Colin Kaepernick has his own critique for former quarterback Trent Dilfer after the analyst questioned the ability of San Francisco's QB to adjust in the passing game: Unless you're with the 49ers day-to-day, watch what you say.

When told that Dilfer had called out Kaepernick's skill to adapt when his first read isn't there following a 10-9 loss to the Carolina Panthers, Kaepernick reminded everyone Wednesday that he hasn't changed from the player who led San Francisco back to the Super Bowl for the first time in 18 years last season. He also pointed out that Dilfer is not at team headquarters regularly — or working alongside Kaepernick like his teammates do — nor does he know what the quarterback's progression is supposed to be for a given game plan.
