Lowell Cohn: Early in career, Colin Kaepernick on par with legends

SANTA CLARA -- It's an off-day for 49ers football. The Green Bay game recedes in the rearview mirror. The Seattle game looms in the distance. And that means it's time for a midweek thought question:

Is Colin Kaepernick more advanced than Joe Montana and Steve Young at a similar stage of their careers?

We are not asking if Kaepernick is better or will be better or is nicer. We are asking where they stand — and stood — at this stage, Season Three.

Got that?

For starters, let's consult 49ers' coach Jim Harbaugh who considered the question in a hallway at 49ers' headquarters after his Monday news conference.
