SANTA CLARA — I asked Jim Harbaugh Wednesday how he’s tailoring his offense to Colin Kaepernick. Here’s what Harbaugh said.
ME: You’ve said QB Colin Kaepernick has special skills which are unique and you’ve also said you haven’t dramatically changed the offense. I’m just curious, why wouldn’t you significantly alter the offense to accommodate his special skills?
HARBAUGH: “I wouldn’t get too tied up with words, dramatic or significant. There are definitely things that we’re doing that tailor the offense to his skillset.”
ME: How have you tailored the offense to Kaepernick’s skillset? Is that where the diamond formation comes in?
HARBAUGH: “It’s one formation that was in before, when Alex was playing as well. There have been some plays, just some plays, some scheme that Alex doesn’t…er…they both do a good job with, but Kap in particular.”
