Default kaepernick or RG3?

My friend and I earlier had a conversation about who we would rather have as qb at usc. Obviously we were talking hypothetically but I said I would rather have kaepernick. Feel the guy is a beast and is making a good team even better.... What do you guys think?

I don't think RGIII would have fit our system. And not really sold on Kaepernick yet.

And I'm very content with Connor and Dylan.

Can't go wrong with either choice, but based on stats I'd go with RGIII if we had to have them for 1 year or 4 years (barring they stay healthy).

RG3

a healthy RG3 on the 49ers and they win the super bowl

kaps good but rg3 has him beat on every level, i think hes the better athlete and he seems to get it more than kap does

also, RG3 was a baller in college....kap did well but he also played in the mountain west

Come on man be easy. Why call me out? I'm asking a friendly question to the public. If you think it's dumb then stop posting on this "dumb" thread. Pretty funny that although we're all gamecock fans we still are hostile to one another.

Default Re: kaepernick or RG3?

I like to call these running quarterbacks the 3-5 year quarterbacks. If you don't win a superbowl within their first 3-5 years forget about it, they are going to be injury prone. I love how Gruden was talking about the read/zone option tonight during the steelers/redskins game tonight. I guarantee you, when the season starts, those NFL DC's will have an answer for it. RGIII and others like him will not have the greatest seasons (unless you play in the NFC South, where Defense is optional).

Actually it's a pretty good thread, better than uniforms or people getting upset at stupid menu items. Just because a hypothetical question is asked that makes you think, doesn't mean it's a dumb thread.

As for the question, I'd take Colin all day, I like his cockyness, his ability to win, his intangibles, his height and speed are nice and he throws a good ball, but heck RGIII isn't bad either

I love how people say "defensive coordinators they'll have an answer for it come next year" Yeah they'll put an extra guy on the backside of the read option.. and leave room to get gashed somewhere else. It's a pick your poison type of offense and these are good young offensive coordinators. Greg Roman is a genius in my opinion by dusting off old smashmouth run plays with 7 linemen on the field and meshing it with the pistol stuff. They don't run a college offense in SF or Washington. It's just about time it finally got to the NFL. it's here to stay.

Default Re: kaepernick or RG3?

I'd take Kaep for sure, RGII is tremendous, and faster, but Kaep has almost every other category:

Straight line speed - RGIII, but barely, Kaep can run with almost anybody in space

Quickness - RGIII, his biggest advantage, flat out elite.

Arm strength - Kaep, no doubt

Throwing accuracy - too close to call

Release - Kaep, but it's close, i think he wins based on quickness of release and he can get away with varying his angle of release (a la Drew Brees)

Decision making/brains - too early to tell, both make a lot of smart calls, and both make some youth-based mistakes (this is the area where RGIII could make up a lot of ground if he progresses faster)

Size/strength - Kaep, obviously. this helps Kaep's vision (I don't think anyone forgets that NFL linemen are ludicrously large human beings) and ability to break arm tackles. also Kaep's bigger frame is directly related to the big one:

Injury - Kaep, obviously... doesn't matter how good your starter is if he's on the sidelines...


feel free to add categories I overlooked (i'm certain there are some obvious ones)
