Brooks: Trouble by the Bay
That woeful performance has reignited a fresh debate about Kaepernick's progress. While the quarterback's had some nice moments this season, the 49ers' passing attack has struggled overall. ESPN's Trent Dilfer noted that Kaepernick becomes a "remedial" passer when his first read is taken away.
"I didn't hear what he had to say, but he's not in the building with us," Kaepernick said, via the San Francisco Chronicle. "So what he's saying really doesn't affect me at all. I'm worried about what this team thinks, and what I'm doing in here with my teammates."
Dilfer's specific critique was then explained to Kaepernick.
"I think you should ask him if he knows what my progression is first before he says that," Kaepernick said.
Kaepernick has been known to take motivation from outside sources before. He has started to "favorite" negative tweets about him on Twitter once again.
