Kaepernick is good and isn't a fluke, but he isn't yet as good as his numbers. He's a lot like Alex Smith- a beneficiary of maybe the best football coach in the world. Kaepernick locks onto receivers, runs a simple offense, and has struggled under adversity.
Wow Kearly, you really missed on this part above....you actually reinforce my point that you guys undervalue Kap.
Kap consistently hits 2nd and 3rd receivers, UNLESS the 1st option is open and by harbs offensive design that happens quite often.
Next, "runs a simple offense"??? Thats actually funny! Harbaughs offense is anything but simple and Kap(100+ plays at their disposal each week (quote from OC Roman), comes to the LOS at every snap with 2 plays called and he has decide which play is best based on the defense OR audible to a completely new play which he has done for some big plays since he became the starter. so easy?...please
Lastly, "struggled under adversity"...not as funny as the simple offense but quite near.
So, 1st start is against Chicago on MNF and he killed em! how about rolling into
NO and beating Brees in primetime, what abot defeating the patriots in Foxboro
in december for the first time in 10 yrs or taking out GB and Rogers in his 8th start and doing it in record setting fashion, or getting down by 17 points in Atlanta in the NFCCG and remaining cool and leading his team with his arm to a berth in the Superbowl. He struggles pretty well I think.
reg season stats:
136 compl., 62.4%, 1814 yds, 8.32 yds per, 10 TDs/3 ints and a 98.2 rating
In the 2013 playoffs Kap is 33/52 for 499 yards and 3 Tds and 1 int...plus over 200 yds rushing
So if that is your definition of a QB running a simple offense while locking onto 1 receiver and struggling with adversity then Keep it up Kaepernick!!!
