New 49ers OC swears Colin Kaepernick is not as bad as he looks

Chief among the challenges facing new San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Geep Chryst is how to fix quarterback Colin Kaepernick. If Kaepernick takes a major step forward in his development the 2015 season holds alot more promise for the 49ers. If he continues to stagnate or regresses again like last year, they may fall apart in a hurry. However, to hear Chryst tell it Kaepernick...

49ers OC: Kaepernick didn’t regress as much as believed

Statistically speaking, Colin Kaepernick’s 2014 NFL campaign was impressive in some ways but a failure in others. But to hear it from San Francisco 49ers offensive coordinator Geep Chryst, the quarterback didn’t regress as much as it has been perceived. In fact, Chryst argues that any regression by Kaepernick arguably was attributable to things beyond...Read More The post 49ers...

Look: This alternate Madden cover featuring 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick is awesome

Last year was a rough one for San Francisco 49ers fans. In addition to finishing third in the NFC West, they had to suffer the indignity of seeing Richard Sherman’s face all over Madden 15. He was on the cover and the start screen along with Earl Thomas, Kam Chancellor and Byron Maxwell (now with the Eagles.) It’s enough to make any gaming Niners fan throw up their hands in despair...

Is Kaepernick the 49ers answer at quarterback?

Quarterback is unlike any other position in professional team sports. He is the general, leading his army into battle. He signifies that beacon of hope for a franchise.  The ball is touched by his hands on every offensive play. When you have a good one there’s a window, a chance to accomplish something great. When you have an average or bad quarterback, you’re searching for...

Once highly regarded Colin Kaepernick now ranked 'Third-Tier' QB, according to league-wide poll

Colin Kaepernick likes 49ers' offseason changes

To say that the San Francisco 49ers had a pretty tumultuous offseason would be an understatement. They lost head coach Jim Harbaugh to the Michigan Wolverines only to replace him with a guy in Jim Tomsula who has zero experience as even a coordinator in the NFL.   The team also saw the likes of Patrick Willis, Chris Borland, Justin Smith and Anthony Davis announce their retirements...
