You must've just stopped at "Colin Kaepernick is struggling" and wrongly assumed immediately this is some sort of CK hate post. If you had seen the commentary throughout this thread, and understood the rest of the post, you'd see the following is being said: (To recap)
While CK is struggling, people are failing to consider why, and putting too much blame on the player himself. QB play has to be better, but there is no magic wand CK can wave to suddenly make himself elite. The reasons for his struggles this season primarily amount to two main causses:
1) Lack of speed in general + no speed being utilized to open things up underneath.
2) Kaepernick is still learning the craft. With our offense having to shift away from the read-option, CK is forced to start from scratch in many areas as he develops as a traditional drop-back passer. Mike Shanahan explained that it's not a simple switch to flick, and Greg Roman himself said Kaepernick has a lot of "the element of 'I'm seeing this for the first time'.." going on with him right now.
