As the San Francisco 49ers head into Kansas City to take on the Kansas City Chiefs there are plenty of things to look forward to regarding this game. The most notable is former Niner Quarterback Alex Smith playing against his former team for the first time. But, there’s more important things as far as the Niners are concerned. Here’s the things to watch regarding this preseason game.
Alex Smith vs Colin Kaepernick: I know it’s clique to put this number 1 on the list, but this is what people are going to be most intrigued by. How will Smith perform against a defense that he knows so well? Will Kaepernick justify Jim Harbaugh’s decision to turn to him instead of Smith down the stretch next season? Those questions will play themselves out, even if it is only for a quarter or less. This game is more important for Smith than it is for Kaepernick as Smith has a point to prove, but also Kapernick wants to continue to develop chemistry with his new receivers and build off of the solid s...

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, and other athletes who show off their tattoos, may be staring at possible lawsuits, according to a report on Forbes.com. The issue is over who owns the copyright for the ink — the players or the tattoo artists?
Arizona Cardinals coach Bruce Arians once coached with the Pittsburgh Steelers as their offensive coordinator, and went up against the New England Patriots almost annually in the 2000’s.
This time, Colin Kaepernick will probably be more conscious of what he’s wearing.
This Fourth of July, the San Francisco quarterback drew the ire of 49ers fans when he was photographed wearing a Miami Dolphins cap. Kaepernick corrected the fashion faux pas by posting a photo of him in a 49ers cap to Instagram days later, but the damage was done.
Despite Kaepernick’s questionable...

There will be some hard feelings and extra motivation when Kansas City Chiefs QB Alex Smith faces his old team, the San Francisco 49ers. Smith is mostly concerned about running his new offense in his second preseason start. It's only the preseason, but the team Smith used to against in practice every day, will actually get to get a chance to hit him now.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. -- The highlight reel was short, but the handshake line was long. He embraced Scott Tolzien warmly. He shook hands with guards Adam Snyder and Mike Iupati. Too much water, not enough bridges.

The San Francisco 49ers’ defense appears to have picked up where it left off last year and has not allowed a touchdown in two preseason games. Vic Fangio's unit registered seven sacks and allowed two field goals Friday. Fourth-string quarterback B.J. Daniels threw the team's only touchdown pass of the exhibition season, perhaps vaulting him into the discussion among Colin...

Week 2 of the NFL Preseason brings a few more snaps for the starters, and position battles begin to develop for the final spots on the roster. The San Francisco 49ers have played in the past two NFC Championship games, but you can still make the argument that they are starting a new chapter. This will be the first full season for starting quarterback Colin Kaepernick after he replaced...
