49ers apologize for leaving Kaepernick photos out of gallery

This gallery of 49ers vs. Packers games was the first one the team posted this season.

"We're looking into. how that happened and we're trying to rectify it", general manager John Lynch said on KNBR 680-AM.

But the gallery originally withheld pictures of Colin Kaepernick, who led the 49ers to three wins over Green Bay in the 2012 and 2013 seasons, including two playoff victories.

"I just learned about it a couple of minutes ago", Lynch said on the "Murph & Mac" show. "It's a glaring omission and we're working to get it fixed".

"We have fond memories of those games and that should have been displayed on our website", the team said.


Colin Kaepernick set an National Football League record for quarterbacks by rushing for 181 yards in a playoff win against Green Bay on January 12, 2013. "This oversight does not properly reflect the appreciation our ownership and this team have for Colin".

"Unfortunately there were a handful of obvious misses in this gallery posted by our website team and we appreciate them being brought to our attention", the 49ers said in a statement. "Anyone who is a fan of football, let alone 49er fans, knows that he has a great part of history against the Packers".

The 49ers supported Kaepernick in 2016 when he made a decision to kneel during the national anthem to protest social and racial injustice and matched his $1 million contribution toward programs for social equality. He also threw for 413 yards in a season-opening win against them in 2013, and led a winning drive to win a playoff game in Green Bay on January 5, 2014.

Kaepernick has been a free agent for the past two seasons after opting out of his contract with the 49ers in March 2017.

"There was (talk) past year and I think I made that decision, just with the style of offence that we wanted to go with", Shanahan said.
