Colin Kaepernick needs to pick up the pace

This is my Thursday column. This is not a criticism of Colin Kaepernick. Yes, he has completed only five passes so far in the preseason. No, he hasn’t played well. But just about every time he drops back to pass he gets swarmed. The offensive line has been bad. The Niners have tried three different […]
