So, Jim and Roman have had some encouraging things to say about Kaep lately, so a reporter from Mercury News asked Colin some questions...
How are you progressing?
"It's just getting more comfortable with everything that we're doing."
How is it compared to when you played Tampa?
"At that point in the season, I was comfortable. I would say I'm just more comfortable now."
Do you forsee more playing time to get under your belt before the playoffs?
"That will depend on what happens with this team, how we're doing and what coach wants."
How has it been to go through a season and not play?
"It's different. It's a lot different."
But you're in a stage where you're learning?
"I guess, somewhat. I mean at this point every week you learn because you have a different scheme. It changes week to week."
What is it like on the sideline and do you have a play-call receiver in your ear?
"Yep. I try to treat being on the sideline as if I'm in the game."
Are there throws that are more difficult to make?
"Yeah, there are always going to be throws that you feel are a little tougher, depending on what they are."
What are the toughest right now?
"Off the top of my head, I can't pick one throw out that is really bothering me. For the most part, just stay in rhythm with your progressions. The biggest thing is just being accurate with it, and none of the throws should be too tough."
When you watch film, did you start the season looking at how Alex played and now you're more alert to what the defense is doing?
"Yeah, at the beginning, I would look to see how Alex is doing different things. Whereas now, I'm getting more comfortable with what I'm doing out there, so I'm more worried about the defenses."
Were you about to go into theArizonagame if (the 49ers) scored one more touchdown?
