The Miami Dolphins starting quarterback Ryan Tannehill went down with a knee injury which will likely keep him out for the season. The Dolphins signed Jay Cutler to a one year, $10 million deal with incentives.

Red Zone Woes Continue to Haunt San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick

QB Colin Kaepernick doesn’t have many holes in his game, but there is one glaring thing that does stick out with him, and that would be his play in the red zone. Kaepernick’s play in the red zone has been one of his Achilles’ heels as he is developing into one of the best quarterbacks in the NFL.

In the last two seasons, Kaepernick and the San Francisco 49ers year ended on plays in the red zone, and last night in against the Chicago Bears it was the same result. Kaepernick has an arsenal of targets this season, and will need to improve on his red zone production in order for the 49ers to take their game to the next level.

With the threat of Kaepernick taking off to run, you would think that it would nearly impossible to stop him in the red zone. People fail to realize that throwing the football in the red zone is one of toughest things to do in the NFL. The passing windows are smaller, and the margin for error is smaller than usual. The play calling by Greg Roman isn’t the best in that area of the field, but No.7 has to raise his level of play twenty yards and in.

Kaepernick may have to add a little finesse to his game in the red zone. He has one of the strongest arms in the NFL, but he will have to pick and choose when to display the rocket arm.

Top-tier NFL quarterbacks such as Aaron Rodgers, Peyton Manning, and Tom Brady excel in the red zone due to them being able to throw a variety of passes. You rarely see Kaepernick throw the back-shoulder fade in the red zone, and it is something that could help him immensely. With Stevie Johnson, Vernon Davis, Michael Crabtree, and Anquan Boldin as his targets there should be no excuse that the 49ers aren’t one of the better passing teams in the red zone in all of football.

The development of Kaepernick will be crucial to the 49ers’ success, and last night against the Chicago Bears showed that there is still a lot of room for improvement.

Can San Francisco 49ers QB Colin Kaepernick Emerge as a MVP Candidate?

The San Francisco 49ers and Colin Kaepernick have faced their fair share of struggles this preseason, but the outlook should remain positive. QB Colin Kaepernick is entering his second full year as the starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers. It may seem a bit premature, but I feel that Kaepernick can emerge into a MVP candidate.
Kaepernick may only be entering his second full year as a starter, but he has played a lot of meaningful football games in his short career.

With Kap as the signal caller, the 49ers have gone deep into the playoffs only losing on the final play in Super Bowl XLVII and losing the NFC Championship in the last seconds of the of the 2013 season.With a sour way to end in his last two seasons, I expect Kaepernick to be hungrier than ever. Experience is always the best teacher, and with him gaining another year under center he has total command of the offense. Head coach Jim Harbaugh and Offensive coordinator Greg Roman can finally hand the keys to Kaepernick without any worries.

Kap may have led the 49ers deep into the playoffs the past two seasons, there were times when Roman had to hold Kaepernick back a bit due to a few of his discrepancies as a passer. Despite the potential that he has flashed, the 49ers still relied heavily on the running game and defense. That strategy worked well, but now it’s time to let Kap loose.

During preseason, minicamp and OTAs, Kaepernick has taken everyone by storm, and is looking like he can be the next great San Franciso 49ers quarterback. The main attribute that has stuck out– has been Kap’s leadership. Being a leader of a veteran football team is tough, but if anyone can rise to the challenge, it’s Kap.

The 49ers system will never allow Kaepernick to have 50 passing touchdowns a la Tom Brady or Peyton Manning, but he is capable of producing some insane numbers. With the ability to dominate as a runner and passer, Kaepernick will have ample opportunities to take his game to a new level.

This is the first season where he has depth at every position on the offensive side of the ball, and more importantly everyone is healthy at this time. The 49ers may play in the brutal NFC West, but it is still not a stretch to think that the 49ers could have the best offense in the NFL. It will be very tough to stop Michael Crabtree, Frank Gore, Stevie Johnson, Anquan Boldin , Carlos Hyde and Vernon Davis. With players of that stature, it is impossible to just focus on one player, and that will make life easier on Kap.

The 49ers haven’t had a legitimate MVP candidate since the glory days of Steve Young, Joe Montana and Jerry Rice, but I believe that can come to an end this season. Kaepernick will look to prove that he is worth his hefty contract, and he will also use all of the past year’s failures as motivation.
QB Colin Kaepernick is entering his second full year as the starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers. It may seem a bit premature, but I feel that Kaepernick can emerge into a MVP candidate.

It may be early to jump to the conclusion that Kaepernick will be an MVP candidate, but with the talent that the 49ers have, it will give Kap every opportunity to be one of the best players in the game.

Kevin Hart stars in Madden 15 commercial

Madden 15 comes out August 26th and a new interesting commercial has been released starring comedian Kevin Hart.

Dave Franco, Damian Lillard, Colin Kaepernick, Dez Bryant, Richard Sherman and a few others made cameos.

“Madden season” is the theme and check out the extended commercial if you haven’t seen it already.

 

49ers make Kaepernick their franchise Quarterback

Today the San Francisco 49ers cashed out Quarterback Colin Kaepernick, per ESPN. Kaepernick signed a six-year extension worth up to at least $110 million with an amazing $61 million guaranteed.

With this new deal in tact it is safe to say the 49ers are not worried at all about that off-season Miami incident.

I know this is a pretty penny to pay for a Quarterback who isn’t a fully finished product, but when you look at the deals of Jay Cutler and Tony Romo you understand why Kaepernick received his deal.

Kaepernick has led the 49ers to two NFC Conference Championship games and a Super Bowl (Loss). That isn’t bad at all for a two-year starter.

The 49ers have provided some receiving toys this off-season, along with Crabtree, Boldin and Davis, the 49ers have added Stevie Johnson, Brandon Lloyd and Bruce Ellington. So this season is damn near Super Bowl or bust.

Congrats, Kaep do ya thing. If you want to sponsor The Front Office News holla at ya boy!!
