MT: Gore Shares Kaepernick Praise

Posted by Taylor Price on July 3, 2013 – 10:27 AM

Frank Gore is a firm believer in his quarterback, Colin Kaepernick.

Gore, the San Francisco 49ers all-time rushing king, shared his opinion of Kaepernick’s development in a recent appearance on ESPN.

“He could get a lot better,” Gore said via ProFootballTalk.com. “One thing I love about that young guy, he works. He works very hard. Even before he got the starting job he used to be the first one there and one of the last guys out. As long as he keeps learning, working from the coaches and just being him, he’ll be fine.”

It’s not the first time Gore has publically given props to the 49ers signal-caller.

Gore paid tribute to his quarterback with a “Kaepernicking” celebration in Super Bowl XLVII and told reporters this offseason that Kaepernick’s running ability opened up rushing lanes in the late stages of the season.

More 49ers headlines can be found in today’s Morning Tailgate.

Clark Judge of CBSSports.com previewed the 49ers storylines to track in training camp.

Greg Gabriel of the National Football Post listed 49ers area scout Justin Chabot among his best NFL scouts.

Kaepernick is nominated for a 2013 ESPY Award.

    Why didn’t Gore say, “He’s gotten better”?

    How is it reaching? Am I supposed to take Frank Gore at the literal meaning of his words (as posted by his own Franchise), or am I supposed to take Frank Gore’s words at the meaning I want them to be? According to you both, I have to take a loose interpretation of Frank’s words as more valid than Frank’s own words. Sorry, but I’m going with what Frank said here:

    “As long as he keeps learning, working from the coaches and just being him, he’ll be fine.”

    This is the same thing anyone in the NFL says about a player that hasn’t fully developed.

    Phatalerror: So what youre trying to say, according to what Gore said, is that he was as great as he was last year, and he still isn’t fully developed. WOW! Then I can’t wait to see him this year after a full off-season with the 1st team offense! He’s gonna be even more developed!

    Fact: Smith was better than Kaepernick at converting third downs by throwing.
    Fact: Smith was better than Kaepernick at converting all downs (except 4th, where Smith had only one attempt) by throwing.
    Fact: With Smith at quarterback, the team had a better third down conversion rate than with Kaepernick at quarterback.

    Hey you guys, does anyone remember that game against the wee giants in the NFC Championship game. Man too bad we didn’t have someone with AWSOME stats like Alex Smith behind the helm. We could have won that game easly with that dude, his stats are stacked.

    reaffirm my original statement: No one ever disproved what I stated. The stated goal for the Kaeperswitch was Super Bowl or Bust. Guess what? BUST! It’s history.

    I can’t wait for Kap too win as many Super Bowls as Alex Smith has, so we can all shove it in your face.
    Should post 1st 10 games stats against the 2, Phat love stats. Smith luv Phat. No no alex, Phat luv Smith. 2 hearts beating as 1.

    “yeah i dont think dc’s around the league are really focused right now on alex smith….. not to the extent that everyone will be trying to game plan and adjust to what kaep has brought us”

    Sure, the 49ers went 20-6 during Harbaugh’s tenure, and no one ever gave any thought to ‘how do we stop Smith?’ Never mind the epithet-laced speech given by Gregg Williams before the 49ers hosted the Saints in the 2011 post-season, in which Williams suggests that the way to beat Smith is to blitz him relentlessly. We of course know perfectly well the result. By the way, Smith ran the football into the end zone from 28 yards out in that game.

    Defenses have to play against Kaepernick differently than they did Smith. You could say the same thing about Peyton Manning or Tom Brady. So in the end, you’re only telling everyone what everyone should already know: Teams game plan against their opponent’s players, accounting for their strengths and weaknesses. Smith isn’t as fast as Kaepernick, and Kaepernick isn’t as skilled at reading defenses as Smith.

