SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS VS MIAMI DOLPHINS GAMEDAY THREAD (Week 14)

That said...that kind of run could save us if we were down 20-13. We just need to be way more consistent offensively.

I think we'd feel alittle bit better if we connected on that deep pass to Moss....but since we didn't its been a while since we had big passing plays...or heck attempt some.

I just don't get it, why why why were we comming out in that formation on 1st down each time? Maybe it was the gameplan JUST for this week. I really hope we don't see it much against the Patriots. I'd prefer regular formations....and PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEESE no more Jumbo packages!! I'd rather us spread the defense out in single back formation... or three wide with a FB and RB in the backfield... and run it from those formations.

i f**kin hate the Jumbo formations...they costs us that Giants playoff game as well....and so many situations this season..yet we still try to run it.

Kaepernick did not play in the spread much, that is where Smith thrives. JH is catering the offense to CK, a lot of pistol and bunch sets. While Colin himself may make some deep throws every now and then, the gameplan does not appear to be all that different at all.
Im hoping they were saving some great plays for the pats and seacocks.

They are a very good team. Better than their record.

I'd argue the opposite. I think they're good, but highly overrated and have benefited from boneheaded calls by the refs (see: them vs. Green Bay). Yes they are playing well now....but look at who they're playing against.
They've beaten good teams at home, but more crappy teams. Regardless, they are undefeated at home and we have to play there.

LMJ looked great. Why was he held out for so long? He needed to be out on the field sooner...we need all the playmakers we can get.


The biggest regret is the constipated playcalling though. We could field the Madden team for all intents and purposes, and Roman would lead it to field goals.

their D is physical, and their crowd will only eat up our penalty-prone OL
good teams will eat us up and spit us out if we struggle with penalities and mistakes. we got lucky today cuz miam is not good. what the hell do you think the pats and hawks will do with extra chances that we give them ???hmmmmm???
Crabs killed today
liked the effort today. Good win and gives us some MO going to the Pats. We are gonna really need to improve on O next week. I really think we need to run the ball more and then pass off of that. Seems like Jim is trying to hard to get Kap throwing when the running game is clearly our bread and butter. Would love to see us give the Pats a very healthy dose of Frank and James!!
Why am I not satisfied with this win?
Why is Eli even out there throwing the ball? The game is over.

How did we do against them on our own home field?

It was a close game with Alex.

This time Kap is going to be going into the loudest stadium in the league. What worries me greatly is how he'll do with audilbles and pre-snap reads. He's dong to a poor job now...and that's at home too.

I would be satisfied if it was against the Pats or Seattle, but Miami...meh.

I don't care how they win these next two weeks. Just get the win.
Kaepernick managed the game like Alex Smith, and then made a 'play-maker' Kaepernick play today, and that got us the win.

If anything I've learned over Kaep's first 4 starts is that the play-calling is terrible, and it's almost as if Kaep HAS to make something out of nothing (outside the shell) just to get something done.

cuz we played only two good quarters of football and did the same old s**tty mistakes we have done for the year. and because you know if we come out with the same type of effort and energy next sunday, we will get blown two ways to sunday. you are also worried cuz you are seeing seattle coming on strong and we at times do our best keystone cops impression. that is why you are not satisfied and are worried about this team and you are justified

I agree. Going in our favor is that he seemed to handle the noise well at the Super Dome. But Seattle is a different beast.

We'll see.

No, but I can show you what he does against Chicago.

Makes you wonder what Alex could do against Chicago if they had no tape on him.

I saw the way he played when teams had no tape on him. It's called his rookie year.

If you base any opinion on Alex Smith based on his rookie year that's pretty sad

I base it on everything I've seen from him thus far. The only time teams didn't have tape on him was his rookie year so my point is relevant. And the only thing that's sad is his how long it's taken him to be a decent quarterback.

You're a smart poster but it's a horrible argument. Kaep has had Harbaugh from the start, Kaep sat a year, Kaep has a very very talented team that has helped him and Alex win. Alex inherited the least talented, worst 49ers team of the last 35 years. Alex's second year, with a team that was still horrendous was pretty solid. Comparing them both in their second seasons, comparing the large gap of talent and coaching, your argument doesn't hold up nearly as well as you think it does.

I will support the starter but I won't bash either guy in the process.

I'm not the one who brought up the "no tape" argument. Smith has had Harbaugh AND over a year of experience in his offense. The differences between the two quarterbacks are negligible at this point IMHO. That shouldn't be the case. The offense should have been firing on all cylinders with Smith behind center. It just hasn't been. He has some nice efficient stats but watching him tells a completely different story.
