Kaepernick Named NFC Offensive Player of the Week 


Second 49ers quarterback so honored this season, heh. Alex Smith also won the award after his near-perfect completion percentage night against Arizona.

KUDOS to CK.....and if my saying that is a surprise to some....it shouldn't be.  I was never down on CK, just on how Alex got dumped.....but thats another story.  Kudos to CK he is exciting to watch, but I really would like to see him limit some of that excitement by getting the excahnge between center and QB down pat.biggrin

Re: Kaepernick Named NFC Offensive Player of the Week 


As to the fumbled exchanges, I thought this tidbit was amusing:


As reporters asked center Jonathan Goodwin about the 49ers’ four fumbled snaps in Sunday’s win over the Patriots, quarterback Colin Kaepernick passed by the scrum today with a message: “Don’t ask Goody about it. It was my fault.”

Responded Goodwin as Kaepernick disappeared into the players’ lounge: “It’s 50-50, husband and wife. Of course, he’s the wife.”

Goodwin’s response drew laughs, but the fumbles in cold and rainy conditions against the Patriots are no joke, particularly given the weather forecast for Sunday night in Seattle: 36 degrees with a 30 percent chance of rain.

Goodwin noted he and Kaepernick made some in-game adjustments and the quarterback wore a glove on his left hand in the second half. The four fumbles, all of which were recovered, occurred in the game’s first 35 minutes.

I like that Kaepernick has the mentality to deflect all blame to himself (whether or not he deserves 100% of it) and also defers a lot of credit to teammates. Also, hopefully it was just a fluke of bad weather combined with Goodwin being up against arguably the most disruptive inside defensive lineman in the game right now. I know it was a concern coming out of college, since he didn't play under center much at all, but I don't recall Kaepernick having previous troubles handling the snaps under center prior to the New England game.

That is a cool little exchange there.
Regarding the fumbles, obviously Tom Brady was wearing a glove from the start, he knows those conditions.  Like that excerpt said, once Kaep put on the glove, he was fine as well.  So yeah, I don't think it had a whole lot to with his inexperience under center. 
Hopefully, he'll be wearing a glove on Sunday!

Not bad for a QB you were once convinced had legs too skinny to take the pounding of the NFL, eh? tongue

Haha.  Yes, you can say he's grown a bit!  (both physically, and as a QB)
Never doubted his skills...still has them skinny legs though! LOL

When all is said and done, CK might be the best QB of the 2011 draft!  

Cam Newton, Christian Ponder, Jake Locker, Blaine Gabbert & Andy Dalton were all drafted in 2011.  CK just got a little late start and perhaps the best QB coaching staff in the NFL.

Congrats to CK!!!
No play is too big for Colin Kaepernick!!!

I would also like to give credit his adoptive parents for raising such a well rounded respectful young man.  Great job guys let's hope the new found stardom doesn't get to his head.
