San Fran QB Colin Kaepernick

He's adopted, biracial, heavily tattooed, and the most exciting QB in the NFL. Oh, and he's sizzlin' hot. Plus, he has a pet turtle that weighs 119 pounds.

He's a gorgeous man (although the tattoos are a bit much). Anyone have any gossip about him?

I was going to dismiss the tats complaint as the usual prissy whining, until I googled his pics. I usually like tattoos but yes he is overly tatted, his back is completely covered. So is most of his chest and they're bad, ugly tats too, like he let a 10 yr old scribble all over him. And if they're mostly bible quotes, he must be a real freak too.

by Anonymousreply 501/13/2013

I've been watching Kaepernick since his days at Nevada.

I seriously never thought he would make it this far. He was not really on the recruitment radar.

I'm happy to see that he has gone from the Western Athletic Conference (WAC - aka nowheresville) to the NFL Playoffs, and hopefully the Superbowl.

Funny how everyone creams over the SEC, but it's a lowly WAC player who is making the headlines.

Fuck the SEC.

Those tattoos completely ruin his look.

Completely disgusting. He looks dirty and smelly.... like he just served 15 yrs for rape.

He looks so sizzling. The kind of man that would fuck your brains out, until you completely passed out and then just kept going at it like a demanding pig without nary thought for you.

Plus, last night, he handed my Packers their ass.

I knew the Packers were going to lose when, at the beginning of the 3rd quarter, the Packers went 3 and out.

Kaepernick is very impressive. I'll be curious to see how he does against a defense that actually, unlike the Packers, shows up to do thier job.

Don't even get me started on Aaaron Rodgers.

Kaepernick is a decent-looking guy with an incredible body. The turtle makes him even more likable; the tattoos detract from his appearance, however. For someone so young, he's covered a LOT of his body.

"Don't even get me started on Aaron Rodgers."

When Kaepernick ran that touchdown in, the cameras went to Rodgers on the sideline, and he was just sitting there EATING SOMETHING, rolling his eyes and munching away like he didn't have a care in the world. I know you hate Favre, Della, but we never saw that kind of "whatever" attitude from him. Never!

by Anonymousreply 2901/13/2013

I don't "hate" Favre. I hated how some Packers fans couldn't see that the team was right to move on from him. Hell, I was arguing the season before he shit the bed at Lambeau in overtime against the Giants that he should be traded.

Now, the problem with the offensive play calling of the Packers is going long ALL.THE.TIME in a situation where you need only a quick screen pass to move the chains.

Throwing the long pass when you need only say, 6 yards for the first down takes too long and then boom- Rodgers sacked.

Coach McCarthy better enlarge his bag of tricks, because, guess what, thier opponents have caught on to what's now, and has been, in his play call repertoire.

I'm not an anti-tattoo troll, really. But when I see people with as many tattoos as Colin, I do think "what's wrong with that person".

Why do they cover their bodies with so many tattoos? The ones on his back - he can't even see them - what's the point? How much did he spend on all of those - he could probably feed about twelve of Sally Struthers' orphans for a year! Does he think that's a good look?

I'm not the best to comment on this because I've never had any interest in tattoos, and never understood my friends who have gotten them. But they at least get one or two small things that matter to them, instead of getting ink all over their body.

Around The League's own Dan Hanzus kick-started a national storyline this week when he noticed that Colin Kaepernick was "favoriting" all the hateful messages he was receiving on Twitter.

On Thursday night, Kaepernick responded in the best way possible during San Francisco's 35-11 rout over the St. Louis Rams. The 49ers quarterback converted a handful of third-and-long plays to extend two lengthy touchdown drives. After the game, NFL Media's Rich Eisen asked Kaepernick about all of the quarterback's Twitter critics.

"That's all right," Kaepernick said. "They can tweet to me tonight."

Hello r112.

I lurk, so not a regular member. Didn't mean to drop and run. Apologies.

I have to be careful as to what I say. The stigma of gays in the NFL is not just amongst players, so I just have to wonder if there are colleagues here or not.

