Colin Kaepernick will likely make the 49ers’ final roster

Sep 2, 2016 at 12:53 PM--


Numerous sources are reporting that San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is likely to make the team's final roster.


On Thursday, Kaepernick played during the 49ers' preseason finale against the Chargers in San Diego while Blaine Gabbert sat. Amid boos from the crowd during the Chargers' "Salute to the Military" night, Kaepernick led a touchdown drive during the 49ers' opening possession. He finished the night 11 of 18 for 103 yards passing and 38 yards rushing on four carries.

There was some speculation that Kaepernick might be a roster casualty, even if the team decided to keep three quarterbacks. A muscle issue in his throwing arm prevented Kaepernick from playing in the 49ers' first two preseason games, but he participated in the team's final two and started against San Diego.

Head coach Chip Kelly stated that the team would not announce any roster cuts until Saturday, the day of the deadline for NFL teams to reach the 53-man roster limit. That also seemed to include any of the depth chart decisions for the roster.

Kelly stated that the team would not make any announcements until after the coaching staff had a chance to review the game film from Thursday night and meet with general manager Trent Baalke to discuss the roster.

Are the 49ers really underwhelmed by QB Trey Lance?

Earlier this week, reports surfaced from FanSided reporter Matt Lombardo that the San Francisco 49ers have been "continually underwhelmed" by young quarterback Trey Lance as he approaches his second season in the NFL. Lombardo further clarified that his tweet was based upon a conversation with an executive who's "pretty tight" with the 49ers, as well as members of the coaching staff last season. Unfortunately, based on the words of multiple players on the team, as well as the coaching staff and front office, that unsubstantiated claim couldn't be further from the truth. Here's a month-by-month breakdown of the comments surrounding Lance following the season, beginning with San Francisco's post-season press conferences in early

Albert Breer weighs in on Trey Lance doubts, Deebo Samuel situation with 49ers

There have been two major San Francisco 49ers storylines this offseason. The first was the quarterback situation and the transition from Jimmy Garoppolo to Trey Lance. Then, that was overshadowed by the Deebo Samuel drama that culminated in the wide receiver requesting a trade—and then being denied. On Monday, Albert Breer of MMQB joined The Rich Eisen Show and shared what he had heard about both storylines, starting with Samuel and the 49ers' strong desire to mend the broken relationship. "The messaging coming out of there is how badly [the 49ers] want him back and how important he is to their team," Breer told Eisen. Samuel was an essential factor in the team's success last season, amassing 1,770 all-purpose yards and 14 total touchdowns for



Creating the ideal 2022 San Francisco 49ers schedule

By Wayne Breezie

As I searched the world wide web for exciting things to bring to the world, I couldn't help but draw inspiration from the great Matt Barrows of The Athletic. In a recent mailbag article, a fan presented the task of creating the ideal San Francisco 49ers schedule based on what we already know for home/away opponents. Here is my dream schedule for the 2022 49ers season. Week 1 vs. Cardinals - This would be a home game for the 49ers and must-see television. Trey Lance would get a second chance at the team that handed him his first loss. Kyler Murray vs. Lance is pay-per-view quality. Week 2 at Panthers - Now that Lance got his feet wet, he should have no problems commanding his troops against the Carolina Panthers. I
