49ers claim QB McLeod Bethel-Thompson off waivers

The San Francisco 49ers have claimed former Vikings quarterback McLeod Bethel-Thompson and released John Skelton, who they recently signed.

Bethel-Thompson went undrafted back in 2011 and was actually on the Niners’ practice squad that same season.

    what the hell are the 49ers trying to accomplish by bringing in these QB’s, and then releasing them? i’m a hardcore 49ers fan, but i really don’t get it. every team needs a backup QB they trust to step in seamlessly (or close to it). the 49ers obviously have never trusted colt mccoy…i don’t know what’s up, and i don’t think coach h or baalke know either. uncomfortable and scary to watch and feel as a fan.
