This is a perfect example of what Colin needs to stop doing. Running around in a circle and turning his entire back on the field of play. He seems to like this technique quite a lot more than other QB's I see. Find your check down man, throw it away, go to a 2nd or 3rd read (not just 1 read), or throw it away. Spinning like a top backwards with your back to the field won't accomplish much.
And it will get you punched in the mouth sometimes just like this play.
Kap is still young, but hes already SO far ahead of a normal young QB. He definitely has things to iron out, but the important thing is none of his flaws are uncorrectable. Its just things he will get better at with more experience.
His most noticeable flaw, IMO, is his habit of rolling out left and trying to throw across his body to the right side of the field. I know hes got the arm to pull it off, but he looks so off balanced. Roll right. You get a better view of the field. Also, he needs to commit to whatever hes going to do earlier. Hes got this habit of hesitating between running and throwing, and by the time he decides, its just a weak 1 yard run out of bounds.
I feel like half the time he rolls out and doesnt find his 1st read, he has a clear running lane for at least a 1st down, but he doesnt take it soon enough.
Its all part of the development though. Being able to contend for titles while your QB learns the ropes is a rarity, so its hard to be too critical.
