I know there are 2 sides to this debate and many angles. We all love the 49ers and feel passionately about the direction the team should go in. Lets just try to keep this civil and remember we are all 9er fans. Now to the debate. I think for a lot of us it feels like the team is at a crossroads. We have a long break before monday night football and a bye week coming. It seems like if a change is going to be made it will have to be done in these precious weeks. I think even if you are a smith fan you have to be disapointed in his production. I guess the biggest question is can we get more from kaep and still keep turnovers low? I think we can! We run most of the time anyway and kaep is more dynamic at that. We really need to be able to push the ball downfield in our playaction game. Gore and the running backs can only take us so far. Make the change now!
Some please relieve us of this 5-2 crossroads!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
and of course the teams record is brought up over and over again...and that will happen as the season goes on, even if our offense continues to look inconsistent but we find a way to beat teams....especially teams who don't put us in situations where we might have to rely on our passing offense.
this happened the whole season last year, as week after week I brought up our 3rd down conversion problems....had to hear the same stuff..."but we winning"..."don't worry we'll sort it out as the season gets going, its early and it was a short offseason"...."oh don't worry come playoff time we'll be fine, we are hiding plays" "oh what? you mean we had 5 turnovers but we couldn't put the Saints away? SO WHAT DUDE WE WON!!! ALEX HAS ARRIVED HIS GREATEST GAME EVA!!!!" the next week...horrible on 3rd down passing...horrible on connecting to WRs....."OMG WE NEED NEW WRS!
"...even though in the crucial moments late in the game, the passes were skipping to our WR's feet.
so yeah expect the same stuff as the season goes on...people will continue to bring up our record, until our issues...which we apparently haven't sorted out, rare its ungly head again..which would most likely be in the playoffs.
we are not getting the turnovers like we were last year.....our special teams are struggling alittle bit. So go ahead and joke about the "over reaction".
did some folks really expect that teams wouldn't adjust to us this year? It seems like we haven't really improved on passing offense, execution wise.
