Keep in mind that the Niners are #32 in passing attempts as well.

They're #7 in yards per attempt so when they do pass it's effective.
Being last in attempts and yards isn't an issue. I do agree that efficiency is more important...but I think a lot of people expected Kaep to be so much better than our previous QB that it was about the Kaep show..and now that it is back to a more conservative game, it's disappointing.
I'm sure some people are using it as a jab to poke fun at the people who were anti Alex but pro Kaep when both players were on the team.
This is the thing I am trying to argue against. The idea that we have shifted to more conservative football is WRONG.
When the game is CLOSE, we throw the s**t out of the football. 400+ exciting yards against Green Bay and 350+ exciting yards against Arizona.
When we are losing, we throw the football a lot also, but not as much as when the game is close.
The ONLY time we have been playing "conservative" is when we are BLOWING THE s**t OUT OF THE OTHER TEAM. That is when we play "conservative".
We have been playing "conservative" a lot this season, because we have been blowing teams away this season.
The fact that Kap has played so well in the first half, has hurt his numbers in the second half, and it is creating the false appearance of conservative play.
