Only one of the QB's has a windup issue, butbothwere running vanilla offenses. Of the two, Smith got the ball out on time and fairly accurate. Some people chastised him for not throwing TD's, but those armchair QB's failed to realize that throwing for a TD did not seem to be the focus of Harbaugh's offense. Moving the damn ball is what it was all about, or are any of your forgetting what happened last year? Harbaugh has made it perfectly clear that he was not about to give away anything to anybody during the preseason. Same with his assistants.
Tolzien is easily the better second string QB because he was schooled in a WCO style offense; Kaepernick was not. Kaepernick's learning curve is going be considerable steeper than Tolzien's. Sure, he would be the one with windup issues, but go figure with him being tall and having long arms. That's just what he and the Niners have to deal with.
I read the part about Marino getting the ball out fast, even though he was not the most mobile of QB's. Quite true, but the Niners made him look quite ordinary on a couple of occassions and none more impressive than what they did to him during the Super Bowl. It still comes down to one basic issue, protection. Fast or slow, if you give the QB time to get the ball out, good things happen.
Now! Bring on the Seachickens!
