Brian Hoyer: ‘I knew that I’d come in and have an opportunity to start’

Mar 10, 2017 at 4:04 PM--


New San Francisco 49ers quarterback Brian Hoyer joined KNBR to discuss his decision to sign with the team and reunite with head coach Kyle Shanahan. Hoyer started 13 games in 2014 while Shanahan was the offensive coordinator for a season with the Cleveland Browns. That year, Hoyer passed for a career-high 3,326 yards, completing 55.3 percent of his passes and throwing 12 touchdowns compared to 13 interceptions.

"Obviously, I know that they didn't have any quarterbacks on their roster," Hoyer said. "I knew that I'd come in and have an opportunity to start and I'd come in knowing, a pretty good idea of how to run this offense."

Hoyer went on to say that they now have some players on the roster who are comfortable with Shanahan's offense and it will be up to them to help lead the team. He attributed his leadership skills to watching Tom Brady in New England for three years. "You watch him run a practice and you would think it's a Super Bowl," Hoyer said of Brady. "That's something that I always tried to take with me and kind of emulate was be the guy all the time and not just on Sundays. You've got to earn those guys' respect. It will start day one in April when we start here."

What makes a Shanahan offense so successful? "I think what Kyle does so well is he puts the people he has in the best position to success," Hoyer answered. "We saw that in Atlanta. In Cleveland, what we were able to do with the players that we had was really remarkable. Kyle was a big part of that because he knows how to scheme plays up. He knows how to tie plays together so the defense, when they're looking at the play, everything looks the same except for maybe one thing is different and that's where you have to expose them.

"He's real good at sitting down. He studies a lot of tape. He watches the defense and knows how to attack them and then creates a game plan and makes it so we can go out and be successful and just go out and execute it."

From special teams hopeful to surprising 49ers star: Rookie Elijah Mitchell grateful for the opportunity

By David Bonilla
Dec 2

In August, San Francisco 49ers rookie running back Elijah Mitchell said he was willing to do "anything and everything" just to make the roster. As a sixth-round pick, and the team's last selection in this year's draft, nothing was guaranteed for him. Mitchell wasn't even the first running back drafted by the 49ers. The team selected Trey Sermon in the third round. For Mitchell, that meant doing whatever was asked of him just to ensure that his time with the 49ers didn't come to a close. "Like I said, I'm willing to do anything and everything just to be on this team," Mitchell said. "So, [special teams] is going to be one of my roles but also being a



Fowler: 49ers have 'no major concerns' surrounding Deebo Samuel and Fred Warner injuries

The San Francisco 49ers aren't too concerned about the injuries that wide receiver Deebo Samuel and linebacker Fred Warner sustained during Sunday's 34-26 victory over the Minnesota Vikings. Samuel exited the game due to a groin injury. A hamstring injury sidelined Warner. On Monday morning, NFL insider Ian Rapoport reported that Samuel's setback is "not considered a major injury," but that the team's leading receiver is expected to "miss a little time." That more than likely rules Samuel out for Sunday's Week 13 game against the Seattle Seahawks. ESPN's Jeremy Fowler provided an update on both players, who received MRIs on Monday morning.

49ers-Seahawks: Garoppolo confident 49ers would have scored on last play if pass wasn't batted

Carlos Dunlap's hand may have been all that stopped the San Francisco 49ers from scoring on their final play during their 30-23 loss to the Seattle Seahawks on Sunday. The 49ers had the ball on a 4th-and-Goal with seconds to play when quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo spotted wide receiver Trent Sherfield open near the end zone. Garoppolo threw the ball in Sherfield's direction, only to have it batted away by the 6-7 defensive end. With the game on the line, the Seahawks defense came up HUGE 💪📺 Re-watch the game »
