Kaepernick’s understudy

Who will back up Colin Kaepernick next season? Probably not Blaine Gabbert or Josh Johnson, a couple of free-agent retreads the 49ers should not re-sign.

Where does loss rank in Sharks’ flubs?

Saturday night’s Stadium Series outdoor game at Levi’s Stadium in Santa Clara was as expected the third best attended NHL game all-time. The 70,205 fans on hand at the 49ers’ sparkling facility served as the site the most people to watch a game west of the Mississippi and, of course, tops in the state of California.

Unfortunately for the franchise, a loss on the ice was the only downer of the day. And considering the magnitude of the event, that...
