Colin Kaepernick: We have a good opportunity to try to get another win

Dec 27, 2016 at 1:50 PM--


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.

Cowherd explains why Deshaun Watson isn't a good fit for the 49ers

Imagining Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson running head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense is enough to make fans giddy and willing to watch the team risk giving up years of top draft picks. How about the idea of seeing Watson hitting San Francisco 49ers receivers Deebo Samuel and Brandon Aiyuk in stride or making things happen by improvising when a defense takes away his offensive weapons? A Watson-49ers marriage may never come to fruition, but it is fun to talk about, and the media sure has enjoyed discussing the possibility. However, Colin Cowherd is not among those who feel the fit is as perfect as others assume. Last week, the FS1 host of The Herd with Colin

Hall of Fame wide receiver turned analyst Michael Irvin joins Bay Area radio every week to discuss all things football. So, of course, 95.7 The Game's Damon Bruce had to ask Irvin about the possibility of the San Francisco 49ers adding a dynamic and exciting player like quarterback Deshaun Watson. Watson is not happy with the Houston Texans, which has led to speculation that the quarterback could request a trade. Naturally, that means nearly every fanbase that feels Watson would be an upgrade over their team's current quarterback situation is creating online chatter about a trade. "I had already heard about all of the mess that was going on inside of Houston, but I thought no way, no way it would get to this place," Irvin told Bruce, Ray Ratto, and Matt
