Tomsula: 49ers will continue with established schematics

Feb 19, 2015 at 9:51 AM--


San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Tomsula met with the media today at the NFL Scouting Combine in Indianapolis. He seemed more comfortable in front of the media than he has in the past.

Tomsula even discussed his initial press conference and interviews which have been widely criticized by the media. Regarding his introductory press conference, he said "I didn't do a good job." He stated that he did not get enough rest the night before even through he was encouraged to do so.

When asked about the transition from smaller audiences to larger ones now that he is an NFL head coach, he stated that he does have some experience with larger audiences from his time in NFL Europe.

He also said that he has been practicing his interview skills with team officials. Immediately after saying that, he moved the microphone down so that it was no longer blocking his nose and jokingly said that was one of the things that he was supposed to do.

When asked about the team's schematics on defense, Tomsula said that they would use the schematics that have already been established. Their personnel is set for that. For example, they would stay with the 3-4. He added, "We're going to use the players that we have. We have some dynamic players."

On offense, he said "Obviously, we want to run the football." That's something that general manager Trent Baalke established during the press conference introducing Tomsula.

In regards to running back Frank Gore, he called himself a "big Frank Gore guy" and confirmed that contact talks are ongoing along with all of their free agents, including wide receiver Michael Crabtree.

Regarding Justin Smith, he said that he would "shoot the bologna" with the defensive lineman after the NFL Scouting Combine. Tomsula stated that Smith has earned the right to make decisions on his own terms. Once again, Smith is contemplating retirement.

When asked about his quarterback's recent outburst with a fan on Twitter, he responded by saying that he heard about the issue this morning but also added, "I'm not a Twitter guy. I don't tweet. I don't look at tweets. I'm not really good with all of that stuff." Yesterday, Colin Kaepernick verbally attacked a fan that criticized his ability to find the open receiver.

He also talked about quarterback coach Steve Logan's ability to adapt his approach with each player. It was something that he had to do in NFL Europe where teams were constantly working with new quarterbacks each season.

49ers Notebook: Could 49ers mark end of the road for Aaron Rodgers, Tom Brady? Arik Armstead the baller; Deebo's big run; Outcome never in doubt?

There's a lot to unpack from Saturday night's memorable 13-10 win for the San Francisco 49ers over the Green Bay Packers, but some of the biggest news to surface since that game came to an end involves the legendary quarterback the 49ers faced in their latest playoff victory—and the one they could face next week. Keep in mind there are still a lot of unknowns here, including (as of Sunday morning) whether or not the 49ers will even get this opportunity when they battle in the NFC Championship next Sunday (6:40 p.m. ET/3:40 p.m. PT, FOX). But based on what Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers said Saturday night to go with what's been reported about Buccaneers quarterback Tom Brady over the past 24 hours, it's not incorrect to say the 49ers could conceivably be the team to



49ers' K'Waun Williams should be a go against the Cowboys

In case anyone missed it, the San Francisco 49ers starting slot corner K'Waun Williams opted out of the Week 18 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams because he still wasn't feeling quite right after being on the COVID/Reserve list earlier that week. NBC Sports Bay Area's Matt Maiocco appeared on KNBR Monday and brought up the fact that Williams was out. "K'waun Williams was on the COVID list, and he just didn't feel right, and he was cleared off the Covid list, so it wasn't that he was held out of the game because of Covid, but he just didn't feel right. Just the worry of the work that he wasn't able to put in heading into that game. So, he should be back." In his place the 49ers started veteran cornerback Dontae Johnson in the slot to cover wide



'They'll be a real, real mess to deal with': Cowboys' Jerry Jones offers scouting report on 49ers, has no concerns over opposing fans

While the San Francisco 49ers are preparing to head on the road for the start of the playoffs, the Dallas Cowboys are preparing to host Kyle Shanahan's squad. Naturally, the last thing the Cowboys want to see is a takeover of their home stadium, which is what we saw at SoFi Stadium during the regular-season finale against the Los Angeles Rams. On Tuesday morning, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones joined 105.3 The Fan and acknowledged that he has no control over who buys the tickets. However, he boasted about the Cowboys having the highest resale ticket prices in the NFL right now, which he feels could help limit the number of opposing fans for the playoff matchup. Although, he also
