Sounds like the beginning of the end for Kaep at the 49ers. Gabbert will be there for one thing, to offload the ball to the likes of Torry Smith who barely ever touches the ball. No one seems to rate Gabbert at all which says a lot about Kaep's form. The last two 49ers games have been complete trash. 49ers heading for a high draft pick which they desperately need in about five different positions starting with QB and running back. Carlos Hyde needs someone to help him out. Of course it is not all Kaep's fault as the offensive line is terrible.on3m@n@rmy said:Interesting article in USA Today makes a case for Dallas to go back to Weeden as the starting QB.
Check out the stats in that link. Quick summary here:
Weeden - 71 completions/98 attempts (72.4%), Rate = 92.2, QBR = 58.73.
Romo - 54/72 (75%), Rate = 98.8, QBR = 69.9.
Cassel - 30/52(57.7%), Rate = 58.5, QBR = 27.88, in 2 games vs NYG & SEA.
Maybe we give Cassel some slack because one of those games was against a SEA defense that was playing lights out and again did not allow a TD to be scored on them. Cassel's first game was also against a NYG defense that, as we saw yesterday vs NO, is not a very good defense. But then Cassel could be expected to be a bit rusty in his first kick at the cat. As the stats in the article make a case to go back to Weeden, I probably would not so soon. It's no good to be jerking QBs in and out that fast. I'd give Cassel a good chance to show what he can do, at least through the next 3 or 4 games (Iggles, Bucs, Fins, Panthas), and then see where things stand.
- Not a bit surprised SF has benched Kaepernick, and will now go with Gabbert.
- How many more weapons does Denver and Manning need? One more like Vernon Davis can't hurt, as Niners ship Davis to Denver. Just might revitalize Vernon's career.
