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 […]

Colin Kaepernick: “We’ve been able to run the ball very well. So, I think that will be a strength for us.”

This is the transcript of quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s Tuesday press conference, courtesy of the 49ers’ P.R. department. How are you gaging the progress of the offense at this point in the preseason? “It’s going well. Working hard. Making sure everybody’s doing what they need to do to get ready for this season.”   What’s happening […]

49ers’ third exhibition may answer questions…or not

This is my Saturday column. The 49ers’ preseason game Saturday against the Denver Broncos almost matters. It’s the third preseason game, the dress rehearsal. Both teams’ starters probably will play the entire first half so they can get in rhythm and feel confident for the regular season. Here are the top-three things to watch about […]

Love this game... - Dale

49ers get smarter in the passing game

This is my Saturday column. Some say the 49ers suffered a damaging blow when the NFL suspended their No. 3 receiver, Jerome Simpson, for the first six games of 2015. Some say they showed no football wisdom in signing him, a player likely to be suspended. I say forget Jerome Simpson. His absence will have […]

49ers training camp report: Day 15

SANTA CLARA – Here are the highlights from the 49ers’ first half-speed non-padded practice of training camp, which lasted an hour and 20 minutes. The first-team offense and first-team defense never faced each other during team drills – both units faced scout teams only. Apparently this is how Friday practices will function during the regular […]

He will go to IR for whatever reason.... - Allan

49ers training camp report: Day 14

SANTA CLARA – Here are the highlights of the 49ers’ fifth non-padded practice of training camp. THE GOOD 1. TE Vernon Davis. One of those days no one could cover him. Made seven catches during team drills, and scored a touchdown against safety Jimmie Ward during one-on-one drills in the red zone. Ward jumped to […]

49ers training camp report: Day 13

SANTA CLARA – Here are the highlights of the 49ers’ ninth padded practice of training camp. THE GOOD 1. OLB Aaron Lynch. Started at left outside linebacker in the first-string base defense and at left defensive end in the first-string sub-packages. Today was only Lynch’s second day of team drills, and he already seems to […]

Colin Kaepernick: “I’m excited about our offensive line and what they bring to the table.”

SANTA CLARA — Colin Kaepernick spoke in the 49ers’ auditorium Wednesday. Here’s a transcript, courtesy of the 49ers’ P.R. department. Just your thoughts on the opening game, how it went and what you’re looking forward to this week? “I think there was a lot of good things that happened for us in that game. Also […]

Thats fine with me. The cornier the better. I bet Logan could come up with some whoppers.... - sebnynah

49ers training camp report: Day 12

SANTA CLARA – Here are the highlights of the 49ers’ eighth padded practice of training camp. THE GOOD 1. RB Reggie Bush. Didn’t play during Saturday’s preseason game against the Texans, and may not play at all during the preseason – the coaches seem to want to keep him healthy. But, from the looks of […]

Brother Tuna, No, maybe, no - I owe money to Marco, not Guido, I don't want to talk about it, how did you know about... - exgolfer

49ers-Texans preview, what you need to be watching

This is my Saturday column. Hits. That’s the main difference between preseason and training camp. In training camp players don’t hit each other — they play a slightly rougher version of two-hand touch. Coaches can’t learn much about their running game or their defense’s ability to tackle during this portion of the offseason. That’s what […]

The defense at times looked like it was thinking too much....... - Razoreater

Colin Kaepernick 2.0, an assessment of the changes

Here is my Friday column. SANTA CLARA – Through two weeks of training camp, it’s clear Colin Kaepernick has changed three key aspects of his game. Here’s what’s good and not so good about each change so far. CHANGE 1: Kaepernick is throwing with more touch. THE GOOD: Kaepernick used to throw every pass the […]

49ers training camp report: Day 11

SANTA CLARA – Here are the highlights of the 49ers’ seventh padded practice of training camp. THE GOOD 1. S Jaquiski Tartt. Played free safety for the second-team defense and picked off Colin Kaepernick during seven on sevens. On that play, Kaepernick stared down his intended target, Vernon Davis, who was running a post route. […]
