The 49ers have a Tim Tebow of their own, and he made some big plays against the Jets today.
Colin Kaepernick had two rushes for 24 yards and a TD while the game was close in the first half, and the 49ers won 34-0
We’ve been waiting all year to see the Jets unleash Tebow with a package full of run-pass option and zone read plays. We thought we might finally see it today, but it turns out the 49ers were the ones who’ve been quietly building some creative plays for their versatile back-up QB.
Here’s the thing: the Niners aren’t just throwing Kaepernick out there are having him run QB draws up the middle like the Jets have done with Tebow.
They’re running read plays that have a lot of pre-snap motion and a variety of options. They’re confusing the defence, then giving Kaepernick a variety of different possibilities on every play This is how the Jets should be using Tebow, not in the ridiculously over-simplified way they’ve used him so far this year:
Another read option that the Jets have yet to show with Tebow.
