6-year extension worth up to $126M with $60M Guaranteed.... Wow. Most overrated and overpaid player in NFL History in my opinion. Good player, but not worth that.

He's a decent QB for what they're doing on offense, but that crap doesn't last long. Once defenses take away the option, he'll have to sit there and rely on his ability to read coverages and make accurate throws. That won't be a given, and I'm kinda surprised they committed to that kind of money without first finding out if he's capable of doing it with any level of efficiency. Especially after Steve Young said when Kaepernick’s first option isn’t open, he takes off running. And while Kaepernick often makes great plays with his legs, Young doesn’t believe Kaepernick can be a great player if he’s always quick to rely on his running ability.
I remember seeing a breakdown of how they draw up passing plays for him on one show. Maybe it was the one on ESPN early in the morning, but they basically showed how they only make him read half the field because of his inability progress through multiple reads. Maybe he'll learn. I hope not, though.
They probably think that he capable of doing that... which is why you pay that kind of money. Its no different for any other QB... he has to learn to play from the pocket... outside of the pocket he is outstanding. Against the Seahawks they held him in check passing all game. The Hawks also slammed the Niners run game. The only reason they were in the game offensively and lead throughout was because of his ability to make plays with his legs
The only thing to like about it is the money they have now tied up ...but he like Sam has a rocket arm, can make any throw, is smart... and unlike Sam is very athletic and can make plays with his feet... huge ones.
I'd rather him not be a 49er... because his upside makes me ill
Well then... Guess I'm in the minority thinking he's a pretty good player haha. I hope he struggles, but I think this forum really doesn't give the man enough credit. He knows how to win, and was pretty close in the SB too. He'll probably going to keep learning and getting better, he's still young. Doesn't help that the team is surrounding him with better talent.
