Which Legendary Niner QB Should Kaepernick Take Advice From?

Which Legendary Niner QB Should Kaepernick Take Advice From?

Throughout the run of Colin starting, you heard comments and opinions from Joe Montana and Steve Young of the development of the young QB. They both see potential but sense improvement. They present two different aspects to the table but two things they share: the WCO and the rings.

Its obvious the Colin needs to improve in a number of areas like decision-making and poise. Who do you think should Colin take advice from?

The way I look at it, a combination of both due to Joe's mastery and Steve's physical stature.
Nothing against Joe, but I would prefer to have Colin take advice from Young and Garcia. Young made the transition from a running QB to a pocket passer with a 70% completion rate . That is what we need Colin to transition to. If Colin's completion rate can get to 60% consistently I would be happy, Garcia can also help in the transition as well since he was a mobile QB but could still make plays from the pocket.

If anyone, Jeff Garcia. I mean, he really got a gorgeous wife, especially for being a weird looking dude. Whatever Skills he's got, he needs to share so kap can get some higher quality b***hes.

Couldn't hurt to get tips from two HOF QBs, any edge he can get would be beneficial.

Cody Pickett. Actually I think he's doing a fine job getting corners to "PICK IT" on his own. Heyyyyyooooooo!..... Anybody?!?! ....Anybody?!?
So Harbaugh isn't enough for Kaep to get better... The guy that is by his side every step in his development
I think right now he could most relate to Steve Young. I just see a lot of parallels right now.
Steve Young. I remember the same frustrations with Young in the '91 season when he became a full-time starter. He would have open receivers all the over the field but would hesitate and take off without looking down field. Then he ended up becoming the most accurate passer in NFL history.
I don't think taking advice from any QB is going to make that much of a difference. He needs to actually get out and work on the aspects of his game he needs to improve on. Footwork, mechanics, reading defenses, going through progressions, touch passes, etc.
I'd say both.

Enormous talent needs thay type of coaching.

I also think he needs one or both of them as a mentor for his career. He's still very young and that's a lot of pressure on a young guy looked at as a leader.

of course this is the truth. the minute something goes wrong, the clammer pops up to bring x niners back. this is no longer their team. if the head coach is ok with it then fine but do not hold your breath. it just take lots of reps, the more he does it the better he will be. I know some are just so enamored with x niners coming back but joe montana looking over the shoulder of ck will just be a distraction. ck is not joe and ck is not going to turn into joe part 2 because they are 100 per cent different quarterbacks. real9 has it right on the money in my opinion. bring jerry rice back, bring joe montana back, bring ronnie lott back, sigh
If you had to pick one, I'd say Young. Kaep reminds me a LOT of Tampa Bay Steve Young. Many of the same issues, but also, many of the same assets.

Remember, Young really didn't take off until 30. Which is kinda scary. It will take Kaep at least two more years to come near his potential; peaking around five years down the road.

At least, that's how I see it.
