Of course they did. But, what if we would have went into the half 14-7, or even 21-7 due to an errant turnover? What about the nearly interception to Moss on the goalline? I mean I give the guy credit for his play, I even said he played well. But he also made some bad mistakes that in my opinion could have cost us the game if not for Ahmad Brooks completely flipping the momentum.
I'm not hating on the guy, but I feel I have valid points. Did he play great? I say no. He still understandably is making rookie mistakes. Did he play horrible? Not by any stretch. He played a legit game, he played well, but I read how many say he played amazing and to me he didn't.
agreed....his play was nothing spcial. alex would have had just as good a game or better probably.
you have a problem with dissenting analysis from your own? what i saw is a team that had a strong offensive game against a TERRIBLE defense. It was by far not a GREAT offensive game like the previous week against the bears or alex's last full game where he had a near perfect game.
look at the stats. the saints have given up an AVG of 298.3 passing yds/game this year! we didn't even come even close to that. I'm sure you'll make a bunch of alexcuses for that though right? They are also one of the worst defense at giving up 27.6pts/g. again without the defense scoring two TD's we would probably have been around the same or less. There's no alexcuses about the niners not wanting to run up the score either as the game was competitive throughout. Kap also had two absolutely terrible passes. the pick, and the should have been pick in the endzone.
I see the potential and am excited about kap also. If i were harbaugh I'd probably make the switch too due to the potential to stretch the field more and open up even more space for the running game. But the questions in this thread is was anyone unhappy with the offensive performance. I agree and I think the offense had a strong game but it wasn't impressive at all. Kap showed some impressive moments, but our offensive has had better days this year, including the previous game against the bears.
I know we are all waiting and dieing for the next joe montana to arrive, and we've all been dreaming about this so hard that when something like this happens that opens that sliver of hope, everyone get's all excited.....but that doesn't mean we have to blindly be proclaiming everything that kap does as amazing haha.
anyways tomorrow will be an interesting day with harbaugh's proclamation!
You should look up the word "analysis" and contrast that with the word "opinion." I have no issues with dissenting opinion or analysis, because I have no dog in this hunt...I'm a fan of Alex and Kap. I just think it's silly and childish to diminish a guy's performance ("Kap was nothing special; Alex would've done the same or better") based on a comparison of what you THINK the other guy could've done.
Is it too obvious for me to state that YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT ALEX WOULD OR WOULD NOT HAVE DONE? You really don't. He may have had the greatest performance in modern football history, he may have gotten his bell rung in the 1st quarter and left the game or he may have had just a mediocre outing....BUT YOU DON'T KNOW THAT. To just assume Alex could've done the same or better is just silly, and like I said before, it's not an analysis....it's just an opinion based on nothing but assumptions and it adds nothing to the discussion.
Comments like yours just spark a new round of Alex vs. Kap discussions, which are pointless, never-ending and futile.
All of that said, you're absolutely welcome to your opinions...as am I, so if I want to "face-palm" your reply, I can do so. I would hope that you would offer up something a little more thoughtful and constructive than essentially "my QB would've done better than your QB," but I can't control your posts. I can only comment on them, which I did.
