The one-win Niners are back on the Kap Train.
Kaepernick was historically awful in last Sunday’s loss to the Bears. Hampered by the snowy elements, the former Super Bowl starter was 1-of-5 passing for just four yards before coach Chip Kelly yanked him in favor of low-wattage backup Blaine Gabbert. Sacked five times in defeat, Kaepernick became just the second quarterback since 1970 with more takedowns than passing yards in a single game.
“We had been playing good football on offense and the thing had been trending in the right direction,” Modkins said of Kaepernick’s handiwork prior to the Chicago implosion.
