What They're Saying: San Francisco 49ers

Find out what San Francisco 49ers coaches and players are saying about their upcoming game against the New England Patriots.

On the challenge of playing the Patriots...
"You're going against one of the best quarterbacks to ever play the game in Tom Brady, a really good set of receivers, two outstanding tight ends. They can run the football. They're very balanced in terms of how they can attack you from an offensive standpoint and then Bill's (Belichick) defenses are always going to be well-coached and solid."
- 49ers Head Coach Chip Kelly


On the game...
"We have seven opportunities to win football games and that's where our focus is starting this week with the Patriots and we have to do everything we can this week to go out and get a win."
- 49ers Quarterback Colin Kaepernick

On the Patriots...
"As a competitor, you can hate them as much as you want, but at the end of the day, you have to respect them. Year in and year out, they're one of the best teams in the league, regardless of who is out there at receiver or on the defensive side of the ball."
- 49ers Safety Antoine Bethea

On the Patriots offense...
"Smart offense. They know how to expose weaknesses. It's going to be a tough fight, but we'll be ready."
-49ers Defensive Lineman Glenn Dorsey

"It's going to be another great test for our defense and for our secondary. As far as what I see, it's the same Tom Brady. He's getting the ball to his playmakers, knowing where the defense is going to be at and finding the weaknesses in the defense. We've definitely got to be on our Ps and Qs this week."
- 49ers Safety Antoine Bethea
