Okay, the SuperBaugh articles are almost done now. But the Kaepernick hype persist at least one more day.

Yes, that's what Jack Harbaugh (the dad) told the media during a press conference Weds during a sit down. I'll take this as revisionist history, and won't start a breathless "who would you draft Cam or Kaepernick, and do you agree with Harbaugh" debate & poll. LOL. Nonetheless here's the exchange from the presser via the CBS article:

"After the first day of [the draft] was over, Jim called on his way home and he asked what I thought about the draft," Jack Harbaugh said. "We didn't have much to talk about as it relates to the draft, but he had not expressed to me who they were thinking about drafting at the quarterback position so I said, ‘Jim, tomorrow in the second round, surely you're going to draft a quarterback, but which one is it going to be?' and it was dead silent."

Jim Harbaugh trusts no one.

He said ‘are you talking to anybody?' and I said ‘I swear I'm not talking to anyone.' He said ‘we're drafting Colin Kaepernick. Do I not only think that he's the best quarterback in the draft, I think he's the best football player in the draft,'" Jack Harbaugh said.

Jim Harbaugh obviously wanted Kaepernick bad. The 49ers traded three picks to Denver -- their second, third and fifth round selections -- to move up nine spots in the second round where they took the former Nevada star with the 36th overall pick.

Now remember who was in that draft: Cam Newton, Von Miller, AJ Green, Julio Jones, JJ Watt, Patrick Peterson, and the 49ers 7th pick, Aldon Smith. Of course this begs the questions, as different media have expressed:

"So why didn't you draft him with the 7th pick and/or move up higher with the 36th/2nd round pick you selected him with Jim?

Yeah, let's just overlook that little tidbit. Nonetheless, You gotta love it! Harbaugh was the same guy telling Alex Smith last year, "you're the best QB in the league". And now he's saying, Kaepernick (who couldn't even start last year over career bust Smith) was the best player in the draft, and now Alex Smith is looking to leave town. Gotta Luv it indeed!

If it was alex smith that took the 49ers to the superbowl im pretty sure he would have said that smith was the best player in his draft totally forgetting about aaron rodgers and realizing that he's a dumb c***

Certain scouts have been gushing over Kaepernick for a good deal of his football career. It can be argued for but its not a good argument haha.

Kaepernicks's 15 TDs seem to back this point.

Cam only has 62 :(

Kaepernick also has to play behind that crappy offensive line with three first rounders.

well, well, well, what have we here? another insecure neckbeard (most likely 12 years old) shitting up the place with his insecure nonsense about Cameron Newton. you picked the wrong day to fug around, asshole. i've just texted Kurb (we're friends irl) about this thread, so he'll be here shortly to deal with the matter, and most likely hand out some sorely needed bans. i'm also going to report every post in the thread (for safe measure), as well as alert the other moderators via cellular phone and fax. and just in case you wanna try and pull a fast one, i'm screen shotting *the entire thread for additional proof* and e-mailing Zod about the matter personally. i'm tired of you stupid fuging Cam dick sniffers pressing out whatever poo about other QBs, spinning irrelevant poo about cam, and then having 10 page circlejerks a day on the fuging panthers board. it's time for you assholes to get a reality check, because this poo won't fly for much longer. prepare your anus, you 500 pound piles of poo. your days are *fuging numbered*.
