Bucky Brooks explains how Blaine Gabbert can revive his career with 49ers

NFL.com analyst Bucky Brooks discussed why he thinks Blaine Gabbert can get his career re-booted with Chip Kelly. The San Francisco 49ers quarterback competition will move full steam ahead when training camp arrives late next month. Blaine Gabbert benefited from Colin Kaepernick’s rehab process, getting all the first team work in team drills. Kaepernick got some 7-on-7 work in minicamp, but he has a lot of on-field work to do once training camp gets going. Gabbert is likely the early favorite for the starting QB job given his extra time implementing the offense, but once we get a week or...

Jim Harbaugh wears Colin Kaepernick jersey at Michigan’s Sacramento camp

The Jim Harbaugh world tour continues, and Colin Kaepernick is his latest jersey. The Jim Harbaugh Michigan football world tour, and it is in the San Francisco 49ers neck of the woods. Well, sort of. Harbaugh and Michigan are conducting a camp in Sacramento, and the one-time 49ers coach continued his new tradition of wearing a local player’s jersey at the camp. He’s worn a variety of jerseys, and for the Sacramento camp, he went with Colin Kaepernick. Harbaugh recently chatted with MMQB reporter Albert Breer, and said he does not miss the NFL, as it is still right there for him to...

Colin Kaepernick, Camp Taylor conduct another successful fundraiser

The San Francisco 49ers veterans are off doing their own things for the next five weeks until training camp, and for many it involves some kind of charity work or football camp. This weekend, NaVorro Bowman is hosting his Washington, DC-based football camp. And previously Jennifer Chan had some pictures and takeaways from Antoine Bethea’s celebrity softball game. Earlier this week, quarterback Colin Kaepernick had his fourth annual charity fundraiser for Camp Taylor. We’ve discussed his involvement with Camp Taylor in the past, including some great pictures of him with the kids. The...

Golden Nuggets: QB Battle In July

Wednesday, June 22nd, 2016 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from the Internet Blaine Gabbert will enter July’s training camp as the leading candidate for the 49ers starting quarterback position. He remains unchallenged for the role right now due to Colin Kaepernick working his way back from injury. Once training camp starts up though, Colin will be cleared to participate in team drills. During minicamp, he was only able to participate in individual and 7 on 7 drills. When Colin is cleared to participate fully during training camp, then the...

Trade hypothetical: Von Miller to 49ers for Colin Kaepernick, draft picks would be interesting

I see no way this happens, but it’d certainly be fun seeing Von Miller in a 49ers uniform. The NFL offseason provides us with some time to consider endless hypotheticals. And with some big names facing some question marks this season and head into next year’s offseason, why not have a little fun with it? The most notable player facing contract problems right now is Denver Broncos pass rusher Von Miller. The team placed the franchise tag on him, but he has said he will not play under it this season. The two sides reportedly were in agreement on a six year contract worth $114 million in...

Taking a look at Colin Kaepernick with random pass attempt analysis

The Blaine Gabbert posts worked out so well. Let’s take a look at the other 49ers quarterback, Colin Kaepernick. Since I’ve taken it upon myself to do some random analysis of Blaine Gabbert passes and since you folk have suggested that the posts are pretty alright (after I slow down the .gifs, which I’ve tried to do this time — please let me know if that worked or not), I’m going to dive into the murky world of Colin Kaepernick. The one-time San Francisco 49ers franchise quarterback, Kaepernick’s regression wasn’t so much a steady slide as it was a steep drop off the cliff...

Golden Nuggets: Slow day for the 49ers

Sunday, June 19th, 2016 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet. Good morning everyone. Just like that, San Francisco 49ers news has dried up completely and there is only one or two new links for today. But as usual, we’re going to include a few that you might have missed from previous days. Minicamps are starting and ending and Colin Kaepernick isn’t battling Blaine Gabbert yet, so there really isn’t much on the news front. I decided that I would analyze a few random Kaepernick passes as well, in much the same way as I...

Golden Nuggets: Colin’s Most Important Camp

Tuesday, June 14th, 2016 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from the Internet This may be the most important offseason for QB Colin Kaepernick. This offseason and the current upcoming season, Colin will be asked a lot about his happiness in staying in San Francisco and about his rumored failed trade request. He will likely say all the right things. He is working his way back into football shape after dealing with his injuries and surgeries. While working his back to pre-injury form, Colin will need to learn Chip Kelly’s offense. The last couple...

Will we see some fakes with Jeff Driskel as 49ers personal punt protector?

This could make the preseason a little more interesting. The San Francisco 49ers invested a late sixth round pick in quarterback Jeff Driskel, as they continue trying to figure out their quarterback situation. Head coach Chip Kelly had positive things to say about Driskel, but with Blaine Gabbert and Colin Kaepernick the ones competing for the starting job, Driskel will remain a developmental project for the time being. That being said, this does not necessarily mean he will be inactive throughout the 2016 season. Driskel has been getting some work on special teams. He is not working as a...

Golden Nuggets: Waiting for the Colin Kaepernick, Blaine Gabbert battle

Sunday, June 12th, 2016 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet. Good morning everyone. Since it was published later in the day on a Saturday, I’m going to link you guys to the post I put up yesterday taking another look at five random Blaine Gabbert passers. If I have to sit there and write 1,000 words about four incomplete passes and a touchdown, then you jerks are definitely going to read it and comment on it. For the record, I’ve got several of those posts planned and it’s part of a larger look at Gabbert I’m...

Taking a look at 5 more random passes from 49ers QB Blaine Gabbert

This went OK last time. Let’s get five more random passes and see what Blaine Gabbert analysis we can come up with today. San Francisco 49ers quarterback Blaine Gabbert is a much better play than Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Blaine Gabbert. Whether that’s enough for him to beat Colin Kaepernick in a quarterback battle is completely up in the air and frankly, I have no idea what that competition is even going to look like. But I’ve dipped my toe into the “fine, I’ll take Gabbert seriously” pool and think things went well last time so I’ll wade in again. Essentially, I’m...

Colin Kaepernick added contacts for short vision, thus the shaded visor

Earlier this week, I wrote about how Torrey Smith and Colin Kaepernick were among the San Francisco 49ers players who were wearing visors in minicamp. Players can practice in whatever they want, but the NFL requires a player get a doctor’s note and league permission to wear tinted visors during games. They can wear clear visors without specific permission, but tinted visors require permission. At the time, Torrey Smith said he would not be wearing the tinted visor in games, but we weren’t sure what Kaepernick’s plan was. Now we have a better idea of things. Matt Barrows reported...

49ers minicamp recap, Day 3: Field goals, :55 drills, and defense wins the day

We’ve got a full recap of the third and final day of the San Francisco 49ers mandatory minicamp. Day three of San Francisco 49ers mandatory minicamp is over and the players don't have to report back until the end of July. There was a lot of media on hand, national included, knowing that Kaepernick would be addressing the media after practice. Here is what we saw during our last look at the team before the break. Jennifer Lee Chan After several touchdowns by the offense on day two, the defense pulled back ahead to win day three. There were several interceptions,...
