(On the emotional rollercoaster of the second half)

“You said it perfect, it was a rollercoaster. It was crazy. I feel like anything that could have happened in the game happened. It just shows the grit and the determination of this team. Was it perfect? Heck no, it wasn’t perfect at all, but the defense played incredible and the offense, I guess you could say we delivered when we had to. Obviously, it was great to get the guys back in (RB) Raheem (Mostert), (WR) Deebo (Samuel) and (RB) Jeff (Wilson Jr.). We found a way to pull it out and that’s all that matters, a W the win column.”

(On how he kept his confidence in the final drive)

“Definitely faced adversity during the game. I would have liked to make a couple more plays and take advantage of some opportunities. The biggest thing on the last drive, I was just trying to stay in the moment. That’s really kind of what I’ve been telling myself – just stay in the moment. I mean, you’re really only as good as your next play. So just keeping that mentality and not worrying about what happened previously, just play the next play and it led to success.”

(On if the team addressed the uncertainty surrounding regulations from Santa Clara County and how they blocked that out for tonight’s game)

“We did discuss it. I found out, I guess, just like everybody else. My friend texted me saying, ‘Dang 49ers, huh?’ (laughs). I didn’t know what he was talking about then he sent me a screenshot (inaudible)…

just to each other, you know, focus on the job at hand. Focus on what matters most and really (inaudible) … the rules, do what we’re supposed to do and perform. So, we’ll see what the future holds. I mean it’s tough for us, but it’s more tough for the families. So, we’ll see what happens. we’re going to adjust and be ready for whatever.”
