Sorry man, but Kaepernick rarely even gets touched when he runs. He's smart and he goes out of bounds. This was highly publicized and discussed after he destroyed Green Bay in the playoffs. I can only think of one instance in which he was actually hit (by two defenders simultaneously, no less). He got up, rolled the ball and got a penalty for it (he then threw a beautiful TD pass on the next play ).
I suggest you watch a little more of Kaep before making claims from this point forward. He jukes and evades all the time. He may not do it as fancy as Wilson does it, but he definitely does it. To say there's a "lack of juking/evading would be tacklers" proves you simply don't know as much about him as you thought you did.
Great argument. Only problem is you forgot to actually provide one.
You're wrong on Kaepernick's style of running. Period. He doesn't take any more hits than any other QB. Just because he's able to run doesn't mean he takes hits like Mike Vick or RG3. I would accept your stance if it were true, but it's not.
By the way, I don't need game film. I've seen every single snap the guy has ever taken in the NFL. When he was coming in to run a read-option behind Alex Smith, he was taking hits. Once he became the starting QB, he started running a lot smarter and has done so ever since. For instance, in the game against Green Bay, he gained like 3 yards of 181 after contact and it's not because he was going down as soon as he was touched - the guy was just never touched. He usually runs out bounds when he should and doesn't take unnecessary hits.
If I'm gonna try to argue with a Seahawks fan about his own QB's style of running, then I'd have to watch some game film on that player. I'm not doing that, you are, and you've clearly come to battle unequipped. To try to tell me Kaepernick can't juke or evade defenders is pure ridiculousness.
