Kurt Warner on Colin Kaepernick: Defenses ‘have caught up’

Oct 9, 2015 at 10:28 PM--


NFL Analyst Kurt Warner was on the phone on the Rich Eisen show and discussed the apparent regression of San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick.

Warner, a former Super Bowl champion and Super Bowl MVP with the St. Louis Rams, helped work with Kaepernick during the offseason to improve his quarterback mechanics and play.

"I think you have to get to a certain point for us to say 'regressing,'" explained Warner. "When he came in, he was so dynamic with his feet ... Defenses didn't really understand what to do with it ... Teams have caught up," Warner added.

Warner explained that opposing teams are saying, "Now we are going to force these guys to read coverages and decipher things."

Warner and Kaepernick have not talked during the season. When Eisen brought up Kaepernick's large contract, Warner said, "We give these quarterbacks these huge contracts now, well before they've fully proven they can be that guy week in and week out."

Colin Kaepernick and the 49ers face the New York Giants on Sunday at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. Kickoff is at 5:30 PM PT.

This is Trey Lance's first training camp as a starting NFL quarterback. He spent last season as a backup to Jimmy Garoppolo, starting just two games during his rookie campaign.

"Great kid," Warner told Eisen. "I never had met him before. I'd heard some great things. It was great just talking to him both off camera and on camera. Talking to everybody throughout the organization, [they are] really excited to have him as their leader. Not a knock on



49ers LB Fred Warner explains why being irritating at practice is a good thing

Fred Warner has been getting on the nerves of some of his 49ers teammates recently, but it's all being done in preparation for what's to come during the regular season. Warner was singled out earlier this week by wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk as being "irritating" during practice. Warner told Aiyuk in the locker room ahead of practice that he was going to be talking some smack that day, but he still seemed to get under Aiyuk's skin a little bit. "He told me what type of time it is in the locker room earlier today, so I can't be mad at him," Aiyuk said. "We're all competitors. That defense is the best defense in the National Football League, so that's
