Playing a revitalized D, Newton will wear flak jacket.

CK gets first crack at worst defense of 2014.

- David Gonos, DavidGonos.com

Newton is a game-time decision. Even if he plays, your backup QB is probably a better option this week.

Cam is banged up and the Bucs aren't slouches but he's still too explosive to count out here.

The Niners looked bad in the preseason but the 'Boys defense is trash. Kaep and co. should rebound with big numbers in Big D.

*Falling Star* - It is looking more likely that Newton will sit Week 1. If he does, his replacement will be Derek Anderson. Either way, the fragility of the decision making warrants a DO-NOT-START for CN. If he does start there is still a great chance he is pulled if the game gets out of hand or he is hit hard. Not worth the risk.

Kaepernick very well may never turn out to be the quarterback that he was for that brief period a few years ago, but his week 1 matchup pits him against one of the worst 2013 pass defenses in the NFL. It will take a team effort, but when all is said and done, CK should rank among the top-12.

Kaepernick will have a strong start to the season going against a Dallas D that is worse than the unit that allowed the third most yards in NFL history.
