Preseason Week 3 will finally answer the question on every fans mind. Can 49eres quarterback Colin Kaepernick regain control of his team, and lead them back to the playoffs? Niner Noise previews the match-up, that in hindsight, will be referred to as the pivotal game of the off-season for San Francisco.
Quarterback Colin Kaepernick has yet to take the field this preseason for the San Francisco 49ers.
With two games left until the start of the regular season, who will lead the franchise?
Will it be Kaepernick? The man who lead the team to Super Bowl XLVII, or will it be quarterback Blaine Gabbert, the man who took the starting job away from Kaepernick midway through last season?
To make matters more complicated, where does quarterback Christian Ponder fit in?
Last week against the Denver Broncos, the 49ers looked well-balanced on both sides of the ball.
The pass rush looked unstoppable — getting to the quarterback a total of six times — while the offensive line looked unbeatable allowing only one quarterback sack.
Together, they led the team to a 31-24 victory.
This week Kaepernick gets the start against the Green Bay Packers. For the 49ers to come out on top, the team must play aggressive from start to finish.
