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 donât think there was ever a question there. I think itâs just a lot of gobble gobble turkey. Just gobble, gobble, gobble turkey from jive turkey gobblers âŚ that paints a pretty good picture. Heâs a very confident guy.

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.

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.
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 wonât play in Sundayâs game against the Rams.
