Jim Harbaugh announces 49ers starting QB: Kaepernick. — Matt Maiocco (@MaioccoCSN) November 28, 2012 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.   var _CI = _CI || {}; (function() { var script = document.createElement('script'); ref = document.getElementsByTagName('script')[0]; _CI.counter = (_CI.counter) ? _CI.counter + 1 : 1; document.write(''); script.type = 'text/javascript'; script.src = 'http://widget.crowdignite.com/widgets/27484?_ci_wid=_CI_widget_'+_CI.counter; script.async = true; ref.parentNode.insertBefore(script, ref); })(); sr_adspace_id = 1000005525107; sr_adspace_width = 300; sr_adspace_height = 250; sr_ad_new_window = true; sr_adspace_type = "graphic";

Columnist criticizes Kaepernick for tats

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.”

Colin Kaepernick’s parents defend him against criticism over tattoos

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...

Colin Kaepernick “Unbeated” In 1st 2 Career Starts, According To ESPN

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. In random arrest news, BC reader @jordanacoffey wants you to know that...

Signs point to Colin Kaepernick remaining the 49ers’ starter

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...

Harbaugh, 49ers juggling more than just quarterbacks?

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...

On RG3 and Kaepernick: It’s 2012 And We’re Talking About TATTOOS AND BRAIDS

  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...

Writer defends tattoo criticism of QB

A columnist is under fire after criticizing San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick over his tattoos.

Smith part of 49ers QB controversy long before Kaepernick

Just as he was playing possibly the of his eight-year career, 49ers quarterback Alex Smith saw it all unravel in the last three weeks after a concussion sidelined him on Nov. 11 and second-year pro Colin Kaepernick stepped in. Now healthy, Smith finally spoke up Thursday, a day after head coach Jim Harbaugh named Kaepernick the starter for Sunday's game in St. Louis and, it...

After another big win, 49ers QBs still in limbo

Jim Harbaugh has watched each of his two quarterbacks lead the San Francisco 49ers to big wins in hostile, road environments - Alex Smith in the season opener at Green Bay's Lambeau Field back in September, and Colin Kaepernick on Sunday at the New Orleans Superdome. Which one gets the ball on Sunday at St. Louis? Harbaugh is still mum on that, though he did say Monday he will...

San Francisco 49ers will announce starting quarterback this week

Last week, San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh declined to announce the team’s starting quarterback prior to their game against the New Orleans Saints. Harbaugh cited that he didn’t want to give the other team a competitive edge in game planning. This week however, Harbaugh has had a change of heart and has told reporters that he will formally announce the Niners starting...

Straight Outta Stockton - Week 12

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"...

49ers’ Vernon Davis: ‘Alex Is Still the Man’

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, [...] [[ This is a content summary only. Visit my...

Harbaugh playing games with truth

Dear Jason: Can you believe there were actually people who thought I was dumb enough to fight you? My nickname is Big Diesel, not Big Dummy. Sincerely, Shaq Your NFL Truths for Week 13: 10. It's obvious Jim Harbaugh has a guilty conscience about benching Alex Smith. That's the only explanation for Harbaugh's bizarre statement about Smith still being San Francisco...
