no one has run it better in the playoffs than the San Francisco 49ers' Colin Kaepernick.
On Sunday, he'll face an Atlanta Falcons defense that has really struggled against mobile quarterbacks this season. Let's take a deeper look at Kaepernick's plan of attack against the Falcons and how they will try to stop him.
No team in the NFL uses more varied personnel groupings than San Francisco. It loves to use "heavy" formations with multiple tight ends, unbalanced looks and even defensive linemen as blockers to set up the run game. That is when Kaepernick becomes most dangerous thanks to his ability to run, either off designed scrambles or with the pistol/read-option.
Running back Frank Gore has become much more comfortable in this set in recent weeks after struggling with it early in the season. This makes those one-back sets very productive, where Kaepernick can either give the ball to Gore inside or keep the ball around the edge based on if the defensive end and/or outside linebacker crashes inside.
