CBS sideline reporter Jay Feely said that after speaking to 49ers chief operating officer Al Guido, he got the sense HC Jim Tomsula’s job is secure, despite a disappointing year one.
“I had a chance to talk to Al Guido, the COO for the 49ers beforehand,” Feely said during the broadcast, via CSN Bay Area. “They knew what they were getting into when they had all the defections. [He] said they underestimated a little bit the impact that it had in the locker room, specifically the lack of leadership, . . . But I think they’re confident with Jim Tomsula going forward.”
Bills HC Rex Ryan said that “drastic changes” could be coming to the Bills next week following a disappointing loss to the Redskins.
“If we don’t get better, the reality of it is this: This is professional,” Ryan said, via Syracuse.com. “This is the National Football League, and unless we get a heck of a lot better, there’s going to be changes. That’s what I told them: There’s going to be drastic changes.”
Browns QB Johnny Manziel said he’s hoping for some stability when it comes to the team’s receiving corps and coaching staff next year.
“The [Seahawks] have been doing this for awhile at a really high level,” Manziel said, via Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “I think this is the best that he’s [Russell Wilson’s] played probably throughout his career, so I don’t know if I can really picture that [kind of stability] moving forward. We’ll see what happens. I don’t think anybody really knows. I want these guys to be here next year.
“I want to have these receivers and the people that we have on this roster on the staff so we can go through the spring and not have to learn what this call is and this play and be able to go through a spring and have some of the continuity like. So it definitely would be a luxury for sure.”
Falcons first-round DE Vic Beasley said he has been playing through a torn labrum for the entire season.
“I’ve played with a torn labrum the whole season,” Beasley said, via the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “It was just one of those moments. I’ve played well with it throughout the season and I played with it in college.”