Anyway, not sure what more you want to hear? I posted because this very conversation came up just a few days ago at work. My colleagues have regular contact with both teams and players. Kap apparently works the PR angle well with the media, but in reality, when no one is watching, not a nice guy.

Disappointing all around, including to my colleagues, because the "mild mannered local boy makes it big" story is our bread and butter. We want that stuff to be real too. I cannot speculate as to whether the fast rise and great success went to his head or not, so maybe this is a recent development. We never had dealings with him before he was the starter.

I can give you an added aside that some of the stadium workers grew up with him and played against him as a kid, particularly in baseball, where he excelled. They volunteered the same story. Arrogant, etc.

But then again, kissing the guns after a touchdown isn't exactly humble, is it?

My experience with the NFL is that the good 'ole boys still reign supreme: on the field, in the front offices and in the TV world that broadcasts the games. Modern gladiators, no pussies allowed...

Cannot speak to the written press that covers it. Perhaps that is where things are different?

I think other sports may be different. IMHO, the first sign of an open minded sport comes from the front office staff, and the integration of women into positions of power. The gay tolerance seems to follow thereafter. I don't know why, but after 20 years in the business, that's how I've seen it unfold.

I would like to add that I've seen women in great positions of power at top NCAA Div 1 school working with male sports (football, basketball, baseball), women calling college football games and female PR directors in the NBA as far back as 20 years ago.

In the NFL, the only example I've seen in 20 years is Amy Trask from the Raiders, and she too is now gone. Plus, she had no real power IMHO, as Al Davis ran that organization from stem to stern. Aside from very few female owners over the years, there is not much progress going on in the NFL. Even Denise Debartolo York ceded control of the 49ers to her idiot husband and then her son.

Yes, sponsors are homophobic, but not openly. That's the shitty part.

I think the climate in the US is shifting so much that many are aware of the need not to appear homophobic, but are homophobic. So I think there would be an initial show of support for the client. And then the contract would quietly not be renewed.

This is 100% true. This I have always believed. I have never believed that people are getting more accepting of gay people, I have always believed that people hide it their prejudice because it's not "in" to bash gay people like it used to be.

So, maybe this explains Kerry Rhodes not getting signed post-Hollywood (his lover) outing him, or Jason Collins not getting signed.

I wonder to what extent the NFL is more homophobic due to having more fundamentalist/conservative Christians in the sport. Football is king in the bible belt and red states. I've read of them in the NFL (Brees and Rodgers among them), but not so much the NBA.

My sense is that the NBA is light years ahead of the other leagues. Kenneth Fareed openly supports equality and doesn't seem to get any flack. Kobe Bryant was fined for calling a ref (or was it a player?) a faggot. But he was fined immediately and was contrite. He also called out someone on his twitter feed for using the word. He and Pau Gasol both congratulated Collins when he came out. Collins hasn't been picked up, but I think it has more to do with being 34 and never having been a starter.

I think you are wrong here. I think many people are more accepting. I think corporate America is not, but is aware enough to know that it won't fly in the current political climate.

Similar to the post-civil rights climate of the 60s and the 70s, it starts with awareness and then become part of the culture with subsequent generations.

Progress is slow.

R135, I think you're generally correct. Brees is an openly fundie Christian but is also close friends (and not just celebrity friends) with Ellen and has said his favorite show is Glee. While that's not much, it does show some openness and difference compared to other fundies. That being said, he also has done video interviews for fundie Christian publications where he extols his relationship with god and discusses, although not as vehemently as others, some fairly conservative social positions. Other than the fact you mentioned him, the other reason I mention Brees is that he has an important role with the players' union and can thus influence how the union and league address the issue of gay players.

r118, I just don't buy your assessment of Colin. For one thing, in a sport where athletes routinely engage in exuberant, macho celebrating and posturing in every game, why would Kaepernick's flexing his guns even be noteworthy? Every game I watch features something similar, usually multiple athletes engaging in actions that are much more Alpha Male. Football is a sport that celebrates the Alpha Male, and people love it! It is part of the show. People don't object to WWE wrestlers having swag, and neither do they when football players exude athletic confidence. Look at Geno Smith, RGIII, Cam Newton, Mike Vick, Aaron Rodgers, or Ryan Tannehill. They are nice dudes, but they are not meek about their teams and their talents. Confidence and overt swagger are part of the game and image.

