In the words of Terry Bradshaw, "we are watching the position of quarterback in the NFL be redefined tonight." Sorry Utah fans, but we are just getting a glimpse of why Harbaugh went with Kap instead of Alex. Alex had a ceiling; tonight Kap blew the roof off the house. You would have to be blinded by extreme bias not to understand why Harbaugh made this decision.

Ute "fans"? No comments huh? Not much to discuss anymore as this proved itself without a shadow of a doubt.

It's interesting to note that Kaepernick had 17 carries against BYU when he played for Nevada. He was impressive getting 85 yards then but his 181 on 16 against a good Green Bay team shows he is a fantastic player and not the WAC nobody that some implied BYU lost to. You could tell Kaepernick was an extremely talented young man back then. BYU's record that year was not good but a look at every loss reveals that almost every school the Y played that year had senior quarterbacks that have proven to be the strength of those teams. The Y was starting a freshman in those losses. (Florida State they started Riley Nelson but went with Heaps quickly) Maybe the the best plan is to always have a senior proven quarterback and never schedule a team with a proven senior coming back for that year.

I think that Coach Mendenhall and Coach Doman were envisioning results like this when they chose Riley Nelson to be the starting quarterback. They might have thought that a running and throwing QB's potential was greater than just a throwing QB's potential. So even though that didn't work out as well as BYU fans hoped for, it makes me think that Coach Mendenhall and Coach Doman are not as misguided/crazy/incompetent as many people made them out to be regarding the decision to go with Nelson as QB.

As I said, bencing the mediocre to bad smith in favor of the vastly superior kaepernick would prove to be the smart move.
