5 fumbles and a pick

No, it's just an excuse for you to justify his 4 passing touchdowns. Alex has benefitted from those circumstances a million times as well.

Call me next time we're in freezing rain and Kaep has issues with 4 or 5 snaps..until that happens, which will be never, I will enjoy the 4 TD performance since we haven't had that in a decade. I'll feel even better keeping in mind this rookie played a major if not the key role in beating a team who was riding a ten year winning streak at home in December, and we did it against a defense that held "the best team in football" to 3 points last week. Cheers, Kaep! Suck on, trolls

it could be cold and raining next week in Sea
Kill thread, idiot!

I'll show you the stat that we were #1 in field position last year and led the league in turnovers.

Don't discount Colin's play just because of field position... he made some great reads and throws. Just some mistakes that luckily didn't cost us the game. Any one of those fumbles or even that second pick could have literally lost this game.

Would also like to see him check out of runs when they show a blitz in the gap Gore is supposed to be hitting...

i feel it is right to praise kaepernick for what i think was his best game, despite the botched snaps and the interception..but if you want to take a pot shot at smith then you need to hear that kaerpernick had some problems tonite which may end up costing the niners in the playoffs

*an overthrow of davis for a sure td
*davis only 1 catch in entire game--still no kaerper-chemistry
*the 4 tds were vs one of the worst pass defenses in the league--
*none of the passes tonite for tds were into particularly tight windows--on the 1st moss and wlaker had both beaten the coverage, no one tried to pick up walker until it was way too late---and the td to crabtree to seal win was low, so that crabtree's going down and forward for the ball helped him move out of the grasp of the tackler
* 3 and out in 3rd quarter more than once to allow pats back into the game

im done with these points, ready to move on, go on record that i still feel that harbaugh made the wrong choice in making the qb switch but that i cant do anything but accept it and root for niners this year to go to the big game and for smith to hook up with a good team in 2013 (btw the way goldson is playing i dont think smith's salary is going to be enough to resign him)---if the usual suspects still feel the need to prop kaepernick by bashing smith, you can debate it with others

this is the worst analysis i've ever read


and your comment is so illuminating--why dont you tell me where im wrong? maybe my stats are not up to date and the pats have the best pass defense in the league --i dont think...maybe davis caught more than 1 pass and i missed it--cmon share your wisdom with me

it's a completely slanted, biased analysis

all the talk coming into the game was how much the new england defense had improved, how belichick would scheme colin to death. he threw 4 TDs against the number #1 team in the league @NE. "none of his passes were into tight windows" are you kidding me?

if you wanna criticize him (and i know you're dying to), his fumbled snaps are a legit problem. he needs to get that s**t corrected. but all in all the positives GREATLY outweigh the negatives.


i thought so

You guys were raving about his qb rating and I simply pointed out the fact that it doesn't account for fumbles or starting field position. Not sorry if you have a problem with that.

No question he made great throws and, minus the fumbles, played great overall.

And the end of the world could happen this Friday. Until the freak performance happens twice...excuse me if I think it's more extraordinary to throw 4 td's in the freezing rain than to have trouble hanging onto the ball. As you recall..there were several people having trouble hanging onto the ball. But there was only one guy who threw for 4 td's...and it wasn't the best QB to play the game who was on the other sidelines. He had more pics than scores

Overthrow to Davis. -- That was a rough one. Missed him by about two feet. Would have been huge. However, in the past, we rarely even ATTEMPT a pass like that. Vernon was running directly away from Kaep on a line. He had no angle whatsoever to tell how fast he was running. That is the toughest throw a quarterback can attempt. Nice to see that we at least tried to hit it.

Davis; one catch. -- Kaep looks to his receivers a lot. Notice the word "receiver"? That is their job, to receive. Vernon Davis used to be our ONLY real threat. Now, everyone on the field has a chance to be a threat.

The 4 TDs are "only because of..." -- Excuses for throwing four touchdowns, sound a lot better than excuses for NOT throwing four touchdowns. Don't you think?

None of the passes... -- Again, see above. Plus, the throw to Crabtree was low, but it got to him FAST, giving him enough space to make a move. Also, it's much easier to make a move after a slightly low pass, then make a move after having to leap high into the air to catch a pass with your fingertips. Plus, the tight 60mph throw to Crabtree right between two defenders was noticed by more than just the TV crew, even if you did not see it.

3 n' out in 3rd quarter -- As if we never had problems with 3 n' outs in the past? Also, Kaep does not play on defense, so he couldn't do anything about the Patriots scoring points.

And some of that great field position was squandered as well. Delanie fumble, missed field goal, failed 4th down conversion.

You don't put up 41 points without turnovers and special teams play.
Most of the fumbles happened under center....the shotgun/pistol snaps were fine. In fairness to Kap, I think Goodwin deserves some measure of the blame.

best part of 2nd td to crabtree was that kaerpernick recognized the blitz and that the db had no help and got him the ball

as far as the receivers, kaepernick has chemistry with crabtree, but moss had no catches after 1st drive--i dont think any others did fir entire game--will be interesting to see what happens if richard sherman can outmuscle crabtree next week and take him out of game, if kaerpernick can get something going wiith the other receivers
First of all I think it was messed up on how Smith lost his job, but I am begining to see why. Kap has better arm and legs. Harbaugh thinks colin can be taught how not to lose the game. Kaep allows the playbook more versatile with the read option. They ran it so much today u can see the defense afraid of him running it. People are going gonna hate unless he wins a sb.
