Watching old Stanford games, you saw Luck in the traditional WCO, but also in plenty of pistol formations/read-option plays...Harbaugh was constantly mixing things up even before he came here, so it's more than just a gimmick or JH trying to make Kap more comfortable. I really believe that's where this offense is going, a true mix of power WC, pistol read-option and spread formations with multiple WRs/TEs.

JH's thinking is that the more you make a D prepare for different formations, the less effective their preparation will be.

Harbaugh is like an artist as coach. He will use whatever works given the players abilities on the team. Was listening to NFLN and one of my favorite pundits, Warren Sapp, mentioned coaches trying to force players into schemes that did not highlight their strengths. He thought it was very counter productive. I agree and believe great coaches can morph their schemes around the players talent--for the most part.

Totally agree that JH will never relent from overwhelming the opposition with multiple sets and movement...yeah!

Agree. I love our coaching staff and what they are doing and continuing to do with our team.

So this is interesting....

http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/2012/08/13/rex-ryan-was-is-interested-in-colin-kaerp/

The 49ers have their own version of Tim Tebow, only better. His name is Colin Kaepernick.

Two nights ago, Kaepernick bolted 78 yards for a touchdown on a simple Tebow-style shotgun read option. The former Nevada quarterback faked a handoff to LaMichael James, the defensive end crashed inside to clog the hole, and Kaepernick darted through the spot where the defensive end had been.

Just like Tebow.

On Sunday, Jets coach Rex Ryan danced dangerously close to the tampering line by making it known, in unsolicited fashion, that Ryan was interested in drafting Kaepernick in 2011.

"Again, some people think the Wildcat has come and gone. No, it hasn't. If anything, it's just the opposite. I saw the kid from San Francisco, Kaepernick," Ryan said, via comments distributed by the team. "He runs a 4.4 or something. I was really intrigued by him when he came out because I thought we were going to lose Brad. [The 49ers] drafted him before we could, but I was interested in him. He went for a 70-yard touchdown run the other day. You're seeing these guys and it's hard to defend some of that stuff. When you have the ability to throw, as well as run, it makes it tough."

It's unclear whether Ryan was just riffing, or whether he was sending messages to one or more people.

To Mark Sanchez, possibly: "Don't get too upset about the fact that we traded for Tebow. We thought about drafting last year a guy who runs faster and throws more accurately than him."

To Tim Tebow, possibly: "It would be a good idea run faster and throw more accurately."

To 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh, possibly: "If you're really all in with Alex Smith, why not give us a chance at taking Kaepernick off your hands?"

To Colin Kaepernick, possibly: "If you don't like being stuck behind Smith, why not ask to be traded to the Jets?"

To the rest of the league, possibly: "Go ahead and assume that the Wildcat is dead."

Regardless, chances are it wasn't an accident that Rex publicly lamented the fact that the 49ers got Kaepernick in the second round of the 2011 draft before the Jets could get a crack at him.

Especially since the Jets didn't even have a second-round pick in 2011.

i had a good laugh at this. What is Rex's agenda? The quotes were distributed by the TEAM so its not like it was him spouting off on a radio show. This is something that the Jets FO and/or marketing okayed for release. Hard to say if it qualifies for tampering as PFT hints but it does make me wonder if the Jets were trying to trade back into second to get him.
I don't trust Rex and the Jets....weren't they b***hing at us a couple of years ago...talking s**t when they knew they didn't have to play us that year. Can't wait to play them again. I remember when they came to San Francisco and thought it would be a cake walk. I registered at their Jets Landing strip forum, and warned them don't take our 9ers and Shaun Hill lightly...little did they listen, and they were piiiissed. I didn't go back to the thread I started to gloat however... I usually don't.

This is not entirely accurate. Ryan's statements were taken from his press conference today at training camp. The New York Jets distributed the transcript of said press conference to the press, like every team does for every press conference.

Not even close to tampering by the way. Saying you liked a player on draft day is not tampering.

Lol if Harbaugh said Scott Tolzien was emerging as the #2 everyone would be going nuts in here, but because he said it about Kaep...*crickets*

I'm glad he's 'emerging'. It was always going to be a 3 year project for Kaep, and he's on pace. We got lucky without really requiring him to take any meaningful snaps. Maybe we start integrating him little by little this year, and next year we see where we are.

And it looks like at least the Jets are fans of Kaep, so if he doesn't factor into the long-term plans, he will have good trade value.

Rewatched the game an realized the throw that I thought should've been picked off easy, was actually not as close to being an int as I thought.

Demps can only get one hand on it and barely does.
Colin Kaepernick is a huge Pedro Martinez fan
