Golden Nuggets: Colin Kaepernick investigation drama, which fits this 49ers' offseason like a glove

Friday, April 11, 2014 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet.

I'm not sure what the deal is over in Santa Clara, but this offseason has been ridiculously odd for the San Francisco 49ers. It's also a weird situation given the amount of crap that has been stirred up on the roster, on the coaching staff and in the front office is gigantic, yet I haven't seen the tired rhetoric of "this will surely hurt them on the field," that you usually see when a team goes through this stuff.

Is it a testament to the strength of San Francisco's organization and locker room? Is it a respect for Jim Harbaugh and Trent Baalke? No, I just think the 49ers being in disarray doesn't sell as well as, say, the Philadelphia Eagles, New York Jets or Oakland Raiders being in disarray.

But the lack of a national media frenzy picking this organization apart doesn't make it any easier to see someone like Colin Kaepernick in the news for ... whatever the hell he's in the news for. Let's hope that the confusion we currently see becomes a clear picture of "it was just a weird night," and not "it was a really horrible night for everyone involved."
