Colin Kaepernick ‘surprised’ by fourth quarter benching

The San Francisco 49ers benched quarterback Colin Kaepernick on Sunday, and he was a bit taken aback by it.

With his team down 22 in the fourth, Kaepernick was benched for Blaine Gabbert. “I was surprised. It...

Colin Kaepernick benched for Blaine Gabbert in Chicago

Colin Kaepernick, who came into Sunday on a hot streak, went ice cold in the frozen tundra that was Soldier Field.

Report: Some of Kaepernick's teammates want him to start

Blaine Gabbert had probably his most efficient game of the season in the San Francisco 49ers’ loss on Sunday, but that isn’t saying much. While he completed almost 70 percent of his passes, Gabbert did throw a key interception late in the fourth quarter. Perhaps it was that pass that resulted in him losing the support of some teammates. Matt Miller of Bleacher Report said Monday...

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. The quarterback’s arrival in San Francisco last spring was met with plenty of skepticism, as most figured the “bust” label was already etched in stone. After all, the former first-round pick’s three-year tenure with the Jacksonville Jaguars can only be described as disastrous...

The Blaine Gabbert Era in San Francisco begins

It may come as a surprise to some, but Blaine Gabbert is only 26 years old.
