There's some people I wish would just leave, at this point, they seem to be happily rooting for the 49ers to crash and burn while spending more time in the Chiefs thread praising their QB crush. They'd rather see the 49ers crash and burn with Kaepernick so they could point their fingers and say "HAH, YOU WERE WRONG" with a typical 5 year old's mentality.
It's already a given that they'll try to make every issue with the 49ers that of Kaepernick's and nobody elses. I supported Alex when he was a QB here, I support Kaepernick now, and what I'm seeing are some of the same exact issues when it comes to playcalling, I'm seeing a regression of the offense, realistically, this is Jimmy Raye football right now with perhaps a little more creativity in the running game and less so in the passing game. Cohn made some great points, he's not saying anything that a lot of others haven't been saying, Kawakami as well addressed issues with the playcalling and why when Kaepernick starts to scramble, none of the WR's break off their routes and get open for him the way the WR's in Seattle do.
People can point the finger at Kaepernick all they want, he's not the one drawing up the crap gameplans and the largely inappropriate playcalling that as Cohn said suggests a stubborn, almost-Singletary like mentality on the part of the Harbaugh to "come and stop us if you can", and largely, good defenses are stopping it and there's no adjustments being made.
It has taken the coaching staff this long to utilize more screen plays, crossing patterns, bootlegs etc........it's almost like Harbaugh has been avoiding using various WCO concepts, that he wants to stubbornly show that "Bo ball" from the 1980s can get it done in the NFL in 2013.
