San Francisco 49ers WR Torrey Smith joined Murph & Mac on KNBR 680 today and discussed the possibility of a trade, which did not occur prior to yesterday's trade deadline.

Smith described how he felt about the possibility of being traded to another team. "If it happens, alright," Smith said. "If it doesn't, I'm going to be here smiling away, ready to roll. I say that because it sucks obviously, football-wise. It hasn't been going too well for me individually. I haven't really been involved and as a team, we haven't been getting it done. The combination of the two things that hurt you the most in this profession has been going on. But I'm glad to be here and try to help be a part of the solution to get this thing back on track."

Smith was asked about the 49ers' upcoming opponent, the New Orleans Saints, who the team hosts on Sunday. "I think that we'll have our opportunities in the passing game," Smith said. "I think we have those opportunities every week. We just have to go out there and make it happen."

With RB Carlos Hyde out with a shoulder injury against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on October 23, RB DuJuan Harris was elevated from the practice squad to the active roster and turned some heads. "He played awesome last year too [with the 49ers]," Smith answered. "I don't know if you remember, but that last part of the year, he was playing awesome. You know, we have four running backs that can really play. It's a matter of who has the hot hand and who they're going to go with, but we're confident with either one of those guys back there."

When asked who he was rooting for in Game 7 of the World Series between the Cleveland Indians and the Chicago Cubs, Smith said that he was rooting for Chicago because he thinks it would be hilarious if Cleveland blew a 3-1 series lead. In June, the Golden State Warriors blew the same lead to the Cleveland Cavaliers in the NBA Finals. "I think that would be pretty funny," said Smith.

The San Francisco 49ers have had success signing their big-name players to contract extensions in recent years, securing deals with George Kittle, Fred Warner, Deebo Samuel, and Nick Bosa. However, that last one didn't get finalized until dangerously close to the start of the regular season. This year, the team has been trying to get a deal done with wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk. While the 49ers were confident early on, given their successful track record, that a deal would be reached, the two sides reportedly remain far apart in negotiations. Last week, Michael Silver of the San Francisco

How George Kittle responded to a question about 49ers' Super Bowl strategy

By David Bonilla

San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle joined the "Dan Patrick Show" and was asked a question he had not encountered before: What would he change about the strategy the 49ers deployed in their Super Bowl loss against the Kansas City Chiefs? Kittle didn't immediately have an answer. However, after reflecting on the game, he prioritized better ball protection, feeling that might have made the difference. The fumble by running back Christian McCaffrey during the opening drive is the one play that sticks out in the tight end's mind. "I think if we could [avoid] that turnover, I think that's a difference," Kittle stated. It's worth noting that Kittle had an opportunity to recover the fumble, which would have kept the football in the 49ers'

49ers on moving past Super Bowl loss: "The wound heals, but the scar is still there"

The San Francisco 49ers didn't have to sit with the sting of February's heartbreaking Super Bowl defeat for too long. That's one of the benefits of playing deep into the postseason. Before you know it, you are back at work, preparing for the next season. Two months after the loss, the 49ers reported for the start of the offseason program, which concluded last week with a two-day minicamp. Most of the players and coaches have moved past that game against the Kansas City Chiefs, but the memory of it serves as motivation for the 2024 season. That doesn't mean returning after the loss was easy. However, it's not the first time the 49ers have faced
