I never listen to sports radio, so I don't know what fans are saying on there, I think most of us here have accepted our coach's decision whether we thought it was the right call or not. Our opinion is irrelevant, what isn't irrelevant is our right to honestly analyze and critique our team, and the leader of our offense, the QB.
Kap failed to mount a comeback. He's played played mediocre to bad in 4 of the 6 games. Our run yards per game continue to drop due to his inability to read a defense and then call a play at the line.
There's tons of stuff to criticize him for. He failed miserably. Our defense struggled too, but frankly, had we been able to mount time consuming drives like we used to then they wouldn't have been so tired. We've cut our long drives in half since Kap came in.
I don't have any control over what anyone says in this forum. You can speak your mind freely, but so can I. If I see criticism, which in my opinion is premature and unwarranted, especially since it hasn't been nearly close to 7 years, I will voice my opinion. I don't agree from the perspective that you are coming from. You clearly expect Kaep to put the team on his shoulders, which is unrealistic given his inexperience and playing from behind situation (against SEA), which would have been difficult for ANY QB. His performance is more than what I expected from an inexperienced QB, but his performance in my opinion still tops the other guy. I disagree that you blame Kaep for the drop in run yards. That is a team influenced statistic including coaching. You can continue to pretend that other variables don't influence the game or Kaep's performance and blame him for the losses, but I will continue to dismantle those premature reactions. I haven't seen any mention of the Defense from you, which hasn't been performing as expected. Don't you think the effectiveness of a Defense can have any impact on the offense and QB play?? I rest my case.
