Originally posted by Willisfn4life:Something else to consider is that was Kaepernicks first time playing in their stadium. You couldn't hear five feet in front of you there. There isn't a young quarterback in the league equiped to deal with that on their first visit. Kaepernick really seemed to learn from that experience. As good as he had been playing going into that game, he got even better after it. The playoffs proved that. I think you will see a far different result this season. We may not win in their house, but no way do we get manhandled like that again.
Oh I agree totally. It wasn't just that Kaep had trouble there, it is that THEY all have trouble there. I hate that the only way I can see Niner games live is to do it in that stadium. I was just pointing out that over the years that I have been attending that annual game, that they just don't squeak by their wins, the Chickens just destroy us there. We either win a close one or they take it too is. That last game was different in that it was the first time we were good at the same time as the chickens and I was expecting a close win, especially after riding that confidence from the NE game. It wasn't on Kaep IMHO, it was on the staff who decided to open the game up throwing when clearly it was important to NOT give their offense that kind of time. In the wins we have there, the crowd was just as noisy. We took ourselves out of the game by not playing to our strengths. I think Kaep will play much better there next time, but they cannot be toying around. We need to see more Gore and less Kaep. I swear, that first deep pass just had me flaming. I think we did it to try and shut them up, but they won't quit whether we score quick or not. Maybe for that play, but the next huddle, they will turn it up like it never happened.
One of these days, we are just going to pound them so far back that I will FINALLY get to witness the noise drop, but we are either close or they are killing us and it just makes them even louder. I literally wore earplugs last time. It is so noisy that all you can hear is distortion. I don't know how anyone operates there. Man I want to beat that team so bad there. The Silence of the Seahawks is my favorite movie and I have seen it a few times, always while the place is emptying. I love hanging around and chest bumping random Niner fans on those rare wins there. Priceless!
