With four starts now under Colin Kaepernick's belt, the sample size for what he brings to the table has added perspective. Surely, he will continue to grow and develop with more time but, with only three games remaining in the regular season and with Seattle fighting for the division, there is not much time or leeway to test and tweak the offense. What we're seeing now is most likely going to be the product the rest of the way.
This leads me to my topic. In Colin's four starts he has thrown for three touchdowns and run for an additional two. However, Colin hasn't thrown a touchdown in either of the past two games. We all know that he is young and developing in the system. Is it the result of drops and miscues (yes, I'm referencing of Walker here)? Is it the result of conservative play calling in the red zone? Is it that film is starting to stack up on our young quarterback and teams are now playing him and his style better? I'm certain that the answer is a combination of these and other factors. The fact remains, though, that Colin is struggling with scoring touchdowns with his arm and that is what a quarterback is paid to do first and foremost.
So, the questions I have for all of you are these. Whether in the short term or long, do you think it matters if Colin uses his arm or his feet to score touchdowns? Does it really matter? What do you see as the upside or downside of each?
