Golden Nuggets: Jim Harbaugh has his QB's back

Rob Foldy-USA TODAY Sports

Saturday, April 26, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of 49ers links from around the web.

Good morning everyone. There are less than two weeks until the draft and I have to say, I hate every second of it. Just kidding, that's what I would say if I wasn't so thankful for these boring days before the draft. I learned my lesson, the mighty offseason clearly doesn't enjoy us mere mortals make fun of it. Message received, ixnay on the oringbay.

Jim Harbaugh and Trent Baalke both spoke yesterday. Trent covered just about every topic but Jim's take on Colin Kaepernick was one of my favorite reads of the entire offseason. Jim feels similar to a lot of us in that at this point, it looks like Colin is going to be absolved of TMZ's allegations (the ones that never came from the woman as far as I can tell.) Harbaugh called it a "jump the gun witch hunt" and claimed that the only victim was Colin Kaepernick's reputation. I feel better about this one particular situation every time new information comes out. It's just a shame we are going to have to see the R-bomb dropped in forums all season because naturally, the other side of the story (the one that isn't as interesting) won't get anywhere near the coverage.
