On Tuesday's edition of Yahoo! SportsTalk Live Jim Kozimor asked Mark Kreidler the following question:

Kozimor: "You get to start your own NFL expansion team. You get an opportunity to choose your quarterback, Mark, and it's Colin Kaepernick or Russell Wilson who you get to choose from. Who do you take?"

Kreidler: "I'm a big believer that Kaepernick is gonna get there eventually, but I would take Russell Wilson to start my team right now ... he plays with a composure that belies his age ... Russell Wilson already in my mind shows an unnatural composure for a guy his age.

"He is truly I think capable of being a leader on the field, and although I think Kaepernick at times inspires, I don't know if that's quite the same as leadership ... I think Kaepernick has more promise in the long haul but you can see what's in front of you right now. Russell Wilson is sort of 'championship ready' ".
