To be honest.....
I don't know. I'm trying to keep a positive mind about this.
Any time the real Alex rears his head though.....
I think you're reading too much into it.
Although, maybe it's a little kick in the pants message to Alex Smith. That's always possible.
You've also got to remember that Alex is now missing two of his front line receivers in Morgan and Edwards.
Now, that doesn't explain away his overthrowing problem from yesterday. But to say it isn't playing some sort of a role would be just as wrong.
Still, as the season moves on? I bet we see more Kaep.
Fine with me
Colin Cowherd (an idiot, I know) went into great detail this morning about how Jason Garrett ran three straight running plays on Dallas' last offensive drive yesterday as part of an effort to protect Tony Romo, who's confidence has been beaten senseless this season. Not risking exposing Romo to another game-losing interception, yadda yadda.
Yet, I got that same feeling yesterday when Harbaugh elected to go for that final field goal, instead of throwing for a first down to run out the clock, or even a touchdown to finish the game. As though he felt he got really really lucky putting the game in Alex's hands on the Walker TD, but there was no way he was going to risk doing that again.
Again, keeping my fingers crossed tight this works out. It will be an interesting two weeks of discussion though. Plenty of second thoughts to be expressed all over the media.
