Originally posted by UKNiners:Respect your opinion and you make good points. However, why not get something now? I'm sure we could get good value. Lets say we can get a third that plays. Better that than potential on the bench. And again, makes up for drafting AJ and James. We are built to win now.
If our 1st and 2nd can't get on the field, what's a 3rd goin to do for us?
Alex is playing good enough to win and he's under contract for a couple more years, but Kaep is being groomed for the future. If we get rid of him, we have nothing behind Alex. You're right though. We are built to win now. Giving up a solid backup QB isn't smart. Losing Alex shouldn't cost us the season and a chance at the Superbowl.
We gave up a lot (essentially a late 1st) for Kaepernick and he's looked good when he's been called upon. There's no need to offload him after a one full season. He hasn't even had a chance to start.
