everyne fell in love ith Kaeps ability to make big plays, but failed to realise that the Offense with AS at the helm was much more suited to our defense due to long clock eating, drives..
A big play is fine and dandy, but sustained drives are more important when you have an elite defense to rely on.
the short passes smith was throwing were more conducive---and crabtree wasnt breaking alot of them for nice gains after the catch
the pistol offense is more like a derringer
Another thing is AS was much more efficient running th offence. We should not be dumbing down an offense at this point in the season.
Another thing that worries me, especially after this game, as Kaep was staring down his receivers really badly. That as something alot of people criticised smith for, and smith IMO was never near as bad at that as Kaep as in this game.
I still think Kaep will probably be OK in the long run, but it has become clear that coach made a horrible decision benching AS, and it has probally cost us our super bowl run.
For all the praise he rightfully earned last season, he has been almost the exact opposite this season. He deserves alot if not most of the blame for the shortcomings of this team.
Game plan was aful this week. Frank Gore made a name for himself against Seattle and we come out gunslinging? Still cant fix the play clock issues? f**king made me sick quite frankly.
