San Francisco 49ers: Colin Kaepernick Practice Jersey Another Testament to Jim Harbaugh
Jim Harbaugh struck me as a unique mind that would find ways to give his team an edge during training camp from his first summer as head coach of the San Francisc0 49ers. Word out of Northern California back in 2011 was that his Niners were approaching the post-lockout period with not only a great vigor, but a greater physicality compared to the norm in camp.
Whether coincidentally or not, San Fran blew teams off the ball to start the season and established themselves quickly as the pleasant surprise of 2011. Now Harbaugh’s crew is taking the polar opposite, yet very interesting approach when it comes to quarterback Colin Kaepernick. After a practice incident where Niners linebackers got a bit to close, Harbaugh responded by making Kaep’s jersey a bit more hideous/noticeable.
“And (I) felt like as the defense was running a stunt, and Ahmad (Brooks) came free and was a little too close to Colin,” Harbaugh said, via CSNBayArea.com. “So (the jersey is) a way to re-emphasize to stay away from Colin Kaepernick, so we don’t get anything freakish happen in practice.” Kaepernick scoffed at the treatment, which is to be expected from a mindset that can play such a brutally dangerous game. “It didn’t scare me at all. Not a fan of the jersey.”
Kaepernick’s recent GQ appearance indicates that the man is a fan of fashion, and the hideously aggressive shade of red in the No. 7 on his practice jersey clearly did not sit well. Harbaugh clearly cares little for such things, isolating the most crucial remaining variable for Kaepernick in the waning stages of training camp — his health. The projected No. 2 is Colt McCoy.
