Girlfriends, Tattoos and Twitter - Colin Kaepernick Deals with Distractions and a Slow Start
Think back to only one year ago - Colin Kaepernick was the back up quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers at this time last season and all of the pressure was on Alex Smith, the starter for the first half of last season.
One year ago - not many fans or news outlets were worried about Colin Kaepernick's girlfriend or how many tattoos he has all over his body or what he was tweeting out on Twitter.
A lot fewer San Francisco 49ers fans were following the quarterback on Twitter and Kaepernick was the guy that would infrequently enter the game for Alex Smith only to head back to the sidelines after a play or two.
Smith would suffer a concussion later in the year and CK got the starting job and never surrendered the job - taking the team all the way to the Super Bowl, only to lose to the Baltimore Ravens.
One year later - Smith (who was traded to Kansas City in the off-season) has lead the Chiefs to a 5-0 start and in San Francisco, CK is the man, but his start hasn't been what was expected.
S.F. is 27th in the league in passing and Colin's stats are very average.
He has 5 TDs, 4 INT's and a QB rating of 81.0.
He's lost 3 fumbles, too.
The 49ers have looked average in the first four games of the National Football League season and now have only a 2-2 record.
The 49ers play tonight on Sunday Night Football at home against the Houston Texans and it can be made a little bit better with a big win.
When Colin was asked about his haters on Twitter and responded this way:
"It lets you know that there are people that still think you aren’t where you should be. It’s kind of like what Coach Harbaugh tells us sometimes: ‘When people start talking really good about you, that’s when you need to be worried.’"
Is Kaepernick dating a Playboy model or a world class athlete?
Colin was linked to U.S. Olympic soccer player Sydney Leroux earlier this year after both posed for the ESPN Body Issue, but he has denied they are dating.
Bryiana Noelle is a beautiful Playboy model (see her here in a bikini) and she hinted on Twitter that wants to date Colin in an interview earlier this year.
It's unclear is she was just looking for a little extra coverage for her Miss September pictorial, or if she was serious about dating the young quarterback.
The 49ers are 4 point favorites tonight over the Houston Texans in tonight's game and CK will be featured in prime time on Sunday Night Football.
Kaepernick can quiet some of the criticism with a huge game against a really tough Texans' defense.
Check Twitter after the game - he may just have something to say.
