Colin Kaepernick Leads Offense, But Defense Powers San Francisco 49ers Past New Orleans Saints

Colin Kaepernick played well in his second career start, and the 49ers defense showed again that they are the best in the league. With Kaepernick again having a good performance the only question is who is the team going to use under center for the rest of the season and beyond?

Alex Smith Remains Key to San Francisco 49ers’ Continued Success

For the 49ers to win in in the second half of the season and move forward in the playoffs, it will all come down to the play of Alex Smith. They will get consistent performances from the defense and special teams, so if the offense can do their part, then San Francisco is going to be tough to beat. The running game has been solid this year, and when the team loses it’s because they got nothing from Smith and the passing game.

Is Frank Gore The Best Running Back In 49ers History?

After another impressive performance for the 49ers, Frank Gore is slowly becoming on the best all around backs to ever grace the 49ers uniform. The ultimate goal has eluded him, but if the team can get him the ball early and often, they will be in a position to compete for a Super Bowl.

49ers Defy Logic, Enter Game Against Giants At Full Strength

Not only have the 49ers avoided the injury bug, but they have gotten more and more healthy. The lone name that is new is the most important player on the 49ers roster, Alex Smith. However, the injured finger on his right hand seems to be fine and of no real concern. The Giants on the other hand are missing a few starters on offense and will hope that Hakeem Nicks is able to play.
