break because it's august and it's fire season but this is pretty amazing for us right now to have this kind of weather at a time -- there's that fog too. that's a live camera shot. the fog builds in. isn't that interesting? but this fog is part of the reason we're seeing a higher fuel moistures. this time of year we're on pins and needles. it would be lined up with 90s and low 100s. that's not how it's going. today was a nice day, little milder than the day before. as we head toward the weekend, this low kicks in to further cool things off. when that comes back this way, still be a bit of fog near the coast but just gonna be a mild day around the bay area this entire weekend so just gonna be cooler. the one thing you'll notice, i should have stopped on that.

trevor was not a happy camper in the dugout. kendall, six and two-thirds for the victory. san francisco 49ers will be in action at levi stadium, green bay packers friday. everybody seems interested in talking act their quarterback situation. what was gonna happen, what would transpire under chip kelly. two games into the preseason, we don't know a whole lot more than we did when the whole thing started. joe fonzi has the story. >> when training camp opened, the quarterback position was characterized as a straight up battle between blaine and colin. then the exhibition season began and kaepernick was held out of the first two games with a sore shoulder. gabber was taken the majority of the snaps with the number
6:54 pm
one offense. kaepernick is still healthy and feels he has a fair shot to be the starter. >> most definitely. i'll go out and show everything i got the next two games to show this organization, this team, this coaching staff what i'm capable of. >> that goes bit against conventional wisdom. game three of preseason is usually the one that best resembles the team's identity when it plays games that count. >> typically that's the case. >> now, getting his first playing time of the season, kaepernick will have to take a different path. also consider, the whole chip kelly offense is new this year. >> similar to what i did in college, at this point, i don't think there's any reason for me to be cautious and feel uncomfortable in the offense. excited about what we're capable of doing and opportunities we do have. >> when it comes to determining who the starting quarterback will be for ma monday night opener against the rams, we really are no further along right now than we were when
6:55 pm
training camp opened. game three of the preseason should at least provide answers. 49er training camp, joe fonzi, ktvu news 2. >> make a prediction on that. i predict colin kaepernick will not play at all this year. they're gonna keep him on eyes and uninjured and -- ice and uninjure and had they're done with him. they want to make sure he doesn't get hurt. >> blaine then? >> i think blaine it is the guy. that's what i predict. check with me later. >> oh, we will. let's talk raiders also in action. tennessee titan for them this weekend. last outing not a write home to mom and tell them what happened at lambeau field in green bay. derrick car and the rest of the offense as a matter of fact didn't have a whole lot to brag about but some nice thingings
6:56 pm
for derrick. be talk act how he likes to use the preseason games as a chance to work on gambling techniques and throws that he might need during the regular season. >> it's a great opportunity to see what you can get away with. it really .s i take that really to heart and do it. i try not to do it too much but obviously i will do it during the preseason. i did it a couple times here and there and a great time to do those things because when you hit week one, you won't try something new and just do what you're gonna do. >> we have another quarterback to talk about. the stanford quarterback, they don't open their season till a week from friday against kansas state but today david shaw saying there's very little separation between the two contenders but named senior ryan burns as his quarterback starter. he's got a good arm and can move in the pocket and in that way reminds you in terms of
6:57 pm
stature and ability to break out of the pocket of andrew luck, who's got a ways to go to meet that criteria all the way around and son of former 49er offensive coordinator. >> jeep kris. >> yeah, he's the backup guy but will play some they said in the first game. very little separation between the two. >> interesting. >> got it. >> thanks, mark. our coverage continues right now on ktvu plus. we have disturbing video of a woman being attacked, a random attack and police hope seeing this video will help catch the suspect. the good news for the oakland as, the stadium is in oakland. show it to you next on the 7 on ktvu plus.

then those dark matter discoveries must be wrong. yes, well, if we lived in a world where slow-moving xenon produced light, then you'd be correct. also, pigs would fly, my derriere would produce cotton candy, and the phantom menace would be a timeless classic. oh, you're so arrogant. if you were a superhero, your name would be captain arrogant. and you know what your superpower would be? arrogance. you're wrong again. if my superpower were arrogance, my name would be dr. arroganto. i love watching raj and sheldon try to work together. yeah, it's like if alien and predator decided to go partners in a jamba juice. has it occurred to you you're missing the big picture? if you look at neutron scattering data... oh, penny? penny? what's up? nothing. i just wanted to make raj stop talking. (whispering) no, no, no. he won. suck it up. well, i'd ask you guys if you want dessert, but i know sheldon doesn't eat dessert on tuesdays. and even if raj wanted something, he couldn't tell me.
