"If Kap is having mental issues, changing up a lot of stuff might be hard for him at this point...."
Every quarterback gets rattled, that's not a defect, that's just normal, Joe Montana got rattled, Steve Young got rattled, no QB is ever perfect, what he wrote made it sound like Kaepernick has some sort of defect, like he's maybe been riding around on the short yellow bus or something. Being rattled against a top-notch defense is not the same as "mental issues." If you're a pro-level starter, the whole concept of not making adjustments because you had one bad game is patently silly.
I just find it interesting that when Eli throws 4 INT's, nobody talks about his "mental issues", or Luck or any number of QB's. A bad game is a bad game, not sure why that should reflect on anything going forwards. Flush it and forget about it.
I think part of it is that even on here, people still seem to treat Kaepernick as some gimmick quarterback that just can't grasp running a regular offense and needs to be coddled which I think is far from the truth. I think the coaching staff simply fell in love with running the pistol formation, after they blew up Green Bay twice, they bought into their own hype and hence the team has gotten away from the offense that it used to run, not due to any limitations on Kaepernick, nor do I expect any lasting effects from having a bad game.
He's a pro, he's got experience under his belt now, I fully expect him to bounce back against Indy and make whatever adjustments that the coaching staff deems necessary.
