Word.

It will be interesting to see what happens if he is cleared before sunday since CK's been gettin the first team reps.

Agree. The Saints defense gave up 400+ yards to the Raiders offense. We should be able to move the ball and control the clock all game to keep Brees off the field.

Yeah boy. It would be nice to get brees on his back. This is the game for the base line to step up. We need to make sproles pay too.

It would be BIZARRE, because Alex wouldn't have had any first-team reps, and is one of those guys who needs to have his practice reps, and get into rhythm.
I think Alex got most of the first team reps last week and CK still started.

It worked out well because Kaepernick played exceptionally, but I'm sure the coaches would tell you that that is NOT the way they want to do things.

Or cc, Harbaugh really plays with everyone and starts them both. AS under center pitches to CK on a sweep. CK pulls up and passes to Moss on a streak pattern.

Oh I completely agree. Makes sense that the dude that gets the first team reps for the week plays.

I think it happened that way because the staff thought Alex would be cleared before the game.
This saints d is so slow. Kaep is a really bad matchup for them! Anyone see sam bradford catch thier safety? Kaeps first 100 yard rushing game me thinks.

Exactly. I mean, last week, they thought Alex would be cleared and gave him all the first-team reps. This week, Kaepernick did well, and Alex is still not cleared early in the week, so give Kaepernick the first-team reps. They didn't want the starting QB to not be fully prepared two weeks in a row.

It's not something that deserves huge news *yet.*
If next week, the team goes with Kaepernick instead of a fully healthy Alex, then THAT is news.

On Monday they indicated that Colin got most of the reps the last two days of practice. Those are most important because that is when they focus on the game plan.

Thats my biggest concern. As great as our defense was last week, we're facing a totally different offense with Brees. Last year we barely beat them in our house and this time we're in the Superdome but teams have had success this season. We'll need to score fast and as much as we can. Our defense will just have to keep the scoring to a minimum as much as they can.

The OLine will need to play as great as they did last week if we are going to win.

Agree. Really hope our defense comes to play.
