WATCH: 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick Throws Career Long Touchdown Pass to Brandon Lloyd

For most teams it may be frustrating to see their offense start slow as often as the 49ers tend to--but not for San Francisco fans.

Chiefs’ secondary avoiding a repeat of last year's aerial circus

One of the enduring images of the Chiefs’ 22-17 loss to San Francisco last week was 49ers receiver Brandon Lloyd’s soaring 29-yard catch over Sean Smith in the fourth quarter.

After the Chiefs routinely got worked over on deep passes...

Brandon Lloyd is making an impression at 49ers camp

The curious case of Brandon Lloyd was a test in the waters that simply did not work out for the Patriots. A talented wide receiver, Lloyd failed to bring in the electric play-making ability that New England fans thought they were guaranteed when he signed with the Pats. After a few flashy plays and a slightly above average (if that) season in Foxboro, Lloyd quickly found himself...

Lloyd sat out last season despite catching 74 passes for 911 yards and four touchdowns for the New England Patriots in 2012 in hopes the 49ers came calling.
