if you guys are impressed with this, you werent 9er fans last season... its obviously good to get a W but Kaepernick looked like an elite QB last year and so far this year he has looked like a rookie. Dont tell me that none of our receivers can get open because they are NFL WRs. if you take ANY one of of the top 7-10 Qbs in the league, he would have had a LOT more than 6 completions. He's lost his confidence, his decision making has gone to crap and has looked like a shell of himself from last year. Hes had ONE good game this season. if that isnt cause for concern, i dont know what is. Stop being biased people, take a step back and realize this offense isnt anywhere near what it was last year. Crabtree is GREAT but not having him shouldnt have this type of impact. I know Mario's missing too but please dont act like he did anything last season.
Did you watch the Saints game? Kaep made a few big 3rd down completions, but really we won because we had 2 TDs from our D.
How about the Miami game? Struggled most of the game, other than the read-option TD by Kaep that sealed it.
How about the Cardinals game? Again, it wasn't pretty, but Crabtree just owned Peterson all day and made it a game.
Then there was the SEA and STL games...
The fact of the matter is that the pistol formation wasn't diagnosed by defensive coordinators last year, giving Kaep some additional learning time. But now he has to face D-coordinators who have had an offseason to study him and he's playing without his #1 target, by far, and his #2 target is gimpy.
And on top of that, he still hasn't played a full season as starter yet...
... and yes, I watched every game last year.
