49ers Name Colin Kaepernick, Blaine Gabbert Co-Starting Quarterbacks

Kapernick became the 49ers starting quarterback in Week 11 of the 2012 NFL season. He led the team to Super Bowl XLVII, where they lost to the Baltimore Ravens. In the 2013 season, Kaepernick threw for 3,197 yards and 21 touchdowns to just eight interceptions. After Kaepernick rushed for an NFL record 181 yards against the Green Bay Packers, the 49ers were back in the NFC Championship Game against their rival Seattle Seahawks.

The 49ers were one pass away from getting back to the Super Bowl. Kapernick threw a pass to the end zone that was tipped by Richard Sherman and intercepted by Earl Thomas III.

Since then, his numbers have fallen. In 2014, he threw for a career high 3,369 yards, but he also threw for two less touchdowns and two more interceptions. In 2015, after throwing for six touchdowns and five touchdowns, he lost his starting job to Gabbert.
