Blaine Gabbert ranked as worst backup QB in NFL

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Blaine Gabbert's career hasn't been what his draft status and expectations coming out of college were suppose to be like.

He'll join Colin...

Is the 49ers’ Blaine Gabbert really the worst backup quarterback in the NFL?

What is the worst scenario that you can possibly imagine for the San Francisco 49ers to begin their 2015 campaign? For my money, it goes something like this: on the first snap of their first drive of the Monday Night Football season debut against the Minnesota Vikings, Colin Kaepernick drops back, reads the left side of the field and sees Torrey Smith streaking open… Kaepernick...

Five draft picks that are haunting the Jaguars

The Jaguars are a team in the dumps and every season they seem to sink further into the abyss of NFL irrelevance. The 0-3 start certainly hasn’t helped as it has already become clear this will be another season with no playoff berth. Jacksonville is a team that struggles to get fan support and has almost no game in the free agency market and that’s why the draft is so critical...

It took nearly 10 quarters of play for the San Francisco 49ers to score a touchdown, but late in Sunday's preseason game against the San Diego Chargers they finally did.

5 things to watch for as 49ers look for first preseason win

The 49ers are currently 0-2 in preseason play and have only put up a total of 3 points. Is it time to be concerned? Not just yet. This is a talented team and a lot of the starters have not even seen the field yet. So 49er fans, I would not start to worry just yet. The only thing I would worry about is if Blaine Gabbert gets to start which is VERY slim, in fact there is no chance...

The 49ers need to be very worried about Blaine Gabbert

When the backup quarterback enters a meaningful NFL game to do anything other than kneel down or assume garbage time duties, something has gone horribly wrong. At that point of dire hopelessness, there’s a minimum accepted standard: competence. Blaine Gabbert hasn’t shown he’s capable of even that in San Francisco. He didn’t demonstrate competence in Jacksonville either,...
