Pay per head services saw that in an interview with USA Today Sports, Montana gave Kaepernick some advice, as the player is on the edge of leading San Francisco to their second straight Super Bowl appearance.
“I like his mobility and that he’s getting the ball downfield,” Montana told the newspaper. “But sometimes he needs to be more accurate in the pocket with pressure.
“The game is changing. Nobody wants to throw with pressure anymore. But the guys who can win in this league are the ones who can make throws from the pocket.”
Price per head sportsbooks know that during the 1980’s, Montana, considered by many to be one of the best quarterbacks in the history of the league, is the only player to win three Super Bowl MVPs, and led the 49ers to four Super Bowl titles. During his Hall of Fame career, the former player was known to buy time in the pocket with his footwork while also doing an excellent job at sprint-out passes in the West Coast offense.
Kaepernick, whose 49ers take on the Seahawks in the NFC Championship Game on Sunday, was known more for his elusiveness as a runner during his young career. Pay per head services saw that this season, the player ranked third among quarterbacks with 92 rushes, behind Cam Newton (111) and Russell Wilson (96).
That led Montana and many price per head sportsbooks to believe that Kaepernick’s game won’t be completed until he’s able to find consistency from the pocket.
“Kaepernick still needs to get better at that,” Montana said. “He’ll look and then he’s off and running. I still think the thing is the pocket and making those tight throws from the pocket.”
Regarding tight throws, Montana said that Kaepernick needs to have improved accuracy, and pay per head services also believe that the player should check on that.
“He’ll make some,” he said, “but a lot of times guys are wide open and he misses them.”
