Why Colin Kaepernick should start and Alex Smith should walk

While I’m not stating the following post WILL happen, I do believe there remains the possibility of it becoming reality, not matter how slim.

The 49ers moved up in the 2nd round of last year’s draft to select Colin Kaepernick with the 36th (2nd/4th) overall selection. He is a West Coast-type athlete from the University of Nevada, leading his team to a 13-win season as a senior and one of a nearly empty list of college quarterbacks who have thrown for 10,000 yards and rushed for 4,000 in their college careers. Additionally, he became only the third quarterback in NCAA history to throw for 3,000 yards and rush for 1,000 yards in a single season. Colin was drafted 1 pick behind Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton. Continue reading “Why Colin Kaepernick should start and Alex Smith should walk” Why Colin Kaepernick shou…

49ers could have the best quarterback since Young, Montana

But at what price? The 49ers know they are the best option for Peyton Manning. He’s 36 years old looking for the last few good years in the twilight of a great and successful NFL career.

With successful veteran Randy Moss new into the mix, and a veteran quarterback, both looking at first round Hall of Fame inductions, the San Francisco 49ers have a chance to build a team that can win it’s first Super Bowl since the days of Steve Young and Joe Montana. You know, when Jerry Rice was around.

Even with Denver, Tennessee, Arizona, Miami in hot pursuit of Peyton Manning, it was actually the ex-Colts QB who contacted the 49ers for an opportunity to play for the red & gold, instead of the blue & white. What about Alex Smith?

Who will be throwing the ball for the Niners next season?

With questions regarding who will be under center next season for the 49ers, I decided to hear your thoughts.

San Francisco has announced that the next starting quarterback is not on the roster. Alex and Troy Smith have not solidified their right to be a starter next season, and the 49ers have the 7th overall pick in the 2011 draft with a new head coach out of a successful college coaching career.

Vernon Davis stated he would not mind catching balls from either Kyle Orton (being replaced by Tim Tebow on the Broncos) or Donovan McNabb (being replaced by anybody on the Redskins). With Michael Vick going off the hinges this year, Kevin Kolb is available from the Eagles. Then there’s the possibility of Matt Leinart, released by the Cardinals, having a chance.

What do you think? Vote below — you can select up to two options.
