Kaepernick obviously had the raw talent to be a big time player but on a lot of teams he wouldn't get the same opportunity to flourish. I'm not saying that he is a bad player or a system guy, but SF is currently one of the better places to play QB. Best OL, strong run game, great QB minded coach, and Harbaugh is willing to adapt the offense to suit the QB. I can easily see him failing if he is dropped on to a bad team with bad coaching. I believe good QBs can fail in bad spots. I think Rodgers could have busted if he started as a rookie.


I like Ponder a lot in that draft. I thought he was a great 2nd round QB and the went 12th and I lol'd. The expectations of 12 v 2nd round is huge.

He went to a good situation, but without the talent and all the tools, Rodgers would have been another Flynn or Harrell. I thought back then that Kaepernick had by far the greatest upside of any quarterback in that draft, I think he should have been an early first rounder but got dinged for playing in a lower level conference and for playing in a gimmick offense that utilized the pistol formation, the same pistol formation that over a dozen teams in the NFL are now using.


Looking back, I'm amazed at how overrated Ponder and Stanzi were in particular.
I never discounted his skill set but I think that there is starting to become too much hype on him IE Jaw saying he could be the greatest ever etc etc. The last year with Smith at the helm wasn't awful and every successful QB to an extent falls into a correct situation. But to come back and say "LULZ look at the fools who didn't know teh GRAETNESS O DA COLIN KAEPERNICK" as if he was a sure thing just isn't accurate.
