Colin Kaepernick says he has a great appreciation for the 49ers

Jan 1, 2017 at 5:34 PM--


San Francisco 49ers starting quarterback Colin Kaepernick spoke to the media following the team's Week 17 loss to the Seattle Seahawks and shared some of his thoughts regarding head coach Chip Kelly, the news that he would likely be fired, and the team as a whole.

Kaepernick was asked what his thoughts are regarding the likelihood that general manager Trent Baalke, who has confirmed that he has been fired, and Kelly would not return in 2017. "That's above me," Kaepernick said. "That's not something that I have a decision or input on.

"I will say that I appreciate Chip and what he's done as far as coming to work every day and making sure this tear stays focused and being resilient (during) not very good circumstances as far as how our team was playing, win-loss record-wise. So I do appreciate the fact that he came in every day, worked his tail off to make sure that this team was prepared."

"I have a great appreciation for this organization," Kaepernick continued. "Jed [York] and Paraag [Marathe], have a good relationship with them. A lot of things to think about moving forward and we'll see where this goes."

"My relationship this year was much improved from years past with Jed, Paraag," Kaepernick continued. "I think we have a great relationship now and I was excited about that. I was excited about this organization as a whole, teammates playing hard regardless of the circumstances, and coming to work every day and preparing to win regardless of what position we were put in."

Kaepernick has likely played his last game with the 49ers, the team that drafted him. While Kaepernick said that he has not yet had a chance to decide on his options, it is widely believed that he will void the remainder of his contract and become a free agent.

Jimmy Garoppolo will start on Sunday night when the San Francisco 49ers host the division-rival Los Angeles Rams. The quarterback hopes for a better performance than his Week 5 outing against the Miami Dolphins when he threw two interceptions before being benched at halftime. Of course, it was his first game back from a high-ankle sprain, and the injury was still affecting Garoppolo. General manager John Lynch said Friday morning that it looked like Garoppolo was affected by a hit from a defender early in the matchup. "It didn't look right (after that)," Lynch said via the KNBR interview. "And I think that affected his ability to rotate and throw the ball

Kyle Shanahan says Jimmy Garoppolo has looked good in practice, is expected to help 49ers vs. Rams

Head coach Kyle Shanahan sounds confident that Jimmy Garoppolo's next outing will be better than his last. Hindered by his ankle injury, the quarterback was pulled after two quarters this past Sunday in the Niners' embarrassing 43-17 loss to the Miami Dolphins. "Jimmy threw it good in warmups. He threw it good on the Thursday and Friday of practice (last week)," Shanahan said on KNBR's Tolbert, Krueger & Brooks show. "But when you do have a high-ankle sprain, that [can] come back in a game. And he got sacked a few times before that, and he started to throw it a little bit differently. You could tell it was affecting him a little bit. That's why I do think it affected a number of his throws after that. "And the way the game was going, and when I could

Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo joined KNBR on Wednesday morning as the San Francisco 49ers prepare to head on the road to face his former squad, the New England Patriots. Garoppolo spent his first three-and-a-half NFL seasons there learning behind future Hall of Famer Tom Brady under the tutelage of Bill Belichick. The Patriots head coach spoke with 49ers reporters on Monday and praised Garoppolo. "I mean, he's a quality player," Belichick said on a conference call. "The 49ers gave him a high contract that, you know, reflected their confidence in him going forward to lead their team, won the NFC Championship last year behind him. So, I think that all speaks for itself." During Wednesday's radio interview, Garoppolo was asked about Belichick's comments
