And why defer the wins statement to other people didn't give him credit ? if Flacco was throwing INTs like you are claiming (Romo'esq) then Baltimore wouldn't have been making the playoffs and winning a SB (those Fkrs)
I give QBs credit on SB wins on how much they are involved in that game. Flacco won that game by throwing the ball...Balt couldn't run against us..unlike a Russell wilson who was just there and pretty much watched the rest of his team do the work.
Kaep be a more game QB ?
Kaep in every Playoff game he has played in his short career (6 Games) has won or lost it on the last play of the game. Every Playoff win that he has...he took control and won that game..not our defense or what ever. The Games he lost which we really didn't lose that bad and had chances to win..he made mistakes...but hey he doesn't even have two full seasons at the starting position.
Tongue in cheek regarding the "Dream Team" sorry I didn't make that more clear. Just shows how ratings can be so misdirected. They did have a very good group of players, however, and KC was very bad the year before. The Eagles were twice as good...four wins!
Flacco saved his best game for the Super Bowl, which is why I mentioned not knowing how much to credit that toward his overall rating. It certainly elevates him above his normal game but how much? The answer will be given at the end of his career. During the season he had 22 TDs and 10 Ints, No interceptions in the playoffs is Montana-esque.
Some players make the last play, some don't. How much is play calling? How much are team mates? How much is officiating? The catch was a fantastic play call, a fantastic catch, and a fantastic throw. The interception in Seattle was a bad play call, a mediocre attempt by the reciever (should have cleared the DB with a hand on his shoulder as refs weren't calling close at the end of the game) and a bad pass with no air under the ball...one of my criticisms of Kaepernick as a young, strong armed QB. If you have ever heard interviews about the catch, it was a play they had practiced repeatedly but not used, so a lot had to do with familiarity. The pass attempt to Crabtree seemed almost desperate...and predetermined in the QBs mind.
I happen to love Kaepernick, but realize his inexperience will limit him until he develops a bit more touch and has his recievers for a few years. I certainly don't blame him for the losses, just one factor and the coaches bear most of the blame. CK made some plays that no one else could, so his game was mostly fantastic.
