08:11 AM ET 08.31 | The numbers were not kind to Scott Tolzien, who went 3-for-8 for 42 yards, but he's still in the picture. Josh Johnson finished Thursday's preseason finale 9-14 for 125 yards and a 132.4 passer rating. He threw two touchdowns, and was the game's second-leading rusher (behind Anthony Dixon) with five carries for 50 yards. Meanwhile, [Tolzien], Johnson's competition for the No. 3 role, had his roughest outing of the preseason. On one series he severely under-threw receiver Chris Owusu, who had two steps on his defender. ... Many NFL teams keep only two quarterbacks on their 53-man rosters. Harbaugh has said all offseason that he feels the 49ers have four starter-quality passers. But can they keep all four? "Yes, it's an option," Harbaugh said.

If Alex Smith were truly the answer, would you need to keep four QBs? I say no.

The interns should coninsider playing with a full deck of proofreading.

Mr. Ed has nothing to worry about. Keep 3, and the odd man out will be back working on the loading dock at UPS when you need him. Every team has a long list of inadequate backups to choose from.

Make sure he's got his cell phone, though. Have you ever tried to get a phone number for the local UPS depot? They won't give it to you.

The Niners tried to sign Peyton Manning in the offseason. that should answer your question.

Maybe you need a new computer.

Harbaugh said that he feels the 49ers have four starter-quality passers.

So the run at Peyton was an effort to have five of them. OK, now I get it.

3 of 8 for 42 yards? Rex Ryan is on the phone looking to sign this kid.

Yeah, they're collectables. Like china plates that chip easily and have pictures of the British Royal Family on them.

The article states that they could stash this Tolkien kid on the practice squad.

"Niners coninsider full deck of QBs" -- I would like to know what version of Microsoft Word -- or other word processing software -- the FN interns are using? I want to know which product's spell-checker actually said "coninsider" was OK -- so I can avoid buying it.

It's one of those new words to describe Wall Street guys who do insider trading and get sent to prison for it.

Harbaugh feels he has four starter-quality QB's...




Seriously?

August 31, 2012  09:54 AM ET

Wouldn't a "full deck" be 52 quarterbacks?

Something to coninsider, anyway.

I definitely agree with you on that...I doubted him coming outta college, looks like I will be wrong on that

Because of his performance against the Bolts?
