Report: 49ers Have Benched Colin Kaepernick

This is how bad things have gotten in San Francisco for Colin Kaepernick.

The 49ers have decided Blaine Gabbert is a better option right now.

According to Ian Rapoport of the NFL Network, Kaepernick has been informed he’s been benched. The move was first reported by

It seemed like this was coming when 49ers coach Jim Tomsula said he was “evaluating everyone,” but the reality is still jarring.

While Kaepernick looks like a guy who could use a break, especially after his 4.0 yards per attempt game Sunday against the Rams, it’s also hard to understand how he’s going to fix things there in the current setting. The problems in San Francisco go far beyond Kaepernick at the moment, but he’s taking the blame.

  1. Finally. Been waiting for this. Obviously he isn't the full problem but if you have watched every game you will notice that when he DID have the time to throw he still managed not to hit his target. His inaccurate throws is insufficient for a professional QB starter. He obviously can do it because he did well under Harbaugh. The coaching staff has to go as well. But this move is a start since he was not producing when he did have the chance.
