Blaine Gabbert will start against Seahawks

Nov 9, 2015 at 4:36 PM--


The San Francisco 49ers today announced that QB Blaine Gabbert will get the start during the team's November 22 game against the Seahawks in Seattle.

Gabbert made his first start for the 49ers on Sunday and led the team to a 17-16 upset victory over the Atlanta Falcons at Levi's Stadium.


The Falcons defense went into the game ranked 24th in the league against the pass. Gabbert finished the game 15 of 25 for 185 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions. The victory was just Gabbert's sixth of his career. He would also add 32 rushing yards on nine carries.

Earlier today, head coach Jim Tomsula would not announce a starting quarterback until he had a chance to talk to Gabbert and Colin Kaepernick, who last week was benched in favor of the former.

49ers preparing for 'toughest game of the year' against Seahawks

Things have been uncharacteristically bad for the Seattle Seahawks lately. After starting the season 2-2, with one of those wins coming on the road against the 49ers in Week 4, the Seahawks have struggled as much as any team in the NFL, losing six of their last seven games. The offense has been problematic while quarterback Russell Wilson hasn't found his top form since returning from finger surgery, and at this point it seems likely they'll miss the postseason for only the second time since 2012. The 49ers have been moving in the opposite direction, winning their last three games after a 3-5 start while picking up momentum towards a possible playoff run. But despite the way things have been trending, the 49ers aren't getting overconfident at all about their

Wide receiver Deebo Samuel and linebacker Fred Warner were among the players who exited Sunday's game between the San Francisco 49ers and Minnesota Vikings due to injuries. Head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke with reporters via a conference call on Monday and provided several injury updates, including those suffered by Samuel and Warner. Wide receiver Deebo Samuel suffered a groin strain. "I expect him to miss one to two weeks," Shanahan said. Linebacker Fred Warner is dealing with a hamstring strain and will miss this weekend's game against the Seattle Seahawks. "Hopefully, he'll be back the next one," Shanahan said. Running back Trey Sermon suffered an ankle sprain. "It's not [a high-ankle sprain], but it was a pretty bad one. He'll be out for a little

The bad news is that the San Francisco 49ers will be without their leading receiver, Deebo Samuel, this weekend against the Seattle Seahawks. The good news is that the receiver isn't dealing with a long-term injury. Head coach Kyle Shanahan told reporters on Monday that Samuel should only miss one to two weeks. Still, Samuel has clearly been the 49ers' most-valuable player this season. On Sunday, he became the first Niners wide receiver to surpass 1,000 receiving yards since Anquan Boldin did so in 2014. Samuel has also been a crucial part of San

No one at the San Francisco 49ers team facility is taking the Seattle Seahawks lightly. On Monday night, the Seahawks lost their third straight and sixth of the last seven games, falling to 3-8 on the season. The 49ers, however, appear to be surging. They have won three straight and four of their last five games. After being cast aside earlier in the season, San Francisco is now entrenched in the playoff hunt. This is 49ers-Seahawks, though. Oddsmakers favor the 6-5 Niners in the road matchup, but Seattle coach Pete Carroll has had 49ers coach Kyle Shanahan's number in recent years. The Seahawks have won the last three meetings between the two teams and four of the previous five. San Francisco's last win in Seattle came during that
