This is for those ignorant fools out there that actually claim 49ers Quarterback Colin Kaepernick can’t throw a football with “touch”. Guess what you will find some touch passes in the above video (and these were all from what critics call a “down year” from Colin).(Dear Tim Hasselback: When you actually play a season as a starting NFL quarterback, please watch these plays before your next critique of an actual starting NFL quarterback).
0:25: TOUCH THROW TD on the run after getting tripped up
0:45: TOUCH THROW TD off Play Action
1:08: TOUCH PASS Across His Body Falling Back
1:42: TOUCH PASS 30 Yard Vertical (Hitting Receiver in Stride)
1:45: TOUCH PASS TD To The Front Corner of the End Zone (Directing His Receiver)
1:58: This was a Stupid Russell Wilson type throw into double coverage.
2:15: TOUCH PASS TD 40 Yard Touch Pass Hitting Receiver in Stride (Trust me..he can throw it further)
2:41: Great Throw Down The Middle of the Field Leading Crab (ESPN Commentary, “Great Route By Crabtree”)
2:55: TOUCH PASS on the run across his body to lead Brandon Lloyd down the sideline
2:29: TOUCH THROW TD on what is perhaps one of the sickest throws I have ever seen from an NFL quarterback. This was “The Catch” but with a busted play and greater difficulty.
3:33: TOUCH PASS from the pocket to a covered receiver. 19 out of 20 passes from any QB to Boldin with that coverage end up incomplete.
4:07: TOUCH PASS TD, where Kaepernick’s running ability and pump fake to the short receiver (who was also open), completely freezes the defense…..Kap connects with Boldin on a TD pass while on the run (Great chemistry between Kap and Boldin…the kind that we thought would develop between him and Crabtree)
4:36: TOUCH PASS TD – Some solid protection allows Colin to find Boldin for on a deep flag route. Another Kaepernick Touch Pass for a TD. Don’t you hate it when he tries to extend a play and holds on to the ball.
5:24: TOUCH PASS TD where Kaepernick steps up in the pocket to hit Boldin for a TD from the 25 yard line in what looks like a “flick of the wrist”. This may be the stuff that Kap is working on refining. But, the what the hell do I know (Fact: I’m not a quarterback coach). Also, I could care less how it gets done. It’s a TD and it was much more fun to watch than your “prototypical pocket passer”.
