Is the third time the charm? The 49ers really want Gabbert to win the role of No. 2 quarterback – they’ll owe him $2 million if he makes it or not – and they are giving him every opportunity to take the job. Gabbert has been a slow starter to this point. He needs to enter this game aggressively and to sustain at least one or two drives. If he doesn’t? Eh, he’ll probably make the team anyway.