    I’ve never argued this matter from the standpoint of 2012 Alex Smith vs. 2018 Colin Kaepernick. This is 2013. Who knows where Colin Kaepernick will be by then. But I’ll answer the irrelevant question anyway:

    There’s plenty of reason not to compare their perceived ‘progression’ at their tenth career starts: Smith started for a talent-starved team (of which only Frank Gore, Andy Lee, and Brian Jennings have continued on the roster to this day) coming off a league-worst season with a new head coach (that was ultimately fired before the end of his fourth season and hasn’t been a head coach since), while Kaepernick started for a talent-loaded team coming off a third-best in league season with an established coach. Kaepernick had dozens of plays from scrimmage over a season and a half playing behind an accomplished veteran before injury opened the way for him to play, while Smith had his first start on only the fifth week of the season without the benefit of an accomplished mentor (Tim Rattay had fewer career game starts prior to Smith’s first start than the 26 Smith himself had under Harbaugh’s tenure alone; it should also be noted from a team aspect that Smith’s team never lost a game that year against a team that Tim Rattay’s/Ken Dorsey’s team beat earlier that year, and that Smith got two wins in seven starts as opposed to Rattay’s/Dorsey’s two wins in nine starts).

    You simply cannot compare the situation of Smith and Kaepernick at their tenth start. There’s simply no parallel beyond an utterly arbitrary and meaningless statistic. It should also be noted that in the NFL, the physical talents get the bulk of their notable and/or record-setting performances early in their careers, and yet on the average have little longevity career-wise, while the cerebral talents get the bulk of their notable and/or record-setting performances later in their careers, and generally have longer careers.

    FATAL-ERROR says, “But I’ll answer the irrelevant question anyway”.

    The dude is all about irrelevant! Everything he says is irrelevant.

    And on the Gore comment, Kap is having his first training camp as a starter. Of course he can get a lot better this year compared to last. If he cannot there is something seriously wrong. I bet Gore never said that about Alex. Because Alex’s peak has been reached & it was ok. We don’t want ok. We want great! The scary thing is Kap was great but can be better. Kap can challenge to be a top 5 NFL QB. Smith was never gonna be in that discussion and you know it! The point is you can read that comment anyway that suits your biasness.

    You crack me up!

    FATAL-ERROR: Do you even understand football? When a QB spends more time taking more of the snaps in practice with the first team and spending more time preparing with coaches by being the fulltime #1 guy in the offseason, in his first full year…it only makes sense that he will be much better. Are you retarted?

    “and so why continue to make the alex 49ers vs the kaep 49ers comparison ? as u keep doing ? its apples and oranges”

    Because some are under the false precept that because Kaepernick is not Smith, Kaepernick must be better.

    I’ll cheer for the 49ers this year, but I’m also here to see a lot of people eat crow over the Smith/Kaepernick affair. Either way, I’m in for more entertainment than I’ve ever had in a past season: A legitimate top quarterback will redeem himself on a talented and poorly-coached team, and a forum full of yes-men swallow their pride over dumb comments like:

    “When a QB spends more time taking more of the snaps in practice with the first team and spending more time preparing with coaches by being the fulltime #1 guy in the offseason, in his first full year…it only makes sense that he will be much better.”

    Because, No, practice doesn’t always make perfect. Playing in the NFL isn’t about executing a game plan. It’s about making constant adjustments. And all of these folks that are ignoring Kaepernick’s flaws and exaggerating Kaepernick’s successes from an egregiously small sample size are not making things better by portraying Kaepernick as the 49ers’ messiah.

    Practice make everyone better dumb@ss (aka FATAL ERROR) in every facet of life. Having consistency and timing with your teammates as well as more experience in a system is huge! If you don’t think that then YES you are an idiot. I suppose your argument about different offensive coordinators and consistency only applys for Alex but not for Kap on getting better. You continue to show complete hypocrisy!
    We already won the argument and you already eating crow because we have the QB we want. So argument and discussion is over. Alex Smith is just another QB on another team and what he does means nothing to us except for next years draft pick. Our coach knew what he had with both QBs but oh you knew better. HAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA!

