Two 49ers say Colin Kaepernick should be benched

Nov 2, 2015 at 8:59 AM--


Is player confidence in San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick hitting an all-time low? Jason Cole of Bleacher Report says that, following the team's 27-6 loss to the Rams in St. Louis, two 49ers players texted him and said "that it is time for Colin Kaepernick to be benched."

It is unknown which two players said this and Cole went on to say that the players don't want Kaepernick to be out of the plans for the 49ers. They believe that Kaepernick is going in the right direction as far as getting along with his teammates, but feel that he needs time on the bench to get his head and himself straight.

On Sunday, Kaepernick was 20 of 41 for 162 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions. Kaepernick was the team's leading rusher with 28 yards.

The potentially big play that stood out for Kaepernick was a missed opportunity. He missed a totally uncovered WR Torrey Smith during the first half. Making matters worse is that he was uncovered prior to the ball being snapped, waving his arms and jumping up and down to get the attention of his quarterback. WR Jerome Simpson also became uncovered just prior to the ball being snapped.

According to Matt Maiocco of CSN Bay Area, when asked if he saw Smith prior to the play, Kaepernick said, "No, I didn't see the corner close down on that. That's something that I should have been able to adjust out of."

Zierlein explains why the 49ers should give Trey Lance playing time in 2021

As soon as the team traded up to the No. 3 overall spot, NFL Media analyst Lance Zierlein felt Trey Lance to the San Francisco 49ers made a lot of sense. To him and many others, it certainly made more sense than drafting Mac Jones. "When you look at this, to me, OK, big, mobile, has experience under center, is highly intelligent, even as a young player," Zierlein explained on Friday during a KNBR interview. "Trey Lance is a guy that made perfect sense." There is some uncertainty surrounding when fans will get a good look at Lance running the 49ers offense. CEO Jed York told NBC Sports Bay Area this week that ownership is comfortable paying Jimmy Garoppolo's

Power rankings in May don't mean a lot, especially when you throw in figuring out how an unproven crop of rookies will impact a team's future success. "The NFL draft and the Power Rankings don't mix," wrote NFL.com contributor Dan Hanzus. That didn't stop him from trying. Hanzus released his latest power rankings, his first since a post-free-agency version in March, and has the San Francisco 49ers jumping up three spots to No. 9. The Niners' draft features the No. 3 overall pick, Trey Lance of North Dakota State. The team also added two offensive linemen in Aaron Banks and Jaylon Moore, two running backs in Trey Sermon and Elijah



ESPN's Fowler on why two 49ers draft picks deviate from the norm

The San Francisco 49ers' selection of guard Aaron Ranks in the second round took many by surprise. Maybe not the Atlanta Falcons, though. The former Notre Dame offensive lineman was selected ahead of where most figured he would go. Many figured the Niners would select the best available cornerback with their second-round pick. Also, Banks is bigger than the offensive linemen that San Francisco typically targets. Jeremy Fowler broke down some "key intel" on all 32 NFL teams in a feature for ESPN. He had the



These two 49ers rookies earned rare 'gold helmet' during pre-draft evaluations

According to assistant general manager Adam Peters, the San Francisco 49ers award a "gold helmet" designation to draft prospects who are "exemplary" in several areas, including leadership and intelligence. He told Matt Barrows of The Athletic that last year's fifth-round pick, offensive lineman Colton McKivitz, received the designation. Heading into a draft, only 15-20 prospects earn the "gold helmet." This year, the 49ers ended up drafting two players who earned the designation — quarterback Trey Lance, selected No. 3 overall, and safety Talanoa Hufanga, the last of three fifth-round
