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' Nick Bosa opens up about Super Bowl loss and early offseason return

By David Bonilla
May 21

Nick Bosa is probably looking forward to the day when reporters stop asking him about the San Francisco 49ers' recent Super Bowl loss. Unfortunately for him, that day wasn't today. The star pass rusher answered questions from the media after the team's Tuesday afternoon practice session and was asked about his feelings regarding the game now that he's more than three months removed from it. "With the Super Bowl, unfortunately, I know how to bounce back from tough losses," Bosa said. "It was rough for a little bit, but now it's just annoying when people bring it up." Bosa stared at the reporter who asked the question, then smiled and

49ers LB Fred Warner: Super Bowl win not a matter of 'if' but 'when'

Fred Warner is confident that his moment will come. He believes the San Francisco 49ers remain one of the best teams in the NFL, and it's only a matter of time before they hoist the Vince Lombardi Trophy. It's been over three months since Warner and his teammates experienced the heartbreak of the overtime loss to the Kansas City Chiefs in Super Bowl LVIII. Speaking to NFL Network's Steve Wyche and Judy Battista, the star linebacker admits he isn't quite over that loss. In fact, he isn't even over the Super Bowl defeat he suffered four years ago. "Those things stay with you," Warner said. "In this league, you earn scars. Throughout the league, you face adversity. Losing the Super Bowl, of course, is as big of an adversity that you can hit, and it stays with you

Vernon Davis weighs in on 49ers' Super Bowl chances

The San Francisco 49ers are looking to rebound from a heartbreaking Super Bowl defeat and return to the NFL's big game in the upcoming season. The road won't be easy; getting there once, much less twice in a row, is challenging. The Kansas City Chiefs accomplished that feat, beating the Philadelphia Eagles in Super Bowl LVII and then, in February, the 49ers in Super Bowl LVIII. Their journey was an uphill battle. Kansas City won the AFC West but entered the postseason as the third seed. They had to knock off the top two seeds on their way to the Super Bowl. The 49ers overcame adversity differently. They were the top seed in the NFC but had to mount comebacks in each of their playoff victories leading up to their clash with the Chiefs. Former 49ers

49ers' Christian McCaffrey driven to redeem costly Super Bowl mistake

By David Bonilla

A segment of the San Francisco 49ers fanbase still blames running back Roger Craig for the team's failure to reach a third consecutive Super Bowl. Craig once called it the worst moment of his professional career. "I've had a lot of highs and lows, but this is the lowest ever,'' Craig said at the time. "I never dreamed I would make a fumble in a spot like that. This is like a nightmare for a running back." Craig was referring to his fumble in the closing minutes of the NFC Championship Game against the New York Giants, which unceremoniously ended San Francisco's 1990 season and crushed all hopes of the NFL's first-ever three-peat. Christian McCaffrey, often likened to a modern-day Craig, is a versatile running back who can dominate both through the
