Definitely agree about Brooks. The guy gets nowhere near the recognition he deserves this year. Until this week PFF even had him rated as a more disruptive pass rusher on the season than Aldon. Combine that with his knack for knocking down passes, and dominant tackling like our ILB's, and this guy is a star. Easy to see how he gets lost with the 3 other LB's though, because a lot of the work he does doesn't show up on the stat sheet.
Agreed! These are some intelligent fans...thank God for your guys!
Great work as always Marvin. Major props to Roman (who I've been hard on lately esp. in our losses and for the absence of creating plays for our playmakers such as VD the previous 4 games)...but he was a genius last night! Not only was VD the primary target 8 times, he got him in 1on1 matchups 7 of those times for 7 completions and he did it early and often and I felt the Bears had no answer for it and REALLY got both he and CK in a nice confidence-boosting rhythm. And as always, he was a genius in the run schemes. Great team win...hands down, the BEST I've seen our WR's off the LOS. I can not remember the last time I saw 4 WR's spread out and all 4 were open. It was a thing of beauty. I'm very proud of CK in particular..."cool as the other side of the pillow."

I can understand why you watched it twice, Marvin. And I agree with everything you write.
Maybe the Bears are a bit overrated. Maybe their division isn't as strong as in previous years. Chilo Rachal and Gabe Carmini are weak. And Jason Campbell just doesn't have it.
For the most part, CK got great pass protection, but he protected the ball well the one time he got blindly sacked. Much better than against the Rams. Most of his throws were to the outside and against a man defense. In the preseason his INTs were mostly throws over the middle into a zone D, something he didn't face last night. I hope Alex recovers soon, but I would like to see Kap next week in the dome.

Aldon, Kaep, Cully, Hunter, Miller... what a draft.
And I'm getting excited about our 2012 draft, both Jenkins and James really make sense with Kaep. Maybe Baalke actually does know what he's doing.
I think our future always centered around us getting a QB who can air it out (and play like a natural QB; which also explains the move on Manning), and rely upon speed; Kaep will probably inherit the best offense in the NFC next year (ala Aaron Rodgers in 2008), and will produce MVP numbers if all goes well.
I have never seen that before, they came out and started using timeouts when they were down 27-0. They also kept running the ball in the 4th quarter knowing they were down. The biggest surprise was when they jumped offsides to give us the first down because they didn't want the ball back, they would rather watch us kneal on it!
If this was a UFC fight it would be safe to say that we made the bears TAP OUT!

You must have been watching a different Rams game. What I saw was that Kaepernick was put in the game cold with a 7 point disadvantage, and while the last two drives in the first half ended in punts, as did the first of the second half. He then proceeded to lead drives ending in TD, TD and FG. Noting that the second TD put the 49ers ahead and the FG was a drive that started with 1:06 on the clock that enabled the 49ers to tie the game and force overtime. Note also that the first possession he lead in over time put the 49ers in place for a reasonable FG attempt.
Also keep in mind that since he was not expected to play he did not get first team snaps in preparation for that game, unlike this game where he got to practice with the first team offense and got to practice the game plan. Makes quite a difference.
