I thought the read option was the perfect example of juking/faking out defenders. You point them in one direction then you take it another and leave the defender gasping for air. And when you try to diminish the rushing prowess of one QB that was the only in NCAA history to pass > 10000 yds and rush > 4000 yds then set an NFL rushing record for QBs at 181 yards in a PLAYOFF GAME, well then I think we are fishing for something here don't you think. Russ is more of a QB in a RB body that can perform most of the duties of both positions so I can see where he could be more elusive but that is not to say he is better at toting the pill when both game film and the statistics say otherwise. As for the injury issue, I can say that I hope both guys stay healthy and that Russ's MJD - like stature may indeed help him, but I think Colin will be alright being that he is coached by the QB guru Harbaugh and has an outstanding cast around him and he instinctively slides and gets out of bounds well enough already. BTW, during the game at the Superdome vs Saints, I thought Colin faked out 3 to 4 defenders rather nicely on a rushing TD from the redzone
What's Your Deal?? U Mad Bro?? or better yet, Did You Read My Post?? It seems you incorrectly assumed I was taking a shot at you. Peep this, I did not single out any of yours nor any other's posts for direct criticism thus the reason I didn't quote you. I was responding to a number of posts, some made by you and some made by 49er fans. I wasn't commenting to agitate nor to offend, I was simply stating my point of view on topics concerning this thread's title. I believe my generalized sentiment was that we may be fishing over insignificant things and might be overlooking the big picture which is that in the case of these 2 QBs they seem to be able to do significant and near unprecedented damage with both their feet and their arms.
They obviously get the job done differently and a lot of this is due to their respective physical makeup. I alluded to the fact that Wilson is built like a shifty, stocky, powerful RB and Kaep is more like a Calvin Johnson so yes in the open field you expect to see a little more Barry Sanders in Wilson than you would in Kaep but I don't think we can say he is more feared as a mobile QB than Kaep when it comes to hurting defenses on the ground. I was not disputing whether Wilson is elusive but simply that Kaep is a beast in his own right, he just gets the job done just as effectively if not moreso but in a different manner.
But like I said I didn't quote you specifically until now and as for posting the video, I was on my mobile phone and didn't have the time but I assume a lot of 49er fans saw the game anyway and the TD I am referring to is on NFL.com and it may not be much to some but to me I thought Kaep used his blocks and set up the defenders rather adequately to get his nose into the end zone as is customary for him throughout his career. No matter how it looks, he simply gets the job done as a dual threat QB and I believe it is rather difficult to diminish this fact. Wilson, I might add is doing a bang up job as well.
Last I checked you weren't a mod and as a poster I don't have to respond to you and only you in this thread (its Russ vs Kaep not Hawker84 vs Pillbusta) and I can post a video by my own choosing if I deem necessary and you don't have to respond to my posts nor read them if you don't like them. And after your outburst towards me asking me did I read your posts when I did not quote your post but rather stated my random thoughts and opinion, I am not sure whether I can respect your posts as you so eloquently told Marvin49.
Oh well, here is the link: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-iMLA1_q2xw. The play of reference is at 0:25. You may say this is weak, but there were 4 defenders involved and they got owned and it didn't look like Barry but Kaep found pay dirt. This is a regular occurance for him throughout his career. Calm down dude, I realize some on here might be purposefully trying to incite you or bait you, but that ain't my game. I simply say my piece and you say yours, then we can agree or disagree. The thread rolls on
