Jim Harbaugh compares Kaepernick and Wilson but couldn’t stop raving about Wilson
San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh couldn’t say anything bad about Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.
“He’s a fantastic player, a wonderful, wonderful player and competitor.’’ Harbaugh said. “You see his arm talent, his mobility and his great field awareness. He understands the scrambling lanes and escape routes out of the pocket. And then he has that feel, that only so many quarterbacks have ever had, to really extend plays. So he has a lot of great qualities, a lot of wonderful qualities about him. He’s just a phenomenal player.”
Then the tough question came, when Harbaugh was asked to compare Wilson and 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.
“I think they’re both very talented quarterbacks,’’ Harbaugh said. “And they both throw really well from the pocket, too. They stand in there and deliver. Their timing and accuracy, they’re very good at that.”
