Kaepernick can't see any more than 1 and only 1 WR or TE. Then he puts his head straight down to the ground, stops looking downfield, ignores option 2, 3, 4 and tries to run. Which is far less effective this year because D have guys watching for the Kaep run.
At this point he's really useless.
You pretty much nailed it.
First of all, it is already a known fact that teams scout Kap as a "one-read" QB as pointed out by Karlos Dansby when asked to differentiate between Wilson and Kap.
Kap has a tendency to only key in on 1 guy.
As such, he never spreads the ball around which means our secondary receivers are basically useless.
In doing so, none of our young receivers are ever given even half a chance to develop and improve before they all get cut in no time.
Anquan 64 targets, Marlon 4 targets and Jon 6 targets. Can you believe that ? In other words, if your name is not Anquan or Vernon, you are pretty much deemed to be s**te.
Bottomline, it just means the 9ers' passing game is crap and incredibly easy to shut down.
