Harbaugh: Colin’s our QB, no coaching staff changes, and more

Dec 8, 2014 at 12:16 PM--


During his Monday press conference, San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh was asked today if he had considered playing quarterback Blaine Gabbert in place of Colin Kaepernick or if the team would play him in the future.

Harbaugh simply stated that "Colin's our quarterback."

When asked if there would be any changes to his coaching staff, he said, "No."

When asked about the University of Michigan reaching out to him this past week, Harbaugh replied, "As a principle, I don't talk about any other job, other than the one I have."

When asked if the team's very slim playoff hopes would factor into the decision to get linebacker NaVorro Bowman back on the field this season, he replied, "I think it would be based medically on where his status is and what is best for his football career now and in the future."

The medical staff involved in Bowman's recovery will make a decision by Tuesday on whether he will be added to the 53-man roster or leave him on an injury list that would end his season.

When asked if he thinks that this team is as tough as it has always been, Harbaugh replied, "Yes."

Harbaugh also stated that preliminary results on injured center Marcus Martin (knee) and cornerback Chris Culliver (knee) were good, but that the team is awaiting test results.

'I really believe that Jimmy is our guy': John Lynch has no doubt Garoppolo will be the 49ers' QB

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch was fairly blunt when talking about quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo in January. "As for the quarterback position, Kyle (Shanahan) and I both have spoken, and spoken fairly directly as to the fact that we expect Jimmy to be our quarterback," Lynch told reporters during an end-of-season press conference. "That's consistently met with other stories, but that's not of concern to us." That hasn't stopped a significant amount of speculation surrounding the quarterback's future. The 49ers have been linked to nearly every quarterback trade rumor. They reportedly inquired about Matthew Stafford and Carson Wentz, but there is no

It's been the better part of a decade since Alex Smith and Colin Kaepernick were part of the same quarterback room with the San Francisco 49ers, but Smith still sounds as impressed as ever with what he experienced on and off the field when the two of them were teammates. Smith spoke for almost an hour this week on Kaepernick and a number of other subjects during a guest spot on the 10 Questions With Kyle Brandt Podcast (click here to listen). Smith, who was the starting quarterback for the 49ers when Kaepernick was selected in Round 2 of the 2011 NFL Draft, told Brandt he remembered Kaepernick as a "great dude" who brought an impressive work ethic to the NFL right out of the gate. "We were doing workouts



ESPN's Smith and Kellerman have different QB predictions for the 49ers

Stephen A. Smith and Max Kellerman of ESPN's First Take have different predictions on who will start at quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers during the upcoming season. Kellerman often defends Jimmy Garoppolo against Smith's criticisms, so you might naturally assume that Kellerman would predict that San Francisco would avoid shaking things up. You might also assume that the critical Smith predicts that the 49ers move on from Garoppolo. The opposite is true. Smith envisions San Francisco sticking with Garoppolo while Kellerman has another quarterback in mind to lead head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense. "Me personally, I think it's going to be Jimmy G (as the 49ers' starter)," Smith declared. "That's what I believe. I believe that everybody's been



PFF predicts landing spots for 49ers' Trent Williams and Richard Sherman

Anthony Treash of Pro Football Focus provided updated landing spots for the top 50 impending free agents. You might remember the analytics site predicting in January that offensive tackle Trent Williams would return to the San Francisco 49ers on a four-year, $80 million deal with $62.5 million in guarantees. Nothing has changed since then. That remains exactly what Treash predicts for Williams, who is listed as Pro Football Focus' fifth-highest ranked impending free agent. "San Francisco is going to have to work some magic this offseason," explains Treash. "They are projected to have just around $13.5 million in cap space available, but star tackle Trent Williams
