Geep Chryst talks Colin Kaepernick and the regression narrative

A frequent discussion point about Colin Kaepernick is the issue of regression. His new offensive coordinator had a discussion about that recently in an interview with the San Jose Mercury News. The San Francisco 49ers return to training camp means we will start to hear more from head coach Jim Tomsula, offensive coordinator Geep Chryst, and defensive coordinator Eric Mangini. Tomsula will be managing everything on the team, but given his defensive background, it seems likely that Chryst gets a bit more leeway in how he handles the offense. These press conferences are not exactly...

So the offensive struggles falls on him. A couple of links today talked about Colin's struggles in the 4th quarter last season. He was the 1st quarterback in 2 decades to not...

Colin Kaepernick Marvel Comics

Colin Kaepernick vs. Tom Brady in fantasy football, with a twist

It's not as simple as Kap vs. Brady, so based on the league details, what do you think? I find myself in an intriguing fantasy football situation, and I thought I would share it with you all. It involves a decision between Colin Kaepernick and Tom Brady, but there is a bit of a twist. I am in a keeper league where we are allowed to keep one player drafted in the sixth round or later. The league gives ALL touchdowns six points, including passing touchdowns. This past year, I drafted Tom Brady in the 6th round and Colin Kaepernick in the 9th round. I think there was some kind of injury issue...

Kurt Warner on Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers offense

I take a look at some enlightening comments that Kurt Warner made recently. A couple of days ago, Kurt Warner gave an excellent interview. We posted a transcript here - and that spawned a really interesting discussion about all things Colin Kaepernick in the comments, including his mental aptitude to handle a complex offense. I thought it might be nice to hone in a bit more on a few remarks that Warner made - remarks that are maybe a tad unrealistic about what sort of offense Kaepernick should be in this season, but I think are actually quite reassuring. Warner argues that the San...

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

Breaking down the 90 players on the 49ers offseason roster in 90 posts (over 90 or so days). Today we focus on 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 Fooch is a crazy person who manages this blog...

Kurt Warner with more on Colin Kaepernick development

Kurt Warner was on 95.7 The Game on Tuesday, and had a chance to talk about Colin Kaepernick's development. He discussed what they worked on, and what to look for this fall. We've got a transcript, and you can listen to the audio HERE. Former NFL quarterback Kurt Warner has been in the news this offseason for his work with San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Naturally this has resulted in multiple interviews. I went back through the NN archives, and came across Warner interviews in January, March (part 1, part 2), and April. Now we're back with a detailed discussion with...

Colin Kaepernick on 49ers: 'I feel people are writing us off, but for us, that’s all right.'

Colin Kaepernick had another opportunity to address questions about the 49ers turnover this offseason. He remains confident. The San Francisco 49ers are high on the list of teams many people expect to struggle in 2015. It is not surprising then that 49ers players get plenty of questions about the turnover and the questions as they finish up their offseason. Colin Kaepernick is going to get as many questions as anybody, and it was no different this past weekend. Kap was the keynote speaker at the Nevada Governor's Dinner, which is an event to raise money for athletic programs at the...

Golden Nuggets: Colin Kaepernick Optimistic About Season

49ers links for Monday, July 13, 2015. Colin Kaepernick was a guest speaker at a recent function in Nevada, and he put the changes this offseason for the 49ers in a positive light. There's no question that most of us saw this offseason as somewhat of a circus. However, Colin's role now as team leader puts him in a position to motivate others around him in spite of seemingly bad occurrences happening. I don't wanna say he is wrong or delusional, but he is right in the middle of everything happening with the team so the fact that he sees more good that bad taking place is definitely a step in...
