There is a lot of talent on the roster at the QB position beyond the starting slot...whereoughs, Kaep is very atheletic, and Johnson has a few more snaps, my personal fave for b-up is Tolzien hands down. I really like his comfort level in the pocket and his ability to make the right decision(s) fast!!!
He has a well rounded atheletic ability,a good arm with a tight spiral...
Tolzien won't make the roster now that JJ is in the picture. You're judging him based on preseason games from a year ago. Likely in the game against us where he faced very little pressure against 3rd/4th stringers. He could conceivably beat JJ with a great preseason but only if JJ also just completely sucks which I doubt.
Josh Johnson has to prove he can be on the roster just like Tolzien does. People counting Tolzien out simply because JJ got signed is rediculous. He was brought in to compete with and push the rookies. JJ may be the only one out of the three with a body of work to look at, but lets not forget, calling that body of work mediocre would be a stretch.
You cant condemn people for judging Tolzien on preseason, while at the same time largely basing JJ's skills on his body of work in college. Lets all be honest here, he was not great for TB.
Oh and by the way, Tolzien was pressured alot in that Game, and it wasnt all third and fourth stringers. Aldon had 2 1/2 sacks and 4 qb preasures as well as 7 tackles. He and Dobbs were pretty dominate that game.
And that article is rediculous. he didnt come to the niners for a demotion your right, he came because it was the only place he had a possibility to stick, simply because his history with Harbaugh. Its not like people were kicking his door down trying to sign him. May the best men get the spots. I personally hope the two young guys make it, but if JJ beats one out so be it. But Tolzien will be snatched if we try to PS him.
