San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick spoke to reporters following practice today and is looking forward to trying to get the team's third victory, his second as a starting quarterback, of the season. The 49ers will host the Seattle Seahawks in their 2016 season finale on New Year's Day at Levi's Stadium.

"It's just always a different feeling coming off of a win," Kaepernick said. "You see what it takes to win. You see what you did right and you have things to build on going into this week. So I think we have a good opportunity this week to come out and try to get another win."

Kaepernick went on to say that the victory renourished the love of winning that he has. "It had been a long time since we had that feeling," he continued. "To get a win and get it that way was huge for this team. It kind of sets a standard for us now that we can look at and say, 'Okay, this is what it took for us to win this week? We have to hold ourselves to this standard and above.'"

Kaepernick also discussed the Seahawks team that he will face on Sunday. "They've kept a lot of their core players," he said. "You see a lot of similar faces, familiar faces on defense. They run their defense. They run it very well. They know exactly what they're doing over there and they're very successful. They win a lot of one-on-one matchups, things like that. That's something we have to be prepared for."


Kaepernick led a fourth quarter comeback against the Rams in Los Angeles on Saturday. After not doing much of anything for most of the game and trailing by 14, the 49ers came storming back for the 22-21 road victory. Kaepernick finished the game 28 of 38 passing for 266 yards and two touchdowns. He had a passer rating of 99.2, his second-highest of the season.

While the 49ers are still considered the class of the NFC West, with little concern about being dethroned, Battista wonders how much the Rams have improved over the offseason. We might get an answer quickly, as the 49ers and Rams are set to face off at SoFi Stadium in Week

49ers LB Fred Warner: Super Bowl win not a matter of 'if' but 'when'

By David Bonilla
May 22

Fred Warner is confident that his moment will come. He believes the San Francisco 49ers remain one of the best teams in the NFL, and it's only a matter of time before they hoist the Vince Lombardi Trophy. It's been over three months since Warner and his teammates experienced the heartbreak of the overtime loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVIII. Speaking to NFL Network's Steve Wyche and Judy Battista, the star linebacker admits he isn't quite over that loss. In fact, he isn't even over the Super Bowl defeat he suffered four years ago. "Those things stay with you," Warner said. "In this league, you earn scars. Throughout the league, you face adversity. Losing the Super Bowl, of course, is as big of an adversity that you can hit, and it stays with you

Staley joined head coach Kyle Shanahan's staff and will serve as the assistant head coach of the San Francisco 49ers.

The San Francisco 49ers hold defensive back Deommodore Lenoir in high regard. The team values versatility, and Lenoir has demonstrated to his coaches that he can be relied upon in various roles throughout the secondary. Whether lining up inside or outside, Lenoir's adaptability and consistent performance have made him an invaluable asset to the defense. 49ers defensive backs coach Daniel Bullocks believes Lenoir made a significant mental jump as a player last season, and the analytics back that up. Lenoir's 75.8 overall grade and 74.3 coverage grade from Pro Football Focus were career highs. Opposing quarterbacks had an 86.9 passer rating when throwing his way. "I say, mentally, he made his biggest jump [last year]," Bullocks told reporters last week. "I think
