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.

Iron sharpens iron. While Trent Williams named Nick Bosa and a formidable defensive line as one of his many reasons for wanting to join the San Francisco 49ers, Bosa is looking forward to facing the team's new offensive tackle. That hasn't happened yet. NFL players can't work together in an official capacity due to the COVID-19 pandemic. They can't even enter team facilities. Some have tried to take part in player-organized workouts. The NFLPA recently advised against that practice with the virus popping up among several teams,

ESPN's Field Yates named five win-win NFL trades on Thursday morning, all while noting that such deals are unlikely. NFL trades, in general, are rare compared to other leagues, but the ESPN insider went ahead with the task anyway. The San Francisco 49ers were involved in one of the hypothetical trades, and it involved shipping off the team's second-round pick from 2018 — wide receiver Dante Pettis. Who would the Niners get in return? The Houston Texans' fourth-round selection from the same year, wide receiver Keke Coutee. "Coutee -- taken in the 2018 draft, like Pettis -- provides San

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk is very committed to his stance on San Francisco 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan's parting words from an interview for this past week's State of the Francisco event. "I know we were good enough to win that Super Bowl, and we didn't," Shanahan said. "And that's something we've got to live with. And that's why the state of the franchise, right now, is we've got to get right back to that moment. We've got to get right back to that fourth quarter, and get to have a lead, and we've got to finish the job." It's that last part that irked Florio and was the focus of two video discussions, one with Chris Simms, and the
