Can San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick Emerge as a MVP Candidate?

The San Francisco 49ers and Colin Kaepernick have faced their fair share of struggles this preseason, but the outlook should remain positive. QB Colin Kaepernick is entering his second full year as the starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers. It may seem a bit premature, but I feel that Kaepernick can emerge into a MVP candidate. Kaepernick may only be entering his second...

49ers’ Colin Kaepernick Comments on Stevie Johnson’s “Unorthodox Style”

New to the San Francisco 49ers this season, wide receiver Stevie Johnson admitted that a disconnect exists between he and quarterback Colin Kaepernick, which the former Buffalo Bills player attributes to his own “unorthodox style“. Word out of Bay Area: @StevieJohnson13's unorthodox style is throwing off chemistry with @Kaepernick7. http://t.co/WDxY5JRCHy — Patrick Crawley...

Um, Is That Russell Wilson’s Penis On The Cover Of Sports Illustrated?

Yeah, I know we posted the new Sports Illustrated NFL preview covers earlier, but we failed to address one peculiar aspect of the west coast edition. The cover features 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick, shirtless and looking ripped as hell, while Russell Wilson is fully clothed, but possibly wearing football pants that are two sizes too small. Yep, that definitely looks like a...

Kaepernick, Stevie Johnson admit their connection isn’t “clicking” yet

When Anquan Boldin arrived last offseason, his connection with Colin Kaepernick was immediate. As early as May OTAs, the two looked like they had been playing together since childhood, and in Week 1 they hooked up 13 times for 208 yards. Kaepernick's connection with another veteran acquired via trade, Stevie Johnson, hasn't been nearly as swift. But that's neither surprising...

Kaepernick will play in 49ers' exhibition finale against Texans

Colin Kaepernick is slated to play in Thursday night's exhibition finale, and for the 49ers' sake, they'd certainly like a repeat of last year's cameo. Kaepernick played only the first series but delivered a touchdown drive in the 2013 exhibition finale at San Diego. That history isn't exactly on Kaepernick's mind entering Thursday's game at Houston...

AFC GM on Colin Kaepernick: “I believe there’s something physically wrong with him”

One AFC general manager told Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report that he believes there’s something physically wrong with 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. “I believe there’s something physically wrong with him. Everything looks off from last year, and it goes beyond the poor play of his offensive line. Usually when a guy looks so different from last year, it’s something physical...

49ers still in search of third receiver

The 49ers’ plan at the No. 3 receiver remains a mystery -- even, apparently, to quarterback Colin Kaepernick. “That’ll be a coaches decision,” Kaepernick said Tuesday. “Whoever’s out there, I’ll be throwing to them.” When asked if he likes the 49ers' options at wide receiver beyond starters Anquan Boldin and Michael Crabtree, Kaepernick answered, “Very much...

Recap: 49ers earn first win of the preseason against Chargers

The long wait for a win has come. The San Francisco 49ers defeated the San Diego Chargers Sunday 21-7. Yes, the 49ers did score a touchdown. Two to be exact. There was definitely a lot to enjoy about this victory. The only down side was that the first team offense may need a little work. The backups still looked good, and improved since last week. Now lets go through this weeks awards...

WATCH: San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick Gets Eaten Alive By San Diego DL Corey Liuget

The preseason is really just glorified practice. It means nothing. Teams often run a very vanilla form of their offense in order not to give away anything to their future opponents. That being said it still has to be a little concerning how bad the 49ers offense has looked over the first two (and most of a third) of San Francisco's preseason games.Especially the league's...

Why the San Francisco 49ers should give Tim Tebow a call right now

He hasn’t been seen in awhile, at least on the football field. The only vision of Tim Tebow of late has been on the SEC Network, where he currently is filling the role of a college football analyst. While that gig helps pass the time, and brings in a paycheck, the former Heisman Trophy winner still itches to get back in the game. The quarterback who electrified the league with...

Are any San Francisco 49ers either of the biggest heroes or goats from the past week?

Despite the fact that the games didn’t mean anything in the standings, and will be long forgotten in a week or two, the second week of the preseason provided plenty of highlights and lowlights. There were reasons to be excited, causes for concern and everything in between. What players were at each extreme of the spectrum this week? To see the “Heroes and Goats” from preseason...

Colin Kaepernick says he played through injury last season

Remember when San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick joked about having hangnails on his pinkie toes last season? It was one of the few times he got into the specifics of an injury that forced him to show up on the 49ers injury report for a couple weeks. In less-than-surprising news, Kaepernick wasn’t all too forthcoming when speaking to the media at that time. And now...

San Francisco 49ers tumble down preseason Power Rankings, check in at No. 7

Every team has played two games. Most of the starters have seen enough action to provide a sense of what a team has to offer. And the picture is becoming clearer around the league. Yes, it’s dangerous to put too much stock in preseason games. But it’s also foolish to ignore information that can be very valuable, which is what exhibitions provide to the keen observer.

Are the San Francisco 49ers Stunting Colin Kaepernick’s Growth

When the San Francisco 49ers benched Alex Smith in favor of then wide-eyed second-year quarterback Colin Kaepernick during the 2012 season, skeptics concluded that the decision made little sense. Why bench a player that had led your team to the NFC Championship game the season prior, some said.  And I fell under that category. Kaepernick seemed far from being a starter-caliber quarterback...
