. . . or not.
JJ's story reminds me a bit of the Nate Davis kid the Niners had on their roster. Nate was better in college too, because he produced in the top division, not some pee-wee league.
Josh Freeman really isn't that good and when given an opportunity, the JJ package didn't come close to challenging him. IMO, even with poor coaching players still show flashes of what they've got and that defines them and their potential. I really doubt that JJ will suddenly show up. We'll see.
The Niner's best shot for moving the team to the next level will be CK. Only because he's an unknown. Maybe he doesn't have it either.
