49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick will almost certainly be asked 100 million times about his ability as a running quarterback, but 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh would like everyone to remember that Kaep isn't just "a read-option quarterback., Will Brinson of CBS Sports reports.
First of all, I wouldn't categorize Colin as a read-option quarterback, for starters," Harbaugh said at his introductory press conference Sunday. "Then, to answer your question, all of those things would be possibilities. We'd love for our opponent to consider them all. Colin is extremely talented at the read-option, he's extremely talented throwing the football as well. There are a lot of options we could go."
Kaepernick himself believes that there's "too much focus" on his play at quarterback.
"I think people have put too much focus on me. I don't think they realize the other weapons we have on this team," Kaepernick said Sunday. "I don't think they realize the great offensive line that we have. There are a lot of other parts on this team that do great things to make it easy for me to go out there."
