Hey, for us, it would be good to keep Alex around as QB insurance. Let's face it... Colin is gonna be running around and taking hits frequently. So for this kind of QB... and for this kind of SB contending team.. it would be wise to make sure a QB injury doesn't leave your season in ruins. That alone would be worth the money to keep him around. Now, is Alex okay with being a backup while making damn good money? That, I really can't say. I doubt his hunger to start has diminished... and I really doubt he wants to be around Harbaugh at this point.
Hey oldman what do you think about our coach now ?
I sense the trap.. but the question is.. fair. To be honest, I'm rather conflicted right now about him. Kaepernick truly is much better than I thought he would be at this point. There was no reason for me to know that as well as the coaches do... they get to see it all behind the scenes. So the point that Kaepernick brings a more dynamic element is legit.
I, however, still feel that we could have gotten this far... and win it all with either QB. So that is the part where I feel conflicted on his decision. Still feels wrong... Coach knowing how much this meant to Alex.. all the betrayal he's endured here.. and yet still opting to go with the more dynamic QB. I get it... I really do.. but I guess I still harbor some ill will towards the decision made. At the end of the day and as a fan? I really do just want the SB victories... that comes first.. and I can not feel too badly about a 27-28 year old man I never met that has made roughly 50 million dollars in his seemingly perfect life already.
( no following cheap shots, please... I answered your question the best I could.. despite seeing the potential for more WZ fireworks )
