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."

49ers RB Jerick McKinnon makes emotional return after two injury-filled years

It's been a long time coming for running back Jerick McKinnon, but after more than two years of waiting, he finally has his first game in the books as a member of the San Francisco 49ers. McKinnon joined the 49ers in 2018 on a lucrative four-year deal worth $30 million after spending the first four seasons of his NFL career with the Minnesota Vikings. At the time, McKinnon was expected to take over as the lead back in San Francisco for the foreseeable future. But he wound up missing the entire 2018 season after suffering a torn ACL during a practice session days before the season opener, then experienced a setback the following year that caused him to miss the 2019 season as well. In the meantime, McKinnon watched from the sidelines as his friend and now former

Peter Schrager of Good Morning Football recently called the San Francisco 49ers one of the most disrespected conference champions in recent memory.

Not only is Peter King of NBC Sports not picking San Francisco to win the NFC, but he doesn't even envision the team winning its division. King has the 49ers earning the No. 5 seed in the conference and the Seattle Seahawks winning the NFC West. The reason? Quarterbacks. "San Francisco, up by two scores with eight minutes left in the Super Bowl and with so many key guys returning, is a
