Hardball on the best quarterback coaches in the league he's gonna have an opportunity Rose Bowl something here. And that's worse strange journey started. On day two of 2011. NFL draft the forty niners traded up with a bronze goes to select Colin Cameron because the fourth pick in the second round the rumor has it did Jim Harbaugh wanted can't predict so bad they needed in the first round. GM trends help keep all night long which is why San Francisco traded up.

However in week twelve and Alex Smith suffered a concussion in the first half of the rams game and it's happening. Finally got his shot. Colin got his first NFL start on November 19 during a Monday Night Football game against the Chicago Bears and it was pretty obvious. Two waves roaring candlestick. A new alarm. I was in town. GAAP earnings completed sixteen of 23 passes for 246. Yards and two touchdowns he was 830 to seven laugher over what was a pretty good bears' defense on the quarterback controversy. Officially begun. The 49ers would reach the playoffs for a second consecutive year can't predict what the league on notice in his first ever career playoff start. 49ers beat the Packers 4531. I can't predict sentenced NFL single game record for most rushing yards by quarterback. Yeah 181.

Briggs I did everyone's so much from in the NFC championship game jam break in the 49ers who rallied to beat the falcons 20/20 four completing sixteen of 21 for 233 yards and a touchdown. The team would head to New Orleans to take on the regions in the Super Bowl. It's a horrible which cash burning through for a touchdown he ran for another look at the 49ers fell behind early could not come back. And from inside the five yard line Frank Gore. Never touched the ball so. It was on to 2013. As defending conference champions can't predict that more tattoos there was a little bit more kissing you by September and again was now officially a thing and he was still winning football games you led the 49ers into Lambeau Field just frozen tundra and nose bleeds to be found and he beat Aaron Rodgers and the Packers in the playoffs again the following week cabernet downed tools Cam Newton in Carolina which set up the date when Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks. Remember boys and girls Seahawks in niners used to be the NFL's heavyweight fight. Allen got the team down close to the end zone before it was all said and done. Richard Sherman become a household name I. Now. Brutal loss that prevented the 49ers from returning to the Super Bowl it. What would you know yeah. It would be the beginning of the end. Jim Harbaugh era this Seahawks would take over from that moment on it's the NFC west powerhouse the bloom and also came off to capital grows quickly. No the team was committed to won't it. They were definitely wary of long term viability and you can see it in the paperwork is the 49ers head governing sign one of the most. Teen friendly deals in the NFL history. How big my motivation is money through this just gives me all the more reason to go out and try to prove today. I can live up to expectations I can try to help this organization has made some balls as possible. It wasn't just the money Colleen didn't make in his contract that started to define him on September 17 candidate was fine by the NFL for using inappropriate language on the field. On October 9 he was fine 101000 dollars by the NFL for appearing in a post game press conference wearing headphones from beats bytes re Vonta Leach headphones sponsor was close. The 49ers finished eighth. Pedestrian eight made it feel to make the playoffs for the first time since 2010. And then off season and head coach Jim Harbaugh yeah. God mutually burning. In 2015. Japanese struggled under new head coach Jim Tom Zoolander Japanese lost his starting job to Blaine Gabbert for a week nine against Atlanta 49ers and then all of a sudden announced candidate could miss the rest of the season due to an injured left shoulder that required surgery and in benching. Diagnosed by fifteen in February 2016. Cameron makes said he wanted to be traded Tom Sula got canned after one year in Chip Kelly was named coach stand still hoping for the best of Colin we're excited about the prospects of Italian Catholic something that we all dreamed of killing was an Oregon and captain NN that the excitement stated he. Before it even started. Hampered by his return from surgery ending girlfriend. Who technically broken the 49ers locker room when she left olden Smith Fort Collins happening just a few years ago well Colin it's been his offseason not resigning his game but getting. While as the kids say in his biceps stronger. Music Afro groove or. And what came next it was one of the biggest and NFL story lines of the year. FL quarterback is under fire this morning from making a political statement by sitting on the bench during the playing of the National Anthem. The controversy is causing some fans say jerseys on fire. We ultimately is great awareness in making. No bill. Things that are going on there and just people are being held accountable for. And this okay. It's only sixteen final pre season to another cabernet acquiesced a little bit opted to needle instead of just sitting during the USC and done and got a big assist Truman US military veteran navy lawyer. But no matter how you want to look at in new conversation started. Damage had been done yeah. Nothing Colin could do on the field ever read defines him. Outside of the protest all of last season Colin definitely served his protests well. As far as the niners offensive huddle he didn't serve well at all. Kelly named Garrett is the starter for 2016. And basically. Watched him play himself to the bench saying that cavern it needed to get stronger and healthier. That magic equation or whatever it's just sold by week six we'd seen enough of playing yeah. Cameron made his first start of the season. It was announced that the 49ers had to restructure his contract turning it into week two year deal with the even more misdeed clauses of the design one now for Colin. In the play and let's be honest it was atrocious and it was an all his ball on the offensive line is putrid the running game was injured. He had no one catching passes for him when he would come into town he was a one man political movement not a quarterback to ask leading questions to and that was probably best highlighted when he in November of 2016. Was confronted by Miami Herald reporter Armonk dose of girl who knew a little bit more about Fidel Castro. Then let's say Colin did. I'm not talking about Fidel Castro and it was very you know nothing about my next. We are talking about England and even though there. OK dude is very high Blair do you rate because hey the Martin Laird. Thank you Canadians did not know meg doing a great group or not only do we not. You years that didn't stop Collins from rocking and T shirts and Afro picks and using his new angry. Vigilante. Protesters personas to find him at times we'll and other times he's very attentive schoolchildren. And speaking in a manner that no one really expected from the dying. Hadn't said much during his entire career. Maybe long and sad season came to a sputtering and didn't from the sale of the smallest home crowds the 49ers have never seen the year finished two and fourteen jedi could fire both Trampolsky. And Chip Kelly in new machine step in when John Lynch and Kyle Shanahan and just a few days ago. On March 3 2017. Champ Riddick officially opted out of his contract for the 49ers in options and as part of his restructured contract therefore. Making your free agent and beginning. Yeah 2017. Year. No matter what you thought oh no matter how you felt. Whether you were outraged we're personally thankful for college cavernous protest and one thing that I think we can all agree on is this. So when it's one of the hottest journeys ever made in 49 I had. I'm seeing here too. Effective quarterback and magnets for controversy over his future holds nothing but uncertain dean and he says his protest is over and now in America he's in worse shape than seemingly politically it's ever. The timing is odd that everything is on about Colin Katherine experiment it started with a roaring in San Francisco. And went out with a whimper in Santa Clara. Colin can't prediction in a niner uniforms. Stranger things. Yeah. I.
