Perhaps the biggest question that needs to be answered on the field this year is Colin Kaepernick's development. He faced a lot of criticism last year and majority of observations from both the press and fans is that he regressed. If you take a good look at his numbers though, he had arguably his best statistical season. The primary knock on him was his ability to read defenses and adjust his passing style to the situation.

Being as hungry and hard working as he is, those are the two major things Colin addressed in his off-season regime. He worked with QB gurus Dennis Gile and Kurt Warner to help refine, his reads, his film study, his mechanics, his footwork and his touch passes. All indications are that he has made adjustments in those areas, but we will not really know for sure until we see Kaep in the preseason. Meanwhile here is our meager list of Nuggets for today.
