It's going to take me a while to get over that miss last Sunday, because he just has to make that catch to make it a 70-second response to a catastrophic mistake in a hostile dome stadium. And it wasn't one of Kaepernick's fastballs. It was a floater right into his hands. Horrible, man, horrible.
But it was a bad play call. Dont know whether it was the coaches or Kaep just audibling out, but why even go for a TD and give the other team the opportunity to tie it with a TO left. Interesting that a lot of times the team plays ultraconservative when we shouldnt, and the one time where a run-run-run FG would have won us the game, we opt for a TD pass - run - run to the outside - FG. Bad playcalling leading to bad execution all around on those final 4 downs, and thats what did us in.
Gotta blame coaching on that. Mind you, Kaep 50+ yard run was right before the 2 minute warning; Im surprised no one bothered to tell him during the break that the objective was to leave the Rams minimal time to execute.
