I too voted for Kaep. But I find the vitriole in here hilarious. You clearly have an agenda if you think the difference in the two right now is that glaring in terms of on field production. Kaep will be a way better QB in time, but right now I have them pretty even, wildly different in their approach, skill set, and attitude...but pretty even.
Hell If we had a weaker D, I might go with Alex because he is the safer play. Kaep is far more dynamic and with that style comes some risk. I have faith that our Defense can make up for the occasional misstep..so I am comfortable taking the guy who is capable of saving a game we wouldnt win with Smith because our D can step in and take over a game where Kaep takes a risk to many, or shows his youth with a bad decision.
Kaep had one INT off of a horrible snap... why does everyone keep saying that kaep makes bad decisions? he finds the open man and drives the ball in their chest.. goes through his progressions and finds the open man.. These aren't risks.. If you consider it to be risky to throw the ball over 10 yards then you have been watching Smith for way too long. Kaep has great vision and i love his play style.. He doesnt give up and check down
