Monday’s Locker Room Talk: Jan. 2

Posted by Taylor Price on January 2, 2012 – 2:35 PM

In the 49ers regular season finale Sunday in St. Louis, running back Kendall Hunter totaled a career-high 76 rushing yards among many contributions from the team’s rookie class.

It was the latest of many strong performances by San Francisco’s NFL newcomers which now include 12 rookies on the 53-man roster.

Jim Harbaugh has been pleased with the progress made by his rookies so far, especially with the young players not having a typical offseason to prepare for the rigors of professional football.

“I really thought it be would be difficult for all rookies in football,” Harbaugh said on Monday, one day after his team finished the regular season 13-3. “With no offseason, no minicamps, the idea in my head was they were in a real disadvantage going into training camp. Veteran players who knew the routine, knew systems, would be way ahead like they were in a normal training camp. I thought it would take the rookies longer to show they were NFL-caliber players.”

That hasn’t been the case for the 49ers.

Besides Hunter and fullback Bruce Miller being noticeable contributors for the offensive side of the ball, Aldon Smith led all rookies with 14.0 sacks and Chris Culliver served as the team’s third cornerback for most of the season.

“We were going to be diligent to give them extra time, but in the case of our rookies, the ones who’ve been contributing all year and have been around this football team, they showed early they belong,” Harbaugh said. “They’ve adapted really well to these uncharted waters. And to be able to perform the way they have, the body of work they’ve put together this season in so many cases is outstanding.”

Harbaugh credited general manager Trent Baalke and the 49ers scouting staff for bringing in so many talented players for his coaches to work with.

“A lot of credit to Trent, to our scouts, to our coaches and our organization, that whole arm of finding players, finding talent,” Harbaugh said. “I think it’s been really exceptional this year.”

With so many young contributors on top of a talented group of free agent additions, Harbaugh and Baalke should be up for Coach and Executive of the Year Award consideration. At least that’s the assessment of many players inside the 49ers locker room.

“I’ve seen GMs take over and clean house,” shared veteran tight end Justin Peelle, who signed with the 49ers in the midst of training camp. “I think Trent was smart enough to realize the pieces were in place, he just needed to change a few things.”

Baalke and the 49ers personnel department brought in many high-character players, passionate about the game.

“You have a guy like Bruce Miller coming in here and he’s an alternate for the Pro Bowl,” Peelle added. “The guy played defensive end last year. That’s a really good job and that’s a testament to what they’ve done.”

Linebacker Blake Costanzo was even more candid in discussing the merits of Baalke and Harbaugh winning the awards.

Costanzo, an effervescent special teams ace, believes the 49ers decision-makers don’t want the credit.

“I feel like our team has made the most significant jump, but I know Coach Harbaugh wouldn’t want it, he’s kind of low key,” Costanzo explained. “But they’re definitely well deserving of it for sure.”

Notes and Quotes

Harbaugh said the 49ers will spend the playoff week scouting the teams they could potentially play in the Divisional round of the playoffs (Atlanta, New Orleans and New York Giants). The 49ers will have a workout on Wednesday and will resume practice on Thursday.

Harbaugh wasn’t upset with how the 49ers lost a three-touchdown lead against the Rams. “Things happen fast in this game,” he said. Still, the 49ers coach was content in seeing his team earn the NFC’s No. 2 seed. “The body of work is there,” said Harbaugh before alluding to the different ways in which his team found ways to win.

The availability of tight end Delanie Walker (jaw) will not be known until Wednesday. His replacement, Peele, was saddened to see a close friend get hurt, but made sure to help the 49ers win the past two weeks in Seattle and in St. Louis. “It was fun to be out there the last couple weeks, but obviously not in the condition I wanted to,” Peele said. “I was glad I was able to contribute.”

The 49ers will use the bye week to rest up before a the first playoff game to be played at Candlestick Park since their 39-38 win over the New York Giants on Jan. 5, 2003. Players, however, don’t necessarily want to wait around until Jan. 14 to play. “I know a lot of us want the bye, but we don’t want to wait around,” Costanzo said. “We want to go play this Sunday and just get on that field. We’re so hungry, we can’t wait to get on the field and play. That’s what this team does, we play football. We don’t care about all the other stuff.”

Lastly, Harbaugh was asked about Alex Smith’s future with the 49ers. With the starting quarterback finishing out the one-year deal he signed in the offseason, Harbaugh previously said he’d like to have Smith come back to the 49ers. On Monday, Harbaugh reiterated his stance. “I told Alex, ‘Hey, we want you to come back here next year.’ He’s focused on the season and that’s where his mindset wants to be. I totally respect that. We’ll address it when the seasons over.”

    Oh btw, we won’t be scoring 40+ to go to the superbowl and take it. We aren’t the Saints or the Packers. We’re the 49ers, the 49ers that makes you play the trenches and forces the opponent to ask themselves if they’re willing to go through helll and do they even know if they’ll make it back? What people don’t realize is that when you play the 49ers you play within OUR terms. ” None of you seem to understand, I’m not stuck in here with you, you’re stuck in here with me! ” – Rorschach

    everything seems go be in order here. The players are hungry to play, the coaches are making the right moves, the front office reflect what the coaches and players/team needs.

