Colin Kaepernick needs to quickly rebound or the San Francisco 49ers are finished

Colin Kaepernick should be doing “The Humpty Dance” in the end zone.

Quarterback Colin Kaepernick struggled mightily in the 49ers’ 27-7 loss to the Indianapolis Colts Sunday at Candlestick Park.

With tight end Vernon Davis shelved due to a left hamstring strain, the 6-foot-5, 230 pound Kaepernick completed just 13 of 27 pass attempts for 150 yards with no touchdowns and one interception against Indianapolis.

“I’m frustrated with myself,” said Kaepernick, 25, who ESPN’s Ron Jaworski boldly stated in the summer could mature into one of the “greatest quarterbacks ever.”

Already trailing the Seattle Seahawks (3-0) by two games in the NFC West, Kaepernick has only thrown three scores, against four picks, for 689 yards over three contests.

Capable of finishing the 40-yard dash in 4.53 seconds, “Shock G’s” twin has also rushed 23 times for 129 yards.

Defenses have seemingly adjusted to Kaepernick’s unique style of play and the former Nevada star needs to improve his accuracy and overall abilities in the pocket.

Thankfully for Kaepernick, San Francisco acquired Anquan Boldin in March from the Baltimore Ravens for a six round pick in April’s draft.

An imposing physical specimen capable of overpowering defenders, the 6-foot-1, 220 pound Boldin has become Kaepernick’s favorite target and the standout wide receiver should continue to help the youngster develop.

Although facing pressure working in the shadows of Hall of Famers Joe Montana and Steve Young, a talent like Kaepernick shouldn’t remain “frustrated” on the gridiron for long.

Nevertheless, with Seattle taking control of the division in September, Colin Kaepernick must quickly return to being a true artist in “The Paris of the West.”
