Niners' fourth-round draft pick 'has unlimited potential'

Colin Kaepernick will have some shiny new toys to play with in 2015. The 49ers signed deep threat Torrey Smith and versatile running back Reggie Bush in the offseason. But they also drafted a multi-sport athlete out of Georgia Tech who "has a very high ceiling," according to Yellow Jackets football coach Paul Johnson.DeAndre Smelter was placed on the non-football injury (NFI) list...

Three things for San Francisco 49ers fans to keep an eye on at training camp

Teams across the NFL are starting to open training camps signaling the end of a long and drama filled offseason for the San Francisco 49ers and the NFL as a whole. The furor surrounding the Tom Brady appeal and the legal action that is sure to follow has swallowed up most other news, but (thankfully) the legal proceedings of that case will fade away for the majority of the NFL once...

49ers OC: Kaepernick's struggles in 2014 exaggerated

It wasn't too long ago that Colin Kaepernick was being lauded he could be one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time.  All that changed in 2014. Kaepernick's inconsistencies reflected the 49ers 8-8 record. He registered career highs in interceptions (10), fumbles lost (5) and sacks (52).  Despite his struggles, 49ers offensive coordinator, Geep Chryst, believes his signal caller...

49ers OC says Colin Kaepernick didn’t regress as much as perceived

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was a perplexing case to analyze last year. He passed for a career-high 3,369 yards and improved his pass completion percentage from the previous year. However, he also achieved his career-high in interceptions with 10 and threw less touchdowns than in his previous season. Many critics out there would come to the conclusion that the...

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...

Could fantasy football eventually lead to the decline of the NFL?

Team loyalty in the NFL is a sacred bond between fan and franchise that has, for decades, been unassailable for many Americans. The bond is growing weaker as a new generation emerges, however, and as player culture begins to dominate. Raised on the addictive sport of fantasy football, this new generation is learning that player loyalty offers more immediate satisfaction than...

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...

Will the real Colin Kaepernick, please stand up

Colin Kaepernick is the San Francisco 49ers 27-year-old, electrifying, highlight-reel waiting to happen quarterback who may be taking on a new role in 2015.

San Francisco 49ers Hoping Colin Kaepernick’s Work with Kurt Warner Leads to Improvement

(Photo by Ezra Shaw/Getty Images) Kurt Warner never played a single snap with the 49ers, in fact he often played the role of nemesis during his time with the St. Louis Rams. Despite his previous on-field relationship to San Francisco, Warner could prove to be one of the most important people to the 49ers franchise this year. After the future Hall of Fame quarterback worked with...

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...

Marcus Martin ready to take next step in sophomore campaign

In an offseason filled with a number of roster changes, the San Francisco 49ers - and Colin Kaepernick - know they will have a familiar face along the offensive line.  That would be second-year player Marcus Martin.

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

Colin Kaepernick burst onto the scene during the 2012 playoffs, when he led the 49ers to a 45-31 victory over the Green Bay Packers thanks to 181 rushing yards - an NFL single-game record for a quarterback - and another 263 yards through the air, plus four total touchdowns.  ESPN NFL analyst Ron Jaworski praised the signal caller in the offseason saying "he could be one of the greatest...

Three players the San Francisco 49ers cannot afford to lose to injury

If you follow the NFL all year then you are probably aware that training camp is right around the corner. First practices for some teams start as early as this weekend. Some rookies have already reported for duty. The CBA has changed training camp quite a bit. There are far fewer padded practices than before and gone are the grueling “two-a-days” that used to define the NFL in...

How does Nick Foles compare to Sam Bradford?

The Rams’ former quarterback Sam Bradford has had a rough couple years. He’s had to battle two consecutive torn ACL’s in the same knee, fresh new crops of doe-eyed wide receivers, a revolving door at offensive coordinator and no real talent to block for him. But it was his inability to stay healthy that ultimately forced the Rams to make a move for Nick Foles. The former Philadelphia...

How the 49ers can beat each of their NFC West rivals this year

I have long been a proponent of the fact that I think teams, fans, and pundits are selling the San Francisco 49ers short this year.  I think this is a talented ball club.  One of the main criticisms I hear is that they can’t hang anymore in the NFC West. This is ridiculous. There are paths to victory against each team in the division and the 49ers have the tools to exploit...

Watch: That one playoff game when Colin Kaepernick ran all over the Packers

Aaron Rodgers might be the best quarterback on the planet, but he’s had a heck of a time trying to beat Colin Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers. The main reason the Niners have had so much success against the Packers is their inability to contain Kaepernick, who is of course one of the most mobile quarterbacks in the NFL.
