I agree Marvin on Kaep, as long as he learns from his errors, experience can only help him. To me he seems a fast learner. The one thing I noticed yesterday was his hesitance on scrambling and he slid very quickly many a time. That is normal for a QB, but it has not been normal for Kaep until yesterday.
The defense, last year they stopped the run almost every game, they stopped it cold. This year no--teams run good enough on the Niners that the D has to play both the run and the pass honest--so the pass rush is a tad less this season. I am not sure if it is Parys Harralson missing the season--was he the difference or is it the D line not being as good this season? Aldon still learning?
The Niners have to stop the silly costly after the play is over personal fouls--Brocks 15 yards giving seattle the ball at the 35--just dumb, the Niners had to take the crowd out of the game, not feed the crowds intensity.
Seattle had a very good offensive game plan, they seemed to be able to get an open receiver--be it a WR, TE , RB, FB much better than the Niners were able to get open receivers. The Seattle short passing game was much better than the Niners. If I was Roman I would try to add in some of what Seattle does to the Niners offense.
I am very disappointed that AJ Jenkins is not playing, we really could use a supposedly fast player with good hands, but maybe he just isn't that good? What we are seeing this season is a huge impact by the 2012 draft class in the NFL , but the Niners are one of the exceptions, if Jenkins has the talent he really should have been in the mix.
The Niners not getting the play off on time---this has been the case since 2005--it is very frustrating. Last year it seemed to have been fixed, now it is back again.
Akers---I am not sure if the block was because it was a low kick or Akers just has no luck this season. Anyways we needed to score the TD, like above--Seattle seems to have great play calls on converting third downs or redzone--the Niners --this is a big trouble spot.
I think the Vikings will beat the Packers and the Niners still get the bye--crossing my fingers.
