Kaepernick had a hell of a game through the air. I'm not going to get all excited about his running because GB has a pretty suspect defense and for them to not really game plan for Kaepernick's biggest threat (his legs) is just something that championship teams don't let happen. Mike Nolan sure won't let Kaepernick run like that on his top 5 defense. GB's defensive game plan was horrible last night so I'm not going to get excited about Kap's running. Good defenses don't let that happen scheme-wise. I want to talk about Kaepernick's throwing. Anybody who criticizes him on the few overthrows/underthrows he had is stupid...no QB plays perfect games. Kaepernick knew where his guys would be, was in sync with his targets, and delivered nice passes. He played a great game and I expect him to have another good one next week.
Btw, I don't think there was anyone that WASNT sold on Kaepernick being the guy down the road. There was no question from anyone (except maybe leftymo) that this guy is the future. He had a great game last night. It's gonna be tough in ATL, but there's no reason to think he can't get it done. Another thing that many people overlook with him is the impact Harbaugh/Smith have had on his maturation process. By watching Smith the last year, he's learned to not turn the ball over. He does a great job and not forcing plays that don't need to be there and living to fight another down, or letting the defense get them the ball back. Kaepernick deserves more credit for his decision making and not forcing plays when they're not there. Rodgers forced that long ball into double coverage last night when it was clearly not there, and Brown intercepted it. Kaepernick knows when to attempt to make plays, and he knows when to throw it away or tuck and run. Great decision maker.
