Jim Tomsula discussed lack of preseason audible opportunities for Colin Kaepernick

The San Francisco 49ers apparently have kept things pretty close to the vest in terms of audibles for Colin Kaepernick. We take a look at what Jim Tomsula had to say on the topic. The San Francisco 49ers first team offense struggled to get much of anything going on Saturday. The offensive line struggled, and Colin Kaepernick finished the game 2 of 5 for 13 yards and little time to do much of anything. While it was not pretty, we did learn a little something about the 49ers offensive scheming and planning (or lack thereof). According to Matt Maiocco, after Saturday's game, Kap was...

49ers-Broncos recap: Working through the offensive line issues

49ers continue to try to work out their offensive line woes and produce an unlikely close score. After the San Francisco 49ers spent the week with the Denver Broncos and adjusted to the altitude, they attempted to work out their offensive line issues again. The stats for the first team were challenged at best. In the first quarter, Colin Kaepernick had one passing attempt and was sacked once for a loss of 10 yards. The second quarter wasn't much better. Kaepernick completed two passes at the end of the half to take the passing yard total to zero. Kaepernick did not much time in the pocket,...

Final: Offensive line woes overshadow defensive heroics of NaVorro Bowman, Kenneth Acker

As terrific as NaVorro Bowman looked in his encore, as impressive as first-time starter Kenneth Acker was at cornerback, the 49ers offensive line justified serious concerns about its dependability. Protecting Colin Kaepernick proved too daunting Saturday night, and the line’s… Continue Reading →

Here are the grades for the 49ers’ 19-12 preseason loss to the Denver Broncos. QUARTERBACKS: C+. Give Colin Kaepernick credit for gaining 53 yards on three runs. He still is one heck of a runner.

Colin Kaepernick talks read option, 49ers-Broncos joint practice, Al Pacino and Madden commercial

The San Francisco 49ers quarterback chatted with the media on Wednesday following the team's joint practice with the Denver Broncos.

You can listen to audio here, and view video here. Late last week, EA Sports released a short movie to promote the new Madden 16 video game.

Madden commercial features Colin Kaepernick playing Al Pacino from Scent of a Woman

The folks at EA Sports have apparently decided to get more and more bizarre with their commercials for new Madden games. They released something called "Madden: The Movie", and it features some really weird stuff. You can watch the whole trailer above. Earlier this summer, we saw a random picture from the commercial, and it was hard to figure out what was going on with Colin Kaepernick. The commercial is a movie trailer, and it features a variety of athletes and Rex Ryan playing random characters. Kap is playing Al Pacino's character from Scent of a Woman. I'm not entirely why they...
