Yes. He's played excellent football for quite some time now, including not just some epic comebacks and exciting victories, but some virtually flawless performances as well. This team looks like they're in great position to win a SB no matter who would happen to start right now. Alex knows he's a terrific QB, and shouldn't be content to back-up a guy who will prevent him from ever seeing the field, barring injury. At this point, I don't even think Manning would unseat Kaepernick.
Alex should go to Arizona or Minnesota. Probably Minny, since Arizona lets their QB get sacked more than anyone in the league (although.. we are 7th worst in this area, so maybe it wouldn't be that bad).
Well said. He IS a terrific QB and would be awesome in Minne with AP running the ball.
We have all been through all the history stuff; how he was drafted by a team more devoid of talent than the expansion year Texans, bad coaches and all, and finally get a chance to play with some talent and a good coaching staff. However, a point that I believe is somewhat overlooked is, we will never know for sure where this team would be right now if it had not been for Camp Alex last year. His loyalty combined with his intelligence gave the offense a running start on a year with a completely new system and staff. He then hit the ground running and ran the offense well enough to win 13 games and put the 49ers on the map. In the process, he opened a lot of eyes to his own talents, which had been buried behind all the crap for years.
He will go somewhere next year where he will be appreciated, and he will get paid, and he will win. He deserves that. I just hope the 49ers are not a team he beats, although that would be a precious irony.
