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.

Mike Florio, Peter King, and Chris Simms each made their predictions for the NFL Defensive Player of the Year for the 2020 season. The selection process was a little different, though. In a draft-style process, the trio each selected three players who could earn the award, creating a list of nine total candidates. King's first choice was Los Angeles Rams defensive tackle and two-time winner of the award Aaron Donald. With Donald off the board, Simms went with the San Francisco 49ers' young second-year pass rusher, Nick Bosa, as his first selection. "I'm going to go with Nick Bosa, 49ers, off the edge," Simms told Florio and King after stating that Donald may be too obvious a choice. "We know that defense is good. I expect them to be good. I'll go with Nick
