49ers running back Frank Gore delivered a big-time block Bears linebacker Lance Briggs. The block took Briggs completely off his feet and sent him flying to the ground, landing on his back. The block was so crushing that I’ve developed a new term “crush-block.” Used in a sentence: Frank Gore just crush-blocked the crap out of Lance Briggs. The post Frank Gore Crushed-Blocked Lance Briggs appeared first on Ride The Pine.

ESPN first reported Smith had not been cleared to play despite practicing during the week, however, he wore a non-contact jersey each day. Colin Kaepernick will start in Smith's absence.

The title and quote are both hilarious and insightful. Jay Cutler missed the Chicago Bears getting massacred by the San Francisco 49ers on Monday night because of a concussion.
Veteran backup Jason Campbell got the start instead and suffered a brutal beating at the hands of 49ers defenders. Campbell went 14-of-22 for 107 yards, a touchdown and two interceptions in the loss, but...
Aldon Smith's high-flying defense gave Colin Kaepernick all kinds of extra chances in his first career NFL start.
And the Kaepernick looked little like a backup in delivering on nearly every one of those opportunities under the lights on football's big stage.
The strong-armed Kaepernick passed for 243 yards and two touchdowns in place of the injured Alex Smith, Aldon Smith...
A concussion will keep quarterback Alex Smith out of Monday night's Chicago Bears-San Francisco 49ers game. 2011 second round pick Colin Kaepernick will start for the 49ers.
Running backs Brandon Jacobs will not play, nor will wide receiver A.J. Jenkins and running back LaMichael James, the team's top two picks in the 2012 NFL Draft.

ESPN’s Chris Mortensen reports that his sources have informed him that 49ers QB Alex Smith will not play in Monday night’s game against the Chicago Bears after he was unable to get clearance from neurologist following the concussion that he suffered last week.

Team medical director Dr. Dan Garza evaluated Smith, who was hurt eight days ago against St. Louis.
The 49ers will start second-year quarterback Colin Kaepernick, who replaced Smith in the 24-24 tie with the Rams last week.
Chicago also is without starting...
As Alex Smith stood on the sideline with a concussion, San Francisco's potential quarterback of the future went to work - and fast. Strong-armed fill-in Colin Kaepernick made all the right throws, looking every bit a capable NFL No. 1 as the 49ers whipped the Chicago Bears 32-7 in a Monday night NFC showdown at Candlestick Park that quickly turned into a lopsided rout for the home team.
Typically here is where I say ‘Don’t Buy The Hype’. You all know that who read here. Heck, read yesterday’s post about Justin Blackmon and realize I’m more Negative Nelly than Positive Peggy most times after a big game. But tonight’s game was different in my eyes. Though it’s true Alex Smith has had good moments over the last year and a half in San Fransisco...
According to rotoworld there are indications that Colin Kaepernick will get the start this week. In what is becoming a very 49ers heavy early week I’m writing to tell you the obvious: get this guy on your roster. It became clear during Jim Harbaugh’s press conference following San Francisco’s victory over Chicago (and during the game, more importantly) that Smith may not be...
Coach Jim Harbaugh gives his takes on the game after the 49ers’ 32-7 rout of the Chicago Bears on Monday night, along with his comments on the team’s developing situation at quarterback. After the first start of his NFL career, Colin Kaepernick also gives his takes on the game and where things stand with him going forward at the quarterback position.
Jim Harbaugh is perfectly content to keep the media guessing about who will start at quarterback Sunday against the New Orleans Saints.
The San Francisco 49ers coach told reporters that both Alex Smith and Colin Kaepernick can win games -- a very desirable problem, according to Harbaugh, for the coaching staff.
"We'll let it play out," Harbaugh said. "I wouldn...

Here are the Week 12 Bears power rankings from various sites around the web:
The Northwestern football program carries family values, established by the coaching staff. The same goes for the Chicago Bears organization, founded by the Halas family. Such similar values have helped make three former Wildcats very successful with the Bears organization.
The Chicago Bears thought they would be more competitive in their Monday night loss to the San Francisco 49ers but back quarterback Colin Kaepernick torched the Bears for 243 yards and 2 TDs.
John Mullin of CSN Chicago reports one veteran leaving Candlestick Park called it "a wakeup call."
Thats a different team than Ive been watching. When asked which one,...
