In the midst of several great games going on in the NFL on Sunday, Adam Schefter reported some interesting and stunning news.
According to Schefter, the San Francisco 49ers were set to trade the then unknown Colin Kaepernick to the Eagles for a second-round pick prior to the 2012 draft.
In weeks leading up to 2012 draft, Eagles came close to trading 2nd-rd pick to 49ers for Colin Kaepernick….

Alex Smith had a strong year in 2011, and the 49ers reportedly were willing to move Kaepernick, believing Alex had taken that next step.
Schefter says the Eagles unwisely backed out because they believed they could get Russell Wilson out of Wisconsin. According to the report, the Eagles loved Wilson as a player, and “they geared their whole draft around him.”
The Seahawks were a bit wiser, picking Wilson 13 spots before the Eagles in round three.
If that report is accurate, then why did Andy Reid not use a second round pick on Wilson?

What a difference a few years makes. 3 years ago, the NFC West was the worst division in NFL history with no team finishing better than 500. It was saved a little bit by Seattle’s improbable victory over the New Orleans Saints, which was the game where Marshawn Lynch’s fame started. Remember his 67 yard touchdown run. If not, look it up. Flash forward three years where the NFC...
So much for the San Francisco 49ers offense the nearly totaled 500 yards last week againts the Packers. That same offense was non-existant againts a superb Seattle defense in a 29-3 defeat on Sundat night. Both star quarterbacks struggled. Russell Wilson threw for 142 yards and a touchdown but also threw an interception and was sacked four times. Colin Kaepernick who set...
After losing last night’s game to the Seahawks, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick shaved his eyebrow to live up to his end of a wager they made.

The post Colin Kaepernick shaves his eyebrow (Video) appeared first on Pro Football Zone.
Spoiler alert: Colin Kaepernick (or at least his Madden NFL 25 avatar) will be losing an eyebrow as per the bet in the Madden TV commercial since Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks dominated the San Francisco 49ers Sunday evening, 29-3.
After last week’s QB performance, I gave Wilson a ‘B’ grade, with the expectation that he and the Hawks could and would improve. Kaepernick...
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter via ProFootballTalk.com, the Philadelphia Eagles almost acquired Colin Kaepernick in a trade with the 49ers that would have sent a second round pick to San Francisco prior to the 2012 NFL draft.
Because Alex Smith had a strong year in 2011, after Kaepernick had been drafted, the 49ers reportedly were willing to move him. Schefter says the Eagles...

Colin Kaepernick has been labeled the NFL's next Superman. But Seattle is his Kryptonite. His 49ers are now 0-2 against the Seahawks after he turned in the worst passing performance of 2013 Sunday night (20.1 passer rating).
Russell Wilson and Colin Kaepernick wagered an eyebrow on Sunday night’s showdown in Seattle. After the Seahawks’ 29-3 win, it was time for Kaep to pay up.
The bet, a joke that originated from a Madden 25 commercial, suggested that the loser of the NFC West rivals matchup in Week 2 would have to shave off an eyebrow after the game. Well, if you believe everything you see, Kaepernick...
Green Bay linebacker Clay Matthews drew a $15,000 fine for his hit on 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in Week 1. SOURCE: Rob Demovsky, ESPNFantasy Spin:Kaepernick was running out of bounds when Matthews delivered the hit. According to Matthews, it's the first time he's been fined for an on-field incident since 2010. Matthews and the Packers match up against the defending...
The San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks love to hit and go after the ball. These are two tough teams. In fact, the whole NFC West was built off toughness. Each team needed to compete with what the other was building. This is the toughest division in the NFL.
This game, just like any other NFC West showdown, will be about toughness, physical & mental. There has been...
NFL Network host Rich Eisen sent what had to be my favorite tweet of the weekend. Eisen, like ESPN NFL reporter Adam Schefter, is a proud Michigan alumnus. The Wolverines struggled to beat Akron over the weekend, and needed some help from a running clock to pull out the victory. Eisen and Schefter usually have […]
The 49ers combined to score just 26 points in their two games against the Seahawks last year. Coming into their second meeting when Seattle blew out San Francisco by 29 points, Colin Kaepernick had just six starts under him. With more experience and different receivers, how can the 49ers find ways to exploit the Seahawks’ elite defense?
In SNF's evisceration / division home game held serve with authority where Seattle curb-stomped San Francisco, there was an utterly lovely moment for those of us who had Seattle plus the points. Seahawks QB Russell Wilson threw a nice ball out into the flat against a goal line blitz, finding RB Marshawn Lynch at the Niner 2-yard line. With no defensive player within 50 feet of...
