No I'm saying players that substitute for other players already play every game, just in different roles. Expect for the QB. The backup QB is a unique position of holding a clipboard. Unfair? What the fuck? Where did your moron eyes read that one? I'm saying the 49ers are a special case in that they can get their clipboard holder into the game plan. They have a fantastic option QB on their roster. Good for them. Almost every other team doesn't have that luxury. Almost every other team has a backup QB that's essentially a lesser option at QB. Kaepernick might not be the lesser option for the fucking 5.5 yards per rush attempt 49ers, therefore they can afford to give him snaps when it counts and have him run the option play and actually score. Ryan Mallet isn't going to run an option play and go for a TD. Neither is almost every other backup QB. That's why there used to be a special rule for a second clipboard holder. Nobody wanted them to count on the roster because they were useless.
