San Francisco 49ers WR Jerry Rice has a message for the 49ers organization…BENCH QB Colin Kaepernick. Rice spoke about why benching Kaepernick may be beneficial via TMZ Sports.
“I am a true Kaepernick fan. 100 percent. I’m not saying bench him for the season, but sometimes you gotta shake things up. It could energize the team, and provide Colin the spark he needs,” Rice said.
Ok ppl relax . I didn't say bench Kap for the year. Bill Walsh would let players get there head together . Kap is the future for the niners.

“Look, when I came in, I struggled. I dropped balls. And I wasn’t used to that. But I had great people around me, and I got through it,” Rice added.
“The 49ers aren’t a cohesive group right now. They’re making way too many mistakes. It’s not only Kaepernick, there’s plenty of blame to go around.”
“The team has to decide. Are they gonna throw the towel in, or are they gonna fight through it?”
