49ers schedule features average QB of Andy Dalton in ESPN analysis

The 49ers face a tough schedule, and now we have a QB comparison for the schedule. Every year, ESPN’s Mike Sando puts together a tier ranking of NFL quarterbacks, surveying 42 “league insiders,” including GMs, head coaches, offensive and defensive coordinators, position coaches, and other talent evaluators. QBs are ranked out in five tiers. No quarterback received enough votes to fall into the fifth tier. It is no surprise then that Colin Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert are in tier four, right next to each other at 29 and 30. This year, Sando added something new after creating the...

Golden Nuggets: Bring on the Broncos

Your San Francisco 49ers links for Saturday, August 20th 2016 Given everything that happened in the first preseason game, it will be interesting to see if we get anything different from Blaine Gabbert on his second outing. His first preseason game was awful and he looked like he was back in Jacksonville. Nothing like the progress displayed in his half-season playing in the Geep Chryst offense. Even with Colin Kaepernick out, Gabbert is playing himself out of a job with another performance like that. Beyond that. I don’t care if it’s preseason. It’s just nice to have some football on...

Can Chip Kelly’s San Francisco 49ers offense move the ball against the Denver Broncos defense?

David Fucillo from Niners Nation shares his insights on the San Francisco 49ers with Mile High Report. We got to ask some questions with ninersnation.com to get some insights on the San Francisco 49ers as we prepare to watch them go head to head with the Denver Broncos tomorrow night.

Can his career be salvaged? It's a complicated relationship, to say the least. Some folks think he's a bum, some think he's a decent...

Golden Nuggets: Colin Kaepernick to miss another preseason game

Friday, August 19, 2016 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet. Once again, we've got news that Colin Kaepernick won't be playing in a preseason game, which is super disappointing. I was hoping for an actual quarterback battle, but I doubt there will be much he can do with two fewer games than Gabbert at the very worst. Chip Kelly will want to name a starter sooner rather than later and of course, there have always been the whispers that he preferred Gabbert from the start. We'll never know if those whispers were true or if...

The collection of quarterbacks for Saturday’s 49ers-Broncos game are ... not good

The Denver Broncos will roll out Trevor Siemian with the 1s on Saturday. The six QBs in this game are serious question marks The Denver Broncos announced on Thursday that Trevor Siemian will get the start on Saturday when they face the Denver Broncos. Mark Sanchez got the start last week and looked pretty solid, but the team likely wants to see what Siemian can do with the first team offense before making a decision for Week 1. With news that Colin Kaepernick will not play on Sunday, the quarterback depth charts currently looks as follows for Saturday’s game: 49ers 1. Blaine Gabbert2....
