Sio Moore: Kaepernick a 'chump'

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Raiders linebacker Sio Moore didn't get enough of hassling 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick during Oakland's 24-13 win over San Francisco, so he took to Instagram to go after Kaepernick some more.

Moore posted a photograph of him and Kaepernick standing face-to-face and calling the 49ers quarterback a "chump" in the caption.

There's a difference between boys and Men... Freakin chump

The Raiders hounded Kaepernick into throwing two interceptions Sunday. He was sacked five times, was knocked around several other times and finished with a passer rating of 54.4.

Moore made only one tackle, dropping Kaepernick for a 7-yard loss on the opening play of San Francisco's second possession. He later danced around the field during an injury timeout in the second half.

This isn't the first time Moore has been in the spotlight this season. During Oakland's 24-20 win over Kansas City in Week 12, he nearly cost the Raiders a shot at winning when he broke into an excessive and lengthy celebration 30 yards behind the line of scrimmage after sacking Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith, even as the Chiefs were lined up to snap the ball. Only an alert timeout by Justin Tuck prevented Moore from being a scapegoat.

Raiders coach Tony Sparano on Monday addressed all the media attention generated by Moore's postgame post.

"I guess it has kind of got out there and it seems to have gotten some attention, but I just know that Sio plays with a lot of passion," Sparano said. "A young player, plays with a lot of passion, and that part of it I like. I need to sit down, I need to visit with Sio, find out exactly what went on, but I know there was a lot of jawing going on out there and it wasn't just one-sided."
