Colin Kaepernick congratulates Jim Harbaugh on his Citrus Bowl victory

Jan 1, 2016 at 3:51 PM--


San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick sent out a congratulatory tweet to his former head coach and current University of Michigan head coach Jim Harbaugh. Following last season, the 49ers "parted ways" with Harbaugh after an 8-8 season and he was quickly scooped up by his alma mater to be their next head coach.

Harbaugh led the Wolverines to 10-3 season, capping it off with an impressive 41-7 victory over the Florida Gators in the Citrus Bowl.


Harbaugh replied to Kaepernick, giving thanks and wishing him the best in 2016.


Together, Kaepernick and Harbaugh led the 49ers to two NFC Championship games (2012, 2013 seasons) and a Super Bowl (2012 season).

This season, the 49ers are 4-11 with one final game left and Kaepernick was benched for QB Blaine Gabbert before being placed on injured reserve with a torn labrum in his left shoulder. He is scheduled to make $11.9 million in 2016 if he is still on the roster on April 1. That base salary is guaranteed for injury.

The 49ers are in the Mile High City, ready to face the Denver Broncos. Last week, the 49ers defeated Pete Carroll and the Seattle Seahawks, improving their record to 1-1. However, one key piece missing from Seattle was former QB Russell Wilson. Wilson is 17-4 (including the playoffs) against San Francisco. His last loss to the 49ers was on December 29, 2019. Wilson has the Broncos sitting at 1-1, but he doesn't look like the same quarterback from the past. If the 49ers want to improve to 2-1, here are a few KEYS to VICTORY.

Fresh off a disappointing 11-10 loss to the Denver Broncos on Sunday Night Football, the 49ers will host their division-rival Los Angeles Rams in a Monday Night showdown this week during a matchup in which the 49ers could come away with first place in the NFC West should they win. Here are the keys to win for the 49ers in Week 4. 1. Third Down Conversions Last weekend, the 49ers converted just 1/10 of their third-down opportunities, keeping their offense off the field and limiting the number of chances for a potential score.

49ers' Kyle Shanahan clarifies his Lamar Jackson comments, explains plan for Trey Lance

Social media dug up an old quote from Kyle Shanahan to create a narrative that the San Francisco 49ers head coach contradicted what he said in 2021 when asked to compare Trey Lance to Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson. "He's not Lamar Jackson," Shanahan said, via ESPN's Ed Werder. "Trey is a quarterback who has the ability to run. But to just line him up and run him, I mean, the game's too physical." Despite injuries at RB, Kyle Shanahan doesn't view rookie QB Trey Lance as solution to create rushing yards. "He's not Lamar Jackson,'' he told me. "Trey is a quarterback who has the ability to run. But to just



"I've got to be ready": 49ers rookie Brock Purdy discusses his mindset as Jimmy Garoppolo's backup

All signs point toward Brock Purdy being active on Sunday against the Denver Broncos. It will be the first time he has suited up for a regular-season NFL game after being inactive for Weeks 1 and 2. Fullback Kyle Juszczyk was the emergency quarterback against the Seattle Seahawks after starter Trey Lance went down with a season-ending ankle injury. San Francisco made Purdy the last selection in the 2022 NFL Draft—Mr. Irrelevant. However, the rookie quarterback has been pretty relevant for the 49ers this year. Coaches were pleased with what he showed in training camp and the preseason. So pleased that Purdy beat out Nate Sudfeld. "He steps into that huddle, and it's his huddle," general manager John Lynch said of Purdy after the 53-man roster was assembled.
