QB change midseason
Hate to say it but it makes a lot of sense. Every team goes through growing pains in the beginning of the year (patriots lost to the cardinals). The problem is that the QB change, regardless of who is QB, made the team adjust what it was doing and added more growing pains. So while teams like Green Bay are gelling for a playoff push, were still figuring out how to run our offense. I think Kaep is the QB of the future and I like what I see from him. I just wish Harbaugh would have waited to make the switch until the offseason, or at least done it early this year rather than week 10.
One other thing is this schedule has been brutal for the niners. I don't think I've ever seen a team have to travel to GB, Seattle, New England, and New Orleans in the same year. All things considered, they went 3-1 on those games. That tells me that the team can beat anyone but they're going to need to figure out this red zone offense because its atrocious.
