"What most people don't realize is the last few plays weren't the problem," Kaepernick told Comcast SportsNet Bay Area on Thursday. "It was the first half. We didn't execute in the first half like we should have. So we shouldn't have been in that situation."
He's right. The 49ers were down 28-6 before they touched the ball in the second half. In the first half, the 49ers had two three and outs. They had a fumble and an interception. They had two longer drives that stalled, and the 49ers settled for field goals. The 49ers had 182 yards at halftime, but only six points. That's not the efficient 49ers offense we grew used to.
