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."

49ers' Kyle Juszczyk: 'As long as Jimmy's healthy, I think he's our guy'

Kyle Juszczyk is going to support whoever is lined up under center for the San Francisco 49ers. The plan is for quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo to be that guy when the team travels to Detroit for Week 1. However, San Francisco planned for the future, surrendering future draft picks to trade up to No. 3 overall for Trey Lance. The 49ers own a championship-caliber roster. Garoppolo has led the team to a Super Bowl before, so it's easy to conclude that the team's best chance of getting there again is with the veteran. San Francisco's Pro Bowl fullback joined the Ross Tucker Football Podcast this week and was asked about his team's quarterback situation. It's a topic that Juszczyk has grown used to discussing at length. Most 49ers players probably have. It will



Fred Warner impressed with 49ers' offseason, excited to get stars back

The San Francisco 49ers headed into the offseason with a lot of uncertainty surrounding the roster's future. They exited the 2020 season with nearly 40 players scheduled to become free agents, unrestricted or otherwise, like Trent Williams, Kyle Juszczyk, Jason Verrett, and K'Waun Williams. Those are a lot of potential losses. And, at first, San Francisco seemingly didn't have a lot of salary-cap space to work with. There wasn't a mass exodus or a roster pudge, though, and the 49ers managed to find the money needed to bring back nearly everyone they wanted. There were only a few losses, like wide receiver Kendrick Bourne leaving for the New England Patriots. Linebacker Fred Warner joined 95.7 The Game on Friday and was asked about management's

ESPN's Adam Schefter reported this morning that former San Francisco 49ers cornerback Richard Sherman was arrested and booked on a charge of "burglary domestic violence."

The intruder reportedly fought with police upon their arrival but was eventually apprehended and later booked into the Seattle Correctional Facility. Sherman's wife, Ashley, told the Seattle Times that both she and the couple's kids are fine and that no one was harmed during the

Richard Sherman is going through a difficult situation right now. He was arrested on Wednesday morning after allegedly crashing his vehicle, then causing a disturbance at the residence of his in-laws, and eventually resisting law enforcement. Sherman was charged with "burglary domestic violence," with the "domestic violence" designation being assigned due to the cornerback being related to individuals inside the residence where the incident took place. While Sherman and officers suffered some minor injuries before the cornerback was apprehended, no one else was injured. More troubling was the
