No kidding, and not to mention, if you actually look at preseason production, he has produced the least. He's the lowest rated QB out of the 4 QBs on the roster and has accounted for a total of ZERO points, and that is going against 3rd and 4th stringers. On the other hand, Kaep has led 3 scoring drives. And while I agree that several of his throws have been late, he hasn't been innacurate, in fact I would argue he's had the most impressive throw in both preseason games so far (sideline pass to AJ on the run vs. Minn, and the perfect back shoulder throw to Moss 25 yds down the field against Hou).
And please don't take this as I'm anti Tolzien, I like what I see and would rather keep him than Johnson at this point, but the love for him and abundant dissapointment towards Kaep seems completely unjustified at this point.
