Friday, September 12, 2014

What is Colin Kaepernick’s favorite part about Levi’s® Stadium?

“It’s newer,” he said.

When the San Francisco 49ers and their signal-caller take the field for “Sunday Night Football” against the Chicago Bears in Week 2, everything will be new.

Here’s what Kaepernick and his teammates said about the opening the new stadium…

  • “We want to start the season off right, start the stadium off right with a win. We’re fortunate enough to close out Candlestick with a win and it’d be nice to open this one up with a win as well.” — safety Eric Reid
  • “It’s going to be special. It’s going to be exciting. The (fans) definitely get loud, so we’re excited to get back home.” — fullback Bruce Miller
  • “It’s very special. To be back in front of your fans who are there for you 100 percent – and you can hear the snap–count and get off the ball. With a new stadium and ‘Sunday Night Football’ it’s going to be fun.” — running back Frank Gore
  • “To me football is football, it doesn’t matter when you play, where you play.” — Kaepernick
