What they are missing and all these analysts are missing is Kaep has the strongest arm in the NFL. He's also accurate. He's plenty effective in the pocket. He's a hard guy to stop. The only time I've ever seen him run around that much was the Packer game. Because they didn't keep end of the line discipline. But everybody thinks he is a "running QB."..... In the Atlanta game and the Super Bowl he didn't run that much.
Plus, a lot of his yards were on plays where the Packers blitzed and ran past him opening up the field for a scramble run. Last season, the Niners ran Kaepernick on designed running plays 3% of the time. Newton, RGIII and Wilson all ran designed running plays more often than the Niners did for Kaepernick. Next season, I predict that they'll run the read-option as a wrinkle in the offense now and then, no more than that.
