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.
''I'll let you know if there's a change, but right now I think it'll be the same as it was this week,'' Harbaugh said. ''I'm proud of Kap, proud of the way he played. He handled himself well, gave our team a chance to win.''
Harbaugh took the heat for Kaepernick's errant pitch in the fourth quarter that led to a 2-yard fumble return for touchdown by Janoris Jenkins. Combined with a 2-point conversion, that tied it at 10 with 3:04 to play. Harbaugh said it was ''the wrong play to call at the time.''
''I would have loved to have that one back, but don't blame the players on that one,'' Harbaugh added.
