Found November 29, 2012 on Juan Elway:
I’m like a better Tebow Juan… Well, finally Jim Harbaugh has stopped f*ckin around with this coach speak and named Colin Kaepernick the starter.  I guess it may only last a week, but I think this is the move they have been wanting to make.  They inherited Alex Smith.  They flirted with Peyton Manning.  They drafted CK7.  I love Matt Williamson, scout and avid fantasy player.  Here is what he had to say about CK7: “With Kaepernick, Harbaugh can use his great offensive mind to attack the entire field. He can also attack the defense with designed quarterback runs and plays that stem off such runs. But this isn’t about Kaepernick’s outstanding running skills. To be a top starting quarterback in this league, which is exactly what I think San Francisco’s second-year quarterback will eventually become, you have to be a great pocket passer and have great command of your surroundings. Kaepernick has fantastic arm strength — he has a gun. Harbaugh can utilize that arm strength to attack all levels of the defense much more effectively, and that is also why Randy Moss, Mario Manningham and A.J. Jenkins — deep threat wide receivers — were all brought in this offseason. They were brought in for this time, Kaepernick’s time. And as we all know, a power running game and deep passing game complement one another extremely well, often with the usage of play-action. But Harbaugh now can call more deep posts, digs, comebacks and other ‘arm strength throws.’ That makes defending San Francisco’s passing game far more difficult than with Smith.” You have to love Kaepernick (I hate typing Kaepernick, so I may stick with CK7) going forward for the rest of 2012 and beyond.  He is another QB that can take off and run al a RG3 or Cam Cam.  Top 12 every week easily.  If he is somehow available in your league, wake up and go pick him up.
