Colin Kaepernick
 
Now that's a backup quarterback.

He was drafted to be the future. Akin to BB being the "back-up" to Tommy Maddox in the 2004 season.

Kaepernick was hardly a backup, they traded up in the second to get him and almost cut Smith last year to let him start. A valuable pick was used on him and he was intended to be their guy for the future.

I don't understand why it's so hard for some people to understand the difference between drafting a QB for the future and drafting a QB to be a backup. The latter is what we need and the latter does not require a first or second round draft pick.

the fact is it does make one jealous to look at teams like the 49ers who have 2 strong options to play QB....the Seahawks are another one - they have 3 QB's right now who could start and all do a great job - one, Flynn, is making like $8 mil a year and he's now a backup. I sure wish we had that problem.

Neither QB is that great, however, they are both very good.
Instead they seem to implement a very real hard-nosed communicative "TEAM" effort, ALL THE TIME, no matter WHO is the QB. ?!
Harbaugh is very tough on them, ..., (oh, and Hi Tomlin, BTW: hint, hint, nod, nod ???).
;)
...anyway, that obviously still works. Surprisiingly also, there also Ain't no "media-doteing"Hollywood-QB's on that team, for sure. -and for that alone, I was also a little jealous then.
imho.

Team is the key for their success. They are not a one trick pony team. If one player goes down, they just reload and are capable of winning with other members of the Team. I am kinda jealous of them too.