    True we need help on the WR position, or do we? Is Joe Hasting the right man to step up to cover that position, is Swain ready to fill such a role? I guess we shall see. Props to Crabtree and V. Davis. They stepped up their game and caught footballs at critical times in the game…Alex Smith is ready, I hope Gore will be one hundred percent when we play our first game, even if he isn’t, we have a little hard nose runner in Kendall Hunter, and Dixon. I hope Williams will be healthy, I hope Ginn Jr. will be as well. I know Willis will be ready to play in twelve days.

    Gooooooo Niners

    congratulations to Jim Harbaugh, Trent Baalke and the whole staff, from the top, Jed York down to the players. Your disease in contagious and Alex Smith caught it; it’s called “winning” and AS is now running for first downs AND touchdowns . . . I confess I never thought I would see THAT ! Once you get that “winning” fever, you’re NOW a 49er . . . YEAH MAN ! And congratulations to the 49er faithfuls ! ps I like winning also, let’s go do it in February !!!

    I would like to see Alex Smith signed to a TEN year contract for one very important reason. Maybe then we could finally get rid of these know-it-all, conceited, arrogant fools that have been masquerading as 49er fans.

    Thank heaven the coaching staff is more intelligent than the moronic Alex Smith haters. Considering our schedule next year, we need a QB that doesn’t turn the ball over and has proven to comeback on the road with 4 road comebacks in the 4th quarter this year already. The people who don’t like Alex Smith may bellow that they have a right to their *own* opinion, but it doesn’t mean they own the *right* opinion. NFL Head Coach Jim Harbaugh (who’s already set records this year) says what’s right. And the haters are just stuck with it. Makes me smile :) .

    Alex Thumbs up or Thumbs down,..that is the question. Right now we are no 2 NFC seed, and on Winner status. We win the next 3 games Alex is a hero. We loose our first, second or third game and this blog will be full of Alex haters. For me I am a Niner fan before and after Alex. I tolerate him kinda like a particular inlaw of mine. I hope Alex does great under playoff pressure for the sake of all Niner fans/players. Fasten your seat belts guys/gals,….Go Niners

    wow so nice to see that the huge flaws that comsume Alex are not just labeled to one person or opinion. Fact if brady or any other QB you want to come up with had the same flaws as Alex they too would be busts ….and yes it seems they are going to resign him oh well. Still to make more excuses as to why he cant throw more than 1 TD a game per season is well ..the answer right there…and i dont see anyone else knocking down his door to come play for them. And it is funny that when you give an opinion on alex …all the alex lovers either make it about the team or make excuses

    it is basically this the probowl QB’s are the ones who with 3 turn overs by their defense they net 2 td’s and a field goal ….Alex nets maybe 2 FG’s …that my friends is why he is average at best.

    I’ve never been much of a fan of AS but when he’s on the field I root for him just like the rest of the team. I want to win and as long as we have AS then I will continue to root for him. He has had a new OC every year he has played for us so now since he has a great OC and a great Coach that was a good QB you see what he can do. Next year AS will have a full off season to work with big bad Jim and I am stoked to see how much that helps AS.

    I’ll only say this: ANYTHING CAN HAPPEN IN THE PLAYOFFS! Don’t be surprised if somehow DETROIT pulls out a win in NO. It’s not likely…but it’s POSSIBLE! And for a couple of you fans out there who prefer to NOT believe in the Niners, my QUESTION is this: Are you AFRAID of “believing” that the Niners can reach the NFC Championship?… or even the Super Bowl? Are you AFRAID of exposing your emotions too much…and that you might get hurt should they lose? Fuhgitaboutit and ENJOY THE COMPETITION…AND THE MOMENT! Its WORSE to be in DENIAL, because should the NINERS win it all, then you’ll simply be DENYING YOURSELF of the pleasure of celebrating!

    7yrs and jeromy have valid points that you are not willing to see. While potentially in the future Alex could prove to be a great QB, he still shows inconsistency and inability to deliver in critical moments and around the red zone. While it is easy to rally for AS when the team is winning, he is not a QB that I feel we can rely on at the moment.

    woa guys slow your roll and take it easy. For one thing who ever that was with the comment of Alex only threw 5 int’s well yeah if you dont throw the ball at all how many do you have. Anyways the subjuect seems to be based on the QB since the rest of the team is getting it done. Furthermore Alex goes into games thinking and looking like and playing like “just dont screw up, make completions and everyone will love me.” superbowl QB’s go into games looking to roust the defense and work the ball down the field to get a TD and toast the defense. see simple really no need for further debate.

    Imma leave it like this, Alex Smith will play the game like he is supposed to, which will be to manage the game. The play-offs are all about forcing turnovers so our defense got that covered. Our running game will control the clock and that is how you win play-off games. Just look @ the Super Bowl Ravens (great defense, average QB) so its possible. #IJS

    They said we couldn’t defeat an undefeated lions team, we did that.

