Colin Kaepernick: 49ers Have Talent, Coaches to Win Super Bowl

Posted Jul 23, 2014

The San Francisco 49ers quarterback met with the media on day one of training camp.

Colin Kaepernick looked at ease on Wednesday.

He wasn't going through progressions or looking to fit a downfield pass into a tight window.

Those challenging moments will be on the way.

For now, the San Francisco 49ers quarterback only had to face the media on day one of training camp.

Even so, tough questions were presented his way.

Kaepernick was pleased to see Vernon Davis report to camp and declined to get into specifics on the whereabouts of Alex Boone. Instead, Kaepernick used his six-minute session to discuss the state of the 49ers offense. He talked about how it compares to this time last year when Kaepernick entered the year as a full-time starter for the first time.

"I think we're further along than last year," Kaepernick, the fourth-year pro said. "Going into camp we have a lot more weapons and a lot more health on offense. It's something I'm excited about and this team is excited about."

The health comment referred to the status of sixth-year wideout Michael Crabtree, who missed training camp and 11 regular season games due to a torn Achilles tendon. Crabtree showed excellent burst this offseason and figured to be a top option in the passing game once again.

As for the quarterback's own workload, Kaepernick said he's been able to get ahead of the game by joining the rookies this week in on-field workouts. Kaepernick noted that a lot of his new teammates were trying to impress in the pre-camp practice sessions.

"I'm excited to see what happens when we really get the pads on," Kaepernick said.

The 49ers first practice is scheduled for Thursday. The first padded session will be on Saturday.

Training camp will allow Kaepernick to further develop his chemistry with his reloaded receiving corps.

"You don't have to worry about matchups as much," Kaepernick said. "I'm very excited about it. I want to get the ball in their hands and see what they can do with it. I know they're going to be competing just like everyone else."

Kaepernick said the whole team enters camp with the motivation of taking home the franchise's sixth Super Bowl title.

"I think this team has the talent, we have the coaching staff to win a Super Bowl," Kaepernick said. "Now it's just time to go out and do it."
