Was this all doubling as a motivational

The attention level directed atColin Kaepernick reached astronomical heights when he took the field in San Diego on Thursday night for his final preseason audition, hoping to win a starting job and avoid getting cut.This wasattention Kaepernick Kyle Juszczyk Jersey willingly brought on himself, in the middle of the most challenging and tenuous stage of his profe sional career.So as Kaepernick surgically carved up the Chargers defense in his opening drive, looking like the dynamic force we hadnt see in a couple years, it made at least this writer wonder:Did this whole inflammatory public protest double as a shrewd, self-motivational ploy?MORE: Worst of bad Kaepernick takesWhile Kaepernicks twitter handle has been heavily dosed with social and political overtones as far back as July, why did he wait until Week 3 of preseason the first week in which he was actually playing to up the ante? Maybe that was just the perfect time for a performance enhancer.Did Kaepernick secretly know the limelight hed create and ire hed draw would fuel his competitive fire enough to perform at the nece sary level to earn a QB job? If you examine how he'sperformed throughout his career in situations that can be cla sified as more adverse or prominent, it couldnt have hurt.Humor this as a legitimate idea for a minute.In six career playoff games, the 28-year-old has averaged 84.5 rushing yards, up about 52 yards per game from his regular season output. And his pa sing yards rise from 175 per game in Colin Kaepernick Jersey the regular season to 229 in the playoffs. For those counting at home, that'sa 105 total yard increase when its win or go home. This includes Kaepernicks lone Super Bowl performance, in whichhe threw for 302 yards and a TD while rushing for 62 yards and a score.Kaepernick has accounted for nine more touchdowns in his career on the road than at home, in three fewer road games.He has more road playoff wins (3) than every other 49ers QB combined in the franchises history. (JoeMontanta and Steve Young were 1-6 combined in playoff road games.)MORE: Kaepernick already among most hated players everIn games decided by a final margin of seven or le s points, Kaepernick has a 26-6 TD-INT ratio and a 94.3 pa ser rating.That's compared to 15-12 with a 77.7 pa ser rating in an equal sample size of games decided by 15 points or more. Additionally, Kaepernicks average of 19.5 yards per completion in what data source Inside Edge cla sifies as close and late situationsranked first among 36 qualified QBs in the NFL last season.All in all, numbers suggest Kaepernick is typically more productive when the stakes are raised.So, with the future of his NFL career po sibly on the line and talk of Solomon Thomas Jersey his decline reaching a fever pitch, maybe Kaepernick decided to raise the stakes.Get a little boost of adrenaline while also addre sing an i sue he felt strongly about.You could argue that, despite the game not being televised nationally, Kaepernick had as much focus on him for his first offensive series Thursday than hes had for any series in his career.With the San Diego crowd relentle sly booing him the entire time, he orchestrated a vintage, 16-play, 85-yard touchdown drive Jaquiski Tartt Jersey while completing 6of8 pa ses for 58 yards and rushing for 30 more. He was decisive, accurate and fast, resembling the guy who earned a $114 million contract in 2014.IYER: Why 49ers have to keep KaepernickHis performance Thursday might have some of the 95 percent of front office execs who reportedly had the F that guy stance, now saying F, that guy looked like he could win some games" ...and the other five percent getting the confirmation they needed to scoop him up if he gets cut.SomaybeKaepernick knows himself better than anyone. And while it didn't result in him in starting Week 1, maybe heknew what advantage he needed to help his career at a critical point. If anything, his jersey sales are spiking. Maybe despite all the intense criticism of his intelligence over the couple past weeks, he's actually much smarter than people think. Maybe.
