First of all I think it was messed up on how Smith lost his job, but I am begining to see why. Kap has better arm and legs. Harbaugh thinks colin can be taught how not to lose the game. Kaep allows the playbook more versatile with the read option. They ran it so much today u can see the defense afraid of him running it. People are going gonna hate unless he wins a sb.
agreed. I like Smith, BUT if you cant see the difference between him and Kaep you are either blind or biased. One thing that I completely overlooked during the Smith tenure was how much more effective a player can be after the catch the quicker the ball get to them. There is typically just more space because the defender doesn't have as much time to react and I think that is a big advantage CK brings. I would be curious to see what our RAC is with Smith and Kaepernick at QB.
I for one was totally confident after the LMJ return that Kaep would make a play... I thought it would be with his legs, but regardless, thats the "IT" factor that he has and Smith does not.
