Theories for Colin Kaepernick’s meager rushing opportunities this season have ranged from the coaches’ lack of faith in his backups to a mysterious foot injury to NFL defenses being better prepared for a new generation of running quarterbacks.
On Sunday,…Extra Point:
For whatever reason the 49ers ran a bit more read option and Kaepernick did a good job protecting himself. On one play, he faked like he didn't have the ball by slowing up which really confused the defense. I suspect the 49ers will play with that variation a bit more.
