As our Gregg Rosenthal informed us, that's some kind of record.
"Colin is our quarterback," Tomsula said, via the team's web site. "I think the world of that guy. ... He's a competitive guy. Colin's a guy that has a tendency to put it all on his back."
To be clear, we're not disagreeing with Tomsula, who, if nothing else, has completely endeared himself to the players that chose to remain with him in San Francisco. It would be far, far too early to bench the franchise quarterback in search of some new life.
That being said, the walls are closing in on this team very quickly. There's no true respite for the 49ers until a Dec. 6 matchup against the Bears. In between, games against Green Bay, at the Giants, vs. Baltimore, Seattle, St. Louis and Atlanta all pose unique problems for a team that can't seem to find an identity.
