DB Adrian Colbert


How do you feel about your game and where you are right now after being in the league a couple of years?

"I feel like I'm getting back to my old self. I'm healthy. That's it. I'm trying to get back to my old self, to the one that everyone saw my rookie year. I feel like I'm finally back in a good place mentally and physically to go out and perform like I used to do."

Why do you feel like you weren't your old self last year?

"There are just a lot of reasons. A lot of outside things that I was dealing with and the way that I handled the offseason. Lessons, not losses."

How do you get yourself back to where you want to be?

"I've prepared tremendously this offseason in ways that I wish I would have going into my second year. I wish I would have prepared the way I did this year, but I didn't so I just have to live with it and work my way back up to what I used to be and where I used to be."

WR Jalen Hurd


You are known for having the best hands on the team. Is that because you made the transition from the running back position?

"Honestly, I would say just working at it. When I first switched to receiver, I was on the JUGS machine for a very long, long time. I would catch five to six hundred balls in the offseason when I switched over to receiver. I am really just playing it out and consistently staying on it. Being strong as well helps and then having good balls skills, which kind of goes hand-in-hand."

Is this a good indication tonight of what you can do in the red zone?

"Yes, I can do different things. We will see what they do with me. I love the opportunity, so I am just trying to seize the opportunity and make a play."

How did you like the fact that you had a defender waiting for you at the goal line?

"It was nice. It made it look better. If I walked in, it wouldn't have been as cool."

WR Deebo Samuel


In a nutshell, is this game's performance a good indication of the things you can do on the football field?

"Really I am just taking advantage of every opportunity I get out there."

Did this debut give more confidence, not that you needed any?

"I played pretty well, but I am just blessed to be out there and play the game I love to play."

How do you think San Francisco 49ers WR Jalen Hurd played?

"He played pretty well. Like [49ers Head] coach [Kyle] Shanahan said, we bring the physicality in the group. That over route for a touchdown that he caught, you can see with his big frame and with his body it is going to take more than one person to bring him down."

Was it fun to watch?

"It made me excited."
