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' wide receiver Deebo Samuel was named an AP 1st Team All-Pro for the first time in his young career on Friday. He is the first 49ers wide receiver to earn that honor since Terrell Owens earned his third nod back in 2002. There is no doubt that Deebo deserved the honor as he posted eye-popping stats during his 2021 campaign: 1st in yards per reception (18.2) 3rd in yards from scrimmage (1770) 5th in receiving yards (1405) 3rd amongst wide receivers in total touchdowns (14) Set an NFL record for rushing touchdowns by a receiver (8) It's hard to argue that Deebo wasn't the most valuable player on the 49ers' offense this season, and his versatility is largely the reason why. Not only was he the team's number one receiving
