So what will new coach Jim Tomsula have Kaepernick do? Based on Tomsulas introductory press conference, it sounds like Kaepernick will be doing plenty. Im excited about the possibilities, the things we can do with Colin Kaepernick, how we can help him keep growing, Tomsula said. Lets not act like .
When it comes to the expanded skill set of quarterback Colin Kaepernick, it seems that the team in the past two years has opted to shy away from taking full advantage of his running ability until the postseason. During the regular season, the focus has seemed to be developing him as a pocket passer — a process that at times has been more than a little bumpy.
Responsible for getting the most out of Kaepernick will be the team’s offensive coordinator and quarterback coach. Who have not yet been hired. But it’s clear based on the things Tomsula said Thursday that, under the year-to-year contract Kaepernick signed with the 49ers, the new coach is committed to Tomsula at least for the next year.
Given the overall circumstances of the past couple of weeks, the fans probably aren’t very excited. And there’s a chance it will be a while until they feel that way again.

Kaepernick is well below average, currently, with little to no hope of ever getting better. At that age, you’re either Andrew Luck or you will never be. Read more…
