Why Kaepernick will never be elite

Basically all he knows is the read option which means he's a one-trick pony. He got exposed vs Seattle. As everyone can see he's not a pure pocket passer. From now on all teams will do is gang-tackle Gore, stuff the middle like a pimento olive, and let Kap run around like a chicken with his head cut off if he wish. It will be like releasing a cat at a dog show. All the dogs will be after the fluffy colar and within 5 minutes the only thing left will be cat fuzz.

I think Harbaugh needs to find a way to get Kaep to read defenses better. Time after time Seattle sent pressure and he didn't go to the hot read or the checkdown. He never saw the checkdown. I don't know if he even knows what a checkdown is. That's why he only had 15 yards passing and looked like a ballboy for the Montreal Alouettes. Does anyone know if he can speak French? 'ze chekzown'...?

If you watch him he's got happy feet. (To me he looks like he's crushing grapes so maybe he is French?) either way he's obviously scared in the pocket because his usual 'improvision' is to run. He's not Big Ben who extends passing plays. He's not able to find the second or third receiver unless he's wearing a dolphin cap. Or a Seattle uniform. Plus people have figured out the read option. You let the QB run. They want the QB to run until he's unable to run any longer. Just ask Dr. Andrews. That's why he's got to go. What he does doesn't work anymore. He's obsolete like typewriters because he'll never be a pure pocket passer.

Look I wish the guy well. I hope there's a place for him somewhere. Maybe if a variation of the Wildcat rears it's head he can be effective. That or a wishbone attack? If not there's always French Rugby. Either way for now we have to start Colt McCoy to salvage our season. If by some miracle we make the Super Bowl I pray we don't face the Chiefs. I couldn't stand the embarrasment.....
