De ja vu all over again


It pains me to say this as a Niner fan but Kaepernick has a lot of work to do. He is slow to read a defense and adjust protections and plays at the line of scrimmage. The Niners are constantly burning time outs early and racing the play clock when the defense is moving around on him. He seems to be operating with a governor on his throttle. Is it self imposed (deer in headlights?) or has the coaching staff brain washed him to be careful and not get hurt, robbing his game of the killer instinct that made him a phenom when he burst of the scene in 2012?

In a game that the 49ers ran the ball effectively it's puzzling why gore's touches were limited (havent we said that before?) and that they didn't go for it on 4&1 at the goal line. The defense played well enough to beat any team on Sunday and were let down by the offensive side of the ball. I think Offensive Coordinator Greg Roman had too much time on his hands with the bye and again got away from the basics. Why not roll Kaep out more (to his right) and stack some routes and to give him some easier reads against an aggressive pass rush? Those roll outs also give Kaep some room to run if the holes open up. I'm no expert but some of this stuff just keeps happening and I have to believe Harbaugh and Roman are smart enough to keep from making the same mistakes over and over again. This was the same losing offensive game plan from weeks 2 and 3, so why go back to it?
