I’m not sure it matters that much this season with the stout defenses in this division. I imagine we’ll need all the healthy bodies we can find at QB behind this evolving O line. If the Niners are serious about giving Kap a chance at playing this year, I have no doubt he’ll get a chance at some point and it only makes sense that we start with throwing Gabbert to the wolves since he’s had more healthy time with Kelly’s scheme.
The sinister corner of my brain wonders if the Niners are serious about playing Kap at all this season and are just keeping him fresh on the shelf for a last minute trade offer when someone gets hurt and a team gets desperate. Bad for that team and very bad for Kap as he’ll have little time to learn a new system. If they truly had his best interest at heart, why should they I guess, they’d have traded him a long time back.
I thought Lewis played with confidence which was refreshing to see.
Since you wrote this Lowell,the scuttlebutt is Kap will never play a down again for the 49ers. What do you think of that?
