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."

'I think they like all three': Schefter says 49ers keeping an open mind on QB draft prospects

Right now, if he were forced to make a guess, Adam Schefter is in the camp of those who would tell you that the San Francisco 49ers are drafting quarterback Mac Jones of Alabama with the No. 3 overall pick. However, there are still 18 days until the start of the 2021 NFL Draft, things are fluid, and things might change. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch attended Jones' second pro day on March 30, picking that event over former Ohio State quarterback Justin Fields' workout, which took place on the same day. That, of course, led to massive speculation that San Francisco prefers the Alabama quarterback to the former Buckeye or even Trey Lance of North Dakota State. Shanahan and Lynch are expected to be in attendance for the second pro days of

Peter King of NBC Sports was the first to report that San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch would be in attendance for the second pro days of both Justin Fields of Ohio State and Trey Lance of North Dakota State.

Pelissero: Justin Fields and Trey Lance pro days to feature drills and throws from 49ers practices

Justin Fields of Ohio State will hold a second pro day workout on Wednesday. Five days later, Trey Lance of North Dakota State will take part in his second. Both are trying to ensure that they are selected ahead of Mac Jones of Alabama. Trevor Lawrence of Clemson is expected to be drafted No. 1 overall. The New York Jets are expected to select Zach Wilson of BYU at No. 2. Assuming San Francisco targets a quarterback, that leaves Jones, Fields, and Lance as San Francisco's choices at No. 3. Jones is the overwhelming favorite to be the pick if you ask members of the national media. Fans would much prefer the more athletic and higher ceilinged prospects in Fields or Lance. Head coach Kyle Shanahan and general manager John Lynch chose to attend Jones'
