Chip Kelly: Blaine Gabbert doesn’t have “leg up” on starting job

Blaine Gabbert was the only one of the two 49ers quarterbacks competing for the starting job that saw action in Sunday night’s game against the Texans, continuing a trend from the spring that has seen Gabbert on the field while Colin Kaepernick recovers from injury.

Their passing game’s not much to look at, but 49ers can run

The 49ers might have a pretty shabby competition for their starting quarterback job. But they did show in the preseason opener some capability to do the thing which will minimize the impact either Blaine Gabbert or Colin Kaepernick have on the game.

Blaine Gabbert starts slowly, makes a few plays for 49ers

Colin Kaepernick’s not even playing tonight. But if he’s losing the starting quarterback job to Blaine Gabbert, it might say more about him than the 49ers.

49ers quarterback competition “just getting started”

The two candidates have stark differences, in style, pedigree, career accomplishments, recent performances, and offseason desire to play for the 49ers. But Blaine Gabbert, a failed first-round pick who has positioned himself to become the starter, and Colin Kaepernick, a second-rounder-turned-Super-Bowl-starter-turned-one-of-the-best-ever-turned-disappointment-turned-trade-bait, are in a legitimate and genuine quarterback competition. Via Matt Maiocco of CSNBayArea.com, offensive coordinator…

Two years ago, Jaworski saw clear gap between Nick Foles and Russell Wilson

Three years ago, ESPN’s Ron Jaworski cooked up one of the hottest takes of all time, taking the position that quarterback Colin Kaepernick could be one of the best quarterbacks of all time. Jaworski’s opinion somehow became news for his employer, feeding the four-letter network’s engine for several days in August 2013. A year later,…
