Exactly. That is what I am saying.

I said that Kap should get paid whatever Luck gets paid on his new deal. He said because Luck was the first overall pick, Kap will likely be below him. That makes no sense. In fact, that is MORE reason for Kap to be greedy because he has been under paid as compared to Luck and Newton.

If I was the 49ers, I would wait to see what Luck gets, and then give Kap about the same (obviously a SB win by either would change this).

But if I was Kap/his agent (or Wilson), I would actually try to get more than Luck/Newton given he was underpaid (of course, as you indicate, this may not work as the 49ers may not care).


Draft position should have no influence in negotiations. Not everyone can be number 1 overall. If he or anyone else feels they've been underpaid they need to look at their college careers and/or genetics. I'm sure anyone in the NFL is happy to be in the NFL.

Kaeps contract negotiations should already be in progress. Luck has to wait another year. I think Newton will be the first to get a deal from this class.
Thats are ! QB ! HELLO ! Faith !

This next Sunday will determine a lot about both their salaries.

Wait. How does Manning have weapons like Damaryius Thomas, Wes Welker, Eric Decker, Julius Thomas ?

They don't have the payroll on defense like we do. Imagine our D without Bowman this year if we couldn't afford him.

Exactly my point. There are still ways to provide weapons to a highly paid QB. Manning isn't the only one. The money we need will have to come from the D. That means letting go of our older defenders. After this post season is complete and hopefully with our 6th superbowl championship, I think Baalke will rebuild the D with cheaper younger talent while keeping core young defenders (Willis, Bowman, Aldon, Brock, Reid) .

I have a feeling Justin Smith will retire if we get the ring. His retirement should save us some space. I would love to cut Carlos Rogers and let Whitner walk. That'll save some space as well. We will have 6 picks in the first 3 rounds of the draft. If Baalke can hit a homerun with this draft and this year's draftee's (Carradine, Dial, Lattimore) become ready, we should have plenty of ammo to replace some guys and still maintaining a very good team.

We might take a step back next year, but our future will be setup for the next decade imo.

Let me start by saying this isn't a Kap "hater" response, but a reality check.

He is not good enough to win on his own. Guys like Brady and Manning have done that for years. Kap has had an all world D at his disposal since the beginning. The D has kept almost every game within an easy reach for most of the season. The last time I looked we had an average score of 13 and change scored on us. Kap is not at the point where we can give up 28 a week and still win. Without the D, loads of field goals, and key turnovers and ST play...we aren't in the playoffs. He just isn't good enough to dismantle the D and give him the remaining cash. And if we need the cash after a monster deal, would he take a cut like Alex? Look at it like this, why was Boldin let go? They couldn't afford him after the Flacco deal, do we want that?

and regarding Trent...

He has one one stellar draft, one s**t draft, and one unknown draft. I'm not willing to bet the farm on that body of work.

O'rly?

In his year and a half as a starter, Kap has beaten three teams that have scored at least 28 on our defense. He out dueled Brady in December in Foxboro. He threw for 400 yards and 4TDs in GB week one this year. And finally, he set the all-time QB rushing record against GB in the divisional round of the playoffs last year.

This is not too mention a Superbowl comeback that had been officiated correctly would have likely been the largest Superbowl comeback in NFL's history. Also two weeks prior, coming back in Atlanta to beat Atlanta on the shoulders of our QB.

It's incredibly false to claim we don't have a QB that can win games for us. In a year and a half, he's done so on numerous occasions. Also, the notion he had a bad season is silly. I'd say the lofty expectations were not met, but all things considered, he played a huge, if not the biggest, role in getting us to a 12-4 record.

Do we have this record without the best D in the NFL? I don't care about last year, I really don't. The point that some of you are way to sensitive on is the fact that he can't do this alone. Manning throws a million TD's a season, that equates to points he's responsible for. He can have a s**t D because he can always come back and out duel 90% of other QB's. Kap is not that player right now, probably won't be next year either. And I'm fine with that, he's a different kind of player. But that means he will need help on both sides of the ball. We can't dismantle the D and give him nobodies at WR to play with...we can't win like that. Do you remember Kap without Crabs...imagine Kap with no Crabs and no Boldin. That's a very real possibility next year and it scares the s**t out of me. If we just throw 20+ mill at him you can kiss his favorite WR's good bye. How well do you think he performs with no help at the position, you think we fight for another Super bowl again? And while we deal with that on O, we also risk cap casualties on D? Imagine this year without Bowman or Aldon. We could seriously run into the losing Iupati, Boldin, Crabtree and maybe Aldon scenario if we just give him the world. You think we are a better team under those circumstances? I sure as hell don't and will be honest about it. You give him his worth to this organization but you also take his style and needs into consideration. If he needs a top level D and great talent at skill positions to win, you take those financial costs into consideration when his contract comes into play. Superbowl win or not his value to me doesn't change. Peg him around 15-17 mill per and explain winning is better then having another 4 mill a year and losing. If he becomes the "I must be the highest paid player in the NFL" guy...we move to option B. I like the kid but this is the San Francisco 49ers, not the San Francisco Kaps.

First off, hit "enter" every few sentences.

Second, do you have any grasp of our cap situation? You talk like you know exactly what we can and cant afford down the road. AB seems to think we can structure deals and have enough to retain most of our star players, even with a big Kap contract.

Third, in the NFL, if you dont have a quality QB, you dont have any Super Bowl hopes. Its why the Ravens, Bears, and Cowboys gave non-top 10 QB's mega deals. You slip back into mediocrity without a good QB.

Kap will get what a young, playoff proven, franchise QB is owed. It wont be cheap, but its a necessary investment if you want to win.
Kaep averaged only 200 yards per game in passing... ranking 32nd in the league. How will that factor into negotiations, if at all?

He is top ten in yards-per-attempt.

Cumulative totals are meaningless stats.

Wilson and Kap (and Dalton) are going to go for broke on their second contracts because they were "raped" on their rookie deals, and need to make up on lost income.
Wilson is getting paid something like $500,000 this season. Kap not that much more.

Yeah, Kap actually should demand MORE than Luck or Newton or RGIII because of this.

I don't think that's how it works. The CBA is what it is. They agreed with the owners to lower rookie salaries. No team is going to care about Kap, or any player's, lost income. Kap is going to get paid fair market value regardless.

In reality the team will begin looking at the players last contract and then compare QBs around the league. Kaepernick's agent will go the QBR root and quote Jim Harbaugh. With the teams run first mentality the QB position is not going to gain as many yards passing so CK will have to use his running and passing, and games won. Then the team will look back and say..."Gee, our last QB won more games in the last two years and he's not making anywhere what your asking!"

They will go back and forth, including Baalke saying something like..."Would you like to let the OLine go and we can hire some scrubs to protect you?"

On and on...and at some point Kaepernick will decide whether his future looks better with this incredibly talented team or another team. Who knows how it will go, but I do believe he will be a wealthy young man no matter.

Sounds about right to me. Kaep, like most of our guys will want to get paid, but I don't expect Kaep (or most of our guys for that matter) to take the Dashon Goldson route (bolting for whoever the highest bidder is). It all started with Frank Gore. He didn't go for some kind of max deal after that 1,695 yard season. Our top tier guys traditionally followed suit. I believe that tradition will continue.
Bump....3 4th quarter turnovers

Devastated.
this is tricky. lucky im not paraag or baalke.

TBH I think we're at boom or bust now. I give him 3yrs 40m or let him play out next year.
