I just want to feel comfortable with our back ups and I still do not feel that way. This rant may have nothing to do with the topic but just wanted to share my opinion.. should we be at the point now when someone starts to seperate themselves from the three pack? I would appreciate an objective answer. thank you cc
well...I don't know why we need someone to separate away from the pack, what if the other two are just..you know doing good compared to other backup backups. Besides, Kaep was facing mostly the starters. I know we pulled away our starters way earlier than they did.
I think if you watch his passes over and over again...along with him acknowledging that one pass/decision he would like to take back.....the more you watch the more you could see that he is accurate..and if it came down to it...that Harbaugh would surely put him in the best position to succeed when it counts during the season.
I think when ever a QB read option is called, some fans look at it as a negative on Kaep's part...like he is holding the offense back. If you notice during those situations, the defense was not blitzing like crazy or at least not getting pressure like it did before....on a few plays, Kaep and James pickup good yardage...but more importantly, is when they call passes from those situations. You usually get more time to make a decision...and by then the defenders are usually playing underneath, which opens up opportunity down the field. I FULLY expect Alex to be doing the same thing...like he did alittle bit last season.
