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."

Kyle Shanahan admits he expects and deserves scrutiny for 49ers' four-game losing streak

The San Francisco 49ers' 2021 campaign is spiraling out of control. As a result, there is a lot of blame to spread around. While quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is receiving his fair share of it, so is head coach Kyle Shanahan. As the leader of the football team, he is responsible for preparing his players for game days, and the players have looked anything but prepared during this four-game losing streak. After the game, Shanahan did his best to hide his frustration resulting from his squad's latest defeat, a 30-18 loss to the Indianapolis Colts. There will be a lot to assess tomorrow morning. The coach was asked if he is deserving of the scrutiny that is being piled on



John Lynch 'fully confident' 49ers can rebound from 3-game losing streak

By David Bonilla

The San Francisco 49ers started 2-0 but have since lost three consecutive games. No one inside the organization is panicking, though. Instead, the focus remains on one game at a time. That means looking toward the Indianapolis Colts, not backward at the Green Bay Packers, Seattle Seahawks, and Arizona Cardinals. At 2-3, San Francisco sits in last place within the NFC West. However, general manager John Lynch is confident he and head coach Kyle Shanahan have built a roster that can rebound. The 49ers are in their bye week, and a lot of football remains in this 17-game season. "I'm fully confident [the pieces are in place to turn things around] because of the people in our room and the character of the people in our room, because of the people we have in leadership

49ers hope Brandon Aiyuk's 'great week' of practice carries over to Colts game, says Deebo Samuel

Brandon Aiyuk has certainly been in the spotlight over the 49ers bye week, as his lack of touches on the year has been questioned, given his impressive rookie season. Aiyuk currently has just 15 targets on the year, good for 5th on the team, and only eight of those plays have resulted in a catch. Last year, Aiyuk accumulated 60 receptions, 748 yards, and five touchdowns, leading the team in all three categories while playing in just 12 games. Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo will return to the field Sunday against the Indianapolis Colts and has had the chance to practice with Aiyuk and the first-team offense after being cleared for the calf injury he sustained against the Seattle Seahawks. Amongst that first-team offense is breakout star receiver Deebo
