Over the past several months I have been reading and hearing about how great a quarterback Colin Kaepernick is. I have even seen cupcakes at Save Mart being called “KapCakes.”

Although he is probably a real nice guy, he is not a great quarterback. He is a good quarterback at most. Alex Smith is a great quarterback; just compare their records. To date, Smith is undefeated, whereas Kap lost a Super Bowl and yes, even lost to the Rams. So let’s call it what it is and not what you would like it to be.

Go Rams.
