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.

Ryan Harris, a former offensive lineman turned broadcaster and analyst, joined CBS Sports HQ to discuss the young quarterbacks of the San Francisco 49ers and Chicago Bears. He was asked which passer—Trey Lance or Justin Fields—finds himself in the best situation. Harris' answer? Lance, who is on a roster coming off an NFC title game appearance. However, there is one caveat to that answer. "But I'm here to tell you, after people I've talked to, everyone I've spoken to expected Jimmy Garoppolo to start [Week 1 against the Bears]," Harris said. There has been an offseason narrative that Trey Lance is not yet ready to step into the starting role for a team built to win now. Of course, those who follow the 49ers closely realize that if that
