After fourth straight loss, Kaepernick says 49ers can still go 12-4

The 49ers lost their fourth consecutive game on Sunday night to fall to 1-4 on the season, but quarterback Colin Kaepernick has not lost his confidence.

“We still have 11 more games,” Kaepernick said. “We still have the opportunity to go 12-4.”

That is technically true, just as it’s technically true that Kaepernick still has the opportunity to be the MVP this year and Jim Tomsula still has the opportunity to be Coach of the Year. Realistically, the 49ers look like one of the worst teams in the NFL.

Although he fumbled twice and the 49ers ultimately fell short, Kaepernick had his best game of the season on Sunday night. He completed 23 of 35 passes for 262 yards, with two touchdowns and no interceptions. It was a solid all-around game. But Kaepernick still has a lot of work to do. And the 49ers still look like a last-place team.
