It's actually the exact opposite of this. Luck's style of play has much longer longevity. Kaepernick is going to have to adjust as he loses the ability to run past people. Playing from inside the pocket EVERY play is very different than what Kaep is doing.
Luck is the truth.
Any 49er fan who acts like Kaepernick only relies on running by defenders should be ashamed of themselves. The guy would still be a legitimate top-flight QB if he never ran beyond the line of scrimmage again.
Andrew Luck is the Peyton Manning/Tom Brady type pocket passer, which is great. But Kaepernick cannot even be compared to anyone because he has been a superior passer to any running QB and obviously a superior runner to any pure passer. He can actually do both. He is a pure passer with the ability to run, not the other way around. If you don't agree with this, you might want to rewatch the games, minus the Packers game, which is really the only game that his legs took over.
