    J.T. O'Sullivan will start at quarterback for the 49ers in their exhibition opener Friday against the Raiders in Oakland, but Coach Mike Nolan insists the former UC-Davis standout has not risen to the top of the depth chart....

    CRAZY!!!
    2 of the 3 QB's on that roster are former Vikings and the 3rd is a number one pick.
    The sad thing is the best two are the former Vikings.
    I really hope Shaun Hill gets the job there.
    He put in his time in Minnesota.
    He was a great guy on and off the field.

    [size=16pt]Day 19: Nolan says JTO is the leader[/size]

    Coach Mike Nolan acknowledged this morning on his KNBR radio show what had become obvious of the past week or so: J.T. O'Sullivan is leading the race to become the 49ers' starting quarterback.
    I miss O'Sullivan.
    He made me chuckle a lot.

    I can honestly say that I never, ever would have guessed that O'Sucksalot would be starting on any team unless not one but two QB's in front of him were injured. I have a few good friends who are Niners fans, and I can't even muster giving them grief. Feels like beating up on an old, mangy, three-legged dog.

    well, he hasn't started a real game yet, its just preseason.
    Remember, TJ started a few games a couple of years ago, just to see how he'd play against 1st stringers.
    All that means is he's in consideration.

    Eh... when the coach comes out and says he's "Leading" the QB competition, it's a bit different.

    Believe it or not, some QB's actually perform well when they aren't in the KAO ;D

    Re: J.T. O'Sullivan to start at QB in 49ers' exhibition opener

    I just posted something in the "Trippin Tuesday: Spice Added to Vikes-Pack Rivalry" thread.

    The "Moving the Chains" guys were out there and Kirwan was talking about why JTO is having a better camp over Alex.

    All kindof interesting on how a QB familiar with a scheme but maybe not as talented can out perform a more talented QB that hasn't been in the system.

    Kindof gets back to what some yutz on this site keeps trying to push with respect to drafting players/signing FA Vets that fit the system over players that are more talented.
    ;D
