Does Blaine Gabbert deserve a chance to start in 2016?

Expectations were sky high for quarterback Blaine Gabbert coming out of the NFL draft. Gabbert was picked 10th overall by the Jacksonville Jaguards in 2011 and was thought to be the franchise’s savior.

Blaine Gabbert shedding 'bust' label with second chance

A Blaine Gabbert press conference is the loneliest place in the world

It’s been a bit of a depressing season for San Francisco 49ers fans with the former perennial contender taking a nosedive after an offseason exodus like the NFL has never seen.  Players retiring in their prime, players getting injured, players joining new teams.  Oh, and the old coach who was run out of town seems to be doing pretty well for himself at his new gig. But when the...

The Blaine Gabbert Era in San Francisco begins

It may come as a surprise to some, but Blaine Gabbert is only 26 years old. He was the 10th overall selection in the 2011 NFL Draft, and now, for this weekend anyway, he’s the starting quarterback of the San Francisco 49ers.
