YIPPEE KI-YAY. . . Colin Kaepernick is the NEW franchise QB of the 49ers. Unlike all of the doubters, I've been a supporter of Kaepernick since he was drafted in the 2011 season (Round 2 - Pick 4 - Overall 36 - 6th QB taken). We don't need a safe QB like Alex Smith who is afraid to throw the ball. We need a beast like Kaepernick. I've been waiting for years for the 49ers to finally bench Alex Smith. We finally have a coach (Jim Harbaugh) who has the guts to do the unthinkable. Thank God for that. Alex Smith will not throw another football as a 49er ever. Kaepernick is what the 49ers needed. A QB who is not afraid to gun the ball downfield and I mean downfield with pin-point laser accuracy and he's got HEAT. Plus he can run the rock too - not a running QB but a throwing QB that can run. Pick your poison when trying to defend the 49ers offense. 49ers are back on the road to greatness. . . this is the beginning of yet another Dynasty and it couldn't come at a better time with the new stadium on the way. Two things I've been waiting years for is a NEW stadium and a NEW QB and we've got both. It's a long time coming. WHO'S GOT IT BETTER THAT US? NOBODY!!
