The San Francisco 49ers lost their fourth game of the season last night when the Arizona Cardinals defeated them 33-21 at Levi's Stadium, and there has now been even more calls for a change at quarterback.

Blaine Gabbert finished off the night with 18 passes completed from 31 attempts for 162 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions. Since the beginning of the season, fans and critics have questioned Chip Kelly's decision to start him under center, rather than Colin Kaepernick who looks more fitted to the head coach's offensive system.

Now, even more fans are calling for the change, and they made their voices heard during the game on Thursday night.

During the 49ers first drive of the second half, they were unable to score so they had to punt the ball away, resulting in fans chanting “We want Kaep” as they went 21-7 down in the ball game.

So how did Gabbert respond? The next time San Francisco got the ball back, he took the ball 82 yards down the field for a touchdown. That's certainly one way for him to silence his critics and the fans that doubt him.

However, the 1-4 record the 49ers have after five games speaks for itself, Kelly really needs to evaluate if Gabbert is the right man under center moving forward, or if the team needs to take a chance and insert Kaepernick into the game.

Kelly has said he will consider changes, so we'll have to wait and see if he decides to adjust things for their next game against the Buffalo Bills.
