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.”
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...
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...
San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh named Colin Kaepernick the starter for the third week in a row. It looks as if he will continue as the full-time starter unless he is injured or takes a step back in his production. What will they do with Alex Smith?
The trade deadline has passed and he is still a very valuable back up for this season. Kaepernick is a mobile and running...
Some are stunned that Jim Harbaugh is sticking with Colin Kaepernick as the 49ers starter going forward, this kid brings a solid arm with the ability to run in the NFL to the table. The 49ers have done very well with Colin Kaepernick in their last two games. Smith was a good quarterback, Colin Kaepernick is a bit better. The kid is strong and seems to have the heart of a champion...
The California Highway Patrol says it arrested San Francisco 49ers defensive end Demarcus Dobbs early Friday morning on suspicion of driving under the influence and possession of marijuana.
CHP Officer D.J. Sarabia says Dobbs was involved in a single-car accident in which he hit a chain-link fence and a bush but didn't sustain any injuries. Dobbs was arrested at 3:45 a.m.
Jim Harbaugh announced today that Colin Kaepernick will start this week against the St Louis Rams. Harbaugh said that Colin, I believe has the hot hand and we’ll go with Colin. Of course he finished that sentence with, ‘and we’ll go with Alex. Both our guys.’
This really shouldn’t come as a surprise, the offense under Kaepernick just seems much more explosive. Regardless...
Rams coach Jeff Fisher is the latest person to be critical of 49ers defensive end Justin Smith, making a comment about his technique.
SANTA CLARA, Calif. (AP) Colin Kaepernick will start at quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday at St. Louis.
Coach Jim Harbaugh made the announcement Wednesday that Kaepernick would go over Alex Smith after the second-year pro led the NFC West-leading Niners (8-2-1) to victories in the past two games, his first two NFL starts.
He says, "Colin we believe has the...
There's a price to pay for those who venture across the middle of the San Francisco 49ers' defense. Dashon Goldson and Donte Whitner are making sure of that, roaming the center of the field with impunity and delivering the kind of pain that’s leaving fear in their wake throughout the NFL.
Alex Smith has been supplanted as starting quarterback of the 49ers by Colin Kaepernick. Though Jim Harbaugh still has to carefully go through the motions of weighing the decision of who to start each week so as to be diplomatic about the change, it’s clear that it’s Kaepernick’s job. It was evident before halftime of the Monday night win over the Bears two weeks ago. A capable...
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...
