    Smith = Sanchez < Collin = Tebow

    this is easy math IMO Collin just gives them a better shot at winning and a chance at a brighter future.

    It has a lot to do with the defense, just like Alex Smith who was a jag before hand. The fact is that the SF coach has the balls to embrace a two QB system with some competition and also having the luxury of having two guys game ready later in the year.

    A total opposite to the Jets strategy of totally going out of their way of ever having a viable backup that can play or even challenge the starter.

    Kapernick is a better prospect than either Smith or Sanchez were.

    Harbaugh was salivating over this guy at Stanford. Harbaugh's a good coach simply for somehow getting to pick a young unproven kid as his starting QB over a Veteran who was just extended and went to the NFC Championship without their GM going nuts.

    The football guy won.

    Sanchez and Smith are examples of bad GM'ing, similar to Weeden this year.

    You don't reach for a QB, you wait until there's a guy who you think can do the job them allow him to earn it, whether it's by injury or otherwise.

    As such now, I have no doubt in my mind if this is a start of a new trend, that "If God built a QB...."-type guys like Roethlisberger, Newton, and Kapernick are to become the most sought-after prospects that logic can finally prevail and JAGs like Sanchez and Alex Smith aren't even first rounders moving forward.

    Outside of Brees and Wilson, who are essentially freaks, how many sub 6'2" QB's are super successful?

    That's ultimately the point:

    What GM in their right mind was EVER salivating over Mark Sanchez? And that's even before you factor in where he played.
