Colin Kaepernick’s mechanics need a trip to the garage

This is my Saturday column. Colin Kaepernick isn’t huge on mechanics. He said so on Wednesday. This revelation shouldn’t come as a surprise to anyone who has ever seen him play. Kaepernick is one of the most inconsistent quarterbacks in the NFL. His college coach, Chris Ault, broke down Kaepernick’s inconsistencies last week to […]

49ers’ NaVorro Bowman a shell of his former self

This is my Wednesday column. SANTA CLARA NaVorro Bowman is not good anymore. This is the saddest story on the San Francisco 49ers. It’s painful to watch this proud warrior play like a scrub. Bowman used to be the Niners’ best player. When they would use their “dime” defense — six defensive backs and one […]
