The Coach talks about NFL free-trade talk that goes before players are signed, the trade rumors of 49er QB Colin Kaepernick, the signing of Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith and loss of Frank Gore.
The 49ers are reportedly about to lose their franchise running back, and now rumors have surfaced that quarterback Colin Kaepernick may be following Frank Gore out of town.
So Colin Kaepernick tried to put a Twitter troll in the trash can where he belongs. Good for him, except he actually put the guy on the front page of every sports site in America.
It isn’t much of a secret anymore that the NFL is the most business savvy of any of the major professional sports leagues in America.
Coming off a disappointing season and about to meet a new coach, 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick will work with former NFL QB Kurt Warner and quarterback tutor Dennis Gile during the off-season.
Kaepernick is expected to travel to Phoenix next week and train there until the start of the 49ers’ offseason program.
As the 49ers look back on this season, it will not be positive. The team almost had a losing record, and missed the playoffs after 3 straight NFC Championship games. However, the teams awful season has to do with injuries than anything else, and a problem that shouldn’t haunt them next season.
In the regular season finale the 49ers looked good. The offense showed up, the defense held strong, and the special teams chipped in as they beat a Cardinal team that entered the game with a chance to earn home field advantage throughout the playoffs.
Quarterback Philip Rivers rallied San Diego back from a 21-point deficit in the second half, keeping the Chargers’ slim playoff hopes alive with a 38-35 victory over the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday night.
Two years ago they were within five yards of winning a Super Bowl. They had been to three straight NFC Championships and were considering Super Bowl favorites. Today, they are 7-7, not going to the playoffs, and imploding in every aspect imaginable.