He ran. He threw. He conquered.

Colin Kaepernick did it all Sunday, rushing for two touchdowns and throwing for another to lead the San Francisco 49ers to their fifth straight victory, 42-10 over the winless Jacksonville Jaguars at Wembley Stadium.

'The offensive line did a great job, made it easy for me,' said Kaepernick, who led the 49ers to the Super Bowl last year. 'I think this is one of the first game that we started that fast.'

Kaepernick ended up with 164 yards passing and 54 yards rushing, Frank Gore also ran for two scores and 71 yards, while Kendall Hunter rushed for 84 yards for the 49ers (6-2).

But it was Kaepernick that made the key plays by when the team needed it early.

'He looked much like a running back, and that's great courage,' 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh said. 'You don't always see that in the quarterback position. As soon as he saw that window, he had a great dart and speed to get the ball into the end zone.'

For those who claim to know Kaepernick they should know that the bicep he kisses has a Bible verse tattoo on it and that is what he is kissing. Psalm 18:39 he is kissing that psalm and its meaning. Unless he's being really tricky and really kissing himself because he is just that vain and knows he can always just say "hey I was kissing my Bible verse.

San Fran really is sputtering, losing yesterday's game to the studly Saints. There were already plenty of questions about San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and his ability to lead the offense.

Kaepernick and the 49ers did nothing to quiet those concerns Sunday during an inconsistent and error-filled 23-20 loss to the New Orleans Saints at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome. While there was some improvement from a week earlier against the Carolina Panthers, the second-year starter still made too many missteps at the most critical junctures against the Saints, as the defending NFC champs lost their second straight to drop to 6-4.

None were bigger than the mistakes Kaepernick made on the 49ers final possession, which paved the way for the Saints' game-winning Garrett Hartley 31-yard field goal in the waning moments.

A first down on the 49ers final drive that started with 2:06 remaining could have made all of the difference. But instead the Niners went three-and-out for the second straight possession after Kaepernick took an ill-advised sack, then came close to an intentional grounding from his own end zone while under pressure, and finally allowed himself to be pushed out of out of bounds three yards short of first down on a third-and-19 play from the 11, preserving precious time for the Saints, who were down to their last time out.

Not only did the 49ers go backwards nine yards on their final possession but they managed to take only 18 seconds off the clock, which left plenty of time for Drew Brees and the Saints.

"We had some negative plays on that last drive," said 49ers center Jonathan Goodwin, who played for the Saints from 2006-10. "The first play was a negative play, and then we had the incompletion and that puts you in third and long. And in this league third and long is a tough situation."

It was that kind of day for Kaepernick & Co., who started out with three three-and-out series to begin the game. Late in the second quarter, the 49ers seemed to find a bit of a groove that lasted through the third. But then the offense stalled again as the Saints 3-4 defense reclaimed control.

Many analysts believe Kaepernick, who a year ago made the second start of his career here at the Superdome and won, is struggling with recognition, decision-making and just overall growth in the offense. Saints defensive coordinator Rob Ryan certainly didn't make things easier for him with constant shifting along the front seven, sometimes standing up all of the defensive lineman, as he did last week against Dallas, to make pass rushing recognition even more difficult.

"They do a lot more on defense," said Kaepernick, who completed 17 of 31 passes for 127 yards, two touchdowns and one interception while being sacked three times. "Other than that, that's the biggest difference. They give a lot of different looks."

The Saints defense limited San Francisco to just 196 yards of total offense, marking the first time since 2000 they have held back-to-back opponents to under 200 yards of total offense.

A year ago, the 49ers put up 375 yards of offense in 56 plays during their 31-21 win over the Saints at the Superdome. Those yards were cut by nearly half in the same amount of plays Sunday.

