Colin Kaepernick’s contract structure protects team from overpaying struggling QB

The contract that San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick signed in June of last year marks a new era regarding money paid to quarterbacks. It’s not the value or length—six years, $114 million—nor the guaranteed money—$61 million—that makes it so curious. After all, it’s rare that a quarterback ever sees the full value of a contract he signs nowadays. ...

Three things to watch for when Colin Kaepernick takes the field this weekend

The 49ers offensive line has been a big topic of discussion during the team’s current three-game skid. While they may not be playing great football, they are not playing bad football, either. After watching the tape from last week’s loss to Green Bay, the horrific offensive performance is on Colin Kaepernick’s shoulders alone. If he does not revert back to the 2011-2012 Kap...

Fans are afraid to come out from under the covers to find out what doom comes next for their beloved team, but wide receiver Torrey Smith tried to provide a little hope, per ESPN’s Paul Gutierrez. “We’re a better team than what we’re...

Jim Tomsula: ‘I want a confident’ Colin Kaepernick

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has struggled mightily, but head coach Jim Tomsula isn’t about to insert backup gunslinger Blaine Gabbert. According to Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News, Tomsula rebuffed the idea of a quarterback competition and said he still believes in the beleaguered quarterback. “I want a confident man, knowing just full-bore ahead...

What should be done with Colin Kaepernick?

No, Blaine Gabbert is probably not the quarterback of the future for the San Francisco 49ers. But, it’s getting more and more difficult to see Colin Kaepernick holding that post for many more seasons—let alone this one. Why is that? Where did the talent go that he displayed in 2012 and 2013? As is typically the case, a combination of factors are in play here. First, let’s...

Is the Colin Kaepernick era coming to a close in San Francisco?

Over the past few seasons I’m sure I’m not the only one who’s noticed the apparent regression of San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Back in 2012, then 49ers quarterback Alex Smith spun into a St. Louis Rams defender and “took a little pop” as the commentator described it. Smith would leave the game with a concussion and never return to the field as a starter...

Clay Matthews rips Colin Kaepernick: ‘You ain’t Russell Wilson, bro!’ (video)

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has had a rough season so far, and Sunday’s game against the Green Bay Packers was no different. He completed only 13 of 25 passes for 160 yards (one interception), and took six sacks as well. Kaepernick continues to struggle going through his progressions, and accuracy and ball placement have plagued him, too. Things aren’t going...

Jimmy Johnson thinks 49ers need to move on from Colin Kaepernick

Colin Kaepernick’s time as the starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers may be drawing to a close, and it’s almost a guarantee he won’t start in 2016 if he continues on his current course. Former Dallas Cowboys head coach and current Fox Sports analysts Jimmy Johnson was asked what he’d do if he were coaching Kaepernick. His response was blunt, to say the least....

Clay Matthews taunts Kaepernick with Russell Wilson line

Clay Mathews and the Green Bay Packers were all over Colin Kaepernick on Sunday, sacking him six times in a 17-3 win over the 49ers. Not only did Mathews and his defense terrorize the QB all game, but the Green Bay linebacker personally insulted him not once, but twice. After a sack, Mathews kissed his...Read More

Report: Kaepernick struggling to grasp simplified play book

The San Francisco 49ers were completely destroyed offensively and defensively by the Arizona Cardinals in a blowout loss of 47-7 in Sunday’s game. Things were so bad for the 49ers late in the game that fans were shouting for Blaine Gabbert to take over. For that, quarterback Colin Kaepernick has gone on record to say that the loss was 100 percent his fault. So what went wrong...
