It's funny what stats say with small sample sizes. At this point there isn't enough info on Kaep to conclusively say either way. Take Alex's first 3 games of the season and he'd look alot better. Or throw out Giants and Seahawaks and he looks alot better. We'll see what Kaep settles into after ~10-16 games to get a much better idea of what to expect in future. Cam Newton was absolutely dynamic for the first 5 games then fell apart. Alex looked like one of the top QB's in the league the first ~5 games this year and then started struggling.
I think we need more sample points before we can say much about stats yet. I think Kaep looks great, but don't think it's as open and shut as being presented.
Actually, Kaepernicks first three games are better than Smith's first three games
I actually meant he'd look better than he does in this comparison, not better than Kaep. My point stands regardless, we don't have enough data to make any conclusions, just that Kaep is looking very good and hopefully continues to get better. Alex has been better than he gets credit for though, IMO.
