6:53 pm
players. we know how to play the game. we got basketball masters on this team that know exactly what to do in certain situations. i think demarcus is one those basketball geniuses that kind of knows exactly who he is and what he needs to do to be effective. >> my drive is -- the only increased. i'm seriously like a mad man right now. i mean on paper it looks great. of course we have to go in and put the work in, but the potential is scary for this team. it is on us to, you know, bring that potential out. >> honestly, i don't even feel expectations anymore. because our expectations as far as ourselves are so high that i don't really feel expectations from anyone. >> jimmy garoppolo is indeed out for the season. mri confirmed what the 49ers feared, their starting quarterback suffered a torn acl during sunday's loss to the chiefs. cj beckford is the starter and

just with the team's recent lack of success, they're really starting to shake things up. >> a lot of injuries. >> exactly. >> if oakland -- if the raiders only had to play one half of football, first half -- >> they would be 3-0. >> that's right. i'm telling you. >> unfortunately, it doesn't work that way. >> thanks, mindi. >> join us tonight on kofi and around the world, sailing disaster for one man. how he survived after his boat capsized in 46-foot high seas at 9:00. a high school football coach is suspended and the team forfeits its game. how students are rallying behind him. >> look for breaking news any time on the "abc 7 news" app. >> i'm eric thomas. for the entire "abc 7 news" team, good night as we leave you with the sun getting ready to go bye bye for the evening.
