if you we're head coach

Lean on your D ( like you would be otherwise) and running game and tell Kaep to get the ball away quick or take a sack (like will happen anyways).

Beat russel Wilson senseless and get Kaep ready for a playoff run.
cant say I disagree with you. I just think it wouldn't be fair to kaep to give him his first start with only a few days getting full time practice reps
If I were Coach, I would go back to what made this team successful last season - scheming our pass rush. The heart of our turn ratio was based on our D-line and LB forcing QB's into bad decisions. Eli wasn't under pressure and as a result, he picked us apart.

You start Kaep this week you can write off the season. I bet JH would lose the locker room making a personnel change like that.
1. Boone would have been starting at LT. Kilgore C or G/Looney starting at RG with Slowey still on the team as C.
2. More depth at OLB with a legit top pick
3. Fleener would be starting by now
4. Hunter would be the next Sproles with heavy game plans for him in both the run/pass game
5. Gore would not be allowed to disappear. Ever
6. Remind fans Kaep is just starting year 2 of 3 in the WCO...he's a long ways off and was horrendous this past Sunday. That said, I'd be teaching him how to play QB in the NFL and teach him how to use his athleticism for pocket-awareness, not the Wild-Kaep (maybe once in a while)
7. All 4 LBers would be well-versed in pass rushing and a big part of the game plan
8. Secondary would learn to play tight, physical up at the LOS esp. on 3rd downs
9. Goldson would be used closer to the LOS and even used to blitz more and disrupt/chuck TE's and WR's. He would be matched up against the more effective, taller TE's...no more Whitner (3rd MLB).
10. Would draft or bring in a prototypical WCO WR - big, tall, strong, excellent body control, etc.
11. Would implement a true WCO with a full array of slant and post patterns, crossing routes, RB/FB passing game, heavy TE use, RB/WR screens, etc.
12. Would implement a more dictacting 3-4, Dom Capers-like 3-4.
13. Heavy emphasis on game-planning; attacking weakness via the WCO and sticking with it until the prove they can stop it; attacking the OL with the LBers and CB/S blitzes.
14. Costanzo/Jones would be on the team, no doubt.
15. Would not have drafted James/Jenkins and tired of tiny little WR's.
16. And enough of the "package WR's" - need continuity and timing; staples of the WCO

Kaepernick sucks. He killed 5 drives yesterday, overthrew a 6'4 Moss who was WIDE OPEN 5 yards away from him. Almost took two sacks.. Guy is no good..I would honestly think of putting him in on special teams just so I don't have to look at his awkward motion on offense.

1 - disagree heavily
3 and 10 - moot until we see what Jenkins becomes
8 - Our secondary can and does play tight press coverage and does it well, our defense is amazing and damn near flawless (certainly more flawless than any other defense), I don't understand the complaints
12 - Again, if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Capers oversaw the worst defense in football last year.
15 - IMO it's totally unfair to say you regret drafting guys until you see what they can do. They might not be ready now but you gotta give them the benefit of the doubt at this point that down the road they'll be studs. Baalke/Harbaugh have shown that they deserve your trust.
16 - There has been more stability in our WR corps lately. It sure seems like Crabtree is a clear 1, Ham is a clear 2, and I have no problem with Williams and Moss kinda platooning the 3rd spot, they are sorta opposite style receivers and depending on the opponent and/or what we're trying to accomplish on a particular play, it could make sense to have either on the field

*definitely agree that Costanzo should still be on this team
Peyton Manning just brought his team back down by 24 points at halftime......if I was a head coach I'd pursue Peyton Manning...oh wait...

fumble recovery for a TD and a few INT's help the case....if Rogers got that INT the game might be different

we arent getting the lucky plays like we did last year
2 main things I would like to see/do if I were HC:

1. Cut Jacobs, promote one of our 2 OT's from our PS...we have no backup OT going into Thursday night's game as of now. But I don't care if we use the roster spot on me, you, or nobody at all, GET RID OF JACOBS.
2. On every 3rd and 8+, I'd have Gore stay in to block, 3 guys (often Crabtree, Manningham, and Vernon) running intermediate routes with the goal of picking up a 1st down, and 1 guy (often Moss, and certainly him if he's on the field) run a 9-route. If none of the intermediate routes are there, just tell Alex to heave it deep. Maybe the guy running the 9-route can somehow come down with it or at least draw a penalty, but even if it's intercepted, it was a long ass pass so it pretty much works like a punt anyways.

that's fine and all, but the game became a shootout, and old man Manning responded.

1.) Put Aldon back as a 3rd down pass rush specialist.
2.) Take more shots down the field to Moss and try to draw some PI calls.
3.) Stick with Alex and only play Kaep if were up big the rest of the season.
4.) Change my sweater

I disagree on your Alex assessment. As far as Gire? Who is he and I hope he is better then Alex Smith.

And start Clark Haggans? I think there's a decent chance we actually would be doing this if Haralson were healthy, but he's not.