The 49ers players said it was obvious they were facing a much different Saints defense this year, even though many of the names making the plays are the same.

"They give you multiple rushing looks, they are aggressive and they have so many different looking packages," Goodwin said. "They were a lot better than they were last year."

San Francisco tight end Vernon Davis certainly agrees. He said there is no comparison between the defense he riddled a couple of years ago in the NFC divisional playoff game. On Sunday, Davis caught just four passes for 33 yards, which included a 17-yard touchdown catch in the third quarter.

Davis ran circles around safeties Roman Harper and Malcolm Jenkins in the NFC playoff game, but he found his opportunities far more scarce Sunday.

"Totally big difference," the Pro Bowl tight end said of the Saints new defense under their first-year defensive coordinator. "The very first time we played them was in the playoffs and they would go man-to-man and leave the tight ends isolated with the safeties.

"But they switched some things around. They played great tonight."

Still, the 49ers felt as though they victimized themselves more than they were defeated by the Saints. They pointed to their errors standing between them and the win.

"I think we made it difficult on ourselves at times," said Kaepernick, who is in his third year as an NFL player but has only started the equivalent of one full season worth of games. "We didn't execute the way that we should, we didn't make plays when we had a chance."

The final series was particularly frustrating for Davis, who felt the 49ers had control going into their last possession.

"I thought we had it, we kept our faith and we thought we could get down there and get it in the end zone but it didn't work in our favor," he said. "But we can't dwell on this game. We have to leave it behind."

By just about any metric, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is not playing as well this year as he did last year. But don’t tell that to coach Jim Harbaugh.

When a reporter asked about Kaepernick’s struggles in his second season as San Francisco’s starter, Harbaugh said he didn’t accept the premise of the question.

“I think he’s doing a heck of a job,” Harbaugh said of his first ever offensive draft selection. “I guess I’d be puzzled to why people would think that. What’s most important is what we see. I’m puzzled to why you or anybody else thinks that.”

Kaepernick has totaled just 218 passing yards during the 49ers’ current two-game losing streak. That’s less in two games than most quarterbacks average in one game. But Harbaugh says he’s pleased with the way Kaepernick plays, week in and week out, and has been since Kaepernick’s rookie year.

“He’s been consistently good,” Harbaugh said. “He’s been like that every week he’s been backup or a starter.”

Harbaugh may have Kaepernick’s back, but the reality is that the 49ers are going to need Kaepernick to play better down the stretch than he did in the last two weeks. Entering the season among the favorites to win the Super Bowl, the 49ers are now in danger of missing the playoffs. If they do miss the playoffs, a step backward for Kaepernick will be the primary reason.

A reader asks, "What is it with Colin Kaepernick and his attitude toward the press, and consequently, the public and his fan base?"

Great question!

The reader, John Segerdell, apparently has picked up the same vibe felt by many observers. In the quarterback's sparring sessions with the media, he usually seems terse, brusque, annoyed, heavily guarded.

There is charm and spark in the man. Kaepernick has shown that side publicly on a few occasions, mostly to national media people in extended interviews. To the Bay Area media, he dials waaay back on the human interaction. A media session with him is like an ostensibly friendly ping-pong rally where easy, lob serves are returned with kill shots and menacing glares.

Maybe the questions are dumb or insulting. I'll take some blame because I ask some of the questions, and I haven't won a Pulitzer for question-asking. But the effort is there.

When I attend a Kaepernick news conference now, it's no longer to glean information or insight, but more out of fascination, and that is wearing off. I need to stop being part of the problem. I'll take my dumb questions elsewhere and let others provoke Kaepernick's robo-voice crypto-answers.

The reader said he didn't recall a top Bay Area athlete who blew off questions the way Kaepernick does. Well, in that respect, Kaepernick can't carry Barry Bonds' jock. Other than Barry. ...

It's odd. Unlike Bonds, very unlike Bonds, Kaepernick seems to get along swell with his coaches and teammates, his family, and people in his life.

