He's still the best thing to happen to this team in 10 years but this loss was just really disappointing for me.
Benching Smith could ruin a playoff run....that is a reality as of now and the grade reflects it. If Keaps trend keeps going south (like its been) we will struggle in every game.
My biggest fear was having this bite us in the ass, maybe next week its better but right now Jim looks like an idiot.
Jim looks like an idiot cuz they've won 2 out of 3 with kaepernick starting? He would've been 3-0 if Akers would've made that field goal. Do you really expect the niners to blowout every team? There's always going to be ugly wins or losses, even with your precious Alex smith at qb. Alex smith had his only good year because of harbaugh and now everyone wants to crown him as our franchise qb. The guy sucked for 6 out of 7 years, but now all of the sudden without him we can't make the playoffs??? Yeah right.
Chicago had a backup QB in that couldn't score any points or move the ball-thank you D
New Orleans has the worst D in the league and we scored 14 points off on turnovers-thank you D
St Louis couldn't score anything or move the ball-thank you D
We have had stellar defensive performances the past 3 weeks and all we needed to do was not screw up, today we screwed up big time. The difference between both guys is one will screw up more because he is an inexperienced QB.
Could Alex beat Chicago, yes.
Could Alex beat New Orleans, yes.
Could Alex beat St. Louis today, yes.
We win by playing smart football and by removing the smart element we handicap ourselves. If we lose against Miami we run a serious risk of not winning another game and having this whole thing blow up in our faces. I want Keap to win and look great but not with the hiccups of learning right now.
