Golden Nuggets: Colin Kaepernick the center of discussion on Wednesday

49ers links for Thursday, October 8, 2015.

Good morning! The San Francisco 49ers are back at practice this week, getting ready for the New York Giants. Wednesday meant we heard from Jim Tomsula, Colin Kaepernick and special teams coach Thomas McGaughey. You can watch their full videos below. I have also posted Kaepernick and McGaughey transcripts.

Tomsula and Kaepernick's press conferences focused on Kap's struggles the last two weeks. Tomsula was asked whether he had to speak with Trent Baalke before making a decision at the starting QB role. Tomsula said it was 100 percent his decision. He has repeatedly said he will not replace Kap, but the questions are not going to go away if Kap keeps struggling. If he does continue struggling, it will be interesting to see how these press conferences progress in the coming weeks. This is kind of a big game if the 49ers want to slow down this potentially runaway train.
