Chip Kelly has not had any discussions with ownership about job security

Nov 21, 2016 at 12:21 PM--


San Francisco 49ers head coach Chip Kelly met with the media today and discussed his future with the team. In January, team CEO Jed York was asked if he would fire Kelly should the team underperform. "Chip's going to be here for a long time, period," York said.

Kelly was asked if he has gotten any assurances from York that he would be with the team next season. "No," he answered. "We haven't had any conversations about that at all. About anybody's job security."

Kelly was then asked if he fully expected to be with the team next year. He responded to the reporter by asking, "Do you?" The reporter said that he hoped so and that he has a performance review coming in December. "That makes two of us," Kelly responded. "We're all in the same boat."

The 49ers are 1-9 this season and riding a franchise tying nine-game losing streak. The last time the 49ers lost nine straight was in 1978 and Kelly has become the first single coach to do it. In 1978, the nine straight losses were between two coaches. The team has never lost 10 straight in its history.

49ers had a third-round grade on George Kittle but gambled in 2017 draft, says Adam Peters

The San Francisco 49ers loved George Kittle as the Iowa tight end entered the 2017 NFL Draft. Did they know he would eventually become one of the best to play the position? Probably not. Did they view him as a fifth-round pick? No. If NFL teams redid that draft, there is no way Kittle would last beyond the first few selections. Back in 2017, San Francisco wasn't even sure he would make it to the fifth round. The team had a higher grade on Kittle but gambled by waiting to select the player who would eventually become one of the most entertaining young stars in the game. "I remember scouting George Kittle at Iowa when I was with the Broncos, at the time," 49ers VP of player personnel Adam Peters

The San Francisco 49ers sound like they really want to take some of the pressure off of their hopefully-soon-to-be-extended All-Pro tight end, George Kittle. Head coach Kyle Shanahan could also be hoping to draw up some plays that utilize two tight ends at once on the football field. "In addition to inking Kittle to a bigger contract, the team's plan at tight end this offseason involved finding an accomplished backup who could relieve Kittle for stretches of a game," wrote Matt Barrows of The Athletic. "He missed two starts

NFL Network analyst Brian Baldinger joined 95.7 The Game on Tuesday and explained why he believes the reigning NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa, can be even better in 2020. How much better? Baldinger believes Bosa is a candidate for the NFL Defensive Player of the Year Award. "I think, honestly, in talking to players that have played with Nick Bosa in practice, and talking to oppositions that have had to block him," Baldinger said on the Bonta, Steiny & Guru show, "I believe -- and I was with a general manager last night talking about pass rushers and, specifically, Nick Bosa -- I think he's got a very good chance to be the defensive MVP of this league. I think he has that kind of talent. "And
