Good morning everybody and happy training camp! The San Francisco 49ers go into training camp with a few questions, most notable the quarterback battle between Blaine Gabbert and Colin Kaepernick. Early reports indicate that Gabbert has the edge—which makes sense considering he took all the minicamp reps while Kaepernick was forced to watch while rehabbing a shoulder.
While that may make some want to declare Gabbert the winner in this epic battle, let’s not forget we still have a lot of training camp left and Kaepernick does have some catch-up to make after being sidelined with his injuries.
On a larger scale, both offense and defense had some notable moments it seems like, and rather than outline everything, I’ll just get you to your links below. I’ve tried my best to group everything so you can go right to your storyline of choice.
Let’s get to the links!
