I dont care about 300 yards passing nor do I care about breaking off a 50 yard run once in a while. I want to see him play fundamentally smart football, that means not fumbling multiple snaps, and not dropping the ball on a consistent basis week after week. He did a lot right but the little things make a good player great and that's what I expect from him. I dont care if it was raining, that would not of been an excuse in the NFCCG. I want to see long sustained drives, something that did not happen in the 2nd half. This was a great bounce back game but the fumbles are killing me. He has been a pro for almost 2 years, I can deal with INT's on disguised coverages, he is still learning to read a D. But taking a snap is something that should be basic and a non-issue. Between the fumbles, the INT, Akers going full retard again, and Walker being an ass hat......we had 7 killed drives, 7. Think about that number, its big.

Originally posted by OldJoe:If you are going to try and be cute with posts, quote the whole conversation. I have been wrong about nothing. I said he would have issues and he has. I said he would be on a learning cure and he has. I said the basic little things would be problems and they have.

If this does not make you happy (winning the game), you really are a malcontent. Or is it that you have been so wrong about the QB spot this year? (Please see the member's many posts that look pretty silly now in hindsight)
just wondering why do you go through the trouble?
Without the massive amount of turnovers the D got, this game could've been a whole lot closer because we became static from the mistakes. I dont want to play the counter factual game because its not reality but even you need to and must acknowledge we cant win without serious luck from those kinds of mistakes. Had Walker fumbled 4 times and even got the ball back you would be screaming at him, like I would. I have become accustomed to clean games with little to no mistakes, the bar is high but I expect him to play to that level. His reads are getting better and is command at the line has improved immensely, I cant recall too much time getting wasted yesterday. But the mistakes were very apparent yesterday and calling them out is not hating. Hating would be dogging him out for not throwing 300 yards.
IMO what needs to get fixed in a hurry" the snap exchange, his running with the ball and not keeping it tight, and dropping back 10+ yards and getting sacked. Easily fixed but have been an issue for weeks and I dont get why its still happening.
You just never have positive things to say about Kaep. If i recall last week you complained that he didn't throw 1 TD pass even though the Niners scored rushing TDs. Now that he had 4 TDs in a game you find some other fault. I agree that Kaep needs to work on things, but to knit pick everything after such a great win is mind blowing to me. Just be happy and celebrate a tough road victory against a team that hasn't lost at home in December since 2001.
Im very happy he put up 4 TD's and my point that he needs to throw TD's was proven true. We cant expect a long run every week, its not going to happen. To win he needs to do what he did, throw the ball and score. If he cleans up the little things I will be fine, I just have a hard time watching something that I could do at age 11.
