SAN FRANCISCO (KCBS) – Who will back up 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick? John Madden agreed B.J. Daniels looked impressive in the 49ers pre-season victory over Kansas City.

“Once you see that then you want to see it again and again and again,” Madden told the KCBS Radio morning crew, noting the 49ers will probably keep two back-up QBs.

Daniels is competing with Colt McCoy and Scott Tolzien.

“The coaches know what they’re doing because they see it in practice too…They’re in meetings and practice and know everything about the guy. I would think that they probably know of that group who is two, three and four.”

The Raiders were among a number of teams victimized by blitzing defenses in the weekend pre-season games.

“The offensive line play all over the league — no one (looks) good,” the former coach said. “They’re bringing out blitzes and taking advantage of guys that haven’t worked together on pass protections. And they’re getting free rushers, and the quarterbacks don’t have a chance.”

John said all the blitzing makes the coach’s job tougher. “I think it really hurts evaluation. When you see a guy get five sacks, was that the quarterback’s fault, the offensive line’s fault, the scheme’s fault, or they just weren’t ready?… (If) you’re not beaten physically, then there’s nothing (you see) to improve on, other than you have to keep working on your scheme.”
