    I don't think he's better than several current starters, plus you also gotta realize that his style of play is also difficult to mesh as a backup.

    I thought he was overrated when things were going well and when it finally crashed down and the league caught up to his style...it was over. Is he a top 40 qb? Probably but with his tricky style and yes... the cloud of controversy as well...he becomes a tough sign.

    Right now, I'd rather have Kaep than:

    Mike Glennon
    Brian Hoyer
    Carson Palmer
    Josh McCown
    Jay Cutler
    Blake Bortles
    Scott Tolzien/Jacoby Brissett

    At least. And those are all starters.

    Kap is 100% better than all those listed. I would easily take him over all them. Seriously, have you not watched him play or looked at his stats? He did that on a GARBAGE 49ers team. Imagine having talent around him again like the Super Bowl team.

    He has never finished in the top half league in passing yards per game, td, or comp%... and that's when the niners were still good. And then in the last two year's he and the team completely fell apart.

    The upside isn't there.

    That's usually what happens when you're on a team that has the lead and Frank Gore to run the clock out.

    But yeah I feel like it's all one side or the other here. It's either "He's not good enough at all" or "He's obviously good enough and can be a winner". I just think he's someone who deserves a shot in a more stable environment than Jed York's 49ers.

    Nope. Prestigious

    If you don't think Kaep is better than all of those players listed (the only one that is questionable imo is Cutler, he got signed to Miami because he's familiar with the HC) I don't think you watch football

    Reminder to all that Trevone Boykin, who has had multiple alcohol related arrests, is still the backup QB for the Seahawks, who would be a perfect team for Kaepernick's mobile quick read offense and are also generally considered a liberal team in terms of the outspokenness of their players.

    Yeah, didn't they bring him in a while back and their reasoning for not signing him was that he should be a starter? That makes little sense to me, unless they were far apart on money.

    Also it's entirely understandable that a bunch of people who were oppressed by Castro would not get behind someone who supports him

    As much as it pains me to say it, I'd also understand if Houston wouldn't sign him considering he made jokes about the city while it was being flooded by a tropical storm, but at the same time I'm sure that wasn't the thing holding Houston back from him

    You think if health he's better than Palmer?

    I don't think "if healthy" can be considered a qualifier though, personally. Palmer is up there in age and taking a beating, and I feel like that does play a part in who you'd rather have at QB.

    Prime Palmer over prime Kaepernick? Absolutely.

    At this current point in time, absolutely. Palmer is washed up

    I just think the upside for kaep is very low and with his style it's hard to have him be backup. He's never proven to be a good passer of the ball.

    I'm not going to argue that he isn't a top 40 qb. Of course he is.

    Yeah, I get what you're saying. It's tough to find a backup spot for him considering he requires a very specific offensive style to be successful, so it's hard to expect him to come in and produce the way you demand a backup to do.

    However, I think he'd be GREAT as a Seahawks backup or even on the roster of a NFC West team trying to replicate Wilson in practice. He isn't Russell Wilson of course, but the kind of offense the Seahawks run does somewhat mimic what Kaepernick ran in San Francisco with the backfield, the types of receivers they fielded, the extremely talented TE, etc.

    Definitely and wasn't that the team strongly considering him?

    Allegedly, hahaha. They brought him in for a meeting and Pete Carroll basically said "He's good and he should be a starter somewhere" instead of signing him to the backup job, which is currently held by Boykin who has been terrible.

    He's a good pocket passer though, the whole offense wouldn't need to change to fit him. I think that's understated sometimes. That article I posted does a better job explaining it

    Always do the right thing. Supporter

    Who was the last quarterback who could be agreed upon as a top 40 quarterback in the league to go unsigned the year after hitting free agency? Hint, there's only one, and it was during a strike year or something.
