Trust me they are calling plays so they can win it. If the WR consistently can't get open. They go to reliable Frank Gore.
Maybe now that CK is the QB, people can focus on this more than the QB.
This is BS, guys were doing fine out there today, the problem is the playcalling was just flat out stupid. They got the ball at midfield in OT, for any other top team in the league that's pretty much a guaranteed W at that point. Move the ball up 25-30 yards, kick the field goal and call it a day. Instead the 49ers went super conservative, started up with the BS non-productive runs again instead of staying aggressive and attacking down field.
Harbaugh going to Kaepernick makes even less sense if they are going to keep up with the same crappy conservative playcalling as usual. In that case, I'd rather have Alex in there if we know Roman is going to call a rubbish, vanilla game eitherway.
