BEST OF MAXIM
A few weeks ago, San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick had a loyal girlfriend, who stuck by him as he was keeping the benches warm at Candlestick Park for Alex Smith .However, after becoming the starting quarterback for the team and leading them to a win, Kaepernick was put into the national spotlight and since then it appears that Kaepernick has traded his loyal girlfriend...
The San Francisco 49ers have been darlings of the NFC since they benched started Alex Smith in favor of second-year passer Colin Kaepernick. Despite a loss to St Louis, Kaepenick has looked strong both passing and running the ball and has inspired the 49ers' offense. And of course the defense is just as good, if not better, as last year. For a team that just barely missed going...

The 49ers improved to 9-3-1 and still keep distance ahead of Seattle and the No.2 seed. However if the offense doesn’t get together and be more consistent, it will be hard to keep that No.2 spot, let alone win the West.
Colin Kaepernick finished the day 18 of 23 for 183 and no touchdowns or interceptions. It was very Alexesque, that is until he scored a touchdown on a 50 yard run...
SAN FRANCISCO -- The San Francisco 49ers were clinging to a 20-13 lead late in the fourth quarter Sunday against Miami when they called a read-option run, a play quarterback Colin Kaepernick could run in his sleep. Kaepernick, who rushed for 4,112 yards and 59 touchdowns in college for Nevada, faked a handoff on third-and-five to running back Frank Gore, pulled the ball back and...
Game time: Sunday at 4:05 p.m. ET
Many have wondered what it would take for San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh to give the starting quarterback job back to Alex Smith.
Apparently a tough loss isn't it - yet.
Colin Kaepernick will make his fourth straight start Sunday as the 49ers host the Miami Dolphins, whose playoff hopes have dimmed while dropping four of five...
Lead writer Nick St. Denis and AFC East Daily contributors Dan Begnoche and Sean Donovan pick the Miami Dolphins' road battle with the NFC's San Francisco 49ers. Nick's take: Most of the talk surrounding anything 49ers involves quarterback Colin Kaepernick, but San Francisco has a lot going on defensively, too. Defensive end Aldon Smith leads the NFL with 17.5 sacks,...
For the second week in a row, the Miami Dolphins hung tough with one of the best teams in the NFL. And for the second week in a row, they couldn't make enough plays in the fourth quarter. The Dolphins spent more than three quarters of time within a touchdown or less of the San Francisco 49ers but couldn't get it done down the stretch in a 27-13 loss that all but mathematically...
Coming off a painful loss to a division rival, the Miami Dolphins (5-7) must travel cross-country to face one of the NFL's most complete teams in the San Francisco 49ers (8-3-1). Ryan Tannehill leads a struggling offense on the road against the league's No. 2 ranked defense, all while being without his best offensive lineman, Jake Long. Miami's defense faces the multidimensional...

''Couple more, baby! Couple more, baby!'' Gore hollered.
Gore is taking charge on the 49ers offense, with Smith wreaking havoc on opposing quarterbacks for the defense.
Gore ran for a 1-yard touchdown and reached...
Miami Dolphins (5-7) at San Francisco 49ers (8-3)
The 49ers lost to the Rams last week in St. Louis, which has gotten a lot of Alex Smith supporters saying “I told you so,” questioning Jim Harbaugh’s decision to bench Alex Smith for Colin Kaepernick. These people seem to be forgetting that Smith was losing to those same Rams at home when he got hurt and that he also lost to...
The San Francisco 49ers used their smashmouth style of play, capitalized on Miami mistakes, and treated their fans to a 27-13 home victory in Candlestick Park. It was a close game through most of the first half, but in the second half the Niners pulled away. The dagger was a Colin Kaepernick 50 yard scamper up the sideline on a read option play that had the Dolphins completely fooled...
