no killer instincts going against a team thats further down the table? It should have been over leading up to half time.

Hunter

Thanks, I didn't know anything about Hunter until you just mentioned it here.

LMJ could have been used as a third down back, not the backup like Hunter used to be.

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.
if he played like alex and the offense was the same as when alex was in, why make a qb change? you change for a strong armed quarterback then throw the god damn ball

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.

Smith was on fire the week prior to getting hurt

Don't understand, it went as exactly as we expected. -Dolphins showed life, and then withered out. -We just didn't expect all those b******t penalties to happen, which kept them in the game, and not over before halftime.
The first win against Seattle wasn't enough to tell you were better who cares about there house let's be the first to defeat them

still kind of funny how so many act like they just woke up out of a coma and are just seeing our pass protection is horses**t as are the number of penalties called on us, wonder why that is?

Exactly, although the play-calling has still showed some balls on first downs in the redzone, barring failure, it seems like we go into the fetal position. -Play-calling way different than the first two games. Rams game we went ultra-conservative, and too f**king 'cute' with that pitch and the mistakes following cost us the game.

Roman has an explosive offense, and he's not letting it fly.

It just hasn't been. He has some nice efficient stats but watching him tells a completely different story.

Yeah if Kaep is doing this in his second season and equaling Smith for the most part, he is the future. He doesn't throw as many TDs yet, isn't as good with his reads but his arm and legs make those almost negligible. What I don't want is a cold Smith having to come in to a playoff game if Kaep can't handle the situation. Even some very good QBs have struggled in the playoffs early in their career (Manning and now Ryan comes to mind). In the playoffs experience can be paramount, limiting errors is huge, I'm just worried that we're entrusting our playoffs to a kid who's never been there before.

I fully recognize that Kaep will eventually need to experience the playoffs and we should not shelter him, it just seems like we can win it all this year if we can get decent, consistent production out of our QBs. Smith was giving us that in large part and did not lose his job. Kaep's play and production is a lot like Smith's which does not necessarily justify the change in the eyes of many IMO.
Basically, where we are right now (thanks to being (0-1-1) vs. the Lambs), is that we have to win 1 of the next 2 games for sure in order to win the division, and we may need to win out completely to secure the #2 seed.

We still control our own destiny...that's the good news. If we can win out...we'll be the #2 seed.

What gets me about Harbaugh (who I am extremely pissed with right now), is that he gambled with our playoff positioning like this.

He's also eating a fat cock when it comes to in game decisions...he's a game manager who's rivaling Singletary in acumen.

he has a strong armed qb in there so there is no reason why he is not letting it fly as you say., does he not trust ck? does he not trust the offensive line? something is up
