San Francisco 49ers: Is Colin Kaepernick the Quarterback of the Future?

Colin Kaepernick has emerged as one of the best quarterbacks in the game.

Sad, but true; he has risen to the top proving that a young quarterback doesn’t have to work his way up. Now technically, he did get his first chance because of an Alex Smith injury, but Jim Harbaugh had hinted at already making the transition.

Believe what you want, but the question is: will Kaepernick be the quarterback of the future?

My obvious answer would be “yes.” Plain and simple. But don’t forget that there is “karma,” if you believe in that sort of stuff. Taking Smith’s position could mean bad things to come for Kaepernick, but the chances of his position being taken are slim to none.

So I’m not worried about that. We’ll have to see what the future holds for him.

Eleven starts doesn’t prove much, but it it does prove that he has the makings to become one of the greats. However, there is no denying that hasn’t had enough time to truly prove to all the fans of football that he is “the next one.”


If you think him wearing a Miami Dolphins hat is a big deal you, then you are delusionally insane.

Who cares? No one (should).

Who knows? Maybe that was his favorite childhood team. The only way to know for sure is that the words you’re looking for come from Kaepernick’s mouth.


Colin Kaepernick can and will become one of the league’s best of the best.

If you don’t believe me, look at his stats. He accumulated 2,523 passing yards and 14 touchdowns in just 11 starts, 679 rushing yards for an average of 7.7 yards per carry on just 88 carries. He also earned eight rushing touchdowns.

If that doesn’t prove that he can be anything he wants, I don’t know what will.
