What is Kaeps worth....?

Come on guys. We watched Luck and Kaepernick head to head earlier this season in a Must Win Game for the 49ers and it was fairly obvious one Quarterback was significantly superior to the other in terms of pre snap reads, progression/poise in the pocket and even scrambling

Lol, week 3 was a "must win game"?
Hey, Luck has blown chunks on several occasions this year. So I wouldn't hold him up to be the posterboy of maturing qb's. He threw....7? ... picks in two playoff games? is that right? That's a lot of picks for two games.

I am not saying Kap is mr wonderful.


...just kidding....

We lost @ home. Fell 2 games behind the Seahawks and never recovered

You take the interceptions when guy rips a playoff defense apart for 443 yards

Luck is the total package. He has no holes in his game. No Quarterback has performed this well, this young since Peyton Manning. He has absolutely no one on his offense. 49ers have atleast 6 players on the offensive side that are better than any one Luck has. Imagine if he had half the talent Kaepernick does.....how much worse would the Colts have blown us out?

Luck: 8 forth quarter comebacks and 11 game-winning drives
Colin: 5 forth quarter comebacks and 6 game-winning drives (1 was a tie)

But sure Colin is more clutch. I have a hard time believing some of you are watching football games beyond our team.


If you're losing, every game provides another opportunity for another "game-winning" drive or "come-from-behind" victory etc.

Kap is now getting criticized for winning too much.
I voted 120+ . Because thats how much i would pay for another tittle. but that's just me... I don't sign the checks

By your elementary logic, Montana was a lousy Quarterback because he's know for making comebacks.

It ought to be fairly clear to anyone that a team with a strong win/loss record over the last few years does not offer the same opportunities for conebacks as a mid ranking team adjusting to a change in qb.

This is what Brian was saying, and to attempt to dismiss this as elementary logic is offensive and factually incorrect. The comment about Montana is just silly and leads me to believe you are just here to troll this thread.

I have given you a week's holiday from posting.
You banned him from posting for that?
No one loves Montana's comebacks more than I do, but I always wondered why the comeback against the Bengals in Super Bowl 23 was necessary.

The Niners shredded superior defenses in the divisional playoffs and in the NFC Championship Game.

That Bengal defense was in the bottom half of the league. But the Niners didn't bother to score a TD until the fourth quarter, when they had to because they fell behind.

And then, when they fell behind again, they went on the legendary 92-yard drive (which was really a 102-yard drive because of the Randy Cross penalty).

There was an element of procrastination in that game. It was as if they were the talented student who only studies when the test is likely to be hard.

It was like a foreshadowing of Eli Manning in 2007 and 2011.

Not that there's anything wrong with all of that. Not many players can start playing well after getting off to a mediocre start. Joe could. Eli can.

Luck carried Indy with a mediocre running game and very average (at best) receivers. He is clearly the more developed QB at this time.
One this is for sure. Luck's beard makes Kaep's actually look good. That Amish thing that Luck grows is hideous.
Remember when Andrew Luck threw 7 picks in 2 games, and needed a total collapse by the opposing team to get out of the first round?

You describe his receivers as "average", but how would you describe the defenses he faces?
How would you describe the defenses Kap faces in the NFC West?
Kap needs to improve on his Qb play. Great player can be clutch, but needs to improve on his progressions needs to go thru all the reads, climbing the pocket and looking down field, no clock issues. He's got some scary talent like steve young did, but just needs to make it all work together.
