Maiocco: 49ers had a tense ‘players-only’ meeting about four weeks ago

Oct 26, 2015 at 3:30 PM--


Yesterday, there was a report by Jay Glazer that described San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick as "alone on an island inside that locker room." Glazer went on to say that there are not a lot of people that he connects with to try to pick him back up.



Another report from Bay Area Sports Guy stated that, according to sources, there was a significant divide within the 49ers locker room that originated from the resulting tensions of a rumored love triangle between Kaepernick, former 49ers linebacker Aldon Smith, and Hot 97 host Nessa.

Today, Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area reported about a tense players-only meeting with Kaepernick as the topic of discussion.

During the rough stretch about four weeks ago, there was a tense players-only meeting in which one teammate called out Kaepernick, sources told CSNBayArea.com. Another player quickly stepped up in a show of support and the exchange became heated. In the days that followed, the individuals involved got together and cleared up their differences, according to a source.

There were no names in the report, but several players like WR Anquan Boldin have stepped up to defend their quarterback.

The 49ers must put distractions aside and move forward in what may already be a lost season. At 2-5, they sit alone at the bottom of the NFC West standings. This week, the 49ers are preparing for a division game against the Rams in St. Louis.

The San Francisco 49ers are excited about defensive lineman Javon Kinlaw's potential. While the rookie defender recorded just 1.5 sacks during his first NFL season, he showed flashes of being a powerful playmaker who could develop into an elite talent along the interior of the defensive line. "I think Kinlaw is going to be a dominant force in this league," John Lynch told Tim Kawakami of The Athletic on The TK Show podcast. "I should say, 'is going to become,' because he's not there yet. He's shown flashes." Lynch knows a thing or two about impressive defensive-line play. He played behind a Hall of Famer in Warren Sapp. In fact, watching his former teammate cause

Brandon Aiyuk has John Lynch excited about the 49ers' future

By the end of the 2020 season, wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk looked a lot more comfortable in the San Francisco 49ers offense and appeared ready to leap to becoming a dangerous offensive weapon. From Week 7 through Week 15, Aiyuk averaged 94.7 receiving yards per game through six appearances. To put that into perspective, maintaining that average throughout a 16-game season would clock in at 1,514 receiving yards. Aiyuk has just scratched the surface. That has 49ers general manager John Lynch excited. The young receiver would have benefited more from a normal offseason leading into his rookie year. That didn't happen, and it may have contributed to a slower start. "Brandon Aiyuk, he's everything we thought he would be, and a little bit more,"

The quarterback may have reached a breaking point and could contemplate a trade request if the situation doesn't improve. Of course, that launched a flurry of speculation and trade scenarios on social media, mostly by fans who believe their teams should be on the phones immediately trying to strike some sort of deal with the Texans.
