The ball rarely touched the ground at Tuesday’s 49ers training camp practice. Alex Smith and Colin Kaepernick had strong showings passing the football throughout the afternoon session.
The impressive display was the best passing performance ESPN.com NFC West blogger Mike Sando has seen all training camp from the four teams in the division. Because of the deep passes Smith completed to new wideouts Randy Moss and Mario Manningham, Sando believes the 49ers offense can showcase more of the passing game in 2012.
