All QBs have their strengths and weaknesses. It's okay to create game plan if you the 49ers to accentuate that and your opponent to exploit weaknesses. I guess what tells us if the 49ers will get to the SB is how quickly they counter an opponent's strategy to exploit any QB's (read offense's) weakness. That's not hate.
The thing I would like a discussion on is that our weakest aspect of the team was the passing game. Now I feel it is our 2nd weakest aspect behind special teams.
However, many claims were made about which part of the passing game was weak: Blocking, Catching, Passing? Of course, those can be narrowed down further to Blocking vs blitzes, 7-step drops, short passes, deep passes, big plays, YAC, WR attacking balls,...
As much as I defend the WR's and believe they do have the ability to make big plays, they still need to prove this for more than one game. Although, I will say Randy Moss and Mario Manningham are already proven. Crabtree definitely appears as if he's finally getting a chance to show what he can do.
