More and more people are coming to the conclusion that Thursday Night Football is missing a couple of words in the title. Like “not.” And “very.” And “good.”
The latest short-week snoozefest comes from the 49ers and Rams. The home team leads after one quarter, 3-0.
49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick continues to look ordinary, completing two of five passes for 11 yards. As NFL Network’s Mike Mayock pointed out, Kaepernick didn’t see a wide-open receiver that was his second read, instead getting sacked by Rams defensive lineman Robert Quinn.
Kaepernick also has no rushing attempts.
The Niners can still turn it around. Especially if coach Jim Harbaugh’s halftime speech consists of reading aloud any mean Twitter messages directed to Kaepernick.
