5:41 pm
national anthem is well-known and his reasons for not voting in the presidential election a little less well hashed. >> i thought about the process and what i could and couldn't do. and you know once again the system of oppression is what i have an issue with. >> more than one way to create change. >> in addition to the social change there is a new and somewhat improved on the field kaepernick. sunday's game in arizona was probable the 49ers best since the win in week one. in the 4th game as a starter. kaepernick seem to be regaining the rhythm and consistency that made him the talk of the league four years ago. >> i can jump right back in and be a higher percent on top of my game. it took awhile to get in the rhythm and everything that is happening in the offense and becoming more and more every week that i feel comfortable with what is going on and how we are getting done and being
5:42 pm
able to build on those. >> one thing that can't be missed is much more willing to engage with the media than he was during jim harbaugh's tenure. >> i am comfortable with everything that i'm saying. what i represent and who i am and at that point there was a situation i didn't feel comfortable talking because i didn't want my word to be known. we have opportunities to win football games and that's my focus with the patriots and we have to do everything we can to get a win. >> the 7 weeks will determine kaepernick's future with the 49ers. he can choose to be a free agent when the season ends. >> you probably have to call these 7 weeks an audition process. kaepernick can decide if he wants to return to the 49ers, if not, how much from there is among the rest of the league while the 49ers can decide whether they want him to be
5:43 pm
part of a future that looks very uncertain. is this not unlike just about everything else concerning the 49ers. you are going well how will it turn out? i don't know. >> if he didn't return to the 49ers, do you see any teams wanting to pick up a collin kaepernick. >> it depends on how bad the quarterback situation is. but there is no question about the fact that there comes along with collin kaepernick a lot of baggage. do you want your press conferences dominated by things other than football. that is what coaches talk about when they talk about distractions and right or wrong as the cause may be many football coaches don't know there's such a thing because their entire life is about football, football. anything that detracts from that for probable most coaches is something that they are not real happy to have on their team. nice to see collin kaepernick talking and smiling because there was awhile there where it almost seemed like quite frankly his head got too big and he wasn't saying anything and a little too cool for school and now he is back
5:44 pm
to the real collin kaepernick and having fun on the field. >> it has been interesting to watch the evolution of him as we have watched him since the day he was first drafted. he was a very humble backup to alex smith when he was first here. and took a lot of direction and instruction from alex smith and then the starter and his answers became one word answers and two-word answers and maybe a product of the fact that his head coach didn't care if he talked to the media or not and now that he is a social activist, he is smiling and wants to talk to everybody. interesting, i guess would you have to say evolution to watch the young man these days. >> speaking of that, they are having a great season and it will be fun to see goth out there. >> and nice to have alex smith as the quarterback. interesting. thank you, joe. he saw a little boy in the water and did not hesitate jump into save him.
