UNR Wolfpack representin’! Kaepernick had a great game against the Bears, but he’s still quite young and raw. I would love to see him starting for the Niners in a couple of years, but thst’s a whole lot to be putting on his shoulders right now. He was a close second to Cam Newton in their senior year two years ago, and I’d love to see those kind of numbers from him in the pros. Plus, he’s from Turlock!
Why a couple of years? The 49ers need a QB now. Alex Smith has a very limited range of what he can do, and he can’t lead an offense. It’s only one game, but Kaepernick can make passes that Alex Smith couldn’t do in 8 years. The 49ers never should have allowed themselves to come into this season without a first string quarterback, but maybe now they have one.
“He was a close second to Cam Newton in their senior year two years ago,”
You mean Kaepernick also played “steal and throw a laptop?”
