They went from 29th in points scored to 2nd in points scored, I'd say that's progress. He did well, you can keep up your weird need to deflect all the attention on to Kaepernick to defend your Alex Smith fetish, but people know the truth. Seattle has superior offensive playcalling, that part isn't even debatable anymore, they take guys off the scrap heap and find a way to make them serviceable players, the 49ers offense struggles to utilize anyone who is slightly under Pro-Bowl caliber talent.
This. All our best players were quality before this coaching staff got their hands on them. Gore, Crabtree, Davis, Boldin. These guys were always productive. All of our young developmental talent on offense has underachieved, often not even placed in positions where they can succeed or play to their strengths.
Now look at the defense. Quality positional coaches everywhere. Tomsula, Leavitt, Donnatell. There are numerous young defensive players who have grown rapidly under their direction.
