PFT on NBC Sports Network: Colin Kaepernick, NFC West/AFC West free agent needs

San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick celebrates his fourth quarter tochdown against the Baltimore Ravens in the NFL Super Bowl XLVII football game in New Orleans Reuters

There were plenty of big stories during the 2012 season, but it is hard to think of many bigger than the ascension of 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick from second-string to Super Bowl starter.

It was a big bet by 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh and it paid off handsomely for team and player as Kaepernick jolted the 49ers offense to another level. We’ll find out his reaction to the whirlwind year when he joins Erik Kuselias for a chat on Thursday’s Pro Football Talk on the NBC Sports Network. We’ll ask Kaepernick what he’ll be up to this offseason and what he plans as an encore for his breakout season.

Mike Florio, Shaun King and Pete Najarian will also be on hand to talk about the needs the 49ers have to fill in free agency outside of the quarterback position. They’ll be hitting all the other NFC West clubs as well and they’ll find time to give an overview of the AFC West as we keep setting the table for the March 12 start of the 2013 league year.

It all gets underway at 5 p.m. ET on NBC Sports Network.

    Hard to think of many bigger? How about taking a 5’11″ 3rd round pick and not only letting him start but watching him become the most poised and effective rookie QB in I don’t know, 30 years? Oh yeah, and he’s BETTER than Kapernick.

    Between this and the daily man-crushes on gay players (combined with regular attacks on anybody who you know, believes in God) it’s getting harder to take you seriously guys.

    NO qb has had a higher total qbr for their first 10 career starts dating as far back as the metric goes. That includes Aaron Rodgers who was mostly sensational or your precious Russel Wilson. RW is hood not knocking him. In fact he is more poised in the pocket but he also took a lot more snaps and Kaepernock is more dynamic. I would be happy to have either but I like Kaepernick’s higher ceiling and coaching advantage but I’m sure next you will say Pete is better with QB’s too

    Also your definition of most effective is a bit lacking since Andrew Luck CARRIED a much worse team to an 11-5 record as well. RW was with a very very strong (much as I hate to admit it) supporting cast

    Dude, shut up. If Wilson is better then why didn’t he take his team to the superbowl?

    I don’t see exactly how Kaepernick “took the offense to another level”. He and Alex Smith threw the idential number of passes over the season, and Smith had better numbers across the board. The team record was identical under each quarterback. Next season, teams will have some film to prepare for The Camel.

    No doubt Niner opponents next season are doing their homework now prior to facing CK7. But they won’t be able to do anything to prepare for the real threat and unpredictible element – GRo. O-Coord Greg Roman will be like the Mad Scientist all spring and summer devising a game plans tailored to each individual team on the Niners schedule. Even Fangio won’t have answers for dealing with that. Three things you can be guaranteed seeing now that he has a QB and off season to implement: a Hy-brid 2 minute drill, screens and 60 minutes of No-Huddle offense – and various combo’s of each with more personnel packages than ever before.

    YES THEY WILL HAVE FILM ON HIM BUT KAPPY WILL HAVE FILM ON THEM ALSO. DON’T FORGET THE OFFENSIVE COORD ROMAN TO PUT TOGETHER A PLAN FOR KAPPY ALONG WITH THE FILM WILL MAKE HIM EVEN BETTER. REMEMBER HE ONLY PLAYED IN TEN GAMES, HELL HE’S JUST GETTING WARMED UP AND WITH AN ENTIRE OFF-SEASON WILL ONLY GET BETTER. SO I WOULD SAY IN CLOSING THAT THE 9ER’S ARE A TEAM THAT WILL BE IN MANY SUPER BOWLS FOR YEARS TO COME AND SHOULD HAVE {10} SUPER BOWL RINGS TO THE SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS ORGANIZATION. AND BY THE WAY, THE 9ER’S OWN THIS YEARS DRAFT BY GETTING A 2ND ROUND THIS YEAR AND WHO KNOWS WHAT DRAFT PICK NEXT YEAR. THE NINER’S HAVE THE PICKS TO MOVE WAY UP IN THIS YEARS DRAFT, O MY GOD LOOK OUT TEAMS…….

    qbr=bspn= doesn’t mean dog doo doo

  9. goldrush36 says: Feb 28, 2013 8:05 PM

    Calm down there zevo. Optimism is great but that is ludicrous. Lets focus on #6 before skipping to 10

  10. thraiderskin says: Feb 28, 2013 8:33 PM

    He needs to make better decisions, much better. He deserves the opportunity to get better and had one hell of a 10 start year. Film will greatly affect Kaepernick’s ability as it stands, but if he can learn to read defenses and know of more than just 2 reads, than he should continue to be great.

    Osiris really need to shut up!! Wilson can’t even see over his blockers has to scramble to see.. Besides that he’s not better and your a clown

    49er fans need to realize a few things:

    1. The Raiders were the original team that was going to draft Kap.

    Harbaugh wasn’t being a “Genius” when drafting Kap, he only picked him to keep the Raiders from getting him.

    2. The 49ers lost their first Super Bowl under Kap. They are not perfect anymore.

    3. Russell Wilson and the Seahawks destroyed the 49ers(last season) with Kap as QB. The Seahawks will be even stronger next season.

    4. Had the Seahawks played the 49ers in the playoffs, the Hawks would have crushed them.

    5. Russell Wilson is a better QB Then Kap.

    Osiris33, please, is there one place we can have civil discussion without your political and social input. Lay off the Fox News for a while…. We are trying to have fun on this site and take a break from that kind of hate.

    Sorry Seahawk fans but Kap is better than RW in fact SF is better at every position than Seattle. That includes Coaching, QB, WRs, RBs, OL, TE, DL, LB, Safety’s maybe Seattle has the edge on CBs but not after this offseason! We are going to move up in the draft and get one of the top CBs! We are in such a great position this offseason with 15 draft picks and some cap room to sign a top DB or maybe even a WR! Look out for many years to come because SF will be on top of the NFC West like they should be.

  15. osiris33 says: Mar 1, 2013 12:29 PM

    Oh yeah SF is better. Do the numbers “42″ and “13″ ring a bell?
