Five areas 49ers must thrive to end five-game skid

Posted October 26, 2016

"It's been up and down", Kelly said. "You can see that and I think that's, at any rate, like again with Colin, his last extensive playing time was in the San Diego game". Ratings for NFL games have plummeted this season, and a new poll suggests that controversy over Colin Kaepernick and others who have been refusing to stand for the national anthem is one of the main reasons. "Do you think they could bring him back to OR?"

Kaepernick made his second start after replacing Blaine Gabbert, who started the 49ers' first five games of the season. The 49ers allowed Tyrod Taylor to throw for two touchdowns and 179 yards while rushing for 68 yards. He also had 66 rushing yards on eight attempts.

Defensive coordinator Jim O'Neil has come under fire, but Kelly told reporters he is not looking to make any changes to his staff. Kelly said he already spends ample time with O'Neil on a weekly basis. So, what would the next step be in Kelly's eyes?

"Unless the media has an opportunity for me somewhere, I'll always explore those opportunities", Kelly said Thursday. Is one guy a little bit deeper out of his cut?

"It's something that the experience is, hopefully you're better from the experiences that you're getting of taking those valuable snaps that he's getting right now". "On our two touchdown drives, we had players making plays on the field and we have to be able to continually do that throughout the game because defenses are talented". "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".

Clinton Uses Trump to Tout Down-Ballot Democrats
Over the years, Clinton, who also served as a senator for New York, has expressed allegiance to the Cubs and the New York Yankees. Clinton singled out Roy Cooper and Deborah Ross, the North Carolina Democratic gubernatorial and Senate nominees, respectively.

What may seem like a publicity stunt actually makes quite a lot of sense when you look at Gabbert's performance as of late.

Kaepernick's reps with the first team in practice have tripled since he took over as the starter. There's also the matter of OR sitting at 2-4 under Kelly's former offensive coordinator, Mark Helfrich. Hands down. We need to know how to keep finishing games and work together throughout the whole game.

As a career 59.6-percent passer, Kaepernick has drawn questions about his accuracy, touch and ability to throw receivers open.

"It's not a position we want to be in", Kaepernick said. "I think they understand the rule", Kelly responded. Last week in Buffalo, winds were steady in the 22-to-25-mph range, gusting to 34 miles per hour.

The phrasing of the question stemmed from a CBS Sports report the day before that claimed "several coaches" expect Kelly to retreat back to the college ranks because the high-powered offense that made him a coaching superstar at OR hasn't translated to the NFL.
