Former 49ers QB Jeff Garcia offers Colin Kaepernick a helping hand

Published 6 Comments

San Francisco 49ers terrible end to the season has been made worse by the sharp decline of star quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

The 49ers pinned their hopes on the dual-threat quarterback two years ago, and a Super Bowl appearance and an NFC Championship Game loss followed in two disappointing yet promising seasons.

However, the 2014 season has been cruel to Kaepernick and the Niners, with the signal caller succumbing to an array of passing accuracy issues.

Kaepernick has a believer 

Some believe he will never lead the 49ers to their sixth Lombardi Trophy, but former 49ers superstar QB Jeff Garcia still believes in Kaepernick.

However, Garcia agrees with the majority of the critical media that say Kaepernick has lost his way this year, but rather than jump on the bandwagon, Garcia says he wants to help the Niners QB turn his career around.

Garcia wants to help

"As somebody who played the position for a long time and didn't fit the stereotype, who had to overcome the odds and battle, not just on a yearly basis but a daily basis just to prove himself, I know a lot of what it takes in order to achieve at that position," Garcia explained, reported. "And I'd be more than happy to help him out any way I can."

Whether Kaepernick will be open to the offer remains to be seen, but Garcia's desire to help seems genuine. 

"If he's open to it, hey, I'd love nothing more than to be someone who can help him continue to grow."
