Colin Kaepernick threw a touchdown pass to cap his only drive, and the San Francisco 49ers roughed up the San Diego Chargers 41-6 in the exhibition finale for both teams Thursday night.
Kaepernick faked an inside handoff and then threw a short sidearm pass to Quinton Patton, who deked rookie free agent Marcus Cromartie and completed the 43-yard scoring play.
Coach Jim Harbaugh started the first-team offense of the 49ers (3-1), while Chargers rookie coach Mike McCoy sat his first-team defense.
The Chargers (1-3) had a bad night. Backup quarterback Charlie Whitehurst was sacked four times in the first half and third-stringer Brad Sorensen threw two interceptions in the second half.
San Francisco linebacker Cam Johnson sacked Whitehurst twice and blocked a punt by Mike Scifres and recovered it in the end zone for a touchdown late in the third quarter.

Punting has remained relatively unchanged since, well, ever. 49ers punter Andy Lee may be changing that. According to sports-kings.com through yahoosports.com Lee is working on a “knuckle-punt” which would be exactly what it sounds like. A wobbly punt that would be a punting equivalent of a knuckle ball. “It’s definitely something I want to do in a game to see how it...
Listen, I know there have been a lot (and I mean A LOT) of controversial, ignorant, and just plain idiotic tweets in the handful of years that Twitter has been a social media powerhouse but, in my opinion, the one Brian Westbrook delivered yesterday takes the cake:

Looks like the 49ers quarterback carousel has finally come to a stop:
The 49ers intend to release QB Seneca Wallace and will not play him tonight, league source says.

That Kaepernick fella will stir the drink that is the Niners offense. That leaves Colt McCoy as the back-up and seventh-rounder BJ Daniels presumably as the third-string...
The San Francisco 49ers didn’t waste any time making a good impression against the San Diego Chargers in the last preseason game of the 2013 season. The final score was 41 – 6. The offense looked pretty good on the first drive. The defense was even more impressive. They were some players that made a big time push for roster spots.
Quinton Patton continued to show that he was...
Francisco 49ers’ second-year running back LaMichael James suffered a sprained
MCL during Thursday nights’ preseason finale against the San Diego Chargers,
according to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee. James has had a fairly
unspectacular preseason, leaving several question marks surrounding the
University of Oregon product and his No. 3 spot on the depth chart. With
Matt Barrows reports that a league source has informed him that the 49ers intend to release QB Seneca Wallace following their final preseason game.
Wallace, 33, was signed to a contract just last week, but San Francisco appears to be comfortable moving forward with Colt McCoy and rookie B.J. Daniels as Colin Kaepernick’s backup this season.
Wallace didn’t generate a lot...
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Seneca Wallace was said to be retired after not traveling with the team, to the preseason finale against the San Diego Chargers. Apparently it was just a case of a player not being happy with his current scenery. Don Yee Wallace's agent provided a quote to NFL.com stating that his client wants to continue to play professional football.
The San Francisco 49ers will wrap up the 2013 preseason with a game in San Diego against the Chargers. This is a game where none of the starters are likely to play. Usually the last preseason game is reserved for the guys at the bottom of the roster. For some of them, this is the last opportunity to show what they have. The preseason gives fringe roster players a chance to get some...
The Packers and 49ers are two of the best teams in the NFL and face off opening weekend, this is a great game for the fans.
