Everyone is doing exactly what they are supposed to including CK but if one link breaks in this chain, the play is blown up.
You cannot tell me everyone is doing exactly what theyre supposed to be doing.
I'm finding it hard to believe some of you actually think the gameplan/calls only have one targetable reciever.
Theyre are multiple option, and coverage dictates target.
Kaep is missing reads. Plain and simple.
This is not by design and if it is Baalkes going to be firing someone soon because he was not very happy when Kaep was missing wide open receiver againt Houston.
Not all plays are designed this way. You're taking it to the extreme. But surely you've seen that almost half of them are designed for everyone else on the field to clear out space for Vernon Davis or Michael Crabtree (last season). Roman's M.O. is to get the ball into his play maker's hands by any means necessary. When the D schemes to take a specific player or players out of the game, often the only remedy to that is to dial up a play or two in which the entire team is basically a diversion. ALL TEAMS do this. It is not a new concept by any means and is definitely not unique to our team. It just so happens that Roman does it on a deeper level and far more often than others.
So yes, a LOT of the time there is only one read to make.
That's not to say that Kaepernick hasn't missed a few. Nobody is implying that he is mistake free. Just that most of the sh**t he gets is unwarranted and most people - not implying you personally - don't have the slightest clue as to what they're talking about when they're critiquing his play.
