San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick is underperforming in his first full season as a starter in the NFL. The 49ers offense is averaging 173.5 yards through the air, that mark is the worst in the NFL. Kaepernick is getting some support from his opponent this week.

“I don’t see any indication of him struggling,” Rams coach Jeff Fisher said Friday, via Pro Football Talk.  “I don’t know where that’s coming from.  He’s throwing touchdown passes and running around just like he did last year.  So, I think any time you lose a game or two all the focus goes to the quarterback, but he’s not the reason that they lost football games.  So, they’re very efficient and he’s a very talented quarterback.”

The fourth ranked run offense is what is carrying the load for the 49ers. The veteran Frank Gore is leading the way with 779 yards on 188 carries and seven touchdowns. Fisher had praise for Gore as well.

“(He’s) still talented,” Fisher said, via the team’s website.. “He’s not getting the carries right now. He’s probably hoping to get more. I think they’ve gone, in the last four games, like 19, 18, 13, 13. They’re very effective in the running game and he’s still got a lot of ability.”
