When the San Francisco 49ers traded for quarterback Colt McCoy this offseason they knew they needed a viable back up behind Colin Kaepernick.
According to Matt Barrows of the Sacramento Bee, the 49ers are very confident in McCoy as their back up and believe he can win some games for him if Kaepernick goes down.
The 49ers signed McCoy because they feel they could win games with him if Kaepernick, who will be exposed to hits at times this season, couldn’t play. Look for the offense to be Alex Smith-like if McCoy ever takes the helm. He was solid this spring.
