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, Harbaugh opted for the mysterious and unknown potential of Kaepernick rather than playing it safe with the predictable Smith. Smith led the 49ers to the NFC Championship last season but the team came up short, falling to the eventual Super Champion New York Giants. Despite Smith being on pace for his best season ever prior to suffering a concussion in Week 10, it has become quite apparent that head coach Jim Harbaugh believes the 49ers have gone as far as they can behind the former No.1 draft pick.… Read more

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 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...
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.

The quarterback controversy by the bay looks like it will continue to drag on for the remainder of the 2012 NFL season, but it increasingly looks like second-year signal-caller Colin Kaepernick has the inside track on the job. On Wednesday, 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh named Kaepernick the starter for San Francisco’s Sunday matchup with the St. Louis Rams.

San Francisco 409ers head coach Jim Harbaugh has announced that Colin Kaepernick will be their starting quarterback going forward.
Jim Harbaugh announces 49ers starting QB: Kaepernick.

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.

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...
The reaction to Alex Smith losing the San Francisco 49ers starting gig to Colin Kaepernick has been strange to say the least. Smith has received an outpouring of sympathy and support from fans and media who apparently just started watching Smith play in 2011.
Colin Kaepernick‘s arms are full of tattoos. This, apparently, ensures that the San Francisco 49ers quarterback will never, ever be a legitimate hero for the NFL or the 49ers even. It also means that the golden age of good old boys under center in the National Football League is just about over.
That’s what it sounds like AOL Fanhouse columnist David Whitley thinks, at least...
Coach Jim Harbaugh announced that QB Colin Kaepernick will be the starter for the 49ers in Week 13.Fantasy Spin:Kaepernick wasn't nearly as good against New Orleans as he was against the Chicago. As opponents see more of Kaepernick they will likely develop a better defensive game plan. The San Francisco quarterback situation will continue to be a week-to-week proposition.
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...

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...
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 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"...
