Absolutely. If you are good you are good. When you cross check his performance in that game with his college highlights, you know this kid has talent and a tonne of it. What that little flash of brilliance in the Chiefs game tells us is he is able to transfer his skills from the college game to pro football whereby the NFL stage is not too big for him. What BJ needs is more snaps and get some consistency going. I have always liked him from the word go, but was discouraged when Harbaugh didn't seem to take him seriously at first when he was being tried out at WR, KR and what not. Is time to rethink .
It is time for who to rethink what? Are you saying that Harbaugh has to rethink his vision of BJ Daniels and where he should play?
If that is what you are saying, I would remind you that:
1. BJ Daniels has been listed on the 49 website as a quarterback ever since he was drafted.
2. Every time the team has planned to switch a player from the position he played in college to another position on the team, the team has listed the player at the position they saw that player playing on the 49ers (Miller at fullback, Culliver at cornerback, and Marquise Gray at tight end.
3. Harbaugh, in my recollection, has always said Daniels was a quarterback. This recollection has been confirmed by Barrows. Barrows wrote that Harbaugh said "Daniels is – and has been – in the competition with Colt McCoy and Scott Tolzien to be Kaepernick's primary backup.*:
edit: 4. BJ Daniels has been getting reps at QB in practice.
If I misread what you meant by highlighted statement, please clear it up for me.
