This. I blame the WR's partly, but I also blame the playcalling for not finding ways to scheme these guys open. New England for example does significantly more with even lesser receivers, now whether they are actually catching those passes is another issue altogether but McDaniel is finding ways for a bunch of rookies and scrubs to flash open, to get a step or two on the defensive backs, primarily through scheme. Harbaugh and Roman need to work on that, whether its getting McDonald open or Boldin or Patton or Williams, there's no secondary in the NFL that can continually shut down everyone, something has to give but as of yet, this offense hasn't been able to do so.
Regardless of the reasoning, Kaepernick is not being given any open targets to throw to, not sure how people can blame that on him, there's been simply nothing there.
If Kap doesn't have open target then he needs to make an excurive decision and get the hell out of there quickly and manufacture yards himself, go back to the coach and tell him nobody is open and let's run it down their throats.
But no, he strode there not using his ability or brain.
He has open receivers, he just doesn't see them, sees them late and can't make an accurate throw.
There were only a couple of times I saw that and one was a big one where he missed Patten in the endzone. Either way, his ass needs to report to Harbaugh and tell him to run it down their throats because the pass isn't working. Either that or take off and run it sooner into the clock.
