This is EXACTLY how I feel. I thought the point of having Kaepernick start was so that they could open up the offense a bit more, take some shots down the field to make the D honest. Now they're not even doing that. Those big plays were supposed to offset Kaep's inexperience.
The coaching staff is retarded. If they're going to keep this up then they might as well put Smith back in. He's better at being Alex Smith than Kaepernick is. At the very least we wouldn't have to listen to the constant crying coming from the Smith bandwagon.
or maybe it was never Alex, just how the plays were called
I'm convinced it was both. Kaepernick has proven he can make throws that scare defenses. No one was afraid of Smith going deep.
You need a link to believe that? Sure, why not. I'll dig up torrent links for every game he's ever played.
This is what Alex does to the Rams
Can you show me what Kaep does against the Rams?
No, but I can show you what he does against Chicago.
was that a deep throw that he cant connect?? Anywho
Needed the win. On to NE
How many of those throws has he made or even come close to making this year? Better yet, how many in his career?
I support both QBs. Who ever is in but man, that O today was just disappointing. Played so bad against a sucky Dolphins pass defense. If it was a better team we wouldn't have won that game. 49ers offense is just not working like I thought it would this year. Very boring and full of penalties.

PI or not, it should have been caught. He also ran for a score. Again, I'd be right with you if the guy he's replacing was a TD machine, but he isn't. He averaged 1TD/game last year. Why must it matter how Kaep scores TD's? A TD is a TD.
gimmicks dont work against good teams.....Miami is not a good team
Alex was on pace for a strong amount of TD's this year. If we are going to rely on Keaps legs to score we will lose against good teams with strong D's
lol at the people acting like they had a part in the decision and are taking offense. defending alex etc.....just get over it and support the team we won and all there is going to be is a bunch of pointless arguing and complaining....fact is you have no crystal ball and cant guarantee alex would do better..were 9-3-1 relax
