1. Can't read defenses. Roman had to dumb down the passing game tremendously for Kaepernick. The Rams also helped a lot by putting small players on Boldin.
2. Stares down his receivers. He gets away with this a bit due to his ability to throw the fast ball, but he almost had 2 INTs because of it when he failed to look off Laurinitas and threw it into double coverage anyways. Terrible decisions and got lucky on both throws.
3. Can't make more than 1 or 2 reads. Again, Roman had to dumb down the game a lot for Kaepernick. Really limited the passing game. Kaep got into trouble passing when he was asked to play like a true QB and read the field and throw from the pocket. Missed seeing a wide open VD for a possible TD down the field. Receivers not getting open? Child please, more like a mentally limited QB holding the team back.
4. Tiny hands. Once again, Kaepernick turned the ball over due to his little hands. He even had stick'em gloves on and the ball still popped out of his hand before he could hand it off to Hunter. Kaep has lost the ball too many times while getting sacked as well. He needs to learn to tuck it like a RB would because his hands are too small to hold onto the ball while being sacked.
We will be in trouble when playing against any solid defenses. We should be fine against teams like the Rams. If we want to continue having any success, we need to stick to the same ratio of run to pass and prevent Kaepernick from losing the games for us as much as possible. I like the 2 to 1 run pass ratio.
Please ban this guy. He isn't a 49er fan. Joined 4 days ago and all his posts, while you can be critical of Kap, go way beyond that.
Just ban him already.
You don't have to be a fan to post on the WZ.
He does overstate things a tad, but apart from that LOL "tiny hands" comment, there are kernels of truth to what he says. At least he has put more thought into his post than some challenged individuals who persist on calling him "elite" with really no justification.
He's still growing. But it's true that he does not survey the whole field well. It almost seems like he has regressed and is playing scared. It is bothersome to note that we have not seems quantum improvement in his game as expected. For instance, he still does not anticipate his throws and he does stare down his receivers, relying more and more on his fast ball as opposed to developing a finesse passing arsenal.
Hopefully he was just feeling the pressure of losing those two games and, with this blow-out, will now settle down and revert to improve his learning curve. The Niners need him to get better rapidly. He's got the building blocks.
Its amazing what happens when you scrap the garbage and play regular football. Think he played an ok game, better then the last 2 weeks for sure. Still needs to spread the ball around, can't make it a one man show every game. Hopefully this win gives him a confidence boost...but I hope he does realize that he is making mental errors that he can't get away with week after week. If he can get a little patience and scan the field his play will drastically improve, along with taking some heat off short throws. Maybe pulling the old stay late after practice with the WR's should be implemented.
