Funny, this one started almost identically to the Baltimore game.

SF gets the opening kickoff. Turnover (pick six). 7-0 Pack. SF drives to make it 7-7. With 9:00 left GB's offense takes the field for the first time in a 7-7 tie.

Not identical, but close. Now, let's have 2 OT's...lol.

did you see him on the previous play? He steps up into the pocket, finds himself on his OLman's back, he squats as if to go fetal, then turns around & looks backwards....

then gets out of the pocket & throws it away.

During draft time, I was saying this guy has very good upside.

His throwing mechanics was out of whack sometimes because he was also a pitcher.

He threw a 92 mph fastball in high school.

All they need to do with him was to help him work on his mechanics, otherwise, he's a good and smart QB.

You don't have to be 6'5"/230... Just be really quick, have keen pocket awareness, and have a strong arm... RGIII isn't all that big.

I'm in the same camp. Right now Harbaugh looks like a genius for making the switch. No way I see A. Smith in a S.F. uni next season. Heard some rumblings about him ending up in Buffalo next season. Would certainly be an upgrade to Fitzpatrick.

My son and God-son are die hard 9ers and are there as we speak. We have had our discussions especially since I thought Smith did nothing to lose his job. They felt the decision was a good one thinking immediate and long term, and at this point I must agree.

Back when he made the call, I said it was a mistake.

This is why I don't coach for a living. Obviously.

Russell Wilson and Kapernicky are, possibly, the future prototype of NFL QBs. Vince Young was also a playmaker, but he had no passing skills and was a head case.

Cautionary tales though: Vick's body is taking a body, so whatever passing skills he had are now limited because of his inability to simply stay on the field and out of danger. RGIII is also suffering from his own brand of playmaking ability.

Guys who can run but know when to duck out of bounds, guys who run but know when to hit the turf and take a sack, etc., they can play awhile. Steve Young did it until he took a few too many nasty hits to the dome. Brees seems to be the best playmaking QB who knows when to hold 'em and when to fold 'em.

Wilson and Kaperninsky are going to have to really stay disciplined and continue to grow as passers. Maybe the defenses in the NFL figure these guys out next year. Maybe they don't.

But right now, when guys like Johnny Manziel (TAMU) account for over 500 yards of production, and when guys like Kapernaut account for over 400 yards of production, it makes you think that with then NFL rules so slanted toward protecting QBs.......why NOT take a chance on this type of QB? Makes a lot of sense to me.

Or use a Sloth-type pocket passer. Who gets injured on a simple QB sneak, or folds up under a 3-man pass rush with the nearest guy 3 yards from him.

Yep

Kaepernick is like Vick, except he is big enough to withstand the pounding and of course he has a brain.

I'm sure he could take a pounding steelb but the thing is, he's not even being touched. Did you see the designed run from mid field. He ran down the seem without anyone laying a finger on him. I'm sure he's taken a lick here-n-there but he's by no means taking a pounding.

Oh, and yeah, there's that brain thing goin' on too. :)
