I honestly don't know what to think, both QBs we played today looked like crap. Smith is inconsistent; sometimes he plays great and sometimes he plays like garbage. Not sure how much of him looking great has to do with play design and how much is attributed to him. Kaepernick hasn't had many snaps, but i really am not a fan of the read option offense that Coach forces him to run when he's in the game. Can he play the pro-style offense? This remains to be seen since the coaches haven't let him try. I really think we need a consistent pro style QB, and am not sure if we can fix Smith's problems with inconsistency or mold Kaepernick into pro-style QB. So what do we do for the future?
Pro-style vs. Read option.
What kind of QB do we want?
Do we ride out Smith? Athletic but is not the best when it comes to standing tall in the pocket. We know what he is capable of and incapable of, we just don't know which Smith we will be getting come game time.
Do we put in Kaepernick and run the read option? Do we put him in and try to turn him into the pro style QB? Kaep is more athletic than Smith and can make some deep throws, but will he make the right decisions?
Tolzien is on the roster, but obviously there is a problem with him because we don't ever give him a shot. Should we give him a shot? He ran the pro style offense at Wisconsin, and can stay in the pocket and make passes.
I highly doubt we look to the draft for another QB, so I am pretty sure that is out of the question.
Which direction is Harbaugh headed with our beloved 49ers offense and QB?
