Don'cha know that the failure to name Stevie as the #3 WR three weeks before the first game of the season is clearly a sign that Kaepernick sucks and Harbaugh is so frustrated that he's ready to leave?
Duh. I don't see any other way you could look at it. All other attempts are just spin.
Popeye doesn't typically spin.. you do. With that comes the likelihood that his comment will be taken seriously. I think there is a lot of accuracy in what he said pertaining to the possibility of SJ not being the #3 guy. How it doesn't matter to the financial and draft picture.
Now you like to mock posts that you don't appreciate, but the funny part is that in jest what you said could very well be accurate.
If Johnson isn't playing above the others, why would anyone want him around with that salary? It doesn't matter what his name is or what he hasn't done before, if he isn't productive with K-Choke, the Niners can't afford to have him on the roster while they wait for things to "click". In other words, the money could be used elsewhere.
I just get a laugh because when the trade happened the expectations were really high, some even referring to Johnson as a #1 guy.
