The offseason for the San Francisco 49ers has not come up short in giving us something to talk about, and some things that have made their fans confused, and quite honestly, upset. Still, quarterback Colin Kaepernick doesn't seem to let that bother him, while making sure he is concentrating on himself.

"Just go out and be you," said Kaepernick to the Nevada Appeal. "Nobody expects anything different. I've always tried to be myself."

The former Nevada Wolfpack quarterback was the keynote speaker at the Governor's Mansion in Carson City, Nevada this weekend, and he made sure to tell everyone he's more than confident about the 2015 season.

"My confidence level is always going to be the same," said Kaepernick. "I feel very confident in our team."

Of course, we're all curious to know how he feels about what some have defined as a "dumpster fire" of an offseason for the 49ers.

"Very excited for the season," he adds. "A lot of new faces in the locker room and a lot of new coaches. I think the changes are for the good."

With Kaepernick being an alum for the University of Nevada, Reno, he told the Nevada Appeal that when he first entered the NFL, there were not "that many Nevada players," but last season he said there was normally at least one Nevada player on the opposing team virtually every week.

"Nevada players don't get the same support other players have," says Kaepernick. "We have got high caliber athletes and high caliber people out there as well."

Agreed.

Home truly does mean Nevada, I suppose.
