Scouting the enemy camps

Let's take a look at what happened around the NFL last week. Cleveland: Brian Hoyer and Johnny Manziel were both unimpressive on Monday against Washington, combining to go 9 of 22 for 81 yards and one touchdown. The highlight of the Browns' night was Manziel flicking off the Redskins sideline in a display of anger. Cornerback Buster Skrine is week-to-week with after undergoing thumb surgery. San Francisco: Coach Jim Harbaugh has put his support behind Blaine Gabbert, McLeod Bethel-Thompson and Josh Johnson after the three combined to be outscored 56-3 in two games. Alex Boone is still...

Blaine Gabbert struggles in second preseason appearance with the 49ers

Former Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert struggled again Sunday in his second preseason appearance with the San Francisco 49ers. He played three series after starter Colin Kaepernick played two series in the first quarter and completed 8 of 14 passes for 40 yards and a 32.4 quarterback rating and had one long pass intercepted in the 49ers 34-0 loss to the Denver Broncos. read more

After his second straight sour outing, Blaine Gabbert didn't agonize over his unproductive play as much as he did his final snap, which yielded a third-quarter interception.

Golden Nuggets: Jim Harbaugh apparently really likes Blaine Gabbert

Saturday, August 16, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web. Good morning everyone.The 49ers open up Levi's Stadium on Sunday against the Broncos and it should be awesome. Not the game mind you. I'm sure it will be almost unwatchable after Kap exits. Maybe one preseason game isn't enough time to learn to loath severely dislike a player, but I might be approaching that point with Blaine Gabbert. I hated severely disliked him as a prospect in 2011, and had no idea why everyone seemed to be in love with him. Nobody really knew who Aldon Smith...

49ers notes: Harbaugh supports Gabbert, Lattimore not ready, Crabtree feeling better

There will be no shakeup when it comes to the 49ers’ quarterback rotation Sunday against the Denver Broncos, Jim Harbaugh said Friday. Blaine Gabbert will be the second quarterback to enter the game, just as he was in the preseason opener in Baltimore.

Harbaugh ‘very pleased’ with QB Blaine Gabbert

After posting a 1.7 passer rating, Blaine Gabbert is still No. 2. Jim Harbaugh said he expected Gabbert to be the first quarterback off the bench Sunday when the 49ers host the Broncos in the first game at Levi’s Stadium.

Blaine Gabbert remains the No. 2 QB for 49ers-Broncos

Blaine Gabbert remains the No. 2 QB for 49ers-Broncos

The 49ers backup quarterback position is in flux as far as fans are concerned. Maybe Jim Harbaugh has mostly made his decision at this point. The San Francisco 49ers head into their second preseason game with question marks surrounding the quarterback position. Not THAT quarterback position. While Colin Kaepernick is the starter for years to come, the backup spot is in a bit of a bind. Blaine Gabbert looked abysmal last Thursday, Josh Johnson showed some things, but was still a bit limited, and McLeod Bethel-Thompson did nothing to really justify a move up the chart. Jim Harbaugh told the...

Jim Harbaugh says there's competition for Blaine Gabbert's backup QB spot

Jim Harbaugh says there's competition for Blaine Gabbert's backup QB spot

Blaine Gabbert, as it turns out, is not overburdened with job security. This isn't hot off the presses or anything, but just in case you missed it: San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said that the backup quarterback job is up for grabs, in so many words. That was following the brutal 23-3 loss at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens, in which Blaine Gabbert stunk the place up something fierce. I was very surprised during Thursday's game ... not that Gabbert did bad, but that so many people were expecting better from him. I'll admit that I thought maybe Harbaugh could do something with...

Backup QB questions arise from blowout loss in Baltimore

BALTIMORE – Preseason games often help teams answer unresolved depth-chart issues, but the 49ers emerged from their exhibition opener with a potentially pressing question: Do they need a new backup plan? If second-string quarterback Blaine Gabbert’s performance Thursday night was a preview of coming attractions, the answer would be in the affirmative. In his first game with the 49ers – a 23-3 loss to the Ravens — Gabbert relieved Colin Kaepernick after one series and offered evidence his offseason change of scenery didn’t change much. In four scoreless series, Gabbert completed 3 of...

49ers vs. Ravens: Blaine Gabbert was brutal, Josh Johnson had some positives

It was not a pretty performance for backup quarterback Blaine Gabbert. We take a look at the evening that was for him, and the other backup quarterbacks. The San Francisco 49ers opened their preseason with a loss to the Baltimore Ravens, and it was a forgettable evening for Blaine Gabbert. The 49ers backup quarterback played part of the first quarter, and all of the second quarter, finishing 3 of 11 for 20 yards, with one interception. I think the best way to sum up Gabbert's evening is with this: At one point, he was 3 of 10 for 20 yards and an interception, giving him a QB rating of 0.0....
