sound mechanics. quick release and decision making. this is what Harbaugh wants.
At some point Kaep will be better than Tolzien and be a starter on this team. But right now I would take Tolzien as a backup to Smith.
He looked alright. Arm looks a little weak. He is cool as a third stringer. He can function in an offense for a game or two. He is getting hyped up in this thread.

I know it's only preseason, but that means nothing when it comes to timing, ball placement and reading a defense. Tolzien was by far the most impressive QB tonight. He should be ahead of CK.

Well, my arm chair coaching opinion is that he got sloppy in the red zone, had nice touch on his throws but didn't prove anything to me. Still the more weeks to see.

lol @ sloppy

Well, he let that wide open tightend run to the endzone without a ball and then threw a pick the next play if I remember correctly.
Would like to see tolzien play with the starters against a starting defense. He wasn't the sh!t but he was solid, passes looked good & kept the chains movin.

If Scott can repeat in the first qtr what he did against the 3rd stringers I will agree. But he sure looked sharp.

Screen call.... He was not even looking for it.

This! It was interesting hearing the commentators talking about how pissed Baalke was that Tolzien went to San Diego (b/c he really wanted him as an UDFA) and consequently, watched him tear us up in pre season. But yeah, he, to me, and I felt this all along, is a QB whereas Kaep is a great athlete. So if Alex goes down, no doubt I want the better QB in there and that would be Tolzien. His decision making has always been very quick; great command of the offense and really good ball placement where the WR can run with it.

2. he didn't "throw" a pick

Yeah, still very early. Kaep can still come back and show more. But just going off of this game, Tolzien look better drop back, in the pocket.

agree that Tolzien looks like a real QB. He's not overly mobile nor does he have a great arm. He definitely has great instincts though and is VERY accurate. Just look at the plays that were called for him, they were drop back passes. I think he's a rich man's Shawn Hill and I see him ending up the #2.
If you're wondering how he was spotted both playing at Candlestick and cruising around McCovey Cove at the same time, the answer is quite obvious.....

I was watching on my laptop with no sound and the replay they showed had a wide open tightend not getting throw to, screen or not.. I'm just stating the truth. As for the INT, I was only half paying attention but I know we didn't score and the Vikings got the ball. I'm not saying he sucks, he looks like he has potential, I just don't see Drew Brees or Don Johnson.
