Also, yes, congrats on him setting the new running yards record in a game. It was also the biggest failure in a playoff game by Green Bay in arguably the history of the franchise, and Dom Capers was exposed big-time. I think the memo he left was misinterpreted by the Green Bay defense as "Avoid looking at the QB, and stay as far away from him as possible"; because that's what it looked like on TV. The holes they left for him to run through were absolutely pathetic. No excuse for it. Kaepernick took full advantage; but let's not pretend that there wasn't also a massive game-long failure by the Green Bay defense, yes?
Seriously, though. Provide some unbiased evidence for your assertions, please.
Articles I hand-picked? Good one. I know you want it to be that. Go Google recently written top QB lists, ignore any by SF/Seattle-area sources, and see what you get. 90% of people ranking Wilson above Kaepernick, that's what; but they're all wrong, right?
Small sample size for both. It's commonly accepted that you need 3 full years to properly evaluate long-term capability of a QB. I'd say they're a wash right now as far as evaluation capability goes; yes, Wilson has started more games, but he had very little training camp and pre-season prep due to QB competition, and Kaepernick rode the pine for a full year-and-a-half before becoming the starter. For all intents and purposes, I'd call that approximately equal. Wilson got more on-field experience, Kaepernick got significantly more mental preparation time. Bottom line, we'll be able to evaluate these two at the end of next season a LOT more accurately than we can right now.
Yes, Green Bay Failed..... Let's see, 49ers went to GB and beat them. GB goes to the house of horrors (I say this with respect because it is a house of horrors for opposing teams), the Seahawks, and Seattle is given the game by the refs at the end of the game. GB comes to the niners in the playoffs and SanFran schools GB again. Now, I take offense by you saying it was GB getting exposed? Why wasn't Wilson running all over GB during the game at Seattle? Why didn't Seattle blow GB out, especially at home? I wish the 49ers would have been gifted a game like that, like the SB Game! Why did Seattle, at home, squeek out a victory against New England? The 49ers won one hell of a game against NE on the road.
I am not saying Kap's better or Wilson's better, or 49ers WILL be better this season, or seattle will be better this season, what I am asking is why do you and so many so called experts say that Wilson's better, and the that Seattle's off season was better so they will be better and are ranked number 1?
If I look at the body of work from 2012 from Kap/Wilson, 49ers/Hawks, I would say the niners are still the team to beat. 49ers are Really Good at home, and they are a better road team then Seattle, and say both QB's keep progressing, then, I just don't see how anyone could say that the Hawks passed the 49ers, especially since the niners have kept the same coaching and the niners still have a better record, 3-1 against Seattle with Harbaugh as coach?
