Is It Time for Colin Kaepernick?

colin-kaepernick-1-1200x900The oh so strange and topsy turvy season of 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick may be set to take another turn. Just this week a survey of NFL fans, as reported by Forbes, says that fully 1/3 are less likely to watch the NFL on television because of the national anthem protests that are being led by Kaepernick. The once unassailable television ratings juggernaut that is the NFL has seen an unprecedented drop this season, and at least according to these numbers, their kryptonite is the action spurred on by a single backup quarterback. Although it is also worth noting that Kaepernick’s #7 49ers jersey began the season as the NFL’s top seller, although we can’t be sure that if that’s in support of Kaepernick, or to burn his jersey in effigy.

2015 NFL Team Preview: San Francisco 49ers

funny weird aldon smith 2015 san francisco 49ers nfl season team previewThe rivalry between the San Francisco 49ers and Seattle Seahawks was fun to watch. They would build their teams to beat the other. They would even claim each others players that were waived. Well, I guess we can put that rivalry to bed for awhile. The Niners are not the same team…in many, many ways.

The Niners are without head coach Jim Harbaugh who left to coach his alma mater. They also lost many faces on defense to retirement and off the field issues. Long-time running back Frank Gore even left town.

How will Colin Kaepernick fare without an elite defense?

Here is the 2015 NFL team preview for the San Francisco 49ers.

2013 NFL Week 14 – Betting Picks Against Spread

Jim+Harbaugh+Colin+Kaepernick+FunnyI started out great last week with a nice Thanksgiving, but then the Sunday afternoon games bit me. I finished the week with hits on Sunday night and Monday. I have a 98-68-10 record against the spread this year.

In December, weather reports become more important than ever. Those must be looked at before you make a decision. It is also important to look at division records. If one of the teams in a game has nothing left to play for, it could sway your decision in the right direction.

If you’ve been riding a team all season, it’s time to reassess the situation and reevaluate if that team’s point spreads are now inflated. Carolina and Arizona both fall into that category from this point forward.

There are no more bye weeks, so we have a full slate of games going forward. If you’re down on the season, it’s now time to make it up and get in the black before the playoffs.

We pick every NFL game against the spread and throw out a few upsets in Week 14 of the NFL season.

Fantasy Football Start/Sit – Week 4

Peyton Manning Colin Kaepernick FantasyFantasy football reared her ugly head last weekend. You had some stars suffering bad fantasy weeks and some bench players coming up big.

The bye weeks begin this week with the Carolina Panthers and Green Bay Packers sitting this week out. Fantasy owners will need to replace Cam Newton, Aaron Rodgers, Reggie Cobb, Steve Smith, Jordy Nelson and James Jones in their lineups.

I hope I helped out fantasy owners last week. I had some good calls (Snelling, Moreno, Cameron), but missed on Pierre Garcon. I feel confident this week’s edition of Fantasy Football Start/Sit will help fantasy owners win in Week 4. Continue reading
