Surprised how many people have turned on Kaepernick after two rough starts. I'm only watching on TV, but from what I see, our second-rate receivers are covered and he has nobody to throw to. He does seem to have happy feet now, after getting hit more than before. He also seems hesitant to throw balls away, and instead, wants to create magic on every play. I think as he matures he will learn to manage that better.
In the meantime, I don't understand why we don't dump off to running backs more or run some screens/bunch formations to help create some space. And oh yeah, run Frank the Tank more.
I definitely hear that, I definitely believe Kaep needs more time and I don't see it is a fair situation in which to judge him by. I see a secondary issue with the WRs also, whenever the ball is thrown to them and hits them in the hands, they seem to have an issue in catching the ball also. I think this also is a confidence killer for a qb, aside from not being able to get open. I think if Harbaugh wants to win this season, they need to put the hard hat on and really figure out the issues. If they can right this ship, this could be a tremendous confidence booster for them. They might need to go back to the hard nosed football that they ran when Alex was the starting qb and win games the old way, until their WRs and TE come back.
