Michael Crabtree has been cleared to practice, which means that he should be back on the active roster and playing in games sometime this month. His return, along with the recent activation of Mario Manningham mean the 49ers are finally full strength, and ready to take on all challengers.
While his stats don’t jump out at you, and with the 49er passing offense ranked 31st of 32 teams one would not think that Colin Kaepernick is having a great season. However, a look inside the numbers show that Colin Kaepernick is not only having a good season, but the past few weeks has played better than any other player at the position, ever.
After beating up on the Jacksonville Jaguars Sunday, there is not a NFL team in a better position than the San Francisco 49ers. They have won 5 straight, have a week off to rest up, continue to get better on the field, and with several players getting over lingering injures, the 49ers figure to be even better the next time they hit the field.
49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick passed for 199 yards and ran for 63 more and a touchdown in leading San Francisco to a 31-17 road victory over the Titans Sunday.
Tennessee stuck around for a half, but this game was never in doubt. The 49ers beat the Titans in every possible phase and the result was San Francisco winning their 4th straight game, convincingly.
While no 49er has been ruled out yet, both the 49ers and Titans appear as though they will be without at least one of their key run stoppers. Other defensive players have also been limited in practice, and as a result, both teams should look to rush the ball early and often.
One decisive 18-play drive told the story of San Francisco’s successful day on offense. The 49ers (4-2) churned out 89 yards and used up 9 1/2 minutes of clock time, from late in the third quarter to just less than seven minutes left.
A fourth quarter 89 yard touchdown march sealed the 49ers’ 32-20 victory over the Arizona Cardinals Sunday.
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick has seen his stats taper off this season, but he still leads even the great Peyton Manning in one category: jersey sales.
The 49ers will complete their first run through their divisional opponents when they take on the Arizona Cardinals this Sunday. The loser of the game will fall to .500 and if either team wants to make the playoffs, they have to look at this game as a must win.