    Every QB has flaws and practice makes no QB perfect and no QB is a messiah. Using hyperbolic terms in your sentences to describe us as having some fantasy like and supernatural view of Kap to attempt to convince yourself we delusional is a amateur and fruitless tactic. It is beyond laughable!

    BTW: You say, “playing in the NFL is about making constant adjustments”. Making constant good adjustments comes from practicing and studying teams tendencies & working with coaches and team mates more to be on the same page of what to during certain audibles and coverages!

But then alex had as much chance to make it to the superbowl as Kap did, against the giants, and he played his safe game to the bitter end. Why do you think the Saints game that year was soooo big, cause No one thought saftey helmet alex could do that.

    I read it. Now you can go watch the Super Bowl again and see that Kaepernick didn’t demonstrate the same capabilities the writer credited him with. By the way, that start came three starts after what that writer was referring to.

    But I guess I’m supposed to give you credit for leaning on some unknown sports writer who doesn’t understand the difference between making three reads from behind a terrible offensive line (as Smith was forced to do in 2011, and as Jason Campbell was forced to do in 2012), and three reads from behind one of the better offensive lines (as Kaepernick was gifted in mid-2012).

    “Because, No, practice doesn’t always make perfect. Playing in the NFL isn’t about executing a game plan. It’s about making constant adjustments.”

    I do want to amend this hastily constructed sentence. The “doesn’t always” part referred to what I did not specifically state:

    You can study all of the plays and have all of the chemistry taking twice the practice snaps of anyone else in the NFL, but if you can’t adjust once the opponent’s defense is on the field, none of the above matters.

    I can’t recall dogging Kaepernick for his work ethic. However, there’s more to being a great quarterback than practice. Some quarterbacks hit a limit in their mental progression because they cannot process the sheer amount of data from snap to whistle that they must in order to be an elite quarterback. My argument for Smith has always stood firmly on this basis. Everyone evaluates Smith vs. Kaepernick on the basis of what Smith had to accomplish behind a college-grade offensive line, while Kaepernick got to play behind a true NFL offensive line. And yet the fact is that while Smith would often have a second less (or worse) than Kaepernick would have in the pocket, Smith would make as many or more reads.

    This is not hidden from NFL scouts.

    I don’t understand why anyone would rest their argument for Kaepernick on his contests against specific teams. What about the Rams, Seahawks, or Ravens?

    And are you really going to suggest that a team that has been in the playoffs for four years straight will have ‘no fight in them’ at week one? I would think those players would have enough pride in themselves to want to return the humiliation that resulted from their coordinator’s neglect in the 2012 post-season.

    And now a relevant quote from former Packers’ cornerback Charles Woodson, “It’s hard to just continue to do the same thing over and over again and have it continue to burn you.” (It was defensive coordinator Dom Capers’ responsibility to make adjustments.) “Going forward, you have to figure out, could we have done something differently as far as our game plan is concerned?”

    The point of the article was more to highlight the intelligence of Kaepernick which you severly under-estimate. You keep over stating his athletic abilities but fail to acknowledge his intelligence and intangibles. Your view of things with complete tunnel vision in a black and white world does not allow you to see the flaws in Alex and the strengths of Kaepernick. I see the stengths and weakness of both and I have seen 8 years of Alex with great teams and bad teams to know in all those years I never seen what I seen in 10 games from Kaepernick. You can find pro’s and con’s in both guys at this time in their careers but there is not one sane scout out there who would choose Alex over Kaepernick to build their team after what we all have seen. If so, they need to be fired. Smith plays safe & will have good stats by being a good student because he will do what is asked. Playing it safe will be good enough but not great. Your biggest over-sight is under-estimating Kaps intelligence. You too focused on this game and that game and how many games to see the ceilings these guys have. I have seen Alex’s ceiling and it is ok. You can win a SB with ok, but you have a better chance with Great. Trent Dilfer, Ken Stabler, Doug Williams, Jim Plunkett, Jeff Hostetler, Brad Johnson & YES Joe Namath were ALL ok and in fact some less than OK. So even if Alex was to by some long shot win one it would not mean anything. Alex is in a long line of OK. I do believe he can be great but his personality type will not allow it because he is a “nice guy” who will do only what he is asked and does not really have the x factor the great ones do.

