Colin Kaepernick takes the blame after San Francisco 49ers suffer huge loss

Published 1 Comments

The San Francisco 49ers were absolutely destroyed by the Arizona Cardinals last night. 

The 49ers, under new head coach Jim Tomsula, were crushed in a resounding 47-7 scoreline that shows just how much work the NFC West team have ahead of them if they want to reach the playoffs this year.

Kaepernick Speaks Out

But the blame for the loss can't go on Tomsula. Instead, quarterback Colin Kaepernick stepped up to take the heat, admitting that he was absolutely awful against the Cardinals.

Kaepernick had the worst day of his career in Arizona, completing only nine of 19 passes with four interceptions, generating a passer rating of 16.7.

After the game, Kaepernick took ownership of the 47-7 debacle, according to  Cam Inman of the San Jose Mercury News.

“There’s nothing anyone in that locker room could have done to change that game the way I played today,” Kaepernick said. According to Inman, Kaepernick’s voice “slightly cracked” as he accepted “100 percent” of the blame for the outcome. 

The quarterback then went on to add that he was greatly disappointed with his play and how it cost his team so dearly.

“It’s very hard for me to deal with, very hard to see myself go out and play like that and hurt this team the way I did,” Kaepernick said. “I nullified all the efforts of every other player on that field today, and that’s something I have to fix for this team moving forward.”

Kaepernick has a lot of improving to do if the 49ers want to make the playoffs this year. If he doesn't show any signs of progress then San Francisco may just take a flier on a new Quarterback come draft day.