So it's not really a horrible problem, is it? If Kaepernick wants to project that image, c'est la vie. But as a starting quarterback, he is subjected to this interrogation-lite twice a week, by league rules, and he's likely to be a starter for a long time.

I'll go away, but the fans won't, including the vast majority of 49ers lovers who are Kaepernick fans. They will watch and listen, and some will feel disappointed.

"I find his demeanor insulting to me as a longtime fan," the reader said.

Sorry, John, can't help you.

The expectations at the beginning of the 2013 NFL season were sky-high for Colin Kaepernick. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback hasn’t had an easy time following up his success from the previous season, but his fantastic play as of late has the 49ers set up for another playoff run.

Sunday’s victory against the Arizona Cardinals was an example of that fantastic play, as Kaepernick had one of his best games of the season.

Here are five takeaways from that performance, as the Niners prepare for a first-round playoff matchup against the Green Bay Packers.

Kaepernick Is Ready for the Playoffs

The 49ers ranked 31st in the NFL in passing yards coming into Sunday’s game, but that doesn’t matter if Kaepernick heats up during the playoffs.

The Niners quarterback showed he’s certainly ready for playoff action, as he completed 21 of 34 passes for 306 yards and two touchdown passes. He also averaged over nine yards per pass for the second straight game and the fourth time in six games.

This shows that he is playing his best football when it matters most.

If Kaepernick can even come close to matching last year’s playoff success, which included a single-game quarterback rushing record and 100.9 passer rating in three games, the 49ers will be just fine.

He Can Carry the Offensive Load

The Cardinals had little trouble containing running back Frank Gore on Sunday, limiting him to 14 yards on 13 carries. That allowed them to stack up on pass coverage, which didn’t exactly affect Kaepernick.

The Packers, San Francisco’s first-round opponent in the playoffs, don’t provide that same defensive challenge. They rank 21st in the NFL at defending the pass and 26th against the run.

If Kaepernick can pick apart the Cardinals defense like he did in Week 17, Green Bay should be of little worry. Don’t forget what he did against the Packers in the playoffs last year: 181 rushing yards and four total touchdowns.

He Uses All His Offensive Weapons

Kaepernick connected with seven different receivers for completions on Sunday. Of course, Anquan Boldin was his main target, with his 145 receiving yards comprising nearly half of Kaepernick’s 306 passing yards.

Norm Hall/Getty Images

However, Kap also got some of his other receivers involved. Quinton Patton, who had all of one catch on the year coming into Sunday’s game, caught two passes for 34 yards. Anthony Dixon had a season-high 27 receiving yards on a pair of catches.

Even left tackle Joe Staley had a 17-yard catch.

This might not seem like much, but the various gains add up. Kaepernick’s ability to hit a variety of targets instead of relying on one or two receivers—as he has been prone to do this season—will be especially valuable come playoff time.

He Can Pull Through When it Matters Most

The Cardinals tied the game at 20 with 29 seconds remaining in the game. That didn’t prove to be much of an obstacle for Kaepernick, who completed passes of 18 and 29 yards to allow Phil Dawson to kick a game-winning field goal as time expired.

The 29-yard completion, which went to Patton, was perhaps the biggest play of the day.

Norm Hall/Getty Images

"I liked the matchup and there was no safety on that side of the field," Kaepernick told the Associated Press (h/t regarding the play. "I thought I would give him a chance. He has shown that he can go up and make those plays in practice. He came up with it and it was huge for us."

Drives like those are especially critical in the playoffs, when an entire season might hinge upon a team’s ability to get a quick score.

On Sunday, Kaepernick proved that he has what it takes to lead his team downfield in crunch time.

The Kaepernick-Boldin Connection Is Legit

Christian Petersen/Getty Images

Anquan Boldin carried the 49ers' receiving corps this season and the return of Michael Crabtree hasn’t exactly limited his offensive production.

On the contrary, Boldin produced his highest receiving-yards total since his 208-yard performance in Week 1. He caught nine passes, also his highest total since Week 1, for 149 yards and a touchdown against the Cards to give him 1,179 receiving yards on the season.

