Need better passing from our qb.
I don't want to hear about not having enough weapons for Colin either. At the end of the year when we/he needed weapons, he had them in spades. Lets see, one of the best TE's, best hands WR in the NFL in Crab and the best toss it up and catch it WR in the NFL in Boldin. On top of that we have Frank and one of if not the best Olines in football. Wholly crap people who else has more than that? Nobody.
So please stop with the excuses for Kaep, he needs to work on his craft a whole lot more than he has in the past (coach's too) Its great that he can run like the wind and make plays but he also must learn how to keep calm in the pocket and go thru his progressions.
Oh and our D is just as good as Seattles and our kickers are some of if not the best in the NFL, so its pretty obvious were we need to improve.
Yes, they will draft another WR and that's great to add still another weapon for Kaep but if he doesn't go thru his progressions on a regular basis what good is having 3 top notch WR's?
I think he can improve with coaching and dedication, just hope he puts in the time and effort.
I'm not saying our receivers are horrible when they are healthy. But you are drinking the koolaid. Boldin is the best toss it up and catch receiver? Do you even watch football? You heard of Calvin Johnson and Fitzgerald? Heck, Boldin dropped 2 crucial passes during the NCCG. Best toss it up & catch guy? Hell I don't even think he is at Alshon Jeffrey or Michael Floyd's level in terms of catching hail mary passes.
You really need to watch other wr's in the NFL. Guys like Josh Gordon, Dez Bryant, Julio Jones not only attack the ball high with great hands, but those guys also can run circles around Anquan. To say that we have better receiving core than ATL, DAL, DEN, GB, HOU, CIN, ARI, PITT you're nuts
After all that being said, most teams have a speed element on the outside. This causes safeties to play back. Unfortunately, we have the slowest starting WR's in the NFL. Vernon Davis is super fast for a tight end but unfortunately, the niners don't line him up wide
Let me ask you this. During this entire year, did we have a WR catch a pass and outrun the defenders into the endzone? So tired of watching defenders run down our WR's so easily.