    A running game always helps. Peyton Manning’s first season with the Colts was horrible. Then the Colts got Edgerrin James in the following draft, and they became instant playoff contenders. The Packers expect to benefit from the draft picks spent on Eddie Lacy and Johnathan Franklin. I wouldn’t draw any comparisons between James and the other two, but it’s obvious the Packers understand that they had two fundamental weaknesses in 2012: The running game, and the defensive game. I wouldn’t choose any of the other NFC North teams as the winner of the division crown in 2013 unless Rodgers gets injured and misses several games.

    I get so tired of hearing how great Smith was and all that stuff. I have been watching SF football since about 1969. Does anyone on here remember Joe Montana and the first Super Bowl winning season? In the “Catch” game Joe threw THREE interceptions which kept the game close and the need for a comeback win. The fact of the matter is all the QB’s make mistakes and hopefully learn from them. I think someone as driven as Kap seems to be, along with his obvious talent, has nothing but upside down this road he is on. I wish Smith well in KC, but I don’t miss Smith at all. Kap threw an interception in the SB and people are all whiny about that being the first one the Niners have thrown, but he brought them back and if it weren’t for some very serious horrible play calling at the end of the game they very well might have won, but they didn’t and hopefully this year they will.

    The funny thing is, it seems I’m one of the few left that actually praises Smith and thinks it was a terrible mistake for the 49ers to keep Kaepernick and send away Smith, and yet I’m not upset by Kaepernick’s interception. My problem was with his overall play during the first half hour-plus preceding the blackout. His performance prior to the nearly one hour game delay was worse than any Super Bowl quarterback I can remember, and it was even less excusable because of the offensive weapons he had in Davis and Gore (as well as the acceptable alternative options he had in Crabtree, James, and Walker). The Ravens shut him down.

    It wasn’t until the blackout got defenders physically tight that Kaepernick had any real success on the field. (It’s bad for any football player to be sidelined for almost an hour, but even worse for defenders because of the reactive nature of their on-field responsibilities.) Kaepernick won’t always have the benefit of a blackout to get his misdirection game working when his straight-up game wasn’t getting the job done.

    “Nothing but upside” is a silly statement. Every quarterback has their strengths and weaknesses. I wouldn’t say that Kaepernick’s performance in the second Rams game or the pre-blackout Ravens game showed “nothing but upside”. Kaepernick has a downside. And in 2013, barring injury, San Francisco fans will get to see a lot of downside with any of his upside.

    Kendall, welcome aboard the Kaepologist Train. It’s bound for an 8-8 season. Enjoy the ride with the rest of your mates that have swallowed the Kaeperhype whole. You won’t just be wishing the 49ers had Joe Montana again. You’ll be wishing you could at least have back the much-maligned Alex Smith.

    i guess if you were only look at qb’s faults then you would always think that qb is bad…… but that is a personal choice, not a reflection on the qb really

    “…KAP who is a one-hit wonder.”

    Brad Johnson has a Super Bowl to his credit.

    I know you were being sarcastic, but Kaepernick isn’t even a one-hit wonder yet. His team didn’t win the Super Bowl. You can’t even say he carried them there, because Smith’s team helped him get more than half of the 49ers’ 11.5 regular season wins. Smith is the reason the 49ers didn’t play on the road in the playoffs from beginning ’til end. Stop with the ‘Smith never did this or that’ business because Kaepernick’s resumé pales in comparison to Smith’s. Most notably, Kaepernick hasn’t had to help a bad team win a single game.

