Former San Francisco 49ers running back Ricky Watters joined Chad, Joe & Lo on 95.7 The Game to discuss the team's quarterback situation. He sounded excited to see the competition heading into preseason, but disappointed that it has so far only featured Blaine Gabbert.

"One of the real storylines of this preseason was the competition between Colin Kaepernick and Blaine Gabbert, but you can't have a competition when you just have one quarterback out there," said Watters. "So, it is very peculiar right now. Don't understand what is going on, but what I'm hearing is that Colin Kaepernick is healthy. That he doesn't have a dead arm syndrome or tired arm or whatever. That his zip is back on the ball so – I'm like – as the boxers would say, 'Let's get ready to rumble!'

"I think it would be great to see that competition and I think everyone loves a great comeback story and believe that this may be the best offense for Colin Kaepernick, so let's see what he's got."

Watters went on to discuss Gabbert, who he said isn't "wowing" anybody right now, Kaepernick's relationship with general manager Trent Baalke, the 49ers' tough schedule, and more.

"I'm one of the guys who thinks that this might that system for (Kaepernick)," said Watters. "Where he can just take off and get back to where we've seen him at times behind center."

Brock Purdy has proven himself an impressive and promising young player for the San Francisco 49ers. It's difficult to argue against that—although some continue to try. Purdy led the 49ers to the Super Bowl in his second NFL season and set a new single-season franchise record with 4,280 passing yards. Throughout the season, 49ers great and soon-to-be Hall of Fame linebacker Patrick Willis has voiced his admiration for Purdy and the team's achievements. However, when faced with a choice between Purdy and Colin Kaepernick, Willis sided with his former teammate. During a recent podcast appearance with Robert Griffin III, Willis was asked to choose between Kaepernick from 2012 and Purdy from 2023. "I'm going to have to take Kap," declared

Fred Warner and Dre Greenlaw are arguably the best linebacker duo in the NFL, serving as the heart of the San Francisco 49ers defense while sharing a strong bond.

The following video captures Warner's raw emotional response after Greenlaw was carted off the field, revealing the profound anguish experienced by the star linebacker, even as teammate Nick Bosa attempted to console him.

Klint Kubiak is among several assistant coaches departing the San Francisco 49ers for opportunities elsewhere. He will serve as the New Orleans Saints' offensive coordinator after his stint as the 49ers' offensive passing game specialist. Kubiak only spent one season with the 49ers. Of course, it's unsurprising to see the considerable interest in head coach Kyle Shanahan's coaching staff, given the success many of his proteges have found across the league. Upon his departure, Kubiak had nothing but praise for his time working under Shanahan. "Just being here a year, my experience is, Kyle really lets you into his brain in his game plan meetings," Kubiak
