After this week’s loss to the Rams, The 49ers have fallen to 2-5. They appear to have defencies in every single roster spot. This does not exclude the quarterback position…
Reports are flying that ‘multiple players on the 49ers want Kaepernick benched’.
Jason Cole of Bleacher Report:
“Two 49ers players texted me and said after this game that it is time for Colin Kaepernick to be benched. This game lost to the Rams was the tipping point in a series of events that have been building and building and building to this point, What these players say is they don’t want Kaepernick’s to be out of the plans for the 49ers. But simply put they think he needs time on the bench to clear his head, get himself straight so he understands what the offense is trying to do and what he can do to make it work.”
Kaepernick threw for 162 yards with no TDs and no interceptions on Sunday, which is comparable to his stat line from every game this season. Blaine Gabbert sits behind Kaep on the depth chart. It’s awfully doubtful to think Gabbert would do any better as the starter, but at this point it can’t hurt for them to give it a whirl.
