that they are all on the same page.

"I think [the Tampa Bay Buccaneers] defense is way better than their record shows," Smith said while discussing the 49ers' upcoming opponent. He stated that players like CB Brent Grimes are still playing at a very high level. Smith warns that the offense will have to be sharp because, if you make a mistake, a player like Grimes will make you pay.

"We're going to have to be very very disciplined and on the same page and just make plays," Smith continued. "If we make plays, we'll win the game."

Regarding the defense's poor performances this season, Smith said, "I feel like the defense can score a million times – I mean, can give up a million points but it's our job to score more than the other team. I think they'll get it together. It's not a talent issue." Smith pointed out that the 49ers were still in the game in the third quarter against the Bills and things just got out of hand.

Smith went on to say that the wind presented some issues for the 49ers offense against the Bills, but that overall, Kaepernick did a good job working in the situation. "I think the wind definitely was an issue," Smith said.
