**Update*** 49ers sign Seneca Wallace

If Kaep was to go down, the back-up just needs to be able to not make any mistakes and occasionally move the ball into scoring position. All the reason why we upgraded our D and dropped Akers and picked up Dawson. The D and special teams will need to step up.

Lets just hope Kaep stays healthy. I think with our 3 headed monster of a running game....he should be upright most of the season.
Colt McCoy, you've officially been put on notice. Time to get your s**t together.
Bj was the second QB Jim drafted. I think he sticks. Wallace is a WCO vet that has the arm to get the ball to the playmakers. We have a stout OL, dominant run game and 4 targets with awesome catching radius: Boldin, VD, Vance and Baldwin? If he studies and picks up the offense he should be serviceable assuming he still has a few games under his hood
Last I checked he couldn't beat out Luke McCown.
I'm okay with this signing. IDK about you guys, but all I saw from Lockette was his special teams tackle.

Harbaugh is known for bringing in guys just to bring out the competitor in our players. For all we know, Harbaugh raved about Lockette, just so Jenkins would try harder...

I'd be okay with Kaep, Seneca, BJ. This makes it so we can do the option 100% of the time in practice. No sub offenses for Tozien or McCoy.
Tolzien and Mccoy are garbage...wallace isn't thst grest either but he's a serviceable back up

the way i see it, very few teams could continue a legitimate superbowl run if thier starter went down.
So at this point the team seems to be trying to find someone to fill in for a few games if Kap had a minor injury.
Quite frankly I like Seneca Wallace right now before even taking a snap with us more than I do Mccoy n Tolzien. I'd be content with him and Bj as backups, and hope to God Kaep never gets hurt no matter who the backups are
I am over it. Lockette is gone, too bad, but we need to move on. If Wallace can display some of that athleticism he showed when he was with the Seahawks five years ago, I am cool with it. But, some Saints fans have told me about his dismal performance in the preseason so far. 8 drop backs, 2 sacks, 1 INT amd 1 fumble. So, bottomline is which Wallace will we be getting ? Your guess is as good as mine. If the end result is Kap, Wallace and BJ, I would welcome the idea of having 3 dual threat QBs. My goal has always been to migrate all of our QBs to dual threat cos that to me is the future of this position.
Trust Jim Harbaugh and Trent.

I am not convinced just yet that it is the future of the position - however i will agree it sure is trending right now.

we will have to see what the longevity is of this trend and can players play this style at a high level for a long period of time.

although it seems like the NFL rules are making it more and more friendly to the style.

Well, I think as long as you don't run like a nutter like RG3, it should be fine. Look at Kap, just take the slide or run out of bounds, is no rocket science really.

The question is if you can have a QB that can do both, then why not ? To me, is all about squeezing that every last drop of potential and talent from your QB to help bolster and more importantly to diversify your offense. I can't see how this could be a negative.

definitely not a negative. i think we saw the future in the 80s with Cunningham, 90s with some guy named Young, then Vick took up another level. Just took another generation to refine.

i have been wondering for almost 20yrs why the NFL didnt run the option. (outside of a rare gadget play) but honestly i just dont think there were players with the skill set AND the rules protecting the QB.

This new style is clearly here now. just going to sit back and watch for the next couple years.

yep.
people are thinking about the wallace of 5 years ago. the wallace we got, now, is something different--and probably a lesser player.

of all the backups, i think bj has the best chance to stick after cuts. it's a toss up with the other three.
