This is reasonable. Whether someone calls CK the greatest QB of all time, or a guy with holes in his game that experience will take care of, it seems to me that most posters are agreeing that Kaepernick is among the top three or four young QBs in the league--which is extreme praise given the likes of RGIII, Wilson, Luck and Newton.
I think it comes down to durability, and assume that consistency will be there. CK's game is just too strong, and he is too well coached, to become really inconsistent. His upbringing seems to have made him focused and mature, he's bright...the only thing I worry about are injuries and he seems pretty able to dodge bullets, unlike RGIII. As a matter of fact, his build and playing style seem to make him less injury prone than any of the young guys...much more nimble than Newton or Luck, and less likely to run into defenders than RGIII. Faster and better field vision than all.
This is an exciting time to be a niner fan, and as much as I liked the team last year it seems Baalke/Harbaugh just keep adding coal to the fire.
