He continued to throw low and missed wide open players b/c his inability to stay "poised".
With that said, he played good enough for us to win. BUT we cannot play like sh*t in the first half and believe we will beat our opponent in the 2nd half b/c that's what we're accustomed to. We will lose to Seattle if this happens. Kaep, imo, is an above average passer What makes him a threat is the fact that he can run....and run very fast. Roman must open up the game and allow Kaep to run on 3rd and shorts so we aren't 0 for 8 (or whatever that stat was) for the first half of the Carolina game.
Kap's first half throws:
Kap had a bad pass to Hunter while under intense pressure.
The throw that Boldin tipped was intended for Davis, and it was on the mark, and he made the throw under intense pressure.
He made a perfect throw to Davis that Davis dropped.
He had a mis-communication scrambling from pressure, where Crabtree broke the other way.
He threw a good ball to Davis in the endzone, but there were two many defenders around.
He made a bad decision on the near pick.
He made a bad throw to Boldin after running into Gore which caused him to limp around a bit.
He made a perfect throw to Boldin that Boldin dropped, but it was well defended.
He made a throw with two free runners coming straight at him to a part of the field where he thought Davis would break on a hot read, but Davis kept running straight. He had about a half second to decide where to throw the ball.
He threw an incomplete pass to Crab where Crab was again breaking to a different part of the field.
He threw a ball to Gore on a scramble and Gore was facing the wrong way to reach for the ball on the sideline so he stepped out of bounds.
He had a throw to Davis that wasn't ideally placed, but it was down and away from the defense and went through Davis's hands.
He threw a ball to Boldin where the linebacker got away with a close pass interference play.
He had the pass interference play to Boldin in the endzone. I don't like that rule, but it was called correctly.
The throws in bold are the only ones I would partially blame Kap with, most of them were mis-communications and/or were under duress. The underlined bold play is 100% on Kap.
The rest of the throws were spot on, some of them extraordinary, like the throw to Crabtree, where he was under super intense pressure from all sides, and Crab went up to get the ball.
He also did a nice job with the touchdown to Davis.
He had a couple of perfect back shoulder throws.
He had a couple of nice side line and corner throws.
Kap was under a lot more pressure than the one sack from the first half indicated. He played a little bit rushed, but we only took one sack, there could have been a lot more if Kap was not getting rid of the ball as quickly as he was.
