Are we watching the same vid? He looked very solid. That pass he made at 2:43 was money. I could see him hitting Moss or Davis with those all day.

3 INT's and a fumble, stares down guys, and has happy feet = very solid?

Alex should be considered All World then

They talk crap about Alex and his high throws and thats all I saw from JJ in the clip

I for one am not excited about JJ signing with us. I also wouldn't be shocked if he got cut in training camp, the financial commitment they made to him is not significant.

and this was going to be plan B if Alex left.....lol

Jim is a great coach but tihs thought that he can take anybody and make them effective is retarded. If that was the case we wouldnt of signed JJ, Jim's super hero QB powers would make Kap and Tolz magical.
I think JJ will end up the #2 QB. He has experience over CK and is already familiar with Harbaugh's offense. But, we'll see...nice problem for Harbaugh to have, eh.

i'm excited because of his familiarity with Harbaugh and the fact that his presence could push everyone at the position. he might not be very good at the NFL level, but he is legitimate competition for Kaep and Tolzien, and if they elevate their play to beat out JJ, then they will become better competition for Smith, who must elevate his play, etc. and, who knows, JJ might surprise people and push Smith too.

But yeah, I don't think he's anything more than competition, backup material, and I agree that I won't be surprised if he fails to make the final roster.

I saw a very athletic QB that doesn't read the defense very well or go through progressions.

Right. A young, athletic QB learning to play the position.

I think there are alot of people who don't undertstand how Harbaughs offense makes it EASIER to play the position. It's "QB friendly". When Josh moves from that into something else...he struggled.

I happen to think that the same thing is going to happen to Luck.

I refuse to talk about Alex in this thread.......


Anyway, can a QB guru help me out with this; when I was watch the TD pass to the endzone about 20 yards out (2:35-2:50) it looks like he's standing in a non-throwing position, but still managed to zipp it in with very little body moment. Am I looking at that right? It seemed pretty impressive to me.

But he's already done it with this guy at the college level..... The kid shattered records at SD state, didn't he?

I dont know why but this part made me laugh. I usually agree with you though, so...




















THIS
I never heard of him before other than the fact that he was once coached by Harbaugh. My only theory is that he is there to help Kaepernick compete. I don't know but this front office is so active I think they got a lot of big surprises and I am excited for this next season more than I have ever been. I really believe they have a very good big picture type thing going on here.

If he thought he could make anybody effective than he wouldn't have bothered going after Manning.

All he sees in Josh is a kid with tools who has a chance. He has ALOT of work to do, but he has a chance. He also know the kid because he coached him with great success.

You will pardon me if I trust Harbaugh a bit more than I trust you.

We still pretend Alex is suddenly good, did we foreget about his first years?

Nope but your hatred doesnt allow you to see the progress he has made over the last year and a half

College level....not NFL. And getting coached up to play the position better....really? What the hell did Jim do with him in college...tutor him in math? The kid has had Jim for multiple years in college and has had professional QB coaches for quite some time. Not every kid that study's under a specific coach will be good. A lot of people expect way too much from Jim and its going to disappoint people when reality hits, he is a great coach not a miracle worker. The position is not plug and play because Jim has a "QB friendly system", The QB himself has to have some form of talent to be effective, these guys at this point aren't little balls of clay waiting to be molded. Do I trust Jim in the QB department yes I do, do I expect him to make every guy good no way in hell.

Yah good luck to JJ he seems like a nice kid and he's a bay area guy. I wish him success but I never did understand the hype regarding him.
