Round 2, #36, the San Francisco 49ers selects Colin Kaepernick (QB) Nevada

Preface - I really admire Smiths courage, heart, determination, great attitude, class, and his talent to some extent as well.

But watching tonights Saints - Giants game the speed that Drew Brees plays at in every way - mental, physical, footwork, release, progression, shuffle, step up, fake etc etc etc is so much faster than any QB we've had on the roster in so long it makes me sick. This is supposed to be the 49ers. Harbaugh couldn't get EVERYTHING done this first abbreviated year, but I have a feeling this is going to be addressed next year.

I'm sure Kap is a great kid but I'm not seeing it there either, sorry.

Jesus someone please stop the torture


Have you thought about the fact that it will be Kaps turn, FACT! We just can't wait for that day to come. Because we know Alex will not be winning us any Super Bowls

Yeah but how many of those Wide Receivers have passsed for 10,000 yards and rushed for 3,000 in college? Um let me just answer that for you. answer:1 and that's Kaepernick!

And not a lot of QBs are as good as Drew Brees, that is obvious

Umm...Ok!
Well, hopefully I'm wrong and you all are right that Kap is going to be a repeat pro bowler. Because that is what we need. Nothing short of it.

Hopefully Alex stays healthy because even though Harbaugh says he has confidence in him I sure as hell dont

lol that means so much.
i'm excited to see kaep play whenever he has the opportunity, either late in the season or next preseason. in 2-3 years, he could end up being something special

Aikman, Cunningham, Brady, and even Montana played with a more cerebral, fluid motion in the pocket.

Brees is like a Jitterbug that bounces around in the pocket. He does it very effectively, but you can be a great quarterback without that style of play.
I wonder if we clinch this week, and win 2 or 3 more...if they will let him start the last game of the season? That would be cool to see.

We are still trying to get that 2 seed, no way he starts unless Alex gets hurt

Isn't Brees like 6'0"? I think that's why he appears to look like a jitterbug and IS able to move like one. Kaep is much taller which makes his movements appear different but they are nearly just as quick/fast.

Maybe if Alex can get us another blowout, then Kaep can get some live action.

RAMS WEEK!

Colon kaepertick
Kappy will only see significant playing time under 2 circumstances.

1) Alex gets hurt
2) We clinch a first round bye before week 17.

/end Kaepernick discussion until one of those two things happens because you can't judge a rookie who doesn't see the field
