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.

The San Francisco 49ers defeated the Philadelphia Eagles 17-11 Sunday in a primarily defensive showdown, and star pass rusher Nick Bosa was one of the many who asserted their dominance in this game. Bosa, who had a sack last week against the Lions, worked against left tackle Jordan Mailata for the majority of the game and accumulated two sacks along with a tackle for loss Sunday. When asked about his health and response to the speed of the game, Bosa was content with his status and game plan, and will look to improve as the season progresses. "Definitely better. I thought I rushed better," Bosa said. "I think every week I'll get better. Just getting used to the flow of the game and setting things up and being smart with my rushes, and not showing

Fans weren't sure if Jaquiski Tartt would play this season. The San Francisco 49ers safety dealt with a toe injury during training camp, and his future seemed uncertain. Tartt wasn't even sure when he would return to the field. "For me, I was thinking ... Man, I probably won't be back until game five, game six," Tartt told reporters after Friday's practice. Tartt was ready to go for Week 1. "The training staff did a great job, coaches did a great job of attacking the problem with my toe," the safety continued. "For me, it was more of a spiritual thing as well, just keeping faith that I'll be back in time." There were several potential game-changing plays during the 49ers' Week 2 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles. One might
