Well, since this dude agrees with me, I might as well cite him. Bemjamin Allbright, a Denver-based writer, says that the Kaepernick-to-Denver deal will happen “given time.” Since I said this two days ago, this dude be a genius. Mainly because the second Kappy hit the bench, flags popped up in Denver that Kaepernick and Kubiak would be a great fit for each other. Here’s the article.
Truth be told, the Broncos are the ones who are likely to blink in this impasse. They do not want to hit the season with Mark Sanchez as their starter and Trevor Siemian (splat) as their backup. Sources say, Kappy won’t push for a trade should a deal not be reached, and Kappy and Chip have talked to each other about the weather. So, believe it or not, the Niners have a bit of a leg up on Denver. I guess the questions we should ask ourselves is, do we want Gabbert or Sanchez as our backup? Since Chipster did OK with him in Philly, he could figure into a trade scenario. Or shit, maybe we go wioth Butt Fumble as our starter while we develop Jared Goff.
Other than that? We picked up a fair-to-middling guard Zane Beadles. He’s a zone blocking guy so you’d think that is the direction Chip is heading. But this is our big free agent splash? Sure, it’s a position of desperate need, especially with the departure of Alex Boone to Minnesota, but I’d like to see a few more linemen come in and push Pears out of the lineup. Anyhow, Happy St. Patty’s hangovers.
