Really? Really?! Since win does over 400 yards, 3 TD's and no interceptions not qualify as a great game? And, go ahead and point out that the Packers secondary isn't that good. Fine. But, that doesn't change a thing. Laying that kind of performance on any NFL defense is, by definition, a great game by the QB.
Don't be so quick to judge! I'm not anti-Kaepernick, my comments demonstrate just how good I believe him to be. Though he played very well, he did not play as well as he played games last season. I really don't care about yards or TDs as much as I care about controlling the game and being a smart player when it comes to all aspects...clock, balance in audibles, etc. It could be that my expectations are too high given the time defenses have now had to watch him, but his physical skill level is just...amazing. Now he must mature in the mental aspects of the game.
The areas I would like to see improved? Touch (which has improved and will continue to improve as it usually does with young, strong armed QBs), clock management, calm pocket awareness, and making decisions quickly...as in when to run. He seems hesitant and I wonder if they stressed staying in the pocket too much with him. Now when he takes off he is being caught by LBs and DEs because he is committing too late. Perhaps the coaches are over thinking or they are just trying to set things up for later in the season...or are concerned for his longevity.
Edit--the bold are your comments, not mine. If you want to start being a poster who asks the questions for others and then slams them for it...well, I'll be very disappointed.
