Clearly, the 49ers have found something in changing quarterback at 6-2-1 on the season. With Colin Kaepernick at the helm, they are now 2-0 and now among the favorites to win the Super Bowl. However, not everyone agrees. Vernon Davis told reporters this after Sunday’s gritty win over the Saints on the road. “It’s difficult, [...]

BEST OF MAXIM
AROUND THE WEB
Even though Colin Kaepernick led the 49ers to a win over the Saints, tight end Vernon Davis nevertheless voiced his support for benched starter Alex Smith.
San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh has yet to commit to either Colin Kaepernick or Alex Smith as the team's starting quarterback. Tight end Vernon Davis thinks Alex Smith should be the one under center.
"It's difficult, but I think Alex is still the man," Davis said after Kaepernick led the 49ers to a 31-21 victory over the New Orleans Saints. "In my...
Thanks to @hansrasmussen for watching ESPN closely for this solid grammatical error. Actually, “unbeated” does work in that graphic. Kaepernick is 2-0 and unbeated. He’s also non-defeated. Look at the new 49ers QB’s remaining five games; looks like 4-1 or 3-2 at worst. Mr. Unbeated should be just fine.

The quarterback controversy by the bay looks like it will continue to drag on for the remainder of the 2012 NFL season, but it increasingly looks like second-year signal-caller Colin Kaepernick has the inside track on the job. On Wednesday, 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh named Kaepernick the starter for San Francisco’s Sunday matchup with the St. Louis Rams.
While Harbaugh hasn’t...
San Francisco 409ers head coach Jim Harbaugh has announced that Colin Kaepernick will be their starting quarterback going forward.
Jim Harbaugh announces 49ers starting QB: Kaepernick.

From the begining I’ve believe Kaepernick gives the 49ers the best chance to win, so I believe this is the best move for them.

According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter (via Evan Silva), there are people around the NFL that believe the San Francisco 49ers will stick with Colin Kaepernick as their starting quarterback and not go back to Alex Smith.
Kaepernick was on a conference call yesterday with the St. Louis media. That could be a sign that he’ll be starting this week.
I really believe Kaepernick is more...
San Francisco QB Colin Kaepernick beat Drew Brees and the Saints in his first NFL start Sunday. Kaepernick finished 16-of-25 for 231 yards with two touchdowns.Fantasy Spin:Kaepernick ran in a score in the first quarter and threw a touchdown to Frank Gore in the third. He was also picked off once but cemented his status as the team's starting quarterback. The 49ers will rematch...
With Colin Kaepernick again effectively leading the offense and a defense that got downright offensive on its own, the 49ers were simply too much for a hot New Orleans team on Sunday afternoon, taking control after halftime on the way to a convincing 31-21 victory over the Saints at the Superdome.
In the NFL it’s often said that success is contagious. Once a franchise taps into a winning formula, it’s used until the well runs dry. This is the case for the San Francisco 49ers and head coach Jim Harbaugh in 2012.
As everyone knows quarterback Alex Smith has seemingly been replaced as the Niners starting signal caller by the more elusive Colin Kaepernick. In doing so...
Dashon Goldson turned Marques Colston upside down just as the receiver leaped for a pass over the middle.
As Colston landed on his head and lay motionless for several seconds, safety Donte Whitner snagged the deflected pass on New Orleans 42 and weaved his way past Drew Brees and Co., all the way to the end zone.
That was but one of the big plays turned in by a San Francisco defense...
NOT VERY SAINTLY
In what surely will result in a hefty fine from the league, Saints DT Brodrick Bunkley did his best Ndamukong Suh impersonation by kicking 49ers OL Alex Boone in the head. He was promptly ejected from game. Via Doug Farrar of Yahoo Sports:With 1:13 left in San Francisco's eventual 31-21 win, the 49ers were set up to kick a 33-yard field goal, but the attempt was blocked by...
This week's Straight Outta Stockton could easily be renamed Straight Outta Aikman as the lead NFL on Fox analyst had a rough time during yesterday's Saints-49ers game. While a few of those are noted below, I have to pay tribute to the work Aikman is doing to the English language. Multiple times during Sunday's telecast, Aikman said "I don't disagree"...
