A 2nd rounder?
Why on earth would they trade Kaep? Because they have Smith? Kaep is:
a) this year has proven and the years before, you can never have enough good players you are just one hit away. Tolzein-unproven, I like the kid but pre games against 3-4 stringers is hardly a clue to his talent. If he was so good and better, then he would have been in the game instead of Kaep.
b) younger, Alex has seven years working on eight
c) although he is younger, he is only on the second floor of his ceiling, look at how much he has shown despite coming from a non traditional offense. You got coaches and ex coaches raving about him now.
d) though not as experienced as AS, by his forth year he will at the very least be on AS (exp. wise) level if not surpased it. Where as AS is a good decent QB, but has reached his ceiling, if he has not, we are talking inches to a foot at the most, not yards. AS cannot equal Kaep's legs or canon of an arm. In fact it is only going to go down as he ages.
e) Alex can move the team when he needs to, but Kaep could move the team down the field faster than Alex, when he needs to, he can lead long time consuming drives like in the saints game.
