Former 49ers great Steve Young might be the godfather of the mobile quarterback/passer era.  Young was one of the first players in the league to be just as dangerous a passer as he was a runner. Young played in the disciplined precision of the west coast offense, so he was never allotted the time to freestyle like current Niners quarterback Colin Kaepernick does. Young who was as good as there ever was, per Around The League that he’s jealous of Kaepernick because he could never use the Pistol Formation. “I’m actually really jealous about the pistol. I think it’s such a cool thing,” Young told Comcast SportsNet Bay Area. Young thinks the formation has helped Kaepernick mature, by taking out the complex reads. “The pistol isn’t going to go away, but the job in the long run is going to be to deliver the ball from the pocket,” Young said. “This is a wonderful bridge for young players. “Look what’s happened to these mobile guys, my heroes, my guys. There’s this bridge now that they can have success, get more confidence, go to the Super Bowl.”

Report: 49ers Plan to Keep Both Colin Kaepernick and Alex Smith on Team Next Year

San Francisco may just be hoarding all the quarterbacks. With Colin Kaepernick looking like the 49ers’ starter for some time, the common assumption has been that San Francisco will look to trade away backup Alex Smith. The veteran, who was picked No. 1 in the draft in 2005 but didn’t have success as a starter until recently, wouldn’t be of much use if the job is Kaepernick’s...
