Found November 20, 2012 on Ride The Pine:

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.


49ers' Kaepernick gets big assist from Aldon Smith

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...

Niners blast Bears to turn showdown into rout

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.

49ers QB Alex Smith out vs. Bears

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Alex Smith has been declared out for Monday night's game against Chicago with a concussion. 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...

Colin’s Kaeper Story: The Curious Case Of The Stolen QB Job

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...

Stash on speculation: grab Colin Kaepernick off your waiver wire and cross your fingers

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...
