Here ya go. Pretty fair assessment of this Sundays game. He breaks down Kap a bit, I cant recall if he spoke about him outside the pocket. Apologize if it doesn't.http://mynorthwest.com/?nid=577&a=99502 ... +Hour%3A+3
Good interview, tho WAY too much Seahawks top for my taste (to be expected considering it's a Seattle station).
He did mention that Kaep sometimes stays on one read to much, but as I said before that's most often because he's looking to go deep on just about every play...something else Dilfer mentioned. Pretty clear he really likes Wilson.
I'm not comparing the two. Remember...Colin only has FIVE career starts to Wilsons 14.
Wilson was a very different player after 5 weeks than he is now.
Based on my eye, and its a layman one, Kap is benefiting alot from max protection and having limited options/reads to make. To his credit, he's maximing those oppurtunities. But, this is the NFL, all QB's should be able to do that. ESPECIALLY behind max protect with loads of offensive line talent.
Seems to me, the Rams posed an issue because their physical DB's and pass rush made his choices harder. Or, not perfect. Maybe he'll progress in that area?
Please dont use the Patriots game as any barometer. That's an AFC team that was intimidated the first 30 minutes.
I use the Pats game as a barometer for playing the Patriots again, but that's just about it. The Niners made the critical mistake of relaxing against the Patriots...and you can NEVER do that against Tom Brady. Once the Pats started that run the Niners just couldn't turn it back on and couldn't catch their breat. They ran over 90 freakin plays, eliminated the pass rush because the Niners were GASSED, and converted 5 of 6 FOURTH DOWNS after going 3 for 16 on 3rd.
My point is that I've read in some places that the Pats "exposed" the Niners D. Um....no. Between the Niners, 'Hawks, and Cards, I think the Patriots are kinda tired of playing the NFC West.
As for your Max Protect comment...uh....kinda?
Hard to explain. The Niner O is based on going big ALOT. 2 TE and 1 WR is pretty normal. Six or Seven Offensive linemen is a regular occurance. Countless shifts and formations...all designed to confuse and creat matchups. The latest is a bit of an inverted Wishbone with the TEs lining up beside the QB (in a shallow Shotgun...the Pistol) like RBs. They do protect Colin by giving him lots of protection and simple reads (only 2 or 3 in the pattern) sometimes, but that's not done specifically for Colin. Thats the basis of the entire offense. They did the exact same thing at Stanford with Andrew Luck and in SF with Alex.
Every week tho, they are giving him a little bit more. Remember, he's still pretty green and is learning as he goes. This time next year he'll be a very different player than the one he is now.