    They said we couldn’t deal with Eli Manning, we did that.

    They had a ESPN special on the pregame show before we played the Steelers, on why SF had such a small margin for victory & we beat them 20-3

    I just want to hear them eat their words when we win the Superbowl.

    First really gimplesberger out there really you count that. There you go reaching for anything again. The lions took us for granted and if you recall the defense had 4 turnovers that game in the first half and netted 2 FG’s lol.that is what we are talking about the wins come from team effort not inept Alex throwing check downs all day. Now giants game I do believe after 2 3 and outs by alex the giants were running down the field scoreing and then the defense put the breaks on and won that game. Next the Alexbowl everyone seems to be screaming about is ludicrous. IF and I mean IF by any means we get by 1st round. It will be the defense that does it . With respect to second round With NO TD’s in the first half as Your Alex has done for the last 4 games I am sorry but we will be so far behind that game if it happens that yeah Alex would have strip down to a leaisure suit and hope the defense couldnt contain it’s composure so he could maybe throw 3 TD’s and win that game. And ?????? well no Im done that should be well enough to chew on

    . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . .. We all know you and seven years with alex and jeromey are the same poor poor whiner fan. You and your multiple personalities know that the defense always has to come up big in the end to come back and win. You also know that a defense has to play well enough to allow the offense to win. The team is 13 and 3. And if Alex is as bad as all your multiple personalities say, then he would have been benched and/or worse. You’re not arguing with fans on an entarwebs blog. You’re now just arguing with Jim Harbaugh decision: of whome is runner up to the league mvp as an NFL *quarterback*, “captain comeback”, westcoast offensive mastermind, and first coach in the history of the NFL to put a 6-10 team to a 13-3 team in one season. You arn’t arguing with us. You’re arguing with arguably the best coach in football right now.

    Chew on that.

  50. By matt on Jan 4, 2012 | Reply

    While you argue your way out of that, remember that said quality coach cares about this much ( || ) for what you and your many screen names have said thus far. You are clearly lost in your hate. It’s been so much for you that you’ve fractured your own personality to support your agenda, ultimately your self-determined value; which is fueled by your disdane for a qb with a rating well of 90 and great intercetion to completion ratio, excellent completion percentage to yards per completion, and drastically improving from one week to the next, and backed by an elite coach in the NFL.

    In short The man you hate is coming back. Go get help before it is too late.

    FOR ALL YOU ALEX HATERS, THEY ARE GOING TO SIGN ALEX TO A 3 YEAR DEAL, IT WILL BE REVEALED AT THE END OF THE SEASON.

    “I’ve told Alex that,” Harbaugh told reporters Monday. “I wouldn’t tell you something I wouldn’t tell Alex.

    “I told Alex, ‘Hey, we’re going to want you to come back here next year.’ He’s focused on the season, and that’s where his mindset wants to be. And I totally respect that, and we’ll talk about it and address it once the season is over. That’s the way I understand it right now.”

    Smith, 27, has thrown for 3,150 yards and 17 touchdowns with just five interceptions for the NFC West champion 49ers (13-3), who earned the No. 2 playoff seed in the NFC and a first-round bye this week.

    Here’s pointing out FACTS: See above. Harbaugh has his guy already. Who is a better position to evaluate talent Jim Harbaugh? or ‘Jeromey of the interwebzz’ who likes other men’s mouths around his gen!tal!a?

    FACTS: record for the most 4th quarter comebacks in a season as a 49ers QB is NOT Joe Montana, Steve Young, or Jeff Garcia. It’s Alex Smith. FOUR of those were on the road. Tied lowest interception number in the history of the game: Alex Smith. Very high completiion percentage with rookie receivers and zero probowl/allpro receivers roaming the field.

    These are real facts, not fantasy stats that land good points on a piece of paper. Harbaugh has the FACTS. And he has chosen Alex Smith.

    Whatever, tired of the Alex topic…On an other note, how come none of the networks give the 49ers any love? I waited to see some highlights after the Ram game and nothing? I was bummed!!! They have the #1 defense, have not made the playoffs in 8 yr, they are winning big time!! I am tired of hearing about Dallas and the Broncos…

    Hey niner fans think about this one. If Jeff fisher becomes the head coach of the Rams he can turn that team around , Look what the CARDINALS coach did when he took over and what Carrall doin with that team .IAM looking forward to the off season. but right now we win that first game, one more step to getting that 6th ring
    ps i always like to look ahead

    jeromy: what facts you talking about??? i don’t understand all this bs about facts film blah blah. you have not said one word that is backed up by facts. we are 13-3 you are 0 for as many times you have blogged. matt was right, you are a no nothing. you say you have been fan since you were 10 and have the right to your opinion, that is true, but the niner faithful also have right to our opinion. you think coach JH doesn’t know what he is doing??? 13-3 doesn’t impress you?? get a life.
    go niners
