I see. Gotcha.
I have confidence in the coaching staff finding another Colin Kaepernick or Alex Smith. Plus imagine the quality of draft picks we could receive in return for a trade.
Giving Kaepernick right now the keys to the franchise for the next 7+ years is premature.
Hate to break it to you, but someone has to drive. Id rather give the keys to Kap than some roll of the dice prospect. By the time a new player is ready to lead us to a title, many of our current stars will be in their twilight years.
Trying to draft a QB who will be BETTER than Kap is an enormous gamble. They dont grow on trees. You think if it were that easy, the Cowboys, Ravens, and Bears wouldve given their QB's mega deals?
There is SO much lingering bitterness by Niner fans who cant cope with having their heart broken any other way than directing all the blame to Kap.
Hes going to be just fine. He looked like garbage in SEA his first 2 tries, but he showed major improvements. There is still plenty of room for him to grow. Tossing him out before be reaches his full potential would be the biggest mistake in franchise history. Which is why it wont happen.
Find a Chargers fan and ask him "why didnt you keep Drew Brees?"
