I'm shocked also, he's so different from Colin K... Looks like they will be drafting a QB with their first which is good for us :fingersx:

Well they traded for Colt McCoy last year, giving up a 5th and 7th round pick (but also getting a 6th round pick from the Browns), but then when they realized he wasn't good they signed Seneca Wallace and then tried to trade McCoy.

So we'll see if Gabbert works out for them. He does fit their offense much better than McCoy does, because Gabbert has the arm talent and ability to throw down the field. The other positive is that the 49ers OL is good enough that it can protect Gabbert, which is necessary since his pocket presence is arguably the worst in the NFL and probably the major reason he's not at least a competent Kyle Orton/Chad Henne-level QB.

I doubt it. He has been under three different coaching staffs and has done anything.


Are you guys surprised that SF traded for him or that Jax gave up on him?
