The San Francisco 49ers have the league's worst passing offense so far this season but still are in good shape for a playoff berth.

Despite that stat, 49ers head coach Jim Harbaugh says he can't understand why critics around the league are so hard on third-year quarterback Colin Kaepernick. San Francisco is 6-4 and 3.5 games back of the Seattle Seahawks in the NFC West.

Kaepernick has thrown for 1,802 yards with 11 touchdowns and seven interceptions and has an 81.8 quarterback rating through 10 games this season.

“I think he’s doing a heck of a job,” Harbaugh said, via 49ers.com. “I guess I’d be puzzled to why people would think that. What’s most important is what we see. I’m puzzled to why you or anybody else thinks that.”
