Blaine Gabbert: “No question” this is my offense

Aug 5, 2016 at 2:33 PM--


Michael Robinson of NFL Network was at San Francisco 49ers practice on Friday and spoke with Blaine Gabbert, who is one of the two quarterbacks involved in a competition for the starting job.

Gabbert was asked how he is enjoying his new coach, Chip Kelly, and the new system being installed. "It's been a lot of fun," answered Gabbert. "(Kelly) brings a lot of energy to work every day and meetings have been fun. You hear the music out at practice. Up-tempo, but it's been a blast. Our schedule has been great. Keeping the guys healthy. Keeping the legs fresh and we're taking advantage of it."

"You just have to go out there every day and put your best foot forward," said Gabbert while answering a question about the quarterback competition. "It's not my first competition and you compete every year for your job. Somebody's always there to come and try to take it."

Gabbert was asked what he needs to do to ensure that the 49ers do not have the same type of season as last year. "You just got to execute," said Gabbert. "Keep this offense on schedule. Give our defense a chance to stay in the game and really just put some points on the board."

When asked what was unique about his skill set that makes him the best choice for the starting job, Gabbert answered, "I'm sneaky athletic. I can run when I have to, but I would just say smart with the football, take care of the football, and really just distribute it to our guys."

When asked if this was his offense, Gabbert answered with a smile, "No question."

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch joined KNBR's Murph & Mac show this morning. He provided a couple of important Week 1 updates surrounding two defensive players. Lynch was first asked about defensive tackle Javon Kinlaw, who has missed practices due to a knee injury. Although, he was limited on Thursday, which was an upgrade. "He came down on that [knee] at Dallas last year, and that led to some issues," Lynch said. "You know, it's kind of a deal where we've been able to quiet it down at times. And other times, it gets flared up. He was doing really well throughout the offseason, and it kind of flared up on him again at some point a couple of weeks ago. "We tried to quiet it down, but it's not working real well right now. But the good



'Things are slowing down for me': Jimmy Garoppolo more comfortable than ever with 49ers offense

There were two narratives presented to San Francisco 49ers fans this offseason. The first was by the team itself. Even though it was drafting a quarterback of the future in Trey Lance, Jimmy Garoppolo remained very much in the plans for 2021. The other narrative was that the 49ers sought to trade Garoppolo but couldn't find a deal that fits. The team didn't care which narrative you believed. It was just moving forward with its plan. The 49ers, after all, have become incredibly proficient at blocking the outside noise, even as the coach, general manager, and player after player are repeatedly asked about the quarterback situation. Garoppolo might tell you it's an "it-is-what-it-is kind of thing," as he often does. And he'd be correct. He refused to
