Stories from Grant Cohn

Coach Chip Kelly said it's a matter of his backup QB's playing weight, as if he were a sumo wrestler.
Seattle QB Russell Wilson is undefeated against the 49ers, but that streak could end this weekend.
When it comes to moving the ball, the Niners’ offense under Chip Kelly averaged 4.4 yards per play through two games — second-lowest in the NFL.
The Niners were one of the worst defenses in the league on the road last season and get a trip to Carolina in Week 2.
The center of attention after Monday’s win was Colin Kaepernick, the backup quarterback who didn’t throw a single pass.
The Rams, like the Niners, have a questionable passing attack, meaning neither team should score much.
Since 2013, 49ers general manager Trent Baalke has drafted seven players with torn ACLs — far more than any other general manager.
Blaine Gabbert will be the starting quarterback — for now — and Colin Kaepernick’s ability to take the No. 1 job could decide his future in SF.
It’s easy to understand why Chip Kelly would want Colin Kaepernick as the backup. The alternative is Jeff Driskel, a rookie sixth-round pick.
In the aftermath of Friday’s exhibition loss to the Packers, the new coach looked like he had just seen the Angel of Death.
