I still think that Harbaugh is keeping Colin from running because the backup QB's suck. Last year he had Alex, this year he has McCoy.
What we're seeing is a QB who has just started his 13th game and is essentially having to learn to play the QB position properly (something he didn't do in college).
Colin isn't anywhere close to being ready to run this offense at the level that Alex was and if they don't simplify it ASAP, it's going to be a long season. However, I have no faith in Roman being able to do that since he's a moron.
Ya I think we need to draft a QB in the 2nd or 3rd round next year. Security to be less nervous about exposing Kap to hits, plus if Harbaugh is again spot on with his QB evaluation that he'd hand-pick (and why wouldn't we think he'd be) and spent some time developing that QB with his secret QB coaching sauce that have always been huge for his QBs, then do we really pay Kap nine figures with like $60M guaranteed (probably around what he'd be projected to earn in the 2014 market) and have that more than likely cost us AT LEAST 2 of Brown, Crabtree, Iupati, Aldon (
), or would we roll with potential hotshot new guy under cheap contract with the flexibility to be able to re-sign those 4 guys (and also a little further down the road Willis is gonna get another big contract from us, Boone and Ray McDonald are gonna need paydays, especially considering how underpaid they currently are, and Reid looks like a long-term keeper). I do worry about the effect that Kap's inevitable monster extension will have on the rest of the roster. He can't have back to back weeks like the last 2 weeks in the future if the rest of the roster takes a blow. He's gotta consistently play like a league MVP.