During the 49ers' six-game winning streak, Boldin has 549 receiving yards, including touchdown catches in each of the last two games.

"We would like to carry that momentum," Boldin told the Associated Press. "It felt like a playoff game. We came in here and won a tough game, so hopefully that will continue."

Boldin fell off a bit after recording six catches in the first quarter, but responded to his struggles in the second and third quarters with catches of 17 and 18 yards, respectively, during each of the 49ers’ final two drives.

With Crabtree figuring to receive the attention of teams’ top cornerbacks in the playoffs, Boldin will need to step up. His Week 17 performance showed he and Kaepernick are indeed on the same page.

And, despite his pinging to me, I still believe he will attack gay people in his lyrics. With Dr. Dre' as his rap protégé, this is almost a guarantee. Eminem was a joke (and another probable closeted gay man) before he signed with Dre but when he demeaned gay people in his second album, he sky rocketed to super-stardom. It's because of gay people Eminem is successful, not because o his awful music which pales in comparison to Tupac.

In the next few years, I predict that Kaepernick will rap, he will demean gay people (demean gay marriage for example) in his lyrics, he will cry "freedom of speech", the public will rally behind him, and all will be forgotten in one month post-verbal gay attacks.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — First Colin Kaepernick laughed, then he got serious for a moment Thursday when asked for a reaction to the view that the San Francisco 49ers "won" by getting him to sign a massive, albeit team-friendly, contract earlier this month.

"You can skew things anyway you want," Kaepernick said. "At the end of the day, a lot of the way the contract is set up is the way every other quarterback's contract is set up. The things that aren't set up like those contracts are because we wanted them that way, so we could sign other players."

JERRY JONES: Trademark ruling against Redskins a 'deterrent'

Kaepernick's mega-contract, a six-year extension worth up to $126 million through 2020, came with only about $13 million guaranteed at signing, and is structured in such a way that his base salaries from 2015-2017 are guaranteed only for injury, meaning that the team could cut him before April 1 of each year with minimal penalty.

But Kaepernick believes the contract's structure gives the team flexibility with the rest of the roster, and he was well aware of the details before he signed it.

"It was very deliberate by my agents, the organization and myself that we wanted things done this way so we could keep a solid team here," Kaepernick said.

Is it fair to say that Kaepernick is betting on himself, that he'll be playing well enough as the team's starting quarterback that the Niners wouldn't want to part with him?

"If that's what you want to call it, yes," Kaepernick said

He looked great at the ESPYs this week. Very classy.

by Anonymousreply 23707/19/2014

Colin Kaepernick started day two of San Francisco 49ers training camp by completing five consecutive passes to five different targets in a 7-on-7 passing drill.

Kaepernick completed passes to wide receivers Anquan Boldin, Quinton Patton, Devon Wylie, tight end Derek Carrier and then found Michael Crabtree for a 20-yard touchdown pass down the right hash-marks in a red zone period.

In the third 7-on-7 period of the day, Kaepernick completed passes to tight ends Vance McDonald and Asante Cleveland. The 49ers quarterback also completed a slant pattern to new wideout Stevie Johnson.

In team periods, Kaepernick found Brandon Lloyd on a deep cross and Crabtree on a quick pass. Kaepernick overthrew a deep ball to Crabtree 45 yards down the field in the final period of the day.

Unofficially, Kaepernick completed 12 of 18 passes in 7-on-7 and team periods. He especially looked sharp threading the needle down the middle of the field.

Colin Kaepernick likely will only play up to 2 series in Thursday's exhibition opener at Baltimore, Jim Harbaugh said. Sounds safe.

by Anonymousreply 24208/04/2014

Former NFL quarterback Chris Simms believes that Colin Kaepernick receives unfair criticism. Simms got a chance this week to ask Kaepernick why that might be and Kaepernick says it comes down to two things: 'stereotypes' and 'prejudice.'

In case you haven't noticed, Kaepernick isn't shy about showing off his tattoos. The 49ers quarterback also likes to wear his hat backwards -- and he thinks both those things are part of the reason why he's unfairly criticized.

