Lets be honest, I am a huge Kaepernick fan but he is not ready to start in the NFL.. If you have a team not headed for the play offs, then you can have the luxury of have him getting game time reps. In the mean time let him sit, learn the offense and more importantly how to read defenses. Rodgers sat for 3season behind brett favre, let Kaepernick sit and leanr.
You could be right, and I agree for the most part. However; after a full off-season and OTA's etc, he could be ready sooner than we think.

Rather have this guy sit again. Follow the Aaron Rogers route. We just gotta find a HOF QB for him to learn from lol...

Peyton!!!!!

I completely agree with allowing Kaepernick time to grow. With that said, out continuity on offense will only help Alex over the next year. There will be growth and development with offensive chemistry the more Alex throws passes to Williams, Crabs, etc in this scheme. No, that won't fix some of his terrible passes, but it will give us a better competitive advantage.

Also, I believe something happens to a team, especially the quarterback of a team, when they reach the playoffs. We are growing into a team that will start to EXPECT winning and the playoffs will no longer be an unachievable feat. That adds to a teams confidence and psyche, especially when playing from behind. This, too, is a huge confidence builder for Alex.

Alex will be the QB but I really think Kaep could be our QB of the future. I'm excited

I don't see the accuracy with Kaep. Not sure he is the future.

but you see the accuracy with Smith?

Definitely more accurate than Kaep at this time.

Funny how people can say he is not accurate when they have seen him throw less then 50 passes in the NFL while learning a completely new style of play coming from the college game. Yet Boy Wonder has been missing WRs for 7 years and still gets a pass.

I swear some people have an emotional attachment to some players. Makes you wonder if they are fans of the team or just fans of certain players.
I hope Kaep doesnt have 2 endure what Rodgers had to go through when sitting behind Favre all does years..........Smith is no Favre n i hope the niners make him take a back seat sooner then later so we can see what Kaep is all about.........hope the very best for Colin

GO NINERS!!!

maybe so.....but for the first time ever, I think the NFL should make an exception and have Dalton and AJ Green as Rookie(s) of the Year,

I mean they did it that one year for Steve McNair and Payton Manning (was it?) who shared the MVP.
I wonder if CK knows how many people are pulling for him to take over at QB next year?

The same people who are cursing themselves over the fact that Alex Smith has done everything opposite of they had wished for this season.

Kap can sit for another year. There is no way Alex isn't back in 2012. We would not be here if it wasn't for Alex this season. Give him a full off season and kap another year on the bench and I think we have a good problem.

Yup. Probably for the rest of his contract. If he makes it that far. We will bring in competition for him to beat.
I'd like him to sit until harbaugh thinks he's ready
