Colin Kaepernick got his "welcome to the NFL" moment on Friday night, and it wasn't so pretty. After scrambling for two yards, only to see it called back for an illegal block above the waist penalty, Kaepernick connected with Lance Long on a 20-yard pass. That was great, but the next three plays demonstrate what he may be facing in San Francisco this year.â†µ
1-10 C.Kaepernick sacked at NO 41 for -1 yardsâ†µ
2-11 C.Kaepernick sacked, fumbles
3-16 C.Kaepernick sacked at SF 48 for -6 yards
Beautiful protection there by the 49ers. Three plays, three sacks and Kaepernick was headed to the sidelines. Keep your head on a swivel, kid.
