After a poor start to the season, people are already questioning if Colin Kaepernick should be the starting quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers moving forward.
The 49ers currently have a record of 1-2 so far this season after three games, but Kaepernick hasn't been playing up to the standard of a starting quarterback.
Across the first three games, the 27-year-old has completed 59 of his 91 attempts for 567 yards, two touchdowns, but four interceptions. All four interceptions came in last week's 7-47 defeat to the Arizona Cardinals.

This has caused many to question whether or not he should be given the starting role under center anymore. 49ers Head Coach Jim Tomsula, however, hasn't given it a thought about Kaepernick not being his starter.
"I've had no thoughts of him not being our quarterback," Tomsula said, according to Cam Inman of the Bay Area News Group. "He's our quarterback."
It might be too soon to question Kaepernick's role at the 49ers, but you have to see why people are asking. The performances we've seen are a lot less than the ones that caused the NFC West side to reach the NFC Championship game in back-to-back seasons in 2012 and 2013.
Blimey, if Kaepernick had won Super Bowl XLVII against the Baltimore Ravens, we probably wouldn't even be having this conversation. The 49ers just need to give him a chance like they are doing.
After all, with Blaine Gabbert as the backup, it's not like they don't have any other choice in the matter.
