Kaepernick didn't take half the shots that Vick did last night, some of them were self-inflicted as after ALL this time, that moron still hasn't figured out that its unwise for a 210 pound quarterback to run right into a 250 pound linebacker charging at him with a full head of steam. If Vick is still healthy by Week 8, I'll be absolutely amazed.
man you guys are so parochial.
I am not saying anything about Vick. I could give a s**t less about Vick. Is he injury prone? Yes. Will he last the season? Nothing to indicate why he would.
I am discussing this "new" offense and is it sustainable. Kelly brought something new last night that flashed explosiveness. He will obviously need the right folks to run it. But it looks like it will have success, players will want to come there, etc. Teams will always figure out ways to stop it. The good coaches find ways to adjust. Kelly did that at Oregon.
[waits for another vick will be injured post...]
All offenses need the right personnel to run it. What you're failing to acknowledge is the fact that the NFL is not college football and the tempo of this offense is going to get it's players hurt. You seem to think that has nothing to do with whether or not the offense is sustainable, but no offense is sustainable when it's key components are being injured because of the style of play. In theory, you're right, if any scrub from nowhere could step in and run the offense the way the starters do, then sure, it's sustainable. But is that the case? Highly unlikely.
Again, no offense is sustainable when it's key components are constantly hurt due to the style they are forced to run. It's not about Vick. If you think the next guy can step in and run it as well as the first guy, then I don't know what to say except if the next guy could do it as well as the 1st, he wouldn't be the next guy in the 1st place.
