Until the Bears game, I thot Kap had terrific talent but wasn't NFL ready yet. Now I wonder how he will handle the BIG RUSH which we saw in the Vikes, Giants and Rams game. In the past, when substituting, Kap has looked like a deer in the headlights, with 3, 4 or 5 300 pounders in his grill. Bears played straight up, vanilla D, virtually no blitzing (maybe a couple plays), and got waxed. I would like to have seen how CK handles the BIG RUSH now. He is learning on the sideline and with all his talent seems NFL ready...except, against the BIG RUSH. And until we see how he does there, we WILL NOT know just how good he is.
Right now I am hoping for alex to get well upstairs, which will make us the only team in the NFL with two very good starting QBs. That is a prescription for SB win, especially when now I am convinced Coach Harbaugh called 3 lousy games with not all his brain cells working. After being cardioverted, he seems his same old fantastic self.. a big cut above all other NFL coaches. We also , for the record, have the great running game, with not just one but 2 starting RBs, the best front 7 on the planet, a great OL, tons of talent at WR, great TEs, great Punter, ok PR, and an improving PK. If we aren't in the SB and win convincingly, I will be amazed. Now that Coach is back and healthy upstairs, I look for us to run the table thru Feb of 2013. Pats, Saints and SEA will all be cut nutters....but we win. Realistically, we should lose one of those, but I don't think so. In the ones with the BIG RUSH, that is where you will find out if Kap is ready now for the big time.
