The 49ers and Chargers will meet this Saturday in a game that means a whole lot for San Diego, but very little for the 49ers. With the playoffs out of the picture and injuries up and down their roster it will be a mystery who will be on the field and how the team will play at this point in the season.
In a big upset on Thursday night, the San Diego Chargers served up an unexpected defeat to the Broncos, in their own house, holding onto the ball for nearly two-thirds of the game in a 27-20 win.
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.
