Postgame Nuggets: Colin Kaepernick on being 1-6; Chip Kelly on defensive coaching staff

Oct 23, 2016 at 5:09 PM--


Colin Kaepernick spoke to the media following the San Francisco 49ers' sixth-straight loss of the season. It is the franchise's first six-game losing streak since 2008. The 49ers now sit with a 1-6 record and a good argument could be made that they are the worst team in the NFL following yet another punishing loss, this time a 34-17 defeat to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

What does Kaepernick thing about being 1-6? He was asked that following the game. "It's not a position we want to be in," Kaepernick said. "We work hard every week. We go through our preparation. We're on top of everything, but we have to go out and execute better. And where our record is right now, we have a bye week coming up. We can get some corrections, get some people healthy, come back and try to make a home stretch run."

"We have to fix this as a team. We have to correct this as a team," is what head coach Chip Kelly tells the team according to Kaepernick.

Meanwhile, Kelly stated that no changes to the team's defensive coaching staff will be made during the bye week. That means that Jim O'Neil is likely to remain as the defensive coordinator.

When asked if he will spend more time with O'Neil during the bye week, Kelly said that they already carve out time to meet and go over things. "There's good communication going on from that standpoint," Kelly said. "So it's not like I don't know what's going on on the defensive side of the ball."

The 49ers enter their bye week searching for answers and won't play again until November 6 when they host the New Orleans Saints at Levi's Stadium.

San Francisco 49ers general manager John Lynch joined KNBR last week, just before signing a contract extension that locked him in through the 2024 season. "I kind of live in the moment," Lynch said during that interview. "So, not thinking years and years out. Don't know if I'm going to be a lifer at this thing, but I love what we're doing. I love coming to work each day." It's that "Don't know if I'm going to be a lifer at this thing" portion that created a few waves. Maybe some ripples. Still, it was a comment that was dissected on social media. It is an example of something that is, perhaps, overanalyzed, when everyone pretty much knows there is nothing there. Some, however, questioned if being a general manager was not something Lynch

NFL Network analyst Brian Baldinger joined 95.7 The Game on Tuesday and explained why he believes the reigning NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, San Francisco 49ers defensive end Nick Bosa, can be even better in 2020. How much better? Baldinger believes Bosa is a candidate for the NFL Defensive Player of the Year Award. "I think, honestly, in talking to players that have played with Nick Bosa in practice, and talking to oppositions that have had to block him," Baldinger said on the Bonta, Steiny & Guru show, "I believe -- and I was with a general manager last night talking about pass rushers and, specifically, Nick Bosa -- I think he's got a very good chance to be the defensive MVP of this league. I think he has that kind of talent. "And
