Kaepernick, 49ers, Lack Maturity

There is no denying how great of a job Jim Harbaugh has done in turning around a San Francisco 49ers organization that was in turmoil. Three straight NFC championship games is nothing short of phenomenal. However, over his tenure, Harbaugh and the 49ers continue to make the same types of mistakes.
