Kaepernick, easily. Dalton was the more ready guy by far, but also had a substantially lower ceiling, what you're seeing from him this season is about as good as its ever going to get.

Yea I agree. I was upset when we got CK though. I felt like Dalton was the guy we really wanted.

Not upset any more.

Not an inaccurate statement, I've always seen him as a solid game manager type, he's been blessed to play with one of the few #1 WR's in football, but otherwise, I wouldn't expect much more in the future.

Sounds familiar.....
Ponder is really up and down
He had a really good game last week so he is prone to being cold this week. I think if Webb keeps the ball safe 28 will rip through the Packers D and to ATL

I think we play the Seahawks one more time

yee of little faith.

Dalton was the safe choice, Kaep was the risk. So far it looks like the Niners will be rewarded for taking the risk. Kaep has top 5 potential, while Dalton will always be top 10-15.

I simply disagree. Does he have the athletic ability or ceiling of Kaep? No, but to say a QB like Dalton has nothing more than what he has shown, when he has brought his team to back to back playoff births and is only in his second season is ludicrous. He will get better. Two big missed catches by Green. If he catches those its a totally differant ballgame right now.

Yea no joke I was a huge CK hater til this year, haha. Never liked Alex Smith either, though, so I was in favor of Kaep taking over after that great Bears game.

It's so awesome to be excited about a young 49er QB for the future with potential like CK.

Sometimes you forget that he's only started like 8 games.
Wow Cincy could still take this

Pretty close to our average.
