Blaine Gabbert just spoke in the 49ers auditorium. Here are selected quotes.
Q: What is your plan for the offseason?
GABBERT: Just the usual routine. You definitely take a little breather time. You let your body heal, let your mind heal and kind of recuperate a little bit. But, I’m eager to get back into it. I feel like there’s something we can build on here. I’m definitely eager to be a part of it.
Q: Will you seek outside help as far as quarterback coaching and mechanics?
GABBERT: I trust our coaches here. Some people believe that you can get outside help, others don’t. I’m more of one to believe in that I trust my routine, my lifting and training regiment, the facilities that I work out at, and I do things specific to what we’re doing here. That’s about it.
Q: Do you have guys that you talk to about the mechanics throwing?
GABBERT: I think if you can throw a football and deliver it from Point A to Point B, that’s what it boils down to. Everybody has different mechanics. Everybody has a different throwing motion. At the end of the day if you can throw the ball on time and accurate, that’s what you have to do. So, every quarterback guru thinks they know how to throw the football one certain way, but I beg to differ when it comes to that. If you can deliver it accurately and on time, that’s what works for you.
Q: What has Colin Kaepernick’s role been the past couple of weeks?
GABBERT: The biggest thing is he’s just rehabbing right now. I’m going about my same routine with Dylan (Thompson) and Mac (McLeod Bethel-Thompson) and coach (Steve) Logan and the offensive staff. That’s the biggest thing that I’m worried about. I’m worried about being accountable to those guys and the teammates that are out there on Sunday.
