no love for CK?
Lol he sounds like you've actually seen him play? Or are you simply saying meh because he's not 1st round pick rated?
I think colin will surprise us when we see him for the first time in preseason games, he should get a following quickly much like nate davis did(of course that means very little till real games start like we saw with nate), both definitely have a stronger arm than smith... and lets face it we're tired of a qb who both isn't very accurate in short throws AND can't throw a long ball with any kind of explosiveness...
Just from what I've been reading, it sounds like colin's been accurate with an explosive arm. I think we wouldn't have drafted him if we thought we were going to draft another qb next year. Harbaugh has his man to develop, trust that he can do it.
My opinion and argument of Kaepernick starts here: Link
His passing yards and accuracy stats are padded. He threw a lot of screens and did a lot of dinking and dunking in college.
In short, I think he will struggle to make the transition to a NFL starting QB.
Lol this part made me laugh, when you said "Now why is Nate Davis more of a project than Kaepernick?? Why, because of draft status, seems to be the only reason."
Or because nate davis has the IQ of a 5 year old, no hope to ever learn a playbook even one as simple as Singletary's "hand it to frank gore up the middle" playbook.
A lot of players are from gimmicky offenses, Sam bradford was and he stepped right in and played. Or you can get an alex smith, you never know simply by what kind of system they were from. Certainly he is not manning or bradford, but I think that he STILL may outplay smith and surprise a ton of us by the time preseason is over.
We only use a draft pick on a top qb next season if kaepernick for sure looks hopeless, because otherwise there are plenty of other issues to address and QB's simply TAKE TIME, so if you get the next hot QB prospect every year you'll never really have given any of them a real shot to learn the system, the panthers just knew matt moore wasn't going to ever be the face of the franchise so they went ahead and got a top one. And you only know whether he's a matt moore or a sam bradford by waiting and seeing him play, everything I've heard about him so far has been positive, about his accuracy and explosive arm.
