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."

49ers Offense Will Be Even Better in 2020

By Gilbert Brink
Jun 30, 2020

In 2019, the 49ers fielded one of the very best offenses in the NFL. Come this fall, the 49ers offense will be even better. This past season the 49ers ranked 4th in the league in total yards, 2nd in the league in rushing yards and 2nd in the league in points per game. Truth be told, there isn't much room for improvement. Or is there? While they could only improve slightly in league ranking, they certainly can improve in terms of overall production heading into Kyle Shanahan's fourth year as head coach/offensive play-caller. In Super Bowl 54 it was apparent that the 49ers needed just a little bit more. Clinging to a 20-10 lead with just over 7 minutes to go, the 49ers failed to answer the bell rung by Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs. With these few key changes made

How Kyle Shanahan's Seven-Man Protections Work in the 49ers' Offense

By Bret Rumbeck
Jul 2, 2020

The seven-man pass protection in today's NFL seems a little foreign, considering how much the tight end position has evolved over the last 20 years. Today's hybrid tight end, a man built from DNA spliced from a sprinter, basketball player and professional wrestler, has an integral role in the passing attack. A generation ago, San Francisco 49ers tight end Brent Jones finished his career averaging 36.3 receiving yards per game. Flash twenty-five years in the future and tight end George Kittle is averaging 65.4 yards per game over his first three seasons. Head coach Kyle Shanahan's system is firmly rooted in the West Coast Offense, even mimicking some of Bill Walsh's old
