Rookies A.J. Jenkins and LaMichael James have done nothing for the 49ers on the field so far this season, but that could change for the team’s two top draft picks in December. After the season-ending injuries to Kendall Hunter and Kyle Williams, Jenkins and James could be called upon to fill the voids left by those two players. Here’s what both rookies had to say this week about their situations.
BEST OF MAXIM
After likening an NFL QB to a CEO, a columnist took 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick to task for his tattoos, writing, "you don’t want your CEO to look like he just got paroled.”
I don’t think there was ever a question there. I think it’s just a lot of gobble gobble turkey. Just gobble, gobble, gobble turkey from jive turkey gobblers … that paints a pretty good picture. He’s a very confident guy.

On the same day he declined to publicly name a starting quarterback, 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh informed incumbent...
Colin Kaepernick has officially been given the chance to become the next face of the San Francisco 49ers, and so far he has answered the call. There has been little to criticize Kaepernick for in his first two NFL starts, both of which were convincing wins. While it would be difficult to criticize him for his play, one writer felt the need to bash him for something totally unrelated...
ST. LOUIS Colin Kaepernick stumbled. He also glided in the open field, threw fist pumps and showed flashes of what can be a rich future.
Kaepernick walked from the Edward Jones Dome as the reason for the San Francisco 49ers loss. He also left as someone worthy of coach Jim Harbaughs trust.
Be smart with the ball, said the second-year quarterback, after losing to the St. Louis...
There's a price to pay for those who venture across the middle of the San Francisco 49ers' defense.
Dashon Goldson and Donte Whitner are making sure of that.
The territory patrolled by the pair of hard-hitting safeties has become a danger zone this season for San Francisco opponents, several of whom have had to be helped off the field after getting leveled by one of the...

Now if you have listened to my show at all in the last two weeks on the BTR Network (http://www.blogtalkradio.com/letstalknfl), you know exactly where I am about to go. The whole benching Alex Smith this late in the season for basically a rookie is just asinine. Now I am not an Alex Smith fan by any means, but common sense is common sense...
Which way does the thumb turn for the 49ers after their 16-13 overtime loss at St. Louis on Sunday, including David Akers missing again in the clutch, a dagger through the heart of the NFC West leaders, a ridiculous pitch with victory at hand, Colin Kaepernick’s keen escapability, Dashon Goldson not thinking on his feet, classic Aldon Smith, Ted Ginn just not the same and much...
Second-year 49ers veteran Demarcus Dobbs was arrested early Friday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence and possession of marijuana, the California Highway Patrol said, and he did not travel to St. Louis with the team later in the day and won’t play in Sunday’s game against the Rams.
There's a price to pay for those who venture across the middle of the San Francisco 49ers' defense. Dashon Goldson and Donte Whitner are making sure of that, roaming the center of the field with impunity and delivering the kind of pain that’s leaving fear in their wake throughout the NFL.
Colin Kaepernick blamed himself after losing for the first time as the San Francisco 49ers' starting quarterback. It appears he will not be losing his job.
After the St. Louis Rams avoided a second tie with San Francisco with a 16-13 overtime victory on Sunday, coach Jim Harbaugh indicated he'd be sticking with Kaepernick next week at home against the Dolphins.
Only way a person believes that tattoos suddenly make this sweet faced individual look like a thug is if they’re one chromosome from having one chromosome.
So, let me guess…people learned zero, zip, nada, nothing from Allen Iverson?
Let me refresh your memory. Allen Iverson was lambasted for years for having visible tattoos and cornrows. Fastforward barely a decade after...
