49ers' Vernon Davis says Colin Kaepernick looks like a different guy
|by Sean d'Oliveira | CBSSports.com|
|(4/10/15) 49ers tight end Vernon Davis spoke to media members Friday and said he likes the improvements Colin Kaepernick has made to his game, according to the team.
"You guys are in for a treat," Davis said. "He looks like a totally different guy."
Kaepernick has been working with former quarterback Kurt Warner to improve his mechanics within the pocket.
"I just want to do everything I can to get better and do what I can to help this team win," Kaepernick said.
49ers WR Anquan Boldin to Colin Kaepernick: 'Be yourself'
|by Elliott Smith | Staff Writer|
|(4/9/15) 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is in the midst of an offseason evolution of his game, but he has one supporter in wide receiver Anquan Boldin, who said in a radio interview that the signal-caller should not reinvent the wheel, per NFL.com.
"To be honest with you I think he just has to block out everything else around him, stop listening to what people want, what people have to say about you, stop listening to what people want to see you do and just be yourself," Boldin said.
Kaepernick, who has been working with former QB Kurt Warner, completed 60.5 percent of his passes in 2014, throwing for 3,369 yards, 19 touchdowns and 10 interceptions while adding 639 yards and one touchdown on the ground.
49ers GM on Colin Kaepernick: 'Working his tail off right now'
|by R.J. White | CBSSports.com|
|(2/19/15) 49ers general manager Trent Baalke spoke about quarterback Colin Kaepernick at the NFL Combine Thursday, saying the signal caller is "working his tail off right now," per the team's website.
"He’s down in Arizona," Baalke said. "He’s working hard with [former NFL QB and current NFL Network analyst] Kurt [Warner] and several other people. We’ve had a little bit of communication through this first part of the break. But, I know he’s working awfully hard. He knows what he needs to work on. He’s a very dedicated player and I’m sure he feels good about the progress he’s made up to this point. The only reason you go down there and do the things he’s doing is to get better. That’s the mindset and I think he feels comfortable with where he’s at and hopefully that transfers to the field."
Baalke also addressed the parts of Kaepernick's game on which he's working in Arizona, saying, "I know that what he’s down there working on is just all the technique things that go along with the position; footwork, delivery, changing platforms, throwing platforms, arm angle. He’s working on all of that stuff. And, being able to take a little pace off of the ball when he needs to take some pace off of it."
Kaepernick completed 60.5 percent of his passes in 2014, throwing for 3,369 yards, 19 touchdowns and 10 interceptions while adding 639 yards and one touchdown on the ground.
49ers' new QB coach excited to mentor Colin Kaepernick
|by Larry Hartstein | Senior Analyst|
|(2/9/15) New 49ers quarterback coach Steve Logan, who has mentored Jeff Blake, David Garrard and Matt Ryan, said he's looking forward to working with Colin Kaepernick.
“If I was going to make a list of what do you want to coach – let’s draw up a guy you want to coach — those first two boxes you check are accuracy and decision-making," Logan told a Raleigh-based radio station last week, per the team's website. "He’s really good with both of those right now."
Logan will be asked to develop Kaepernick's complete game, per the team's website. Kaepernick, 27, accounted for 20 touchdowns and 15 turnovers last season but threw for a career-high 3,369 yards.
49ers CEO York: 'Defenses are not going to want to play against us'
|by Michael Hurcomb | CBSSports.com|
|(1/30/15) 49ers CEO Jed York confirmed the promotion of quarterbacks coach Geep Chryst to offensive coordinator during an interview with NFL Network on Friday. York is particularly excited about Chryst, who has been the quarterbacks coach since 2011, continuing to work with quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
“With Kap, you got a guy in Geep Chryst who knows him better than anybody else,” York said, per CSNBayArea.com. “You have a great guy in (quarterbacks coach) Steve Logan who is coming to come in to work with him on fundamentals and allow us to put together a system that’s going to put Kap in the best position to make plays.
“How many quarterbacks in this league can run 90 yards for a touchdown? I can’t think of many. But you have to put Kap in a position where he can make those plays. And put Kap in a position where we can run the ball (and) we can throw the ball in ways that allow him to be successful and let him be the absolute stud that he can be on the field. And I think that’s what you’re going to see from us next year. Defenses are not going to want to play against us because you’re not going to know where we’re going to hit you.”
|Colin Kaepernick was headed toward a solid season in 2014 with at least 20 Fantasy points in a standard league in four of his first six games. He had three games with multiple passing touchdowns over that span and four games with at least 37 rushing yards. But then things fell apart, and Kaepernick reached 20 Fantasy points just twice in his final 10 games, which were the last two games of the season. The key for Kaepernick's Fantasy value last season was his rushing total, and of the seven times he ran for at least 37 yards he had at least 20 Fantasy points five times. New 49ers coach Jim Tomsula says he's OK with Kaepernick running more this year, and we hope that develops. The 49ers made several changes on offense with Torrey Smith replacing Michael Crabtree, and Carlos Hyde stepping into the starting running back job with Frank Gore gone, along with the addition of Reggie Bush. We hope more speed on offense, especially with Smith, helps Kaepernick excel. He's not worth drafting as a starting Fantasy quarterback, but he should be considered a No. 2 option with upside. He's a quality selection in all leagues with a late-round pick.
