Kaepernick talks offense, Chargers, more

Sep 1, 2015 at 2:19 PM--


How are you gaging the progress of the offense at this point in the preseason?
"It's going well. Working hard. Making sure everybody's doing what they need to do to get ready for this season."

What's happening that we don't see? We don't know the game plan. We don't know anything. What's happening that's good that you guys are seeing?
"Well, there's a lot of good things that are happening and you guys don't know for a reason. So, we keep everything in house. We're working to make sure we're ready for that first game."

Do you think you'll get a lot of time Thursday or no?
"It'll depend on what the coaches think. They haven't told us anything yet."

Would you like to play a lot in that last game or no?
"I'm always willing to step on that field."

What have been your early impressions of your new starting right guard?
"He's been phenomenal. Done very well since he's been here. Picked up everything quickly. Went in and played well for us this past game. So, excited to see what he can do."

Did you pick up on anything with him on that two-minute drill at the end of the first half? Like how he was playing or his composure or anything?
"Yeah. He was very composed and like I said on Saturday, the two scrambles that I had, he allowed me to step up through the pocket and make those plays. Our interior, both our guards, our center, did a great job and our tackles ran the ends past. So, excited to see what they can do."

Is it kind of the nature of the preseason that you guys don't have a specific game plan? Sometimes you're trying to work on things and that may be contrary to what you're seeing across the way. Is that why sometimes it just doesn't look anything like it does during the regular season?
"Yeah, that's part of it. We're focused on us and what we need to do to get ready. So, what defenses are doing in preseason, we don't worry about too much. We're more focused on how we're executing our plays."

OL Jordan Devey brings a veteran presence to that offensive line now that he's officially been named starting right guard. What have you seen just in the short time he's been here?
"Just covered that, but he's been great. Picked up everything quickly. Did a great job for us so far since he's been here."

It's been early yet, he still has to gel, but with a new center, right tackle, right guard, just what's that early strength you're seeing from that group of five?
"Well, even through the preseason with the different combinations we've had out there, we've been able to run the ball very well. So, I think that will be a strength for us and when they were in the game on Saturday together they did a great job for us during that two-minute drill. So, moving forward, I think everyone's confident with what we have there."

What kind of progress do you want to see on Thursday from your offensive unit?
"To execute. That's the biggest thing. We need to go out and make sure we run our plays well and doing what we're supposed to do out there."

Do you have anything to say about this smiling guy to left right over here?
"My man [G/C] Dillon [Farrell]. You know, he's been working hard. I don't approve of the thong flip flops, but he's tatted up so I give him a thumbs up."

'Mission Accomplished': 49ers defense talks shutting down Saints, RB Alvin Kamara

By Kirk Larrabee
Nov 27

The San Francisco 49ers defense came into Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints having shut out three consecutive teams in the third and fourth quarters of their last three wins. On Sunday they took it to another level, shutting out the Saints for all four quarters in a 13-0 win that gave the 49ers their fourth victory in a row. The performance came at the right time for the 49ers offense, which faced a tough task against a stout Saints defense and wasn't running on all cylinders the way they were in their previous win, a dominant 38-10 showing over the Arizona Cardinals in Mexico last Monday. But 13 points was more than enough on this day for the 49ers defense, who held the Saints to 260 yards of total offense and just 63 yards on the ground in front of a home crowd
