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?
Oh, maybe because he's a football coach and studies his opponents.
You know, to learn their weaknesses an stuff.
Or are you thinking that those reports about Harbaugh and his staff watching Seattle games ON THE PLANE RIDE BACK FROM NE had to do with them just being bored on a long flight?
