I see what the OP is getting at, and I agree. I think this game will be won if Kaep can use his checkdowns more than he has all season. Maybe, use his checkdown as his second read instead of 3rd or 4th. I think he is going to have very little time this game, with the o-line issues were are having. So, hes going to have to be more decisive. Get whatever he can every single play whether its 2 or 3yds, just keep it positive, and not force things. Also, use his running ability instead of 3 reads, just pick up positive yds.
did boldin get any seperation from sherman in game #2? has crabtree struggled vs the seahwks physical play from their dbs...yes and yes...that is why the niners should expect same to continue on sunday, and look for other ways to attack their defense
Alex blows, that is all. Kap needs to play like Kap when he on fire because the Niners will NEED lots of points, because the Hags can put up lots, even on our D..Pretty simple actually..Go Niners ~ Beat the Seahags Into the Ground!!

It's not about trust, the o-line flat out needs to give him more time. I think people really undersell the effect the poor pass-pro has played in the games Kap has looked bad. I think O-line play is the biggest key this weekend. They need to open lanes in the running game and give consistent time for Kap and the receivers in the passing game.
He's has plenty of time this year, he gets sacked forgetting there is a thing called pocket. Instead of standing or stepping up into it, like he will hopefully learn to do one day, he freaks out and runs backwards, left, or right, directly into where the passrushers are. He's showing very bad footwork and pocket presence this season. Not sure why but it is making it seem like the line is playing worse than they were last year when they aren't. Hopefully he gets over those bad tendencies quickly.
The above is pure BS. For much of the season and especially against the better teams 70% of offensive snaps looked like fire drills with the opposing defense just running right though our Oline. What made these rushes even worse was they they were many times run defense rush blitz', so when there was no run they were already in Kaps face, hanging on him, or chasing him out of the where the "pocket" should have been, but never was. As they chase him out they have penetration on the left, and right of him=no where to go, and nothin to do..
It's been a huge problem;pass protection, for our Oline. This year I have been getting a big laugh when media says our Oline is one of the best. What, the best at making our QB to look like a rodeo clown running for his life, not being able to go though even 2 reads before his time is over..jeusus christos.........!
