11:28 AM ET 09.15 | Colin Kaepernick is one of the best young quarterbacks in the league and he helped to lead the San Francisco 49ers to a Super Bowl berth just a season ago. After the season, Kaepernick's play allowed the 49ers to part ways with Alex Smith, who ended up with the Chiefs, but there was almost a time last year when Kaepernick came close to joining the Philadelphia Eagles. That is a scary thought. Could you imagine a quarterback with Kaepernick's skill set in Chip Kelly's new offense? If you think that the Eagles offense is impressive with Michael Vick behind center, they could have been worlds better had the Eagles made a move to bring in the former Nevada stand out.

Art is art. Then again east is east and West is west and if you take cranberries and stew them like applesauce, they'll taste much more like prunes than rhubarb does.

And to think last year at this time no one even knew who Kaepernick was, or thought he was even any good, until about 10 months ago

And Msg. 8 manages to be more full of **** than a Fansided article. That takes effort.
