Re: Josh Rosen Trade Rumors: Redskins Have 'Openly' Discussed QB If Made Available

I was a 49er fan living in California from the early 70's till 2010 when I moved East and jumped on the Redskin's bandwagon. I still poked my nose in 49er fan websites till a couple years ago. What I found odd is some old school fans like me that followed the team during the Walsh era all excited about Colin Kaepernick. Many thought he was just going to be a bigger and stronger Steve Young with tattoos.

I was never impressed and predicted he would flame out. While physically gifted he was fundamentally a complete mess. Inconsistently poor footwork that effected accuracy. He also had happy feet, leaving the pocket way too early. He stared down receivers, etc,etc. Worse yet it was a known fact he did not like working on the fundamentals of the game. I was stunned he even succeeded as long as he did.

Unfortunately for people like Kaepernick if the physical talent can mask fundamental flaws coaches at the college level don't seem to insist they perfect them.
