    Re: Colin Kaepernick will be the starter, causes bigger problems for Patriots

    Talk about a team that can collapse the pocket? Ugh, theyve got one out there in SF. The Smith brothers are a force, and these guys dont whiff on tackles, they are as solid as they come. It will take everything TB and BB have to beat them.

    In response to Neal Page's comment:

    I disagree. Smith is a 70+% compl guy and wins games. This little magical gimmick idea to start a rookie QB in the middle of the season will backfire. Once we see a couple more weeks of film. BB will be ready.

    I don't get the infatuation.   He looks like he has some promise, but anytime a rookie Qb who can dictate and offense, starts quick, the more and more film that comes out, the worse they get.

    Would not be surprised at all with 4 games of film on him, that BB has enough to whip up the gameplan that pulls the rug out from them. Huge mistake, IMO, because you've now alienated your starter who had them in the SB last year barring 2 STs fumbles by a rookie kick returner.  Huge mistake by Harbaugh. Now, if Smith faltered after returning from the concussion, then you have a built in excuse and then you turn to Kapernick.  Major blunder. This might sink their SB hopes it's so dumb.

    BB will use the Vick/Roethlisberger gameplan (what he should have used in Seattle this year) and NE will flummox Kapernick.

    Smith is much better at distributing the ball than Kapernick.   The gameplan will be contain Gore and bottle up Kapernick.  If Jones is back by then, maybe some 3-4 action in that game (with Nink) to keep him in the pocket.




    Agreed, assuming BB has the horses.

    I think Harbaugh is looking at the Up side, with an eye on the Lombardi trophy. If Kaepernick plays like a good wild card, then, combined with that D, they could be a terror in the PS. In Smith, he knows what he has; an improved and now reliable QB, yet still a game manager for the most part.

    TFB12 did you not see how Colin would have had a horrible pick 6 in the red zone last week if not for a savvy offensive pass disruption from Randy Moss? 

    Colin is a dice roll and could easily be better - but could also be worse. 

    That said if the 49ers make it all the way to the Super Bowl, then no, I wouldn't want to see him then as he is more versatile than Smith....

    I did and hey, he will make mistakes.  Certainly Smith has the experience over him but the upside, the athletic ability is in favor of Kaepernick.  The 49'ers offense has many more options with Kaepernick as the QB and I think is a far better option for them and much more dangerous to opponents defenses then Smith is.

    I have nothing against Smith, I actually like the guy.  I feel he has been screwed over the years and is getting screwed with this deal  I have met and talked with him a few times and he is a cool, and very likeable guy.  But from a QB standpoint, If my team was the 49'ers I would choose Kaepernick over Smith.
