Latest On Colin Kaepernick, 49ers

Colin Kaepernick, who has yet to attempt a pass in 2016, has made headlines for unexpected reasons this season. Kaepernick could soon be getting attention for football reasons once again, but that won’t happen until he gets healthy, coach Chip Kelly told reporters today (Twitter links via team account and Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group). Colin Kaepernick

Kaepernick needs to “continue to work on the physical aspects” and get into better game shape to move up from the No. 2 job, according to Kelly. The coach went on to say that he is the No. 2 QB because he’s not at 100%, which strongly implies that he would have the role over Gabbert if he were healthy.

No. 7 helped lead the 49ers to a Super Bowl berth and a place in the NFC title game in his first year and a half as a starter. However, in 2014, his play began to trend downward. Last year, Blaine Gabbert wound up as San Francisco’s starter, but his early season struggles have put his starting job in jeopardy. If Kaepernick can demonstrate that he is in football shape, he could be the main man under center once again.

    Regardless if it’s Kaep or Gabbert, this team is in DESPERATE need of a QB. Is expect them to dump Kaep this offseason (he is not worth keeping around for any reason), draft a QB early and sign a veteran FA QB. What a mess. The GM brought it all on himself though. Harbaugh should have been the one to keep his job, look at what he’s done in Michigan and look at what the 49ers have done since he left.

    Legit question: can he still fit into a helmet with hair that big?

    His head in general is to big. He is to self indulgent with his radical beliefs. He don’t care about the TEAM. He is all about himself.

        thanks for throwing in your 2 cents tsolid. kneeling during the national isnt doing anything to help his cause and is more likely his way of acting out because he is not the starter and was asking to be traded earlier this season. if any of these players black or white or whatever ethnicity. how about by hitting the streets of Chicago and helping those 82 people shot weekly. giving their extra cash to charitys is easy when thay are making that kind of money and you know as well as I that that money is lining some CEO’s pocket. dont throw out the race card in here. by you using it just proves that you are

            Skol72 – don’t waste your time with ignorant fools. If he supports Kap (like the white people who raised him) and hates white people, that’s his problem. He’s a race baiting fool.

            IGNORANT?? At least “I” can READ! Please point me to ONE article where Kap says he hates White people, Einstein.
