Good morning everyone. Hope you’re all having a good time despite the recent San Francisco 49ers loss. Obviously, the biggest story concerning the team right now is Colin Kaepernick and his refusal to stand during the national anthem and I’m really not going to spend any time on that. I said how I feel about that on Twitter and I’m not even sure that people need another take on it anyway.
Instead: football! That’s a thing! The third week of the preseason ends on Sunday with three games, though the 49ers are already looking ahead to Week 4. I have no idea if Blaine Gabbert or Kaepernick will play extensively in that fourth game, but Chip Kelly insists that the battle for the starting quarterback job is still ongoing.
I’m not sure how much I believe him but I’m hopeful nonetheless. Then again, it probably doesn’t really matter who starts this season as the 49ers will probably need to find their franchise quarterback elsewhere, but there’s a voice deep inside me that wishes the Kaepernick dream was realized. Oh well.
Onto your links for the day.
