i dont know why so many ppl count Kap out of the race for our QB. yea he threw alot of interceptions in the preseason but most rookies would given the short offseason. Dalton looked down right awful in preseason and he made me eat a whole lot of crow this season.
I like alex but i dont really expect him to be an elite QB. he goes into conservative mode too much.
Kap has good accuracy, a rocket arm, and incredible mobility
Have a little more faith in Harbaughs decision to trade up for him in the 2nd.
If the NFL had two quarterbacks on the field, everybody would be excited about Kaepernick. But because there is only one QB on the field at a time, it means Kaepernick's success = Smith's failure; and now since Smith walks on water after his one playoff game, that leaves Kaepernick as a threat, an intruder, an assassin out to get Alex Smith.
The reality is, if Alex Smith disappeared from history right now, EVERYBODY on the WZ would be jumping for joy in anticipation of Colin Kaepernick.
May the best quarterback win the job, whether it's the messiah or the assassin.
