Been said before:
Horrid O game plan. Bad D game plan. We needed a spy on Wilson and Lynch....there just weren't enoug guys to go around. That said, you can have a D plan around that...WE DIDN'T.
Play calling starting wth the long bomb from our 15 yd line in ice cold rain. Overthrown, like many of kap's long ones. Really poor choice considering weather and field position, which after two more incompletes, and a punt, gave the seahawks the ball on our 45. Now that is crappy play calling and not thinking ahead. To this point and thru 2nd qtr, roman called one series of bad plays after another. Into 3rd qtr, out came the playcall game board and coach H finished calling the game. But it was too late. Fangio gets bad marks too, but he was missing the heart of our D. RJF was just beaten by a guy with more talent, strength, experience. Still and all, playcalls on D stank.
when calling plays in 1st qtr, it looked like roman was calling plays to kaps arm strength, with 8,9 guys on LOS. Kap got the big rush, but don't you know those 1 to 3 steppers were open all nite. What the heck is this, Kap plays so we have to throw all long passes? That is stupid, when the short stuff they just gave us. I think roman has mental block with kap, not using him to dink and dunk , which he can do, but didn't. Had he done that, established the short passes, they would have backed off LOS and we could have gotten frank into the game. I also think the play book got dumbed down to fit Kaps abilities. That is a very bad idea, and if you do that, then put in alex.
We are getting snake bit again, like last part of season in 2011. Lost mario, lost justin, to go with kyle, hunter. Having AJ and LaMic come in and be there is a big plus. Losing justin....whew...they don't make scenarios to figure that out. His loss is devastating, assuming the reports are correct. I guess they could an emergency patch and guard it, but that would be bad medicine and would worsen justins condition. Besides he can't play all wrapped trying to protect a triceps tear. I think his season is just over. Whew...
I guess the only other comment would be regarding Kap. I hope this was a learning experience for him because:
You just don't throw huge beautiful rainbow passes that takes forever to get there, but hang the reciever, in this case vernon, out to dry. That is all on Kap. Second item is Kap... He is QB..at least right now. He had his raincoat on, had his head down and stared down at the ground most of the nite. He didn't talk with his OL, nor did he try and rally the troops. You don't see Brady or peyton do that when their team is getting beat. And frankly you didn't see alex do that. Kap has to change that and pronto.
As for Harbaugh, he has gone from going from coaching the game of his life to the worst memory of his coaching career. This seems to happen to him every third game. Is he out of it for a medical reason? I sure as heck would like to see him get a physical and neurologic exam before next game. Something is fishy when he looks like last yrs COY and then looks like a green steamer on the grass in the morning...every third game. There is a reason for this...I just don't happen to be smart enough to know what it is.
