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.

Jimmy Garoppolo is expected to be the starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers when the team opens the regular season on September 12 against the Detroit Lions. How long he remains the starter is the question. San Francisco traded up to draft Garoppolo's eventual successor, Trey Lance, at No. 3 overall. He will bring a much different dynamic to head coach Kyle Shanahan's offense. The inexperienced quarterback just needs time to learn and master the playbook and scheme. We asked our 49ers Webzone contributors to predict when Lance will get his first start. Below are the responses in the order in which they were received.

The San Francisco 49ers headed into the offseason with a lot of uncertainty surrounding the roster's future. They exited the 2020 season with nearly 40 players scheduled to become free agents, unrestricted or otherwise, like Trent Williams, Kyle Juszczyk, Jason Verrett, and K'Waun Williams. Those are a lot of potential losses. And, at first, San Francisco seemingly didn't have a lot of salary-cap space to work with. There wasn't a mass exodus or a roster pudge, though, and the 49ers managed to find the money needed to bring back nearly everyone they wanted. There were only a few losses, like wide receiver Kendrick Bourne leaving for the New England Patriots. Linebacker Fred Warner joined 95.7 The Game on Friday and was asked about management's



USA Today predicts 49ers to win NFC West with this record

Nate Davis of USA TODAY released his annual NFL predictions this week, and San Francisco 49ers fans might wonder how the national reporter feels the league's toughest division, the NFC West, will pan out. San Francisco is coming off a disappointing injury-plagued six-win campaign. It was the third losing season in head coach Kyle Shanahan's four years with the team, and the 49ers hope 2020, not their 2019 campaign that ended with a Super Bowl appearance, is the aberration. Most expect the 49ers to be much improved in 2021, assuming the team can stay relatively healthy. San Francisco



Fred Warner feels the 49ers have done a great job informing players about the vaccine

The NFL reportedly informed teams that it would not extend the 18-week season to accommodate a COVID-19 outbreak among unvaccinated players. Last year, there were multiple postponements as the league navigated through the bizarre season amid a pandemic. There will be no rescheduling of games in 2021. The league hopes players will take it upon themselves to get vaccinated and protect themselves and their families as training camps get set to kick off. Should there be an outbreak, the impacted club or clubs could be forced to forfeit, accruing a defeat, and not being paid for the lost game. A team with an outbreak could also be responsible for
