LOL.

So being 6'4", a great leader, a hard worker, running a 4.5, having a laser for a right arm and a good brain is nothing to inspire hope?

His cool attitude outshines all of that?

Davis had a low IQ, wasn't as athletic, and a bad work ethic. Basically all he had going for him was a cannon of an arm.

So if you call Kaep a smart/hard working/more athletic davis, then that's actually a guy with a chance to be a good quarterback. People are just really quick to judge, saw him struggle in one preseason, and now he's a bust all of a sudden. I'll still give him at least one more preseason before I call him a career backup.

How many WRs have big time arms.

wow...lol....

again from the previous page.

seems like he is almost everything they are looking for in a franchise QB.

Actually Nate Davis probably has better touch on his passes than Alex or Colin......just seems like a natural passer. Knew when to gun it and when to loft it in there.

too bad he had other issues.

Needed that... LOL.... and really.. really says it all bout you, my friend. .. Have fun with that. It is your blessed opinion, and this is the place for them... but wow...
Funny...I always thought Nate had an arm....but no idea of when and how to use it. Kinda the opposite of what you just said.

well although this was from Preseason this little back to back segment did impress me at the time....I wasn't used to seeing a 9er QB do that.

first pass was nice touch and was easy for Walker to pull in for the TD, seeing that he was wide open....next one, right back to Walker for a 2pt conversion... and gunned it accurately.

starts at 1:06 of the clip.

If only preseason a quarterback make. David carr would be tom brady, davis would be peyton(and if they kept him he might actually be starting). Kaep would already be a bust(i guess he is). Thank god for preseason, gives us all highlights to ponder of guys like davis beating 3rd and 4th stringers.

I never understood why some think just because you are playing against 3rd stringers or what ever...that it would take away from a nice touch pass. You are seeing what is in front of you and adjusting the throw....that is the play that was available at the time.

what does playing against 3rd stringers have to do with taking credit away from a QB making a nice touch pass? Isn't that just natural ability in ball placement?
I'm in the kaepernick cab of awesomeness fo sho!!!
His delivery is funky, but that doesn't mean he has no future as our starting QB. It is possible to clean up a QB's delivery to a certain extent. Watching him play I honestly don't think it is that big a deal. I still think he is our future starter. Like Afrikan said, his touch and ball placement is very good. Kaep has all the smarts, physical attributes, and leadership skills. The dude is a gamer. Harbaugh will clean up his mechanics in no time.

I'll bet you twenty bucks he's not.

main reason for me not liking kaep: mechanics and that long ass awkward wind up. takes too long on the release, not compact and fast enough. can't really fix that.

Does it really take too long? Harbaugh has said it's fine because of how the ball shoots out of there. I trust his assessment on that. Not like we've seen much of him to really know for sure, his only reg season action came against the bucs.
So Nate got signed... dumped... signed.... dumped... put on weight, and was told to me by the very treatment physician ... had a strong taste of the ganja.. couldn't focus without it...


Hmmm.. a real mystery, what happened to super-Nate.................. (true story... zero BS)