"Stereotypes, prejudice," Kaepernick told Bleacher Report when asked about the criticism. “Whatever you want to call it. I think between the tattoos, the way I dress, the way I talk. People don't think it should go together with a franchise quarterback or someone that's leading the team or representing the organization. At the end of the day, you have to look at, 'Are they knowledgeable? Are they doing their job?' Not what their appearance is."

Kaepernick was called out in 2012 by a national writer who didn't believe a franchise quarterback should be inked up. More recently, Kaepernick was called out by a writer in January for wearing his hat backwards.

The 49ers quarterback has also been criticized for the team-friendly six-year, $126 million extension he signed in June.

"I think it's a great deal for both sides," Kaepernick said. "The NFL is a performance-based business, so you should have to perform to earn some of your money. At the same time, I realize that my success isn't just because of what I do out there. I have great teammates around me who make plays. The contract allows the organization to keep those players."

Another person who will be looking for a new contract soon is 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh. Harbaugh's name also came up during the interview.

If you've ever watched a 49ers game, you may have noticed that Harbaugh can get kind of crazy. Apparently, that's not just something Harbaugh saves for game day.

Kaepernick says that Harbaugh can sometimes be a 'maniac' in the team's quarterback meetings.

"He's a maniac in there," Kaepernick said of his coach. "Always working, always trying to figure out how to get an edge. Having a head coach that was a quarterback, he sees things from your perspective. If we put combinations together that don't make sense to him, he speaks up -- or if he has ideas that 'this might work,' he's going to say something and that's helped our offense evolve."

49ers losing at half to Eagles and now are in danger of going 1 and 3.

Perhaps the shine is now off Kaepernick and completely on Russell Wilson.

by Anonymousreply 29009/28/2014

he 2014 San Francisco 49ers offense is like a box of chocolates. You never know what you’re going to get.

Hate to go all Forrest Gump on you, but that appears to be the offense’s direction after a 26-21 come-from-behind home victory over the Philadelphia Eagles.

A week after San Francisco went with five wide receivers and only handed the ball six times to Frank Gore, the 49ers changed things up and used number 21 early and often.

“This week we had good looks to run the ball and give it to Frank,” Colin Kaepernick said after the franchise’s first regular season win in Levi’s® Stadium. “It was working. He was carrying the ball well. Our offensive line was blocking well. So, we were going to stick with it.”

Gore certainly looked like a load for the Eagles defense. He carried the ball 24 times for 119 yards, averaging 5 yards per carry with a long run of 28 yards. Adding to his effort, Gore caught a 55-yard touchdown pass from Kaepernick on a broken play.

The Eagles dropped eight players into coverage on Gore’s longest touchdown reception of his 10-year career. Kaepernick said the 49ers didn’t have the “ideal situation” to run their original play. So the fourth-year pro improvised, hardly a surprise if you know Kaepernick.

He rolled to his left, saw Gore open in the right flat and launched a cross-body throw to his star running back.

“Oh,” Kaepernick said, “that was a great job by Frank.”

The running back, standing to the left of his quarterback in a postgame press conference interrupted.

“Great job by ‘Kap,’ Gore said.

Kaepernick, who finished the game completing 17-of-30 passes for 218 yards, continued to elaborate on the broken play. Kaepernick also added 58 of the team's 218 rushing yards against Philadelphia.

“He broke the tackle and got into the end zone,” said San Francisco’s quarterback, who doubled his season total with two touchdown passes on the day.

“Putting the ball in 21’s hands is a good thing.”

It certainly was for the 49ers. Gore racked up 174 yards of total offense. The Eagles, on the other hand, were held scoreless on offense and managed 213 yards of offense against a dominant defensive performance by the home team.

If Gore’s output wasn’t the top storyline of the day, perhaps it would be the offense breaking though in the second half with its first touchdown of the year, breaking a six-quarter streak.

