I have come to the conclusion that Kaepernick is the starting QB for the Niners . . . at least in part because Harbaugh saw the success that Russell Wilson has had in Seattle and wanted to do everything he could to stay ahead of Pete Carroll.
Wilson took over in Seattle by beating out two veteran QBs for the job. He's got their offense on the move, improving, using all their weapons and scoring lots of points. He's not afraid to run the option and has a good arm and good instincts. He's very mobile, can run the ball if necessary and is good at avoiding pass rush.
It just seems like the Niners saw that its possible to bring in a young, talented QB who's a hard worker and put the offense into his hands. Thats been true this season in Indy and Washington, and in Seattle.
And I believe that after seeing Russell Wilson perform, week in and week out, in Seattle, Harbaugh and the NIners coaching staff decided to make the move to Kaepernick, who brings many of the same qualities--and more--to the field each week.
Plus he's tall enough to see over the o-line.
Beat the Seasmurfs!
We didnt learn s**t from the SeaChickens or Pete the Cheat. Why the hell would Harbaugh look towards Seattle for any ideas?
I think its funny that all the Seahawks fans are talking loud this week about beating up on the 49ers. I'd like to take this opportunity to point out the ridiculousness of the following information....
Seahawks road games not including division opponents
@ Chicago, @ Miami, @Detroit, @Carolina, @Buffalo
49ers road games not including division opponents
@ Green Bay, @New Orleans, @ New England, @Minnesota, @New York Jets
Here's to a great game this weekend and make sure all you over confident Seahawks fans scream extra loud in unison with the piped in fake croud noise because the entire NFL world knows your team can't hang without it!

Hello Niner fans.
I am only here for smack talk, I am on your forums so ill be as respectful to your members. Atleast ill only give what i get in that sense.
I'm not here to ask for respect for the Seahawks, You're niner fans, you dont have to respect them. And honestly i hope you dont ( because wheres the fun in that?)
But i just want to get my foot in the door with trash talk that way after the Hawks win, (not IF they win, but WHEN they win) i can return here and rub your faces in it. And not just show up after the win, a build up to it.
So let me start.
Its funny how you joke about this game only being the most rowdy on Sunday because of how rare playoff opportunities are. Ease up, Niners have 1 good season over the seahawks in the past little over a decade. This is has been our division for the decade, we were just renting it to you >=) for a season. We can still win it this season too ( probably not, i have no faith in the Cards)
I keep hearing about how Wilson, Rice, Tate, Baldwin, and so on, will have a tough day getting hit, Maybe true. BUT i seem to recall even in the last game at home, Lynch delivering more hits to your defense, more than hits he was taking. You should be more concerned about that. Just like Seahawks defense will need to worry about stopping Gore.
Niners AT Seahawks...believe the hype.
Remember...the team that goes into the playoffs hot is the most dangerous, Yes when the Seahawks win, they wont be in first place. BUT they will be riding an impressive winning streak into the playoffs...where as the Niners can just have a 1 game streak...hardly classifies as being " hot"
dont care if Tl;DR. Thought id come out swinging in enemy territory
how many superbowl trophies the hawks got? enough said. kiss the rings baby
