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.

The following video captures Warner's raw emotional response after Greenlaw was carted off the field, revealing the profound anguish experienced by the star linebacker, even as teammate Nick Bosa attempted to console him.

Fred Warner confident Super Bowl win is in 49ers' future

By David Bonilla
Feb 13

Disappointment pervaded the San Francisco 49ers locker room on Tuesday, less than 48 hours after the team's gut-wrenching Super Bowl defeat. Many players struggled to discuss the game with reporters. An emotional Brandon Aiyuk even had to end his conversation early, with the wide receiver no longer able to respond to questions. Linebacker Fred Warner, typically smiling for the media, understandably appeared deflated as he tried his best to field questions. "I'm just disappointed because we had more than enough opportunities to go and take it," Warner said. "Like we talked about, Super Bowls aren't given. You've got to take them in the moments where they're there, and we

Klint Kubiak is among several assistant coaches departing the San Francisco 49ers for opportunities elsewhere. He will serve as the New Orleans Saints' offensive coordinator after his stint as the 49ers' offensive passing game specialist. Kubiak only spent one season with the 49ers. Of course, it's unsurprising to see the considerable interest in head coach Kyle Shanahan's coaching staff, given the success many of his proteges have found across the league. Upon his departure, Kubiak had nothing but praise for his time working under Shanahan. "Just being here a year, my experience is, Kyle really lets you into his brain in his game plan meetings," Kubiak
