Blaine Gabbert completed 25 of 36 passes for 318 yards, with one touchdown and an interception in Sunday's 19-13 loss to Arizona. He also had one rush for 11 yards.
Gabbert kept the San Francisco 49ers in the game against a tough opponent, but was unable to lead a comeback in the end, completing a 19-yard pass in Cardinals' territory on 4th-and-20 late in the game. He has been surprisingly competent since taking over as the 49ers' starting QB in Week 9, and he's got a favorable matchup at Chicago next week, although the Bears' defense has played much better as of late.
Gabbert played well in San Francisco's Week 9 win over Atlanta, leading them to a surprising victory. Things played out a little differently Sunday against the Legion of Boom, although Gabbert looked more than adequate as San Francisco's new starting QB, making several nice throws in and out of the pocket. With Colin Kaepernick (shoulder) on season-ending IR, Gabbert won't have to look over his shoulder each week. He is in that Alex Smith range of quarterbacks that have a high floor and low ceiling due to their propensity to make low-risk throws. Next up for the
Blaine Gabbert will continue to serve as the starting quarterback out of the San Francisco 49ers ' Week 10 bye, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reports.
Under center in place of Colin Kaepernick on Sunday against the Falcons, Gabbert acquitted himself well in his first start since 2013, completing 15 of 25 passes for 185 for two touchdowns. He also tossed two picks, but of utmost importance, the 49ers boasted some balance, augmenting the passing game with 133 yards on the ground. Expect Gabbert to be under center on Nov. 22 at Seattle.
Blaine Gabbert completed 15-of-25 passes for 185 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Sunday's win over Atlanta. He added 32 yards on the ground on eight carries.
Gabbert looked good early, connecting with his receivers on a handful of back-shoulder throws and finding his tight end Garrett Celek in the end zone twice. He unraveled a bit in the second half, tossing two picks, one off of a deflection and another on an underthrow. Gabbert has now thrown multiple interceptions in each of his last four starts dating back to 2013. His propensity for throwing picks and role presiding over a mediocre San Francisco offense makes him a high-risk, low-reward option wading in the free-agency pool.
San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Tomsula did not say whether Blaine Gabbert will continue to start at quarterback after the upcoming bye week, CSN Bay Area reports. "Gabbert was our starter today," Tomsula said. "And I don't have a comment past that."
Gabbert got his first start since 2013 in Sunday's 17-16 win over the Atlanta Falcons, completing 15 of 25 passes for 185 yards, with two touchdowns and two interceptions. He probably played well enough to keep the job for a second game, but it's still possible the 49ers will want to give Colin Kaepernick another shot. San Francisco has a Week 10 bye, followed by games against the Seahawks (Week 11) and Cardinals (Week 12).
