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.

49ers LB Fred Warner explains why being irritating at practice is a good thing

Fred Warner has been getting on the nerves of some of his 49ers teammates recently, but it's all being done in preparation for what's to come during the regular season. Warner was singled out earlier this week by wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk as being "irritating" during practice. Warner told Aiyuk in the locker room ahead of practice that he was going to be talking some smack that day, but he still seemed to get under Aiyuk's skin a little bit. "He told me what type of time it is in the locker room earlier today, so I can't be mad at him," Aiyuk said. "We're all competitors. That defense is the best defense in the National Football League, so that's



Charvarius Ward: 49ers secondary being overlooked; Brandon Aiyuk having a great camp

Charvarius Ward is a Super Bowl champion. Unfortunately for The Faithful, that championship win came against Kyle Shanahan and the San Francisco 49ers. However, Ward doesn't feel he had a great outing on February 2, 2020. A lot of that was because of Shanahan's creative offense. "That was one of the worst games of my career, though, because Kyle was calling some plays," Ward told NBC Sports Bay Area's 49ers Talk podcast. "There would be like six guys going right, but the ball was going to the left, so my eyes were all over the place. I was still young, my second year in the NFL. I was in the Super Bowl, and Kyle was just drawing up these crazy plays." Once Ward hit free agency, knowing the talent level of the team and its head coach, he wanted to join

The San Francisco 49ers added a new name to their crowded defensive line Friday, signing free agent Tomasi Laulile to a one year deal. Laulile (6-3, 300, Brigham Young) entered the NFL as an undrafted signing of the Indianapolis Colts in 2018. He spent time on the New Orleans Saints practice squad later in the year after being waived by the Colts, then was with the Saints during spring workouts in 2019 before being waived in May. The 27-year-old totaled 47 tackles, five sacks and ten tackles for loss in four seasons at BYU. He played earlier this year with the Houston Gamblers of the USFL, a stint that included a memorable game that saw him
