Al Sacco on 95.7 The Game: I think the 49ers will bring back Kelly and Kaepernick

Dec 3, 2016 at 9:20 PM--


Our own Al Sacco joined Zakariah on 95.7 The Game to discuss the San Francisco 49ers as they head into their matchup with the Chicago Bears.

Sacco was asked who he sees returning to the team from a list that included general manager Trent Baalke, head coach Chip Kelly, and quarterback Colin Kaepernick. "I think the answer to that question would depend on how the next five games play out," Sacco answered. "If it continues to go terrible and the Niners are 1-15 and they can't win a game at Chicago this week -- they're playing against third stringers basically -- then I think you've got to blow it all up, personally.

"But I think if things continue to kind of go status quo, the Niners continue to look a little bit better on offense, I think you bring Kelly back and I think you bring Kaepernick back and say, 'Let's see what we can do for another year.' And I think Baalke's got to go.

"The last thing Jed York wants to do right now is change coaches again. It would be the fourth coach in four years, next year with a new one and I think he hopes Kelly can do enough to stick around and I think that he will. And I think that eventually what he'll see is -- just because it's a York move to make -- is they'll promote Tom Gamble, stay with Chip Kelly and sort of stay status quo with Kelly and Gamble and what they're doing. And Kelly will have more power in the franchise and Gamble will try to build and try to improve.

"But I think those are the two that you want to keep and I just don't think there's any way they can keep Baalke. From what he's done to the roster, I don't think there's any way they can justify it."

Jason Verrett, Emmanuel Moseley bring swagger to 49ers secondary, says Jerry Rice

The San Francisco 49ers owned the top-ranked pass defense in the NFL last season. Most assumed that much of that had to do with the ferocious pass rush featuring Nick Bosa, Arik Armstead, Dee Ford, and others. While the 49ers rank No. 13 against the pass this season, Hall of Fame wide receiver Jerry Rice sees something in the team's secondary that he has not seen from a San Francisco squad in a while. "I'm going to tell you, I'm watching Jason Verrett, and I'm saying, 'Where did this guy come from?'" Rice said on 95.7 The Game's The Morning Roast. "The plays that he was making yesterday, and also Emmanuel Moseley, they had the swagger, they had the confidence, and you can see they brought something to that secondary that we hadn't had for a

Kyle Shanahan: Is the young, "cool," and "fearless" coach's old-school mentality holding the 49ers back?

The San Francisco 49ers describe their head coach as a "detailed wizard," and an "aggressive guru," but Kyle Shanahan's actions -- and words -- tell a different story of a man struggling to find a path to greatness. Prior to the San Francisco 49ers' NBC Sunday Night Football matchup with the Los Angeles Rams, sideline reporter Michelle Tafoya asked each player from both teams for three words which best describe their respective head coach. The point of the exercise was to highlight the similarities between the two young coaches, which was a common theme throughout the broadcast. Four of the words provided were identical, and the remainder were relatively similar. However, Shanahan's descriptors formed the image of a "smart" and "relentless"

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan informed reporters that running back Raheem Mostert suffered a high-ankle sprain on Sunday night against the Los Angeles Rams. "We'll see how it progresses," Shanahan said. "Most likely IR (for Mostert)." Mostert will have company. Center Ben Garland left Sunday's game with a calf strain and will be "out for a while," according to Shanahan. He will "most likely" land on injured reserve later this week too. Shanahan said Hroniss Grasu would replace Garland until center Weston Richburg can return (see below). Shanahan also provided the following injury updates. Safety Jaquiski Tartt suffered a groin strain. The 49ers will learn more this week about the severity of the
