Post-game Quotes: 49ers players react to 17-9 preseason win over the Cowboys

Aug 10, 2019 at 11:58 PM--

The following are select post-game quotes from San Francisco 49ers players following Saturday's 17-9 win over the Dallas Cowboys.

Quotes provided by the 49ers Communications staff.

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."

ESPN identifies 49ers-Texans trade that would be a win-win for both teams

ESPN's Field Yates named five win-win NFL trades on Thursday morning, all while noting that such deals are unlikely. NFL trades, in general, are rare compared to other leagues, but the ESPN insider went ahead with the task anyway. The San Francisco 49ers were involved in one of the hypothetical trades, and it involved shipping off the team's second-round pick from 2018 — wide receiver Dante Pettis. Who would the Niners get in return? The Houston Texans' fourth-round selection from the same year, wide receiver Keke Coutee. "Coutee -- taken in the 2018 draft, like Pettis -- provides San

NFL cancels Weeks 1 and 4 of preseason, eliminating Broncos, Chargers from 49ers' schedule

The NFL is canceling Weeks 1 and 4 of the preseason, according to Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk. The league is reportedly expected to announce the decision on Thursday. "The move was driven by two primary factors," writes Florio. "First, teams who will be playing preseason games on the road won't want to move that many people. Second, given that no teams had on-field practice sessions in the offseason, coaches would rather have the extra time to work with their teams, and that will happen if they don't have to worry about two extra preseason games." For the 49ers, this will mean the elimination of the team's August 15 road game against the Denver

The San Francisco 49ers have been holding player-organized throwing sessions at the Brentwood Academy, which is just outside Nashville, Tennessee. The team moved locations from San Jose State to allow more player participation. One of those players was wide receiver Deebo Samuel, who had been training in Houston, Texas, before this week. He suffered a Jones fracture in his left foot on Tuesday. NFL insider Ian Rapoport estimated 12 to 16 weeks of recovery time, but Samuel says it will be closer to 10. The Nashville area was chosen because several 49ers players spent
