Agreed, he is not to different from RG3 although i give Kap the edge because he actually throws down field more and can hit covered receivers.. Both of them have a ways to go to be true pocket passers. Great offensive lines and run games help them out a lot.

That true pocket passer crap is overrated and will become obsolete soon. It's all about putting points on the board and the 9ers does that pretty well. If pocket passing were so great Jim Harbaugh would have stuck with Smith. There are over 20 mediocre pocket passing QBs in this league. Teams are trying to do away with them because they can barely get to the playoffs with them and when they're in the playoffs they're barely competitive. Did you watch pocket passing Schaub in the playoffs with that weapon filled team. Imagine if you stick a Cam or Kaepernick on that team. Big time!

The only person that I thought could lose the game for the 9ers was Colin, and I was partially wrong.

Usually they play very sound football, but last night, allowing a fumble, INT, and a kickoff return was very strange.

The lights were just a little too bright for Kaep last night. It won't be the last time we see them in the playoffs though.

Smith was benched because he was a overall average Qb. There are alot mediocre Qbs because there such a high volume of them. It just odds and probability. If " dual" Qbs suddenly become just as plentiful you can bet in there being plenty of average and bad ones around the NFL.

A good Qb, regardless of style approach is very hard to find. That why there will always be much more mediocre ones then good.
