Your right, the player has yet to show any true leadership.

Who cares if he organized a camp? A second string QB could have had the leadership to do this, that does not make him a good QB or an improved QB. He's also desperate to save face on his embarrassing career. I am rooting for him to do well but all of this excitement over Alex Smiths recently discovered scrotum is not only stupid because it means little on the field, but we've been fooled by this exact same rhetoric last year and we started out 0-5

The player is being a good team mate. The player is not in the long term future of the team. CK is who the fans should be focusing on, he is our future. Its good to see CK Skipping this rookie crap so he can start taking control of his team.
I join with all who hope that 10 years from now Colin Kaepernick will be sporting a Super Bowl ring or two as the 49er QB. However, there is a LOT of wishful thinking going on right now.

This year was acknowledged as being a down year for college QBs and CK was only the 6th best drafted this season. Looking at history, the odds of someone other than a #1 draft pick, or someone in the top 5 at his position, getting to the Super Bowl, or even the Pro Bowl are not very good.

In short, we can hope all we want, and hope springs eternal, but based on history, we should avoid disappointment but not setting our hopes too high. Let's see how long it actually takes him to get on the field before we get all over ourselves.

Cool. We still are exited to see him play. He has a wicked arm and is known for leadership. Being a fan is always about finding that next great QB. I'm not saying we have him in CK, but it is going to be fun watching him grow and play. This board will go nuts during pre season if Kaep shows some ability.

Names like Clayton and Sheets come to mind.

So do names like Vernon Davis, P.Willis, Crabtree, Gore, Iupati, and Soap, Franklin, Lee, and the other solid players we drafted.....

You and I go into this KNOWING that any little positive thing about Kap will make many here go through the roof with exaggerated talks of greatness. It's just gonna happen, and we all know why.

For the people like us, we will keep it real and let Kap earn his wings. I for one want nothing but positives of and for him, as I am sure you do as well. So let us not minimize or maximize unfairly. We just gotta sift through the BS knowing what is to come... what may come... and why it is there if it is.

"exaggerated talks of greatness."

thats what being a fan is about.

I hope he comes through very well and turns out to be a solid player. I live just north of where he grew up and now work with a guy lived just up the street from him and who followed him his entire HS career. There is a lot of positives coming around every day but there are also concerns about how well he will do against the overall speed of the pro game where he will not be able to get outside as easily nor will he have the strength to just pull away from tacklers as he did at Nevada.

Time will tell. I just hope he turns out much better than the average 2nd round picks in the NFL.

He has all the ingredients to be a great QB: he gets to sit and learn the offense, get brief action in situations that can utilize his athleticism, learn from an offensive minded coach, and benefit from a maturing offensive line and skill positions.

Except that Willis was the only one that really did anything in pre-season. The rest didn't establish themselves until well into the season, or seasons.

However fans will be FANatics, and that is OK. It is what makes NT interesting if nothing else.

Today is the final day of Camp Alex 2.0, and there is optimism that this will be the last time a player-organized workout will be necessary. There is little doubt the team's offense benefited greatly from these Alex Smith-led sessions, which were designed to get the players familiarized with the 49ers' new playbook. Kevin Jurovich estimates that if there are 100 different formations in the playbook, the skill-position players have already a pretty good understanding of 75 of them. These get-togethers have been invaluable. After all, when the official practices begin, the 49ers will not have much time to waste to get ready for the regular season.
These sessions couldn't hurt the team. But I think they are still behind the rest of the league.
They actually had the 49ers or alex smith at least mentioned on espn for once. (just stating he was being a leader and interviewed VD, someone probably already posted it but still cool to see. ) Go niners!

Maybe behind some teams, but definitely not behind the bills/broncos/ panthers.

That's really not saying much. Those teams are awful too.

same s**tty QB + new system + lockout = disaster.
I won't predict a record. I just want to see improvment as the weeks go on. I'm tired of this team repeatedly shooting themselves in foot with stupid penalties and turnovers! I'm also excited that we won't have a predictable or conservative offense.