“It was just something that we had to do,” said Kaepernick, who completed a 12-yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Stevie Johnson to get the monkey off San Francisco’s back. “We knew we could. We just had to go out and get it done at that point.”

The 49ers got it done in a big way against an undefeated Philadelphia team. In doing so, they proved once again that the team’s power-running attack can still be a force.

“We have a lot of guys that can fit roles with whatever we want to do on offense,” left tackle Joe Staley said. “We knew going in we wanted to control possession and control the clock. That entails running the ball… sustained drives. We did that today. That was one of the game plans going in.”

Will the 49ers stick to the run-control offense or use a pass-heavy attack in coming weeks? It all depends on the game plan and the weakness of the opponent.

Judging by Sunday's important result, it appears as though Kaepernick and the rest of the unit seem more adept at handling such challenges.

SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick thumbed his nose at authority following Sunday's victory by wearing Beats by Dre headphones around his neck after the NFL signed an exclusive agreement with Bose.

And while his headphones were bright pink, purportedly to pay homage to Breast Cancer Awareness, Kaepernick paid for the indiscretion. He said Thursday the league fined him $10,000.

So did Beats, with whom he has an endorsement deal, pay his fine?

"I'm going to let that be unanswered," Kaepernick said

The San Francisco 49ers made franchise history last Thursday night, unveiling a black alternate uniform at the team’s official draft party from Great America. Quarterback Colin Kaepernick, linebacker Navorro Bowman and tight end Vernon Davis joined the festivities to model the uniforms in front of the 15,000 Faithful on-hand.

After the trio of 49ers got off-stage, caught up with each player briefly for their opinions on the new threads and an update on last week's veteran minicamp.

Colin Kaepernick

On the Jerseys:

“I love the jerseys. I think the uniforms look dope and I think everyone is excited to play in them.”

On his draft day memories:

“I remember getting the call in the morning with the Niners talking about trading up to get to me. It was an exciting time, probably one of the best days in my life.”

On how he feels about his offseason:

“I’m real happy to be back out there. I put a lot of work in to be where this team needs me to be. I’m excited to go out on the field and show everyone what I’ve been working on.”

A quick observation of quarterback Colin Kaepernick and how he has played in preparation for the season opener on Sept. 14 against the Minnesota Vikings.

What, Kaepernick worry?

All that was missing was a gap-toothed Alfred E. Neuman grin on Kaepernick’s countenance in the Niners’ locker room following his second consecutive 2-of-5-for-13-yards passing performance Saturday night in Denver.

“There’s not any concern on this team,” Kaepernick said. “That’s what the preseason is for, is to work those things out and see who we have in different positions. So that’s what we’re doing and we’re working to make sure we’re ready for the regular season.”

Fair enough, and Kaepernick likely rebounds in the regular season ... so long as he has some semblance of blocking from his offensive line.

But this assignment was to give a thumbs-up or thumbs down on how he looked through three preseason games and, well, here it is: 5-for-13, 40 yards passing, 0 TDs, 0 INTs, 3 sacks, including a safety.

Thumbs down.

Sure, Kaepernick showed off his breathtaking speed on a pair of long runs at Denver, but those were not designed plays; they came out of necessity when the pocket collapsed around him.

And yes, despite all of his work this offseason to improve his mechanics, touch and accuracy as a pocket passer under Kurt Warner, Kaepernick is probably going to have to run -- a lot -- this season given the fluid situation on the O-line.

Per Pro Football Focus, Kaepernick was pressured on five of his nine dropbacks against the Broncos, going 0-for-2 with two sacks and a scramble on the five plays.

And the right side of the O-line was the biggest culprit -- tackle Erik Pears getting a minus-3.1 grade by PFF on 23 snaps and rookie guard Ian Silberman getting a minus-2.1 grade on 30 snaps (16 in the fourth quarter after he was subbed out late in the first half). Both had minus-1.9 grades in pass blocking.

But of course, this is about Kaepernick and the QB position through three exhibitions.

“It always feels good to be in the open field,” he said. “I feel like that’s where I have the ability to make some plays.”

There just were not enough of them in the preseason.
