Does Blaine Gabbert deserve a chance to start in 2016?

Expectations were sky high for quarterback Blaine Gabbert coming out of the NFL draft. Gabbert was picked 10th overall by the Jacksonville Jaguards in 2011 and was thought to be the franchise’s savior. Unfortunately his play was inconsistent throughout his tenure with the team and he was widely viewed as a massive bust by the time they shipped him out to the 49ers for a measly...

Blaine Gabbert shedding 'bust' label with second chance

Blaine Gabbert isn’t a savior for the San Francisco 49ers, but he’s also no longer a bust.

After all, the former first-round pick’s three-year tenure with the Jacksonville Jaguars can only be described as disastrous...

A Blaine Gabbert press conference is the loneliest place in the world

It’s been a bit of a depressing season for San Francisco 49ers fans with the former perennial contender taking a nosedive after an offseason exodus like the NFL has never seen.  Players retiring in their prime, players getting injured, players joining new teams.  Oh, and the old coach who was run out of town seems to be doing pretty well for himself at his new gig. But when the...

Blaine Gabbert was only person at his press conference

    The 49ers play the Cardinals on Sunday and, as it’s customary, there was a press conference during the week at which time San Francisco’s quarterback was made available to the media. Unfortunately, in this case, media was not to be found. Gabbert arrived for his press conference on Wednesday only to see the room empty. So, as CSN Bay Area’s Mindi Bach shared in the...

Colin Kaepernick and the 'cuttable mega-contracts'

This week, the San Francisco 49ers are mired in what has to be a historically unique predicament. About 19 months after the team played in the Super Bowl, the Niners are about to host the Atlanta Falcons, and will voluntarily sit the healthy quarterback who got them one victory short of the Lombardi Trophy—Colin Kaepernick—in favor of Blaine Gabbert.
