Midseason report card: Top-3 49ers

Who are the top-3 players on the 49ers so far this season? Here’s my list and I’d like to read yours’ as well.

1. Colin Kaepernick. The No.3 rated quarterback on ESPN’s QBR system behind only Peyton Manning and Philip Rivers. ESPN’s QBR systems also says Kaepernick’s last two starts have been two of the best starts ever by a quarterback.

2. Vernon Davis. The key to the 49ers’ offense. Without Davis, the Niners’ offense would not be difficult to stop. Davis missed Week 3 with a hamstring injury and the Colts held the 49ers to just 7 points. Davis has been a serious big-play threat, averaging 17.9 yards per catch – best among tight ends.

3. Joe Staley. The best run-blocker and the pass-protector on the team. He has given up just two sacks, one hit and seven hurries this season.

  1. SportCircle came about as the realisation of a dream of a few people who took this saying a little too seriously. A band of people who insisted on always opening up a newspaper starting from the back pages.
