The difference between Colin Kaepernick and Alex Smith is obvious. It's entertainment value. Suddenly, the San Francisco 49ers' offense has upgraded from VCR to Blu-ray.
"They think a lot of him in terms of handling the offense and making those decisions at the mesh point when they're doing the zone read stuff," the scout said. "In terms of 'Here's the play, you have 2 or 3 options, make the best decision,' they feel confident that he can do it."
Green Bay is taking notice. If nothing is available downfield, that's when Kaepernick will take off, Williams said. In coverage, safety Morgan Burnett says he can "make you pay" if you slip up. And while, Seattle's Russell Wilson, Indianapolis' Andrew Luck and Minnesota's Christian Ponder all had running ability, inside linebacker A.J. Hawk agreed the Packers haven't faced a quarterback this dynamic all season.
Kaepernick's game is based on smarts first. By comparison,
Russel Wilson scored a 28 on his Wonderlic test
Robert Griffin III had a 24.
Andrew luck scored a 37
Kaep also a 37
