Check out what Jim Harbaugh said about the 49ers at a recent press conference.
Here’s a transcript of the relevant part of the video: “We train our quarterbacks to throw to people that aren’t covered, even if it’s a running play. I was watching an NFL game where they didn’t cover a receiver and the quarterback handed it off, and got maligned by scribes and pundits and so-called experts for not throwing it to him.”
The quarterback Harbaugh was referring to was Colin Kaepernick, who handed the ball off to Mike Davis instead of throwing the ball to an uncovered Torrey Smith against the St. Louis Rams Week 8. Harbaugh essentially said don’t blame Kaepernick — blame Jim Tomsula and his coaching staff. They didn’t train Kaepernick properly.
