    Guy in one of my leagues dropped him too. Thought about putting in a claim but I have a feeling TR will be getting the majority of the carries sooner rather than later. They didn't give up a first round pick for a complementary back.

    I've been saying that since last season but so many people here just wanted to write it off as if he were just getting lucky or something. It was clear even then that this guy is legit and is way more savvy than a QB of his age/experience should be. He's going to give us trouble for years to come.

    I really haven't questioned them much on the offensive end, but I didn't think they had the defense to beat the Niners in their own house. I have a feeling this is gonna be an interesting race for the AFC South. Titans have a really tough row to hoe just to get a wildcard spot.

    They definitely got lucky last year. Lost the turnover margin significantly. Couldn't run the ball. Couldn't stop the run. Came back from behind on miracle plays all year. They rode that chuck strong thing for everything it was worth last year.

    Doesn't mean they aren't a lot better this year.

    Just kiddin, but yeah he has turned out to be even better than advertised. And that says a lot because he had a ton of hype coming out of Stanford, he's the real deal.

    I said months ago Kaepernick couldnt sustain last years level of play.

    If you want to know how good the Niners really are, think 2010.

    I think Kaepernick is the one who is overrated. He did pretty good last year when no one knew much about him. Now is when we start to see what he is really about. Everyone was impressed because he was on a team that went to a Super Bowl. That alone does not make him good. Other QBs to go to a Super Bowl include Rex Grossman, Tony Eason, Trent Dilfer, Stan Humphries, Neil O'Donnell and KFC.

    The 49ers, Redskins and Panthers were going to revolutionize the league with the zone-read option. Their combined record this season is 2-7.

    The 9ers are terrible.

    The Colts are bad, the 9ers are worse... due to injuries.

    Super Bowl slump.