    “what id like to know is why would kaep be getting worse, barring injury of more than a game, how does he slide down to a 500 % qb ?”

    I don’t believe he will get worse.

    Quarterbacks that see a drop in their second-year performances do so because the results of their efforts to improve in their ability at the quarterback position don’t increase at a rate equal to or greater than the results achieved by opposing coaches to stop them.

    Kaepernick’s habits in the pre-play and the post-snap, both inside and outside of the pocket, are already being examined by coaches around the league. Kaepernick’s mobility has been a saving grace against teams with minimal opportunity to study the peculiarities of his game play. Kaepernick no longer goes from week to week flying under the radar. Every one of the thirteen teams playing against the 49ers have Kaepernick in their sights, and they have plenty of good game tape in the 49ers’ games against the Rams, Seahawks, and Ravens to look at.

    It’s not that Kaepernick gets worse. It’s that the improbability is so great that he learns enough about the little things of NFL quarterbacking so as to overcome what defenses, given an adequate time to prepare for Kaepernick, are going to throw at him. It’s great that he’s “savant-like” at the chalkboard, that he’s “a leader”, and that he has the measurables. To be fair, those are pre-requisites for the position, and the 32nd-ranked quarterback in the NFL ought to have those traits. That quarterback also needs to execute reading progressions in a timely manner. That last skill is not something you can learn completely in an off-season. You learn it from game to game as you are pitted against one defensive coordinator after another.

    Four of the seven teams that lost to the 49ers when led by Kaepernick, the Cardinals, the Saints, the Packers, and the Falcons, all get an opportunity to do right what they already know they did wrong the first time, while the Seahawks and Rams will be eager to add to their winning streaks against the 49ers. To Kaepernick’s credit, if he helps his team to an 8-8 season, he’s actually done well as a second-year starter. It’s just that such a relatively lackluster finish would not be a credit to the 49ers’ organization.

    Send this back to Niners Nation:
    “Can we stop stealing the title ‘Fan’ away from long-time followers of the 49ers who happen to not agree with the direction the organization has gone? Who after all is the bigger fan?: The one who stands idly by when not chanting ‘rah, rah, rah’ on occasion, or the one who vehemently voices their opinion about their team’s failings.”

    I am a 49ers fan. Thank you.

    You said KAP is a one-hit wonder in the past. Those were your words. You have typed so much nonsense that you contradict yourself everywhere and your novels are full and I mean full of hypocrisy. Things that are negative for Kap do not apply to Alex and things that are positive for Alex do not apply to Kap. You a joke and we all have seen it. Brad Johnson does have a SuperBowl. That is the point dumb@ss! The comparison was between Brad Johnson and Alex Smith. And uhmmm Alex has zero SuperBowls with much more games under his belt. He had a great team last year but did less. And don’t give me BS excuses that only apply to Alex and not Kap like you always do.

    “Oh and we saw plenty of “upside” from Alex the year before in Alex’s first season & 11th game of the season under Harbaugh against those Ravens. Two field goals by Akers is all we had to show for points. Our defense played their hearts out by only allowing 16 points!!!!!!!”

    Every time someone brings up the 2011 Ravens game as a knock against Alex Smith, it’s obvious they have forgotten that Chilo Rachal was the reason a touchdown strike to Ginn was nullified, and the reason Alex Smith was sacked again and again and again.

    Coincidentally, Kaepernick got his first start in the league against a Bears team that fielded Chilo Rachal to protect their backup quarterback. That was the last game Chilo Rachal played in.

    Therefore, Chilo Rachal ends up unique in NFL history: By his incompetence, his quarterback was repeatedly sacked. Then by his incompetence from a second team, the opposing backup quarterback that filled in for the quarterback he formerly didn’t protect competently was given the best audition one could wish for. Kaepernick got every start thereafter. The result: Alex Smith was sacked.

