Golden Nuggets: Everyone weighs in on Kap v Gabbert

Your San Francisco 49ers links for Saturday, July 23rd 2016 Well, it looks like the epic trifecta of the Colin Kaepernick/Blaine Gabbert quarterback battle has been completed. Jim Harbaugh, Jerry Rice, and Steve Young have all given their opinions on what may happen as the upcoming starter. All have good points. I think we’ll see both of them this season. Whether by injury, play, or just a sample of each on gameday, I see this quarterback battle spilling into the regular season unresolved. Both QBs aren’t terrible and things could be worse. A lot worse. We’ll see what happens....

Jim Harbaugh thinks Chip Kelly will do great, guesses Colin Kaepernick will be 49ers starting QB

Jim Harbaugh is enjoying a golf tournament up at Lake Tahoe, and it’s no surprise he got questions about Chip Kelly and Colin Kaepernick. The annual American Century Celebrity Golf Championship is underway in Lake Tahoe, and Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh is on hand to play some golf, and otherwise take a break from the college recruiting grind. The celebrities on hand do plenty of media during the event, and it is no surprise the one-time San Francisco 49ers head coach got a couple questions about the team. I’ve embedded the video down below. After talking about his Wolverines,...

49ers roster breakdowns, 90-in-90: QB Colin Kaepernick

Breaking down the 90 players on the 49ers offseason roster in 90 posts (over 90 or so days). We move on to quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Each year, we run a series of post called "90-in-90" here at Niners Nation. The idea is that we'll take a look at every single player on the roster, from the very bottom to the top and break them down a few different ways. This is to help give everyone a basic understanding of a roster. Of course, this roster will change, and some days we'll have more than one so it's not strictly one per day but you get the idea. Tracy and Steph are here to discuss San...

Wednesday, July 20th, 2016 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from the Internet “Heck of a competition”. Those were the words used by Carolina Panthers coach Ron Rivera when discussing the quarterback competition that the 49ers will be having this training camp.

Ron Rivera thinks Blaine Gabbert-Colin Kaepernick will be ‘heck of a competition’

Ron Rivera has some experience with both quarterbacks. I wouldn’t expect negative comments, but it’s still something to consider. Most NFL teams report back for training camp later next week, which means players and coaches are getting their last bits of vacation in before it all picks back up. Carolina Panthers head coach Ron Rivera was in Truckee this past weekend for the eighth annual Upshaw Memorial Golf Classic. 49ers beat writer Cam Inman was in town for the event and had a chance to chat with Rivera about the 49ers quarterback situation. Rivera has plenty of experience with both...

John Clayton NFL predictions includes 49ers potentially getting DeShaun Watson in 2017 NFL Draft

John Clayton sees a bad season in store for the 49ers, but thinks there could be a silver lining. ESPN put together their future power rankings earlier this week, and it is no surprise they ranked the San Francisco 49ers pretty low (No. 31). They followed up those rankings with 30 predictions for the next three years by John Clayton, and that low ranking likely impacted Clayton’s 49ers prediction. He had this to say about the 49ers: Blaine Gabbert will begin the 2016 season as the San Francisco 49ers starting quarterback, but Colin Kaepernick will get some starts at some point. The 49ers...

Hey, what do you know, another ranking that has the 49ers quarterbacks near the bottom. Pro Football Focus is making their way across each position and ranking all 32 teams. On Monday, they released their quarterback rankings, and it is no surprise the San Francisco 49ers end up near the bottom. PFF ranked them No. 31, with only the New York Jets ranked worse. PFF listed Blaine Gabbert as the starter and Colin Kaepernick as the backup. They then had this analysis for the position group: Key stat: 2015 was by far the best season of Blaine Gabbert’s career, and still saw him grade below...

Mike Nolan on Colin Kaepernick, Chip Kelly in 2016

The former San Francisco 49ers head coach weighed in on the 49ers QB and coach situation on NFL Network. Here’s what he had to say. Former San Francisco 49ers head coach Mike Nolan has become a regular on NFL Network lately, and naturally, he gets plenty of questions about his former team. Last week, he was part of a roundtable discussing the top training camp storylines to watch. When his turn came up, he was asked which of the six new coaching hires presents the most interesting storylines. His choice was Chip Kelly. He started with this quick discussion about Colin Kaepernick and the...

What critics fail to grasp about Chip Kelly’s offense

Atlanta Falcons v San Francisco 49ersColin Kaepernick #7 and Blaine Gabbert #2 provide Chip Kelly with a run threat. (Photo by Ezra Shaw/)When 49ers coach Chip Kelly left Philadelphia, the efficacy of his offense was still very much in question, with many believing that NFL defenses are too quick and powerful for Kelly’s fast-paced but simplified scheme. However, what many analysts fail to realize – including Kelly’s harshest critic, NFL network’s Heath Evans – is that Kelly has yet to coach a running quarterback in the NFL. Both Nick Foles and Sam Bradford, his quarterbacks with...

Golden Nuggets: Not much happening with 49ers

Friday, July 8th, 2016 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet. Good morning everyone. The San Francisco 49ers aren't up to much as it's the offseason, as much as we may want something to take our minds off what is happening outside of football. Whatever the case ...

One link has Colin Kaepernick and other players speaking out about the recent shootings and I urge you all to read what has been said thus far. But if you want to read about football...
