Kaep seems to slide when necessary and is 6'4 225 I'm not too worried.


How big is Ben?

anyhow on the Ben thing...Kaep gets hit way less, he has the online Ben wishes he had. Always a risk though.

Not trying to be a downer. Just haven't seen a running QB who can stay healthy much more than 2-3 years max.

He gets hit way less because he's played a lot less. We'll see how he holds up next season.

he will run less the more acclimated he comes to the pro game. dude has a cannon and can be accurate at times. still plenty to improve on with passing though. he never went under center in college always shotgun so that's an adjustment that will come with time. sorry for the punctuation on a tablet.

Steve Young spent a fair amount of time running...but your point stands.

he's a big guy. i don't know the numbers on rg3 and vick but they look small on the field, and it's no coincidence that they come up hobbling every other play. and ben never got hurt running as far as i know. he's always been safer outside the pocket than inside.

The only thing worse than hearing about Harbaugh Bowl for 2 weeks, if that happens, will be hearing about it for an additional week as all the talking heads start getting excited this week over the possibility of having a built in headline they can default to instead of talking about actual football.

Wasn't drawing that comparison. Just saying that size doesn't keep you from getting hurt.

No big deal. Just throwing that out there b/c these guys always seem to have promising starts to their career then one run starts a string of injuries until they are forced to JUST pass, where they get exposed. I don't dislike the 49ers, so it's not like I'm hoping he has issues.

Yeah the Texans are gonna be po'd after getting embarrassed once there, and just shut down a hot Bengals team (did I really just say that?). I don't think they're gonna pull it out, but I don't think it'll be a blowout. I'd take Houston +9 if I was a betting man.

I wouldn't go as far to say the Texans "shut down" the Bengals. That was a pretty awful game to watch.

We're off to the races with the Harbaugh v. Harbaugh crap here, because Flacco's a local kid and Harbaugh coached for the Eagles.

They didn't score an offensive touchdown.. Andy Dalton was 14-30 for 127 yards.
