Kaepernick’s slide continues, and he offers no explanation for it

As the 49ers fade from postseason contention for the first time since Jim Harbaugh became head coach, quarterback Colin Kaepernick has become increasingly sullen in his dealings with the media.  While still responsive to questions from reporters, his body language suggests no interest in talking about why he and the team aren’t thriving. Here’s the…

Sio Moore on Colin Kaepernick: He’s a chump

The Raiders spent Sunday battering 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick and then letting him know that they were battering him. Kaepernick was sacked five times when he wasn’t throwing two interceptions and completing 18-of-33 passes for 174 yards in a 24-13 loss to the Raiders that crystallized everything that has gone wrong for the 49ers on…

Carr excels, Kaepernick struggles as Raiders upset 49ers

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr had a big game today, and 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick did not. It wasn’t all about the quarterbacks, but the biggest takeaway from Oakland’s upset win over San Francisco is that Carr looks like just the kind of bright young quarterback the Raiders hoped they were drafting this year, while Kaepernick…

Week 14 “Three and Out”: 49ers at Raiders

Through 12 games, the Raiders have the NFL’s worst point differential (minus-161). Considering their 1-11 record, that’s not all that surprising. On Sunday, the Raiders host the 7-5 49ers, who are a game out of the final wild-card spot in the NFC. And like Oakland, San Francisco has a negative point differential. Through 12 games,…

Harbaugh defends Kaepernick’s conciseness

49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick never has been loquacious in his dealings with the media.  He was more truncated than ever during Wednesday’s session with the press covering the team, prompting many to notice — and some to even count the total number of words Kaepernick uttered while responding to the various questions. On Friday, coach…

Maclin likes his chances against Sherman

One of the best games for Week 14 happens in Philly, where the Seahawks face the Eagles.  And one of the biggest questions is whether the Eagles will throw at cornerback Richard Sherman. Apparently, the Eagles will.  Receiver Jeremy Maclin likes his chances against one of the best defensive backs in the league. “The one…

Colin Kaepernick, man of few words

Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch could learn a thing or two from 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick. Lynch, who doesn’t like to talk to reporters (unless he used to play on the same team with them), has reluctantly submitted to mandatory press availability by mimicking Fred and Barney Nothing. Kaepernick doesn’t say much more than “yes”…

Richard Sherman named NFC defensive player of the week

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman got to enjoy some turkey on the field at Levi’s Stadium after the Seahawks polished off the 49ers like freshly baked pumpkin pie on Thanksgiving night, but that wasn’t the only prize he received for his good play in the 19-3 Seattle win. Sherman has also been named the NFC defensive player…

Seahawks still have Kaepernick’s number

Colin Kaepernick struggled against the Seahawks on Thursday night. As usual. In Seattle’s 19-3 Thanksgiving night win at San Francisco, Richard Sherman picked off Kaepernick twice and the 49ers’ offense never got into the end zone. In fact, the 49ers only got into the red zone once, and on their one and only red-zone play,…

Jim Harbaugh: We always evaluate offense, we’ll do it again

In the two weeks leading up to Thanksgiving, the 49ers managed to score 33 points in games against a pair of NFC East bottom feeders but avoided generating much of an alarm because they were able to win both games. They are now up to 36 points in their last three games and the alarms…

Richard Sherman on Kaepernick: I was the open man

Seahawks cornerback Richard Sherman was holding court after Thursday night’s meeting with the 49ers, just as he was the last time the two teams met. That was in the NFC Championship Game, of course, and Sherman saw his profile grow with the way he crowed about his play to force an interception on a pass…

49ers struggle in first half, down two scores

After a first half in which they looked nothing like playoff contenders, the 49ers face a 13-0 halftime deficit vs. the Seahawks. The 49ers’ offense had a first two quarters to forget. Quarterback Colin Kaepernick struggled with his accuracy, hitting on just 7-of-16 passes for 55 yards. He was picked once by Richard Sherman, setting…
