Interested to see to more of the details from some of the cap guys out there, given their reputation when it comes to crunching numbers, I think the 49ers know what they are doing.

Kaep getting some serious bank. Thats a lot, but when 2nd/3rd tier guys like Flacco and Cutler recently signed similar caliber extensions, this is a relative bargain for Kaep.

The side effect on this, is now its obviously going to be a lot tougher to continue to compete for championships because they no longer have a bargain QB on the salary cap. So that obviously is going to make it tougher to retain the talent/add talent throughout the roster. Kaep's massive looming extension is one of the main reasons I have been so critical of Frisco's past 3 drafts. They didn't do much to "win now" in any of those drafts. Their best chance to win a super bowl was when Kaep's cap number was miniscule, thats now no longer the case.

But, I'm quite happy they got the deal done. There was no chance they were going to let him walk, and they got the deal done without having to use the franchise tag and all that stupid stuff. I'm also glad they got the deal done prior to the QB market exploding when guys like Wilson/Newton/Luck are coming due shortly.

With all the details about the contract coming out, this is looking like a great deal for both sides.

Niners can get out of this contract at basically any point if they want/need to. And for Kap, if he plays like an All-Pro he's going to get paid like one.

I'm glad we locked him up we need stability at the QB position. His work ethic seems to be off the charts and when your making that type of money it's always good to see them go out and work for it every day and prove the doubters wrong as I think he definitely will do

How come no one's talking about what Joe Buck said? He met with Geep Chryst and he has Chryst on record saying, (Paraphrasing, maybe) "We're willing to run Kaepernick, because we like Blaine Gabbert so much." This completely goes against the Tomsula presser that said players aren't disposable. Which I think is a snide at Harbaugh not caring about his players health.

How soon is too soon for Gabbert? Or should he already be in?

I don't think the Niners ruined Kaepernick. I think we as fans and I was guilty of this with the hate for Roman's playcalling were not fully cognizant of how the offense was designed to protect Kaepernick and play to his strengths and hide his weaknesses. Last year I think with increasing pressure from Baalke they tried to open up the playbook for Kaep and his weaknessess became more apparent. And now with a new staff his weaknessess are glaringly obvious. Harbaugh and staff were smart and savvy enough to build the offense that showcased the best of Kaep and hid the worst. Now we are seeing the real Kaep. Teams know who he is and will continue to stack against the run and force Kaep to beat them... until the season is over or until he shows he can improve and starts beating them.

Lets not pretend that Kap was as his best when Harbaugh left. The offense has been trending downward the past couple of years. When Harbaugh took over in 2011, the 49ers probably had the most talented roster in the NFL or close to it. The 49ers dominated the line of scrimmage on both sides of the ball, While the oline might not have been the best pass blocking line, they were excellent run blockers and the QBs had the support to win. the defense remained strong throughout but the offense began to get worse a couple of years ago. The 49er oline had injuries last year and Harbaugh started his guy Jonathan Martin who was awful. The 49ers should have been 10-6 if it not for the offense caving in last year.

That was extremely weird. Sorry to say it but I don't think any coach would say that. Joe Buck probably decided to take out some words because Joe Buck

I don't remember the last time people made so many excuses for a quarterback than our own DumbDumb.

The dude is LOST out there as a QB. Anyone who can't see that simply doesn't understand football. He has a fast start just like other mobile QBs who ended up sucking (RGIII, Cam, Vince Young, etc), but he's been figured out.

He's not going to be the starting QB next year. He's proven that he isn't a good QB. Even Baalke will realize it's time to move on after this year. He'll go to some other team & maybe start, but he'll be below average there too. The dude just doesn't have the brains to be good. Time for all the homers to admit they were homers and move on. They're embarrassing themselves.

Whatever is going on with him, and no matter who's fault it is, he looks completely befuddled out there.

Got to love the new leadership. Promoting Chryst was probably the worst mistake the Niners made among HC, DC and OC.

I hope (even though I don't know how) that Kap turns it around. The worse indicator to me was watching him on the sidelines after throwing the picks to Arizona. He was the sideline rather emotionless. It looked like the second coming of Rex Grossman. A guy who could throw picks in a game and still look stoic.

I think he looks stoic out there because he cares too much what others think. I often think the people that like to put it out there they don't care, care the most.

I know I always bring him up and he is not great quarterback, but Alex Smith said that after that "we want Carr" chant, that's when he stopped really caring what people thought about him. He finished that season with 10 touchdowns and two interceptions after that. Part of that was Mike Johnson being the offensive coordinator (not saying that Johnson's a great OC, just saying that there was less film on what he was going to do), and obviously taking a safe approach to playing, but not caring what other people think can't get you out of a funk.
