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.

49ers' Kyle Shanahan Had His Peter Pan Moment

One of my favorite movies as a child was the 1991 classic Hook, a Steven Spielberg-directed sequel to the Peter Pan story, starring Robin Williams as a grown-up Peter Pan. The premise of the movie, for those that haven't seen it, follows an adult Peter Pan as he returns to Neverland to rescue his children from the still Pan-obsessed Captain James Hook. The Lost Boys, the group of perpetual children that Pan led while still in Neverland, do not recognize the now grown-up Peter Pan, nor does he remember his time there. Midway through the movie, after an epic, and colorful food fight, a Lost Boy named Pockets stands in front of a kneeling Peter Pan, playing with his face until he realizes, and exclaims, "oh, there you are



Steve Young: 49ers find their dogs, Jimmy Garoppolo at his best

A week ago, Hall of Fame quarterback Steve Young wondered if the San Francisco 49ers had any dogs on the team. A conversation with a former teammate and another Hall of Fame player, Jerry Rice, led Young to ponder the question. "There's no dogs," Rice told Young. Of course, that was coming off an embarrassing loss to an injury-depleted Arizona Cardinals team. The quarterback turned ESPN analyst, like fans, saw a completely different squad on Monday night against the Los Angeles Rams. It was a dominant performance that ended with a 31-10 upset win and Kyle Shanahan's fifth consecutive



49ers-Jaguars: Deebo Samuel credits this player for his leap as a receiver, expects to play Sunday

San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel is dealing with a shin contusion and has been limited during practice this week. That probably won't keep him out of Sunday's game against the Jacksonville Jaguars, though. "I'll be ready for Sunday," Samuel said after practice. "We're just taking our time. Just had a shin contusion, so just taking it slow, but we'll be ready." That's good news for the Niners. Samuel is the team's leading receiver, and his 979 receiving yards rank second among all NFL receivers this season. After struggling through injuries last season, the wideout has made a significant leap in his third year. Many, including Samuel, credit one player's influence for that leap as an offensive weapon. Samuel doesn't typically give long
