The last time Joe Montana won a super bowl, his full back Tom Rathman caught 73 passes, good for #2 in between guys named Jerry Rice and John Taylor.
Except Colin Kaepernick IS NOT Joe Montana.
Montana: a superb leader, a phenomenal champion, and one of the best QBs to play the game.
For a 49ers fan, I think you should drop dead for even mentioning them in the same breath.
You're missing the point of the comparison. The argument was that it definitionally reflects poorly on a QB or a team if the fullback is as big of a part of the passing gamea as Bruce Miller is/was. The response was an example of a HOF QB and a Super Bowl winning team having a fullback who was a much bigger part of the passing game than Miller is/was.
It's not comparing Kaepernick to Montana. Instead it's using Montana as an example to point out the flaw in the argument. Should we reconsider Joe Montana's talent and that teams Super Bowl victory because Rathman caught a bunch of passes? If not the argument is flawed.
I got the comparison just fine thank you. And why don't you let your brethen stick up for themselves instead always being Captain-Save-A-Douche?
With that said...
There is a BIG, BIG difference being a top receiving option at FB during the 1980's with Joe Montana as your QB ( Seahawks fans revere John L. Williams)
Being a top receiving option at FB in Today's NFL with Colin Kapernick as your QB.
Its pure and simple, Miller being your 3rd best WR just cements the notion that Squidworth Krap-Pants is a borderline 2-read QB at best, as in he has his primary read (Boldin, Davis, now Crabtree) and his safety valve (who was Miller).
Its okay to finally admit your QB sucks and that his elite athleticism allows him to be an average QB.... and that your superior O-Line talent masks a lot of his weaknesses which is almost sh**ting himself in the face of pressure.
Colin Kaepernick is basically Michael Vick with a great team and a genius coaching staff.
If you didn't get the theme of this post...
COLIN KAEPERNICK SUCKS
