Despite a bad preseason so far, 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh says Blaine Gabbert is his second-string quarterback right now.
“Blaine is that guy right now,” Harbaugh said, per the Sacramento Bee.
It sounds like Harbaugh believes they’ve improved as a team which should help Gabbert.
“I don’t judge it off just those,” Harbaugh said of the bleak statistics his quarterbacks have accumulated. “I’ve been pretty clear what I thought we needed to get better as, as a unit. Team-oriented offense that has precision and plays wells together, all 11, and that’s what we’re going to be striving for.
“And we’ve had a good week,” he said. “Feel like we made progress. Hopefully, that progress shows up on Sunday.”
