The San Francisco 49ers are coming off a tough loss to the Carolina Panthers and are looking to regain momentum. The New Orleans Saints on the other hand are riding a wave of momentum into this one having dominated the Dallas Cowboys in every aspect of the game.
“We’ve got a tough game coming up, and we’re not going to wallow in (the loss to Carolina),” 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said. “We’re going to move on to New Orleans.”
49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has been blamed for the offense’s struggles. His head coach isn’t putting the blame on him.
“The way we look at it is as a unit. Offensively, we didn’t play well enough to win the game,” Harbaugh said. “Across the board, we take accountability for that and have fingerprints on it. I’m not going to go through and dissect position by position, raking anybody over the coals. I don’t think that’s the best thing for us.”
“I think their mindset will be what it’s always been, it’s a blue-collar mindset. That involves fixing things, building things, sutures in our hands and the weapons are in our hands, our fate is in our hands.”
