I disagree, are you saying he had a foot injury before the season started? I actually think the coaching staff fell in love from what they saw week 1 and didn't want him to use his legs unless he had too. But IF it was the foot injury, than that would make some sense as well.

I have no idea when he got the injury. I only know the injury appeared on the Injury Report at a time when he wasn't really as explosive as he is now. Originally, I didn't know he was injured. But I did notice he wasn't really as explosive in the pocket. You know, the quick step to get out of a sack. He had so little acceleration. I thought maybe his workout program had slowed him down. I thought maybe defenders were better prepared and were taking better angles at him. But there was something definitely wrong about him. Then, the injury showed up. Then a few weeks later, he's back to his old self, as fast as he was last year, eluding the rush better and running for touchdowns. That's all I can say.

It is certainly possible, but I think it goes deeper than that. I don't doubt he couldn't be dealing with some type of injury, but it looked like he was down right hesitant to run.

You'd look hesitant too if your first step was hindered by pain.

Maybe the injury was just a smoke screen to divert the attention of the media from the lack of running, that was actually inherent to the gameplan. But we couldn't possibly know. I prefer to give the team the benefit of the doubt.

I would give the team the benefit of doubt if it wasn't for Harbaugh Laughing . We all love Harbaugh, but this guy will say whatever the hell he has to in his press conference. So yes, maybe it was the foot injury, but I still stand by what I said. I do think it goes further than the injury. Still, doesn't matter now as he is using his two lethal weapons.

Quote:
Reporter: What is the foot issue and has it impacted you?

Kaepernick: "Uh, a hangnail."

Reporter: Really?

Kaepernick: "Yes."

Reporter: So it hasn't impacted you?

Kaepernick: "No."

Reporter: Just hurts?

Kaepernick: "Little bit."

Reporter: What toe?

Kaepernick: "Uh, pinky toe."

Reporter: Right or left foot?

Kaepernick: "Both."

Reporter: That's amazing.


Maybe it was the worst pair of hangnails in the history of sports. Or, maybe it's just Colin/Harbaugh being Colin/Harbaugh. I'm still inclined to think it had more to do with scheme/coaching.

Ha!! Harbaugh has trained Kaepernick well, but it is still an interesting question. I mean even after the Packers game Kaepernick ran quite a bit against the Seahawks, but everything changed after that. So I do still think rudyZ may be right about his injury.
