Inconsistency has been part of the Kaepernick experience since his magical late-season run in 2012, but 49ers offensive coordinator Greg Roman believes his quarterback has made important gains in key areas.
"I think at times he's playing better than he's ever played, without question," Roman said, according to CSN Bay Area. "I think there is a play here and a play there that he'd like to have back. But I think he's commanding the offense extremely well.
"And I definitely think he's moving through his progressions in a good way. He's making some clutch throws, too."
The "good" Kaepernick was on full display during San Francisco's game-winning 75-yard drive against the Redskins on Sunday. Kaepernick went 4 of 4 for 55 yards during the march.
"That last drive, that ball he got in there to Anquan (Boldin), that was just a great throw and catch," Roman said, referring to Boldin's 29-yard reception. "You don't see those. You look around and keep looking, but not a lot of guys can put that ball in there in that situation. It was a great play."
