Agreed. CK possesses the superior essentials: Athleticism and intangibles. But he could still be a bust because the essential have to convert to productivity; he hasn't demonstrated that consitently yet.
I'll say this: If CK hasn't demonstrated CLEARLY that he is the starter (no later than 2013) by this season's end, the Niners better be scouting for our next QB pick in round 1 next year. Because the others on the roster are not the final solution.
JJ has proven that he's not the answer: 3 years at TB where the position was basically handed to him and he couldn't hold it. ST has the right mentality but lacks the superior athleticism. And AS? . . . well, if after 7 years, it isn't obvious that he is, at best, a stop-gap, then people are in serious denial.
