NFL: 49ers' Jim Harbaugh Names Colt McCoy as Backup QB

San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh named Colt McCoy as Colin Kaepernick's official backup on Sunday.

San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh has made it official: Colt McCoy is his backup quarterback. 

This was what Harbaugh declared moments after the 49ers' 34-14 preseason victory over the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday, per CSN Bay Area. He said,"I feel real good about Colt as the backup quarterback." 

McCoy said everything transpired quickly, as he agreed to new contract terms -- a pay cut from his original $1.5 million salary -- just a day before the game. 

"It really happened quick. This is a tremendous team. It's well-coached. It's a great organization from top to bottom. And when I was approached. This is personal, but I'm glad to be here. That's new to me. I've never done anything like that. But it's all fine.

"Jim and I had a great week. We talked and met a lot. Between us, I think we figured each other out a lot better."

Mark Purdy of the San Jose Mercury News recalls McCoy got off to a slow start during his first series against the Vikings as he threw an interception. However, he was able to regain his composure after that, producing a field goal and a touchdown.

He admitted he wasn't himself when he first took the field. He said,"I hadn't performed the way I know I can perform -- maybe I was thinking a little too much." 

For the game, McCoy was 11 of 15 for 109 yards and an interception.  

McCoy was acquired by the 49ers in April when he, together with a sixth-round draft pick, was shipped to San Francisco by his former team, the Cleveland Browns, in exchange for a fifth- and seventh-round draft pick. 

His appointment as Colin Kaepernick's backup comes on the heels of an NFL.com report that he might get traded earlier in the day.

Blaine Gabbert remains the No. 2 QB for 49ers-Broncos

Aug 15 2014 5:45pm CDT | Source: ninersnation

The 49ers backup quarterback position is in flux as far as fans are concerned. Maybe Jim Harbaugh has mostly made his decision at this point. The San Francisco 49ers head into their second preseason game with question marks surrounding the quarterback position. Not THAT quarterback position. While Colin Kaepernick is the starter for years to come, the backup spot is in a bit of a bind. Blaine Gabbert looked abysmal last Thur ...

Aug 9 2014 8:00am CDT | Source: ninersnation

Blaine Gabbert, as it turns out, is not overburdened with job security. This isn't hot off the presses or anything, but just in case you missed it: San Francisco 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh said that the backup quarterback job is up for grabs, in so many words. That was following the brutal 23-3 loss at the hands of the Baltimore Ravens, in which Blaine Gabbert stunk the place up some ...

The hosting Washington Redskins dominated the New England Patriots 23-6 in both teams' preseason opener on Thursday at FedEx Field. As is often the case, much of the emphasis in this game went on second-stringers and, in particular, the No. 2 quarterbacks on each side. Washington's dynamic starting signal-caller Robert Griffin III got little work, putting the ball in the hands of his 2012 draft cl ...
