Golden Nuggets: Waiting for the Colin Kaepernick, Blaine Gabbert battle

Sunday, June 12th, 2016 edition of the Golden Nuggets, a daily compilation of San Francisco 49ers links from around the Internet.

Good morning everyone. Since it was published later in the day on a Saturday, I’m going to link you guys to the post I put up yesterday taking another look at five random Blaine Gabbert passes. If I have to sit there and write 1,000 words about four incomplete passes and a touchdown, then you jerks are definitely going to read it and comment on it.

For the record, I’ve got several of those posts planned and it’s part of a larger look at Gabbert I’m trying to take without my preconceived bias. Nothing I’m seeing has convinced me that I’ve got him wrong, but there are small things he does right that I think are a bit overlooked and I look forward to bringing those things to light in future posts.

The San Francsico 49ers don’t have a whole lot going on at this point, so you might see some repeat links in the Nuggets. Either way, let’s get to them. Enjoy.
