Kaepernick talks Boldin, Harvin, Alex Smith and the Super Bowl loss

Mar 11, 2013 at 4:09 PM--




San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick was on ESPN SportsCenter today. He had the following to say.

On Boldin trade to San Francisco:

"He's a great asset. He's a great player. He's another weapon for this team. Any chance we can get the ball in his hands would be great."

On Boldin's Super Bowl ring:

"Hopefully we can get another one for him then. That's what we are working for and hopefully he's another asset to help us get there.

On the Seahawks adding Percy Harvin:

"That's just going to make them a tougher team. I think the NFC West is a very tough division now. It's only getting tougher, so we look forward to a lot of great battles with them."

On how he is recovering from the Super Bowl loss:

"We're back training. We're back at it trying to get ready for next season to make sure we can get that one more win to help us get to the Super Bowl and hopefully get a ring on our finger."

On what they might do differently if they get back to the Super Bowl:

"I think we do the same thing. We'd do it all over again the same way. We just have to go out and perform better on that Sunday so I think getting back there is going to be the toughest thing and then ultimately going out and playing like ourselves."

"We definitely need to get out to faster starts. Something we need to improve on, but ultimately, we just need to go out and make plays."

On the biggest challenge entering 2013:

"The biggest challenge? Just keep doing what we been doing. I think being disciplined in our routine, being disciplined in what we were doing, and trying to keep doing it will be the biggest challenge for us."

On what it will be like without Alex Smith:

"It will be a little bit different. I mean, he was a great teammate. He did a lot of great things that helped me out. He was always making sure I was seeing defenses, seeing rotation, always helping me with the playbook. He'll have a great future in front of him. He'll have a great career. We'll just see what happens."

On the last time he has seen Jim Harbaugh in something other than khakis, a black sweatshirt and cap:

"You know what? I don't think I have ever seen him in anything else other than that. That's just his apparel. I think he has the 50 pairs of khakis and 50 black sweaters [laughs] at the house."

Kaepernick was hesitant to say that the Milwaukee Brewers would have less wins than the San Francisco Giants saying, "I don't like going against the Brewers."

By Rohan Chakravarthi
Oct 12

Another week, another close loss, and another game with multiple missed opportunities for the 49ers. It's been the same narrative during the 49ers' current three-game losing streak, and Sunday's loss to the Arizona Cardinals now puts the team at 2-3 on the season as it heads into its bye week. Huge news came Monday afternoon, as Kyle Shanahan noted that rookie quarterback Trey Lance suffered a left knee sprain and will be out for 1-2 weeks, leaving Nate Sudfeld as the only healthy quarterback currently on the roster. But, we'll get to the future later. First, let's break down Sunday's loss with three areas of needed improvement and four positives that came out of the game.

Golden Nugget Award: 49ers WR Deebo Samuel continues dominating play in loss to Seahawks

Each week, I present the Golden Nugget Award to a San Francisco 49ers player who had an outstanding game or managed to defy the odds. Week 4's award goes to third-year wide receiver Deebo Samuel. The other nominees for this week's award were quarterback Trey Lance for coming off the bench and displaying why the 49ers traded up to the No. 3 overall pick to draft him, defensive ends Dee Ford and Nick Bosa for showing dominance along the defensive line, and running back Trey Sermon for his 19 carries for 89 rushing yards against the Seattle Seahawks. Samuel, whose real name is Tyshun, received the nickname Deebo, the name of the notorious bully from the movie "Friday," from his father Galen, because he always took things away from people as a toddler. The 49ers lost

The San Francisco 49ers got a standout effort from their defense against the undefeated Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, but the offense fell short on too many opportunities to come out of the desert with an upset win. Four turnovers on downs along with an interception from quarterback Trey Lance that led to a touchdown proved to be too much for the 49ers to overcome as they fell 17-10 to the Cardinals at State Farm Stadium in Glendale, Arizona. Lance finished with 192 yards on 15-of-29 passing with 89 yards on 16 carries. Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray threw for 239 yards on 22-of-31 passing with one touchdown and zero interceptions.
