Tomsula: ‘We have no right to overlook anyone’

Dec 14, 2015 at 12:42 PM--


San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Tomsula spoke to the media today. As far as injuries go, LG Alex Boone, who was injured on Sunday against the Cleveland Browns, is having an MRI today. He confirmed that RB Kendall Gaskins did indeed suffer a concussion and is going through the concussion protocol this week. WR Torrey Smith is being treated for the back spasms that kept bringing him out of Sunday's game. DB Jimmie Ward suffered an elbow contusion and not a break.

Many of the questions focused around player comments following the game. Tomsula disagreed with LT Joe Staley and his comments that the team may have overlooked the Browns. "Maybe he was speaking from a personal note. I don't know," said Tomsula. "Number one, we have no right to overlook anyone. Number two, in the NFL, I don't care if you are 14-0, you better not overlook anyone."

"We didn't execute. I didn't see an effort problem," said Tomsula regarding the loss on Sunday.

Tomsula confirmed that his coaching staff would not change for the team's final three games.

When asked if there were younger guys that the team would like to take a look at, Tomsula said, "No. I think you've seen us working everybody all year."

The 49ers run defense was atrocious during Sunday's loss. Tomsula feels that the defensive mistakes are correctable.

Trey Lance may well find himself as the starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers before the season's out, but he clearly won't be starting training camp that way based on what head coach Kyle Shanahan said Tuesday. The 49ers obviously plan on Lance eventually being the starter over incumbent Jimmy Garoppolo after trading up to select him with the third overall pick in the 2021 NFL Draft. But as of now, the job remains Garoppolo's to lose. "There's no open competition right now in terms of they're getting equal reps with the same group," Shanahan told reporters Tuesday, one day before the start of camp. "Jimmy's coming in as the one and Trey's coming in as the two." Lance



Kyle Shanahan: Jimmy Garoppolo the 49ers' starter because "he's the best quarterback right now"

San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan spoke briefly with Steve Mariucci of NFL Network after Saturday's practice. Naturally, Mariucci brought up the team's quarterback situation. The plan is to enter Week 1 with the veteran, Jimmy Garoppolo, as the starter. However, the team used a high draft pick to add Trey Lance, who is the quarterback of the future. Mariucci asked Shanahan to once again confirm that Garoppolo is the 49ers' starter and how the coach manages the practice and preseason reps between the two, with Lance needing experience to eventually take over the offense. "It's not bad with the one and two," Shanahan said. "And yeah, that is true. Jimmy's our starter because he's our best quarterback right now. And obviously, we think a lot of Trey, and

The NFL reportedly informed teams that it would not extend the 18-week season to accommodate a COVID-19 outbreak among unvaccinated players. Last year, there were multiple postponements as the league navigated through the bizarre season amid a pandemic. There will be no rescheduling of games in 2021. The league hopes players will take it upon themselves to get vaccinated and protect themselves and their families as training camps get set to kick off. Should there be an outbreak, the impacted club or clubs could be forced to forfeit, accruing a defeat, and not being paid for the lost game. A team with an outbreak could also be responsible for

During a segment on Inside Training Camp Live, NFL Network's Steve Mariucci, or "Mooch" as he is known to fans, was asked to share his thoughts on the San Francisco 49ers as the team prepares for the 2021 season. It sounds like the analyst, like fans, has high expectations for head coach Kyle Shanahan's squad. While 2020 was a disappointment, the team owned the most injury-plagued roster in the league. The campaign wasn't what coaches, players, and fans envisioned for an organization coming off of a Super Bowl appearance. "This team, the 49ers, [were] 6-10, last place, and they might have the best roster in football," Mariucci told Andrew
