I would trade Ben for Kaep in a milli second.

you disagree ? Which team above would take Ben ?

Kaepernick is special. I see good things from him.

I'd like to see Ben complete a season without actually getting hurt.

i dont think they would want him any way. ben has very little upside left. I cant see next season being any different. To me ben just doesnt have the desire to be "great" like alot of the other Qbs...such as Brady, Brees, Manning and Rodgers... just look how he comes to camp every year. totally out of shape compared to 98% of the other Qb's in the league, to be honest I cant think of a Qb thats in worse physical condition then BB. ben's arms look like jello campare to Colin K. and even the old man Payton.

Or Greg Cook, Bill Kenney, Don Majkowski, Scott Mitchell, Erik Kramer, or any number of one hit wonders that teams overcommitted to and got burned by.

We know what we have in Ben for the next 3-5 years, I'd rather not trade away a chance at another Lombardi for a guy who's played a handful of games.

BTW, had Ben gone 16-28 with a pick and left his team at the 7-yard line at the end, he'd be getting crucified.

I'm willing to bet that if we get back to the SB, Ben will see all the missed opportunities that Kaep did not.

BTW - anyone notice Moss taking plenty of plays off and slowing up when traffic was coming? They really only played with 2 receivers all game - Crabtree and Davis. The damn fullback was the most effective by the 2nd half.