    Blame Chilo Rachal.

    FATAL-ERROR keeps mentioning the Rams games. Interesting how he fails to mention how we were down 14-7 at halftime in that first game and was actually down 14-0 at one point until Kap came in when we were already behind and Akers missed opportunities to win the game so we tied. Even Craig Dahl (former Rams safety) said they regretted hurting Alex because he was “easier” to defend!!!!! We lost the 2nd game due to a bad call pitch and missed field goals. And please note that Akers was down right terrible during our stretch when Alex had “ALL STAR-CAN’T MISS AKERS” to win some very close games in his wins in the year and a half under Harbaugh!!!!! I love how he chooses to ignore that sh!t. Its amazing what hypocrisy and biasness can cause a person to choose to ignore and highlight!

    Who pitched the ball? Alex Smith would have held it. That is the difference between a hasty-to-react youngling and a veteran. The veteran quarterback can salvage a coach’s error in judgment. An inexperienced player panics and makes a bad situation worse.

    Blame Akers all you want. He’s gone now. Who will you blame in 2013?

    Phatalerror I completely agree with you. I have been one of the few that has been saying this for a while. Kaep choked in the Superbowl. Over throwing crab tree in the end zone and plainly relying on crabs for everything. He does not have crabs this year so we’ll see what happens. I have been a 49ers fan since I was a kid thanks to my older brother making me watch games with him and I will always root for them but they made a mistake on goin with kaep. He is all hype. I will follow smith and hope him all the best and I know their team will make the playoffs and do great things. But go 49ers the damage was done. I just hope if things don’t go their way that colt can step up.

    Alex could not score a TD vs the Ravens. Smith had only 140 yards and an interception. Kaepernick completed 16 of 28 for 302 YDS, 2 TD, 1 INT and rushed for 62 yards. Even Tarrell Suggs was praising Kaepernick and the guy hates QB’s.

    Funny how Kaepernick couldn’t put enough points on the board so that a field goal by David Akers could have won the Super Bowl for the 49ers. Why did the 49ers not kick a field goal in for the win from inside the 10 yard line? Because field goals was all the 49ers got for the first three-fifths of the game. Don’t talk about Smith winning games exclusively because of Akers. Akers doesn’t get in field goal range without Smith’s leadership and execution.

And in 2011 Akers was 84% converting!!!!! He was only 69% in 2012. Do you understand the concept of percentages????? Alex had a much better AKERS in 2011 and everyone and their mother knew this! On top of all this get ready to have your pea size brain explode: 2011 Defense helped Alex in 2011 with 23 ints and 15 fumble recoveries. In 2012 Defense had 14 ints and 11 recoveries!!!!!!!

One Fumble Recovery gave us the ball at the Saints 13 and one Fumble Recovery gave us the ball at the Saints 27 yard line. Alex caused 2 fumbles on his own and one we were lucky enough to have Frank Gore recover. And thanks to a genius play call from Roman who Kap would have ran faster, we won!

    “And that is the sheer craziness of it all.”

    No Fatal-Error-the sheer craziness of it all is no matter what happens we have our franchise QB to build around and have a longer window to win championships- not a another average QB (a 2nd choice Fantasy caliber QB at best) if all the stars line right and our defense and special teams play flawlessly and our kicker is almost perfect and has the best field position and play safe high % plays and the head coach taps him on the shoulders with encouraging “I believe in you and you can do it” words then we “might” win a championship. F that! I want a guy who believes in himself and has the confidence to zip that ball in tight spots and can avoid a sack when there is a breakdown in protection! Playing it safe is for mediocrity! I love my coach shooting for greatness! Kap is a lot smarter than you realize. He is no Michael Vick or Vince Young! Harbaugh know exactly what he is doing. He squeezed the best out of Smith and he help bring Smiths value up to get us draft picks to help build around a GREAT QB!

    Its the right move for anyone with a bigger brain than a pea!
